Princess Phoenix went home yesterday!

Hurray hurray!

Not only did Phoenix go home, but we have a prospective adopter coming to meet Stardust and Aurora on Friday, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. The more kitties who are adopted straight from here and don’t have to go to Petsmart at all, the happier I’ll be!


Speaking of Stardust and Aurora possibly being adopted together (fingers crossed!), here’s a picture of the two of them, side by side. They look VERY much alike, but there are definitely differences. Stardust has more of a golden color to her (though you can’t see it as clearly in this picture), Aurora’s eyes are more green than Stardust’s (I would call Stardust’s eyes gold-green), and Stardust’s face is more round, while Aurora’s is more angular. I will say that even though I know which is which, I often have to stop and look closely to determine which kitten I’m kissin’ – so whether they’re adopted from here or go to Petsmart, I’ll definitely put collars on them so everyone will able to tell who’s who.

I actually took this picture when Phoenix was still here, but she was off doing something more important, I guess.

Then Aurora wandered off.

And then Telstar was the last kitten snoozing.

Mercury keeping watch from the doorway.

Hubble from the side.

Telstar and Aurora.

Stardust from the side, with a sniff from Hubble.

Hubble, just hanging out with his tongue out. As you do.

Same tongue, different day.

Phoenix, doing the same. Must run in the family!


Frankie would probably spend all day every day – through the week – hanging out right outside Fred’s office door if we let him. (We don’t – when I close the screen door to let the kittens run around the upstairs, I bring Frankie downstairs with me. He doesn’t care to have kittens all up in his grill.)

Mouth-wise, Frankie is doing well. He’s currently on a steroid pills and Atopica both. We’re nearly at the 30-day mark when Fred will start weaning him off of the steroid in hopes that the Atopica by itself will keep him comfortable. If it doesn’t, then we’ll put him back on the steroid. Fingers crossed that the Atopica works by itself!


2015: No entry.
2014: No one trying to kill anyone here, nope. Move along.
2013: “Hi, hi! Hi weird people of the internet! Hi!”
2012: Polly loves to play sparkleball in the tub.
2011: It makes us both laugh and laugh.
2010: No entry.
2009: “You rang?”
2008: It’s hard to believe that volume of sound is coming from such a little thing!
2007: Snuggly brudders.
2006: I have a bunch of pictures of Maddy I haven’t cleared off my memory stick yet, so you’ll be seeing them for the next few days.
2005: “Take a picture Mom, quick! I can’t hold this pose for long!”

  1. I’m so happy Princess Phoenix is now in her forever home, no doubt being treated as royalty (as is her due)…and my fingers and toes are crossed that all the kittens and Mama will go straight from Crooked Acres to their families and wonderful homes!

  2. I have my fingers crossed that the prospective adopter will fall in love with Stardust and Aurora and take them to their forever home. I don’t know how anyone could resist those little sweethearts. Hope the others find their forever homes quickly too.

    As is frequently the case, I am typing this one handed as my little sweetheart Bella is snuggling with me as I type. Andre will be in soon to demand his morning love.

  3. Yay, so happy for Princess Phoenix.

    And how could the adopter(s) not want to take both Stardust and Aurora home together? I mean, two is better than one! Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the update on Frankie. Fingers crossed for him as well!

  4. What a lucky family to have been adopted by Princess Phoenix!

    So, have they been making good napping partners?

    Too bad Uncle Frankie isn’t down with kittens, because he does look like he’d make a cool uncle…
