Here are the kittens in their 9-week portraits! They look like real mini cats now, don’t they?






The whole bunch. Left to right: Willie, Almanzo, Albert, Laura and Mary.

The proud parents.

All the kittens except Willie were playing in the tub yesterday, and Willie was NOT sure what was going on.

Laura’s all “Pa. Your foot is HEAVY.”

Yes, Charles jumped to the cat tree from there. It’s not as far as it looks.

They just love that ham-mick so very much.

At 9 weeks old, the boys all three weigh 2 pounds, 11 ounces. Mary’s right behind them at 2 pounds, 9 ounces. And Laura’s at the back of the pack at 2 pounds, 3 ounces. I keep asking them to stop growing, and they roll their eyes at me and keep getting bigger. NO FAIR.


Newt and Khal, hangin’ in the back yard.

  1. Question for you, Robyn, or your faithful followers: My 13 year old, 7 and 1/2 lb. cat has suddenly stopped eating wet food after doing so for the 8 years we have had her. She, of course, has her kibble which she loves, available at all times. I have tried various brands, flavors and textures to no avail. First, have you ever had this problem and second, is it necessary for health and nutrition for felines to incorporate both wet and dry food into their diets? I will add she is healthy with no known problems.

    • Has she been to the vet since she abruptly stopped eating the canned food? The fact that you can’t get her interested in any other canned food makes me wonder if there’s something going on with her physically. We’ve had cats stop eating canned food, but have been able to interest them in other canned food (so assumed that the issue with the original canned food was due to the company changing the recipe, but I suppose could have been boredom on the cat’s part too.) I would recommend a vet visit if she hasn’t been since she stopped eating canned food.

      While it’s ideal for cats to have wet food as part of (or their entire) diet, we’ve had cats who couldn’t be convinced to eat wet food in the past – and Fred just reminded me that Frankie is one of them – who have existed perfectly fine on kibble.

  2. Laura and Mary are sporting some pretty fly eyeliner. Do Ma and Pa approve of them getting into makeup already? I mean, they’d be what? Teenagers?

    So effing cute, this bunch…

    Lol, love the bunkbeds!
