This is the little bathroom off the computer room. Every single kitten adores hanging out in there (in part, I suspect, because it’s very warm in there most of the time), and Veruca and Violet especially love to go in there, push the trash basket over, and play in and on it. Needless to say, I don’t use it for trash.

“Lady, it has not escaped my notice that when you’re around, chickens fall from the sky. I’ve got my eye on you.”

One thing about the Wonkas, I don’t think I’ve mentioned, is that they all have very long tails to go along with their very big ears. I should measure their overall length and then the length of their tails and then measure all the other cats in the house the same way so I can back up my long-tail assertion with cold, hard facts.

Tell me she can’t flap those things and fly away.
“What big ears you have, Veruca!”
“The better to ignore you with, my dear.”

Gussy McFlooferton, at your service.

Is that not the smuggest little face? Like “I KNOW Miz Poo hates kittens, ask me if I care.”

Sheriff Mama (aka “Kara”) keeps an eye out in case someone needs a butt-kicking.

  1. Their ears are huge! Pimp’s ears and paws were HUGE when he was a kitten. Like lion paws. It took him forever to grow into them, but when he did… watch out! He is a big boy. 🙂

    Please send me Gus for Christmas. Thanks. 😉

  2. I love big ears on cats – Barney has them and I keep hoping that he doesn’t grow out of them. Hopefully the Wonka’s won’t either. And seriously, Gus has the most crazy ear floof I have ever seen!

    And I love that last picture – that is definitely a “yeah, you’d better watch it” pose!

  3. Oh those Wonka-ears are just adorable…each and every one of them 🙂

    I love the smugness of the little Cookie snuggling up to Miz Poo! Too funny! Hope “Sheriff Mama” didn’t end up having to come in and kick some kitten butt :)_

  4. You know how old men have an excess of ear hair? If Gus has so much ear hair now, can you imagine what he’s going to look like when he’s an old man?

  5. Hi Robyn!! Have missed you, the Wonkas and the Cookies! Trying desperately to catch up with all my blog friends (yet again!) so just a couple of quick ones:

    First… the ears are huge!! (Gotta say, though, nobody beats Gus when it comes tail! LOL!) Second, just about died over the chicken falling from the sky! Gonna pass that one around at work!
