Group Shots Galore of the Patmore Four!!

A trip back through the Patmore photo archives revealed that I have many images of these four all together. A picture of a single Patmore, or even pairs, were few and far between!

This morning I wanted to share with you a little collection of these group shots. We begin with one of the very first photos  I took of the girls and it continue chronologically. You can see them grow before your eyes! Their round baby faces mature and their bodies grow lankier.

Some of these images I've shared with you before, but many I haven't.

I'm posting early today because many of you will be scooting off early for a long holiday weekend. I'll be doing that too, and will return Tuesday with a Patmore adoption tale.

Have a great weekend! If you're traveling, be safe.

See you Tuesday!

One Last Cuddle Puddle

I took these photos shortly before the first pair of Patmores departed. It's their very last cuddle puddle.  These bright young kittens excel at many things, but their greatest strength is cuddling. Being sweet is a very close second.

It's Patmore Family Portrait Time!

DSC_0098


I think I've taken more group shots of this crew than any other litters we've hosted.  Partially because Tabbies and Torbies are the easiest cats to photograph, but also because these kittens, from day one, were always near each other, and near me.  There never was a need to round them up -- they were always right there and together in a posse, pile, or puddle.

It's nice to see them all lined up so we can pause on each one. We can compare the Tabby "M" on each forehead, count their arm bands and necklaces, and find subtle difference in eye shape and eyeliner.  They're equally lovely, but each Patmore is truly unique.

Post-Surgery Patmores


DSC_0873

I know you're not going to like to hear this, but do you know what your looking at in this photograph? Those are post-surgery Patmores lightly frolicking in the morning light.

That's right, post-surgery.

Everyone did really well with the procedure. When I picked them up at the shelter they were fully awake and ready to get out of their cages and come home. During the brief stay in Vet Treatment, they charmed everyone and made fast friends with all the Staff they encountered.  Those Patmores are delightful, so I was not surprised to hear this at all!

We'll have a few more Patmore posts this week, and because Monday is a holiday in the US, we're going to take that day off.  On Tuesday and Wednesday I'll share the adoption tales, and you'll find out how the Patmores were paired!

This has been a stellar set of kittens.  I know many of you have expressed how much you'll miss this crew, and we all feel the very same way.

Express Yourself!

These little Patmores are so expressive with their head tilts, soulful eyes and pivoting ears!
