Marilyn's kittens

Well, mom can't seem to get her hands on Fiona's kittens on a regular basis, so she is getting her tiny baby fix from Marilyn. Mom took Marilyn and her kittens thinking that it might be a good backup for Fiona's kittens depending on how things are going with having a feral mom in a crate. So far Fiona is doing a good job taking care of her kittens, but it is hard to monitor their weights and health when mom can't get her hands on them (unless they walk up to the front of the crate voluntarily....which they do on occasion). That said, Fiona is getting a little more grumpy too, so mom may try over the weekend to see if a) the kittens are eating on their own and/or b) if Marilyn will take on 3 more kittens and everyone is getting a decent meal.

In the meantime, we have determined that Marilyn's kittens are both boys. Mom did some searching on the internet and discovered that Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell did a movie together called "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes". And so we introduce you to....

Monroe and Russell

Their ears have started to stand up and they are getting move active. Mom put a big box in the bathroom and they haven't figured out how to escape yet - probably much to the relief of Marilyn. They do seem to enjoy slapping each other and chewing on each other - which will stop being fun when they get more mobile and get teeth....hahaha

your toes smell funny

gotta keep it clean


  1. Awww!!! And so sweet to watch tiny tots grooming.

  2. What cute little kittens and I would love to be able to give them lots of cuddles.

  3. "How to Marry a Millionaire" with Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable has also been one of my favorites, however 'Russell' is definitely one of my favorite kitty names (cat blog William of Mass Destruction has an Angel cat Russell)...ooh, these guys are cute!

  4. They are so precious, and we love their names! Mom loved that movie as well. It's a classic! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  5. Your mum had to look it up on the internet to know about "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"? Shame on her. We'll forgive her considering the cuteness of the kittens.

  6. OMG! They are adorable!
    Have a super weekend...

    Noodle and crew

  7. Oh they are so tiny! The cute is on overload.

  8. I always find it amusing that cats actually enjoy being chewed on by a sibling.. even if they have teeth.

    Nice name choice


We love to hear from you.....
