I forgot to mention that on Sunday the kittens had visitors (not potential adopters, just visitors), and the first kitten to approach them was…


They reported that Jay wasn’t far behind. Myrtle came around eventually, but they had to actually push it with Zelda and pick her up, and she was okay with it, though I get the impression it wasn’t her favorite thing. It’s good to know how the kittens react to strangers, since most of the time it’s just the two of us interacting with them.

Jay’s got his green bean.

Myrtle in the scratcher hammock.

Nick sure does love that scratcher tunnel.

Daisy claimed my slippers, and Jay claimed Daisy’s tail.

Sleepy Zelda.

Myrtle really likes that packing strap (all the kittens do.)

Family portrait, kinda.

Daisy’s got the green bean, and Myrtle is eyeing that tail.

Myrtle’s wondering how she gets into THAT room where all the toys look so much better.

Jay picked a fight with Mama and then…

Had to go hide under the bed when Mama had had enough!


Plover loves her bottle (she is air kneading, which is something I’m having a hard time capturing on video but is incredibly cute.)

This picture is from a couple of days ago – her eyes are open all the way now – but I had to show off her bedhead.

There goes Starling, savoring her bottle again.

Rufous is all “Oh. Hallo!”

Wren is just SO ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN’ ADORABLE, I just wanna squoosh her.

Sometimes I put the kittens on this blanket on the floor of the kitchen after they’ve been fed. Rufous is interested in exploring a little, but Plover (left) and Starling are still a little too young to be interested in the world beyond their nest and the bottle, so they tend to just gravitate toward Rufous or Wren and try to pile up for a snuggle.


Jake’s keepin’ warm in the pink cube on the back porch.

If you’ve been biding your time waiting for Daisy to be available adoption, the time is now! Email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to inquire!⁠

Daisy (DOB 1/31/2020) is a black and white polydactyl (extra toes on all 4 paws!) tuxie who was living as part of a colony in Huntsville for at least two years before her feeders brought her to Forgotten Felines of Huntsville. She was scheduled for her spay surgery, but it was determined that she was pregnant, so she went into foster. She had four kittens on March 18th, and has since been a wonderful mother to them. She’s ready to find her own home now, where she can be the baby.⁠

Daisy is a super sweet, friendly girl who will always greet you at the door. She loves to be petted, and really loves to snooze while pressed up against you. (She has not proven to be a lap cat yet, but once her mothering duties are over, she very well might turn out to be one.) Now that her kittens are older, she has finally started to show her playful side. She is VERY fond of catnip toys, likes to bunny-kick stuffed toys, and really likes lightweight toys (like ping pong balls and toy mice) that she can bat around. When she’s not playing, she likes to curl up in a patch of sunlight near a window, and watch the birds flit around. She has been spayed, microchipped, and is up to date on her vaccinations.⁠

Please EMAIL Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to inquire. We are located near Huntsville, Alabama. Out of area adoptions ARE allowed, but adopters MUST come here to complete the adoption.

Plover, Rufous and Starling are waiting for their breakfast. (Wren was in the process of having her breakfast, thus is not in this picture.)

Sometimes Jay is just a little too sassy for his own good.

Jay’s all “I sees you!”

The Catsbys have met the feather teaser, and they are BIG fans.

Myrtle was having the best time flinging this toy around, and I’m just pleased I managed to get this picture of her in action.

Good night innernets. (Wren)
