“Lady, this is where the Churu goes.”

Your wish is my command, Mimosa.

Bramble’s all “Is there Churu happening over here?”

Kudzu says “MAMA. Don’t Bogart the Churu!”

Mondo and Clover partake of the Churu.

While waiting for his next slurp, Kudzu has a thlurrrp.

He always looks like he’s having a religious experience when he’s Churu-ing.

And yes, Churu is one of the ways I get these monkeys to line up for a picture!

“Did someone say Churu?!” (Mondo)


Newt’s all “What YOU want, lady? Can’t a man take a nap without being harassed by the likes of you?”


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

The Sprouts are 11 weeks old today and this is what they look like now – less like kittens, more like small adults (their ears have gotten HUGE in the last week, especially Bramble.) You can see their weight progression chart here.

Line ’em up! They were all staring at the feather teaser, which was off to the side. Left to right: Clover, Mondo, Kudzu, Hollyhock, and Bramble.

BOOPing a very sleepy Clover, and Mondo (who came to see what was going on.)

Bramble has ridiculously huge ears (the better to ignore me with!)

Purr, purr, purrrrr. Wherein I get all the kittens to purr for me. (And I’m sure mama Mimosa would have purred too, but she was in the other room.)

Good night innernets. (Hollyhock, on the Fancy Sofa.)
