Rumor has it this is the new kitty due to arrive tomorrow...

That is one worried-looking kitten.

And I note the small print near the bottom of the photo says 'finally trapped the kitten.' So presumably kitten didn't want to be caught.

It's OK, kit! It's scary right now, but this will work out better for you in the end.

Another look at the new kitten arriving tomorrow c. 2:00 KATZ



Someone suggested that because she's the same colour as Ari and the last three kittens were named after birds, she should be called "Can-Ari"

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

Gracie's not quite sure yet what to make of the other five smols in the Annex. On one hand, she seems to want to play but on the other she hisses at the other kittens. But give it a day or two and they'll all be playing together, I'm sure.

Laine: Budgie is a floof-and-a-half, isn't she? And, as I understand that she already has an approved adopter, others agree.

Ta ra 'wan,

Default Euki & Elderberry Leaving

S'mai bawb:

Though they still seem so small, Euki and Elderberry have finished their classes at KA and are on their way to their new homes tomorrow (Saturday) at noon KATZ. Gingko is also leaving down to Texas to team up with Kazoomy.

For me, Euki and Elderbean have been the highlight of the Cat Trees class, and I'll be sorry to see them go. But they're off to good homes with loving people, so I can take solace in that.

But there are still lots of Cat Trees and Birbs available, so put your order in now to avoid disappointment

Ta ra 'wan,

I'll miss scenes like this when they've gone. They're really a bundle!

Maple ("Mini-Custaru") and Hickory (who looked to me so much like Maple I usually couldn't tell them apart) waved goodbye today as they were adopted together.

By my recollection, of the trees, that, er, leaves, Sassafras, Maggie, Fig, Hannah-Banana, Chestnut, and Juniper waiting for adoptees... a bit less than half of the original bunch.

Here's good-wishes for the two newest graduates, and hope for furever homes for those remaining in class.

Hannah-Banana waved goodbye today!

I'm also not sure of the status of Fig. She doesn't seem to appear on the list of kittens/cats that were still left, and I don't remember her being adopted, but may have missed it.

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

KA had a great Black Friday. Every one of the kittens / cats now has an adopter but Chestnut, Magnolia, Sassafras, Budgie and Finch. The adopters of the other kittens will be picking up their new fuzzballs over the next couple of weeks. So put in your adoption for a kitten now to avoid disappointment.

Here's a few news items from the last Kitten Closeup:
  • All Together Now: The smols have been moved into the main kitten room.
  • Next: With the annex now vacant, KA is looking into finding a new Mom cat - so there could be new itty bitty kitties in the near future.
  • Lunch To Go: Maggie stole Mr A.'s fish dinner the other day. As a result, after collecting bits of fish, Mr. A was picking cat hair out of this meal.

Ta ra 'wan,

So that's what the "Sworn destroyer of mice. Salmon thief!" tweet on her was about.

As Mr. A often says, Figgy is doing GREAT! She, like Maggie, has free run of the house. She had a bit of an eye problem, but modern veterinary medicine seems to have cleared it up. Mr A says that Fig has an adopter, but I haven't heard when she'll be picked up.

Juniper is rejoining Crabapple and Larch this weekend.

I'd gladly take Maggie or Finch (more likely, I'd adopt locally anyway), but I don't have the means and it would undo years of positive progress with Enoch since we lost his brother a few years ago.

Probably no mailbag tomorrow, as Mr. A is sick.

Also, new pregnant momcat on Thursday! She's an orange tabby. So, before too long, we'll have squirmies again!

S'mai bawb:

Some news from the latest KA blog post:
  • Inventory Reduction I: Juni and Bucky are now off to their new homes. As Psihala mentions, Juni will be linking up with her two brothers plus two other panthers. This means that the remaining Cat Trees (Chessie & Sassy) are now outnumbered in the Kitten Room by Graycie & the Birds.
  • Inventory Reduction II: Figgy, Finch & Wren are scheduled to leave for their new homes on the weekend of the 16th.
  • Nip & Tuck: On Tuesday, Graycie & the Birds are going for their graduation at the vet.
  • Inventory Increase: As mentioned by TGG, a new orange tabby momcat (from Kentucky) scheduled to arrive Thursday. The blog suggests that she is very young.
  • Available Inventory:Magnolia, Budgie, Sassafras, and Chestnut still need adopters.
  • Smile:The blog also has some new pictures of the kittens (plus bonus Else, the cat retriever, and Creepy Reindeer).

On a related note, Mr. A seems to be getting over his sneezes and wheezes. Hopefully he'll be back to normal soon.

Ta ra 'wan,

Bonsai Kitten

The new momcat is here! She's a little thing, like Roux.

She seems cuddly and snuggly, at least for the brief time Mr. A was in there filming tonight's Close-Up. She's been hanging out a lot in the cat tunnel in the Annex, but she's also been exploring and climbing the cat tree in there. No name yet as far as I know.

In related news... We're gonna have squirmies again soon!
