You know how yesterday I said that Cindy and Bobby were “just under” two pounds, as reported by Fred, who’d gone upstairs to weigh them?

Last night when we were hanging out with the kittens before bed, I grabbed up Cindy (who’s the smallest) and went to weigh her to see how close she was to two pounds.

One pound, ten ounces. Now, I ask you – how is that “just under” two pounds? That’s “just over” a pound and a half, if you ask me!

I mean, not that it matters that much. At least she’s gaining weight – just not quite as quickly as I thought!


“Halllp. Meeeee.”


Okay.


Poking wee Cindy Brady so she’ll flail around and look adorable?


Probably not a good idea. But I can’t help it. She cracks me up!


“You poke ME, you’re gonna lose that finger, lady. You get me?”

Reacher was on the couch in the living room, and I was trying to get a good low-light picture of him (ie, I was messing around with the camera settings without a clue as to what I was doing, and then snapping pictures to see what would happen). I was kneeling in the hallway, and I guess there were cats gathering behind me, and it disturbed Reacher.


Doesn’t he look disturbed? I’m disturbed, too – I have no clue what settings I had the camera on.


Corbie, snoozing on my bed.


Corbie, in the blue basket in the kitchen. (That is not, I hasten to assure you, a bucket of chocolate buttercream icing behind him. It once held chocolate buttercream frosting, but when I purchased it at the flea market, it was empty. It currently holds all-purpose flour. I buy the big bag at Sam’s, and needed a big place to store it. That bucket is perfect.)

Miz Poo, in my bedroom window, in the sun. Sweet, sweet girl.

  1. Bucket of Chocolate…now flour!!!??? Likely story! LOL…

    Poking wee Cindy was a good idea! πŸ™‚

    Reacher does look disturbed, but boy is he PRETTY!!!

    Corbett needs a little kiss right on his forehead!

    Ms. Poo makes me think of my little (ahem…big) girl. Sweet angel!

  2. Love that shot of Miz Poo – I have such a soft spot for funny-faced torties. (And I mean “funny-faced” as a compliment – my kitty has a sweet, hilarious tortie face.)

    Reacher looks disturbed, sure, but still so very handsome!

  3. Is this a “kitten half pound” vs glass half full/half empty? Which one are you? Ha, love it! The weight just pushes the neuter/spay a little farther away, right?
    Okay, I’d love a card, will send details by e-mail.
    And the best Christmas present we’re “getting” this year: the outside/barn cat is moving into the house!!! We’ve left the 2-cat limit behind. But 3 is IT! We’ve got to get thru the worming and adjusting to the house stages but it will be fun. Young’un (Ellie) is going to have someone who will play back instead of growling at her, and I think that will work well. The Growler (Mabel) isn’t going to be thrilled except that she won’t get pestered as much…it will be interesting anyway. Miz Poo reminds me of Mabel, in fact.
    Thanks for brightening my day with your posts and photos.

    • That’s right, the lighter they are, the more time I get to keep ’em! πŸ™‚

      Congratulations to the outside/ barn cat! Yay! (Also, “The Growler” cracked me up!)

  4. Good to hear the Bradys will be around for a bit longer so you can ‘torture’ them with poking! And yes, Reacher looks quite stern. You should send it in to LOLcats!

  5. Awwwww poking wee Cindy Brady is so naughty!! Aww but she’s adorable!!! Look at her!! Here’s hoping lovely Cindy and Bobby eat up lots!!:-)

    Reacher and Corbie are handsome, handsome kitties!!! Mizz Poo is adorable – love that profile!! Take care
