that's because you have marvelous taste, charlene.
Indeed, Shana. I'd sure be dooing my share of snorgling if *I* had an Ira, or a Walter, or a Tessa, or a... heh, you get the idea... around. :)
Charlene needs to get her last licks in before the Boys have to leave. :)
aww, the way she lickes each side of his face, it looks as if she's kissing away his tears. *sob*
I love how Charlene loves "her" foster kittens. She's such a good mama.
Charlene saying goodbye, kinda sad as I have been following the progress of them. Just gorgeous though and I am sure she will enjoy your next lot.
i dont want the boys to leave :( i wish i could take them but i have my own two chubby sons that i love with all my heart. although i seem to fall in love with every one of your kittens!
What a nice cat Charlene is!!! It has to be a comfort for little ones to see a sweet member of their own species and to get some love. Reminds me of my Mom! :)
Charlene is so sweet to give kisses and licks to Ira. I sure will miss the little guys and know lots of people will too. Hugs to Ira and Walter from me!
I have to wonder if Charlene's ever met a kitten she didn't like? I may have to guess no!
How does Charlene deal with the comings and goings of all these little kittens? Do you think she even remembers? I don't know what is said about a cat's "remember" span...but she seems to love them all so much and then they go away...does she get sad?
Anon, She never shows any sign of depression or sadness after they leave. At first, she always spends a lot of time sleeping, and then after she catches up on her cat naps, she tends to get bored. She's been through this dozens of times now, and seems to get the whole process.
I agree. I want a snorgle too.
Laurie - I'm so glad to hear that. I assumed she wouldn't get depressed...I suppose cats don't really have the attachment emotion that we do (anthropomorphizing is one of my bad habits). I'm glad she does well with it!! She sure does seem to enjoy the babies while she has them. Thanks for the note back! Love your site...I'm definitely addicted. Moira aka Anonymous
Is there any kitten which is not delicious?
I don't think Auntie Bean ever met a kitten she didn't like the taste of! She has a sweet tooth for babies.
Tastes good all 'round, eh Miss Charlene?
We agree. Ira is scrumptious!
Nothing sweetens a day like a dose of cherished Charlene Butterbean and the babies.
