I'm having second thoughts about showing it to Iris. I'm afraid she'll think she finally has some fun kitties to play with, and then be disappointed when they "go away."

ETA: "Fun kitties" as opposed to old, lazy Hammy and Cheetoh.

Well that just sounds like a good excuse to leave Kitten Academy on all day everyday!

Hal just can't enjoy his favorite comfy spot without interlopers barging in and making things difficult.

Reporter Saturday Is Moving Day

S'mai bawb:

I was watching the Fish live stream last name and it looks like Saturday is moving day at Kitten Academy.
  • Star and the three Coffee Cat kitten graduates will be leaving for their new homes. Star and Mocha have been adopted by the same people
  • The two remaining Coffee Cat kittens will have the run of the house until they graduate.
  • Angel and the Fish will be moving into the big room.

Unfortunately, tonight's fifteen-minute Fish close-up live stream will be the last edition. But since they'll be in the big room, there'll be 24/7 wide-screen coverage of all their antics.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Working the main room" ab Arthur

Hey, maybe we'll pick up some new members.

Welcome, any lurking kittens!

Awww... "Mister Academy" just came into the main room and crouched down, picked up little Mocha, and gave him hugs and cuddles. Mocha is one of the Coffee Cats who's getting adopted out today.

That's probably why I couldn't be a kitten foster... I'd want to keep them all!

Well, the Angel and the Fish are in the main room now and everything has been rearranged a bit. All of the toys the kittens are familiar with have been moved in there with them. I assume it's because their scent would be on them and the move to a new location wouldn't be as traumatic among familiar toys.

Hello Kitty

I just watched the "phone stream" they did last night, and there are some interesting bits of news.

They should be getting a new momcat this weekend, named Misty. The new momcat will only be able to come to the Kitten Academy if the 3 remaining Coffee Cats leave for their adoptions. I wonder if her kittens will be named after weather patterns?

Also, someone has offered to create a Kitten Academy theme song, and they will soon be accepting ideas for lyrics, themes, etc. They'll be announcing the contest on their website soon.

Yes, there could be more little kittens at the Academy soon.

The other bit of news that struck me was that Angel (i.e., Fish Mom) could be going back to her old home on the weekend (after being spayed).

The sad news of the night was Mr. A wearing toe socks

Yes, I agree with you. If an organization gave me kittens, puppies, little hamsters, baby wildebeests or whatever to foster, they would only get the animals back when they pried them from my cold, dead hands. I know that there are a number of people on this board who do foster cats, dogs and ebil greyhounds, and I admire them very much for what they do to improve the lives of these animals and prepare them for futures with loving families. But I'm afraid that I'd just get too attached.

I tuned in this evening to watch kitties bouncing off the furniture and there was a note on the YouTube page saying that Misty isn't pregnant after all. So no new kittens

Goldfish Fish In A Basket

How many fish can you fit into one basket on a cat tree?



All of them, apparently (though figuring out which parts belong to which Fish can be a bit of a challenge).

By the by, I suspect that the FSI ("floof per square inch") factor above exceeds recommended industrial standards in most of the civilized world
