Saturday morning was bath time for Moop, Calais and Millie. After they were bathed and were in the bathroom drying, I took the camera upstairs in hopes of getting a few pictures of Moop. The lighting in that bathroom is awful, however, and somehow I managed to set my camera on black and white, and I got this picture, wherein he looks like he’s in an old horror movie.

And then I got this, where he looks better but the walls appear to be a mustard color (they’re actually a grayish color).

(His little TEETH.)

Then I gave up and put the three bathed kittens back in the foster room.

“She tried to give me a BATH, but I was all POW-POW-POW YOU AIN’T GONNA BATHE ME, LADY!”

“I bet I could POW-POW-POW her too!”
“You totally could!”

Millie and Dexter gave me the Eyes of Judgement.

Kittens (in this case, Otis, Arundel and Eliot) gathered.

They posed (Otis, Arundel and Buxton).

Knowing I’d never get a shot of all 9 kittens, I tried to be happy with getting a picture of 6 of them.

“All 9 of us in one picture is a good dream to have, lady, but don’t hold your breath.”


9 little kittens, all in a row!

And again, this time with all their little faces showing!

And one more time!

Mission accomplished!


Jake’s all “That’s right, I’m fabulous. Haters gonna hate.”

  1. I don’t know which I like better, Jake or all nine kittens!!! Magic must be in the air – or a lot of luck!

  2. Wow – congratulations on photographing all nine. What a bunch of cuties!

  3. Amazing family (school?) pictures!!! Bright little eyes, cute little ears, squee!

    Haha, Jake! What a fabulous picture, strutting between the wheelbarrow handles like he planned it!

  4. I thought my day was made when I saw all nine kitties posing nicely for you and then BAM! you hit me with the bonus good feels for the day with Jakey strutting his stuff. That look on his face is priceless!

    • Handsome gray cat walkin’ on a wall
      Like I ain’t got any cares at all
      I’m a kept cat and I don’t care
      I strut right by with my tail in the air

      …my earworm for the day is chosen. Thanks.

  5. Seeing all nine of them in one picture really brings home what a monumental job it is to do the frequent bathing. You are a ROCKSTAR, Robyn!

  6. Nine kittens! 18 little pointy ears, 18 bright eyes, must be 2018. Also, 162 needle-like claws. Evidence of which I’m sure your hands and sweaters can provide.
