I had a little more luck getting the five bob-tailed (and no-tailed) kittens to line up. Looks like Tater Tot isn’t the only poser from that litter.

Left to right: Tater Tot, Funnel Cake, Onion Ring, Hush Puppy and French Fry.

Funnel Cake embraces his snugglebug nature.

Just chillin’.

Calamity Jane found a new way to enjoy the Toastycat bed.

I don’t think it’s possible to take a bad picture of Tater Tot.

Davy Crockett keeps an eye on me.

As does Hush Puppy.

The two Bills (Wild and Buffalo) have a tussle.

Pretzel and Davy Crockett consider their next move.

In this picture, it looks like Archie has a tiny Charlie attached to his back.

Charlie has started exploring the back yard. He didn’t understand the cat doors and then suddenly he did. He tends to go out for short periods of time, and doesn’t stray far from whichever of his brothers are out there – usually Khal, Archie or Jake. I went to check on him yesterday afternoon and he was happily chasing Archie across the back yard (and Archie looked like he was enjoying it, shockingly enough.) Our concerns that he might still be small enough to fit through the fence slats are unfounded, I think – he already weighs 7 pounds, and is a larger framed cat than Kara was (she was our smallest cat, and always on the lookout for a way through the fence.) He actually spends much more time on the screened porch than outside.

(I imagine that might change if/when he catches his first chipmunk.)

  1. Thank you for the Funnel Cake photos! I appreciate it (seeing I was the one who complained you never posted any)! And I always appreciate seeing the kitties using the toastycat bed!

    • With 15 kittens, it’s hard to figure out who’s not getting shared enough, so I appreciate your mentioning it! 🙂

  2. Hush Puppy looks like he’s posing for his school class photo in the first picture of them all lined up.

    Archie looks slightly annoyed.

  3. I keep hearing the Chordettes singing, “Tater Tot Tater Tot, Oh Tater Tater Tater,
    Tater Tot Tater Tot, Oh Tater Tater Tater…”

  4. I love this blog and always look forward to seeing it, but these days I NEED THESE KITTENS (and permanent residents) to lower my blood pressure. And they really do! Thanks, babies, Permies and Robyn 🙂

  5. Maybe a silly question,Robyn….but there are so many sweet kittens( love them all!), but is there such a thing as TOO MANY kittens for socialization? There are so many,so active….what are your thoughts? I hadn’t thought of it before….

  6. So Charlie has been accepted by Jake, Archie, and Khal. What do Newt, Alice, & Dewey think of him? Does he bug them, or are his three amigos sufficient for that?
