Names for the Gray Babies!

DSC_6777

You got a peek at our gray babies last week, but now it's time for formal introductions.

Please say hello to Mr. Hurley Huddleston!

Here's Spencer, his brother!

Umm, Spencer? You got something on your nose.

"Thanks! Got it!"

And last, but certainly not least, the darling and delightful Lovey Huddleston! She and Spencer look similar, but she's got little lynx ears, which makes her easy to identify!

It's a pleasure making your acquaintance, dear Huddlestons.  We're so happy to have you here!

The Last of the All-Tabby Pack!

I would like you to meet your new boyfriend. His name is Beau Huddleston, and OH, this fellow is a charmer. He won the "First to Purr" award in this party of five.

And here's number five, our final Huddleston.   Her name is Tillie, and she's the smallest in the set.

She wearing a little breakfast on her nose, but when you're this dang cute, anything looks good on you.

You wear it well, Tillie.

In the photo below, that's big brother Beau with a protective arm over sister Tillie.  They have similar features, but once you see their coats, you'll see they are actually quite different.  Equally adorable, but quite different.

So what do you think? Are they cute or are they cute???

----------

One last thing before we go this morning -- to our local friends, if you're free on Saturday, please swing on by the University of Puget Sound campus for their annual Flea Market and Fieldhouse of Awesome Stuff.  It's part vintage market, part craft sale, and always a great show.  I'll be there with my crafts, and I'll be debuting some new kitty art pieces, too.

 I've been printing some of my favorite kitten photos on cotton paper and mounting them on birch panels. The surface is coated with several layers of gel medium, each layer is sanded, which makes a linen-like surface. Even though they're photographs, they almost have the quality of a painting. They measure six by six inches and are about and inch thick.

It's always fun to create something new and send it out into the world. I am curious to see what the response is at the show.

It's always so nice meeting you in reality, so I hope some of you can stop by!   For show details, click HERE. I'll be in booth #40 on the main floor.

Have a great weekend! We'll see you on Monday. I'll be sharing the names of the rest of the crew then.

Welcome, Team Tabby!

With Charlene's birthday PLUS the arrival of a new batch of kittens, we had quite an exciting day around here, didn't we?  Thank you once again for being a part of all the fun.  We loved reading all of your sweet words to Charlene. And we loved all of your enthusiasm for our new litter!    

The kittens adjusted quickly to their new surroundings and are all settled in. They are social, playful, eating well, and seem to be a hearty bunch.

With all of yesterday's excitement, I haven't had a chance to nail down the names for all of the kittens in the litter yet, so full introductions will have to wait until I figure all of that out.  The larger the litter, the longer it takes to find a name to match each kitten and a surname that works for all.

In the meantime, here's another look at the two you met yesterday plus one more member of Team Tabby.

This little gray tabby is a girl. You got a peek at her yesterday -- she was the one sitting outside of the basket with the adorable head tilt.

This handsome little fellow was the one inside the basket in yesterday's picture.

And this solid chunk is their brother.  He's the biggest of the brood.

You shouldn't have too much trouble telling everyone apart in this litter. They are all tabbies, but everyone has distinctively different patterns, and there is variation in size and color, too.


I think you're really going to enjoy getting to know this set -- they are as adorable as they are delightful!  I can't wait to show you videos of the whole crew romping about!!

Welcome, Team Tabby! We're so glad you're here!



There's still more to meet, so tune in tomorrow!
