Auntie Katriane’s tail is the BEST toy.
Is it a box or a clown car?
10 years ago, we had a litter of 6 kittens who had eyelid agenesis (basically, their eyelids didn’t form), and they all needed surgery wherein the vet took pieces off the corners of their mouths to create eyelids. (The surgery went great!) We named the kittens after characters from True Blood (the series AND the books). One of those kittens was this one, Bill, whose sweet face you can see these days over at Instagram alongside his little brothers George and Red (who were our fosters Carlin and Skelton back in 2015 – they were two of the litter born to Lucille Ball, born on April Fool’s Day, and all named after comedians.) I’m sure I didn’t take this picture on a Thlurrrpsday, but it works well for that and for Throwback Thursday. (You can read about these kittens starting here, if you’re so inclined.)
This is another of the True Blood 6 litter, who all had eyelid agenesis. This is Terry, who I called Terry the Mouth more than once (he had a lot to say!) This is one of my all-time favorite pictures. OH, that boy. You can see Terry these days over at Instagram.
Back in 2014 we had a litter of kittens who weren’t all related to each other – most of them were orange or orange and white, so we called them the Cheez Doodles. I happened to capture this picture by accident – I was so buy looking at Gilbert in the tuna can bed, grabbing for Marshall’s tail, that I didn’t realize until later that I’d captured Blaster back there in mid-leap over an unsuspecting Grant. This is another of my all-time favorite pictures (yes, I’ve got a LOT of all-time favorite pictures!)
Oh, that Margeaux.
