they're all asleep, dammit

I wish there was a poke button

sashh Fri 16-Nov-12 06:02:20

They are asleep but so cute, their little bellies doing a sort of mexican wave starting from the right.

sashh Fri 16-Nov-12 06:02:34

They are awake!

sashh Fri 16-Nov-12 07:16:46

I want Pepper. So cute. And yes I have just spent an hour watching that.

chaosandcupcakes Fri 16-Nov-12 07:24:49

Amaze. Thankyou for this, so cute

Ponders Fri 16-Nov-12 10:26:47

I took my ex-kitties to be spayed this morning - poor little scraps didn't know what the hell was going on - no breakfast & then taken to that strange-smelling place & put in separate cages sad

The nurse said she'd give them their pre-med straight away as they won't be done until after lunch - I hope she did...

Ponders Fri 16-Nov-12 10:27:30

when I say ex-kitties I mean they are more or less cats now. they are still alive & still feline, obv grin

cozietoesie Fri 16-Nov-12 10:53:17

Yep - let's vote for a poke button! (Or at least one saying 'Hey - nosh!)


Ponders Fri 16-Nov-12 11:07:01

somebody's going to fall off the top of that box in a minute...

issey6cats Fri 16-Nov-12 11:39:33

awww love them all but have a soft spot for the black and white one and mums georgous

cozietoesie Fri 16-Nov-12 11:42:42

They've gone back to sleep now. I'm not lucky this morning.

cozietoesie Fri 16-Nov-12 11:43:57

Or maybe they're suckling? (I can see a ginger ear moving.)

cozietoesie Fri 16-Nov-12 11:54:42

I could watch this all day. That fawn coloured one is a right little bruiser, isn't it? It's beating up the ginger and white boy. No wonder Mom is fed up and has gone off.

Geeklette Fri 16-Nov-12 21:25:49

OMGOMGOMG mine were that size once!!! can I have them back to being that size again please universe?

Geeklette Fri 16-Nov-12 21:30:18

I want the sandy one... I want the ginger & white one... I want the black & white one... I WANT THEM ALL! grin

Fluffycloudland77 Fri 16-Nov-12 21:58:57

I love the way they all go to mom for a wash before having milk. So lovely to see.

Not kitten broody at all.

sashh Fri 16-Nov-12 23:20:02

Pepper is my favorite, she is the feisty one.

MacAndCheese Fri 16-Nov-12 23:26:01

envy I want one.

MacAndCheese Fri 16-Nov-12 23:27:28

Aw the fawn coloured one is beating up a ginger one. I remember when my little beasts darlings were that small...

<misty eyed>

Still envy

MrsGeologist Fri 16-Nov-12 23:42:48

They're frolicking! Soooooo cuuuuute! Don't want one though.

NobCat has been through the wringer recently with various problems, resulting in eye watering vet bills, so I know all those cute kitties will turn into big cats and then make expensive nuisances of themselves.

MacAndCheese Fri 16-Nov-12 23:45:34

Don't you want one just for a little while though?

MrsGeologist Fri 16-Nov-12 23:49:11

Maybe. For a play and a cuddle, then give them back.

sashh Sat 17-Nov-12 06:23:22
cozietoesie Sat 17-Nov-12 09:32:58

Well they've stopped beating each other up and are now a tangle of limbs (with one leg escaping gently.) I shouldn't imagine it will last.

I wonder what the proper collective noun for a lump of kittens is ?


Ponders Sat 17-Nov-12 10:49:22

ooh, thanks for that, sashh!

cozietoesie Sat 17-Nov-12 17:51:40

Mum is looking like she can't wait for them to find new homes!

Fluffycloudland77 Sat 17-Nov-12 18:28:54

I think it's a clouter of cats. Probably wrong.

SecretNutellaFix Sat 17-Nov-12 18:35:05

I always thought it was a kindle of kittens.

Ponders Sat 17-Nov-12 19:42:04

lots of historic webcam stuff here

scroll down for teeny weeny kittehs



cozietoesie Sat 17-Nov-12 21:03:03

They're doing really well for what - 6 weeks old? He must be a good fosterer.


cozietoesie Sun 18-Nov-12 10:08:14

The milk bar just arrived back after (I assume) some Me Time. Total kitten attention.


ZebraOwl Sun 18-Nov-12 11:52:15

Collective nouns for cats: a clutter, a clowder or a pounce. Last one is totally the best, no?

For kittens: a litter, a kindle or an intrigue. Again, I like the last one the best. Even if it makes sound a little bit as though the kittens should be gracing the covers of gossip magazines grin

Am sure we could come up with some better collective nouns though.

A snuggle of kittens, maybe?

cozietoesie Sun 18-Nov-12 12:18:52

I rather like snuggle - although right now it's more of a sprawl.

What I love about kittens is the total concentration they give everything. 10 minutes sleep followed by 10 minutes beating up one of the ginger kits followed by 10 minutes eating then ........



cozietoesie Thu 29-Nov-12 15:31:57

They'll be ready to go soon-ish. I know I'm a great believer in the Siamese breeders' '12 weeks or more before they go' - but they're starting to hang out by themselves.


cozietoesie Thu 29-Nov-12 15:49:45

I recall going to get third last Siamese cat (or second last - however these things are reckoned - the one before the one before anyway) and we were introduced to Mom. She came into the room with a tired look on her face and then bounded up to us with an 'Oh Thank God - it's people '. (Her kits were about 12 weeks old.)

Mom - in that link - has started to get something of the same tired look.


Fluffycloudland77 Thu 29-Nov-12 15:54:55

Perhaps it's like mums with toddlers. She does look like she's in softplay hell. Unless someone is bleeding she is not getting up.

Our cat's mom just turned her back to us when we arrived to take him, he does the same thing to people he doesnt know too. Then she snuggled down by the open fire with his sister.

Mermaidspam Thu 29-Nov-12 19:58:06

One of them is asleep with it's head over the side, vvv cute grin
