A Royal Greeting for Bean

The quarantine period is now over, so yesterday the Tipton Tabbies were sprung from their quarters.

They were starting to get very curious about what was waiting for them on the other side of the door, and it was becoming quite a challenge to get in or out of their room without someone (or everyone) escaping.   Needless to say, they are thrilled with this new freedom.

And yes, they've met Bean.

  3. I miss fostering kittens!! I dont have an extra room or bathroom where I can quarantine them though and with two cats of my own, the risk was too much... :(

  14. Is Floyd being discriminated against? He's not appeared as much as his brothers and he's the prettiest of them all ;)

      Nooo, the IBKC never discriminates. But different kittens provide perfect pictures at different times. They all get their photo spreads in due course :)

  16. Adorable greeting...Miss Charlene is probably in her own Tabby Boy Heaven!

  17. Charlene can make friends with any kitten. I love how Royal's tail is up in excitement. The litter is the best size so no one feels overwhelmed (including Charlene) and no one gets left out.

  20. I have only owned adult rescue cats, so I don't have any kitten experience. Is Royal frightened by Bean or just curiously greeting her? Is Bean happy in that picture? Is it all just their floofiness or are they standing their fluff on end because they are scared?

    1. Nobody's tense or frightened. No hair standing on end, he's floofy and always looks like that.

      Bean is always calm when she meets the kittens, and most often, but not always they are immediately receptive to her.

    2. Thanks for the explanation. Glad to hear everyone's happy.

    3. Thanks for rescuing adult cats. They need a lot of help finding homes. I think it's fair to say that if Bean had problems with the kittens she wouldn't be on the chair touching noses. :)

  21. Has Ms. Bean ever met a kitten she didn't like?

    ReplyDelete
  22. AWwwww Kitty Kisses! With floof to spare! And a happy tail! Adorable!

    Royal is always this floofy? Wow! (Ponders the wonder of it all...)

  23. I think that someone hit the nail on the head.. Bean always gets along with the new kittens because they have kitten food breath. :) If she can't eat it, she can always enjoy the Eau de Chat Cronchies.

  24. Royal: 'Hey girl, we just met and this might sound crazy, but do you want to give me a bath?'

    ReplyDelete
  25. There has to be a third kitten in that picture... somewhere in Royal's floof explosion.
