In other news, Charlie seems to be doing well with his post-graduate cat work.

Roux, Claire, and Cro all waved their little paws goodbye yesterday! They're all off to their new forever homes. Claire and Cro are going together.

Tonight, a "mystery adopter" is coming to pick up the little big floof that is Garbonzo. Who is this stranger? Mr. A is hinting that it's someone special, but he's keeping it under wraps until the actual event.

Tune in to the Kitten Academy Live Stream tonight at 9 pm KATZ (Kitten Academy Time Zone, aka Central Time) to find out!

I don't know what was in that little bag Mr. A gave Garby a sniff at during the mailbag yesterday, but he sure disappeared in a hurry after he got a whiff of it.

Of all Chilli's beans, he was my favorite one to watch. It's like the gods of creation couldn't decide on a kitten or a baby sheep.

I wish them all well!

Hasn't Charlie grown? It's amazing to think that Charlie and the Fonts are now about eight months old. I sometimes catch a bit of Wednesdays with Winnie and Gary, and Gary in particular is one big cat - a capital Font, one might say

I see that the remaining Beans have been moved to the Annex and that the Purrsians were off to the vet today. Apparently KA is changing their strategy to get this long-running URI behind them. I wonder what effect this will have in getting the new Mom cat and four little white squirmies into KA. As these kittens are now about a week old, they should just be at the stage that their eyes are opening.

By the by, Roux's adopter has posted a number of pictures on Twitter and it looks like Roux is really enjoying all the scratches and pets she's getting in her new home.



Ta ra 'wan,

Oh, good.

I had to keep determinedly reminding myself that now is not the time for me to get yet another cat, and that Roux would certainly have a good home coming. Something about her really got to me. It's so good to see her clearly sdettled in and loving her new place.

Hello Kitty Garby's Mystery Adopter

S'mai bawb:

It turns out that Garby's mystery adopter is ... Trout!

Trout's adopters have now also adopted Garbonzo. And Trout came back to Kitten Academy to meet his new little brother.

Ta ra 'wan,

It looks like Garby's adooters stayed the night and spent today with the KA faculty and hoomans.

Garbonzo and Trout (for the second time!) just waved their paws bye-bye.

I tuned in to KA about noon today, saw Garbonzo and Tomato wrestling, and was wondering what was going on. Thanks for clearing up the mystery.

Fight Tomato vs Trout




Trout's grown into a handsome boy--even when he's in the 'bear attack' pose.

Mr. A just tweeted the new momcat will likely be taken in by another foster due to the ongoing URI issues.

So no new squirmies for a bit.

~Psihala
(*Hopeful that the URI problem will get resolved and Tomato and Kidney will be able to make full recoveries.)

Yes, Mr. A talked about it in last night's Kitten Closeup. Mr. A also framed the discussion in terms of the "sads policy." Reading between the lines (or perhaps completely misunderstanding what he said and inventing my own interpretation), it sounds like these newborn kittens are really being hit hard by the URI - they are from the same shelter as the Beans and the Purrsians - and it may be taking a toll.




With regard to the URI at KA, the Beans are fine and seem to be over the disease. They ship out to their new homes on Saturday. The Purrsians are still sniffing and sneezing, but are highly active and eating well (and running from Mr. in case he's going to give them another dose of medicine ).

I hope things go well for that momcat. It was probably hard for Mr. A given how much he loves Siamese cats to have a sammy momcat and four sammy squirmies. But I can see how it's for the best.

My husband thinks that the reason the Purrsians aren't getting many adoption applications is because of the URI. People are hesitant to adopt a known sick kitten. They have to adopt out the kittens so they can sterilize and get rid of the nasty bug, but they can't do that until the kittens are healthy, which isn't happening because they keep re-infecting each other. It's a sad catch-22...

Watching the Kitten Close-Up from last night and... aww, I think poor Elsie is jealous of all the attentions the kittens get!
