The doll bed gets the Norbs seal of approval.

“Am. So. Sleepy.”

Scorch is getting ever closer to growing out of that basket.

Nap time for everyone.

Have I mentioned that Norbert is getting way floofier than I expected?

“Come OUT from under the bed, you big baby!”

Yesterday, after I got home from dropping off the Royals for their spaying and neutering, I started cleaning the big foster room so I could get the Dragons moved over to it. It took me an hour and a half to get that room scrubbed down and the litter boxes set up. Khaleesi and the babies took about 10 minutes to get accustomed to their new digs, and now they think it’s the best thing ever. I walked in at one point during the day and found three of the babies in the condo of the cat tree. It was seriously cute – but of course, me without my camera. I’m sure there’ll be other opportunities to get pictures of that particular cuteness.

Aslan wants to take a nap… but he needs a bath first.

Jake’s face is cracking me UP.

Jake sure is a good big foster brother.

“Please, Mister, a little more?”

“That was exactly what I needed!”

  1. Aslan’s tickedness (tickedness? his fur being ticked.) is GORGEOUS.

    (Ticking? Aslan’s ticking? OMG, Aslan’s ticking! He’s gonna blow!)

    (Sorry. It’s early.)

  2. That Jake/Aslan sequence is SO SWEET, as is the bounty of single shots! Glad Khaleesi and Cree are loving their new digs down there in kitty paradise.

  3. “Come OUT from under the bed, you big baby!” “No!” – made me crack up!

    Suggie looks absolutely squeezable!

  4. Awww I Love Jake! The kittens always love him. I wish we could hear and understand the wisdom he shares with each batch.

  5. OH Jake. You are so adored by so many people you don’t know.

    Scorcha is so adorable in that green basket.

  6. awww Jake…..every foster house needs a good older “uncle” to break in the kittens 🙂

    bet those dragons have the new room conquered in no time

  7. I started following you a little over a year ago, in time for the announcement of the Noms… my first view was Emmy’s “Aliens in There” video. I realized that Mr. Stompers arrived about a year ago so every day, yes don’t miss one, I check out that little ‘Monkey’ as you fondly called him! Can you remind me the post date recently of his 1 year old picture? Thanks! I just wish I was vacationing near your PetSmart in a few weeks. I’d swoop down and grab Leia, Ruth and Embers – OMG, they are beautiful! I think I am of the floofy kitten persuasion – Sir Flooferton, Flooferness, Floofy-butt (aka Russet) was THE most handsome-est man! Thanks Robyn!

  8. Hold on a second… Stompers was a YEAR AGO?!? And Coltrane was hit TWO YEARS AGO?!? Miss them both still!

    And absolutely love Mr Uncle Jake 🙂

  9. Jake giving Aslan a bath is some serious weapons-grade cuteness!

    And that picture of Sugarbutt wishing he could teleport outside is so perfect. What kind of birds do you usually get that drive the cats so crazy?

    • It’s mostly the Blue Jays, this time of year. We get all kinds, but the Blue Jays are particularly thick around the feeders right now.

  10. After a craptastic week at work, that top picture just makes me smile. I wish I could cuddle them.
    When they do lay offs they should offer puppeh or kitteh therapy.

    • Awww, I’m sorry you’re having a bad week, Shai – and glad the kitty pics help. I think maybe kittens and puppies need to be part of the layoff package!
