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

Jelia Jamb (l) and Billina (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).

Seven-Part Harmony

Georgette’s seven little monsters are doing wonderfully. Their eyes are open and they continue to show off their vocal skills by singing in seven-part harmony whenever Georgie leaves the nest. Well, calling it harmony may be exaggerating. Come to think of it, it’s not exactly singing, either.

After about a week Georgette caused a little drama by trying to move them out of the nest, but upgrading her to the super-deluxe kitten pen a week early solved that problem. (Technically, it’s sold as a puppy pen, but when you raise Maine Coons you end up buying dog-sized stuff most of the time).

Here’s looking at you!

All of these kittens are reserved.

We’re gonna party like it’s 1999

Well maybe not. In 1999 we only had two cats. Well, Marie had two cats, I had no cats. What fun is that?

Ashley’s kittens are walking around, exploring, and generally looking cute (like that is hard). Like the Bowie litter before them we decided that this would be the Prince litter! Ugh, our music icons can stop dying, already.

If the names don’t match up with the genders exactly, they kind of match the colors. And hey, we resisted the temptation to name the dark boy “Batdance.”

Noisemakers

There's seven there, really.

There’s seven there, really.

Georgette gave birth to seven very noisy kittens on Sunday morning (starting around 9:00AM and finishing up at 1:00PM… she took her time). All of the kittens have healthy appetites and really healthy lungs. There are times we question the wisdom of keeping the kitten nest in the bedroom. Like when we want to sleep.

As you can see, Georgette is very protective of her kids but we’ve submitted a petition to her highness and expect approval to take more pictures within a few days.

Al of these kittens are reserved.

Looks crowded in there

Georgette is due to give birth in the next few days. She’s waddling around like she swallowed a basketball and now we know why. It looks like there are seven, maybe eight kittens in there. We’ll know for sure pretty soon!

"Let us out of here!"

A little early, but just as cute

Ashley gave birth to four beautiful kittens on Sunday afternoon, a few days earlier than expected.  Unfortunately she had to have surgery to take out the last two that didn’t survive. One of the horns of her uterus was damaged and had to be removed. Or, as the vet said, Ashley is now a “Unihorn.”

The new kittens are doing fine and Ashley is recovering well.

Four!

All four of these kittens are reserved.

Meeting in the middle… of her belly!

One of us looked at Ashley’s big belly and said, “I predict there are seven kittens in there.” The other said, “Oh, I think there are five.”

Of course, that means there are six! Pictures of actual kittens and not just kitten skeletons next week when they pop out!

Four of these kittens are reserved.

Count the skulls and/or spines!

One kitten, many names

We gave Hipster his temporary name because of his little chin beard. However, we rarely call any cat by their actual name, just to jeep it confusing for ourselves. Therefore, as Hipster began exploring his room he became Magellan… and then Gellin’ Like Magellan… and then Melon… and then Melonhead.

Yeah, we’re really mature around here.

Anyway, here are more pictures!  Oh, and this boy is reserved, of course.

What is that I see on the horizon?
