Introducing…..

June 3, 2013

We stopped by PetSmart Sunday to get all the news.  Friendly Sambo and adorable Lucy were adopted.  Quiet Missy and shy Pearl went back to see the vet.

Why did we have to stop by on Sunday for news?  Because we weren’t there Saturday, because we were picking up and installing some fosters in our “spare” room.

Please meet Honey, and her three boys:  Skippy, Jif, and Peter Pan.

Honey seems to be a fairly young mom – she arrived at the shelter weighing just under seven pounds, and she’s not just a scrawny nursing mom, she’s petite.  And so friendly – this girl not only doesn’t mind if we play with her babies, she’s all cuddly herself.

None of her three boys look like her at all – isn’t that funny? Here you see Peter Pan on the left, with the black face, Skippy toward the back going “zzzzzzzzzzzz”, and Jif in front with the white ear tips, having a little wash.

The kittens are about four weeks old, and arrived at the shelter weighing between 0.8 and 0.9 pounds. Between Honey’s excellent care and a day of free feeding from big bowls of kitten food (which they are already pros at eating), they’ve all broken the one pound mark.

We have various cardboard boxes around the room, and Skippy decided one of them was a good place for a kitten to catch a snooze.

Because it’s not all that brightly lit in the room, I’m forcing myself to use flash to take pictures of them, so I hope the photos will improve. Because really, we can’t let all this tiny cuteness go to waste! Stay tuned as the boys work toward achieving two pounds so they can begin to charm potential adopters.

    Hey, those aren’t cardboard boxes, they’re cat traps. 😉

    I love the names – and they are ADORABLE!
