later to the whirlwinds

Tempest, Chaos and Mayhem all went back to the shelter last week. Looks like Chaos has already been adopted. Unfortunately, they posted them with their old (stupid) names. Mayhem is posted as "Butter" and Tempest is posted as "Temple." Oh well. Hopefully they will only be there a short time.

So, I took back 3, and came home with 5. Sheeze. I was never good at math! ;) I am taking Penny Lane and Trinket back today. Trinket has come a long way, and really revs up the purr engine when you pet her. Penny Lane is less friendly, and I am not sure why. She started out pretty laid back, but she was sick when I got her. She is doing great on the snotty nose end, all cleared up. Hopefully getting a room (cage) to herself at the shelter will help. And she is a really pretty cat, so she should get snatched up pretty quickly.

Penny Lane is a beautiful cat.

Trinket was in my lap when Angel climbed up and laid right on top of her.

So, we will be left with the newbies...5 very cute and sweet kittens, all of them sniffly. They came in all on Clavamox, but have finished the course. All are eating great, and seem fine otherwise. Lysine helps I think, and they get it daily.

We have 4 girls, and 1 boy.

Martha. She is tiny, and full of herself, as is her "twin" brother Stewart. No, I had no say in naming these guys! Stewart is funny, and a bit on the crazy side. Also the least sniffly of all of them. Both Martha and Stewart love attention.

Martha plots her next move.

Martha and Stewart attack the food cans.

Mary Kate and Ashley. Another set of "twins" and I really can't tell them apart yet. They look exactly alike to me, so the collar is the only way I can tell the difference. Both are cute, and neither are too keen on being held. Both are good eaters, and are a bit bigger than the others.

Angel. This little girl has stolen my heart. She is a BIG eater, but the littlest of the crew. I don't think she is related to any of the others, but was added to the clan when she came in. She is funny, and looks an awful lot like Bosley. As soon as she is done eating, she climbs up in my lap (with her messy face and feet...as she likes to stan in the food while she eats) to clean up, then she gets her front paws up on my chest and wants to climb up onto my shoulder. Very Bosley like. I want someone I know to adopt her, so I can see her regularly!

Sorry these photos are not so great. These were taken with my cell phone. I will get some better ones with my real camera soon.

Oh my - Angel DOES look like Bosley! She is so adorable - and sounds like a character like Bosley. I do indeed hope someone you know adopts her so we can ALL get updates form time to time!

Angel and Kirby said...

Very sweet babies! Good luck to those at the shelter!

I dropped off Penny Lane yesterday. Trinket was stuffy and drippy eyed, so I decided to keep her for a little longer. Of course this morning she was feeling great and creating all sorts of trouble for the littler guys! Oh well.

I also said hi to Tempest yesterday. She gave me a purr. Both Chaos and Mayhem have both been adopted.

Hey yeah, I can see Bosley in the little girl, too! Must be the 'tude.
May Tempest and Penny Lane be adopted by the next time you go back!
Well done.

Jamie, these kitties are the cutest! What a big heart you have. I'm so impressed. I know Martha and Stewart are funny names for cats (by the way, I think Martha is just the sweetest thing ever) but they kind of work. You know, like naming a dog...Kevin. It makes me laugh.

Thanks for sharing the kitties.
