Stepping Out, Sitting Up

DSC_0176

Yesterday, quarantine was up for the Patmore Four. My friend Katy was coming over for a visit, and I thought it might be fun to let her witness their entrance into the new, bigger world, so I waited for her to arrive before I set them free.

Once their door was opened, the Patmores trotted out into the living room to explore. They paused briefly to sniff about, and within just a few seconds they we darting everywhere,  climbing the couch, up in the window, and all over us humans.  I think it's the fastest transition from tiny room to big world I've ever witnessed.

My favorite moment of the morning was watching little Genevieve Patmore do a little prairie-doggin' while batting at the toy with her little white mittens.  

All the Patmores were adorable, but I think Genevieve stole the show that day with these cute moves.

Four Little Sleepyheads

They tried so very hard to stay away for the family portraits, but these four little sleepyheads just could not do it.

Though the end results weren't perfect, they were still pretty cute!

Can you tell all the Patmores apart now?  In the comments, please take a guess at who is who and on Monday I'll let you know if you're right!


OK, here are the answers! 
From left to right:  Belinda, Mavis, Theodora and Genevieve!

A Couple of Cute Minutes

DSC_0519

If you follow the IBKC on Instgram, you know I share lots of kitten movies over there.  They're very brief -- no more than fifteen seconds long -- and they show some of those glorious kitten moments that happen in a flash.

I strung a few favorite Instagram clips together along with some never-before-seen Patmore footage to make a little movie for you today.  

I do hope you enjoy it! 



Patmores, you are adorable. Keep up the cuteness and I'll do my best to catch these moments!

Beautiful Days, Beautiful Girls

DSC_0259

The weather this April has been absolutely gorgeous with record-breaking temperatures soaring well into the 80s.  Normally this time of year is a little more dreary and damp, so having so much sun is a real treat.

Every day the girls having been howling at the back door and demanding to be let out onto the deck. I don't mind their requests, and happily join them outdoors with a book or laptop in hand.

They are SO happy when they're out there breathing the fresh air in and soaking up the warmth. They would stay out there all afternoon if we allowed them to.

A couple of crows have noticed them and are now frequent visitors to the above power lines and nearby house and garage rooftops. They cry out at the girls and wave their wings in attempt, I think, to shoo them off. Wylla and Charlene watch them close, but seem more entertained than threatened.

Each day we do all we can to keep our girls content, and I love that Mother Nature has allowed us to give them this extra dose of happiness these past few weeks.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing my girls happier!

More Pats, Please!

DSC_0387

 If you asked any of the Patmore Four if they would like a few more pats, the answer will always be yes. They LOVE love and are such an affectionate lot.

I don't know their history, but judging by how comfortable they've been with us from the start, they must have spent their early days with lots of human contact.

Overall, they seem pretty healthy.  They eat well, and everything thing that goes in seems to come out the other end like it should.  We do have some goopy eyes, which sometimes means there's an underlying upper respiratory issue, but we haven't seen any other symptoms besides an occasional sneeze.  Their medicine seems to be clearing up things up.

Sue and Jean came over for visit the other day and they both made fast friends with the Patmores. Within seconds of their arrival, the kittens were piled up in their laps, happily playing and purring, and eventually napping.

 These happy and healthy kittens are growing fast, and I fear their stay with us is going to be a short one!

We're just going to have to savor these precious few weeks with these very special girls.
