Big name for a little Benjamin.

Honey was unsure about this situation.

Bugs thinks we need cuter blocks.

Lola’s all “I ain’t going near those blocks and you can’t make me, lady.”

I like how the Toastycat bed is looking on approvingly at Bugs the Cutie.

Lola would like it known that she is also a Cutie.

My plan to have the Cuties box completely consumed by kittens is right on track, I see.

Sleepy attitude.

Bunny’s keeping an eye on me.


Honey’s the only one I’ve seen going through that scratcher, and she does it in style.

Bugs in the Toastycat bed. Yes, I put him there. But he stayed!

And then I put the others in to join him, and Lola was all “Really, lady?”

Bunny said “Why have you made a kitten sandwich with my children?” (Note to self: I need tomato and lettuce toys to complete this kitten sandwich idea.)

Bunny is off for her spay surgery this morning! I imagine we’ll be home again by mid-day.

Yes, Bunny will continue to produce milk, and she will allow her kittens to nurse until they’re weaned. Which, reminder: I’ve had exactly one mother cat wean her kittens. In my experience mothers usually let their kittens nurse until they’re adopted out. If Bunny decides to be the one mother who won’t let her kittens nurse after she’s spayed (I doubt it), I’ve got the supplies to bottle feed. Also, the kittens are starting to show a little interest in the canned food Bunny loves so much, so I suspect they’ll be eating on their own before too long.

I know Bunny is shockingly thin and looks even more so since she’s shaved. She is not going to put on substantial weight until she’s no longer nursing kittens. It’s not a lack of food that’s keeping her thin, it’s that all the food she eats is turned into energy for her kittens. As utterly adorable as they are, I am very glad that this is her last litter.

  1. I LOVE THE ALPHABET BLOCKS!! And the mere THOUGHT of tomato and lettuce toys for the kitten sandwich is killing me dead.

    Does Bunny have THUMBS??? I feel you would’ve mentioned this, so it must be the angle.

  2. BRB laughing forever at the idea of tomato and lettuce toys for the kitten sandwich.

    The alphabet blocks are adorable and will make for good size comparisons as they grow up.

    I love Bunny. She’s an amazing cat.

  3. So is the Toasty cat bed still being shunned by all the kittens unless you plop them inside it? I love Bunny, too! She is beautiful. I love her “expressive” face!

  4. How is Bunny’s neck healing? She’s still wearing her kerchief. I bet she will be gorgeous once her fur gross in.

  5. I can’t wait to see how Bunny looks when her coat grows back in. Are those darker spots in her fur or just places where they didn’t cut the fur down as far? Does she have black guard hairs and a smokey grey undercoat?

  6. Being shaved makes even regular-sized cats look thin, so an already-thin kitty looks pathetic! Nonetheless, Bunny is so beautiful! I hope she’s at your house long enough that we get to see her with her coat grown in. Hey, you’re down a few permanent residents, aren’t you?????

  7. The banner for Puff came up and made me remember which cat Bunny resembles. It’s her mustache!

    About the lettuce and tomato toys, you might also consider including some mustard, ketchup, and mayo condiment packet toys. My cat used to have a catnip candy bar (flat felt with filling). I’d suggest pickle relish, but it would be too messy, lol.
