I showed up at Petsmart last night to drop Ralph, Catelyn and PW off, and in less than an hour this had happened:
(I had forgotten what a silly, sweet round little baby face Ralph had when I first got them. He turned into such a sleek and slinky boy that seeing his baby face makes me want to squoosh him again!)
They were both adopted, but not together. There was a bit of drama on Ralph’s part (I think he was a little freaked out by all the strange cats, even though they were in cages), but I’m sure once he got home, he was fine.
This leaves poor sweet PW in a cage by himself. He was the most freaked-out of the three, and was actually spitting at one point (which is probably what started Ralph down the drama road), but hopefully he’ll calm down and relax.
Adoption hours take place again tonight, so maybe it’ll be his turn to find a home!
I only sent those pictures in because Paula K. mentioned that they’d be perfect for Cute Overload’s Nose-vember, so thanks for the suggestion, Paula!
Would love to get some feedback from the L&H readership. I’m trying my hand at t-shirt designs. What I’ve been enjoying is designing t-shirts targeted at cat lovers, specifically, and animal lovers more generally. Would love to get your thoughts on this one as this is the first that’s actually an original (well, I took a well-known quote and added to it) and is targeted at Tortie-lovers: http://teespring.com/tortietude
I think it’s absolutely adorable!
Aww, I love that you are calling her Miss Vonnie now. Von always did sound like a boy’s name to me.
I, too, love the name “Miss Vonnie”. It’s not too girly and it just seems to suit her even at this young age, so I’m sure it will even be appropriate when she’s much older (but she will always be Vonniebooboo in my head for some reason, lol).
I’ve been calling her “Miss Vonnie” since shortly after she was named, but never thought to call her that here in the blog. I think it suits her.
I’m assuming that either Ralph or Trader Joe were the culprits behind the chewing of PW’s apparently-tasty whiskers.
I’m positive that Ralph is the whisker chewer. He and PW like to curl up together at night, and Trader Joe is missing a lot of his whiskers, too. In fact, the ONLY kitten who isn’t missing any whiskers at all is Ralph. Which, to be honest, isn’t very smart of him. You’d think he’d chew off one or two of his own whiskers, just to throw me off the track!
Robyn, I can’t believe that you’re introducing narcotic substances to underage felines. You’re contributing to the delinquency of a minor! Thankfully some of those kids are smart enough to realize that “the green isn’t cool!”
Hey, it’s legal! I ain’t breakin’ any laws! And they like it soooo much!
I know that there are quite a few sites/places which do the printing on canvas. Do you have one that you have had good luck with and recommend?
I really really like Collage. I got a Living Social deal through them, used it for the canvas of the Myrtle Beach sunrise that’s hanging over my bed, and was very pleased.
The other place I used (for the canvases of Miz Poo and Tubby) has now gone out of business, unfortunately, because I was pleased with their work, too.
My advice is to get a deal through Living Social or Groupon or the like. My experience has been that they’re worth it!
That chattering! OMG, that has got to be the cutest thing I ever heard! Does she meow at all, or just chatter? This group is too cute!
She does meow, she does it when something displeases her – every now and then she’ll sit at the bottom of the stairs and howl, because she doesn’t think she should be confined to the upstairs during the day with the PEASANTS. Here’s some video proof for you – though to be honest, she’s usually MUCH louder than that.
And speaking of chattering…
According to this, Miz Robyn and Fred must be two of the least stressed people around!
You know it! 🙂
