I got GREAT news Saturday – after two and a half months, Melodie and Dodger were finally adopted. TOGETHER! I was starting to worry that no one was ever going to adopt those two (and when I saw them on Tuesday when I took Buster to be adopted, I was amazed at how big they’d gotten), so it’s like a Christmas miracle.

It sounds like adoptions have picked up a little, so hopefully a lot more cats will find forever homes soon. Fingers crossed!

The Brady Bunch are packing on the ounces. I weighed them mid-week last week, and found that Greg and Marcia have put on a pound each since the day we got them. The other kittens had put on a nice amount of weight (making up for the weight they lost when they weren’t feeling so hot) as well. Then on Saturday I had Fred re-weigh them all so we’d know the correct dose on the dewormer we were giving them, and it turned out that the only ones who weren’t over two pounds were Cindy and Bobby, who were only a few ounces below that weight.

So it looks like they’ll be ready for their spaying and neutering soon. I’ll weigh them mid-week to see where they are weight-wise, and either take them the end of this week or – more likely – next week.

They had their vaccination injections on Saturday. I held each of them while they were getting their shot, and not one of them stopped purring for a single second. They slept all day on Saturday and their injection sites were a little tender yesterday, but this morning they’re back to their wild little selves again.


Marcia watches the feather-on-a-stick toy and bides her time ’til it’s worth jumping for.


Lap o’ kittens.


Pack o’ kittens.


Vampire kitteh is feeling bitey.

Rhyme the smug monkey, proud of himself for claiming the kitchen cat platform. (Usually it’s Jake and Reacher up there.)


Pretty pretty pretty pretty Corbie.

We were running errands looking for something (I’m not being coy, I don’t remember what we were looking for), and we wandered into Burke’s Outlet. We ended up in the pet section (as we always do), and Fred was impressed that these huge dog/ cat beds were only $9.99. He wanted to get one, so I let him pick out which one he wanted to get (I’m so generous!). The first day we brought it home, none of the cats so much as glanced at it, and he kept fretting, “They hate it! They’re never going to use it!” The second day, Reacher gave it a try, and then Newt, and then Maxi, and it hasn’t been empty for a moment since. In that picture, Maxi’s giving it a try.


Kara’s all “You about done in there?”

  1. Thank you for all you do for so many foster kitties. My furbaby Calvin just crossed over the rainbow bridge this morning and I’m devastated. Some of your current fosters look so much like Calvin and his brother Hobbes (who passed away 5 years ago) and seeing their pictures is giving me some comfort. God bless you Robin (and Fred too!)

  2. Gigi, I am so sorry. I remember how it felt each time one of my beloved kitties crossed the bridge. There isn’t another kitty out there that can replace your lost one…but there are many out there than can help fill the void in your heart. I found that it hurts less when the love you have has somewhere to go. Perhaps opening your home and heart to another in need will lessen your pain. It did for me.

    Robyn, l-o-v-e the new bed!! Good job, Fred!

    YAY for Melodie and Dodger!!!

  3. My condolences as well, Gigi. When you’re ready, I’m sure there will be another kitteh out there for you. How about Corby? Rhyme? Marcia?

    Congrats to Melodie and Dodger for finding their homes. I can’t believe it took this long, but all’s well that ends well. As for the Bradys making weight, I’m astounded! Robyn, you’ve done such a good job getting them well and growing!

  4. Condolences, Gigi,
    just how far from Robyn are you, anyway..?

    Ha-ha, vampire kitty is “soo” scary with the teefs the wrong way round. Sooo, scary….and the new bed is excellent! so regal looking. Wish they looked that good and cost 9.99 at Kmart around the corner!
    Good work, Robyn and Fred.

    • I’m in NJ πŸ™ If I had my way, I’d take Greg and Peter Brady in a heartbeat! They remind me so much of my Calvin and Hobbes. Although, I could probably also be talked into taking a Bookworm or two πŸ˜‰ I’m sure there will come a day when I’m ready to adopt again and there will be the perfect kittens just waiting for a loving happy home.

      BTW – I got my card yesterday! I was filled with grump and sass and I LOVE IT!! Thank you again for brightening up my day!

  5. The Cat Pack is adorable. “When you’re a Cat, you’re a Cat all the way…”

    (Yeah, I can’t decide which bad joke to make.)

    I got my card! It is adorable and filled with magic and sunshine and sparkleballs, so really I can’t see how anyone wouldn’t want one. Thank you and Santa, Robin. πŸ™‚
