Linzer says “No, it’s okay, lady. My toes don’t quite fit on the mouse pad, and my feets will get cold, but that’s fine. You just go ahead and keep using your mouse to click around the innernets. I’ll be FINE.”
In late 2021, we fostered a litter of kittens named after elements. Two of them – Ruthy Ruthenium and Nikki Nickel – were adopted together. Ruthy is now Sylvie and Nikki is now Minnie – and this is what they look like now. Isn’t that a great shot? You know that if their dad, Joe, was actually trying to get them to pose like that, they never would have. Nice catch!
The downstairs was kind of a mess (we did packing & shipping for the Forgotten Felines online auction yesterday), and Cinnaspin and Linzer were checking it out, while Uncle Charlie wandered around. Linzer is interested in being friends with Uncle Charlie (you can hear her cute chirping sounds) and Uncle Charlie is just… like… “Whatever, kittens.”
I have been a total slacker about sharing video of our newest fosters, Lincoln and Lilly, who have been with us for about 2 1/2 weeks. They were trapped during a local TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) effort, and were too small to be neutered and returned. So they’re here with us as we attempt to turn them from scaredy-kittens to spoiled rotten kittens. It’s slow going, but there has been progress, and they have learned about feather teasers and Churu and the bowls of food and water that magically stay full at all times.
(It’s frustrating because they are SO DARN CUTE I just want to snatch them up and kiss them a million times, but I prefer to have a face that is not in shreds, so I am trying very hard to be patient.)
