In case you missed it, the kittens have been named!
The tiny calico girl: Myrtle.
The house panther boy: Nick.
The tiny tortie girl: Zelda. (Not a character in the book, but F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, so close enough. Michelle currently has a cat named Jordan, so we couldn’t use that.)
The tuxie: Jay.
They like to do a move I call “the mind meld” where they press their heads together and just stay like that for 30 seconds or so. Jake does it with most of the permanent residents, but Khal only does it with Jake. Awww.
People of the innernets, say hello to the Crate Catsbys (arranged here in order of their birth.) Calico girl is Myrtle, house panther is Nick, the tortie is Zelda (not a character in the book, but author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, and a novelist herself), and the tuxie is Jay. They are just the CUTEST.
Life at the milk bar: it’s the happening place to be!
Lincoln and Lilly were adopted and went home to Colorado Saturday. Here’s a montage of their stay with us, from hello to adoption. They went from very scared kittens hiding behind the toilet to confident, playful kittens who learned about the good life: Churu, treats, and feather teasers. ❤
Joanie’s favorite toy is Marsali’s tail. I mean, it IS like 7 miles long, I can’t blame Joanie for being enthralled!
