Look who it is!

Do you recognize them?

How about now?

That’s Leia and Buttercup, in their new home!

Gorgeous girl.

Snuggly girls.

Buttercup loves her catnip bed.

Leia and Buttercup were adopted by two brothers, and Mickey sent me these pictures of the girls. He reports that they’re doing really well – as soon as they brought them home, the girls started running around like the wild things they are. They’ve settled in and there’s plenty of napping, playing, and they’re very interested in watching TV. It sounds like things are going great!

Thanks again for the update and pictures, Mickey! It’s so nice to see their sweet faces again.

Arya had a sleepy, quiet day yesterday, recovering from her spay surgery.


Norbie did NOT have a quiet, sleepy day yesterday, but he was sweet with the sleepy, quiet Starks. He kept Hodor company for a good part of the day, curled up in the same cat bed. He’s such a good boy.

“Yes, I am!”

Tommy, hanging out in the foster room. Brandon thinks Tommy is pretty amazing.

:::POKE::: said Brandon.

:::SNIFF::: said Jon Snow.

:::HODOR::: said Hodor.

Something about Tommy’s tail is just amazing to these kittens.

“HEY, MISTER!” said Jon Snow.

::SMACK:: said Jon Snow.

“I AM THE BOSS OF YOU,” said Jon Snow.

“I am… the boss….”

“You think I can’t break your paw without half trying?” said Tommy. “You wanna watch what you do with that tiny paw, little man.”

Hodor couldn’t help himself…

And it seems that Tommy had had JUST ABOUT ENOUGH.

“Hodor,” said Hodor, making a mental note to hodor hodor hodor hodor.

Jon Snow screamed, sounding very much like a 10 year-old human girl seeing a spider on her pillow.

And then he realized Brandon was right behind him… and that he was going to be hearing about that panicked scream for the rest. Of. His. Life.

“Hey Mister, could you make him scream like that that again? That was funny!”

Videos! In the first one, Jon Snow is a wild thing (but not a wildling!)

And in the second one, Arya makes sure that Norbie stays clean.

  1. Yay Leia and Buttercup!! And when did Leia get that floof?

    Tommy is such a good big uncle to the babies, even if he did make Jon Snow scream like a girl!


  2. Well, it’s certainly good to see that Leia is turning out to be the Princess I always knew she would become! Gorgeous girl & so glad Buttercup got to stay with her. Congrats to the new owners.

    In that pix with Tommy about to put the smackdown on Hodor, it’s amazing to see Hodor looking like he’s about to be gobbled up! Ha. And the screaming like a 10-year-old girl, my little chipin girl does that when Rambo (the oldest/largest dog of 3) bothers her. She knows I’ll reprimand Rambo, even though she, Muffin, started the play time! 🙂

  3. Uhhh, Robyn… I think Crooked Acres just gained another permanent resident. I think what you’re actually seeing in that picture of Tommy and Jon Snow with their paws raised is the super secret Crooked Acres swearing in ceremony with Tommy administering the oath to Jon Snow… “Repeat after me… I, (state your name) Jon Snow do solemnly swear to ……” LOL! That wouldn’t be a bad thing, right?

    • Jon Snow is taking the black!

      “I am the sword in the darkness, I am the watcher on the walls…”

  4. Yay for Leia and Buttercup – they look so happy in their forever home!

    And the Tomster is the best big uncle a kitten could have – I adore him!

  5. Seeing Uncle Tommy interacting with the young ‘uns cracks me up. He’s so patient with them, I would be picking him up and smooching him for being such a good uncle!

    LOL, Jon Snow screaming like a 10-year old girl – hilarious!

  6. Oh wow, SO GREAT to see Leia and Buttercup in their new home!!!

    The paw action in this post is intense! 🙂

  7. Oh, ambassador Tommy, the things you put up with in the name of good cat/kitten relations!

    Love the video of Jon Snow running around like a crazy little monkey. Those kittens sure can zoom!

  8. Arya and Norbie sitting in a (cat) tree,

    Can you imagine how pretty their babies would’ve been? Maybe in another life.

    Y’know, is there ANYBODY who doesn’t love Tommy? The kittens, the permanent residents, Us, You and Fred. Can’t think of anyone.

    So glad to see Leia and Buttercup in their new home. They are such gorgeous girlies, I hope that they have a happy, happy ending.

  9. Clearly you have nothing better to do than make random banners….

    I do get a huge kick looking at the new banners. After seeing the latest “Yawners” I’m seeing a whole new theme, not necessarily tied to any one particular batch of kittens. I can see the best of “Stranger Danger Floof Suits”, “Bug Eyed Kittens in the middle of the circular ball racer”, “Bottle babies” “Alien kittens (I’m thinking Tony RH standing with that huge belly)” “Basket kittens”, you get the idea.

    Seriously, I am amazed at the time and effort you put into this website.

  10. Yay for Leia and Buttercup! I am so happy for them. They are beyond cute!

    And Tommy is so patient with the tiny terrors!

  11. “Jon Snow screamed, sounding very much like a 10 year-old human girl seeing a spider on her pillow.”

    …or a 50-year-old human woman seeing a spider on her pillow!
