In the picture: “Last snack time, Saturday morning”, notice that their elbows are giving them Angel Wings?
I did notice that, and I LOVE it!
What does Fred REALLY call Dustin?
Dustin’s Fred name is Willis. Why? I don’t know. I guess Dustin/Willis whispered it to Fred when they were bonding.
We totally need to hear the story of how Abby reacted to meeting Carla Mae.
Abby and Carla Mae the chicken stared at each other through the glass for about a minute and then I thought “Hey, I’ll open the door! Maybe Carla Mae will come inside!”, but when I moved it startled Abby, who ran off, and Carla Mae turned and stomped down the steps. Always ruining my excellent plans! Hmph.
2013 post is a classic! I think my favourites are the ones where the cats have conversations.
“Melfi went to her thinkin’ spot” cracked me up when I re-read that!
2007 “Too. Many. Cats.” *snort* love it!
Those old posts where I’m all “This is too many cats!” always make me roll my eyes. When we got Miz Poo, that gave us five cats, and we were all “OMG SO CRAZY.” Oh, please.
I mean, at this point I think “Five cats? How do you even know you HAVE cats with only five of them in the house?”
Speaking of Fred to the rescue, I’m quite curious about that little orange tabby pictured in the Facebook post on Love and Hisses, who Fred says was named “Lieu”. Do we get to know his story?
Lieu was one of the Rescuees back in 2010. Fred heard him howling in the culvert under the road (which is at the edge of our property) and we had quite a time convincing him to come out. If I recall correctly, Fred took a bucket of water to the other side of the road, dumped it so that the water would run toward the kitten, and the kitten ran toward me – and that was Lieu. You can read the post about that here.
By the way, I don’t think Lieu really belongs in that list of kittens who were tamed by Fred, since he was pretty much instantly friendly. Monday doesn’t, either!
The last of the Carolina kittens pictures!
That’s the last of them. No more Carolina kittens pics for you!
So he’ll come over to us to be petted, he’s climbed into Fred’s lap a few times. He’s a playful boy – he really likes Da Bird – and while he’s still skittish, he’s not nearly the most skittish kitten we’ve had. Time to stretch his boundaries!
Right now he’s got the run of the upstairs during the day. Of course, at first he hid, but after some coaxing, he climbed up into the cat bed at the end of Fred’s bed, and stayed there. Fred’s planning to experiment with leaving his bedroom door open tonight (since it isn’t a work night), and maybe he’ll get some snuggling. We’ll see!
