I managed, just barely, to get a shot of all 11 kittens, right before LoJack noped on out of there.

Left to right: Pulley, Gauge, Tank, Clutch, Dynamo, Cam, Solenoid, Cruise, Fender, Axle and (most of) LoJack.

I bought that little pop-up cave at Petsmart, and they love it. They spend the day pushing it around the entire upstairs.

Pulley sniffing my foot to see where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing.

Fender, wondering if he could make the jump from the top of the cat tree to my shoulder (he decided it was too far.)

Cruise is a quiet girl until you get the feather teaser out, and then she chatters at it.

Solenoid, checking out the ceiling fan.

“Gimme the feather teaser and no one gets hurt, lady.” (Cruise)

Sweet Solenoid (yeah, there’s a feather teaser up there.)

Dynamo, Pulley, and Axle.

Tank would like you to know that “Tank” is the perfect name for him. When I brought him home Tuesday afternoon, he weighed 2 pounds, 5 ounces. When I weighed all the kittens Friday morning, he weighed THREE POUNDS. He put on 11 ounces in less than three days with us! (The weight gain has slowed – I weighed him again yesterday morning, and he’d only put on an ounce since Friday. He is a solid little thing for sure, though.)

Remember how, back in September, Arundel was fascinated by the fan sitting next to my bed, and she’d sit there and stare at it and I wondered what was up with that? THEN I realized that the center of the fan was mirrored and she was basically staring at herself and admiring her own beauty?

Well, these kittens have discovered the mirror in the middle of the fan, too.





Dewey wonders if it might be snack time, please?

  1. Regarding 2010 and “There’s just nothing on earth the Bookworms enjoy more than a good sniff of another cat’s behind.”
    I’ve had this earworm for weeks, with the lyrics changed, and this seems like the time to see if sharing it will get rid of it for me. To the melody of “Do Your Ears Hang Low”, I offer – “Do You Wanna See My Butt”:
    Do you wanna see my butt?
    In know you wanna see my butt
    You know it’s little and it’s cute, I know you wanna see my butt
    You must wanna see my butt, it’s right hear underneath my tail
    Does my butt smell good?
    My apologies….

  2. LOL at the fan mirror! Arundel/Arwen would like you to know she’s the prettiest kitten of them all!

    • He’s doing great – he’ll be at the bottom of tomorrow’s post (and I’ll answer this question more fully in tomorrow’s post, too.)

  3. I seem to remember that Dewey was more of a cat’s cat. Is that still the case, or has he warmed up to his human servants?
