Is it Friday yet?

December 8, 2016

Spencer wants to know if it’s time for him to have a home.

“Where are they?”

“This clock must be wrong.”

spencer11

“Gilbert, do you think it’s wrong?”

spencer10

“Tell them to hurry up, please.”

spencer12

“I can’t wait forever.”

Kitten Wednesday

December 7, 2016

We’re still stocked with kittens – it was a very mild fall, so it’s not surprising.  Who would have anticipated that climate change would lead to the birth of more kittens?  Sigh.

There was this adorable little pair – they were too lively and squirmy to tolerate being held, so they played in their playground.

And there were these two brothers.  The black one must have played hard all morning because he was content to nap the afternoon away.

The tabby one wanted to see everything that was going on, from a comfortable perch.

Play

December 6, 2016

With Gilbert out and about, the boys kept right on playing.  Joey and Steve have always known how to enjoy themselves, and Spencer is keeping up with them.  The new cat scratcher toy was a big hit.

Shoelaces were also a big hit, both with kittens and with Spencer.

Gilbert

December 5, 2016

Adopted last week: Logan!  and Shadow.  We’re so happy Logan has finally gone on to a new horizon.  I hope she has playmates there.

This little gentleman, about six months old, was sleepy and looking sad when we arrived.  He had a bad upper respiratory infection when he was small, which evidently scarred one of his tear ducts, leaving him with a permanently runny eye.

For awhile, we let him be, letting out the big time players and looking in on the kittens.  When we finally got around to paying attention to him, he turned out not to be a sad guy at all.  We washed his face and let him out to run around.

He proceeded to mingle nicely with the other guys, and play with all the things.

He also investigated all the things.

If you can’t tell by the number of pictures I took of him, I was very taken with him.  He was absolutely the sweetest guy – mixed well with the others, but also loved to be petted and paid attention to.  If we can just keep his face clean, he’s sure to charm somebody.

Even though cats have been coming and going, we still have a nice core group of six to twelve month old cats who love to play together.  It’s fun to be in the cat room when all around you are cheerful cats playing harmoniously. play10 play7 play8 play9

Out of the shadow

November 30, 2016

This super-shy little guy improved so much in a week.  He hid from everyone and everything when we first met him.  A week later, he was purring, playing, and interacting with people who stopped to look in on him.  He won’t be there long.

His left eye is just a little squinty and runny.  We would rather see him stay with us than have to leave just when he’s feeling confident, so we hope that clears up.  A family came by wanting a pal for the kitten they’d adopted three weeks before, and were smitten by this guy, but oddly, they had an allergic reaction to him.  I guess some cats produce more allergens than others.

Spencer, on his own

November 29, 2016

Spencer the tuxie guy is by himself now, since his brother was adopted last week.  He does well out and about playing with Logan, Joey, and Steve, and he’s also super friendly to the humans.

He has this interesting sprinkling of white in his black fur.

He’s inquisitive.

And he wants to be paid attention to, he’s good at purring.

He’d be a great fit for a home with another young cat who wants a playmate.
