THANK YOU, everyone who bid on (and donated!) items for the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville auction! It ended Saturday evening, and there were so many bids coming through in the last few moments that I thought I was going to keel over from the excitement. (I don’t watch sports, but I imagine this is what watching the superbowl is like – though instead of rooting for one favorite team, I was rooting for EVERYONE!)

The amount of total bids added up to $7,550, which is awesome! That won’t be the total that ends up going to Forgotten Felines (there will be shipping fees and other associated fees), but that is a great number to start from. Given that we’ve got TEN (of just MY) kittens going for spay/neuters tomorrow (and the other 5 in a week), that’s some sorely needed money.

So again, thank you all for your support. It is very much appreciated!


Snowcone’s color is really starting to come in – the faint orangey-cream on his legs is so pretty. I think he looks a little like a lightly toasted marshmallow these days.

Calamity Jane’s enjoying the view. (The next door neighbors have a little dog and the kittens can sometimes see her.)

Clearly there’s nothing more comfortable than dirty laundry.

I think French Fry, Davy Crockett and Funnel Cake were having a meeting I wasn’t invited to.

Annie Oakley has an opinion and she always looks so amused.

I tossed these blankets on the floor because they needed to be washed. Kittens piled on and I thought “Oh, I’ll just leave them there!” Whereupon they never piled on again. Because: kittens.

French Fry could use a kiss.

Hush Puppy, Buffalo Bill, Davy Crockett and Annie Oakley pile on for a snuggle.

Hush Puppy – have I mentioned? – is just so stinkin’ cute.

I took this picture thinking that it would be a good “Auction’s coming to an end! Don’t forget to hit “refresh” often just in case others have bid on the item you want!”… but then I forgot I’d taken it. It’s so darn cute that I’m sharing it even though the auction has ended. (Don’t cry! There’ll be another (smaller) auction in February!)

Davy Crockett’s giving me the Eyes of Betrayal: “I thought we was a Tide family!” Well, we ain’t. We’re a Persil family… at least until I get a wild hair and decide to change it up. Then we might be a Tide family!


Archie would like you to admire that he, himself, is a fine figure of a mancat. Khal and Charlie and Jake and Newt and Dewey aren’t the only hunky mencat in this here domicile.

  1. Throwback Monday: Love the Myrtle Beach sunrise! Could really use that here in Central NY. Cold, windy, grey day. 🙁

    Oh, and the kittens are pretty great, too, but that should be understood. 🙂

  2. Ohhhhh!!! I’ve now spent over an hour ‘catching up’ on L&H – I had to forego my daily ritual of coffee, L&H… for like, forever! (no, it was actually a week and a half or so…. but dang, I missed it so!) I now know that calendars are available and will be submitting my yearly order! I also have a question, Robyn… have you / will you be doing Christmas cards this year? Did I miss it? I know you have your hands full with the largest litter of fosters EVAH! I just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it…. I’ve missed several things – everywhere – over the last month or so… GAH!

    • I will absolutely be doing holiday cards this year, and you haven’t missed a thing – I usually start taking names and addresses the day after Thanksgiving, but I MAY start a little early this year. Just need to get the auction craziness behind us first. 🙂

  3. I just have to say that I believe that Hush Puppy, Buffalo Bill, and Davy Crockett were piling onto Annie Oakley for that snuggle!

    And Archie, you are most definitely a FINE figure of a manly mancat!

  4. the picture you saved for the auction can also be used to describe every single monday morning back at work!

    calamity jane is sooo gorgeous. if i didn’t live in canada, i’d adopt her and call her cj! <3 <3 <#
