Stardust and Phoenix – look at those sweet sisters! I love that they have the same color eyes. How did I never notice that until now?

And isn’t that a cool cat tree?

(Thanks, Debra!)


Picabo and Debi (and Kristi, who’s all “Is it time to wean yet?”)

Ohno the little poser.

Torvill the little poser.

They certainly like to pose on and under that ess!

Posin’ Picabo. It’s a posing kinda day.

Scott. His sweet little face just kills me dead.

Kitten pie. (Oksana, Deanzilla (top) and Torvill.

Deanzilla gets his ::thlurrrp:: on.

Debi would like y’all to know that she found her way to the top of the little kitten tree, and it is awesome.

Have I mentioned that they really love that mouse house?

A LOT. In fact, I walked in Saturday morning to find the 4 big kittens snoozing in the middle of the room and the 6 little ones nowhere to be found. Turned out that they were all sound asleep in the mouse house. Too bad I didn’t have my phone on me! Rookie mistake.

They like sleeping on top of it, too, as you can see. It’s multi-functional!

Uh… sorry to bother you. Carry on!

“Lady, you is just weird.” (Katarina)

Katia’s kittens are now 8 weeks old (as of yesterday) and Kristi’s are 5 weeks old (as of this morning), and the cute in that room is off the chart. The older kittens are starting to get reeeeal interested in what’s on the other side of that door, so I’m going to start taking them into my room for a field trip for a few hours and see how it goes.


He’s a jerk (to the other cats) and has a hair-trigger temper and is easily stressed out (which he takes out on the other cats), but I really like that Archie an awful lot.

  1. Your description of Archie reads like a movie poster for a cop/detective movie (except maybe he’d be taking out his stress on perps). I like Archie an awful lot too.

    And those kittens.

  2. Oh wow. Ohno IS a lynx point! It’s almost a shame that this will be Kristi’s last litter, because man oh man does she make some gorgeous kittens.

    (Yes, yes, I know. Please spare me the preachy lecture about excess kittens and health and all of the other reasons to do it. In the end, it’s for the best that she be spayed. She still makes gorgeous kittens.)

  3. Wait – I thought there was a 3-week difference in the kitten ages?? Are Kristi’s maybe 5 weeks old, not 6 weeks?

    However old they are, they are all adorable!

    • Costco, something like 60 dollars, much cheaper than anything else I found that I liked!

  4. I am so happy that another group of kittens is enjoying the mouse house. Andre and Bella LOVED it, but get to big to fit in it.

    • You know if Andre and Bella approved it, it has to be awesome! Thank them for sharing it with the babies!

  5. So nice to see Stardust and Phoenix. They got mama’s good looks. I hope Mercury and the other kittens are doing well too!

    Current kittens are so adorable. I think the littles are making even more progress because they copy the biggles. 😉 I wish I could lie down and be covered with these kittens, even if they do gnaw on toes and fingers and pull your hair. 😀

  6. I needed to see these sweet healthy kittens today. I’ve been watching the sad reality of what happens to a lot of homeless and feral cat litters over at TinyKittens this week, and still holding my breath for the newborns. I’m so glad all of these mamas and kittens will have better lives here on out thanks to wonderful people like Robyn and Shelly!
