Exploring the Great Upstairs

Usually towards the end of their stay with us, we allow our fosters to come upstairs and do a little exploring. It's quite exciting for the kitties when their world nearly doubles in square footage.

Upstairs, there are two windows ledges to perch on which offer wonderful views of the neighborhood. There are excellent sun patches to nap or romp in, a bed and lots of chairs to hide under, a surplus of toys and lots of carpeting.

Here are some shots of the happy little Musselmans exploring The Great Upstairs with their pal, Butterbean.

  1. Does Drewey tolerate this sort of invasion of her domain?

  2. oh i love the back lit-fuzzy kitten pics, they are beautiful!
    so Laurie this is a nice and gently way of breaking it to all of us that the Musselman litter is about to go for their forever homes.
    and if i have to guess, since kitten season is whaning, i'll bet you will be ready for a break with your permanent residents.
    they are so lovely, thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous babies!

  3. Those itty bitty kitten tails, perfectly highlighted by sunbeams; they just slay me. Such beautiful photos of the fuzzy babies! Best wishes to the Musselmans and their furever homes.

  5. I hadn't realized how small a two pound kitten was until I got to play with one on Sunday. They're SO small and SO scatterbrained.

    The IBKs look so much larger in the pictures.

  6. A Tuesday Haiku:

    Sunlight illuminates
    halos for some of God's
    most wondrous creatures

  7. Beautiful pictures, Laurie - they give a sense just how itty-bitty these kitties are.
    I will sure miss this beautiful litter, especially as I just had an itty bitty houseguest for a week who has markings like Benny. Ah, if only I could indulge in another kitty or three!
