Who is behind Jake being all up in his stuff?

That’s Reacher (which I know because I can see his silver-gray tabby legs and white feet). There’s nothing the Bookworms enjoy so much as sniffing butt. Well, except for Rhyme who appears to have an earwax fetish, judging by the way I woke up this morning.


The boys did well with their neutering yesterday. I picked them up in the evening, and they spent about half the drive home biting at the door to the carrier trying to get out, and the other half snoozing. When we got home, I let them out of the carrier in the foster room, they ate, and then they raced around like their tails were on fire.

It amazes me how the boys never seem to realize anything’s even been done to them. The girls tend to be a little groggy, but the boys? Nope. Let’s play! Let’s snuggle! Let’s eat!

Starsky is an excellent neckwarmer. (Behind us, that’s Buster on Fred’s desk.)

Jake’s so good with the babies.

And he knows it!

  1. One neck warmer for me, please!

    Jake has quite an unusual face! It is so sweet to see him take care of the little ones! 🙂

  2. Oh I’m glad to hear that there are other kitties out there with ear wax fetishes. My grumpy grey, Oscar, LOVES earwax. He’ll bite my hand to get ahold of a q-tip!

  3. oh those babies are so darling! I love Starsky being a neck-warmer.

    my cat didn’t seem to care that she had been spayed. she licked at her stitches and obviously knew something had happened, but she was bright-eyed and alert and moving around and eating right away, even though the vet warned us that she might be groggy for a while.

  4. Nichole, I got that at Jeffers, it’s called “A Room with a View.” On December 4th, as part of their “14 Days of Christmas” promotion, the first 300 customers who buy it (starting at 10 am central time) get it for half price plus shipping. I plan to get another one, because it’s so handy and adorable! 🙂

  5. I’ve always really loved Jake – he’s such a good boy, with such an adorable face.

    Starsky and Hutch are really particularly cute, aren’t they?

    And Newt is just beautiful.

  6. Awwww Starky makes the cutest neckwarmer!! I want one too! LOL!! Awwww! Glad to hear Starsky and Hutch’s neutering went well! Yay!!!

    I love that pic of beautiful Reacher licking a displeased Hutch and wonderful Jake with Starsky!

    Newt is lovely!! Take care

  8. I’m hoping to foster kittens again in my summer holiday (as a teacher, I get a nice long holiday to fill up with kittenage) and I keep sort of wistfully hoping that my younger cat Teddy will be Good With Kids the way Jake and Charlene are. I’m afraid she won’t be, though, any more than my older cat Pearl is!
