No babies for you!
Several people have pointed out her resemblance to former fosters, so for comparison issues, here we go. First, Mama:
And then Livia:
I think she bears the strongest resemblance to Livia, but I definitely see the Khaleesi and Dora in her, too. No wonder she looked so familiar to me when I first saw her!
(Speaking of Livia, she got herself a little brother last night, a Challenger’s House cat named Tulsa. Tulsa was adopted out at some point in the past few years, and then returned recently. He went to Petsmart last night, and was adopted last night! Yay, Tulsa!)
Look at that belly! Apparently she’s carrying more of them to the left than the right. I hope they distribute themselves more evenly, soon, because I can just imagine her tipping over like a boat with too many partiers on one side.
Challenger’s House is now accepting items for the silent auction, for this year’s Cat Tales! If you have quality items that you would like to donate for the silent auction, please contact Susan at the shelter (256-420-5995) or by email at challengershouse (at) mchsi.com
Acceptable items include art, gift baskets, antiques, collectibles, gift certificates, home/garden furnishings, etc.
Four years ago, I posted this series of pictures about Elwood, bless his heart.
Apparently that sort of dimness is genetic, because last week…
Bless his heart.
Speaking of Jake and Elwood (newer readers: Elwood was Jake’s brother who died in December 2012 from FIP), Sari asked in yesterday’s comments where she could find what I’d written about them when they first showed up. Which is when I realized that although I’d written about them elsewhere, I hadn’t posted about them here at Love & Hisses. Back in 2009 I didn’t mention the permanent residents very often (the thought being that this site was meant to be just about the fosters.)
Well, I’ve remedied that, and you can read here about how Jake and Elwood came to us. Also linked in that post is Fred’s theory on how exactly it happened (which he originally posted on the blog he had at the time, which is no longer in existence.)
2014: Mariette can’t believe you just said that.
2013: “MAMA I AM STARVING WHERE ARE YOUUUUUUUUU?!”
2012: For future reference (although I’m sure I’ll never remember this), it’s apparently at the 3 1/2 week mark when the kittens lose their fear and start seriously venturing forth from their safe place.
2011: No entry.
2010: I don’t know what the number is that determines crazy cat lady-hood, but I’ve got to say that two can’t possibly be the number. That’s hardly even cat PERSON level, right there.
2009: Beulah thinks this is the MOST FUN EVER, and she crawls up on the back of my leg and hangs on for the ride.
2008: No entry.
2007: I ain’t cleaning the frickin’ floors in this house ever again
2006: No entry.
2005: No entry.
