Hello, Beautifuls!


Hey look, everyone! It's Miranda and Georgette! What a treat it is to see them again! They're growing into such elegant little ladies. I love how cuddly and close they look.

Craig works with their dad, so I get the occasional kitty report from him. It sounds like they are doing quite well, getting along fine with the family dog,, but still haven't completely won over their big brother cat.


No news on the kitten front. It's been over a month, maybe even five weeks since there have been kittens at the Humane Society. Surely it will be any day now. It's so strange that it's been so long.

And as I've said a million times before... it's a very good thing.

  1. They're adorable! We lost a black and white cat a few years ago. The little tortie we rescued after she passed keeps us focused on the here and now with her tortie-antics and frenetic energy. We couldn't love our new little girl more, but every time I see Miranda and Georgette, my heart skips a beat with longing. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Looks like they're keeping toasty warm on the heat vent. Hi girls! Be good to your kitty brother!

  3. So cute how they are hovering over the vent!

    What pretty ladies

    Cute or what!?

  5. So sweet that they share the vent. It's a bit of a squatter's rights thing at our house. There are plenty of ducts but some are better than others, like the ones near a sunny floor length window where you can also get behind the drapes and capture ALL the sun and heat at one time.
    So good to see these girls!!!!!!

  6. It's so good to see the girls again! Thanks for sharing the news and photos.

    Alas, my time at the shelter is coming to an end. Well, only as an employee. This economy hit us hard, we're just bringing in the donations and other funds that we used to. But it's not the end of me, I'll still volunteer with the big kitties (and hopefully kittens real soon). So I'll be sure to have lots of YAYs for everybody when those biggies find homes.

    Speaking of yays, let's hear it for all the amazing cats who were adopted last week! It feels like we set a record with Dempsey (my boyfriend), Eartha Kitty (10 years old!), Tui (adopted by a wonderful family who fell for him at first sight), Marnie (she fell asleep in her new little human brother's lap during their visit), and Pepe (6 months old, his sister was adopted a few days earlier). YAY!!

    Off to new adventures...

  7. oh they are so beautiful!
    i think they are even prettier now than when they were infants.
    and look how smart! totqally blocking the heater vent! they're probably about 102 degrees, that's why they are all lovey and sleepy.
    very nice. thanks for sharing.

  8. Oh, how lovely! What a beautiful and toasty warm pair.

    Thanks for sharing them with us.

    I think that part of the stimulus package should go to create the Great Kitten Pipeline to find kittens nationally (and worldwide) that need foster homes and send them to the homes that are open. It would be a series of transparent tubes, so that as the kittens are transported, we could see them.

    Of course, it could also transport adult cats, puppies, dogs, and any other critter, and could also transport them to permanent as well as foster homes.

  9. And Shana, I saw your comment just now!

    I'm so sorry that you won't be there any more as an employee. All the very best to you and if there's anything that any of us can do, I hope you'll share.

    *hugs*

  10. What AnnF said, Shana! And super yeahs on the big kitteh adoptions... we look forward to hearing about them as you volunteer.

    I was sooooo happy to pop on and see the young ladies again!!! I was by this morning, before the posting, but for some reason decided to check once more!! What a loverly way to end the work day!

    We wait with patience to meet the new arrivals (and thanksgiving for lack of foster kittehs, even if our selfish selves want a kitten fix!!).

  11. Good gracious me. They are such beautiful little women.

    So wonderful to see them as gorgeous young adults!

  12. Oh, those polka dots, and that Raggedy Ann nose. What precious girls.

    There's a kitty bed in our kitchen, right in front of a wall vent. It's a favorite parking spot for our boys on these rainy days.

    And a great big, heartfelt thank-you to you, Laurie, for posting this update. It's absolutely pathetic how many times a day I check in here.

  13. They have grown fast, good to see them again.

  14. I love how they are staying warm on the grate!! And yes it is a GOOD thing there aren't any homeless kittens. Unfortunately it will end soon enough and you will have the little pitter patters of kitten feet again. I bet Ms Butterbean is a bit lonely too.

  20. Shana - so sorry to hear about the shelter. Thank you for everything you've done for the furkids and I'm so glad to hear that you'll still be stopping by to volunteer

    *hugs*

  21. BIG big news from the Cattery ~ 10-year-old Trixie and 12-year-old Dickens were adopted today! YAY!

    PS ~ thanks for the kind words, friends.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They look lovely! Yay!

    Shana, sorry about the job loss, but glad you'll still be able to spend some time with the kittys!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah, but are Miranda and Georgette as mischevious as sisters Enid and Hester?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Garsh they are growing into beautiful (no surprise) kitty girls.

    I am sure their big bro will come to love them soon.

    Sigh no kittens vs kittens is such a mixed blessing for us addicts. Hardly any of the other cutesy sites are nearly as satisfying and enjoyable. Thanks many times over Laurie!

  25. The girlies are gorgeous adults! Glad you posted them. Kittens will happen in good time. Meanwhile, Charlene is stunning and doesn't have a bad side anywhere. Glad her lovely face can be here :)

  27. Shana, I'm sad about your job, especially because we can all tell how much you love the kitties and how fortunate they have been to have you. Thank you for continuing as a volunteer! Now, more than ever, those who need care need loving caregivers.

  28. They're growing up beautifully!
    I have to say that everytime I check the blog, I close my eyes, cross my fingers, and chant, "Kitties, Kitties, Kitties!" while the page loads. Well, as Laurie says, "It's a really good thing!"
    Laurie, thanks for all you do!

  29. Good news! I decided that my foster kitten Pepi should stay. I formally adopted her today for a birthday present (her first birthday is in 2 days). I think she knows.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jason - That's great news! I know it wasn't your intention intially to keep her, but I think things have worked out for the best. Of course she knows! I'm so happy for you both.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Congratulations, Pepi & Jason! Sounds like you two were made for each other. :)
