No Kittens, But an Awesome Update!

No kittens just yet, but hopefully some good candidates came in over the weekend, and our kitten department will be restocked today.  If and when I know more, I'll give you'll a update!

I got a really awesome update from Wendy and Patrick, who adopted our dear Hazel and Effie. It's always nice to hear those what those kittens are up to. They'll always be so special to us -- they were the first batch took in after sitting out a year because of Filbert's Panleukopenia. Also, the first litter that Wylla met.

First, lets take a look back at tiny Effie and Hazel.

Here they are today!



















And here's what their parents had to say:


Hello Laurie –

 Really long time. Sorry about that. Of course you are in our thoughts every day, because every day we are so thankful that Effie Pru and Hazel Ezzie found their way into our life!

We are all doing extremely well! We now live in Southern Oregon. The girls did just great during two moves. I’m sure Wylla let them know that travelling was really cool, so that was super helpful! (I over-worried for nothing; thank goodness!) As part of the move we upgraded to a king sized bed – and oddly enough, we still don’t have any more room: these two are experts at sprawling out to take up maximum bed area. The nerve!

They seem to be really enjoying their new home. We now have stairs, which they love to run up and down at the speed of light!!! They sound like a herd of horses, and yet, it’s just the two of them; stay out of their way! And Hazel Ezzie has become the best spider hunter in the area. Yay, little E! Oh the bugs in warm Southern Oregon…yuck!

They still so love each other. Oddly enough, Hazel Ezzie, little runt of the litter, is the calming influence when Effie Pru is in need - which is daily! But the sweet grooming head licks always seem to morph into neck biting and a bit of a scuffle…sisters…

Effie Pru’s colors are still changing. Lots more brown and taupe over the last year, and more recently quite a bit of peachiness. Hazel Ezzie remains the same as when a kitten with her cute little white spots and peachy paws, and those all-knowing, please-love-us-we-need-you eyes. Not to be fooled by her super sweetness. She definitely has a wild and sassy side. When she gets a wild hair, even Pru looks at her like she is crazy and gets out of the way, as she does laps around the house at full speed batting at everything in sight. She has a blast pulling her cat blanket around the house with her little baby teeth. What a nut. 

We still aren’t the best photographers (sadly; because these girls should have the best), but have, nonetheless, attached some recent photos.

Your baby girls have grown into the most beautiful and lovely cats, whom we love beyond love!

Do hope all is well with you, Craig, Bean and Wylla, and all those lucky itty bitty kitties!

Warmest purrs,

Patrick & Wendy & Effie Pru & Hazel Ezzie















Thank you so much fora sharing with us today, Patrick and Wendy.  What stunning creatures Effie and Hazel are! I can hardly believe how dark Effie has become.

We're happy to know they are loved so deeply and that they make your lives so happy. Please give them some pets from all of us and let them know we think of them often.  

And don't sell yourself short in the photography department! Your pictures are awesome!

  2. Adorable! It's always great to hear how well IBKC alumni are doing. These two definitely ended up in the perfect spot.

    I'm sure Hazel has no idea how all that toilet paper ended up on the floor...

  6. Awesome update! These two girls were special Itty Bitties who have grown into lovely ladies - even if they like a Wild Rumpus Romp around the house. Thanks for sharing, Patrick & Wendy. Love the pictures.

  8. I am in love with that space capsule thing one of them is resting in.

  9. Thanks for the update. When I upgraded from a full to a queen bed my cats still found a way to take up a lot of space. I love the second-to-last one where she has the "I didn't do it" expression.

  10. Oh my gosh, the back-to-back napping on the chair - LOVE! What a wonderful life you all have together.

  11. Semi-Siamoise's are always so pretty; and they often have the best of both parents; no shrill voice but talkative and having an opinion on everything, bouncers, rompers, and runners; they do love to be active; well it helps keep ones lithe shape trim and true, and most of all they have a true feline love of being adored, and adore you back, which is not always the case with true bred Siamese; THEY know they rule the roost and you exist simply to serve! I will always miss Saavik; a Semini-Siam who blessed our household for so many years with her intriguing ways.

    1. This is so true! For years we only had chocolate points but after a loss we 'settled' for a semi-Saimo brother/sister pair. They totally changed our minds about the breed. Now we also have a Saimo-Maine Coon, had a black shorthair and also have a feral Norwegian Forest Cat.

  17. Effie and Hazel were one of my favourite litters and I'm thrilled to see them looking so beautiful and plump and grown up. Effie has turned out to be much more of a tortie point than I was expecting... adorable!

  23. OK, so I may or may not have snorted at the toilet paper roll one.
