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 …

Total eclipse of the heart

Ha, now you have that song in your head! Darling Nikki gave birth to five kittens today, her first litter! They were expected the day of the eclipse and we’re going to stick with that theme even though it’s a day later. Close enough! Buster, the father, noting that all of the kittens are black …

Kitten Supernova

Like the hot gasses of an exploding star, six or seven kittens will burst forth from the fiery uterus of Starry Night in about a week. Okay, we hope for a much more relaxing delivery than a supernova, but it’s Starry’s first litter so we’re a little excited. Buster, the father, got similar news about …

First time’s the charm

In a week or so Nikki will give birth to five or six kittens! This is her first litter (and sometimes those are small) so we’re very happy! Buster, the father, was pleased. “Great!” he meowed. “That means Nikki and I get to mate again next year!” “That’s right, oh Buster-of-the-One-Track-Mind!” “I resent that characterization,” …

Something is fascinating out there

Mornings with kittens. Sometimes you’re trying to keep their faces out of your coffee mug, and sometimes they just overwhelm you with cuteness.

Will you accept this rose?

Jackie’s kittens were born during an episode of The Bachelorette, so it was only fitting that we name these kittens after some of our favorites from the Bachelor / Bachelorette family of shows. The kittens are doing great, climbing over everything, and have just entered what our fellow breeders call “poop week.” That’s when they’ve …
