Weekly Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr Roundup.

I didn’t realize when I took this picture of Athos in the black cat bowl (got it at Target!) that Charlie was back there in his ham-mick and Porthos was behind him. Cuties.

Line ’em up! (Porthos, Athos and Charlie-formerly-Aramis.)

D’Artagnan discovered the sink and found it FASCINATING.

I taped a couple of packing straps to the ceiling fan; the kittens found them interesting. (This is obviously before Rochefort & Constance went home yesterday.)

The ham-mick is the happenin’ place to be! (Charlie-formerly-Aramis & Porthos.)

Good night, innernets. (Permanent resident Newt, the old man of our cats (he’ll be 15 in a couple of months.) That position doesn’t look very comfortable, but he sleeps like that all the time.)

Welp. Didn’t take Charlie long to learn that skill from his big brother Archie, did it? Between the two of them, we will forever be safe from those dastardly dish towels.

We have an update on Clyde (formerly Clyde Bunny) and Jasmine (formerly Cutey Bunny)! Jodi says: Clyde and Jasmine are doing well! Clyde with his fluffy fur looks like he weighs more but Jasmine does- but just by a little. Their toy box has grown over the 2 months. Ha! Their favorite toy is a blue stick that has mouse on the end that crinkles and rattles.

After that they love any cardboard box. The other day we got a big, long box from chewy. We cut round circles in the side and top. They have so much fun diving in and popping out at each other. When it is nap time they still sleep together. If Clyde gets hot he goes to the master bath and sleeps in the sink. They have brought us a lot of joy.

My son has to give a full body hug to each one before he leaves for school. What is funny is they don’t mind the hug when he does it. But, my husband and I are not allowed to give body hugs. The dogs/cats mix is still In progress. When the cats have free roam of the house the dogs have to stay in the sun room behind a baby gate. The dogs act way too excited for my comfort level. I hope eventually they will just lie there when they see the cats walk by. Sharing some pics of their daily events. Most are when they are still. They move too fast for pictures of them in action.

(Thank you so much, Jodi!!!)

The sparkleball’s shedding and d’Artagnan carried that sparkle around on his face for about an hour before I pulled it off.

“What?” Porthos & Athos have guilty little faces.

d’Artagnan’s nap. ❤️

Charlie has a bath and Athos has a smug.

Permanent resident Archie sleeps well knowing that his apprentice Charlie is helping to keep the dishtowels in line. Good night, innernets.

D’Artagnan has discovered the bird feeder!

I saw Alexandra when I was at Michelle’s last week. She was just chillin’ and doing great! ❤️

“Well where’d THAT one come from?” Permanent Resident Newt always seems a little befuddled by the fosters.

“Whatcha doin’ out THERE, lady??” Athos keeps an eye on me.

Porthos is helping keep Charlie clean.

“He says there’s birds out there. I don’t know what birds are, but he’s real excited about them.”⁠

Just a little bed time snack. Good night innernets. 😻

New fosters, we have a few. 😻

I got these shots of Bunny last week. Doesn’t she look fabulous? (I just want to point out that she went OUT OF HER WAY to growl at my kittens, who were in their carriers and minding their own business.) She certainly is one floofy, fabulous girl.

YouTube link
Play time! (I’m not sure they ever really slow down.)

Porthos is a cute little punkinhead.

D’Artagnan and Athos are watching for birds.

Good night innernets. (Back: Candy Apple, Snowcone, Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane. Front: Buffalo Bill.)

Breakfast is served! (All 15 are present, but the house panthers kind of blend into one another at the plate on the right.)

GiddyUp! (Porthos)

Tater Tot likes that avocado toy – I suspect it’s because of the attached feathers (my avocados from Aldi never have feathers attached. What’s up with that?)

YouTube link
Checking to see how many names I can remember.

Heyyy! Howyadoin’, lady?!” I swear I could squoosh Porthos and d’Artagnan all day long.

YouTube link
Annie Oakley does not appreciate that kitten in the window. At ALL.

I’m not sure what Pretzel is watching, but it must be something good.

Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. (Porthos, who doesn’t look at all uneasy.)⁠

Good night innernets. (Annie Oakley & Calamity Jane.)⁠

French Fry really likes that scratcher. ⁠

Count d’Artagnan and his winged Porthos put up with my nonsense exceedingly well (yes, I’m sending the cape and the wings home with them when they go.)

YouTube link
Snowcone really likes that sparkleball!

Buffalo Bill would like to apply for the position of Da BAYBee, please.⁠

Skitterbugs. My favorite part is when Funnel Cake (orange) goes bouncing across the room like a mountain goat.

Oh dear. How adorable is Calamity Jane? SO ADORABLE.⁠

Good night innernets. (Permanent resident Charlie – formerly foster Aramis – atop his ham-mick. In the process of clearing out the foster room, I put Charlie’s ham-mick on the guest bed for like 10 seconds and he discovered it and loves it there, so I guess it’s going to be there forever now.)

Oh, these kittens. The BEST little posers. (Porthos & d’Artagnan)⁠

LEAP! (Annie Oakley, jumping up to join Wild Bill Hickok.)

Earl the Skwerl came to dine, and d’Artagnan found him FASCINATING.

Well, let’s see. We’ve definitely got Davy Crockett over there on the left (he’s a tuxie). That’s Onion Ring (orange collar) in the upper right. The mystery is who is that in the lower right? I don’t see a tail, so… it’s gotta be either French Fry or Hush Puppy. I’m fairly certain it’s French Fry because her eyes are greener, but I can’t swear to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

D’Artagnan the trash inspector. (And is it even a Love & Hisses video if Fred isn’t coughing, sneezing, or (in this case) loudly yawning in the background?)

“HI Unca Archie!” (Athos)
“Hey, kid.”

Porthos and d’Artagnan taking the all-important pre-bedtime nap.

Good night innernets! (Charlie-formerly-Aramis, Athos & d’Artagnan)
