About The Brady Bunch (and Alice!)

The day after we handed Starsky & Hutch to their new mom, we were sitting down to lunch when the phone rang. Three hours later, we had in our possession three boys and three girls, who were determined to be about six weeks old. Since my favorite TV show ever is The Brady Bunch, the naming scheme was obvious to us.

I don’t know where they originally came from. The man who turned them over to me got them from his grandmother, who had them kind of dumped off on her by a family member.

They are sweet and very friendly kittens who will curl up in your lap for a snuggle, then race off to chase each other around the room.

You can read about The Brady Bunch beginning with this entry (there are links at the bottom of each entry; click on the one on the right to take you to the next one).

See all the pictures I’ve taken of these kittens over at Flickr.

Edited to add:

On December 18th, a small, semi-feral kitten showed up on our front porch. We tried coaxing, but although she was clearly hungry and needed food and shelter, she wouldn’t be sweet-talked into coming anywhere near us. Finally, we put out a trap and caught her pretty quickly.

Though she was wild the first night we got her, she calmed down after about a week, and once we knew she was disease-free, we added her to the Brady Bunch kittens, and named her Alice Nelson after the lovable, wacky housekeeper from The Brady Bunch.

What was most surprising to us was that although she was about the same size as Marcia (the largest of the Bradys) who was a little over two months old at the time, she turned out to be 6 months old. She’s probably not yet fully grown, but the vet thinks she probably won’t end up much over 6 pounds when all is said and done.

The Bradys went off to the adoption center, but Alice is staying with us for a little while longer.

The first post about Alice is here (there are links at the bottom of each entry; click on the one on the right to take you to the next one).

All pictures taken of Alice are lumped in with the Brady Bunch pictures at Flickr, here.

All the Bradys have been adopted!

(And on February 5, 2011, we adopted Alice ourselves. What can I say? She and Fred are in love, and I can’t possibly ask them to give each other up!)
