Arya is such a smug, smug, SMUG little thing.

Jon Snow looks like a wee charging bull.

And he’s always appalled when Arya kicks his butt.

Then it’s Brandon’s turn for the upper paw.

Oh, Hodor. You are such a PRETTY boy.
“Hodor,” he says modestly.

Staring off into space (or at the ceiling fan), thinking deep thoughts.
“Hodor,” he says thoughtfully.

Pretty, pretty, pretty.
“Hodor,” he says flirtatiously.

Brandon, with attitude.

Tusslin’ Starks.

Sleepy Puff.

And sleepy Scorch.

And sleepy Ruth (do we sense a theme with the Dragons?)

Puff is so pretty, with his light eyes against that dark fur. He also seems to have a wee touch of the loon about him.

Ember shows her brothers the right way to play with the track toy.

“Stand back, guys! I’m an expert at this!”

If there’s anything these kittens like almost as much as eating, it’s sniffing each others back ends.

On Fred’s desk Saturday, there was this.

That’s Scorch, in Sugarbutt’s arms, with Stefan looking on.

Lots and lots of Scorch-Suggie snuggling.

And then THIS happened.

YouTube link.

That would be Scorch, kneading on Sugarbutt’s belly and nuzzling around in his belly fur, while purring his little head off. Sugarbutt didn’t even wake up, and as you can see in the video, he even turned over a little to make his belly more available to Scorch. Now, Scorch never actually latched on to a nipple or anything, just nuzzled around and did some licking. I think if he’d actually latched on, there might have been a different reaction from Sugarbutt.

Sometimes, even though she prefers to be up high, Stinkerbelle has to hunt down her Tommy for some love.

But she always returns to her up-high place, so she can glare down at us in judgement.

  1. Jon Snow does look like a little bull in that photo, and Scorch has a most excellent purr. Glad you caught both of those moments — all the others, too!

  2. Gasp! Has Sugarbutt warmed up to a kitten? You need to adopt Scorch so there can be a blur of orange snuggles.

    Also, are we going to see some Dragons/Starks action soon?

    • I hope so – I’ve been wanting to get them together, but first Scorch felt poorly, and so I was worried that it was going to be something that would go through the litter (thankfully, it didn’t), and then Arya started sounding snuffly, so I had to wait to see if she was going to come down with something (she didn’t!), so I’m going to wait another day or two just to be safe, and then there should be some introductions. πŸ™‚

  3. I think Scorch wants to join that buff orange goodness πŸ™‚ I’ve always liked having multiple generations of black cats (mine are 14, 9, and 6 – I may be about due for a kitten!). You could do the same thing with the oranges!

  4. Oh, how adorable: Scorch on Suggie love! My Jack puts himself to sleep every night nuzzling on the side of my neck like that. He doesn’t use claws, and it’s actually kind of soothing to me as well, unless he starts drooling. πŸ™‚

  5. Oh Puff curled up looks so like my poor departed Llwyd, so special I miss him still, and then you cheered me up with all the Marmalade cat pics, 3 gingers in one shot! happy dance πŸ˜€

  6. In pic #4, I think Jon Snow and Brandon look like they are practicing for Dancing With the (Kitty) Stars. “No, your left paw goes on my shoulder and my right paw goes around your back to steer you.”

  7. Suggie, Scorch, and Stefan have a new favorite TV show: “Orange Is the New Black.”

  8. I know I say this every litter, but I don’t envy you for letting go of these babies.

    Norbert and Ember have always had my heart, but Ruth, when did she blossom into such a beauty?

    Still miss Hodor’s Heat-Miser hair, but he is a handsome gentleman. I don’t know how you dont’ scoop up those Snow’s constantly for kisses. Especially Jon and his ears of annoyance. BTW, is it me or are those paws looking pretty huge?

  9. I know it happened a few days ago, but I can’t get over how Puff went from an adorable puff-headed ball of fluff to a sleek, handsome man-cat.
