Does Regina have her mouth on the kitten in the pie plate? More pics please! I love it when mamas carry their babies…
She did have her mouth on the baby in the pie plate, but I didn’t get any other pictures. If I’ve made a kitten mad (or scared) enough to get a mama involved, I take it as a chastisement; I moved the kitten back into the crate and apologized to Regina!
They certainly did! (I LOVE that blog!)
OK I guess I’m an ignoramus. What is a cow kitten?
A mostly-white kitten with black or gray spots, like a cow.
I just saw the list of possible foster names, and I was totally amazed because a good number of them are names I have actually used for some of my previous fosters! I’ve had an Apple Jack, a Cocoa Puff, Cheddar, Sunkist, Popcorn, Pretzel, Nacho, Dorito, Penne, Ziti, and Tortellini. I think it would be really weird for me if you ended up naming a new foster one of these… I’d always be thinking about my previous foster!
I think that the cereal names and pasta names are popular ideas – I’ve seen many a Ziti and Penne. And cheese names for an orange litter is a popular idea, too.
For those of you who are interested, I finally compiled a list of all the names y’all have suggested (and names that Fred and I came up with) and put them together in a very long list, which you can see here.
So the Pie scratcher/bed arrived five minutes ago, and three minutes ago, Precious had curled up in it and claimed it as her own. Magic! (Although the next size up – if it existed – would suit her batter, her motto is ‘if I fits, I sits!)
One question – Do you have any idea what is in the little foil packet attached to the paper liner? That’s me being curious – whether it is silica, catnip oil or some treat, I am just going to trash it: clearly Precious doesn’t need it to to be attracted to the bed!
The description on the Amazon page says that it’s catnip, but I think it might actually be Silvervine. (Connie did a post recently about silvervine.)
I was wondering how old Mama Sheriff was. I love her little face which reminds me of my Sadie the Grumpy Ole Lady who is 17.
Sheriff Mama (Kara) will be 9 years old on April 1st! (You can see her page here.) That means she’s been with us for 8 years (she was guesstimated to be about a year old when we got her). Time sure does fly!
I have a question for the cat crew here. Anyone ever had a cat lose a claw? I think she damaged it, because she’s been limping for a couple of days, but yesterday I noticed it had come out entirely. I think it hurts, but it’s clean and shows no signs of infection. Should I take her to the vet?
I haven’t had a cat lose a claw, but I’d get her to the vet just to be safe.
I’d really love to see those pictures of the flying cats. I forget who it was but I think one was orange? Thanks!
There are some flying kitten pictures here!
2015: “Bring it over HERE, lady!”
2014: I love how Ferdinand is first on the scene, both times, to investigate what’s going on.
2013: “Stop harassing me. I did some mathematic equations, realized exactly how those babies are planning to exit their current domicile, and I decided I’m NEVER going to give birth. Go away.”
2012: I think it’s safe to say that Emmy is pretty much over one Fred Anderson.
2011: That cat tree is leaning rather dangerously under the weight of Elwood (aka “Ellie Belly”), but he doesn’t care.
