I have a question for the readership… I’m sure we’ve all had our share of long cat scratches, intentional (!) or not (sudden loud scary noise). I never seem to be able to find long skinny band-aids that will cover scratches averaging 3-4 inches long. The longest band-aid lengths I can find never seem to be quite long enough, or are way too wide. Has anyone come across a good product to bandage these long scratches?
How does Stinkerbelle like Sugarbutt on her cupboards? We need a *glare* picture! Actually, I would love a Throwback Thursday with lots of glare pictures. I know you have a whole lot of Alice glaring pictures. I often enter that in the search box just to look at them…
Sugarbutt’s pretty smart – he doesn’t get too close to Stinkerbelle, and gives her her space, so she doesn’t have a problem with him. (And I’ll keep the Throwback Thursday: Glare idea in mind – I like it!)
Is Carlin being neutered too or is he to young?
Carlin was neutered at the same time as the rest – in fact, it was only because he was over two pounds that I made the appointment, otherwise I would have just waited.
Robyn, I have to share this very short story because it was all your fault. My friend Julie called to say she was checking out at the grocery store, getting her coupons in order, when the cashier said “girl grandbaby or boy grandbaby?”. Julie (just over fifty and not a mother, therefore not a grandmother), assumed the cashier was talking to someone else. Cashier repeated “girl grandbaby or boy grandbaby?”. Julie looked at her with a questioning expression, and saw the bagger hold up a jar of chicken baby food. Julie stared long enough to make the person seriously regret the grandbaby reference, than smiled and said “old cat, no teeth.”
Ha, I love it! If I had a nickel for every time a cashier asked about my weird purchase of a large number of chicken baby food jars, I’d be sitting pretty!
I’ve forgotten, but which one was the little hissy baby-kitteh when born? I remember there was one especially that just kept hissing but can’t remember which one.
They were all pretty hissy, but Roseanne and Shecky were the hissiest, as I recall.
The whole bunch of them at 4 days old, hissing like a nest of snakes:
From Susan, about how Creed is doing:
Creed is doing well. He’s still a bit of a bully and instead of reacting when someone gets in his face, he will seek them out and whack them. Doesn’t matter who – he is an equal opportunity whacker. I don’t see blood or clumps of hair nor do I hear much fighting so the others are apparently holding their own against him. He loves people though and would really like to get out of the catroom and have a place of his own.
Am I the only one who likes to hear Robyn’s voice on the videos when she talks to the kitties? You have such a sweet accent!
I am torn between “Thank you!” and “I DO NOT HAVE AN ACCENT!” I mean, come on – I’ve only lived in Alabama for almost 19 years, that’s hardly enough time to pick up an accent. 😉
Robyn, where did you get those beds that attach to the window? And do they seem to be pretty steady? My Frannie loves looking out the window, but the sill is pretty small, and I’d like to find something that she could lay on (or nap on in the sunshine!).
Those are Sunny Seat cat beds, which I got at Amazon. They do seem to be pretty steady – I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures, but the suction cups on the bottom of the beds are actually too wide for the windows in the foster room, so they’re just lightly wedged between the window sills and the windows. They’re nice and sturdy, and I’ve never seen them wobble at all, even when Lucy and the kittens were all piled up into one bed. I did have one in the window downstairs for our cats, and put Tommy in it with no wobbling. The only problem I can see with the bed is that if you have blinds or shades that you pull down at night, they’ll gap open where the supports are. That’s not a problem for us, since I never pull down the shades in the kitten room, but if you have nosy neighbors it could be an issue.
I stuck this feather teaser (well, with the feathers chewed down to just nubs, it’s more of featherLESS teaser. It teases you with the idea that there were feathers there once) in the holes on the Kitty Connection (it’s this one, if you’re curious) just to get it out of the way while I was cleaning the room, and it drove Belushi CRAYZEE.
Oh, sweet Louis. Why your eyes gotta change? They’re changing much more slowly than the other kittens’ eyes, but they’re definitely changing. He reminds me of Kennebec – who we nicknamed Lunk on his second trip through the foster room – who had the exact same color eyes when he went off to Petsmart, but when he came back six months later (he was adopted and then returned because the adopters were moving), his eyes were this gorgeously striking color:
