I love kittens that make me look like a good photographer

She was just sitting there looking at me. She tilted her head. I whipped out the Blackberry and got a few pictures just in time. Success!

Seven Names for Seven Kittens

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 …

Out of the nest… maybe

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…

Kittens in motion tend to stay in motion

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 …

The Magnificent Seven

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 …

A little early!

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 …

Random acts of cuteness

So, I’m sitting in front of my laptop when one of Maybelline’s kittens jumps up on the table, drapes herself over my arm, and goes right to sleep. Now, cuteness is easy to come by around our place, what with kittens running around. But sometimes a kitten just raises the bar on cuteness to levels …

We who are about to be the cute for the camera salute you

They eat, they grow, they play, and they love hanging out together on this chair. Well, usually all of them do but one of them wandered off before I could get a picture of the whole group. Anyway, here at last are the individual kitten pictures!  We have given them temporary names using the theme …

Ain’t we sweet?

Four of the six kittens have been reserved. Meanwhile, they just keep eating and growing, eating and growing. There must be connection. Oh yeah, and sometimes sleeping. If we look really cute for this picture will you let us go back to sleep?

I saw the light

The kittens are growing and just opening their eyes.  Even when they’re in their huddle they never really stop moving, but we managed to get a few pictures…
