Well, I wasn’t expecting THIS. Pablo came stumbling out of the crate and marched excitedly over to his mama. (He wandered around for 2 or 3 minutes before giving me the sad eyes. I put him back in the crate, and he snuggled up with his siblings.)
Those kittens were sound asleep and she stomped in, woke ’em up, and then left. (As you can tell, I was baffled. I guess no one ever told Isabella not to wake sleeping babies!)
Your morning mug o’ kitten: 14 ounces of Javier in a 20 ounce mug. (Check out the Zazzle store to buy your own. Mug, that is. Kitten not included.)
Look how casually Alejandro strolls out of that crate!
Your morning mug o’ kitten: Alejandro in a Dean Creates mug. (Dean doesn’t create kittens, but he makes some REALLY cool stuff.)
Doing their civic duty. (Upper left: Alejandro eyeballing his slacker siblings. Upper right: Diego is SO HAPPY that he got a chance to vote. Lower left: Carmelita is always so fashionable. Lower right: Alejandro would like you to know that voting is tiring business.)
In this video we have not ONE, not TWO, but THREE contenders for the title of Da BAYbee. We’ve got Alejandro, in my lap, who clearly wishes I’d hush. We’ve got Pablo in the crate, who’s all earnest and “By Jove, I believe I am!” (not sure why he’s suddenly British), and then Carmelita is all “EXCUSE ME, I AM ALSO DA BAYBEE.” Who’ll be the ultimate champion? Only time will tell!
Looks like they’re still getting their sea legs. Balancing is HARD!
Your morning mug o’ kitten: Pablo in a Love & Hisses jumbo mug featuring former foster Francois. (Which can be found over at the Zazzle store.)
Throw Back Thursday: in 2015 when we were fostering for Challenger’s House, we had three fosters named Peter, Paul and Mary. Mary was a sassy little thing, and LOVED to spit at me if she felt I wasn’t paying enough attention to her. I managed to catch it on video – her smug little face kills me.
Your morning mug o’ kitten: yes indeed, Diego DOES have himself a little bitty catitude. (He might be a bit less disgruntled if I could stop kissing him, but alas.) I would tell you where to find this mug, but I believe I picked it up a few years ago at TJ Maxx, and I am unable to find it online anywhere. The company that made it is called Spectrum Designz.
Giving Diego a helping hand to the milk bar. He’s so confuuused.
Javier and Diego wonder where everyone went.
Javier (pictured) and Carmelita are now wearing collars instead of dabs of fingernail polish. Let the random “THAT COLLAR IS TOO TIGHT YOU’LL STRANGLE THEMMMMMMM” comments begin. (I check collars twice a day and loosen them when need be. This is not my first time at the collaring-kittens rodeo.) I’m considering just collaring them all so they get used to wearing collars, but I’ll have to dig around in my box o’ collars and see what different colors I’ve got. (Those collars are basically just pieces of velcro – look on Amazon under “whelping collars” to find them.)
Carmelita is a little flirt.
