By the way, why on earth aren’t Torvill and Oksana adopted yet?? It’s breaking my heart!

I have no idea what’s taking their people so darned long to find them, but I wish they’d hurry it up already! In the meantime, don’t worry too much about them – they had a two-week break at Michelle’s house, so they haven’t been in a cage constantly since they left here. And the awesome volunteers who clean at Petsmart give them lots of attention and plenty of time to stretch their legs. But I do wish their people would hurry up!


Oh dear Lord, please keep me from killing my “kitten”…. need to vent I guess. We found the little stinker last year almost dead in a persons yard, rushed to vet care now I have a monster!!!!! HELP!!! So rambunctious and demanding. Which I really don’t mind except when she is not happy and cries -wants outside during rain storms

Does she have any other cats who’ll play with her? I think she either needs a friend, or you need to exhaust her by playing with her until she’s tired out.


Isn’t Charlotte back at Petsmart or Challengers House? Can you revive the “Former fosters available again” sidebar for her? We need to get that beautiful grey girl adopted again. We Carolina girls stick up for each other!

We have TWO returned fosters, and they’re both currently at Challenger’s House. Charlotte from the Carolina kittens litter, and Wellington from the ‘Maters litter. They’re both over there in the sidebar under “returned fosters,” and each have their own page – Charlotte here and Wellington here.

(And I hope you Carolinans are safe and away from that darn Florence!)


Khal is awesome, such a handsome man. How did they determine his age?

They looked at his teeth when he was being neutered and made an educated guess … I’m not sure how correct they are, but we’re going with it!


Otis’s markings are very similar to my Eddy’s: tabby ears, raccoon tail, and a few spots of useless tabby camouflage, but otherwise white. Anyone know if there is a name for this (like tuxie or torby)?

Sourpuss said: I had a black and white cat once who wasn’t exactly a tuxie and had about equal amounts of both colours.

As a kitten, I took him to a mixed breed cat show put on by a university that had one of the better vet programs here (Canada) and the judge told me he was called a “Parti-colored” cat. I’m not sure if that’s accurate or even a thing nowadays (this was a long time ago) but I’d be interested to know, too.

( Btw, he won 2nd place as best kitten and 1st place for best coat. )

Good question, and thanks, Sourpuss!


Sweet Miss Millie senses that something’s up.

As long as you’re comfy, Millie.

Arundel takes her nappin’ seriously.

Bethel takes a break from napping for a little snack.

“What? I’m hungry and this phone was right here!”

“If it’s not meant for snackin’, then it shouldn’t be made of yum!”

Sleepy Dexter.

“What doin’, weird lady?”

Bethel, giving Dexter a bath.

“Watchin’ you, lady.”

Bird watching with Arundel.

Napping with Bethel and Eliot.

The kittens are heading out of here later this morning, going to Petsmart. I am having a particularly hard time parting with this bunch (it’s so very much easier when they go straight from here to their new home!) and I’m hoping not to shed too many tears when I leave them. Adoptions have been pretty good lately and they’re a particularly awesome, cute, and snuggly bunch, so I am hopeful they’re adopted quickly. Fingers crossed!

(I have a few more pictures of them to share, so you’ll be seeing their faces again in Monday’s post.)


Archie’s favorite place to sleep – it’s in a central location (right next to Fred’s recliner and within glaring distance of the litter box), so he can be found snoozing there most evenings.


2017: Phoenix decided to redecorate. “This pad doesn’t go HERE, that’s CRAZY!”
2016: Comfort is relative, I guess.
2015: I know it’s super blurry, but I don’t care. I love this picture so much!
2014: No entry.
2013: Jon Snow’s face is killing me. “WHAT THE (BLEEP) IS THAT?!”
2012: King Magoo in the sun.
2011: “I have had enough of your picture-taking shenanigans, lady. PET ME.”
2010: Corby and Reacher are pretty sure that if they’re under the foliage, you can’t see them, and thus you can’t yell at them to get inside.
2009: Feeling smug about his conquering of the cat tower cubby.
2008: No entry.
2007: No entry.
2006: Maddy sadly contemplates the vast expanse of my thigh. How will she ever cross it and reach freedom?!
2005: I sure hope they get adopted together.
