The little ones (Picabo here) are learning to fling themselves off the little cat tree and assume that they’ll be fine (and to be fair, they land just fine!)

And jumping (Brian Boitano here) from the top of the scratcher to the little cat tree.

Newton. Fig Newton. (Aka Torvill)

Picabo and Debi take a snooze.

The ball that was hanging there got torn down pretty quickly, but that’s okay – they have a lot of fun batting at the cord.

That smile on Ohno’s face just makes me want to squoosh her.

Deanzilla and Torvill settle down for a nap on the bus.

Deanzilla’s all “Is time to go home yet?” One more day, little man!

Torvill’s eyes peeking up over the side of the space station cracks me UP.

Just a girl hanging out in a tree, licking the tree, as you do.


Kristi and Tessa, judging me.

6 little kittens all stuffed in the top of the little cat tree. Comfy!

Brian Boitano wanted to join the big cats on their field trip to my bedroom, and so I brought him along. He wasn’t sure WHAT to think, and stuck pretty close to the big cats.

He thought the big cat tree was pretty cool, for sure.

Katarina, Torvill, and Oksana on the top of the big cat tree.

The little ones are soooo close to figuring out how to get up there with Kristi, but haven’t quite gotten there yet.

Yesterday was QUITE exciting for all the cats in the house. We hired electricians to put ceiling fans in the foster room and in Fred’s bedroom, and swap out new ceiling fans for the old ones in the master bedroom and Fred’s office. Because the electricians would be going in and out of the foster room, I didn’t want to leave the kittens in there – the older four kittens are racing to get out the door every time it opens. So I put all 10 of the kittens in my bathroom for the 4 hours while the electricians were working. As you can imagine, 10 kittens can make a surprisingly big mess when they put their minds to it (but nothing that wasn’t easily cleaned up.)

When the fans were installed and the electricians gone, Fred gave me a hand moving all the kittens back to the foster room. Torvill caught sight of the ceiling fan (which was on) and tried to nope on out of the room. He got used to it fairly quickly, though, and by the end of the day none of the kittens were paying that ceiling fan any mind.


Video! Deanzilla, feelin’ floofy. Bonus: you get to hear me laughing like a goober.

Jake thinks the rock walls in the back yard are AWESOME.


2017: When they slide out like this, I say they’re reliving their birth experience and then I laugh and laugh because I amuse myself so.
