Beanie is so good with those babies! <3
Charlene is awesome. What fantastic pictures.
Charlene is so good to her babies!
Again, your photos have turned me into a squee-ing pile of goo. BTW, I am in love with Charlene's white toes.
Squeeee . . . how adorable. GREAT pictures Laurie.
Everything above x a gazzillion!
It really is amazing how good Charlene is with so many babies...and so photogenic too! Such a gorgeous girl! :)
Oh that made my heart happy. :-)
It's the ones where Charlene has a paw on the itty bitty that crack me up...almost like "That's enough now."
The third from the last just made my heart absolutely melt. The IBKC is my happy place.
Oh my goodness! The third and the third from the last just kill me.
Charlene is such a great mother hen to all the fosters! Bean's Finishing School indeed.
She is so pretty and what a great big sister she has been to all the little ones that have come to play with her.
YEAH for Bean - kitten raiser extrodinaire!!
I wish I could identify each kitten but I am not that good. Who is the buff one with the "gold medal"? Such a beatiful graduation picture...
It's Buster Wiggings.
that was my favorite too! Looks like a proud portrait.
Such a great den mother!
So sweet. I love me a Bean! All those kittens are so lucky to get a chance to be molded and learn from the best....
I think you should refer to kitten batches from now on as "Beanie Babies".... LOL
Awww! We've been tempted to foster (since reading this blog), but we're not sure how our two grownup cats would get along with little ones. (We've got one crotchety old lady with a penchant for snuggling, and one curious/friendly type.) Seeing all these lovely pics of Ms. Bean with the kittens makes me want to find out even more.
A lot of foster families keep their kittens completely separate from their permanent residents. They don't have to mingle.
Good to know!
What great photos! I especially like the second one, where La Bean is all 'meh' in response to the kitten floofing in her face!Keep the great photos coming, Laurie, and thanks for all that you do!
She is such a sweetheart, my two would NOT put up with kittens in their home
Oh!! What a wonderful series!!!
Laurie, thanks for working so hard to keep us entertained while you wait for some itty bitties. I bet you never thought fostering would be so much work when you didn't have any kittens in the house! =^..^=
Thanks for your thanks! It is a lot harder to blog without kittens! Thank you for acknowledging that! Content comes easy when there are cute kittens doing cute things!
I have been reading for awhile, but have to say this is my favorite post :) I love seeing how sweet she is with all the kittens you foster! So sweet!
I am completely in love--these photographs are spectacular. How do you get any work done when you have all these beautiful animals around! Thank you so much for sharing.
So much adorableness. The Bean is so special eh?
I nearly laughed out loud at the one with Bean's paw on that cute little creamsicle-colored kitten's mouth. Who is that?
It's one of the Lovejoy boys. I think it was Neville.
I would love to know who you think was Bean's favorite kitten!
This is a gorgeous collection. Excellent photos. I particularly like the one with Bean on her back in the background and the little nest of kittens in the foreground. So cute.
Your Bean is a very VERY special lady. The IBKitties are lucky to have her as their mentor.
Every last drop...heartwarming!
I am always amazed at Bean's total acceptance of the kittens. It must be wonderful for them to have a loving Mama figure while they wait for their forever homes.Thanks for putting these gorgeous pictures together Laurie.
Oh she's such a wonderful foster sister! I love each and every picture!
These are all so special but the one with Bean and Linus always melts my heart!! Floofy love!!!
Squeee, so many of my favorites! Walter and Ira! Linus! Geraldine! The Furman Five! They are ALL precious, and Bean is truly exceptional. Love!
Gah! Pudgy Ira-Finch belly!
She is SO GORGEOUS and what a sweet girl - is she a Ragdoll? Beautiful!!!
Just read your FAQ's - I had a Birman . .she was a total love :) (people always confuse Birmans and Ragdolls! Including me!)
Wonderful photos! And such fun to look back at all the adorableness.
The kitten with arched back is adorable.
Charlene is such a beauty and what a wonderful purr-sonality to be a good foster mom to so many little tykes. Cats can be so territorial, but Bean always welcomes the babies. She is a very special girl!! Thanks for your wonderful photos and the great work you do on behalf of kitties!
Which one to pick? Everyone sleeping on the bed but Beannie is falling off? Beanie telling Neville - read the paw boy and shush? Or Beanie and Nigel cuddling? What a way to start a Friday!Thanks for continuing to share with us even without kittens. Perhaps we could get Charlene's early life story?
Charlene's birthday is next week, and i'm planning on doing a post on her early days.
all these pictures made me feel so calm and happy....(i was having a bad day)...
It seems to me that Miss Bean is with the perfect family as she is the most perfect Auntie Bean to all those completely ADORABLE babies!
Bean and Buster w/the pumpkins is my favorite, I think. He looks so proud to be there. She's such a good kitten mom. :)
Aaahhh... there are no words to express the wonderfulness of these pictures!
This is a very special dynamic between Charlene and the kittens. Do you think it's mostly her personality or because she is female that she responds so well to them? I remember reading that she is not and has not been a mother, but I imagine that could create a bond like this too in another situation.
Awww what adorable photos!!!
It's been said a million times here, but it's worth repeating: I heart Charlene. She is an awesome big sister to all of your itty bitty charges.
Waaah! They are so cute!mesin fotocopy | SEO Company | rumah dijual | perlengkapan bayi | jakarta hotel | party organizer | parfum
