KITTENS

Everyone loves kittens -- well almost everyone, but they are hard to photograph when they are awake, they move around to much too fast. I took these shots while they were awake the other day but didn't get as many shots as I would like to have done.


I think there were only two in this tangled up bunch.  Only eight weeks old but usually a bundle of energy.


I think this time it was was me moving, not the kitten. We have several with this kind of coloring.  The pink collar means it is a girl.  We have to check the the collars frequently because the kittens grow and the collars don't!


These two were having a good old tussle but when I went up to them they both looked up at me at the same time.  Lucky shot.

I will be going in again tomorrow and want to try to get a couple of shots of my favorite one.  She is a little shy at first but then ends up snuggled in a soft bed purring loudly while I scratch her ears. Then when I close the door and move away she puts her paws through the bars to bring me back.  She doesn't have a name yet.  Most of the kittens don't.  The new owners name them.  I think I'm going to call her Lucy -- not that I'm going to be her new owner, sadly.

Darling kitten pictures Chris.

We had to take Molly to the Vet today as she was having a lot of pain when we picked her up.

No broken bones, a sore shoulder joint, not sure how she did it, maybe jumping off the bed or couch. Anyway, glad is was not too serious. She's on muscle relaxer and pain meds for a few days.

Kittens are so adorable and cute, I hope they will be able to find a really good safe and happy home.

Big, beautiful eyes on these little ones. They play so cute together, don't they?

Oh so hard to resist! It must be hard for you not to take them all home!

The first two are so like our Ella, who right now has sensed there is rain approaching and has curled up on the chair ready for her nap!

our cat is sitting next to me purring sooo loudly and rubbing his head on the computer if I stop rubbing behind his ear! I think Lucy needs to come home with you!

What temptation! It must be very hard to care for these delightful homeless ones without taking them all home with you......

Kitten are so cute. I will be never the owner of a new cat because of the road. We already lost two.
