Throw Back Thursday: Inara (now Dora).
Six years ago, we got our very first pregnant foster cat. She’d shown up on someone’s front porch, super friendly and super pregnant. We only had her for a day before she went into labor and presented us with four tiny kittens, who we named River, Inara, Kaylee and Zoe (they were named after characters from the series/movie Firefly & Serenity, a show I hadn’t watched, but I liked the names a lot, even though River was female in the show/movie and River the kitten was male.)
That mama kitty was the cat y’all now know as Sheriff Mama (Kara); today’s TBT is focused on Inara (now Dora), who was adopted and went straight from Crooked Acres to her forever home.
Look! A progression picture, from back in the days when I was even the slightest bit organized! Oh, 2008 Robyn, come teach me your organized ways.
Dora at 6 days old, 10 days old, 15 days old, three weeks, and four weeks.
And here she is, six years later. All grown up, and gorgeous as can be.
She looks like she’s got a bit of the not-approving-of-your-shenanigans attitude like Kara! Sheriff Dora?

Curled up in her daddy’s jeans.
Thank you for the pictures, Katherine! You know I love seeing her sweet face. I can’t believe she’s 6 1/2 already!
All the kittens except Catelyn (who has already been spayed) are off for their spays and neuters this morning! Catelyn will be an “only child” for the day, hopefully she won’t be too lonely.
Speaking of the feather teaser, the other night I was teasing the kittens with it, and Catelyn started doing this barely-audible chattering that was so adorable I had to make a video (I also posted a picture over on Instagram).
