Fizzbin keeps an eye on me.

As does Pinochle.

Uno loves to balance on my feet. (Thankfully it’s been socks-and-slippers weather lately. But barefoot weather is coming!)

5 of the 6 crammed onto the bottom of the scratcher. Fizzbin’s the only one who was like “Hey, there’s a soft place to sleep. Think I’ll sleep there!”

So I slowly slid the scratcher over toward the bed, which earned me this look from Uno (center.)

But y’know what? It worked. They all moved over to the bed within about 10 minutes. Pinochle’s all “Like this, lady?” Yep, just like that!

“Stop worrying about us, lady,” says Whist. “We’ll sleep where we want to!”

Pinochle’s keeping an eye on something. I love his sweet little profile.

Slapjack’s little face – I swear, I could just squoosh him.

Pinochle on the bottom of the pile.

Rummy and Pinochle in my lap.


Archie’s having a case of the Mondays.

2017: Nola was so annoyed that I weighed her kittens and made them cry that she herded them to the back of the crate and gave me baleful looks.
2016: Clearly, they’ve reached the portion of their life when they don’t want to be held and don’t wanna look at the camera, they just want to make getting a decent picture of their faces hard for me.
2015: Kittens make the BEST pillows.
2014: No entry.
2013: “I am sad because I have an eye booger and no one will wipe it off for me.”
2012: “Give us cookies, lady.”

  1. Love your FB pic of Pinochle with the wide open “smile”. Looks so much like momma!

  2. Oh, Archie, I’m with you on this Monday morning!

    Fizzbin seems to be the brains of the bunch!

  3. How do kittens change SO fast? One minute they are tiny helpless lumps who do nothing but eat and sleep, and the next they’re fully functioning wee cats. The cuteness level is off the charts!

    • I’ve seen so many litter grows up, and it is perpetually amazing to me, how fast they change. It’s crazy!

  4. Oh I love the tale of the successful bed suggestion via a little forced proximity! Quite a moment of triumph, that – despite Uno’s dubious assessment, haha. These babies.

    Psst. The 2020 entry doesn’t seem to be linked? Just saying. I know that you have approximately 3.5 million other more important things going on 🙂

    • This is one of the rare times something I did worked out the way I wanted it to!

      And thank you for pointing out the missed link – that was really going to annoy me in 2022 when I realized it wasn’t there. It’s fixed now! 🙂
