Easter Candy


DSC_1951

We had some special guests stop by this weekend! Sue and sister Jean came by with Effie and Hazel's brothers for a play date

It's been over two weeks since the girls saw Mack, Jack, and Zack last.  I don't know that they recognized each other, but they did merge and mingle quickly.

Wylla met the boys, but we didn't want to overwhelm her with five tiny explorers circling the living room, so we tucked her away upstairs after a few minutes.  She's doing really great with Effie and Hazel and I'll share more on that subject in tomorrow's post.

The boys are nearly identical, so it's tricky to tell them apart.  I think this bunny is Jack, but there's a pretty good chance I'm wrong.

Of course you know who this little bunny is.

Effie enjoyed spending time in Jean's gentle hands.

Then she climbed into her hood, and eventually out Jean's sleeve,  and back into her hand.

From left to right: Mack, Jack and Zack. Zack's worried eyes make him easiest to identify.  The boys are healthy and growing and developing at the same pace the girls.  They're sweet and social too, just like their sisters.

Here's the whole tiny gang.

I don't know who this is, but he sure is adorable.

The boys wear ribbon collars so Sue can tell them apart.  Jack is blue, Mack is red, and Zack is yellow.  I think.

After many wrestling matches in the basket, the boys crashed.

The girls got sleepy too, and joined them.

We watched the basket of nappers for quite some time,  but it was time for the boys to return home, so we tried to wake them to take a quick family portrait before they left.

The girls were soon alert.

But the boys were still out cold.

Eventually they sat up, but kept dozing off.

And by the time the boys were alert, the girls moved on were chasing each other under the sofa.  


It was a great visit, and the perfect way to spend Easter Sunday.  I prefer my Easter basket filled kittens instead of candy - just as sweet, but much, much cuter.

  5. Awwwwww!

    Wise move posting this today, instead of yesterday. You were busy with the holiday, I'm sure, and these sweet photos on top of Easter candy would've caused an epidemic of sugar comas!

  11. Oh, my, Hazel really is the odd girl out in her litter, isn't she? Methinks there was a strange traveling salescat wandering through the neighborhood this winter...

  21. Oh it is late Monday night, I needed my fill of cuteness and I got it with all the kitteh dollies you had, the white kittie cats brothers looked so dadblasted cute..Effie and Hazel are getting bigger and stronger, how sweet of Miss Wylla Stout to look and not get upset she is a trooper, how is Bean the sweetest kitteh cat ever? I imagine your easter was filled with much joy and love & happiness..God's Blessings for what you do to save Itty Bitty Kitties, there was a big article in our tiny paper about how the Humane Shelters in California are struggling to save the itty bitty little ones, many volunteers are sought so they won't have to how shall I say it delicately not let them be here, but many rallied in and around the city of Milipitas to save the Itty bitty Kitties and now there is a new home just for the Itty bitty Kitties and Volunteers work day and night..It is a quiet home and the Volunteers are trained and they do a great job, it warms my heart what you and your sweet hubs do for these little sweet itty bitty kittehs, have a most wonderful week, smooches to Wylla and Bean tooX ciao!
