Fight

Tweed isn't terribly discriminatory about the battles he picks, is he?

He also doesn't seem to be coming out ahead on any of them.

Ok so now it's sleepy-time for the kittens and bathtime for mama.

Icon204 Technical Difficulties

S'mai bawb:

it looks like the kittens have gotten to the router as the live feed is down. However, the screen message shows a kitten chewing on a cable while another kitten looks on. The message is "I call Technical Support and they send this guy?"

Ta ra 'wan,

It's back up.

Bonsai Kitten

the kitten chewing on the cable is Harvard & his sister Cornell is in the back

they, along with their sister Yale, were born to Ivy on 06 August 2016
they were all adopted in early December & Ivy was adopted too

Cornell & Yale were known for climbing the curtains & unplugging the camera on the ceiling
Harvard loved to chew on cables

they were a great little group & are each now in a forever home

Right now, several of the kittens are getting a bath from mama, and there are quite a few tiny little kitty-loafs strewn about the floor watching.

They were in full action mode just a while ago. There were three that were racing around the room chasing each other, one who could not decide how he was going to attack something in one of the beds and the rest just walking around while the Moms had a good rest.

I need to write a paper tonight, so I'll put Kitten Academy on the tablet while I work on the laptop. Should offer no distractions.

Nah--it's only cute little kittens doing cute kitty things. You'll get your paper done in no time.

The Textiles are up and romping again. One is underneath an overturned cat bed and launching sneak attacks!

Yes, there seems to be no lingering after-effects following yesterday's "graduation ceremonies" (i.e., a trip to the vet for shots, the snip and a chip).

I see that the Fonts are now old enough to realize that siblings were created for the purpose of wrestling and pouncing on.

Yeah, for once the Fonts are wrestling and romping and the Textiles are napping!

What a reversal!

Hello Kitty Moving Day At Kitten Academy

With the majority of the Textiles now adopted, Charlie and the Fonts have now moved into the big room. The kittens seem to be having a great time exploring their new digs.

Hello Kitty

It looks like after the weekend adoption push, Chiffon and Velvet are the only Textiles left. So they were given the run of the house yesterday.

There is currently a jumbled up ball of kittens battling one of the mama cats.

Squeeeeeeeee!

Very baby kittens! -- right now, nursing, and Mama looking around; rather in black and white, the daylight lighting must be off.

There are very small mewing noises -- I keep having to remind myself that they're coming from the computer. An Immediately Present Cat just sat partway up to try to figure them out.

They might be in a darkened area with a night-vision camera.

But I have to say.... AAAH! SQUEE! Cute little squirmy kitties!

New newborns' cam is in color now.

Looks like they're getting a bath from mama.

Hello Kitty Angel's Fish - Haddock, Trout, Halibut & Pomfret

Hi All:

The folks at Kitten Academy seem to love to use themes when naming the kittens. For example, the last two "classes" were the Textiles (e.g., Velvet, Chiffon, etc) and the Fonts (e.g., Arial, Baskerville, Garamond, Zapf and Wingdings). They continued the pattern when naming Angel's squirmy day-old kittens.

I give you "Angel's Fish" (in order by birth)
  1. Haddock ("Haddie") - the white calico female
  2. Trout - the white and black male
  3. Halibut ("Hal") - the tabby male
  4. Pomfret ("Pom") - the white female kitten with a couple small black spots

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan ab Arthur
