Wordless Wednesday..... (or not)

(umm - you MAY want to turn down your volume - just sayin')

right to left:
Orbit, Aurora, Hubble and Nasa

halp!!!  kitten down!!!
not sure about which black kitten is which,
but we think that is Corona on the bottom of the pile

So, Rapuzel is such a good mommy. We know some of those kittens (we suspect the 2 black and the black and white) aren't hers and some of them are hers, but she doesn't seem to care. The only thing that really cracks mom up is that if Rapunzel is chilling outside the bed and one of the kitts gets out, she doesn't seem very motivated to get the kitten back in. Maybe cause in the week they have been here, she has realized that our mom is well trained and will come pick up screaming kittens. MOL

Mom is pretty sure about the 4 males, 4 females thing.  Here is the breakdown and names (if you have a suggestion for a name, let us know, this isn't set in stone quite yet except for Rocket):
   black and white - male - Rocket
   gray and white - female - Orbit
   black - male - Sputnik
   black - female - Gemini
              (can we get an "amen" that we got one of each gender for the same color)
   brown/white tabby (spot on her nose) - female - Corona
   brown/white tabby - female - Aurora
   buff tabby - male - Hubble
   buff tabby (more white on his face) - male - Nasa


  1. Love the video. We want to see some more of those little tiny kittens. Too cute. It won't be long and they will be out of there. So where is Triscuit??
    Have a great day.

  2. Those little kittens are adorable.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. They're so precious I don't even have words. OMC, the baby mews...::Sigh::

  4. sure enough, Oliver heard those cute kitten sounds and immediately perked up, as he tried to figure out where the kittens were! too cute!!

    Naming is not easy! I struggled to name one cat at a time, I can't imagine naming a whole litter!

  5. They're aaaaaalmost as loud as a certain new someone around here. wink, wink
    Play bows,

  6. *sigh* I could watch that video all day..

    with eight you are certainly going to be in for a boat load of work in a couple of weeks :)

  7. The astronomy theme is great; what about naming after the constellations? Aurora and Hubble are keepers, though.

  8. Baaaybeees! I don't know how anyone can foster kittens. I'd never want to turn loose of them!

  9. The babies weren't too loud for us kitties - we barely cocked an ear!

  10. nothin mor awesumer than a pile oh wee kittehz...N we likes yur names !!!

  11. That's adorable. Okay, we have to go and watch that again (and then again after that)! :)

  12. Mama thinks Orion would be a good name...since the Men in Black movie with the cat that wore a collar was named Orion!! "The galaxy is on Orion's belt."
    Much Luvums,
    The Slimmer PurrSibs
    Socks, Jack, Percy, Luna, & Golden

  13. My hoomin friend said they are so cute, her hed asplode. Me too. :)

  14. Attack of the Tiny Furrballs! Cuties, all.

    We kinda love Rapunzel's approach to parenting -- if no one's bleeding, everything's fine :-)

  15. Ah, the naming of kittens--where do you find a set of eight to name eight kittens after? What better than satellites! Goodness, Rapunzel is gorgeous.

  16. We think the names are great. Mom says that she thinks Orion would be better than Sputnik. She also likes Luna instead or Orbit; though, she knows that name has been used bunches. We were really curious, until you told us, about eight kitties and one mommy 'cause that seemed like a really big litter. So nice she doesn't mind raising all of them. Mom is so excited for for new babies since the snack pack is moving on. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  17. Holey smokes that's a lot of kitties! They sure is noisy, MOL.

    So mom Rapunzel does the feeding and cleaning of kittens, and your mom picks up kittens and kitten poop, MOL!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku


We love to hear from you.....
