The Guy with the Smokey Jacket

Check out this little dude!

He's the most outgoing of the bunch, and we've already had some good snuggles. He's decided that belly rubs are OK.

His coat is just crazy -- there are parts that are solid black, solid white patches,  and smokey sections that are striped and ticked. He's got a dark stripe down his spine, and his tail is solid black. It's quite a complex suit he's wearing!

I'll be sharing some photos of the individual kittens over the weekend, and on Monday morning we'll kick off the naming rights auctions.




These pics don't really give his coat justice. I'll try to get some more so you can truly see it's beauty.

A friend of mine passed, and I'll be attending her memorial service today, so I won't be posting here or on the other social medias this morning or afternoon.

I'll try to share something later tonight.

We don't have a matching donation challenge today, but please know, whether we're working on a match or not, your donation is appreciated just the same.  It all helps!  So please don't be shy to give on these days without matches! Thanks!  


  1. Sorry to hear about your friend.

    That really is a smoking smokey jacket.

  2. My condolences for your loss. A friend of mine is attending a funeral of a family friend today as well.

  3. Sorry to hear about your friend.

    This kitten looks like he has fever coat, which I learned about from Foster Dad John when he had Ash. Ash's coat was very similar when he was that age.

    Can't wait to meet the other kittens!

  4. Sorry for your loss. Gail

  5. I am sorry for your loss Laurie.

  6. so sorry for your loss, denise

  7. I'm sorry for your loss. <3

    As for this little dude, what a coat!! It looks sort of Siamese-slash-Tuxie to my eyes. A Tuxamese? Siaxedo?

  8. All my sympathy for the loss of your friend.

    I saw a beautiful chocolate smoke cat at our local shelter today. The effect was much like this sweet kitty here, except a rich brown.

  9. *hugs* hope your day isn't too hard and glad that you have sweet kittens to come home to! Thanks for all the joy your kitten posts bring to my life <3

  10. I think his name might be "SJ", for "Smoky Jacket", "Superb Juvenile", "Super Jumper?". :-) Please be well!

  11. This guy is sporting quite the coat of varied coloring! It's quite gorgeous.

    I'm sorry about your friend. My mom's uncle died a few days ago, and calling hours at the funeral home are tomorrow. His funeral mass is Monday morning. One of his granddaughters' birthdays was Friday, and his wife's birthday is next week. xp

  12. The "leave a comment" function is behaving rally strange/different suddenly. Is there a change? Can you even see this? Probably not... Because I posted this, which I can't see being moderated?

    "He looks like a hedgehog!"

  13. I'm sorry for your loss, Laurie. I know it's a great comfort, for the low points in life, to have furry babies as balm for the Soul.

  14. So very sorry for your loss, Laurie. Hugs.

  15. It looks like he might have fever coat. Do we know anything about his mom?

    1. I did have that thought -- but we don't know anything about their mom or history.
