It’s kind of a Throw Back Thursday – today’s post is devoted to two little (well… formerly little!) Dragons.
Guess what today is?
Do you remember?
That’s RIGHT – today marks the one year anniversary of when Fred (“accidentally”) locked me in the foster room (which is now his office), leaving me to helplessly throw myself against the door over and over again to break down the door and free myself.
And oh yeah, there was some cat or another giving birth. Or something.
(You can read Khaleesi’s birthin’ story here. Though she gave birth on the evening of May 1st, I didn’t get a chance to post the whole story ’til the 3rd.)
When all was said and done (and cleaned up), the happy little family looked like this.
So today I have updates on not one but TWO of those little Dragons!
First, the kitten we named Puff. Because he looked like a (big-headed) puff of smoke! He’s now Hook, of course, and lives with his Mom Selena and big brother Flynn.
Here are a few of my favorite baby Hook pics, put together in a collage (you can click on it to see the larger version over at Flickr).
Here’s the update (and pictures!) from Selena.
Big brother still insists on checking to make sure he is cleaning his ears. (Note: big brother Flynn was with us for a little while in late 2012 – he was Kohle back then.)
Remember Norbert, the lucky little orphan who came to us while Khaleesi was still having her babies? We slipped him right in there with the other kittens, and although Khaleesi was puzzled, she mothered him right along with the others, because she’s such a good girl. He went off to Chicago with Kirsten. I just love it when kittens get to go right from here to their forever home without having to stop at Petsmart!
Here’s his collage of kitten pictures (that picture of him on the far upper right makes me laugh. He looks so much like a little Yoda!)
And the update!
This photo is from October 7th. My idea was to use the duster as a gauge for his growth. I didn’t plan on him thinking it would be an awesome toy and make it nearly impossible to get good shots because he was trying to eat it:/
Norbie remains a little lovebug. I cannot remember ever having a cat that willingly allowed so much snorgling of the belly. He’s weighing in at 11 pounds, so has avoided the Crooked Acres Huge Cat Syndrome (so far).
Once in a while he’s a little devilish and pokes at brother Riley to get a rise out of him – that’s a lot of fun when it happens at 4am. Brat.
Happy birthday to all the Dragons and thanks again for raising such a wonderful boy!
Thank you so much, Selena and Kirsten, for the updates and pictures. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say we love seeing those boys all grown up and gorgeous as can be!
