We had joy, we had fun, we had kittens in the sun

Yin and Yang have grown quite a bit after eight weeks and are adjusting well to being with the adult cats. They are hungry little fuzzballs and will push the bigger cats aside when the wet food comes out. In the morning they play and run around but in the afternoon all of the cats seem to take a siesta, and the kittens are no exception. That said, they looked so cute sleeping together that I couldn’t resist waking them up for a picture:

Thanks for waking us from our nap.

Both of these kittens are reserved.

Oh, the just decided to get up and have a snack at the same time as their mother, Fiona:

Nutrition in, nutrition out.

Future Mothers of Kittens

We’d like to introduce you to two lovely ladies who we expect will produce some beautiful kittens.

First up is Darling Nikki, from our Prince litter. She is replacing her mother, Ashley, who is retiring. She definitely inherited Ashley’s playful personality, as well as her tendency to wave her paws at far-away things, as if to bring them closer.

Starry Night comes to us from our friends at Marikoons on Groton, CT. She is a very friendly lady who entertains us with a wide variety of noises. She chirps, she squeaks, she trills. Sometimes she even meows!

Both of these girls aren’t old enough to be interested in boys yet, but we expect they they’ll be old enough in the spring or early summer 2017!

Yin and Yang

Fiona’s kittens are growing fast! This morning when we saw them laying together like this we just had to naame them Yin and Yang. I think this is the earliest we’ve ever named a litter.

Okay, it’s not literally a Yin and Yang symbol, since they aren’t nose to tail. Technically they’re reverse spooning, but who wants to name a kitten after a utensil? We’ll stick with Yin (the boy on the left) and Yang (the the girl on the right).

Update: Both of these kittens are reserved.

All together now... "Awwwwwwwwwwwww!"

That was easy

Fiona gave birth to two kittens yesterday afternoon, about fifteen minutes apart. We were afraid that with a small litter they get too big to squeeze out of the opening without trouble, but Fiona popped them out like a pro.

They are both eating like champs and are very squeaky when mom leaves the nest. More pictures when Fiona isn’t hovering over them and getting in the way of the camera!

Awwwwww

Awwwwww

Sometimes it’s easy

Two!

Two!

Usually when we look at the x-ray of an expectant mother it’s a challenge to figure out exactly how many kittens to expect. You try to count the skulls or the spines, but with a bunch of kittens crammed in there it’s hard to be absolutely sure.

But sometimes you look at an x-ray and it’s pretty easy. So, yes, Fiona is expecting two kittens later this week!

Ashley is available!

After a difficult delivery left Ashley with a single uterine horn, we decided to spay and retire her. She is a beautiful, playful 3-year old girl who has never gotten it into her head that she isn’t a kitten anymore. That said, she wants to be alpha female, so she would be best placed in a home on her own or with a very laid-back male.

If you are interested in adopting Ashley, please fill out a placement application.

Smart kittens

Jackie Blue’s kittens took to solid food quickly and mastered the litter box in record time. These are some very smart kittens! So, we decided to name them after inventors and scientists. Here they are!

All of these kittens are reserved.

It’s always lunch time

Jackie Blue’s kittens are growing nicely, no doubt due to their well-developed appetites. When do they eat? Pretty much whenever they want. Jackie will jump out of the nest and hang out with us, but after a while she’ll hear a chorus of “meeps!” and she’s back with the kittens. I imagine that “meep” translates to something like Oliver Twist saying, “Please, may I have some more?”

Would you like the (Jackie) Blue Plate Special?

Three points for Gryffindor

We decided to name Pippi’s kittens after characters in Harry Potter because someone picked up their kitten recently and was naming their kitten based on that. Why didn’t we think of that?

All of these kittens are reserved. And yes, we are having a hard time telling Harry and Ron apart. Today Harry is a little chunkier, but that can change. We’ll figure it out. We may just have to wait and see what kind of Patronus they can each produce.

(For those who didn’t get that, it’s a Harry Potter joke, not some weird anatomical thing. Just ignore it and look at the kitten pictures).

Jelia Jamb is available (again)

Update: Jelia has found a new home and is no longer available!

Well, we thought Jelia was spoken for, but the folks who said they wanted her seem to have fallen off the end of the Earth. That means she’s available again!

Jelia is a fun girl who likes romantic dinners, sunset walks on the beach, and.. oh, sorry. I mixed that up with something else.

Jelia is a fun girl who likes to play, but when playtime is done wants to hang out and sleep next to her people. Are those people you? If you are interested please fill out a placement application.

I'm chill.

I’m chill.

Show you my good side? All my sides are good.
