Juuust a reminder that the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville online auction ends TOMORROW evening at 7 pm (Central time), sharp. Don’t miss out on the cool things available, including…
A banana pie! Go here to see everything up for bid (there’ll be more stuff added later this morning and tomorrow morning) and get your bid on. All proceeds benefit the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville (that’s the rescue I foster for) Sanctuary Cat Fund.
Unca Charlie using the kitten litter box for poops immediately made me think of Creed from The Office who used the ladies’ room for #2 (and he paid dearly lol) Have you ever done an Office-themed litter?
I had Phyllis, Creed and Dwight, back in 2009!
How SWEET is that!
Saw this post and thought of you…
It’s probably a good thing that the nearest Ikeas are in Memphis and Atlanta (both about 3 hours away), because if there was one in a location closer (say, Nashville), there would be TROUBLE. I’ve been in Ikea once in my life, and I loved it!
How do you pronounce M’Lynn? Is it may lynn? Or something else. Thanks.
It’s “muh-LYNN,” basically.
Did the little brass bed’s bedding get tore up or did you not want kittens hiding under there? And is that a roadblock I see around the couch to stop kittens from going under? So many catproofing things I’ve done myself!
I had started cleaning the foster room when I shot that video, so the bedding was downstairs waiting to go into the washer. And yes, that wood barrier is there to stop kittens from going under the couch. I don’t mind if they hide in places that are easy for me to get to (like under the brass bed), but I don’t want to have to dig them out from under the couch.
The researchers found this by taking videos. 🙂
Robyn has probably captured a thousand different expressions over the years.
Each expression more expressive than the one before!
Things are going well in the kitten room – there has been zero hissing or growling in the last day or so. Yesterday morning when I went in to feed everyone, I left the cage door open, and it went well, so I’m leaving the cage door open from now on. Clairee and Drum still return to the cage to use the litter box and to eat and drink, so I’ll leave the cage in there for the time being.
Judging by the interactions I’ve seen, I expect to see M’Lynn playing with Ouiser at some point soon. Shelby has started to show interest in the other kittens, but mostly she just follows them and stares at them. They’ve tried to engage her in play, but I think she’s not quite there yet. I don’t think it’ll be very long, though!
Say hi to the new additions to the foster room: buff and white tabby (girl) Ouiser, white and buff tabby girl (Clairee – with a lot more white than Ouiser, and a white nose), and their brother dark orange and white tabby Drum. They’re 7 weeks old and were stray turn-ins to our local animal control. Since Shelby needs age-appropriate playmates, I think they’ll fit the bill.
When I’m not in the room, they stay in cage – we’re just doing that for a couple of days so that they and M’Lynn & Shelby can get used to each other. M’Lynn has gone from hissing and growling to them, to (a day later) watching them with interest. (I will not be surprised to see her playing with them eventually.)
And Shelby? Well, Shelby lives on her own planet. I’m sure she’ll make friends with them soon enough, but for now she’s just kind of wandering around ever so slightly befuddled, all “Is something different? I feel like something’s different.”
It’s Thlurrrpsday, and please admire the way M’Lynn is diligently cleaning her foot whilst ignoring the new kittens, who are racing around the room (but are not in this picture; see todays’ earlier posts to see them.)
