Latest friends

Our current crop of babies: Mom (Purrsimon) and three kittens, about a pound and a quarter each when we got them.

Say hello to Poptart, Periwinkle and Pirate.

Pirate on his own. He has a foot fetish -- do not come in with bare feet!

Poptart gave us a scare -- in the four days the others added two ounces, he lost half an ounce. This is not acceptable kitten behavior. Turned out that a little KMR got him back on track. Good morning, kitties! They are so adorable when they all pass out nursing. And so easily confused upon waking...
Periwinkle has a literary bent.

Here you will find pictures of these cats which we want to share with friends, coworkers and strangers.

This batch was from January of 2008; a mom with six kittens. She was skinny and tired, but very sweet and loved us immediately. Her name is Minerva:

This is Custard:




Dale (after Dale Cooper):

And Bermuda:

They did all the usual kitten things. They had a voracious appetite for their own tails:

Mastered the "Cat Loaf" stance quickly:

And generally hung around daring anything to be cuter than they were:
