Kitten #1 born at 6:06 am. #2 at 7:15. #3 at 7:42. #4 at 8:57. #5 at 10:08. #1 & 2 are black and white. #3 & 4 brown tabby and white. #5 black and white (I think). All healthy, wiggly. Canasta doing well. Edited to add: it’s 2 pm, and I think that we’re done at 5. 4:33 pm: Nope! I went off to take a nap, and #6 (brown tabby and white) was born while I was sleeping! Born at 2:38 pm.


Reminder! You’ve got one more day (okay, a day and a half…ish – until 7 pm Central Time tomorrow, to be exact) to enter to win this awesome crocheted throw!

Karen – Forgotten Felines of Huntsville supporter/volunteer/shipping pro – crocheted that throw. It measures 54″ x 48″, is reversible, and weighs just under 3 pounds.

It costs $5 per entry into the raffle (and you can enter as many times as you’d like!) You DO NOT have to be local to enter – if you’re not here in the Huntsville, Alabama area, we will ship the throw.

Check out the auction page or just send $5 per entry to forgottenfelineshsv (at) yahoo.com via the “sending to friends” option (to avoid fees) and note “THROW RAFFLE.” You can enter RIGHT NOW through Saturday at 7 PM (Central Time.) Saturday evening (7:15ish) we’ll draw a winner live here at Love & Hisses Central (will there be kittens by then? WHO KNOWS?).

All proceeds benefit the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville Sanctuary Cats Fund for cats in long-term care.


Have we got names for the kittens yet? I’ve thought of Cribbage, Casino, and Canfield so far, but I can’t think of other games with a C.

I’ve got a list of names around here somewhere that includes Cribbage – but at the very top of the list is Pinochle. That’s the name that made me DESPERATELY want to use this name theme, and I cannot wait to use that name for a kitten.


Apparently the largest litter of kittens ever was 19…

::Giving Canasta the side eye::

I looked for a picture of this cat all over the internet yesterday and couldn’t find a thing, probably because it was in 1970. I did find this information though: 19 kittens were born in one litter on August 7th, 1970. Four were stillborn. The surviving fifteen kittens consisted of 1 female & 14 males.

That’d be one way to get 15 kittens in the foster room again!


So glad I clicked on the 2008 entry. That story plus the Mr. Boogers pics for purposes of illustration? An Anderson CLASSIC!

I re-read that and cracked up!


Grumpy little face.

That leg.

She loves to hang out between those beds (and in those beds. And on the couch. She has many favorite places.)

Smug little face.


Dewey needs a kiss.
