Hollyhock is absolutely fascinated by my desk.

Kudzu from above.

Mondo just hanging out on the windowsill, hugging the file cabinet. As you do.

Kudzu using Mr. Rattie as a pillow.

Clover (front) and Mondo are pretty sure it’s time for a nap.

They are raaather fond of the big cat tree downstairs, if you hadn’t noticed.

Hollyhock climbed up to the top of the tree just so I could get a picture of all 5 of them on the tree. She’s a giver!

The kittens are off for their surgeries today! I expect we’ll be back here in time for a long afternoon nap. Usually the boys don’t even notice anything’s different. I expect Hollyhock will bounce back pretty quickly, too.

They’re 13 weeks old today!


Alice is all “Tryin’ to sleep here, lady.”

Posted on social media (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr) yesterday.

My new assistant felt the need to taste-test the tissues. (Don’t worry, I took the box away from her!)

It is Taco Tuesday; may I offer you a Bramble taco? Can you handle the heat?

The kittens discovered an area of the downstairs I refer to as “Khal’s play area” because permanent resident Khal LOVES those track toys. I can often hear him playing in the middle of the night.

That is the Catit Design Sense Circuit, and it is apparently awesome.

It’s Toesday, which is when I try to remember to trim the kittens’ claws. Clover takes up much more of my lap than he did when I first started trimming claws!

Complaints? They’ve got a few. It always cracks me up just how talkative these kittens are when they’re sleepy.

Line ’em up! Left to right: Kudzu, Clover, Hollyhock, Bramble and Mondo.

Good night innernets. (Kudzu & Mondo)

  1. Question, likely for the Friday round up:

    I know cats/kittens sneeze and yawn and even fart. But have you ever had a kitten burp?

    I ask because I accidentally burped in my ginger and white girl’s face (Dr. Pepper will do that for ya) and she looked SOOOO offended. I’ve sneezed in her face and she in mine, and we’ve traded yawns before. But I’ve never had her, or any previous cat, burp. Ever. Or at least not in my hearing.

    Google says it’s possible. But has anyone actually seen/heard one?

    • My girl does every now and again. I don’t remember if my other cats did, but she definitely does occasionally

    • Oh absolutely, I hear kitten burps all the time (usually right after they’ve eaten!) I hear the occasional burp from the adults, too, but not nearly as often.

  2. Love the pictures and the commentary! I will miss the sprouts, as well as you Robyn! You continue to do an excellent job in fostering so many cats over the years. If you foster again, how will I know? Thanks again. Love to you and all the sprouts, and of course Ms. Mimosa who is in her fur ever home with no more pregnancies in her future!

  3. Hollyhock looks like her head is on backward in that first picture. It’s cracking me up.
