The calendars are here! The calendars are here!

Okay, the calendars aren’t HERE, but they are AVAILABLE FOR ORDER, over at Zazzle! I went just a teeny tiny bit nuts this year, and there are seven – I SAID SEVEN – calendars to choose from! One calendar that encompasses all the fosters we had in 2021, one for each litter (Moira Rose, Cardsharks, Dippers, Elements), one for just Canasta (I couldn’t help it – she was with us FOREVER before she birthed those babies and I got so many good pics of her!) and one permanent residents’ calendar. Click here to see them all!

PLEASE NOTE: Zazzle gives you many choices as far as what calendar size, what the date grids look like, and other good stuff. It defaults to medium-sized calendars with classic grids for the date section, but you can change that to what you’d prefer. (You can also change the number of months, though I have no idea what pictures they’ll put on the additional months, so I dunno. Just leave it at 12 months, is my suggestion.)⁠

There is a link in the sidebar, and I will remind you a few times per week through November and December. Given the way shipping is going, I would recommend you buy them sooner rather than later.


We were recently gifted this cool track toy and I finally got a chance to put it together. The kittens declared it FABULOUS.

They love it.

Especially the box! Carli’s all “This is an excellent box.”

Barry also approves.

“Where ya been hiding this, lady? This is cool!”

And to reiterate: the box? Also cool, according to Ozzy.


Jake is pretty sure it’s nap time.


Posted on social media (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr) yesterday.

Princess Carli has a suspicion.

All 6 kittens are in this picture, but not all of them wanted to be in my lap at the moment.

Good night innernets. (Sammy)

Sammy’s a bit of a wild child, if you hadn’t noticed.

Someone sent us a Halloween Goody Box from Chewy, and naturally I waited ’til Halloween was over before I opened it and shared it with the kittens, because that’s just how I roll. This pop-up tent is popular – they love to bat at the hanging toy, but they REALLY love to collapse the tent.

“What? Is bed time!” (Good night innernets.)

The Forgotten Felines of Huntsville online auction is taking place this week! There are a ton of very cool things up for bid, including this adorable Wizard of Oz cat ornaments by the very talented Foxes and Felines! New items will be added this afternoon, and then every morning through the week. Go get your bid on (it is only on Facebook, though). All proceeds benefit the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville spay/neuter fund.

“It’s too early, lady.” Sammy and Ruthy wanted to sleep in this morning, I guess.

Line ’em up! Left to right: Ozzy Osmium, Nikki Nickel, Barry Beryllium, Carli “Suspish” Calcium, Sammy Samarium & Ruthy Ruthenium.

A lap full o’ BOOPS. A BOOP for YOU and a BOOP for YOU and a BOOP for YOUUUU…

Good night innernets. (Ruthy)

2016: It’s a sleepy Raleigh pie.
2015: No entry.
2014: “I recommends you stop pointing that phone at me, lady. The ears don’t get much more annoyanced than this.”
2013: “Uhhhhh… nothin’. Just sitting here NOT making fun of the way you derpy-doo around on two feet.”
2012: Are you seeing the looniness in Magoo?
