Ralph and the crazy eyes (and Von’s favorite toy. She better not see him playing with that!)

Winn Dixie in the basket. She loves hanging out in that thing – no soft bed or blankets, just the basket and some toys.

Von fell asleep on her tummy with her legs stretched out behind her, and then Trader Joe fell asleep in a position looking very much like he was diving into sleep, and it was so cute I wanted to wake them both up and squeeze them.

Water must be fresher at the top of the fountain.

Von, bright-eyed and ready to go!

Ralph, lookin’ grumpy. Look at the size of those paws! Not surprisingly, Ralph was the first one over the 2 pound mark. The others haven’t crossed it yet, but it won’t be long.

PW (who I am currently calling “Pee Dubs”) and the crazy eyes.

Sunny PW.

“Am having quiet time, lady. You go ‘way.”

PW is skeptical.

Trader Joe. That floof is just insane, isn’t it?


Video! All the clips in this video were shot with my iPhone, so take that into account. Basically, it’s the kittens running around and jumping on each other.

Joe Bob is refining his hibernating skillz so he’ll be all set when winter gets here.

  1. Robyn, do you have a problem with the cats or kittens playing in that water fountain? My cat loved to stop the waterfall with his paw. He’d just sit there and watch it overflow from the top level onto the floor, until it was empty. I ended up getting a different style that he cannot play in (although he tries).

  2. That pic of Von stretched out with her little white go-go boots? PRICELESS
    And the one of her all bright-eyed & galloping toward you? ADORABLE
    How do you even stand it? My god, woman… you are made of stronger stuff than I.

  3. Happy Anniversary, Love and Hisses! 🙂 6 Years of SQUEE if my calculations are correct! 🙂

  4. I don’t know if it’s the kittens themselves or your inspired captions and commentary, but this seems to be one of the most adorable litters you have had yet.

  5. LOVE the video!!! This is, no question, one of the cutest batches of kittehs I think you’ve fostered. Von and PW are unspeakably adorable, so much so it’s all I can do to keep from jumping in the car for a Houston/Alabama roadtrip. SQUEE!!!

    • Uh cute? More like scary. Gari isn’t sharing that turkey.

      I bet though that he snuggles up a storm with that little girl at night, when no one can see him doing it.

  6. That picture of the two sleeping looks like they were chasing each other and then got attacked by a case of the sleepies. SO CUTE!

  7. Robyn this batch of kittens is killing me dead. I want to drive to Alabama in the middle of the night and steal them all.

    On a side note, I’ve been meaning to ask you for a long time if all is well with Jane. I miss her a lot and I hope she’s well.
