One day when my daughter was little, we drove past a house with a bunch of black kittens in the window. We drove around the block several times and never were quite sure how many there were.

Hello Kitty The Furry Horde Has Arrived

S`mai bawb:

Well, the mass of kittenhood has arrived at KA. The younger kittens seem to be white and grey (which matches one of the momcats to a T). There are also a number of slightly larger black kittens that match the other momcat. There are also a few oddballs in the lot (such as a large grey kitten with white socks).

Final headcount: 13 kittens & two momcats

All I can say is that DJ`s going to have a lot of fun naming this lot

Ta ra `wan,

Ieuan `The Cats`In The Cradle`ab Arthur

15 . . . 14 . . . 13 . . .

As long as the next time we hear it isn't 12 . . . 11 . . . etcetera!

(It would indeed be very difficult to count a mass of 13 kittens all in together.)

I'm already in love with at least one of the younger fluffballs. I'd probably take him/her already if I could (I can't).

Sneeze

And the URI returns. The little kitten I adore so much (temporarily named "Gizmo" by the Discord chat) was sneezy and listless today. She and her brother went to the vet for a check, where the URI was discovered.

Her brother appears fine, but little Gizmo will be moved to the master bath to separate her from the others while she's being treated.

From what I gathered from the chat and the Live Stream, she arrived with it... along with fleas. These were all barn cats and all of them have fleas. She in particular has been a pretty miserable kitten even before arriving at KA, but she's getting the treatments she needs.

She certainly got a lot of free 'travel time' once DJ got home from being out of town for a few days. 'Gizmo' (now officially Eucalyptus, or just 'Euki') was the first cat she went for when she entered the main kitten room for the first time since the new class arrived.

Putting faces to the names:




Gingko has been moved to the master bathroom to be with Euki and Berry. I didn't catch the exact explanation on the Kitten Close-Up (and I seem to be stuck in "no man's land" on the Discord chat), but it seemed to be to keep the youngest kittehs together for now while Euki is getting her steam treatments.

Falafel will go to her adopter at 10:00 AM KATZ (Kitten Academy Time Zone) today (Sunday, Oct 1), the boys will 'graduate' on Tuesday along with 11 of the new class. It sounded to me like On Angel's Wings was finally receiving some promising applications for Baba and Hummas. Tahini already has an approved adopter.

One of the mods should give you access to the other chat rooms, listed over on the left of the screen. I couldn't get out of the Lobby chat until someone gave me access to the other rooms.

I could get to any of the channels with no problem. The problem started when my own kitty traipsed across the keyboard while I was logged in and pressed the 'refresh' key... and god knows what else... for the browser window.

It logged me out, and took me to the login screen. Now I can't get back in again. It isn't complaining about username or password (unless I intentionally misspell them), it just goes back to the login screen.

Edit: NM, I just tried again. I'm in!

That's a story you should share in the chat! Normally only mods can boot out users, but your cat figured out how to do it!

Hello Kitty Mass Graduation

S'mai bawb:

Tuesday is mass graduation date for the kittens at KA. All the momcats and most of the kittens are going for their snip, vaccination and chipping.


Mr. A said that the Purrsian boys will be going to the "new" vet while the Trees will be going to the On Angels' Wings vet.

With all this clipping and snipping going on, Mr. A should be very careful or his next kitten live stream may be as a falsetto

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Sing High" ab Arthur

Euki is my current favorite. All spotty and spiky-haired. <3

DJ was carrying him around yesterday in a apron pouch. He popped his head out and with his spiky hair, he looked like a real punk-rocker kitten.

I stand corrected. She is adorable. They all are, but I just love her little spiky punky face.

While on the topic of Euki, she effectively demonstrated her "just back away" technique on the closeup last night:

DJ wasn't doing the filming.
