I feel very judged right now. (Yes, Kim does still LOVE that tunnel!)

Saul can’t believe folded all those clothes! (That’s Francesca peeking in from behind the basket.)

And Nacho can’t believe Saul folded all those clothes without her.

While they’re waiting for more clothes to fold, the kittens play slappy-paws through the holes in the basket.

Then Francesca wandered off to watch the birds.


Newt has a snooze.

Kim’s all “Excuse YOU, lady, I’m tryin’ to nap here!”

Teaching Nacho to give me 5. (I think she’s not quite as into the game as I am. But she sure is CUTE.)

Francesca hanging out with her mama in the Aldi house/tunnel.

Another favorite toy! The kittens (especially Saul) are fond of this bow toy (from CatLadyBox). I mean, it’s no green bean, but it’s a good second choice.

Nacho’s all “It’s Churu TIME, and we’re in the Churu PLACE, so you better MAKE WITH THE CHURU, LADY!”

Good night innernets. (Nacho)

  1. I was wondering if you noticed a timeline trend with kittens – at 1-2-3 age they do xyz. We recently pulled a (now) ten week old kitten from the strays we have been sheltering. Sumatra (her daddy is most likely Espresso, momma Wee Babe, two siblings – Breve and Kona) has seemed to hit the hiss and spit age along with the practice of a floof suit. I never noticed her doing these outside before now, so I was curious if maybe age had something to do with when she has started these.

    • I don’t think I could sit down and write a list of when they do what, but I think that the hiss-spit-floof stage usually starts a bit sooner than 10 weeks – I want to say 6 weeks or so? But it really all depends on the kitten – different kittens do things at different ages. Depending on how long you’ve had Sumatra inside, it could just be her coming to terms with her new environment and learning how to best utilize her defense responses. (PS: I love the names!)

  2. “Are you cheating on your green bean”?? I love this question so much, and laughed and laughed when I heard you say it on Instagram yesterday, Robyn, and now I have just revisited it here today and find it just as funny!

    Awww… Stinkerbelle and Tommy – 2007 entry. That girl had some THOUGHTS!! 🙂

    • I’m not going to lie, it cracked me up when I listened back and heard it (because apparently I never pay attention to what I’m saying)!
