Oh, my heart.

“I sees you, lady, and not impressed.”

Pileup. That little gray one really likes those tuxie girls.

Katarina and little ornj, back to back.

Such a grumpy little floofmuffin first thing in the morning.

That BELLY. Clearly the big kittens aren’t emptying out the milk bar.

The whole family.

Teeny tongue.

All the kittens. Apparently the big kittens are babysitting while the mamas are off having fun (or sleeping.)

And then Katarina and Dean went looking for Katia…

…and found her! Katia’s all “I need a better hiding place.”

I wondered yesterday whether Katia’s kittens would migrate toward the other crate with her or return to “home base,” and it turns out that home base is where it’s at. All the big kittens occasionally wandered over to Katia’s crate and bellied up to the milk bar, but then eventually returned to the main crate. There were several times overnight where both mothers and all the kittens were in the crate. One of these days that thing is going to pop open and kittens will go flying everywhere.

Also, someone peed a kitten-sized pee in one of the little litter boxes. I don’t know for sure who it was, but I suspect Dean.


Jake loves him some Khal Drogo, for sure. Possibly because Khal will lick him on the head and head-butt him, and most of the other cats are easily irritated by Jake. Jake just wants looove from his brothers and sisters.

Such serious faces.


2017: “Or not. Ha ha. Suckerrr.”
2016: “Come HERE and give Mama a hug!”
2015: Are we sensing a theme here?
2014: Gracey and Kaleb.
2013: Eyeball check!
2012: Then she hits the ground and is like “Wait. I’m a CHICKEN. I can’t FLY. Hmph.”
2011: “There are no other cats. There is only Maggie.”
2010: “That’s right, I done it, copper. I done it, and I’d do it again. I was loopy on catnip, no judge in the world is going to convict me. They’ll send me to rehab, I’ll come out clean and UNREPENTANT. So get out those cuffs and slap ‘em on, I AIN’T SCARED.”
2009: (I like to think that maybe someone who lives down the road was sitting in front of their TV and was struck with the sudden urge to grab the camera and go upstairs, and that they said “But I don’t HAVE an upstairs!”)

  1. Jake and Khal Drogo = <3

    I just keep thinking how wwwaaarrrmm and soft that pile 'o kittens is!

  2. Big kittens babysitting…Not fair, they’ve been around what? 4 weeks? and already they’ve managed to land the best.job.ever.

  3. Dean?? with that “Oh my god! Stuck with babysitting duties again?!?!?” expression cracks me up. Love the astounding blue eyes.

  4. They are so cute it hurts. I wish I could adopt the grey one. (Don’t tell Simon I said that). I lost my beautiful grey boy Rocky unexpectedly from cancer way too soon (8yrs). A tuxie is another one I’d like. My first cat was a tuxie, back when I was 5. I’ll just have to watch. I can’t afford more than one and Simon is one plus. They are all too easy to love and too hard to loose. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

  5. Jake and Khal!!! 🙂

    Robyn, just so you know, sometimes I just can’t face waking up, BUT then I remember — ooh, kitten update!! And that gets me up and ready to face the world. Thank goodness for your blog!! 😀

  6. I love the pictures of Jake and Khal. I’ve always been kind of attached to Jake, so I’m glad he’s got a new friend. And Khal! Such a failure at being feral!

  7. This is one litter you do not have to provide with warm rice-filled socks. There are enough warm bodies to lounge on for everyone! 😀

  8. Maybe someone else has already said this, but I just realized that the little ones are the half-uncles and aunts of the jumbo kittens! There’s something extra-adorable about that.

  9. Eyeballs already? Has it been that long? Tiny baby kittens grow so fast!

    And I don’t blame Jake one bit for wanting to hang out with Khal Drogo. If Khal’s furs are anything like as soft and floofy as my Zelda’s, which they strongly resemble aside from color, Jake would be silly not to!

  10. I recently started watch Game of Thrones (yeah, I know, welcome to the 21st Century!) and I was rather impressed with myself for being able to remember so many names, especially considering how unusual they are. NOW I remember why!!! I loved your GOT kittens!! So next time I decide to start watching something that’s been around for a while, I’ll be sure to check here first and see if there are any namesakes that can help with my memory! Love your kitties!!!
