  4. What a serious little man. I'd love to scoop him up and snuggle him something fierce.

  5. Oh noes! More black leather noses! Perfect for booping.

    Can't wait to see the rest identified. So far, only one boy among lovely sisters, like the Darlings ("sigh", Francine).

    Oh my, Fern and Ridley are beyond adorable.

    In our household, kitties such as Fern and Ridley are referred to as "stealth tabbies." We have two cats, who, at first glance, appear to be your standard-issue tuxies. However, if you look closer (and have the proper lighting), you can see the tabby markings in their coats. Plus, they have the lovely light undercoats, too. And yes, we've been known to riff shamelessly on the old U.S. Forest Service public service announcement (with the wee girl pledging her love to the iconic bear) by saying to them, "I love you 'Mokey!"

    P.S. - Other "Anonymous" - Yes (*sigh...*) Francine. And Miss Rhoda, too.

  10. So pretty! Err, handsome! Growing up, we had a litter of tabbies just like these two. And they were born in my bedroom dresser - I was in absolute heaven! Itty bitties 24/7! One of the two that we kept lived a nice long life - and was one of the most gorgeous kitties I remember us having (we always had kitties!). These two will be just as gorgeous! :)

  11. He looks so dignified - like he's posing for his portrait in oils, to be hung in the board room...

  12. What handsome green eyes he has! It is killing me being introduced to the Lyttletons only one at a time!! I check every day to see who is the next one to be announced. How many are there????

  13. His coat in the second picture looks almost chinchilla-esque, don't you think, Shana?

  16. Young Master Ridley, you are sneaking into my heart along with sister Fern.

    I would love to know the names of your Tuxie sibs.
    And you will LOVE your auntie who is on the other side of the door, dreaming of bathing you and snacking on your food. ;-)

  23. Wait, I'm confused. Neither of these have the white whiskers or pronounced white chests from the other day.

    Ohhhh he is just so cute!!! Need a Cuteness overload alert! He is so little and I just want to scoop us this wee kit and cuddle with him.

  25. Anon,, I suppose technically they would be classified as "black tabbies". Their roots of their black hairs are white though, so they're not truly black.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I'm betting Charlene Butterbean will have quite the crush on young Ridley.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Were it not for their adorable roly-poly pudginess, I'd say they are classic smoky egyptian maos. They have the same coloring and the gooseberry green eyes.
