Tender Little Bean Loves on Linus

DSC_0053

I was going to tell Peter's tale next, but I downloaded these photos of Linus and Bean, and had to share them first.

This has been a challenging batch for Charlene. Six is a lot of kittens and at times and I can tell she has felt a little outnumbered by this batch - especially now that they have gotten so much bigger.

In spite of this, one-on-one, she loves them still.

I think Linus has been her favorite. And as you can see, Linus simply adores her.

  1. Aww what a lovely pair of cats :)

    I still think that Nigel would like a little mini-me kitten to keep him company...

  4. That first pic just slays me. Slays me I tell ya!

  5. I agree with Heather -- the second picture is just wonderful. It's kitty bliss. I knew that Charlene wouldn't hold their group antics against them on an individual basis!

  6. awwww - we agree that kittens in a gang can be a bit much sometimes, but when they all fall over asleep or for one-on-one time, they can be adorable!! What a cute pair...

  15. Oh gosh that first picture is just too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What wonderful pictures. Charlene is SUCH a good girl - and Linus is clearly a smitten kitten.

    ReplyDelete
  17. All the pics are beautiful, but the first one really knocks me over with Linus putting his head against Ms. Bean's chest - makes me think of a mother and child portrait. Ms. Bean is just the most awesome foster kitty mama EVER! =^..^=

  18. Awwwwwww...that second photo where the two of them are both melting in BIB (Butterbeaning-Induced Bliss) is a masterpiece.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is my very favorite series of photos on IBKC. I think Charlene wants to keep Linus as her own.

  20. What's not to love about Linus or the Bean? Love this

    ReplyDelete
  21. too much! too much! entering cuteness coma! So much love and affection! Makes me deeply content!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm having a private debate as to which picture is my favorite. The first one gets me for little Linus's paw and the look on his face. The second one... well, the look on his face is also precious.

    We all win!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awwww! Sweetness overload! I love all the Medleys, but adorable Linus is my favorite too. And I agree that the floofy little lovebug might want to stay!

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG. That first shot absolutely slays me. I think I have a new iPhone background (unless Laurie objects?)

    Too, too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So is her very own kitten in Bean's future?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Such cuteness. *melt splat*

    (work sucks lately. IBKC makes it better)

  27. I have lately got addicted to this site. I wish I didn't live on the other side of the world, I would love to adopt an itty-bitty-kitty. ._. Though I'd need a bigger home first. I already have two big kitties and one small one. :3

    The Medleys are one heart-warming bunch of kittens, and I'm personally extremely fond of Linus. <3 He's such a little ball of floof.
    These photos make me squeal. <3 <3

  28. OMG! CUTEST thing ever. Bean is such a cat mom. What a sweet thing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my goodness!! That is so Darn Sweet!! The sweetest thing that I've seen today.
    I just love it!!

    Great Pics.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love that first pic the most in this series but the last pic with Linus's ear turned out slays me; I'm always tickled with I see that with my own cats.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This may just be one of my favorite blog posts ever! Oye.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I teared up at the 2nd picture, how sweet!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Notice how, as yet, there are no denials about Linus becoming a permanent brother to Bean...
    could it be true?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bean obviously has very good taste. Linus has been my fav too. There's something extraordinary about him. I want him soooo badly.

    You so need to have a IBKC widget for us to have on our computers so we can look at the babies whenever. Or, how about a kitten webcam?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wait...what happened to the two gray smudges on the top of his head? Did they go away and now he's all white?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm still waiting for Peter's goodbye story. I'm so sad the Medley's are already leaving. It went by too fast. :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. *sigh* I can't blame you, Miss Bean.

    ReplyDelete
  38. After staring at that first beautiful picture, I have the song "I wanna hold your hand" by the Beatles in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  39. omg, you have no idea how much I needed these photos of pure bliss today.

    ReplyDelete
  40. OMG, those were the sweetest pictures I've seen in a long, long time. Thank you so much for this post!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oooooh sooo cute. Just love the pics. So is Ms. Bean getting a bro?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. i can't really add anything but to say this might be my all-time favorite post.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Well, my vacation is canceled. I just died from cuteness overload from all the love they are showing each other. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Is Charlene a Ragdoll? She is gorgeous and what an extra heart she has - would love to share her with readers on my site - www.floppycats.com

    Thanks,
    Jenny

    ReplyDelete
  53. By the way, while all pics are pawsome, the second one down is the one that did me in.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Anon, the gray spots have been fading. You can barely see them now.

    Anon, No, we're not adopting Linus.

    Jennifer, i don't think she's a ragdoll. She doesn't have that personality. More likely part Birman.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The first one really needs to be on a card. Perhaps an extra-special pack of cards featuring Charlene with various individual kittens, over the years? She's so sweet with them.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have only just seen this for the first time and it is so touching a had a few happy tears! Just beautiful :)
