If I could ask an indelicate question….are Gilda’s buttons nipples too?

They are! It’s kind of amazing how perfectly placed they are, isn’t it?


Re Gilda’s belleh… In addition to buttons I also see two kitties facing each other like one of those classic vase/face drawings.

It took me a minute, but I totally see it! How cool is that? SO cool!


Maybe some pics are a few days older, but Louis sure looks like his eyes are staying bright blue while everyone else is changing.

His eyes are starting to change, but from a distance they still look completely blue. I wish they’d stay blue!


Aww is that Pepsi in the first picture? I want that feisty girl to find her forever family!!

I think it is – good eye, Amy!


An outtake from yesterday’s tummy pictures. That’s Skelton, and he looks for all the world like he’s asking me why I’m torturing him so – but he was actually in the middle of a yawn.

That’s smilin’ Skelton in the middle, with Roseanne on the left and Shecky on the right. I think it’s interesting how Skelton’s eyes are taking longer to change than Roseanne and Shecky’s did.

Louis wants to know what I want.

Tusslin’ bros Belushi and Louis.

“Hallo innernets, lookit my toebeans!”

Roseanne’s having Deep Thoughts.

Rickles is grumpylicious.

Roseanne and Skelton, tusslin’ on the little cat tree.

Louis has to really work to make it up to the platform.

Skelton snoopervises Lucy’s water consumption. A mama kitty’s got to keep hydrated!

Lucy heard Fred in the hall, and waited expectantly for him to come into the room. I think it’s a federal law that all mama kitties must adore Fred.

Keepin’ Skelton clean.

I dropped Lucy off for her spay yesterday, and at the same time took the kittens for their combo and fecal tests. The combo test (which tests for FIV and Feline Leukemia) was negative. Lucy was tested the day I got her, and she was negative, so no surprise that her kittens were, too. What did surprise me is that the kittens’ fecal showed them negative for any parasites. I’m pretty sure that’s the very first time that’s ever happened, usually they have giardia or coccidia or some sort of worms (and very often they have coccidia AND giardia AND worms). But not these guys, and I am NOT complaining!

The kittens had actually never been in a car before, and they handled it well. I picked them up after their tests and brought them home with me, then picked Lucy up late yesterday afternoon. She’s spayed, she’s had her rabies shot, she’s been id chipped, and she’s had her first vaccination. The clock is ticking for that girl – another three weeks, she’ll get her last vaccination and be ready to go. She was still a little dopey when I got her home last night, so I put her in the bathroom upstairs (where there’s already a litter box and food and water bowl set up), and she was happy to just zone out in there for the night. I’m hoping to keep her out of the kitten room for a couple of days, but we’ll see how she feels about that.


Here’s a mystery for you to ponder.

Rickles is all “WHO IS THAT? Oh, it’s Belushi. He looked different.” But…

“Did someone call me?” asks Belushi, coming out from behind the litter box.

This is Carlin.

And yes, I’m going to make you wait ’til Monday to hear his story. (And no, they didn’t find him incubating inside Lucy when they did the spay surgery!)
