Kitties galore!

Since my sister has moved back to the area we have spent many enjoyable hours talking, giggling, eating, and watching General Hospital. And along with that, she has three wonderful cats that I get to visit. No cats at my house, Ichabod's deathly allergic. So I get to visit the little darlings and leave someone else to clean the litterbox.

The first to greet me, and perhaps try to escape out the door, is Thirteen. He is cuddly and lovey. But he'll try to climb you with those sharp, little kitten claws.

Black cat on black chair, but we did our best.


Then there's Friday. When I first started visiting, Friday acted like a ninny. He would hide. Then when we did make eye contact he had the "popsicle" eyes. If I even acted like I might get close he'd run.

Now, he's finally decided that I can, sometimes, pet him. He has jumped in my lap once. That was amazing. But, as you can see from these pictures, the little tuxedo kitten is fairly comfortable being around me.


Last, but certainly not least, there's old man Eeyore. Some of you probably know him from Jess's place. He loved Katy so much and was just lost when she was gone, so they decided Eeyore should come over here. He's 18 but is acting like he's much younger now. He's pretty mellow around me, but prefers to hide out in the spare bedroom.


And if that wasn't enough for the cute overload, here's what happens when you give catnip to kittens and remember your camera:

Awwwwwwww, what cutie kitties! You can barely tell that they're beaten on a regular basis.

Bucky, is that why they try to follow me out the door every time I leave. ;-)

Laurie, thank you and you're welcome. You and Bucky provide me with plenty of kitty pics to keep me going, too. :-)

I love the names she picked out for them. The one black on black you could tell he was there with those bright blue eyes of his. But they are precious. I love cats but just dont want any animals right now.

What a set! And the video was cute. Not having 2 cats, it's the sort of thing I don't get to see very much. Well, that and we don't give our cat catnip. She gets pretty weird.

They are very pretty. Interesting how they are all black.

All beautiful kitties! I'm so glad you have each other to spend hours talking, giggling, eating, and watching GH.

I remeber them doing that well, but it was always on my head while i was trying to sleep and wobbles was egging them on..

Kitty Wrestling!! And no pesky sumo suits.

Nick, almost! ;-)

htgt, I was amazed by the length of that tail when I first saw it in person. He's a strange little tuxedo cat.

Tweets, I like their names, too. Definitely different. I have no pets either, but I get to visit them. :-)

Danielle, two cats that get along definitely keep each other entertained, catnip or not. So GG doesn't like to get 'nipped up? She does have a black cat theme going here, doesn't she. Thanks!

Jess, so nice to see you! I know you know all about these cat antics. You could write a book. How's Wobbles doing these days?

Eclectic, nope, these cats are the daring type, no clothes at all.

TOO CUTE!! It's obvious who rules Bucky's roost.

For a minute there I thought you beat me at learning how to use youtube. I was relieved to learn that Bucky did it for you. I really will learn how to post my videos...one of these days....really. ;)

tshsmom, yes, I've learned how to put a movie out on You Tube, but I don't have a clue how to put music on it. I really don't even remember how I put one movie out there the one time that I did it.

And, yes, those cats do rule the roost. :-)

Being a kitty aunty is great. And even better Ichabod can see them playing without the allergies. Yay You Tube!

Kranki, you are so right on all counts. :-)

Effie, thanks! I'm glad you like them. I know you know about cats.

Susie, hi, so great to see you here! I love it that you enjoyed this one. Cats aren't your favorite critters. ;-)

Wobbles has been insanely whiny and extra full of woe for some time now.

Jess, you need to bring Wobbles and Scraps over for a play date.

JDR, thanks!

Milkmaid, I love Friday's long, prehensile tail. It's almost unbelievable.

Jess, my heart is breaking, I love that boy so. Bucky, has a wonderful idea there. You guys really need to make the trip over. :-)

Happy Birthmark, Squirl. Bucky says you're 21. I figure she's working in Celsius now, huh?

Scraps has become extra rotten. Rotten.

Wobbles just wants to eat kitten chow so he can puke. Hermione just wants to eat it and Moo just wants to stick her nose in any cats butt.

Happy birthday! Hope I get to see you when i come visit in july

Jeez, Nilbo, if I'm that old in celsius, then how old does that make you?

Jess, sounds kinda like business, almost, as usual around your place. Crazy pets doing crazy things. Thanks! I hope I get to see you, too!

Our prodigal son has returned home and is living in sep accom,a huge renovated shed with mods and cons plus three cats. Sweep 5,Baby 3, Tiger-Lilly 1.
In a complete turnaround we now find ourselves responsible for feeding 3 moggies instead of the dozens of beautiful birds, which have fled the scene after several fatalities.
Dearly-beloved and I sincerely hope #5 son will not become a permanent fixture.

Vest, I love cats, but I hate to see the birds all go because of them. Good luck on your kids not being there forever.

What a cute post with great cats! Lucky you have those fur babies near you to cuddle. A life without cats just isn't complete for me. :-)
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Three more fatalities overnight, One pigeon, One lorikeet, one small chewed up marsupial?.
Would collars with bells help?.

Tink, fur babies are fun! Thanks for stopping by.

Vest, I think that collars with bells are definitely in order.
