Monster Kittens Destroy Tokyo!

Every litter of kittens has milestones for which we watch. Walking. Eating solid food. Climbing on the chair. Pooping IN the litter box. Stuff like that. Fiona’s kittens are progressing  very well, indeed. The pooping OUTSIDE the box phase was amazingly short, and they seemed go from walking to climbing very quickly. They’ve also taken …

Little Monsters

Fiona gave birth to four huge kittens today! What they lack in quantity they make up for in sheer mass.  Mother and kids are doing well. More pictures and updates to come! Update 10/2/17: Unfortunately we lost one of the kittens last night. One of them wasn’t gaining weight as fast as the others and …

Twice as good

Fiona will give birth to four kittens next week! The first time that Fiona and Buster mated in 2016 they only had two kittens (Yin and Yang). We were worried that either Fiona was winding down her time as a mom or Buster’s swimmers weren’t working. However, it was his first time so maybe he …

Like little pooping stars in the sky

When Starry Night gave birth to a big litter of kittens it reminded us of a constellation (because she’s a star and now there are a lot of stars and… oh, never mind). Anyway, we decided to name the kittens after constellations (and being us we had to pick mostly obscure ones). The kittens are …

Eureka!

Thanks to Marikoons Maine Coons for allowing this beautiful girl Eureka to join our household. Eureka will spend some exciting weekends on the cat show circuit (alongside Lola and Diggy) until she’s old enough to make babies. As you can see from the pictures below Eureka is still full of kitten energy. She is super-outgoing, …

The Eclipse litter has their day in the sun

Update: Umbra is a girl! What did the sun say when the moon leaned in for a kiss? Eeek! Lips!! That will also be Marie’s reaction to me for the rest of the week now that I’ve made that joke. Because Nikki and Starry had their litter’s so close together people putting down deposits are …

Alexis is available!

Update: Alexis has gone to her forever home! Every once in a while a kitten needs a few more weeks with us to become properly socialized. Maybe they were lowest kitten on the totem pole and once the other kittens are gone they blossom. That’s our Alexis! Now that all of Georgette and Jackie’s kittens …

Her name was Lola…

…she was a show cat. Or she will be, anyway (and mother to future kittens!). Thanks to GGLegacy Maine Coon Cattery for allowing us to add Lola to our home!  She is a lovely and outgoing girl who is very active, purrs like crazy, and has a chirp that sounds like a squeaky toy. It …

The mouth that moves

The kittens keep growing! Nikki’s kids are getting mobile and have started trying to explore outside the nest (though you wouldn’t know it from the picture below). We’ve adjusted things so they can’t get out of nest just yet (it’s a little too soon) but before we know it they’ll be scampering around like crazy. …

A constellation of kittens

Starry Night gave birth to eight beautiful kittens today!  We were only expecting six or seven so #8 was a welcome surprise. The kittens are doing great, though the sound of eight simultaneous sucklers might keep us awake tonight. Starry is naturally protective of her kids but welcomes a chin rub or any opportunity to …
