In case you missed it on social media yesterday, we now have 12 eyeballs!

The funny thing is that yesterday morning I checked Uno’s eyes to see if they were close to opening, and there wasn’t even the slightest peek of eyeball. Then I went into the room a while later, and there she was, looking up at me. I guess she decided she was ready, and the eyes went ::PLINK::!

A thing I noticed yesterday about Whist is that she has a freckle on her right nostril!

(I would have cropped this closer, but I love that Canasta’s in the background keeping an eye on us. You can click on the pic to go to Flickr and see it in a larger size.)

I swore up and down that it must have just come in overnight, but when I looked back at her previous pictures, I can see that it’s been there, just very very faint. It’s starting to darken up now, which makes it more obvious.

Fizzbin’s got her eyes on me.

I swear they get cuter by the moment.

Rummy’s little pink nose and lips in the middle of the pile. SERIOUSLY.

You can practically sit and watch them grow.

Rummy considers her next move.

Such a sweet mama.

I’m not sure what part of this picture I like best: Pinochle’s foot propped on top of Canasta’s foot (lower middle-left of the picture), Fizzbin using Pinochle as a pillow while she daydreams, or all those tails.

Whist, thinkin’.

Canasta takes a break.

Back to the job.


Newt’s keeping an eye on the birds while keeping his behind warm (there’s a heated pad on that bed.)

2019: These kittens, SO judgmental.
2018: No entry.
2017: No entry.
2016: “Oh lord, where did all these children come from?”
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.
2010: No entry.
2009: No entry.
2008: “The chickens are here!” he said.
2007: No entry.
2006: No entry.

  1. Hi Robyn, there appears to be an issue with the link for 2020 – it shows 2019 instead. As does 2019,as it should, strangely enough (giggle)

  2. lol – Canasta keeping an eye on you and Whist: D@mmit! I just cleaned that one!

    Also, Happy 9th LnH Anniversary, Holly Waterfall!! I’ve tried to pin down my own start date but can’t figure it out – I have no idea what I did with my time before LnH.

  3. These babies are beautiful, precious, and perfect, and Canasta is aces at the mom game.

    Whist also appears to have a freckle or birthmark on her bottom lip, sweet baby.

  4. Are all kittens born with pink toe beans and noses and when do they start to change their color? Thank you 🙂 .

  5. Clearly they are little prodigies, because never in the history of kittens have eyes opened so quickly. Ne.ver.

    Lol, the look on Canasta’s face in the “Back to the job” photo.
