Ibby pointed out that Norbert is woefully underrepresented in the Dragons’ pictures. This is because he tends to hang out in the back of the crate or under his siblings.

Hangin’ with Ruthie.

I’d say that these kittens spend about 75% of their awake time rolling around on their backs.

“Madame, I don’t believe I care for your tone.”

Puff and Scorch have been toddling to the opening of the crate and peeking out at the world beyond more and more often. No one’s actually made it outside the crate (that I know of yet), but it’ll be happening pretty soon, I’m sure.

Here’s a video of the Dragons, being cute, flailing around, just generally being adorable.

Buttercup, amazed.

Leia’s all “Ohmygawwwwwd, stop it with the camera already, wouldya?”

“Heyyyyyy, Macarena!”

Honestly, her little face kills me dead.

Three little Royals, all in a row.

Aslan is just determined to GET that tail.

Was I wildly waving a feather teaser around, do you suppose?

Oh, I annoy her so.

But seriously, the floof. I just can’t help myself!

Uh oh – the ray of sun got him. There’s no saving this boy from Sleepytown.

Kate, coming in to check on the babies.

“Eight ball in the corner pocket.”

The part of Troll under the Hall Bookcase will be played by Buttercup (she likes to swipe at her sister and brothers when they run by.)

If you look closely, you can see the difference in their eye colors. Charming (left) has greener eyes, Buttercup’s are more brown-gold.

Jareth and Buttercup, keeping an eye on the feather teaser.

A boy and his ball.

Newt, obeying Loony Jake’s demands for a bath. He’s such a bossy boy, that Jake.

“ExCUSE me, can we have some PRIVACY, please?”


2012: Whipper and the Newbs (aka Logie and Newbery) hanging out on the cat tree in the sun.
2011: Actually, thatโ€™s another way Dorothy and Alice are alike: theyโ€™re small, but they have NO fear when it comes to the other cats.
2010: Oh, I loved her immediately.
2009: He still says she’s ugly.
2008: No entry.
2007: Vampire Kitty likes to spend his days on top of the cupboards, where it’s warm and relatively dark.
2006: No entry.
2005: No entry.

  1. <3 Norbert and Scorch (because I'm betting if I had known Thunderbolt and Fireball at that age they would have looked like that! Well furrier probably for Thunderbolt because Charming is a mini-me – when I met Thunderbolt at 8 weeks old and brought him home he looked just like Charming looks now.)

  2. Thanks for the Norbert close-ups — his white eyeliner makes him look terribly distinguished, even professorial! Buttercup’s eyes are amazing, too. I give in: both litters are great. Many thanks for the Saturday scoop, Robyn, and the Newt and Jake shots are a delight. I wonder if any of the babies will end up as lifers like that lucky twosome. And have you ever thought of doing a 365-day Crooked Acres calendar? You already have more than enough shots and super captions to choose from.

    • I have thought of doing a 365-day calendar and would love to, but Cafepress doesn’t offer that sort of thing, and I haven’t found any other places that offer a daily print-on-command calendar. I think that you have to have a publisher backing you on something like that (as Cute Overload does).

  3. Someone should adopt Leia and Aslan together, what a pair they’d be!

    The latest batch of kittehs are growing like weeds. Peering out at the world, seeing a big, scary place out there… But curiosity will soon lead them out to discover that big, bad room!

  4. Haha Jake and Newt! That caption is perfect.

    All of those babies are adorable. I don’t know what I would do with myself all day with all those babies at my disposal. <3

  5. OH – look at his sweet little face! They are all adorable but I just have a soft spot in my heart for him since he had a rough first day. I am so glad everything worked out. Thank you Robyn for the pics and especially for taking him in.

    Puff looks like he is guarding the entrance to the castle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. “โ€œHeyyyyyy, Macarena!โ€ or could be Psy kitty imitation of Psy’s “Gangnam style?”

  7. Ruthie is saying “Dis is my bruddah and he don’t like the picture takin’ so stop! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Line dancing and pool playing? What type of milk bar are you running down there? ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Oh my… please don’t tell him… Norbert does NOT look anything like his brothers and sisters, his head shape and cheeks… (sad face). Anyways, he’s still a cutie… Prince Charming has stolen my heart. (They all have really… both sets of kitties). It may be just me, as I don’t think they’re that old, but Newt and Jake in that last picture just scream Walter Mattheau (sp?) and Jack Lemmon in Grumpy Old Men… coming in second would be Statler and Waldorf from The Muppets… Ok. It’s a Saturday.. my mind is mush. Thank you so much for the weekend post… and… don’t read any analysis into the above… that’s kinda scary, right? Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!

  9. I predict Puff is going to grow up to be the most beautiful cat EVAR. Sorry, Corbs.

  10. The Dragons are getting cuter and cuter every day. And thank you for the Norbert pictures! He’s absolutely darling. And Ruth with that round little belly just slays me with The Cute.

  11. Hey Robyn, have you see this cat toy before? A friend works for a local drug store chain and they’re going to start carrying it – he tested it out on his own cat! https://vine.co/v/bEL9KOdxPLP He said they have to put it away out of sight or the cat would play with it 24×7!

    • I have seen that! I actually had one, and the kittens managed to keep breaking the “arm” off – or just sitting on the toy so that it would stop moving. I’ve still got one around here somewhere, I believe, I just need to find it and get it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. It seems the two oldest, Ruthie and Norbie, have formed a bond. They seem to be close to each other most of the time.

  13. Norbert. Sigh.

    Perhaps a little more ‘afterbirth goop’ might have been in order?

    Next time.

    • OMG The Daily Otter? I an dying. I just saw Ring of Bright Water for the first time an few weeks ago and I have been otter obsessed ever since! Thank you, Anna!

  14. All of the dragons are beyond precious….but if I had to take two (no arm twisting would be required) it would be Ruth (I am a sucker for her coloring and her belly slays me) and Puff. Scorch is right behind….
    You naming Saturday Kitterday makes me smile (and nostalgic) everytime I see it. I had a cat Kitter Kat (aka Kitters) that I got for Christmas in 1986. She was the coolest, smartest, mama lov’n cat ever. She passed in Oct 2003. I still miss her today. You know…she was one of the really special ones.

    • By the way, that is why my email address is what it is. I opened that email account when she was 13. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Newtles AND Jake! I have died and gone to cat picture heaven! Thank you for those, Robyn!!!!
