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.
