Kim’s all “Did you need something, lady?”

“No really, did you?”

The first of many “What doin’, weird lady?” looks from Saul.

Mike would like to report that Lalo’s behind makes an excellent pillow.

Lalo’s all “SIGH. You weighed me YESTERDAY and the day BEFORE, why you weighing me AGAIN?”

Mama snoopervises the weighing of Mike.

When Nacho’s not actually nursing, he’s dreaming about nursing.

Kim Wexler: SUCH a pretty girl.

Francesca’s serious little face kills me.


I’m a little surprised that Charlie can still stuff himself into that bed, but stuff himself he does!


Posted on social media (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr) yesterday.

This sleepy little pile is sleeping in this morning. ❤️

On the left is Kristi, our sweet, sweet foster from 2018. On the right is Pistol Annie, who we didn’t foster, but was the mother to 5 of the kittens who made up our huge litter The Vittles in 2020. Brittany reports that Kristi and Pistol Annie are often found curled up together in this spot. (They’re both at Michelle’s house, both available for adoption still.)⁠

(Yes, Kristi’s daughter Katia – who we fostered alongside Kristi and was also pregnant when we got her (Katia had 4 kittens, Kristi had 6) – is also still at Michelle’s house.)

That’s a sleepy pile of kittens, right there – with Gus on the bottom!

5 of these kittens (Francesca, Gus, Lalo, Ignacio, and Saul) are 2 weeks old today! Mike is 10 days old. They all have open eyes, though they were kinda sleepy here and not cooperating with my attempts to capture the beauty of those deep blue eyes. Trust me: they’re GORGEOUS.

That’s one active milk bar… and Kim’s thousand-yard stare is cracking me up. Just a few more weeks, sweet mama!

“MAMAAAAAAA! SAVE MEEEEEE!” yelled Francesca. Across the room, Kim just kept on eating.

Good night innernets. (Lalo)

  1. I’d love to know what Fred is calling the kittens, especially since there are a few that look alike. I saw something on the internet about funny names that kids give things that are actually very accurate (like calling an aquarium a “fish zoo”) and I immediately thought of Fred and his kitten names lol!

    • I wish I had names to report, but Fred hasn’t so much as glanced at the kittens. He finds them incredibly boring at this age – it isn’t until they’re about 2 1/2 – 3 months old that he becomes interested in them (he always complains that they leave “Just when they were getting interesting!”) I’ll report any nicknames when they occur in a few months. 🙂

  2. Is Mike striped like a tabby? It’s a bit hard to tell because he seems pretty busy fighting for his favourite spot at the milk bar! And speaking of kittens, is it true that Roger has found his furever home?

    • He does have some subtle stripes, though those might be harder to see as he gets older.

      And someone has applied to adopt Roger (he had an application previously, but that didn’t work out). Keeping my fingers crossed that this one works out!

      • Thanks, Robyn! Hoping for the best for him, as well Brianna, Jenny and Lizzy. Each and every one of them are adorable!
