I posted an entry on Saturday, in case you missed it. Lots of pictures and THREE videos.

Their eyes are changing from that gorgeous dark blue. Noooo, too fast!

Leia smiles as she wonders “Is someone touching my tail?”

Charming seems determined to hang on to his dark blue eyes, at least for now.

Leapin’ Leia.

You know, she almost looks like a cartoon, with those white whiskers against her black fur. Also, excuse me while I go squeeze her.

Sharpening her little claws on my slipper while someone sniffs her.

“What doin’, lady?”


“::SNIK:: You better stop that, lady. I mess you UP.”

Charming and Aslan, getting their marching orders from Mama Kate.

A shot of Khaleesi from behind so you can see her pretty colors.


I do believe we’re getting very close. Khaleesi’s appetite has dropped dramatically, and she’s gotten SUPER friendly. I mean, she was plenty friendly before, but now she is especially so. I haven’t felt (or spotted) any belly movement, but the times I’ve had the chance to feel her belly, she’s been purring so hard that her entire body vibrates, so it’s kind of hard to feel anything but that.

Fred’s predicting tomorrow. We’ll see!

Tuning the Loons.

Such a loony boy.

  1. The eyes! Ours have started changing as well. I think only your namesake is still holding on to the baby blues. The blue eyes on Charming and Buttercup are so vivid. It’s a shame you don’t really see blue eyes on black cats; it’s so striking! Love Leia’s ‘is someone touching my tail’ photo. They are such cutey pies.

  2. Lordy, every picture is so cute, I could kiss and squeeze them all. Khaleesi, we are looking forward to meeting your little ones.
    Loony Jake, such lovely fur!!!

  3. And also Khaleesi’s belly when she’s standing up on her hind legs makes me giggle.

    • Ditto — she is sweetness personified! Best of luck, young lady. And Robyn, don’t you and Fred need a classic tabby beauty as a Perm? She and Tommy could have air-kneading playoffs.

      • Things will be so much easier if you simply don’t take Khaleesi to Petsmart; that way Fred won’t need to pick her up hours later. But seriously, I know she’ll find the perfect home. Kisses to adorable Jake — and to all your Temps and Perms!

        • Actually, Fred won’t know…he will think they both are just Alice. How perfect! The plan of the century!

  4. I’ve been wondering who Khaleesi’s big green eyes reminded me of, and I’ve just realised it’s my own cat Rebus! He also happens to have a swirl pattern on each of his sides, and since he’s ginger, I call him my “big swirly cinnamon bun” πŸ™‚

  5. Maybe it’s just the angle of the shot, but Khaleesi doesn’t look as big as Kate was. From what you said about her being extra friendly & close to delivering, I’m guessing 4 kittens on Tue the 23rd. I used to have 4 female Calitabbys like Khaleesi, but am down to 3 (one ran for the Bridge in Feb), and they are all super people cats, but can’t stand each other.
    Can’t wait to see what her kittens look like.

  6. Mondays should belong to Jake forever more. He makes Mondays better =)

    I love Charming in the last pic with that big fluffy white crest!

    p.s. Does Jake tolerate being picked up and snuggled? I’d snuggle the heck out of him!

    • Jake is the most laid-back cat in the house. If you wanted to dangle him by his toes over a tank of angry crocodiles, he’d totally let you do it!

  7. Awwww Charming is utterly adorable – yay for hanging on to those gorgoeus baby blues for a little longer!!

    Khaleesi is a beautiful mama! Take care

  8. I love Khaleesi’s colors and the swirls. Loving all the pictures and videos. THE BAYEES! So glad you are here to start my day out with love. Hugs.

  9. Charming is so beautiful with those blue, blue eyes! Don’t let them go away!

    Also – when did their ears move??? I missed it!

  10. Hi Robyn — I think it would be awesome if you had a “random post” button. πŸ™‚

  11. These awesome pictures have me speechless (well, working all weekend has probably contributed to my braincell depletion). Forgive my gibbering, but this sweetness is just what the world needs now (as the song goes…)

  12. Khaleesi’s back markings almost resemble a braid down her back. Very pretty.
    Those cute little babies getting so big! We need more tiny ones! They need to finish baking, I want to hear the ding of the timer on the next ones! Not that the little princess and princesses aren’t adorable! They are! But they grow way too fast!
    Jake!!! Those two pictures make him look more like a cartoon than a real kitty, lol, very loony! He needs a kiss right there on the top of that goofy head!

  13. Hee hee, I love The Enforcer! Ooh, I am so skeered! And Jake is still as loony as ever.
