Can I just say how much it cracks me up every time that you call it “gen pop”? I have mental images of very tough kittens glaring meaningfully at each other and forming small furry gangs.
I have to admit that Fred’s the one who started referring to it as Gen Pop, but I picked it up immediately. It always makes me laugh, too!
One.. two… Three… FOUR … FIVE???
Umm… What was again the limit for being a crazy cat lady? 😉
The fosters don’t count, ’cause they’re not staying! That’s why I can say I’m not a cat hoarder, because we might currently have (gulp) 18 cats in the house, but only (!) 11 of them belong to us. And according to Laurie’s sidebar, you’re not classified as a crazy cat lady ’til you have 13! (I don’t know if she’s counting fosters in that total, though. Surely not?)
Oh they are all cuties – M’Lynn looks like she could be my baby Barney’s little sister! She has more white but the colors are the same. How long will they be with you?
They’ll be here ’til February 16th at the very least, as that’s when they’re due for their vaccinations. They may be here a little longer (it all depends on how adoptions go), but they’re here for at least a good solid two more weeks!
Claireeee looks like she might have a bit of bengal in that nose too… Does she have black feet?
I actually had to look and see, and it turns out that the only Magnolia girl who has any color on her feet at all is M’Lynn, who has a small splotch of black on one of her back feet. All the others have completely white feet. Drum does have black feet, though!
Ouiser is taupe and white, Robyn… a very sophisticated color scheme, actually! 😉
It sounds like she came right out of the LL Bean catalog, doesn’t it? 🙂
Yesterday, we did a bit of redecorating in the foster kitten room. We rolled up the old rug (a remnant we bought at Lowe’s about 2 1/2 years ago) and replaced it with a much smaller rug. Then we moved the cat tree downstairs and brought the BIG cat tree up to the cat room.
Of course I don’t have any pictures of the finished room to show you (that would be a very organized thing to do, and trust me, I am NOT the organized sort), but I’ll get some soon. The smaller rug makes the room look a lot bigger, even with the much larger cat tree in there.
And the cat tree is a huge hit – Ouiser must have spent twenty minutes batting at one of the toys hanging off the upper level!
I have been terribly lax on getting pictures of Steely Dan and Fagen – I’ll remedy that before tomorrow, promise!
We got two Ham-Micks from Forty Paws, and I set them up over the weekend. To say they were a hit would be a HUGE understatement.
For the first few days, the cats were literally standing in line to lay on the Ham-Mick. The last couple of days, they’re completely ignoring it. That’s par for the course with our cats. They’ll ignore it for a while, and then eventually someone will claim it as his or her own.
I moved one of them up to the foster kitten room, and the kittens really enjoy their Ham-Mick. When they’re feeling playful, one of them will lay on top of the Ham-Mick and another will lay underneath, and they’ll bat at each other through the material.
So, yes – we definitely recommend the Ham-Micks!
