Sweet Imogene

Meet Imogene, the only girl in this bunch of Bartletts. She was the scrawniest kitten in the litter, but she's filling out FAST.

Her coat is mostly buff, but she has a few smokey patches on her arms and backside too. At first, I thought it was dirt, but the patches remained after her bath and seem to be getting darker everyday. It will be interesting to see how her color develops.

Imogene is a happy and bright little girl with a shining personality. She's loving and affectionate towards her littermates and us humans too, and she's been that way since day one.

  3. You do have a wonderful way of conveying each Kitten's personality. Greetings, Imogene! Can't wait to see how you and Miss Charlene get along!

  4. They all have fascinating almond eyes.. more so than you usually see in cats.

    Lovely bunch so far.

  5. Hi Sweet Imogene! There's no need for sad eyes now - you are in the best place ever for kitties needing a bit of a boost in finding their forever homes. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your sibs playing in wild, happy spirits soon!

  15. All of the Bartlett's look positively saintly! They need little halos over their heads!

    They must be Christmas angels.

  16. These sweet little Bartletts are so lucky to have you taking care of them. You can really see how much they've been through in their little faces! I hope they all get healthy and strong fast.

  17. Sweet, sweet Angels. Those faces are too much. I've never seen such sweetness. Christmas Angels no doubt and the luckiest kitties ever. Thank you to the Saint that brought them in to the shelter.

  18. She has such sad eyes. I bet whoever adopts her for her forever home will make sure her life is full of happiness. It may have been a rough start, but she and her brothers have everything going for them now!

  19. I'm not sure she's sad-looking; I'd call it more pensive. Perhaps she realizes more than her brothers that the Great Paw sent them the right direction at that fork in the road. It's true! The Bartletts' futures are stunning! (Thanks, Laurie!)

  20. I don't think her eyes are sad, I think they are wondering why Laurie is wasting valuable petting time by taking pictures.

  21. Such beautiful dark eyes. Love you, little Imogene!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi sweet bunny bear! I love your almond shaped eyes and I bet you are just a lovebug.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aw! That face would melt even the most hardened grinch-heart! Not that there are any grinches lurking around the IBKC page, of course, but Imogene should know that she's got super kitten endearing powers!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So far, I only want all three... I am sure tomorrow that will change... to all four....

  25. is she a polydactyl?

    ReplyDelete
  26. What are you thinking about, little buff beauty? And who gave you those chocolate eyes?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sweet baby girl kitteh! You are so lovely, Miss Imogene!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eat up and play, little girl. Life will be better now.

  29. They all look like Victorian street waifs: winsome, thoughtful and plaintive. I think the lack of fat on their faces is the reason their eyes are such an odd shape, but I'm looking forward to seeing them get plump and frisky. :)

    Grow, little Bartletts! Grow!

  30. Does sweet little Imogene have extra toesies?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Welcome, dear little Imogene! You are one gorgeous little girl >^..^<

    ReplyDelete
  32. Gahh...all of the Bartletts have such beautiful upturned eyes! Soooo sweet. Catena, I'm with you -- did you find any good bargains on airfare to Seattle?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Beth Ann, I thought that too but I think they're just her front paws close together.

    All the Bartletts including Imogene have the lovely almond-shaped eyes. Makes them look exotic AND cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think I'll affectionately call her "Immie" for short. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. she is absolutely gorgeous and looks like a total LOVE kitty! i think some pics with the 'hubs' would be appropriate at this point Laurie... she seesm to be just waiting for some big shoulders to nap on! she is wonderful! again- 'almond eyes~" beautiful!

  36. Are the Bartletts older than most of the kittens are when you get them, Laurie? I notice that their eyes have all changed, whereas some of the kittens you get still have blue eyes. How old are the kittens usually when they come to you, anyway, and how old are these ones?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love her!

    Her eyes are so expressive and soulful.
    She will make someone very happy after she has made us in IBKC land!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awww, what a sweet baby girl indeed! I had a feeling it would be 3 boys and 1 girl, like the Lively Bunch. Lots of snuggles to you, tiny Imogene!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a sweet girl! Although I love every single kitten that comes to live with you...

  40. Purry greetings ~ Such a rare name, Imogene. Thanks for pulling that name out of the history books. Here's what it means from Behind the Name - The name of a princess in the play 'Cymbeline' (1609) by Shakespeare. He based her on a legendary character named Innogen, but the name was printed incorrectly and never corrected. The name Innogen is probably derived from Gaelic inghean meaning "maiden".

  41. We wish for joy and love this Christmas, for this dear little one and all fer siblings.

  42. Swoon! Two gingers in one litter, and a ginger girl to boot! Oh, would that I lived in Seattle....

    ReplyDelete
  43. No extra toes on this girl.. it just looks that way because she's holding her paws together.

    kisekileia - THey're around 8 weeks now. They're older than average for us, but they're pretty small for their age. Usually our kittens are 4-6 weeks when they move in. We've had much younger and much older too.

  44. Is it me or do the kitties look like they are on the verge of bursting into tears?

    ReplyDelete
  45. what a sweet little face..Don't look so sad little one, you are in kitty heaven in Laurie's house and we send you tons of love...
