Byron and Minny

April 18, 2013

We have not yet had any litters of tiny babies – isn’t that odd?  I was sure that by April we’d be inundated with kittens again, but so far we have not been.  We had one pair of youngsters who were four months old or so, and now we have another pair of half-grown youngsters.  These two are probably a little older – five months or maybe six.

Byron was playful and outgoing, and Minny was extremely shy and stayed in her cage while her brother went off to fool around.


See her tipped ear?  They both have tipped ears.  I’m not sure whether that means they were originally born to a feral mother on the street, or whether there are some shelters that do that when they neuter?  They are not feral despite Minny’s shyness.


Byron didn’t particularly want to be held and carried around, but he didn’t refuse petting, and he LOVED to play.  When he got a toy in his mouth he’d immediately begin an indiscriminate growling – whether there was any other cat in sight or not.




Hm, do I have them, or do they have me??





I love my fishies!


These are all MINE.  You go away.


They got me!

    Did you test Minny’s hearing? It looks like her eyes aren’t blue, but she might still be deaf, and that would contribute to her being scared.

      Leslie, she’s much better this week although still not as outgoing as her brother, and she woke up from her nap when I put the key into the lock on her cage, so I think not deaf….
