I bet many of you recognize THIS face!

Been slacking on taking photos – probably due to the dark and dreary winter and spring. He posed nicely on this recent bright sunshiney day. Norbie sends his appreciation for your orphan smuggling talents.

(That, of course, is Norbie – the little orphan who came to us as Khaleesi was in the midst of birthing her kittens five years ago. We slipped him in with her and though I’m not sure she was ever convinced he belonged to her, she also wasn’t NOT convinced, so she raised him as her own. You can read Khaleesi’s birthin’ story here – and yes, that IS a lot of blood in those pictures, possibly the most blood I’ve seen after a cat has given birth in my foster room. By comparison, if I didn’t know that Katia had given birth to her kittens in the crate, I wouldn’t have known because that was some CLEAN bedding.)

Thanks, Kirsten!


Three of Katia’s kittens, hanging out with Granny Kristi.

And all four of them! I wish Torvill had been looking at the camera, but y’know how kittens are.

“Is time to go home yet, lady?”
A little while longer, Deanzilla.

I wonder if I’ve mentioned that Katia adores her mama?

That is a floofy basket full o’ cute. (Katarina)

Kristi doesn’t care WHAT those floofy girls do, she is NOT leaving the pie plate!

Katarina on the scratcher, showing off her whiskers.

Snuggling with Deanzilla.

And Torvill!

“When does this thing leave, anyway? I’ve got a schedule to keep!” (Oksana)

Oh, that girl. (Katarina)

I love how it looks as though I’m forcing Deanzilla and Oksana to pose together. “Act like you like each other!”


Katarina and Deanzilla are off to their new home later this morning. I’m going to do my best to get a picture of the two of them together posing nicely rather than biting each other on the behind, but I can make no promises. I have more pictures of them to share, so you’ll be seeing them at least tomorrow, and possibly even on Monday too.

We will miss having them around here, but I know they’re going to be spoiled rotten in their new home, just like they deserve to be!
