For those of you who missed the news on Instagram or Facebook, the potential adopter did not make it here to meet Aurora and Stardust, and opted to wait and see if they’re still available after Thanksgiving. So the girls went to Petsmart on Friday along with Mercury, Telstar and Hubble. The kittens are in one (large) cage, and Mercury’s in a cage by herself. The boys were nervous when I put them in the cage, the girls were ready to play, and Mercury curled up in her bed and went to sleep. There were no adoptions over the weekend, but hopefully soon. (I will, of course, let y’all know when adoptions happen.)

Here are the last of the pictures I took of them, about ten minutes before I put them into carriers and took them off to Petsmart. I have to say – Mercury and her kittens are very quiet travelers; I only heard the occasional questioning meow on the drive from here to Petsmart, which was a drive of about 45 minutes.

It looks like I’m lecturing Aurora here, but I was actually reaching in to scratch her forehead.

Hubble and his mama.

His little face is cracking me UP.

Stardust. Is it just me, or has this been the MOST beautiful litter?

Stardust has places to GO. See ya!

It has been SO quiet here this weekend without those kittens and Mercury running around upstairs. I’m always surprised at just how much I miss them. I hope their people come along very soon.


Uh oh. I’m not sure what you did, but Sheriff Mama (Kara) KNOWS about it, and she’s coming to give you what-for. Look at that face – she’s not foolin’!

  1. These are the most lovely pictures of this fabulous litter and their Mama – may they all find wonderful forever homes soon!

  2. Yes, may these beauties find the finest families very soon. And I do hope that Mercury continues to enjoy her well-earned rest. Fingers crossed for them and all who await homes — and for ferals everywhere.

  3. I hope they find their perfect forever homes soon!!! So pretty, so sweet. Be happy, little ones!!

  4. Well wishes to them all. If Aurora and Stardust are still available in a couple weeks then I certainly hope the prospective adopters go pick them up right away.

    I need Sheriff Mama to come over to my house and put the smack down on Pippin. He’s taken to chasing Pogo again. Goes in stages, he and his brother will chase him for a week or so and then not even look his way for another week or two. They’re such brats but I do love them so.

  5. They are the most beautiful! And such striking eyes, always so expressive and curious. I know their families will come along soon!

    Uh oh is right! Sheriff Mama looks annoyed…

    • Is she like GrumpyCat? She might look annoyed, but the tail flagged high tells me a different tale (tail?)

  6. They are indeed very beautiful kittens with a beautiful mama. But, Nola and baybees were/are also beautiful, as well as Belle’s bunch. I love them all. (I’ve only been following since Nola et al. were in residence). I hope they all have homes soon. I hope there are people looking for pets, even though the holidays seem to be upon us.

    If Sheriff Mama straightens out other cats, can she come visit us awhile? My 12 yo male and new-to-us 4 yo female are not getting along. As in FurFlyingNotGettingAlong. 🙁 Getting some sense slapped into them would be nice. 😉
