Your dance dance dance comments reminded me of this video:
I love that video SO. VERY. MUCH!!
Yes, I’ve seen it, and I LOVE IT!
Those dancing shots are da bomb! What a talented troupe! What airs! What moves! What feats of feets!
What kind of camera do you use to get such phenomenal fast action shots?
Why, thank you! I use two cameras – the big one (that I get most of my pictures with) is a Sony SLT-A55V. The smaller camera (which I usually carry upstairs with me when I don’t expect to take pictures, but want to have a camera with me just in case) is a Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100. I get a lot of up-close pictures with that one, and when I’ve got very young kittens I tend to use the smaller camera because it’s easier to maneuver. We’ve always been a Sony family (our very first digital camera was a Sony, and it wrote to FLOPPY DISKS, and I am NOT even kidding you!), but I kind of lust after the Nikons and Canons. Maybe someday I’ll get to give ’em a try!
Love the sideways skittle and jumping over mama. When did they start parkour? Or is that inherent in all kittens?
I’m pretty sure it’s inherent in all kittens!
I love the Previously’s where you say you have too many cats! Six!
I know, right? Every time I declared that we were NOT adopted one cat or another, we always ended up adopting them. And every time I bemoaned our HUGE number of permanent residents and said we’d never add another permanent cat to that number, we had another one within a month or two. I keep that in mind now and try not to make definitive statements about NO MORE CATS so as not to tempt Fate!
How messed up is this:
That is so awesome!!!
Speaking of mama cats. I just read Kara’s story this week – along with a month of blog postings – I had no idea she had had a litter of beautiful kittens.
Kara was our very first mama kitty who gave birth here! In fact, there was no waiting and waiting for her to birth those kittens – she went ahead and had them about 24 hours after we brought her home, and our experience with her giving birth and raising those kittens was such a great one that I’ll always jump at the chance to take a pregnant cat.
Mister Stefan is one chill dude, he’s so awesome. Does he still play rough with the kittens?
He does tend to be a little rough, but I’ve noticed that after I make him stop roughhousing, the kitten who was screaming and yelling about being picked on almost always follows him out of the room. So I’m thinking that while it looks rough to me, the kittens actually like it!
Hey there! Speaking of a good deal on antler chews, I found a good website with great pricing and have purchased from them before. A good find for those of us that have the doggie buddies for our kitteh family members.I can ask my Chihuahua, Josie, “Where’s your kitty?!” and she goes running off looking for them. 🙂
Thanks for the link. I love a good deal!
I can’t remember if it was posted before, but what is your best guess why Stinkerbelle loves Tommy but hisses and smacks at the other cats?
All of the kittens in Stinkerbelle’s litter reacted immediately to Tommy the first time he entered their room; the instant they saw him, they ran over to him. I guessed that maybe their mother was black, but the woman who found the kittens emailed me and told me that she wasn’t, so I honestly don’t know. But she loved him the first second she saw him, and she has loved him ever since, so maybe they could tell at a glance how good-natured he is, and maybe he’s like a big, comforting teddy bear to her.
Does Fred still call Maxi “Mom Cullen”?
No, he sure doesn’t – in fact, I didn’t remember that he ever had until I read that post the other day! (By the way, Maxi and Newt are SO TINY in those pictures. I can’t believe we ever thought Newt was fully grown, because he so wasn’t!)
2012: And then Fred showed me the house on Google Earth, and I grabbed a screenshot and labelled everything, and… here you go!
2011: The Many Faces of Chuckles.
2010: It was horrifying, yet so fascinating that I couldn’t look away.
2009: Sometimes I call him “Brick Brickman” – that’s the name he’ll use when he grows up to be a news anchor.
2008: No entry.
2007: TOO MANY CATS UP IN THIS HOUSE.
2006: No entry.
2005: No entry.
