The tops of her toes are definitely mixed. I suspect I also saw mixed-up toe beans. She's a wonderfully mixed-up kitty in general.

Add Budgie to the list as she now has an adooter. She's also scheduled to leave this weekend. Unfortunately it looks like Finch won't be leaving this weekend as she's running a bit of a temperature and is off to the vet. As the adooter is local to the KA area, they'll pick up Finch once she's back up to speed.

So, of the Cat Trees and Birds (along with a few other recent arrivals), that only leaves Maggie, Chessie, Sassie and Cashew on the "need an adopter" list.

Yes, I hope that we may see a cavalcade of colours in her kittens.

Default Graycie Needs An Adooter

Hi All:

Mr. A announced on tonight's kitten closeup that Graycie's adoption has fallen through and she needs a new adopter. So if you're looking for a very cute grey kitten, here's your chance.

Ta ra 'wan,

Cashew has a need to knead!




I bought a thick pillow for my kitty some time ago that came to be known as the "dough pad". It's a completely impassable obstruction that he simply cannot make it across without stopping for a good five minutes and kneading at it, and then backing himself off of it.

It's the only time he ever does it.

Hello Kitty Happy Birthday, Charlie

S'mai bawb:

Charlie, the foster Font, turned one year old yesterday. One of the people on the Patreon chat made a short video for the occasion:

Charlie has his own Twitter account, and every so often his "adooter" will share a tweet on the official KA Twitter page (https://twitter.com/kitten_academy). If the latest tweet is any indication, he's adored by his pet human and is doing quite well.

In other news, Quiche Lorraine is one step ahead of how playtime goes at my own household with Enoch. The major difference is there is no long pause between tossed toy and eventual reaction... because the latter never happens.

Hello Kitty Finch Left Today, Graycie Tomorrow

S'mai bawb:

A single adoption is turning into a double header. Finch's adopter came today and picked Finch up. She also fell in love with Graycie while at KA and is coming back on Saturday to pick Graycie up. So that will the last of the smaller kittens gone.

That only leaves Maggie, Chessie, Sassie and Cashew without adopters.

Ta ra 'wan,

Cashew now has an adopter who is scheduled to pick her up on Saturday. That will leave only the sisters (Sassy and Chessie) in the Kitten Classroom.

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

K/A is 0 for 2 lately with pregnant momcats. It turns out that Quiche Lorraine pulled the same trick as Cashew to get into KA. She went in to the vet today to check on an eye issue. While she was there, the vet did an x-ray and an ultrasound to see how many kittens to expect, and, guess what, no kittens on board.

So no Quichelettes on the horizon.

So Lorrie is now going to be scheduled to go for a spay, and if you would like to adopt a trickster, KA would be glad to see your application.

Ta ra 'wan,

Is this the same vet that "confirmed" she was pregnant the first time?

What was the line from the pirate cat in "The Last Unicorn"? 'No cat never gave no one a straight answer'?

From what I understand, the vet who said that Lorrie was pregnant was the vet at On Angel's Wings based on feeling Lorrie's abdomen. The verdict today comes from the vet that KA uses to treat the cats / kittens when they are sick. He took x-rays and an ultrasound.

Life's little ups and downs...

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

The latest news is that KA has a line on another pregnant momcat that may be arriving Tuesday / Wednesday. But after Cashew and Lorraine sneaking into KA with false credentials, this momcat is going to the vet first to make sure there are kittens on board.

There also may be an unrelated kitten coming too at the same time.

Kinda gives "entrance exam" a whole new meaning.
