I don't usually like watching the "goodbye" waves from the kittens, as I find them kind of sad, but Toast more than made up for it with his 'What the--?' reaction:

New momcat!




She also has 3 kittens from a recent other litter that will be coming to the Academy in a few days or so.

Default Tails Exploring

S'mae bawb:

It seems that in just a few days, Fable's Tails have gone from squirmies to active smols. They're now exploring outside of the box and seeing the world (or at least the kitten classroom):

They've adjusted to the changes, methinks.

New momcat got named today. Her new name is 'Verse'.

Her previous litter also arrived at the Academy today, but their names haven't been announced yet.

That is a lot of cat. Here's hoping to a lot of healthy kittens.

Icon106 Cro Alarm

S'mai bawb:

Here's a blast from the past. If you were watching KA about this time last year, you might remember Cro, one of Roux's kittens. If you do remember Cro, you'll remember that any time anyone touched him, the "Cro Alarm" would go off. Here's a video by Cro's adopter of Cro yesterday and today.

Warning: You may want to turn your speakers down:

That was great, but made me glad I had the speakers very low on my machine. It looks like Cro found the right person.

Default 10 Kittens?

S'mai bawb:

I was watching the latest closeup stream yesterday and Mr. A said that Verse may be carrying as many as 10 kittens. The vet won't be sure until about a fortnight before the kittens arrive as that's when their bones will have enough density to show up on an x-ray.

If there are 10 kittens and all goes well, this will surpass the current KA record of seven kittens delivered by Hazel (i.e., Hazel's Seven).

If there are 10 kittens, I feel a little sorry for Verse. First giving birth to so many kittens, then having to take care of them. I also feel sorry for Mr. A as he'll be quite busy give supplemental feedings to the newborns as Verse doesn't have enough spigots for such a large number of kittens.

On a related note, Mr A is really pushing to get Verse's current litter of three kittens adopted before the new kittens arrive. So if anyone is looking for one or more independent-minded kittens, you can fill out an adoption form on the KA website.

Ta ra 'wan,

Nine kittens out of that little cat and delivery should be carefree?!

I sure hope so. Good luck, Verse! at least you'll be well cared for, with help available if need be.

S'mai bawb:

Just a little announcement news: Prose, one of Verse's older kittens, has an adooter. She's going to become Waltz's little sister.

DJ has hinted that there is more adoption news in the works.

Another adootion announcement: Ink of the Tails has been adooted ... by Falafael

KA is doing very good in customer retention. Two adoptions in a week by alumni. Maybe they're having a loyal customer promotion

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

Yet another KA alumni is adopting a student from his Alma Mater. Babaganoush is adopting Stanza. So that's two of the Purrsians who are getting a new sibling. That only leaves Meter of Verse's big smols without an adooter.

Parchment of the Tails also has an approved adooter (though not anyone currently in service to a KA alumni). That only leaves Fable and Quill without adooters.

It's good to see these adoptions (especially before Verse's 10 or so smol smols arrive).

Maybe people are figuring out that having two kittens is actually easier than having one kitten.

(Two kittens entertain each other.)

ETA: as well as entertaining the humans, of course.
