Nikki and Buster’s kids (the Mister Rogers litter) all turned out to be girls! Last year Buster sired boys by a wide margin, so I guess this evens things out a bit. On the downside, we didn’t get to name a kitten Mister McFeely. On the other hand, any day that you can name a grumpy-looking kitten “Anna Platypus” is a good day.
Speaking of grumpy-looking kittens, that’s just the luck of the photo shoot. We take a lot of pictures but the kids are super-mobile and not used to sitting in one place. Sometimes the only head-forward, tongue-not-out, non-blurry picture is the one where a kitten looks grumpy, surprised, or weird. In person they are curious little meepers who will climb up your leg given half a chance.
Five of these kittens are reserved.
