Phoenix and Stardust starring in…

Sisterly love (or not).

Stardust’s twisted-around look at the camera is cracking me UP.

(Thanks, Debra!)


Millie the lap bunny.

Bethel comes up for a hug.

Arundel has a think.

I love that dab of white on Eliot’s back, among all the gray.

Otis in the basket, lookin’ floofy.

Every morning I strip the kitten room of all washable bedding (washable pee pads from under the litter boxes and under the crates, blankets, cat beds), toss them into a pile by the door, then “remake” the room with clean blankets, etc. My laundry assistants think that climbing on, in, and around the dirty bedding is the height of fun.

“What? Is comfy!”

(I do 3-4 loads of laundry on those days. On the days I completely strip down, spray down, mop, and clean the room, I do 6-8 loads. This is much more laundry than I do when I have NON ringworm-ridden kittens, FYI.)

Oh, Eliot. You are so darn pretty.

8 of the 9 at breakfast (Arundel doesn’t join them at the plate – she wanders along later and bats cleanup.)

After bath day on Sunday, I walked into the room and all 9 kittens were stuffed into this carrier. (There was a small heater going, so it was about 90 degrees in that room.)

I should maybe get a bigger carrier.

Dexter came out and got into the box. Look at that little smile!

“Lady, gimme that camera. I gots to take a selfie!”


The ever-vigilant sheriff keeps an eye on things.

2012: “This is oddly comfy.”
2011: No entry.
2010: No entry.

  1. Look at Bethel’s beautiful eyes!

    Otis looks like that kid who always manages to get food all over his new school shirt, jumps in the mud for sh1ts and giggles, and who can’t keep his shoes tied for the life of him. He’s got that perpetual smudge on his little wee face and bed head, and man is he ever adorable.

  2. Love that from above shot of the packed carrier!!

    Probably BorkBorkMoopleton Esq. called a meeting to talk about THAT Bath Lady.

    Wow… lotta lotta cleaning and laundry going on over there!! Good thing they are awfully cute!

  3. Does Otis have schmingscherm all over his poor little nose or is it just irritated from breakfast? And how is the battle going? New lesions still appearing or are things starting to look up? It’s such a frustrating virus!

  4. Thank you for sharing that hilarious pic, Deb M.! It’s like Phoenix found the inflation tube on a blow-up Stardust doll and the body parts havent yet assembled into a “normal” shape.

    And maybe because it’s that time of year in the archives, but doesnt Dexter in the box look a bit like Stompers asking for a kiss, “Pweeeeeze??”

  5. I’m on vacation this week. I miss my cats (they are being looked after). Thanks for the kitten fix!

  6. Just saw the note for Maxi. I’m so sorry, she was special. She lived by her rules and we all knew who was the boss.

    Just so sudden, I know that youre probably in still in shock.
