Last night I witnessed an epic battle between two white-and-gray spotty kittens, and watched a very sleepy gray stripey baby half-heartedly chew on Mama's foot before zonking out.

Hello Kitty Latte Gets Home!

Hi All:

Latte, one of the "Coffee Cat" kittens, was originally scheduled for adoption, but it fell through. So for the last two or three weeks, Latte has stayed at Kitten Academy waiting for someone to adopt him. The adopters of his mother, Star, and his brother, Moche, stepped in to adopt Latte. Here is the video where Latte arrives at his new home and reunites with his mother and brother.



For the record, I want to make it perfectly clear that I did not tear up a bit while watching this video. It was my Spring allergies.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Hello, Mother" ab Arthur

That kitten needs a good washing!

-- at any rate, his mama seems to think so.

Mom might have been thrilled having Latte back, but I'm not sure Mocha was.

Maybe little Mocha remembers some of the tussles I remember him having with his brother on the livestream.

She looks like a certain feline I happen to know.

(And I keep forgetting it's fall in Australia now.)

Hello Kitty Hal - The Great Escapee

Yes, sleepy, mellow Hal has turned into a real breakout specialist. He has a great sense of timing and goes through the kitten room door almost as often as Mr. A. Though the other Fish have made a run for it from time to time, Hal's the grand master.

I notice that this has led to a new tradition at KA whenever Mr. A opens the kitten room door. After the door closes, there is a short pause. Then the door opens again with Mr. A carting Hal back into the kitten room

Ta ra 'wan,

That dog looks resigned but unhappy.

Oh no, not another kitten. Move the paw away, maybe it'll go somewhere else.


-- I wonder if the dog isn't at all interested in cats for cuddling or play, or whether it's just that there have been so many kitten introductions that those have turned into a sort of mildly unpleasant job for the dog?

Hello Kitty

The tiny kittens (which I call the Squirmies, since squirming was about all they could do until recently) are getting much more active! They're exploring the room, tentatively playing with toys, and even starting to wrestle with each other. So cute to watch them grow and develop!

Hello Kitty The Squints

Mr. A. refers to them as the "Squints."

Yes, they are starting to explore the world far away from the box. And on Thursday, their world is going to expand when they are moved into the big kitten room.

Also on Thursday, the Fish are going for their graduation (i.e., their shots, a chip and the gender-appropriate update to their naughty bits). When they come back, they'll recover in the small kitten room. They'll then have the run of the house for a day until their new staff come and pick them up on Saturday and take to their new homes.

Finally, as Mr. A and DJ are going on vacation for a fortnight, there won't be a new Momcat and teeny, tiny kittens for a bit. We'll just have to make due watching the squints learn how to cat until then

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "squinty eyed" ab Arthur

Yeah having the run of the house will certainly make Hal and Pom happy! They're always racing to get out of their room!

I keep wondering if Mr A & DJ have explained to Hal that Pom is going with him to his new home ... lol

Pom so enjoys giving Hal a rough & tumble time

& on a totally different note ... Acro's nameplate cracks me up every time I see it ... very clever of the person who sent it

& I really enjoy the faculty time during the nightly live streams

Hello Kitty The Fish Have Left The Building

All the Fish were picked up by their adopters today. Hal & Pom have been adopted together, while Haddie and Trout are striking out on their own. They were a fun family to watch grow from their birth up to their adoption.

Now we have the Squints to watch (including little Mandie who has decided that she likes her mother's solid food as a dietary supplement).

Ta ra 'wan,

Hello Kitty The Squints Channel Hal

S'mai bawb:

In last night's kitten close-up, Banjo & Lute tried Haldini's famous "rush the door" escape tactic. Lute actually succeeded in getting past Jimmy D - the person looking after the academy while Mr. A & DJ are vacation - but was stopped by a towel over a clotheshorse set up to prevent Momcat Song from seeing the faculty cats.



Go to 6:22 to view the Squints first (and rather cute) escape attempt.

Ta ra 'wan,

New kitten!!

Mr. A and DJ are back from vacation, and last night DJ went to On Angel's Wings for a new foster kitten.

They've named him Kazoo, and he's a skinny, energetic little tuxedo kitty.

Apparently they didn't leave Kazoo in the kitten room overnight. Good idea, I suppose, since they don't quite know how Song will be around him.

DJ just brought him in for a few minutes, and Song was hissing at him. I know introducing new cats to each other can be a process, and I'm sure it's even more of a process since Song seems to be a cautious, protective momcat. I hope she comes around and accepts Kazoo.

Edit: Kazoo videos!
