Look at these sweet faces!

Those sweet faces belong to Patches (formerly known as Art Vandelay) and Periwinkle (formerly Bert Macklin), two of the Fakers from wayyy back in 2016. They were NOT born at Crooked Acres, but did come to us with their mama Regina Phalange when they were only three days old, so they were PRACTICALLY born there.


Patches.


Periwinkle.

They turned 2 earlier this month (which seems impossible, but I got out my calculator and it’s TRUE, 2018 is 2 years after 2016!), and Kristin said that they are extraordinarily sweet and patient boys. Awww.

(Thanks, Kristin!)

Little gray is very fond of flopping down atop the big kittens.


Isn’t it just such a rough life?


Little ornj. That dark spot on his nose is not permanent, I believe, but it makes it easier to tell the two of them apart, so I’m not rushing to clean it off.


All the babies.


Dean likes the orange ones. Oh, who am I kidding? Dean loves ’em all.


Katarina, also a fan of the littles.


The whole family.


Another shot of the whole family (those little pink toes in the middle of the picture kill me dead.)


Annnd one more shot from above.

Of note: one of the meezers has an eye starting to open. They were a week old as of yesterday, so I imagine we’ll be seeing more eyes peeking through pretty soon.

I took the kittens out of the crate yesterday morning so that I could change out the bedding, and as I was putting them back into the crate, one of the orange kittens got screamy, and Kristi ran toward me, growling. She does NOT like it when her babies are crying – and yet if Katia’s kittens are crying, she doesn’t pay attention at all. HMPH, GRANNY.

I took a look at the back ends of the kittens, and while I am 95% sure the orange kittens are boys, I really wasn’t able to tell on the others yet. All in good time!

Dewey has claimed this hammock scratcher as his very own. I don’t think I’ve seen any other cat in it.
