Mama takes a break.

Back to the grind.

Another little bitty break. Yeah, her abdomen looks rough – she’s got a rash between her two hindmost nipples (I’m putting a dab of coconut oil on it, which is neither helping nor hurting – the rash certainly isn’t bothering her, so I’m keeping an eye on it but am not worried. And someone asked if I had shaved her belly – I didn’t, and the fur on the hindmost part of her abdomen seemed to be there one day and gone the next. It’s not actually completely bare – there’s a thin layer of fur there, it just doesn’t photograph well.)

Whist does a toddle.

What we have here is a rough life for sure.

Uno and the bright eyes.

Pinochle’s all “Watchin’ you, lady.”

Whist and Uno have a snuggle.

Sleepy little pile.

Slapjack has a sleepy.

Pinochle and Rummy are out cold.


Archie has a snooze. (Seriously, if I’d known how popular that pillow would be with the cats, I might’ve bought two. It’s probably good I didn’t know!)

  1. Look at them snoozing away… Again I wonder, as I do with all new little litters, if they smell more like flowers, or fresh Chex snack mix? Maybe banana bread baking…

  2. The 2018 headline entry makes me crack up “Kristi has officially made me wait the longest”. BAHAHA!

  3. Sweet, sweet babies. I love the stage when they begin to interact with the world.

  4. I’m already in love with little Uno! I wonder if these babies will inherit their mother’s lean and angular body shape? At least right now it looks like they have rounder bodies, but that might not mean anything.

    • I think it’s too early to tell yet – I’ll be interested to see what they’re like when they get older.
