Oh, that d’Artagnan. I could squoosh him!

Charlie LOVES that bed.

Porthos checks out Uncle Newt while he’s sleeping.

And later, while playing, d’Artagnan and Porthos knocked their toy under his bed and had to retrieve it, and Newt woke up grumpy.

Athos and d’Artagnan are waiting for birds.


Annie Oakley finds this basket to her liking.

Pile o’ cute in the crate.

Not the greatest picture of Hush Puppy, but it shows his tail nub well.

Funnel Cake shows of HIS tail nub.

Annie Oakley has the coolest markings.

Tater Tot keeps an eye on things.

Davy Crockett is seriously CUTE.

Pretzel checks the structural integrity of the crate before she climbs up the side.

The kittens are doing well – everyone’s playing, everyone’s eating, everyone’s gaining weight (though Wild Bill Hickok would like the world to know that he’s being starved TO DEATH and he would like this situation rectified immediately. Pay no attention to the fact that he gained 3 ounces in 2 days.)

To be honest, it doesn’t actually seem like 15 kittens in that room – it seems like maybe 10. Except when I’m medicating them, and then it seems like 142. (I kid – it only takes about 20 minutes to medicate them all, and most of that time is double-checking my chart to be sure the dose is right and then tracking down the correct kitten.)


Just a reminder that Khal Drogo is one magnificent dude.

  1. Love-your-vids! Check out those nub tails on YT! Talk about dying of cute. I can’t stand it!

    Is there a story of how you came upon so many at one time? Hope it doesn’t push any buttons by asking.

  2. Since this group has so many look-a-likes (in addition to Winter/Tater I think the black ones look similar to others of the past), is there a chance they are distantly related? Kitten genealogy seems way easier than REAL genealogy in that they aren’t all named Mary Elizabeth Smith or John Johnson.

    • Well I’m not going to trim 15 kittens’ nails at once. I’ll do ’em in batches (though I’m sure that will also require a chart so I can keep track of who’s been done.)

  3. I love seeing all the new kittens, and that’s a great picture of Athos and d’Artagnan looking up for birds!

  4. Just me or do they already look a bit more bright-eyed?! The accommodations are wonderful with you!! Love the videos, and all the pics, of course!
    THANK YOU so very much for what you go through for all the furbabies. Ha, Fred offering to adopt and then quit fostering…
