Aramis & Rochefort chasing their tails. The very best toy is always so close…
In case you missed it on the blog this morning, we have an ADOPTION PENDING on lil punkin Athos! He’ll be going home in a couple of weeks (his new family will be out of town for a little while and don’t want to bring him home and then board him. I am heartbroken (NOT) that I get to enjoy him for a few more weeks!) He’s joining a young orange tabby boy who needs a friend and an older calico who wants her little brother to have a friend and leave her alone (that seems to be a theme for this litter!)
This leaves d’Artagnan, Porthos and Aramis still available for adoption; we’re waiting for Constance to get a liiiiiittle bit bigger before she can be spayed so she and Rochefort can head home.
7 (!) years ago this adorable black and white tuxie we named Norbert (and immediately never called anything but Norbie) went home to Chicago (Yes, Kirsten drove down here from Chicago specifically to adopt him!) I cannot believe it’s been 7 years, but somehow it has. And our boy has grown to be BEAUTIFUL. Happy Gotcha Day, Norbs! (And thanks, Kirsten!)
That Constance is such a pretty girl (getting a kitten to look at herself on the phone is not the easiest thing to do.)
I was talking to Aramis about how cute he is when Rochefort had to get involved.
Porthos is ready to take flight… right into your heart. (He is available for adoption. Email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to inquire.) (FYI: right after I took this picture, I squooshed him and kissed him a million times.)
Uncle Archie in the taco truck. The kittens (especially Rochefort) are all “?!?!?!”
We have here housepanther Flynn (who was our foster Kohle for about a month at the end of 2012). We also have gray and white tuxie Hook (who was our foster Puff – son of Khaleesi – in mid 2013.) When Selena adopted Hook and brought him home, he and Flynn became pretty much immediate best friends. 7 years later they still love each other a whole lot. I love when that happens. ❤️ (Thanks, Selena!)
Rochefort’s got the feather teaser again – and he’s NOT sharing.
Bathing Porthos, as illustrated by Constance: first we wash his face and ears, and then we rip his throat out.
As we continue our Thursday stroll down memory lane, say hi to fosters #58-63: Deuce, Jesikat, Malley, Peyton, Rhian & Spooky; they were named after guests and forum posters from the podcast Keith and the Girl. We fostered them for about a month near the end of 2007. They came from a farm in Tennessee, and I have no idea if any of them were related to any of the others. They were a skittish bunch when we first got them, but they warmed up nicely and turned into lapcats. They all went to Petsmart around the end of November and were all adopted.
Former fosters Lindsay (back), Lucille (left) and Maeby, who we fostered in March 2008 and called collectively “The Bluths” (named after characters from the TV show Arrested Development). All girls, all orange tabbies. They were only with us for a couple of weeks while we waited for room to open up at Petsmart. They were varying shades of friendly when we first got them, and by the time they went off to Petsmart they were snuggly lovebugs. They were adopted out separately.v
Aramis is very good at entertaining himself. He’s got a tag (that fell out of the trash), a tail… and a hop.
Aramis, Rochefort, Athos and d’Artagnan are having a hard time getting going this morning.
Hello from Phoenix (daughter of Mercury, fostered in 2017) and Amber (formerly Ambercup, one of our bottle babies from the Squash Bugs litter in 2015)! I don’t know about y’all, but I feel a tiny bit judged right now. (Thanks, Debra!)
Aramis is such a little goofball.
Constance & d’Artagnan have a tussle. I love the way his ears go flat and his eyes go dark when he’s watching her and waiting for her to pounce!
Constance is such a silly little muffin.
Rochefort has an opinion, and his opinion is that, yes – he is, indeed, Da BAYbee. Still.
2019: Watch the ATTITUDE, little man.
2018: As it turns out? Ryder’s a fan of the ‘nip.
2017: Yep, they’re still bellying up to the milk bar frequently, though Mercury doesn’t let them nurse for long.
2016: “::sigh:: THESE idiots,” says Darry.
2015: No entry.
2014: “Hallo? Hallo? Has I reached the internets? Internets, is that you? I needs more snacks, please. Bring snacks for my mouf. Anyone? Siri GIVE ME SNACKS. Snacks? Oh, I think this stupid thing not work right.”
2013: Silvio says: “KERRY, I KNOW! SHE IS TOTALLY NOT GIVING ME NEARLY ENOUGH ATTENTION, IS SHE?!”
2012: Magoo is all “This is MY grocery bag to bite! You keep away!”
2011: “No, no, NO! You must BELIEVE that you can flyyyyyyyyyyy! Like THIS!”
2010: “I need to stay here and help you make jam, lady!”
2009: No entry.
2008: No entry.
2007: I am the meanest Momma in all the world.
2006: So Fred, he’s not only a handyman, he’s also a cat-feeding genius, that’s right.
2005: Best. Picture. EVER.
