Scorch would like to remind you that he is beeeeeyoooootiful.
Scorch is bracing himself for what he knows is about to happen. Because it always DOES.
“My brudder cannot keep his paws to his ownself.”
“Does this paw taste funny to you?”
“Just a little like litter. Isn’t that what it’s supposed to taste like?”
Okay, so. I had never ever seen this happen before. I’ve been giving Khaleesi extra snacks during the day on top of the small dresser in the closet. I was hanging out with the kittens while she ate the other day, and then she started making a keening noise, jumped down from the dresser, and walked into the room with this wad of food in her mouth. She called and called, and eventually Puff and Scorch ran over and ate the food that she had dropped on the floor for them. I’ve never seen a mama cat do that before (but I suspect they do it all the time, just not when I’m around!)
Norbert, balancing on the scratcher. They all love to do this – then they hit a certain weight and the scratcher tips over!
“Pardon me, I’m having some quiet time with my baby sock monkey.”
Sometimes his brothers and sisters are racing around like wild things, and Norbert isn’t in the mood for racing around, so he hangs out under the doll bed with a toy or two.
“Paws up, y’all!”
Ember’s latest trick is climbing up the back of my shirt. It would be cuter if it wasn’t so painful. Time to trim those claws!
Jon Snow would like you to know that he is much better looking when he’s had a bath. He doesn’t want you to think that he still looks like he did in that first (blurry) picture you saw of him!
Rolling around after meal time. Nothing happier than a baby with an empty bladder and a full belly.
Arya, at the beginning of a yawn.
Hodor, checking out the floor. In the past couple of days, they’ve gone from squirming around on their bellies to actually getting their legs under them so that they can totter around.
Brandon, rolling around in my lap. Look at that fat little belly!
It’s possible that Arya just finished eating and is waiting patiently to go potty.
Jon Snow’s always the first to decide it’s time to go back to sleep, whereupon he hooks his chin over the back of the nearest sibling. Arya’s like “But I’m not ready to sleep yet!”
I have a video for you guys! The first couple of sections are of the kittens at the front of their carrier, letting me know that it’s time to EAT. The last three sections are of them actually eating. Look at those ears go! (That loud humming you can hear in the background is the bathroom fan – it comes on automatically when you turn the light on. It doesn’t seem to bother the kittens.) There isn’t a clip where Jon Snow is eating, because the camera chose to focus on my arm instead.
Previously 2012: Pro Summer tip: line your windowsills with kittens to keep the cool air from seeping out. 2011: Macushla’s in charge of guarding the food.
2010: No entry.
2009: No entry. 2008: What a difference 10 weeks makes, huh? 2007: Is it just me, or do these look like weirdly posed scenes, like something you’d see in the JC Penney catalog?
2006: No entry. 2005: I mean, I have NEVER dealt with a cat in heat before.
