A can full o’ Marshall! What more could you want?

This boy cracks me up.

Blaster, checkin’ things out.

Crossed-arms Blaster. SO CUTE.

Marshall, ready for nappin’ time.

Marshall, nursing on the edge of my shirt.

Grant thinks this Stephen King guy makes some tasty books.

“Dog-hair cat toy! I’ve been LOOKING for one of these!”

“Hey. Who’s THAT?”

Grant checks out the mirror situation.

“That looks like a WAY better room! How do I get in THERE?”

Sweet, flirty Marshall.

“Gurrrrrl, you did NOT just say there’s no snack tonight. Don’t make me start a riot!”

What happens if you accidentally leave a roll of paper towels where kittens can get hold of it? Lots of fun! (For them, anyway.) Presented at 2x speed, because it’s funnier that way.

What Stefan does 23 hours and 50 minutes a day (though not ALWAYS in that location or position.)

The other 10 minutes of every day, he chases gum balls (from the zillions of Black Gum trees on our property), watches squirrels, and brings (live, unhurt) baby bunnies into the house. It’s a full life, is what I’m saying.

  1. That second shot if Marshall – looks like he’s giving you the eyes of lurve.

  2. Was I the only person who read the lead-in for the video and said ‘oh noooo … RIP paper towels it was nice knowing you’ and clicked on the video?

    • Haha – I was actually able to save most of the roll! There were only a few shredded parts. πŸ™‚

    • No I was expecting the same! Came into the shelter one morning to find that the kitties had gotten hold of a roll and shredded the entire thing overnight. It looked like it had snowed in the kitchen!

      • HAHAHA! My boy bunny kicked a whole role till it was disemboweled and thoroughly dead!

  3. awww… what a super sweet post for a Monday morning… Marshall, as always, made me smile & want to give him virtual kisses on that little stripey noggin, and that video made me giggle in a few places… these Doodles certainly are “special” LOL

    • They’re ginger kitties XD Marmies are special and that’s just how it is.

  4. Poor Stefan, again worn out to the bone with all the chores he is forced to do. You should be ashamed…

  5. I don’t know what brand of paper towels you are using, but you need to send the company that clip to use in a commercial! Those paper towels held together much better than I thought they would. I was expecting it to look like a ticker tape parade had gone through the foster room!

  6. Oh and I’m late with this comment, but the side-eye picture of Grant from last week – you need to put that next to the infamous “Inspector Stompers not judging you” picture, with a caption that says “But I totally am”! πŸ˜€

  7. Love the paper towel video πŸ™‚ One of the cats in the FIV+ building also likes paper towels. He grabs the roll, bunny kicks it and chews it to shreds. Unfortunately, our paper towels were in bad shape.

    Stefan brings live unhurt bunnies? I’m jealous…

    • Well, he’s brought us two. I’m hoping he doesn’t bring any more than that, two’s a good number!

  8. I loved that video of those silly monkeys getting frisky with the paper towel roll! Proof once again that some of the best cat toys are the ones that aren’t marketed as toys at all.

    • Nope, just the two. I’m hoping that’s the last we see of them, but I’m SURE there’ll be more at some point!

  9. I saw this post yesterday and totally missed the addition of two kittens. So when I saw today’s (Monday’s) post I was like…who’s Blaster? And Mooch? Now I know. Blaster just blended right in with the original doodles.

    • Blaster’s the one who ties the two bunches together – he’s got a blotch on his nose like his brother, but he’s colored like Marshall. I think it’s kind of neat that we’ve got two buff tabbies, two orange and white, and two brown tabbies upstairs now (if you include Dennis, that is.)

  10. Robyn, your fosters have the coolest toys! How nice of you to supply them with paper towels!
    I watched the vid first thing in what I knew would be a horrid day knowing I needed it to get me through. I was right and am now home with the beverage of my choice, watching the vid again and again. Thanks, and thank the little ones for me.

  11. I posted the info about Dennis and Livia to the local subreddit for your area, the rescuecats subreddit, and the care subreddit yesterday. You can find the posts here: http://www.reddit.com/r/HuntsvilleAlabama/comments/27nu5j/sweet_challengers_house_cats_need_a_home_xpost/, http://www.reddit.com/r/rescuecats/comments/27nv1c/sweet_cats_need_a_home_xpost_rcare/, http://www.reddit.com/r/care/comments/27nzzo/request_sweet_cats_need_a_home_xpost/

    It was all I could think of, since I live in NY, and don’t know anybody in that region. Even if it doesn’t get any good leads for you, it does get the info shared in the places where help can be found. I hope you don’t mind.

    • Janna, thank you so much for posting there! It never even occurred to me, hopefully it’ll help get his face in front of the right eyes. πŸ™‚
