John had just said goodbye to the Looney Fosters at the weekend, and has taken new ones on.

Here is what he says about the new litter "Glados gave birth to Hal, a litter of one, on August 30th. Their family seemed incomplete so they adopted three little boys (Holly, Jarvis and Eddie) who were part of a litter of nine that was born on September 4th. Hal is a great big brother and Glados adores all four of her babies! Hal is the dark brown tabby, Jarvis is solid gray, Eddie is the gray tabby and Holly is gray and white."

And one has a spotty belly - OK I admit it I'm in love (but still pining for Taz)

Goodness - he didn't give himself much of a break. Lovely lot.

(Although I think I heard a little sneeze when I tuned in. Hope it's just some dust.)

Sooooooooo cute

cozietoesie · 01/10/2013 08:12

For anyone wondering.

Name Guide: Glados is from the game Portal, Hal is from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, Jarvis is the computer from Iron Man, Eddie is the computer on Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and Holly comes from Red Dwarf.

(With thanks to Kitten Cam chat.)

Heh. Love the names. Have actually just managed to catch John checking up on them (must be 1am there!).

The five day difference in age between Hal and the rest is really noticeable at the moment, especially in the ears!

Oh - and \link{\here's} the link for voting in the Shelter Challenge. If you're not voting for someone else, remember to vote for Purrfect Pals: that prize could make a big difference to their work.

(Voting is open until 13 October if I recall. You can vote once a day.)

Mum is very beautiful. She's lying there looking just blissed out - glinting golden eyes.

GerundTheBehemoth · 01/10/2013 16:37

Wow, what a gorgeous little family. Already falling for Eddie the blue tabby. I've just been inspired to ask my local rescue about fostering again (have done it before but been foster-catless for a few months now).

DidoTheDodo · 01/10/2013 16:37

I am having a crappy day at work and this kittencam has just cheered me up no end!

cozietoesie · 01/10/2013 19:05

Ah - the playfight is over Everybody is a-sprawl now.


mankyscotslass · 02/10/2013 19:38

Glados has tipped her food bowl down into the main area of the cage. Towel change needed!

aww just been watching them play when john came and sat down to sort the towel out and have a play with them they are so cute and mom is georgous

cozietoesie · 03/10/2013 08:54

They're a very wordy lot. Mom hardly stops talking and the kits are taking after her.


cozietoesie · 03/10/2013 21:02

That Momma has the most wonderful eyes.

NuggetofPurestGreen · 03/10/2013 21:16

Ah how am I ever supposed to go to bed now??!! So cute!!

Want a cat.

cozietoesie · 03/10/2013 21:20

Well whoever gets Hal is going to have their work cut out. What a bundle of (lovely) trouble.

cozietoesie · 03/10/2013 22:46

Look now for a picture of contentment.

KRITIQ · 04/10/2013 00:59

They are so gorgeous! Here's my cat watching them yesterday.

cozietoesie · 04/10/2013 17:55

What a lovely cat. Almost as cute as Holly! Wink

cozietoesie · 05/10/2013 14:14

It looks as if at least two of them have fallen asleep on the milk bar.


moonbells · 05/10/2013 18:39

Just popped on and there's a kitten asleep in the chickenfish! Grin

That would be Holly - at the bottom of the pile and (as ever) in danger of being suffocated by Hal! She's a bit obsessed with CF.

cozietoesie · 06/10/2013 18:39

I don't know how long Mum and FDJ will be able to keep that Hal under control. I suspect an escape attempt is on the cards.

JerseySpud · 06/10/2013 22:14
