Carmelita went to see what Mama was doing, and Mama took a break from eating to give Carmelita some love… and transferred some of her food to Carmelita’s face. I’m sure that’ll be a tasty snack for Isabella later.
I love watching kittens at the milk bar. (There are some seriously wiggly ears starting at about 38 seconds in.)
Milk bar mosh pit. They are some SERIOUSLY active little nursers. (That’s Alejandro at the beginning, wanting to play since his own belly was full.)
Look at those little explorers go!
A little Alejandro to start off your day.
Isabella does such a good job of keeping those kittens clean!
Carmelita gets a BOOP!
Throw back Thursday: back in 2015, we fostered Lucy (Lucille Ball), who gave birth on April 1st. Her kittens were named after various comedians and were loaded with personality, and my most-viewed video ever was this of Rickles and his jazz paws. That’s his brother Shecky kind of caught in the maelstrom of goofitude. (You can see their brother Red (formerly Skelton) and foster brother Georgie (formerly Carlin) on Instagram at @George_And_Red )
The other morning I asked Fred to hold each kitten up for me to take a picture. Alejandro could not be bothered to wake up and look at the camera, and then later on when I tried to hold him up with one hand and take his picture with the other, he gave me this one-ear-down look, which is when I gave up. That boy cracks me up.
I feel like the nipples really complete this picture. Thank you for your service, Isabella’s milk bar. (I have SnapChat and occasionally I mess around with the filters. I’ve never posted anything there, though.)
The milk bar is hoppin’ – and Diego is late.
Seriously, Carmelita trying to reach Isabella’s tail and then following her around – how CUTE is that girl?
