And already named! Mr. Pickles came with his name, so they're keeping that one. The others are named for Middle-Eastern cuisine.

Hello Kitty Mr. Pickles

I see that one of these things is not like the other. It seems that Mr. Pickles is quite a bit larger than the Purrsians. Mr. A says that Mr Pickles will probably be doing some post-graduate work (i.e., allowed to roam with the faculty) for a couple weeks until he gets his knackers nicked. Hopefully an adopter or two will put their names forward quickly for him.

Ta ra 'wan,

Damn.

He had the best possible start to life with a loving, protective foster family, a loving momma, and an adopter waiting in the wings.

It doesn't seem fair something like this should happen.

You know... in the past thinking about their "No Sads" policy, I sometimes wondered what they would do if they lost a kitten. I never really wanted to know the answer to that question.

This retweet from the official twitter page teared me up when I first saw it after I'd heard Ben was really sick and had gone to the vet:




It breaks my heart to see it now.

Oh Ben, I am so sorry!

-- I wonder whether something was wrong with him internally from the beginning? His mother's so young and so small; I think it's more common for not all the kittens to make it when the mother's too young.

Poor little Ben. My condolences to Mr. A and DJ who, I am sure, are heartbroken. As KA followers, we get so involved in the lives of these little kittens. When something like this happens, even to a kitten hundreds of miles away from me and who I only know through a computer screen, it feels like I've lost my own pet.

Gorffwys mewn heddwch, Ben bach.

The kitten room is going to be full with six Chili beans and four Purrsians (plus one momcat). I hope all goes well.

Default URIs (i.e., Kitty Colds)

S'mai:

In a slightly later tweet, Mr A. says that they decided to put in the Purrsians with the Beans rather than with the Croux as both the Beans and the Purrsians have had the same upper respiratory infection (i.e., kitty cold) from the same shelter. Roux's Croux hasn't had the URI.

I just looked on the live stream ....

11 kittens in the main room & you can't see any kitten ... not a one

lol

I think it was best to add Mr Pickles & the Purrsians into Chili's Pot because she (Chili) is such a relaxed cat & can easily go out of the room if she feels overwhelmed

though Mr Pickles was put out of the room at one point & Cory was not being friendly ... Mr A kept telling Cory that 'nobody likes a bully'

glad to at last have evidence that I am not the only one who speaks to my cats in such a manner
