Leapin’ kitties!

Dexter is watchin’ you, innernets.

Hooray, hooray, Buxton has been adopted and is heading to a wonderful home right now! Happy life, sweet boy!

Kitten baths.

Good night, innernets, from Arundel & Eliot.

Dexter wonders “How YOU doin’?”

Fabulously floofy toeses.

Gorgeous Millie.

Sweet floofy Dexter.

She looks very serious here (“Yes, you MUST love cats!”), but rest assured that Eliot is a total little love bug.

Arundel stands 100% behind this sentiment!

When one waves a feather teaser to get kittens to look toward the camera, one risks the possibility that one of those kittens will figure out that if she leaps up onto the human, she’ll be closer to the teaser. I wish I’d realized she was going to make this leap so I could’ve captured it better, but this blurry picture still makes me laugh. That Bethel is just too smart.

Hurray, hurray, Otis went home today! He has two new sisters, Clementine and Trudy, who were cared for by another Forgotten Felines foster family. Happy life, sweet boy!

Napping with kittens.

A Millie and her toy made from dog fur.

That’s a lot of floof for one little cat tree.

What would you get if you took a very nosy solid gray kitten and smashed her down on top of an equally nosy solid white kitten? You’d get Eliot, the world’s nosiest girl, who is responsible for investigating all noises and reporting her findings while snuggling up for a nap.

Sleeping in.

It was easier to get 9 kittens lined up and posing than it is to get 4! Of course, they were younger and more awed by the feather teaser back then.

Hurray hurray, Bethel has been adopted and is on her way home! She’ll have a big kitty brother named Charlie and will be very very loved. Happy life, sweet girl!

Went to check on the kittens at PetSmart this morning (which I usually avoid doing because I usually just want to bring them all back home with me) and they were fine. They raced around and played, came over for some snuggles, and then put themselves back in their cage. Fingers crossed that there are lots and lots of adoptions! (They’re at Jones Valley Petsmart here in Huntsville, Alabama.)

Hurray, hurray, Dexter and Millie have been adopted – TOGETHER! – and are headed home! We understand that they will be spoiled rotten (and hopefully we’ll get updates!) ❤️ Happy life, sweet babies!!

  1. All these adoptions, fabulous news for these guys, it really makes my day to read about that! I just know that extra special humans are just around the corner for all of them.

    Oh, and it never fails to crack me up when I see all the toys and cat trees in every corner of your house.

  2. Was wondering how you control litter all over the house when it sticks to the paws. I have a new furbaby and I don’t remember it sticking so bad to the paws . My Winnie has litter all over just from it sticking to her paws. Is there any litter out there that would solve this problem ? I figured your the best expert I can go to for advice. Hugs

  3. Awww, going to miss all the babies.

    Dammit, though, Torvill and Oksana need homes. I wonder if they need name changes too, like Mrs. Potts did?

  4. I am relieved Bethel and Dexter have been adopted. I thought I was going to have to pack up and move close to you so I could adopt them.

  5. YAY for all the adoptions that happened over the weekend!! Hopefully all the remaining adoptees (particularly the returned fosters and “boot camp” kitties) will be able to go to their forever homes very soon as well.

    Which begs the question… when is the next batch of kittens (or mom(s) plus kittens-to-be?) going to arrive at Shady Cove?

  6. So very happy for all the adopters and their new families! Now it’s your turn, Arundel and Eliot! And I agree with Dana (above): it’s time for magic to happen for all the other Shady Cove (and Crooked Acres) alumni currently in temporary gigs to find their forever homes, too!
