A Whole Lot of Lytteltons

Now that you've met all the little ones,,, here are a few shots of the family unit.

They are a close knit bunch, and are all usually within arms distance of each other. They're very people oriented too, and are happy to meet anyone who comes into their room. They are just friendly little beings.

We've still got a week of quarantine left, which won't come soon enough for this brood. They are already screaming at the door to get out. It's nearly impossible to get through the door without one (or six) dashing out.

Last time we had such a large litter was the Pettibones. It certainly means more kitten dishes to wash and poop to scoop, but they're worth it. They really are a lovely little group - each is so sweet and friendly and of course, adorable. It's such a pleasure getting to know them!

  3. Oh my goodness...I've not been compelled to comment recently but had to this time: the look on Thelma's face in the fifth picture is too much. They are all so squishable.

  4. Like Beachgal, I giggled at Thelma's face in the fifth picture. She's going to be a character -- if not already.

  5. Yeah, it looks like at the fifth picture Thelma is catching on that whatever you're waving around isn't a can of tuna. One more look just to be sure, and then she's out of here.

  6. What a great gathering of chocolatey goodness! These babies are adorable. The Thelma look got me, too. Laurie, it has been asked before, but how the heck do you get any work done with snuggly babies like these around?

  10. What a bunch of cuties. Keep an eye on Thelma because gray kitties are insane (as the human of one I speak from experience).

  11. oh my goodness. ezra reminds me of norman ashby - that's who i thought about when i first saw his picture. not only his coloring, but in his posture. and it sounds like he is just as cuddly.

  13. They are all super-adorable! While I also like Thelma's facial expressions, Fern has such a sweet little smile on her face. This should be a fun group!!!

  14. I don't know if it's the dark coats, the perfectly round eyes, the X-mouths, or a combination thereof, but they just looks so dang SERIOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Little Thelma, you would stand out in any crowd!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, being so cute is indeed SERIOUS business!

  17. One of these kittens is not like the others... darling brood! Can't wait to see Butterbean interact with them.

  18. No "Thelma" tag? I'm sure she's going to have a lot of fans searching for her. :)

  19. Shhh listen closely, they're all saying "We wanna meet Charlene! When can we meet Charlene?"

    I know you can't shorten the quarantine time, but I wish you could.

    Do you know what happened to their mama?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Jason,,, I don't know much about their history,,, you rarely do with the kittens.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gee, I came into the comments to tell you to watch out for Thelma, but it looks like everyone's already caught on. ;-)

    I think the second picture is my favorite. What a handful!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love how bright and inquisitive they all look: "Oh, what's that?!?" Little charmers, all, but Thelma's got the edge today.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I want to move to Seattle just so I can adopt some of these babies. What a precious family!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thelma looks exactly like our Baby Moondust. He gives us that look in the 5th picture!! Same coloring, but he has bigger ears. What a lovely bunch!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Totally adorable!! I like the last picture..it looks like two of the kittens are having a little talk!!! They are precious!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yep, I second Kitty's warning - the gray ones are crazy.

    Oh what a beautiful bunch of kittens! If I was close by, I would take Pia and Gia and Thelma. In one of the photos, Thelma looks like she is smiling at you. They are so adorable! Oh to own a place where they would allow me this bunch plus my own two. Would need a helper though to take care of 8 cats.

  36. Pic #5: Queen Thelma is not amused. But could be swayed by some fresh tuna and tummy scritches.

  37. Thelma is so adorable. Of course they are all cute, but my gray kitty is sitting next to me right now. She's my first cat, ever, so gray kittens hold a special place in my heart.
