The Fun House

Now six weeks in, we're going to the vet today for the first round of tests and shots. I expect it'll be something like... oh yeah, herding cats. Lately this troop has been venturing out of the guest room several times a day to explore the house, eat odd things off the floor and climb everything in sight, including the drapes. One of the brand new foster kittens has an eye infection and is much smaller than the other one. We're taking him (?) to the vet too. The other one, is doing much better and it turns out is also a calico. Since we're sticking with carnival names, some of you may be interested to know that carnival women are less likely to have nicknames than the men are. Therefore, instead of naming this kitten Easy, I think we'll go with Janet because she and my friend Janet share some of the same qualities, which I will not list here (out of fear of retribution; this is the same friend who used to threaten to knock me out and give me a tattoo). Plus she's a top-shelf cat lover.

So here we are, the whole gang.

What a fine furry/purry family!

I think Whisky Nick is the most handsome with his short(er) hair and his symetric facial markings. But they're all beautiful. Gypsy and Janet are VERY pretty girls.

I'll bet Stella likes them ALL.

Your house must truly be a "fun house" with this cast of characters. What a bunch of cuties! I'm afraid Janet has stolen my heart, but no kitty's for me. With Buddy, my cat chasing dog, and my growing chicken flock, adding a kitty to that mix would NOT be good. Best of luck finding them good homes...
