There is a beautiful young Momma Tortie and her three gorgeous babies on our porch. The Momma seems to have been a “discard”, as she is very domesticated. She has terrific markings and very long hair. Momma Tortie’s kittens come in a nice selection of colors: basic black with a bit of white, a yellow stripey and the soft grey longer hair. All come attired in tuxedos.

I would foster her and the kits, but we are in assisted living and have our two-pet quota with KC and Missy.

They are on my porch where the temperature in the direct SE sun is 97 degrees F. I put a shade up over the chairs and am freezing plastic bags of ice for them. They have food and water. I would like to find foster home or no-kill shelter in the Houston-Katy-Sugarland area. Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.


KC’s 1st Birthday – The Aftermath

KC got a WhirlyBird. KC & Tazz enjoyed playing with it.
Woofies (at least this one) really like these, too.
Lazer Eyes! This Whirlybird makes her crazy.
KC also got a tall kitty tree.
The Skybox at the top (5.5′) has sides so she can’t roll off.
Here she contemplates the ceiling, eager to get up there and walk on it.
The mid-level is handy for just hanging out, plus there’s fev-vers.

It’s also a good place for grooming toesies.

KC’s 1st Birthday

Can you believe KC is one year old?
Today, June 26, was chosen as KC’s official un-official birthday,
to honor Karen C’s grandmother’s birthday.
[Karen C rescued a tiny KC from the “back room”, then she and Deb Taylor worked really hard to have her released]

We’ve got goodies set out if you’d like….

Missy and I made lots and lots of mouse cupcakes.

Missy made her almost-famous Cool Cat drink… a secret mix of tuna water and catnip.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing KC’s first birthday with us.

Missy’s Summer Secret Paw

Yummmmm, this package sure smells grrrreat!

Oh, here’s Missy’s picture, isn’t she beautiful. We look a bit alike.
Thank you, Sweet Missy, for my wonderful Summer Secret Paw.

He will be missed!

Here is a picture of Margaret’s puppy, Tazz. Doesn’t she look a lot like Bear? Bear & Tazz always thought they were sisters. Our doggies introduced us to Tommy and Margaret, that is how we met.
We are keeping Tazz while her Mommy Margaret is in the hospital. She and KC love to romp and play.

UPDATE 6/20: Margaret has a very bad case of pneumonia and two collapsed lungs. She is being monitored around the clock and is on pain management.
