Mom is taking the weekend to get packed up and ready for Blog Paws in Nashville. She is pretty excited to see all our blogging friends. As you know, we don't travel, but mom plans to take, we have a question:
Who from the fiesta kittens would you like to see attend Blog Paws???

We make no guarantees that mom will take whomever you suggest, but we would love to hear who you think and why.....
And we have a flashback for this Friday: a certain group of kittens turns 3 years old today. Happy Birthday to the original alcohol kittens: Whiskey, Gin, Moonshine and Bourbon

turkey turkey

We were sent come treats from, but as always, our opinions are our own. Or in this case, the opinions of shelter cats.  MOL

Mom asked for the Dr. Tim's Turkey Chips this time. These are just freezed dried turkey hearts sliced into pieces. The pieces were a little bit for the cats, so mom broke them into chunks, and that was pretty easy.

Puma is a 3 year old house panther who is very sweet. He took the treat right from mom's fingers.

Sammy isn't even a year old yet. And so super sweet - he loves to give head butts. Mom first gave him an entire treat which he couldn't quite eat. When mom went to take it back to break it up for him, he wasn't sure he wanted her to have it back.

This is Sardine. She is a 4 year old girl found covered in mud under a bush by a good samaritan. She is front declawed and was probably the only one in the room that didn't seem all that interested in the treats.

This is Whiskers. This handsome 2 year old boy was also found outside wandering around on his own. And he LOVED the treats. In fact, he got out of his cage and mom used them to lure him back.

Cougar is about 18 months old and has placed to go and things to do. But he stopped in his tracks for these treats and even followed mom around his room asking for more.

Bermuda is a 4 year old girl who has been at the shelter for a while. She is social though on her own terms. That being said, she was certainly open to a good turkey bribe.

The container was much bigger than mom expected and there were certainly treats left over. She said she is going to take them back with her tonight and give them out again (mom volunteers Tuesday and Thursday every other week). Heck, mom even used them to lure a girl cat out from behind the copier when she escaped from an office. MOL

Now all we have to do is convince her to share with US!!  haha

weekend adventures

We don't blame Spud for spending his weekend like this (or at least Saturday morning). We had the hots here again causing mom to close the windows and turn on the cool air thingy. Spud is a smart boy - the ladder is right near one of the floor blowers.

Normally mom isn't supposed to take kittens to adoption events that aren't ready for adoption. However, it was a BUSY weekend for the rescue with several other events so mom said the heck with it and took Salsa and the girls. They were a big hit and did very well for their first time in public. Played quite a bit, took a nap (or two) and charmed the public.
These girls are available for adoption at the Petco store through another rescue. They are both about 8 months old and had a great time watching the kittens play.

Otherwise, nothing too exciting.

fiesta kittens: 6 weeks old

They are getting bigger and more active. Fortunately no one has made it over the gate yet, but certainly not for lack of trying. Margarita is a bit mouthy with everyone here, so the gate is up and the door is open only when mom is at home to supervise.
However, with more activity, comes the time when kittens are less likely to hold still for pictures.... thus insuring that most pictures now are of them sleeping. MOL

But, on to the weekly weigh-ins:

1 pound 3 3/4 ounces
still our littlest kitten

1 pound 4 3/8 ounces

1 pound 8 3/4 ounces

1 pound 11 5/8 ounces
our current front runner for heavyweight

1 pound 7 1/2 ounces
he refused to look at the camera - take what you can get

Taquito is down a little bit from last week. There is a reason mom doesn't weigh them every day - it would make her nuts. As the kittens are getting more active, it becomes a battle of calories in and calories out. There isn't much of a difference from last week so mom isn't too concerned. She has now caught everyone eating on their own, so that will help.
