Remember Caleb, from The Seven?

He’s all grown up!

His mom says: Thought you might like to see how beautiful John has become! He is a wonderfully intelligent cat. Every morning we play a hunting game. I hide kitty treats around the room and he enjoys the hunt! It is a challenge to find new places to hide the treats. I sit and enjoy my morning coffee while the mighty hunter brings home the kibble! Thanks again to his foster family!
Merry Christmas!

Doesn’t he look like he could be related to our Jake and Elwood?

My house was super quiet last night. I called the vet in the late afternoon to see if the Cookies were done with their surgeries and ready to come home. I waited on hold for a few minutes, then found out that they weren’t all done yet, and I’d have to wait closer to 6:00 to pick them up.

I really hate bringing them home when they’re still groggy from the surgery, because they stumble around and look so confused. I opted to leave them at the vet’s overnight, and I’ll be leaving in a few minutes to go pick them up. I expect they’ll be mostly recovered, and ready to run around like their butts are on fire!

When I dropped them off yesterday morning, I got confused and almost renamed the Cookies! We were weighing them and then putting collars on them with their names, and after she’d taken two of them off to the cage in the other room, I looked down at the two Meezer cookies left in the carrier, and I said “I have no idea who these two are. Who do we have collars left for?” She said “TimTam and Milano?” and I had to think for a LONG time before I realized that I’d told her Pink’s real name is Lorna Doone when OF COURSE Pink’s real name is Milano (Orange is Lorna Doone), so she had to go get Pink so we could rectify the situation.

Speaking of their weights, Hydrox weighed the most, at 3.5 pounds. The closest Meezer was Keebler, who weighed in at 2.7 pounds! There was another foster mom there dropping off her babies (hi Cydney!), and she couldn’t believe how heavy he was. He is going to be one huge cat!

Look at Orange looking at me, all “WHAT did you say about my mother?! I will kick your BUTT!”

Miz Poo’s all “FINE, let the BABY have the heated bed, I’ll just lay here in the PRETTY bed! And she can’t have it!”

If that look on her face doesn’t say “smug”, I don’t know what does.

“Hellooooooo, laydeez!”

I sure do love his gorgeous stripes!

Cookies, Cookies, everywhere!

I love it when one of them hooks her chin over the other one. They just look so content.

Spanky say, relax.


2008: I suppose I can live with being woken up at 4 in the morning, stumbling to the door, and opening it to let them out into the house.
2007: No entry.
2006: Last night, I had every kitten but Merry asleep in my lap
2005: No entry.

  1. That is so funny you forgot the names – you sound like me! I do that and have way fewer cats, so I am impressed you remember at all!

    Hydrox sounds like Barney is – big for his age. Barney is 7 month, 9 1/2 lbs, and he was like Hydrox at his age – big and heavy for how he looks – like really solid.

    All the kitties are so cute – and seriously, I thought that was Jake or Elwood up there in the picture of Caleb.

    Oh, and HI SPANKY!! I would LOVE to relax!

  2. Gosh the stripy Cookies look so much like my Banjo when he was a baby! So beautiful! I think I will post his baby picture on my blog and do a link to yours so I can compare ~ too cute!

  3. I’m sorry, i tried and i tried – i even looked it up in my oxford dictionary but i still don’t know – what’s a ‘meezer’?
    And it’s defintiely funny that you got the babies confused. 🙂
