Friday Memes for Friday Smiles


My memes today feature each of my four foster kittens. You better get you giggles and squeees ready!! First up is Laughing Samantha aka Sammie. She is a total pee-wee tomboy!! The smallest and the most courageous of the four!! Not to mention the silliest!!

Here comes our sensitive leader of this Hole in the Wall Gang. Butch Cassidy aka Butchie, himself.

Our house panther, The Domino Kid aka Dom, is a rough and tough player but also the first to cry “aiiieeeee!”

Ms Jessie James is a love bug. She does enjoy napping in our laps. She has big dreams!!!

Hope you enjoyed our silly, darling kittens.


Our seven week old foster kittens


I wanna give you an update on our current foster kittens, Butch Cassidy (boy) and his Hole in the Wall Gang. His side kicks are Jessie James (a girl), The Domino Kid (boy) and Laughing Samantha (girl). They are growing up so fast. When I posted their rescue story, they were only about four weeks old.

And now, this coming Wednesday, they will be about seven weeks old. You can see them climbing on Dad P like he is their very own purrsonal jungle gym!!

In the two weeks since I last shared about them they have started using the litter box!! SCORE a big one for mom cat Cassandra!! She doesn’t have to lick their butts anymore! And, they are nursing less and less and eating kitten food mixed with KMR replacement milk to make a sort’a pablum. Another SCORE for mom, ‘cuz they aren’t hanging on to her!

And today, we saw Butch and Domino use their cardboard scratcher!! WOO HOO!!! Oh yeah, and Mom L watched Samantha carry a crocheted mousie, made by Miss Ellen from 15 and Meowing. Silly Sammie had it hangin’ by the tail outta her mouth as she proudly carried it around, growling at her siblings if they came too close!!! Too funny!! Sorry, no photo!

Our crazy pants kitten is turning out to be the smallest, Laughing Samantha! She is just da’bomb!!

Each one of them is now looking for human contact and cuddling. Check out darling Jessie James, fallen sound asleep in Dad P’s lap.

Yeah, well she is upside down, but she didn’t even notice!! MOL!!!

Have a purrfect month of May!



Friday Smiles without the Memes



Since Tuesday morning about 6:30 AM PDST, it has been a very very busy 72 hours for us. I will tell all another time, because it is a long story. But the photos will explain why Mom L could not get my Friday Memes post done for me.

Mom L got a text then a call Tuesday about 6:30 AM. There was a neighbor with a possibility of some kittens stuck in the wallboard near the ceiling in her garage. And so Mom L’s long journey began. Shortly that same morning, Dad P and Miss Kandi went looking  with Mom L and they didn’t find anything—until Mom L went back with a cat trapping friend, Miss Venus, on Wednesday about 8 AM.

So here are your Friday Smiles without Friday Memes.


Let me know in comments!! Here are four being fed by their mom cat now being fostered with her four kittens in my castle. Now ya know there are at least four!!

We pulled a whole bunch of seven to ten day old kittens outta that garage wall!! All from ONE MOMMA CAT!!??  Nope. We found a second mom cat, and she is being fostered with a pal along with her kittens.

Have a great weekend!! I won’t be back until next Friday to present the whole rescue story. Mom L and Dad P are taking off for a little getaway for their forty-fifth anniversary!!
