The Spooners!

The Spooner's stay with us was brief, but while they were here, they gained many adoring fans.

How could they not?  Just LOOK at these two babies.


Happy Valentine's Day from Vivienne and Theodore Spooner.


Well, here are the Spooners, all grown up, and still looking fabulous!




And here's what Roxanne, their mama,  has to say...

Sophie and Phineas/Vivienne and Theodore Spooner are doing well. Finny is a big teddy bear, so your name choice of Theodore (Teddy!) was pretty appropriate. He's a big sweetheart and loves belly rubs. We often find him propped up against a doorway or in some other funny position, lying on his back in the hallway and looking adorable, or on the piano while Ian plays. Sophie has her two thrones--the highest part of the cat tree that Finny can't reach, and a pillow on the sofa. She's a big cuddle bug and still loves to knead (unfortunately, she prefers to knead our necks!). The two of them don't cuddle together much anymore, but you can still find them grooming each other sometimes. Finny isn't as fastidious as Sophie, so we take him to the groomer regularly. People always comment on how beautiful he is, and last time I went, the groomer even said she wished she could take him home! They're both super lovable kitties and we love having them in our lives.








Thanks for the update, Roxanne!  It's clear these kitties have a happy life with you and Ian.   Thank you for giving them so much love!






And friends, we still haven't met our match yet, so if you are in the position to give, please pop on over to our FUNdraising page, and get your dollars matched!  THANKS

  4. Laurie: Sorry this isn't related to kitties, but I don't know if you have a page for your art. The July issue of Oprah and the June issue of Real Simple include pages of illustrations of paper art as illustrations for stories. The artist for both is Su Blackwell. You may already be aware of these layouts, but in case you aren't, I thought you'd find them interesting.

  6. The Spooners were among my favorite litters, even though their stay at the IBKC wasn't long. They looked like angel kitties to me, and looks like they still are! :) They are so gorgeous and so sweet! Glad to see them all grown up!

  7. They are stunning! I have a BIG long-haired Ginger boy that loves to lie on his back and get belly rubs too. I can't resist that floof!

  10. I just watched a video Laurie made of these fuzzy little itty-bitties (http://www.theittybittykittycommittee.com/2010/03/spooner-retrospective.html). They have become magnificent cats.

    I love that Finny appreciates the piano! Thank you so much for letting us see them again!!

  15. Oops, I meant third picture from the bottom, not from the top, in my previous comment.

    Just to be perfectly clear -- the one where Mr. Phineas is exhibiting a perfect back sprawl with remarkably straight alignment and an exemplary paw tuck :)
