ATTENTION: The Forgotten Felines of Huntsville Auction page is going to be holding a raffle for this gorgeous quilt!

You can start buying raffle tickets on March 1st, and ticket sales go for 1 week. After, we’ll draw a name and either make arrangements to meet up with the winner (if they’re local) or we will ship the quilt. Tickets are $5 each and you can buy as many as your little heart desires. All the money raised will go toward the fund to buy a bank of isolation kennels for cats or kittens who need to be isolated for health reasons. Since Forgotten Felines doesn’t have a shelter – all cats/kittens are in foster homes or at Petsmart – this will be incredibly helpful to keep everyone healthy. Ticket sales begin March 1st, and you can do that in person at Petsmart during adoption hours (cash or check), via Paypal, or by mailing in checks. Read more at the auction page here (and see more pictures of that gorgeous quilt!) here!


Los Mewchachos are 2 weeks old now (turned 2 weeks old yesterday), and this is what they look like now:

They’re to the point where you can kiiinda tell they’ll look like actual cats one day, right? Eyes open, ears slowwwwly moving upward. They’re (well, some of them) responding to my voice now, motoring around the crate, and showing interest in the world beyond. I expect crate escapees in the next week, though maybe they’ll stay contained for a bit longer (but I doubt it.)


Alejandro currently weighs 12.6 oz (birth weight: 5.1 oz)⁠
Javier is currently 11.7 oz (4.7)⁠
Diego is currently 11.4 oz (4.1)⁠
Pablo is currently 9.5 oz (3.8)⁠
Carmelita is currently 11.1 oz (4.8)

(Perhaps one day I’ll get around to adding a chart to their page, ya think? Not today!)



Alejandro (sitting up, with the attitudinous gaze) and Pablo (staring in befuddlement at his paw).

The boys. Left to right: Diego, Javier, Pablo and Alejandro. Where’s Carmelita, you ask? In my lap.

“Blep, I say.”

Giggling at her own silliness.

Not the best picture, but please admire the tiny patch of white on her belly and the larger patch on her lower belly.

“Keeping an eye on you, lady.”

But of course the largest kitten is going to be on top of the pile.

That’s a pile of cute, right there.

Checking in.


Well THOSE are some guilty faces. As mentioned, Jake is spending a lot of time hanging out near Khal. Khal puts up with it because he’s the sweetest.

  1. A breath of fresh air to see valiant Khal! And his trusty sidekick Jake’s cute lookin’, too. 🙂

  2. Lol, Pablo. That is one fascinating foot.

    Isabella has just the sweetest, most kissable face. It’s no wonder her kittens are perfectly delicious little dumplings…

  3. That “Halloooo” photo of Isabella stopped my heart! Squeeeeee! I would love to kiss that puss! What a great way to start my day!

  4. Robyn & Fred:
    My very belated condolences on the loss of both Sweet Kara and Dear Frankie in such short order! I got sidetracked with work and hadn’t checked in here since early last week and was so sad to read this news today. I will miss both of their furry little faces and don’t know how Shady Cove is going to function without The Sheriff to keep everyone in line. Thank you for giving these two such happy lives, especially Frankie with all his health issues. You two are the best – big hugs to you both!!!

  5. OMG, the 2013 entry! How time flies! I remember how I gasped at the first picture of beautiful Kate 🙂 The eyes, SOOOO golden! Have you heard from Kate’s people lately?

  6. I love these sweet,special kittens & their mama! All the moms & kits have been special,but these have a special place in my heart! Thank you for posting.
