Slapjack’s all “Tryin’ to sleep here, lady.”

Canasta is kind of fascinated by that scratcher – I think she’s a bit baffled by the fact that the kittens can go through the tunnel.

Uno’s hiding.

Coming through!

They’ve discovered the basket o’ toys.

I’ve mentioned that they love this scratcher, no?

I love Canasta in the background, keeping an eye on things.

Still watching.

Admiring Pinochle’s balancing act.


Belly up, kids!


Jake’s keeping an eye on things.

  1. Canasta is such a present mom. Loved seeing her try to play with them in a vid you posted yesterday. Have you had other moms like that?

    • Yeah, the younger moms tend to play with the babies as they get older. I’m looking forward to the kittens getting older and being able to actually play back with her. It’s gonna be wild!

  2. I have brand new foster kittens, born on 3/26 so they aren’t quite a week old. One is white with tabby patches like some of Canasta’s babies. It has a perfect letter C stenciled on its back.

  3. Canasta is such a sweet mama!

    Robyn, could you tell us again about the cat fence you have? What’s the brand? I’ve got a co-worker who is determined that their cat should go outdoors. Currently, they just have a wooden fence and the cat can climb it, so I’m trying to suggest a better solution! Thanks!

    • It’s the Purrfect Fence, and there’s a post about it here (if you scroll down to the bottom, there’s a picture that shows just how it works.)

  4. I love when kittens get the age that they become interesting to their mamas beyond the eat/sleep/poop cycle of very young kittenhood.
