How to store your Moop between feedings.

Calais spends a lot of time keeping a close eye on me.

Snuggly boys (Dexter and Otis).

Eliot’s helping to keep KennyBorkBorkMoop clean. It’s a big job, but someone’s gotta.

Oh, that Dexter. Isn’t he just the prettiest little orange floof?

“LADY. You go ‘way! I’m snuggling with my sister!” (Eliot & Buxton)

Millie’s all “Hi, innernets. HI!”

So many balls, so little time.

Bird watchin’.

Between that fabulous fur and those fabulous eyes, Bethel is one striking girl.

Laying in the bus bed, bunny-kicking a toy mouse, as you do. (Millinocket)

Arundel, snugglin’ with Dexter. These kittens sure love snuggling.


Video! The long counter/built-in desk has been kitten-free for the most part, because they weren’t able to get up there. Calais and Arundel have broken the code, requiring me to move all the stuff that was on the counter. I’d be annoyed, but they’re SO pleased with themselves that I can’t be anything but amused at the brats.

Newt, sittin’ pretty.


Also, I wrote this about Khal one year ago:

Khal Drogo – formerly known as Fancypants v2.0 – is still here, still doing fine. I’ve petted him perhaps three times. He still runs when he sees me. WHATEVER, CAT. Hmph.

This is what Khal now does every evening at TV time.

  1. Oh, that flop/fall off the end of the counter! I had to watch it several times in a row. SO VERY graceful!! And the KennyBorkBorkMoopleton III, Esquire basket is PERFECT, it’s like it was made for him.

  2. Calais was just fabulous in that video. Loved her chirps at you. I laughed, was impressed and said, “whoooops!” out loud when she slipped off. That girl is a clown!

    Khal, you’ve come a long way, baby! I think you made mama VERY happy!!!

    Hello, Newty-pa-tuttie!!!

  3. Of course, Calais MEANT to do that, silly humans.

    So happy that you and Khal are snuggle bunnies now!

  4. “Well I’m glad you’re having a good time” and then the fall off the counter, priceless!

  5. Khal is one handsome man, *swoon*. His little mini-me Kenny is pretty fabulous too. Too bad Khal would probably have no use for him or the other kittens.

  6. I LOVE that cat basket!! Can you tell me where you found it??
    I would take a MOOP in it as well 🙂

  7. ***
    My 3 Wishes:

    1) To be reincarnated as a 5-week-old Love-N-Hisses foster kitten whose sweet kitty mama was so. not. faking.
    2) To have an eternal Groundmog Day, wherein I stay a 5-week-old Love-N-Hisses foster kitten forever (dont worry, Miz Robyn, you scrubbed everything yesterdays)
    3) I sneak out and meet Jake and we play and he tells me all about a magical place where kittens never age and it’s called Brigaloon…

  8. Was wondering, Robyn, what was it that made sweet Stefan a permanent resident of the Anderson household considering the fact that he left and returned very quickly?

    Also, updates please on Oksana and Torvil, Katia and Christy.

  9. When I see pics of KennyBorkBorkMoop I can’t help but think of the Soot Sprites from the movie My Neighbour Totoro.

  10. I know that you can’t keep all of your fosters but it’s going to be so hard to let go of that Bork.

    Love, love that bird watching’ pic. Total glamour shot

  11. I love the (nick)name Moop. At Burning Man, litter is referred to as MOOP (matter out of place) but I’m happy to see that this Moop is put away nice and tidy.

  12. A Day Of Three Triumphs: Moop’s still in the Cat Basket, genius-level slapstick with the tumble off the shelf, and video evidence of the fearsome feral Khal Drogo now in touch with his inner lap-cat. Made me awww, made me snort with laughter, made me sigh in satisfaction. Thank you so much for terrific things today, Robyn!

  13. Calais and Arundel really do make the cutest pair. They seem to hang out a lot together, too. It would be great if they found their permanent home together. Although…a calico and a tortie…together…in one house. Not sure if there is a house sturdy enough to hold those two once they are full grown!

    Owner of a Calico (or is that “Slave of a Calico”?) =^..^=

  14. I’ll take one Moop and one Khal Drogo, please! I LOVE black kitties and I should. I have five.
