Jareth was adopted last night!!!

And not only that – he was adopted into the same family as Charming (now Toby)! Don’t you love it when siblings go to the same home, and get to spend their entire lives together? So sweet!

Dropping off Khaleesi went just fine, and I got to see Jareth one more time before he went home. I also got to see Aslan, Leia, and Buttercup. They continue to be unbearably adorable, of course. Khaleesi could not have looked less stressed out, and when I left the store she was sitting on top of the litter box (they have covered litter boxes in their cages), snoozing.

Ember looks like she’s doing her best to sail that track toy across the floor.

Oh Norbs… you are totally… adorbs. (Oh, come on. I had to!)

“I know, right?”

“Hey, that room in THERE looks WAY more interesting. How do I get in THERE?”

Sleepy, sleepy Puff.

Ruth’s stripes just kill me dead.

She’s still got that gorgeous purply-blue around the outside of her eyes. SO pretty.

Scorch is just the nosiest boy. He keeps an eye on the other kittens and makes sure they’re not doing something they shouldn’t. Maybe he’s a Sheriff in the making!

Arya appears to be in a terribly awkward position, but she was sound asleep. I guess she’s young and flexible enough that it doesn’t hurt her back when she sleeps like that!

They spotted me coming into the room, and here they come.


That serious little face makes me want to pick her up and kiss her 10,000 times a day.


Brandon prepares to climb the wall (or rather my leg, so he can join his siblings in my lap.)

Hodor is having Deep Thoughts.

Arya, wringing her paws. What’s got you worried, little one?

“NO, Hodor. NO. There’s no room in the lap for a Hodor!”

Tom Cullen, in a rare moment when Stinkerbelle isn’t demanding that he groom her. She’s been very bossy with him lately. It’s a rough life for an Ambassador.

  1. I think poor Puff is tired from having to cart around that huge bucket head of his!!!

  2. Poor little worried Arya. And Ember has been listening to too much AWOLNation “Sail”.

    And Robyn, to be totally hipster, your Norbs comment is “totes adorbs”.

  3. I think it is awesome that the BLACK kittens and Kate have been the ones adopted – apparently the rule that the blacks are the last to be considered doesn’t apply there. I’m shocked it wasn’t Leia or Aslan first adopted. But I’m glad glad glad for Jareth and Charming.

    • It surprised me too – but I think that part of the reason she decided on Jareth (I think she was considering Aslan, too) is because she knows that black cats tend to wait and wait to be adopted.

      Several black cats have been adopted in the past couple of weeks, which is absolutely awesome!

  4. I can picture Scorch in the back of Ember’s ring-boat, making motor noises and trying to push her across the floor, hee hee!
    Ruth looks like a bunch of different cats all stuck together to make one! Some stripes, some buff, some white, some of this and some of that! But I can see now that the spots around her eyes/head are not orange as I had supposed, thinking she was a calico. I don’t know if the color changed or if I’m just seeing it correctly now but she sure is an adorable little lady.

  5. How is it that Aslan, Leia, and Buttercup have yet to be adopted?! What is wrong with people?!

    Also, Her Royal Uterus is ready to go any day now, apparently. Maybe the kittens are waiting for their human counterpart to come along before they get themselves adopted?

    (I really am happy for Jareth and Charming, though. They are such cuties, and I’m so glad they’ll be together!)

  6. “Hodor.”
    Just another Robyn classic! And hip, hip, hooray for handsome Jareth — may his siblings and Khaleesi be next up.

  7. Ember TOTALLY looks like she’s trying to set sail! Hahaha, that cracked me up!

  8. Yay Jareth!!! And I’d love to know what made the family decide to come back and get another kitten. Maybe Charming/Toby was lonely?

    When I look at Ember at the helm of the SS Trackship, I hear Christopher Cross singing “Sailing” in my head! Sailing, takes me away, from all these pesky ki-eh-ttehs…. 😉

    (Of course, that’s been replaced by Led Zeppelin now!)

    • Charming/Toby was getting a little frustrated – there’s an older cat who Toby very much wanted to play with, but the older cat is, well, older and didn’t quite get the idea. So he needed someone his own age to chase and play with. Which was excellent news for Jareth. 🙂

  9. Yeah for Jareth & Charming!!! LOVE sibling adoptions. 🙂

    What is it about those track ball toys that makes kittens want to sit in the middle? I can’t tell you how many pictures I have with them sitting in there or snoozing in there.

    Must kiss the Hodor!!

  10. Oh wow, apparently a sleepy Puff is an even more adorable Puff than usual! And I’m glad to hear Jareth has a forever home now!

    I saw you had a laptop sitting on the table in the “Nosy Scorch” picture. Do the kittens ever nap on it if it’s been on for a while and all warmed up?

  11. >>Brandon prepares to climb the wall….

    OK – I have only read about 3/4 of the first Game of Thrones book so I don’t know what happens, but I think you better tell Brandon to be careful climbing things.

    Yay for Jareth!!!

  12. Yay for Jareth! I love sibling adoptions, too!
    And WHEN did the Starks get to be such big kittens? Sooooo adorable!
    Special thoughts going to Khaleesi – she’s going to attract a terrific family, I know!

  13. Ember is so adorable in her little “boat”! Actually – all of these kittens are adorable! I’m glad I don’t have to choose one….

  14. It’s always great to hear when one of your fosters gets adopted, especially with a sibling. Like many others, I could not do what you do on a regular basis, because it would be too hard to let them go. But in the end, the reward of seeing them go to a good home is totally worth it. I was fortunate to experience that reward 3 years ago when I rescued a dying 8 week old kitten from my workplace, got her the vet care she needed and found a wonderful home for her with a family member. Today she is happy, healthy, and totally rules her home. So I know the feeling you have when one of yours finds a home, in your case many times over.
    Congrats to Jareth, and his new family.

  15. Norbs.. *sigh* 🙂

    I love the ‘we’re starving’ photo and the one after it, as it looks like she is standing on the floor and not on the wall of the tub.
