Winn Dixie in the sun. Oh, the FLOOF.

Ralph has hit the beginning of his long ‘n lanky stage.


Miss Von and her ear floof.

I love the purply blue around the outside of his irises.

Check out that gorgeous curly fur on Winn Dixie.

Gorgeous girl.

Ralph’s got places to GO, y’all.

He loves that catnip toy.

Trader Joe, such a little NUT.

I think Ralph woke up with Trader Joe flopped over him, and didn’t know what had happened.




Video! I slowed this one down to half-speed because half-speed jumping kittens are funny (well, at least to me) and this video cracks me UP.

  1. Thank you so much for the half-speed video. In no way could the kittens’ antics be appreciated at regular speed. 🙂

  2. Trader Joe, oh your precious little ink-dipped toebeans. You’re a heartbreaker as well as a nut!

  3. I think I need a road trip to get a Trader Joe. That kitten is getting under my skin like no other.

    • I’m already on the road for him! You are too late…and I think I will steal Von and WD whilst I am at it! LOL

      Actually I would if I could, so PLEASE go get him (ok, and all the others) so we will forever get updates and pictures!!! 🙂

    • Hmmmmnnnnhmmmm yesssss. Once on a trek through Afghanistan we lost our catnip … and were forced to live on food and water for several days.

  4. Robyn Hi from San Francisco. I read your posts every day with my morning coffee. Ive had rough year (breast cancer) and your posts always brighten my mornings. You make a difference not just with your fur babies and permanent critters in residence, but for us too! Thank you for all you do.

    I’d like to put out a PSA if I may? Years ago my torbie Gidget ate some curling ribbon …the kind you wrap presents with. She almost died. As the season for decorations and gift wrapping is approaching, fellow cat lovers watch the ribbon, yarn, etc. Pass it on!

    • Hi Charlotte, and thank you for reading! I’m glad you’re finding the posts a bright spot in your day – and thanks for the reminder, I’ll post it in tomorrow’s entry.

      I have gotten so lazy in the last several years that I slap wrapping on the presents we’re giving, and don’t even put ribbons on them. 🙂

      • To Charlotte, I hope things are going well for you and join you in saluting and thanking Robyn and her power for good (and chortles). Also, ribbons — far too ambitious! Ditto for yarn.

  5. Ralph is a little WC Fields with his cigar, saying hello my little chickadee !!!

    Hello Charlotte ! Yes I feel the same way about the whole gang at Crooked Acres !! They are the best pick me up ! Also everyone whole follows L & H, they have helped me through some tough times.

    I also had had a cat that ate some small twisted garland one Christmas. Since then I never put garland or tinsel on my trees. It is scary what these things can do to a cats innards. Keep all your critters safe !!!

    • Well, that’s a good question. I have no idea why it disappeared, or why I can’t get it to look like it did. It’s there for now, but I may have to tinker!

      • Okay, I think that’s about what it looked like before, am I right? I had to download a new plugin, and for the life of me I can’t remember how it looked before.

    • Got to admit I am snark-laughing at the 2008 posts this week – Kara had already found her home… I adore that feisty gal!

      Love the half-speed videos – kittens look whacky. More please (more videos, more kittens)!
