Patience, Butterbean, babies will be under your expert care before you know it.
Poor little Butterbean, we hope you have some new babies to raise soon.
We're all hoping for new babies for you to teach, Charlene. I know it's hard to be patient.
We want 'em just as much as you do, girlfriend, but your mama and papa need a little R & R before we get our wish.
That face says it all... Mom, get me some playmates. She will be extra ticked off when you go on vacation.
Aww. Sue better bring her next set of fosters over for a visit to tide Ms. Butterbean over.
Hang in there, sweetpea...soon you'll have kittens a'plenty to teach and play with. In the meantime, try not to look so gorgeous, will you?
Oh Charlene it can't be too long. In the meantime, get caught up on your naps.
What a pout.. what a cutie.
I'll be it's been a long time since she's last been alone. The poor little thing.
Awww, Charlene! I hope that, in the absence of itty-bitties, you get all the extra snorgles and appreciation from your momma and poppa! (I don't know if virtual ones help, but if they do - consider yourself stroked and admired and adored and snorgled from afar!)
Hang in there, beanie bean! It will be so worth the wait!
Charlene is so pretty. Those beautiful blue eyes get me every time. :)
How bored can a Butterbean be?I think we know the answer!Charlene, Baby, have a HUGE snorgle from England!
We love you Charlene!!!
Aw, Charlene - you are so adorable, even in your butterbeaniest funk! There will be more kittens - patience, dear! *snorgles*
I wondered how she was faring without any kittens to wash. Poor Butterbean!
I've enjoyed following the adventures of Charlene and the IBKs! I've been very concerned by the news reports of flooding in the Seattle area - I hope that you and everyone there are OK!
I'm sorry you are bored, Charlene. I wish you were bored more often. As much as I love seeing the babies, I wish there were less unwanted litters!!! Thank heaven for you guys!Patti in KY
OOO! OOO! pick me! i'll come over and cuddle and play with Ms Butterbean, i dont want to see her sad and lonely! if she were "looking longingly out the window" I would be in tears!
Mz Bean is free to come play at my house. I am sure she would love Columbus. She has a little following out here!
Don't worry Butterbean there will be more babies to tend to soon!Happy New Year to all of you! I am on to 3rd foster sweetie. I can see it can easily become addicting!Cheri
aw. She loves being a vicarious little mama!
Charlene you wondrously loving Butterbean kitty....Rest up and hydrate yourself! When your humans let you have another batch you will not have time to be bored.
There will be more kittens soon Butterbean.Oh yes there will. You know it.
No kittens, but if you want, you can feast your eyes on these cartoon kittens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlRo-DHmTLoYes, I know, it's juvenile, but it's cute, and the music is very good.
Oh, precious darling Butterbean. You have so much love and nurturing to give that this time out must seem endless to you. Try to take some time each day to replenish your resources, relax, and receive all the love your Mom, Dad and groupies have for you. Awaiting the next batch right along with you,Love,Lynda
I hope you get kitties soon! I love your blog and gave you one of those blog awards that people pass around. I'm a huge fan of the Committee and have purchased every set of cards so far - I look forward to the LaBath set if there will be one. :-) I also ordered one of you paper flowers and it's a great addition to my room. Here's the awardhttp://meaningfulrevisions.wordpress.com/2009/01/11/proximidade-award/
Here is my posthttp://dewicasgwent.vox.com/library/post/clearly-the-temporary-closure-of-ibkc-has.html
Dear sweet Charlene! How you love all those babies! And we all love you! Hopefully all the babes that you have tended to will grow to be as sweet as you!
Itty bitty Hoosier kitties have an uncle Johnny instead of a Charlene. He loves the little ones too.hoosierkitty.blogspot.com
Charlene's fans are getting bored, too....new kitties any time soon???
I'm thinking this picture has been here nearly a week, so maybe L & C are on that R&R and it's getting ever closer to their return and more IBKs.Kinda' like waiting for Spring, huh?
Hi! I just found your blog a few days ago, and I love it! I used to live in Tacoma, and I would see the Tacoma petsmart kitties when I was in getting fish supplies (I was in college when I lived in Tacoma, and not in a stable enough position yet for my own kitties). Anyway, it's nice to think that some of the kittens I oohed and awwwed over at that petsmart might have been under your loving care! Thank you for all your hard work!
Anne B, exactly like waiting for spring. Kitten season is around the corner! It's been slow at our shelter- so nice to see lots of empty cages. We have more time to scritch the adult cats waiting for their forever homes.
There's a pot of bulbs on my porch, hibernating till Spring. I give them an encouraging "Hi" every day. I'd be hard pressed to say which I'm anticipating more, my bulbs coming up or the return of the IBKC.
Oh, me too, Butterbean! C'mon kitties!
We're longing for new kittehs.... Poor Mama Charlene, all alone!
Ohhhh!!! So cute. Come on kittens...hurry up already!
I think we ALL need to see some Charlene ButterBeany Babies as soon as possible!
I hope you guys are enjoying the R&R and the nice quiet house, but...we miss you!! Even if there are no resident kittens, your posts always make me smile, Laurie! get some well-deserved rest and come back to us soon. Give Charlene a belly snorgle for me!
I miss your updates so much! I would even love to see more of The ButterBean or your other kitties. You just take such good pictures of them.
Laurie,Do you mind if I ask when you think you might be returning to us? I don't begrudge you your time off, quite the contrary. But if I had a goal to look forward to the wait would be so much easier.We love you, that's all.
So glad that i found this blog! You are definitely after my heart. Thank you so much for what you do!Many purrs,Carrie the SnipPet Girl, a fellow artist, foster mom and spay/neuter volunteer
I commented awhile back about my foster baby Cassie, and someone asked to keep them updated. I still have her (unimaginably... she still hasn't been adopted :\ ) and I have new pictures! She is blossoming into the most beautiful baby ever - http://s680.photobucket.com/albums/vv165/adurdenVT/Thank goodness she loves to be brushed! It's ALL floof!And I'm missing the IBKC's too, but she is definitely a nice distraction :)
Does the Butterbean ever talk while she's with the itty bitty kitties?
I'm so totally with "anonymous' " post saying it's OK that you're resting. We want that for you.... but might Sue or Shana Banana give us a possible date to looks forward to, or maybe entertain us with some kitty stories, huh, please?Desperate enough to beg.
Cassie is a little darling. Thanks for the link. Sadly my own little itty bitty foster kitty is still with me as well. It's clear she'll be very happy staying with me. She's even getting along better with my other female cat. She hates going to the adoption shows. I have to chase her around (she's learned when it's time to go and hides). But she's a good kitten going on 1 year.http://www.catster.com/cats/864599JasonInIllinois
Thanks for checking her out! She really is the best behaved cat I've ever seen. I wish we had adoption shows, I know she'd be scooped up immediately but the only method they use is petfinder. Aww she is beautiful! I'm a sucker for black (or almost black) babies. Good luck getting her adopted, but I'm sure she's happy in the meantime! Cassie never stops purring.. with her lion's mane I'm sure it'll be a roar in no time :)
I wonder how little Percy is doing?
Oh Charlene, we feel your pain! So looking forward to those new little kitties
Me too Butterbean. Me too.Kittens soon?
