Well, we knew it was going to happen.  OK, all of us except Emma - she was a little surprised. MOL

Mom came home the other night with our first "official" group of newbies for 2013. We have had a couple of spares that were moving around (Judy and Nurdle) but this is our first momma and kittens of the year.

Mom took the crate into the bathroom to get them set up and Emma followed her - cause THAT is where dinner is served. She and mom went around a few times before mom could get the door closed with Emma on the outside. (mom here: that kitten is slippery.....  haha)

A good samaritan brought in this group. Seems one of his neighbors moved out and left mom and the kittens in an apartment. The guy was concerned as it appeared mom wasn't caring for the kittens. They were separated when they first came in cause mom was acting like she was angry with the kitts. Well, mom ate 2 and 1/2 cans of food before slowing down. The rescue lady then reintroduced the kittens and mom was fine with them.

 momma cat - Mist (and yes, she needs a sammich or four)

trying to put the whappy paw on Emma (out of the shot)

kitten tetris

They are all boys. Mom thinks one of the black ones may have very faint stripes....we think she is gonna have a hard time telling them apart. No names yet....she is still working on that part of it. The tuxie is the bravest of the crew but we suspect within a couple more days the boys will be all over mom. Mist is a nice girl and loves her chin scritched. :)

Mom spent more time with the boys last night and they are FULL OF IT!!!  All over and biting her. She is leaning toward naming them after peppers.....more on that when she figures it out.  :)


  1. Poor things. We're glad they're under your care now. Mist is a lovely looking ladycat, and such long whiskers! We're glad she's fine with her babies now (just was starving!).

    Purrs to them all!

  2. Oh Emma, there you go, Mom brought you some toys and they are alive. Those kittens are so cute. Hope the Mom gets plenty to eat and we know she will at that Random Felines. Hope all have a great day.

  3. Heavens - no wonder she didn't want them near her. She was starving! Poor thing. They are precious.

  4. Poor girl was starving! :( We're so happy she's now safe with you.
    We like the idea of naming them after peppers!

  5. Welcome, little ones and Mom too! You couldn't have landed in a better place!

  6. We are so happy that the Mom has a few good meals in her now! We bet she will become more and more maternal once she plumps up even more :)
    Thanks for taking them in!

    the critters in the cottage xo

  7. What a cute family! So glad they are being cared for now... and by an expert!

  9. Hooray for you taking care of that new batch!

  10. Oh poor kitties! How can you move and leave the cats in the apartment? What are they supposed to do, eat dry wall? (Leo does, but I dont think he thinks it's tastey!) I'm glad you got them, and goodness, momma there was probably angry at the kittens because there was nothing left to feed them, poor baby!

  11. Awwwww poor mama kitty was hungry! Bad bad BAD people to abandon this gorgeous vulnerable family!:-(

    So glad they are safe now!! Take care

  12. If there is any justice in this world, the owners that left Mist behind is missing several sammichs!

  13. Oh poor momma cat! She was starving!! We're so glad that momma and her kits will be taken care of.


We love to hear from you.....
