This time last year we were fostering the Mainers, a slapped-together litter of 9 kittens who gave me my first experience with ringworm. Among those kittens were these two…


And Millinocket (Millie).

And this is what they look like today!

Millie is now Molly, and isn’t she gorgeous?

Dexter is still Dexter, and look at that sweet little face! (He was helping Sharon read, because that boy is a giver.)

Molly was helping her Dad clean his office. (She’s an excellent office assistant, head of the shredding department. There’s no paper she won’t shred!)

Dexter on the arm of the chair, big brother Angus on the back.

Isn’t that a GREAT room? Sharon says there are shelves all the way around and a fireplace; durable furniture, and the bookcases have glass doors, which protects the books from Molly the shredder. Smart thinking!

(Thanks, Sharon!)


In case you missed it on Saturday or in yesterday’s weekly roundup post, Jacques and Francois were adopted Saturday, joining big sister Sapphire and big brothers Slate and Simon. AND you can see them all on Instagram! (Edited to add, 9/1/2020: The Instagram page has since been removed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

When Jacques and Francois came back to us, I knew they’d get snapped up pretty quickly. It was a lot of fun having them here with us, seeing them with the little kittens and playing with Katriane. I took a ton of pictures of them – they’re so darn photogenic! – and so today’s post is pictures of the two of them with each other and with the kittens.

Such a pretty boy.

Yeah, yeah, I suppose you’re kiiinda good-looking too, Jacques.

“Lady, you so weird.”


Francois, looking amused.

A Jacques-topped donut is the way to go.

Hello, sunshine.

Khal was SO ready for those whippersnappers to go so he could have his track toy all to himself.

He is such a nut.

Josephine’s all “No, lady. You not ask him if he’s the baby. I just got him to sleep!”

“Not kidding here, lady.”

“You just HAD to wake him up, didn’t you?” (Gabrielle on the left, Josephine on the right)

Jacques and Henri, hanging out.

Josephine gets a snuggle.

Beauregard hanging out with his awesome BrotherCousinUncleFriend.


Nap time for Archie.
