We moved the ‘Maters and Kohle back to the foster room (from the guest bedroom where they were staying while I painted the trim and door in the foster room) last night, and they weren’t sure what to think. They sniffed around wildly for a while, and then decided it was okay, this strange room where (they seemed to think) they’d never been before. Silly boys.

Sungold, carrying a Kitty Boinks around (they’re like small mesh straws. The one he’s carrying around has been around for a while, so it’s shredded at both ends. Which seems to make them love it even more!)

I don’t know how exactly they’re doing it, but they love to flip that scratcher upside down. I set it right-side up every time I go in, and the next time I walk into the room, it’s upside down.

“What? Is FUN!”

I tied a toy to the bungee cord hanging from the closet door, and Dingwallace and Kohle thought it was AWESOME.

Mr. Stripey was impressed, too.

I posted this video a few months ago, but I ran across it over the weekend and it made me smile. Here’s Sungold back in August, making sure his brothers know that the toy he’s carrying around is HIS. (He’s a little more relaxed about sharing now that he’s a little older.)

Jake would like y’all to know that his loons continue to be in tune.

  1. Beautiful babies…

    OK. So, is it me just being blonde, or did you change that first photograph (upper left corner) on your banner? Did I just completely not notice before now?

    *hanging head in shame*

  2. I’m getting the “Corbie and the raccoon” video instead of Sungold.

    Henry used to constantly flip that scratcher too. I started leaving it upside-down to see what he would do. He flipped it back right-side-up.

    How crazy would it be if Jake’s loons were not in tune? I don’t think the world is ready for Jake’s untuned loons.

    • I’m going to blame it on YouTube. 🙂 The video should be the correct one now (and now I’m going to go add the direct YouTube link under the embedded link, now that I’ve thought of it!)

      I think you’re right, the world isn’t ready for Loonageddon.

  3. Dingwall Scotty is so gorgeous. Reminds me of ‘Blacky’ – named by my 8-y.o. son. Blacky has crossed the Bridge, but she was a gorgeous 15 lb. with markings very similar to Dingwall. I miss her so much. Just wish I was closer to you. 🙁

  4. Got our card yesterday. Laughed ourselves sick. I will not give away what is on it but sooooo funny. Brilliant photo.
    I was at our humane society last week. There seemed to be a lot of black kitties there. I wonder if it is a function of not adopting out black kitties at Halloween or if there is a boom in black kitties this year. I want a black kitty very much but 4 kitties would put us over the top, or so says the Scrooge I live with.

  5. I love the new color of the cats’ room! My mother’s bedroom in the old house used to be about that color. If I ever live where I can paint my rooms again, I hope my bedroom will be some shade of purple. It has always been my favorite color.
