This is Pippi, one of the girls from the Nutmeg-Syrano litter. She has joined the family as one of our breeding females (when she’s old enough and we’ve given her that talk about the birds and the bees, the sires and the dams, etc.). In the meantime, we get to enjoy the kitten cuteness.
She’s “Pippi” because her white markings on her front legs look like long stockings… Pippi Longstockings, get it? Well, one of the stockings is shorter than the other, so one of us suggested naming her Slouchy, but that was quickly vetoed.

Well we finally gave temporary names to the kittens. Since there are seven of them we named them after the seven dwarves (how original, eh)?
One thing you should know, though. Sneezy doesn’t actually sneeze, Grumpy isn’t actually grumpy, Doc doesn’t actually have a doctorate, and so on. Well, okay, Grumpy looks a little grumpy in his picture, but really he’s a playful, energetic little sweetie. They all are.
All of these kittens are reserved, but we have another litter due the last week in April!
Bashful (girl) reserved
Sneezy (girl) reserved
Doc (boy) reserved
Sleepy (girl) reserved
Grumpy (boy) reserved
Dopey (boy) reserved
Happy (girl) reserved

We opened the door to the nest today so the kittens could stretch their wobbly little legs.
They’re maybe a little tentative expanding their horizons beyond the next and into the kitten room. One brave little one decided to take the plunge.
Or maybe Mom has other ideas…

Okay, I tried taking some fresh kitten pictures tonight. I managed to get this one little lineup shot and then they all started to explore the bed. Sweet freedom away from Nutmeg’s nest was too tempting and they started stretching their legs and making mad dashes for the edge. Eeep!
That’s my long way of saying that I got a lot of blurry pictures of kittens in action, lost track of which kittens I’d taken pictures of, and generally muffed it up. Still, I got a few shots that are at least entertaining.
We’ll get some proper pictures up soon, I promise.
Are you lookin’ at me? Are YOU lookin’ at ME? You ARE?
Okay, cool. Just checking.
No, I will not look into the camera no matter how many things you dangle. The wall is far more interesting than you!
Oh, sure, take a picture of the moving kitten while I’m sitting back here all still and cute and forlorn-looking. Some great photographer you are.
To the edge! I will not be denied!

Here is the Nutmeg-Syrano litter in all their squirmy glory. Despite appearances to the contrary, they were pretty active while we took pictures, so I can’t say for sure if the pictures below represent seven different kittens or not. Probably not… Some were more cooperative than others.
Just starting to open their eyes!
I am kitten, hear me snore…
Oh yes, were posing for the camera now!
Did you want something? I’m busy napping.
High five! No? Maybe low five?

Nutmeg gave birth to her third litter a few days earlier than expected, but the delivery went fine. In fact, she squirted them out rapid fire, which was fine with us since she started around 1:00AM on Tuesday. We’ll have a talk with her about her timing when she’s a little less occupied with feeding the hungry horde.
In the meantime, her quick delivery has earned her the nickname, “Machine Gun Megs.”

Talisker went to his first cat show (in Providence) and he didn’t win anything, but nobody expects much of a 5-month old kitten in the ring when the older kittens are so much more developed. That said, he was very good in the ring and people really love his mackerel pattern.
On the first day Talisker was kind of wound up, but by the second day he’d gotten used to sacking out in his cage between rings.
