Wee Ones in the Window

The kittens have a big day ahead - they're going in for a round of vaccines and micro-chipping. They never enjoy the needles, of course, but they enjoy all the love and attention they receive when they visit the shelter. They are always quite popular with the staff and volunteers.

I weighed Fiona before breakfast and even with an empty belly, she weighed two pounds. She's the last to cross over the mark, so hopefully we'll putting them all on the surgery schedule for early next week. Which means that this time next week, we'll be Lively-less!

Oh dear. Are you ready for that?

Today I have the last set of group shots with ALL the kittens to share with you. I think I took these pictures post lunch and pre nap because some are licking their faces clean and some are dozing off.

Like all kittens of our have discovered, the window is the best place to be on a sunny afternoon.

  1. Love that last photo--I just can't believe how orange Irving is, especially compared to Lambert!

  2. These are classic kittens. No wrinkly hairless bodies, no smushed faces, no slinky Siamese physiques. Not that there's anything wrong with those kinds of kittens -- there isn't. Okay, maybe I'm not so cool with the hairless ones -- I'll admit it. Of course, if I had one, I'd love it to pieces.

    But this group of kittens is classic and charming and I love them. Traditional tabbies of various colors, a sweet gray tuxedo cat -- sturdy little kitten bodies and clear little kitten eyes. Heck, I bet there's a decent mouser amongst them!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Lively kittens, as I expect their new homes will. Thanks, Laurie!

  21. Do the local Police provide traffic control outside your house, to keep the adoring fans moving on. Or do you just let them gather hoping to spot the Itty Bitties or even the Bean sunning themselves in your windows?

  26. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE your website. I wish you were local so I could adopt...but I would surely end up with too many kitties. The pictures are amazing and the kittens are so cute I can barely stand it. I could spend hours looking at them all here! Thank you!
