Auntie Katriane’s tail is the BEST toy.

Good night innernets. (Luc & Beauregard)

I didn’t realize when I snapped this picture that Luc and Beauregard were in the background (Josephine in the front), and it cracks me up.

Somehow, these little muffin heads are 6 weeks old today!

Truth in advertising. (Fleur & Luc)

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!)

That’s right, it IS Thlurrrpsday, and Gabrielle is observing it correctly.

Continuing our observance of Thlurrrpsday, here’s Henri showing off that fabulous tongue curl.

Lest you think that only kittens know how to properly observe Thlurrrpsday, Katriane is here to show you that she knows what she’s doing.

Oh, that Margeaux.

Rounding out this Thlurrrpsday, please admire Margeaux’s perfect form. That curl! That wink! The girl’s got it going on.

Good night innernets. (Luc)

“Children, the lady is being weird again, see?” (Katriane, Henri, Josephine & Luc)

Beauregard has discovered the Fancy Sofa, but wonders “Is it too fancy for the likes of me?” (It’s not. The Fancy Sofa is for ALL kittens.)

Josephine and Henri stop mid-tussle to have a think.

Henri is such a cutie.

Good night innernets. (Gabrielle)

Silly Fleur.

Let’s start this Caturday off with some Downward Facing Cat, shall we? Gabrielle shows off her kitten yoga skills.

“Innernets, I see you! Hi!” (Beauregard)

This scratcher appears to have turned into the Weird Lady Observation Platform. (Fleur & Beauregard)

“Stop taking our picture and hand over the treats, lady!” Have I mentioned that Katriane (standing) and Margeaux are big fans of their treats?

OH that spotted belly. OH those faces! (Luc and Beauregard)

Good night innernets. (Beauregard)
