4-15-10 – Maura & the Bookworms.

Jump to comments

Someone asked yesterday if Maura was going to become a permanent resident. The short answer: no. The slightly longer answer: once she’s cleared by the vet and has had the last of her vaccinations, she’ll be going to the adoption center. The long answer: we have 11 cats, 2 dogs, and a large number of chickens. Fred is unemployed at the moment. We are not adding another mouth to feed to the family, are ya CRAZY? πŸ™‚

She’s a sweet girl, completely laid-back, and good with other cats (as far as we can tell from her reaction to Jake entering her room for the last two nights) – I have no doubt someone will fall in love with her.

Sweet Corbett.

Rhyme hugging my arm with his front paws while kicking my arm with his back legs, and Reacher looking on.

Corbett and Bolitar pulled that cat bed off the bottom shelf of the coffee table and cuddled up for a nap. In the background, Jake is curled up on the cat bed he pulled down from the table under the window. None of the cat beds stay where I put them, is what I’m saying.


Reacher. Isn’t it amazing how quickly they go from little round roly-poly babies to long and lanky kittens?

Corbett, Bolitar (in the back), Reacher, and Rhyme cuddle up for bedtime.

Almost five years old, and Tommy and Sugarbutt still snuggle up for a nap. I LOVE that!

Of course, they don’t fit quite as well in one cat bed as they used to…

Tommy and Sugarbutt, October 2005.


2009: I can only stand so much sad meowing from kittens, so I caved pretty quickly.
2008: McLovin would like you to know that he’s the man.
2007: No entry.
2006: No entry.

  1. Oh those are great pictures! They are all such cuties! And yeah, the Bookworms are really getting big – but they are still kitten-y cute!

    For the dog issue, you might want to try and contact some of the mom’s who both blog and do transport – they may know someone to contact in that area to help out. I know Khyra the dog’s mom does transport in PA (her blog is http://khyraskhorner.blogspot.com/) and she may know a way to contact someone who does the Maine area.

  2. I love Maura. I’ve got a couple of black cats of my own. I know a lot of people don’t want to adopt black cats, but I think they are so beautiful. I hope some people fall in love with Miss Maura. Beauty + a great personality!

  3. So sorry to hear about Fred. Will you have to cut back on fostering till things pick up? Hope not. Your kitten stories and pix just male my day. Also all the other guys.
    I’m not sure did you evere tell us Maura’s story. Where did she come from?

  4. Maura sounds like an absolute sweetheart…hope she gets adopted really quickly…sweet little girl!

    Tommy and Sugarbutt snuggling is just too cute…might be time for a bigger bed though πŸ˜‰ Nothing like two big snuggly kitties to bring a smile to my face πŸ™‚ Well, other than tiny little snuggly kittens…

  5. thanks for the post, yay, gizmo is on his way home. how would i post another message, thanks, j, beaubuddy and luckypups rescue, iaine

  6. Awwww I’ll have Maura if I could!

    And hooray for Gizmo and yes – Amy’s commentathon day today!!


    The Bookworms are just adorable as ever – great to see that they’re confident with the big cats around. And speaking of big cats – SugarButt and Tommy – I mean how sweet is that?!?!

    Anyway – I’m so in awe of your 11 cats, 2 dogs and chickens!! You are both wonderful amazing people!

    Take care

  7. …and here I thought that our 2 cats and 2 dogs was a menagerie. You put us to shame.

    I love the kitten names, and I feel so well-read that I recognize the source(s) for Bolitar, Reacher, and Rhyme. Apparently I need to seek out Corbett…
