Archie got scratches on his nose? Who’s he been messing with?
I think those are old scratches that have mostly healed – he was pretty scratched up when he first showed up here. He and Stefan do not like each other at all (except when they do), but I have never actually seen them make contact; usually they do nothing but arch their backs at each other and make ungodly growling noises.
Was that Zuke who did the floop-and-roll at the beginning of the “Fight Club” video?
It is! He’s such a little nut.
I saw this article today about a cat street view web site in Japan. The actual web site would be far cooler if I could read Japanese…
That is so neat!
Isn’t that about the sweetest thing ever?

You made it to Buzzfeed again. See #20.
Woohoo! I’m pretty sure that clip of Rickles is going to show up every so often for the rest of my life.
If you haven’t already seen this, this is a bad dumping story with a happy ending:
Supposedly they found a family with two little girls that same day who lost it over their catch. So they went home with them.
That is so awesome. Those poor babies! The guys who rescued the kittens have a Facebook page here, too.
2009 has a great baby loon face.
That boy cracks. Me. UP.
There’s a little chain hanging from the top of that scratching post (it’s meant to hold a dangly toy, but the kittens always take it down in about 10 seconds, and at this point I don’t even know where the toy has gone) and it drives Calabash crayzeeeeeeee.
Torres, I think. That little piece of faux fur was on a ball hanging from the little kitty tree/condo, and some kittens – I think Lucy’s Fools – took down the ball and skinned it. I don’t know where the inside of the ball has gone, but they think that little piece of “fur” is the Best. Toy. EVER.
(Kittens are destructive and inventive, is what I’m saying.)
Zuke on the windowsill. They’ve been climbing up the scratching post and checking out the windowsill pretty frequently lately. I think we need to get something in there so they can do some real climbing!
What a difference a week makes – this is from one week ago. They no longer feel the need to actually sit on the plate (that’s Spitz in the picture), and we’re almost getting to the point where I don’t need to line the floor with washable pads before I put their snack plates down. ALMOST, I say.
Video! Calabash was in my lap sleeping, and Spitz and Torres had to get in on the action. The way Torres gets SO excited at the beginning that she hugs Calabash’s head cracks me UP.
When we lost Tommy, we were worried about Stinkerbelle, but didn’t even think to worry about Jake. As it turns out, Stinkerbelle is handling Tommy’s absence okay, but Jake has been looking for comfort from the other cats. Some of them want nothing to do with him – he can be kind of overwhelming when he wants love from them – but Dennis has been really good.
