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.

Hello… world…

Jackie gave birth to five beautiful kittens on Friday night! Also, Saturday morning, technically. She takes about an hour between kittens, just long enough to make you worry that something might be wrong… But, oh, wait, she’s pushing again and here’s another one!

All of the kittens are doing well and are very, very noisy.

Five noisy kittens!

All of these kittens are reserved.

Meanwhile, in a nearby uterus

Jackie is due to give birth in about a week, and the X-ray reveals five (maybe six) little kitten skeletons in there. Onyx is the lucky dad. He is getting ready to pass out the catnip cigars, though I think he couldn’t help but “test one out” for “quality control.”

One potato, two potato, three

Those of you who follow our Facebook page may have seen that one of Pippi’s torbie kittens wasn’t doing well and we were doing our best to keep her going. Unfortunately she passed away on Monday. Today we lost one of the red boys, as well. He was nursing but never gained weight like the others, even when we supplemented his diet with formula. We know this happens sometimes but it doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking.

Meanwhile, the remaining three kittens are growing like crazy and are rapidly entering what we call “mobile potato” stage. They are very active, which makes it hard to take pictures, but we managed to get in a few shots,

All of these kittens are reserved.

Bedtime kittens

We were pretty tired last night so we decided to turn in early. Just as we were about to settle in Pippi went into labor. So much for that idea! Luckily, she is a real pro and ejected six kittens like clockwork at 20-minute intervals. Sadly, the last one was stillborn.

This morning the kittens and Pippi are doing great. They are very squeaky and Pippi growls every time she hears a noise from another room. It was squeak, growl, squeal, growl all night. So yes, we’ll be drinking lots of coffee today.

However, Pippi did allow us to get some pictures this morning!

Here was are!

Here we are!

Actually available

Update: Raspberry Beret has gone to his new home!

Another update: Jelia Jamb is no longer available.

Yet another update: Billina has gone to her new home!

Things change.  People change their minds, have a family emergency, or don’t find the color kitten they’ve got their heart set on and decide to wait for another litter. That means that some kittens we previously listed as reserved are now available.  They are:

Raspberry Beret (boy)

Billina (l) and Jelia Jamb (r) - girls

They are all very active and friendly. If you are interested please fill out a placement application. Thanks!

Big as a house… full of kittens

Pippi and Onyx are expecting their first litter together late next week. Onyx is pacing around like a worried father. Okay, really, he’s not. He’s pacing around wondering when we’re going to let him woo another girl. Pippi, meanwhile, is getting bigger all the time. We were thinking that she must have eight kittens in there, but the X-Ray shows definitely five, maybe six:

Kittens and poop!

Just for some perspective, here is a picture of Pippi from a few weeks ago showing off how wide she’s gotten!

I like big cats and I cannot lie...

We’re off to see the Wizard…

Georgette’s kittens are getting cuter by the day, especially since they’ve mastered the litter box. It was touch and go there for a while, but nothing helps your cuteness quotient like not pooping on the floor. It’s a phase kittens go through, but we’re glad it’s over!

So, although we were considering names like, “Poopypants” and “Stinky” we decided on an Oz Book theme instead. The movie is one thing, but you can’t beat the original books for sheer weirdness (and since we’re weird and raise cats so it all fits! Right? Right!).

Anyway, here are the little munchkins! (All of these kittens are reserved).
