Thank you all so much for your good thoughts about Kara and Frankie, we really appreciate it.


Sleepy bean.

Sleepy pile o’ cute.

Baff time for Alejandro.

“I’m watching you, kid. You might have eyes, but you don’t know what you’re looking at, and you are NOT wandering out of this crate.”

I always take pictures of Alejandro and Pablo when they’re next to each other, because I love seeing the size difference. You can kind of tell in this picture that Pablo is a bit lighter than Alejandro (though it isn’t always apparent, even in person).

Alejandro at the milk bar.

If that look doesn’t say “I blame you for this child’s nonsense, lady.” I don’t know what does.

Eyeball report. You’ve seen Javier’s double-eyeball extravaganza. Now also sporting eyeballs we have…

Alejandro’s slowly opening eyes. He looks very “Duuude…” here, doesn’t he?

Though you can’t tell from this picture, there are definite eyes peeking through for Diego.

Also Carmelita’s got a tiny bit of eyeball showing.

Pablo refuses to open his eyes because he knows there’s nothing good to see.

This girl is the sniffingest sniffer who ever sniffed. She’s always sniffing my slippers to see where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing.


It’s been raining a lot here lately (A LOT), and so Archie’s been spending a lot of time in this house in the back yard, fuming.


2019: He might be nearly twice her size, but she starts 99% of these tussles, and she’s usually the one who wins them, too.
2018: Team work!
2017: “I’m melllltingggg!”
2016: No entry.
2015: No entry.
2014: When a rooster crows in a confined space like a coop, it is REALLY FREAKIN’ LOUD.
2013: They look like they’re gargling.
2012: “I not love you, lady.”
2011: No entry.
2010: Do you remember Hoyt?
2009: No entry.
2008: More glaring.

  1. Lol, Archie’s fuming. Sounds, oooo, scary!

    Who’s the sleepy bean in the first photo, Pablo? Well, whoever that yummy dumpling is – he sure has a big honkin’ noggin, reminiscent of a certain Dragon, Mr. Puff Man.

  2. Ugh, Robyn. I didn’t get a chance to read yesterday’s post until today. I’m so, so sorry you and Fred are going through this with Kara and Frankie. It’s always a tough decision; but I’m inspired by another rescue/sanctuary whom I follow, who has come to the conclusion, it is best for them to say goodbye on a good day rather than a waiting for a bad day. The day is gonna come either way.

    I’ve lost two to renal failure and another to the same, for lack of a better word, “people” Leukemia. I know these are hard decisions you make. I’m confident you and Fred will do the absolute best for your clowder mates. I’m thinking happy thoughts for you right now.

  3. So sorry for you both. Recently lost our 18 year old. Cleo,the weather cat,let us know about impending storms by either hiding behind the door in the laundry room or in a covered litter box (depended on how severe the storm). She was a crazy calico that wandered out of the woods onto the patio with a wounded paw. Never regretted the decision to keep her. When the time come you will make the decision that is best for them.

  4. Love the pics of Isabella’s offspring & hope they provide some happiness while you & Frank are making decisions regarding your sweet, precious permanent residents! Always a sad, bittersweet decision,I know you’ll do what is best for them Selfish,you guys are not. Meanwhile,prayers for guidance & wishing you guys the very best.

  5. Just sending love and hugs for the humans, and forehead kisses for the felines. It is so tough to have to make this decision once, but for two at the same time, ugh! Hug hug hug.

  6. Wow, Emmy was eight years ago! Time flies. I still tear up a little at her going – away story when you talked to her about her safe new home where she only had to interact with people if she wanted to. You understood her so well.

  7. Your posts are one of my daily pleasures online. Thank you for sharing the good and the bad both.

  8. One of my favorite kitten foster pages on Facebook sells T-shirts and stickers reading, “Life happens. Kittens make it better.”

    In the midst of your concern over Kara and Frankie, may kittens make it better. ❤️
