the circus is in town!

Not really, but it seems like a circus at itty bitty central! The cougars went back to the shelter Wednesday, and I actually came home empty handed. It worked out well, as I really needed to scrub down snot city before we got any more kittens. Last night I picked up 7 more itty bitties! They have been dubbed, the Circus! They are full of energy, and seem to love their new diggs. There is a lot more room in there than in the small cages at the shelter.

This crew came with names...some I like, most not so much. They gave the patch tabbies "P" names, and that is just not going to stick. Panda, Polar and Pandora. The other 4 are names Colonel, Sanders, Popeye and Wendy. Took me a minute to see the connection...all fast food related names. Nope, that's not going to happen either.

From left to right, Major, Vegas and Reno.

Major stretches out.

So, Panda becomes Major, Polar becomes Vegas, Pandora becomes Reno.
Colonal is going to keep his name, and Popeye is going to become Sergent, Sanders is going to become Dallas, and Wendy will be Albany. A mix of military ranking, and cities.

Dallas does his impression of Marty McFly in Back to the Future.

Dallas looking tough as he takes on the shiny string.

Sergeant plays with the jingle ball.

Albany gives Colonel a bite, while he grabs a bite.

Sergeant prepares for the big Catzilla Dallas is getting ready to deliver from the right.

Albany looking quite innocent.

Colonel looking the part...Bossy.

In the mean time, Diego is still up on the shelter's website, but I walked all through there yesterday, and I didn't see him, so I think he has been adopted. As of this morning, John Cougar (Still listed under his former name, Jesse) and Jessica were on the site (With old photos) but Justine was not. I hope that means she got adopted!

Here's a blast from the past. Joy went to visit her sister and took the camera and snapped this picture of Spats. She is really a beautiful girl.

Waahoo! The Circus is in town! They are just adorable, Jamie! Can't wait to watch them grow. The pics were priceless (and well captioned... LMAO over the Colonel... he does, he does!). Fingers are crossed for everybody still at the shelter.

How old is this crew, by the way?

Lisa, these guys are about 5 or 6 weeks I think, although the patch tabbies look a bit older, but slimmer. The 4 "younger" ones came to the shelter with a mama. She is a beautiful and very vocal tortie, and I understand this is her 3rd litter. Shame. But the good news is, the people that own her are having her spayed, and are taking her back home! Yay! Her little guys won't have any trouble finding homes.

Oh, very good... I'm glad mama has a forever home. Don't know the story behind three litters, but that is a shame. When I hear, "Oh, she got pregnant again before we could get her spayed," it just makes me want to scream. So preventable.

Both batches mix it up to make one cute crew!!

What a handsome group. I particularly like Ms Albany but I am a total sucker for tortie cats.
