But wait, there’s more!

We found out for sure today that we have more kittens available! Back in January we fixed Talisker and Patootie together for a date but they didn’t seem to get along.  Toots didn’t seem interested but we left them together for the day in case she changed her mind.  We never did hear any of …

More pictures of the Champagne litter

We tried to get some good pictures, really! The kittens and Nutmeg had other ideas. For example, in the picture above that big blurry thing is Meg’s tail — but it’s the only picture with all four kittens even remotely standing still, so there it is! One out of two kittens not moving… I’ll take …

Count the kittens!

Normally when our vet x-rays an expectant mother she can give us a definitive count of how many kittens to expect.  But things are so crowded inside Nutmeg that all she’ll commit to is “five to seven.”  Looking at this, I can’t say I blame her. As usual, the dark stuff is just poop.

The “Occupy Couch” Movement

We’ve let the kittens out of the nursery and into the main part of the house so they can learn to socialize with other cats (and get more time with us, naturally). Needless to say, they are making themselves at home… Abigail Tipper has found her place in the sun. Jackie-O Bess is in Feisty …

Faster than a speeding sleigh

We were taking pictures of the kittens for this year’s Christmas card, and briefly considered using this sequence.  Cooler heads prevailed, but here it is for your enjoyment. Yeah, posing kittens is easy.

Well, the kittens are still a little young to be very cooperative when we take pictures (they want to look at everything except the camera) but we stuck to it and are proud to present the First Lady Litter…. Bess (Truman) Δ Abigail (Adams) Δ Ladybird (Johnson) Δ Tipper (Gore — should have been First …
