The Whole Cat and Caboodle

We still haven't caught the kitten's momma.
The folks at Ace of Spays sent me to
the website for some help

They have a section on socializing feral kittensThey say ideally you should spend about two hours each day holding and playing with them, which I have had no trouble doing. Two hours each, times four equals eight, right?

My friend Nan, lent me her cat condo.
It's a real god send and the precious pussy cats just love it.
They can't jump very high yet,
but have learned very quickly to climb like monkeys
to reach the top perch.

The itty bitty kitties seem very happy,
enjoying their space, my frequent visits and each other's company.

This shy petite Pixie will be leaving us this weekend.

Along with her personable big sister, my sweet little Cutie Pye.

Yes, the calico girls will be meeting their new mom and dad this Saturday!  On Sunday they will depart with them and travel 300 miles to their new home in central, New York. I am really and truly grateful that they are getting such a wonderful home! I have to admit that it is bitter sweet however and I'm afraid I will miss them terribly. Even though they are incredibly awesome kittens, I am amazed at how I have become so attached to all of them in such a short time.

 Their new mom, Robin Larkspur, is starting up a blog called PurrrrSnicKitty that will feature these tiny "Jersey Girls" and their adventures.  So along with everyone else in the blogosphere, I will be able to keep up with them and their new lives. I know they will be treated like royalty.

 they have not forgotten this."  ~ Terry Pratchett

Hugs and Purrs,


  1. Awww, Sandy I am feeling bad that I am taking them away from you. Hey, you can come visit us!!

    1. I know I will get over it, Robin. Thanks for understanding if I shed a tear or two, though. I really am thrilled they are going to such an awesome, loving home! Thank you dear sweet lady.

  2. Oh, how I know, I know I know I know!

  3. Words from the Left Coast
    First ... HURRAY!!! Drum roll, gongs, bells and other noisy celebratory noise-makers! I am so happy to read that your ankle is almost there, and that you'll be riding soon. You must really be chomping at the proverbial bit.
    And your kittens are SO adorable. I've signed up to Purrsnickety to read about their progress after they move. The photo portrait at the top of this post is fabulous.
    The chinchillas are jealous - that cat condo is just the thing they've been looking for in a house. :)

    1. Hey Kathryn - Yes, I am chomping at the bit. I brought my riding boots in last night. I want to see if I can get into them yet. We are having so much fun with the babies! Do the Chinchillas climb? If so, I bet they would love the condo. Thanks for your comments!!

  4. Hi Sandy. I found my way here from Robin's blog. Such cute little kitties. I originally come from New Jersey and was forever rescuing ferals and puppies. New Yorkers used to come spend the summer at the lake, get a pet for their children, and then drop it off someplace on their way back to the city in fall. Heartbreaking.
    My little old lady kitty, Miss Minga, is a feral. She just turned 20 in July. She and I grew old together.
    A new follower,

    1. Welcome Mary and congratulations on Miss Minga's 20th birthday! You must be doing everything right. Thanks for following here and for your nice comments!
