kitten update

Marzen - our brown tabby boy

Sapporo - he has longer white socks on his back legs

the orange collection
Peroni (our only girl) is eating
Harp is the one on the bottom with more white
Kilkenny is the one with more orange

Kiri - notice the french manicure on his back toes

Mom mentioned the names to a friend the other day who pointed out that it might be funnier to name the orange/ginger kittens after the Irish beers. Ummm...yep. So, since mom has just started using names anyhow, she switched the oranges and tuxedos. The orange boys are pretty easy to tell apart immediately. The tuxedo boys take a second as their faces are very similar.

Peroni and Kiri are by far the friendliest of the kittens. Kilkenny and Sapporo are coming around. Harp and Marzen are playing hard to get for the moment.

Carling is actually doing better in the crate. She is much calmer and friendlier. Mom got her in yesterday to the clinic to get her spayed. The clinic thinks she is about 5 years old and she weighed 5.5 pounds. The good news is her life gets better from here.

So, for now it is all about spending time with the little kittens and get them friendly and bigger. They are doing pretty well otherwise. The two tiniest - Peroni and Kiri are screamers though which is fairly funny.

We do have weights:
Peroni 13 3/8 ounces
Kiri 14 3/8 ounces
Sapporo 1 pound 5 3/4 ounces
Harp 1 pound 1 3/4 ounces
Kilkenny 1 pound 8 ounces
Marzen 1 pound 3 7/8 ounces


  1. Carling does look happier.Glad she is calming down some. Those kittens are just adorable. Have a great day.

  2. Carling is beautiful; here's hoping the spay helps her to relax!
    The kittens are all as cute as can be!

  3. I'm glad to hear that Carling is calming down - hopefully she will get even better once she's gotten rid of the hormones.

  4. The kittens are so cute. And we’re glad Carling is calming down and now is spayed.

  5. 5.5 pounds? Such a tiny thing! Yes, life gets better from here for her!

  6. They're so cute! And hooray for Carling settling down a bit. :)

  7. That's good to read that Carling is improving. She was a bit of a worry, eh?

  8. I pray that Carling gets adopted. I live in the canary Islands and have a kitty here. It was really hard to get him here from the USA where I was living last year. I sincerely believe that every kitty deserves a home and that little Carling will find one. ♥️


We love to hear from you.....
