Missed it! I'm catching up on TV shows.

Looks like the next time this will happen will be Thursday at 7:30 PM eastern. I'll have to see this.

Also, John's going to start looking for a new family of kittens on the 7th. That's going to be huge!

Edit: vvv Okay, I have to see this this Thursday. That looks like it'll be awesome! vv

Keep in mind that this doesn't mean that the Kitten Cam will be up and running again on the 7th. Everyone will have to get settled in first.

I realize this, hell, there might not even be a family that he can have for days after the 7th, let alone letting them calm down/settle in. But it is coming soon.

This is somewhat unrelated but does anyone remember the webcam that was in a doggy daycare? It was a popular thread a few years back. It was a rather good quality and fast stream. I have been trying to see if it is still around and more importantly if there is a similar place in the Boston area.

It was in a doggy daycare with adult dogs running around. It was neat because there were 20-30 dogs or so.

John and the Critter Room of Spice Kittens fame is probably going to go live in a few hours or morning, with a nice new higher-quality webcam. He's letting the new mother settle in. "She's currently hugging a sleeping kitten so things look good"

The mother is called Ripley and the kittens are Bishop, Newt, Parker, Dallas and Ash. They've come to him older than the last few litters, about a month old now.

Around 11:15 on the DVR Ripley is really trying to get out.

These are pretty cute kittens, I have to say. They are pretty active. I think they'll be out in the big room pretty soon.

11:28 the other person that looks after the cats (Chris) shows up.

I think it's a 2 leave cage, and she can't get out. Her food and litter are on the upper level.

Here's a shot of it from the spice kittens days:

Here's another kitten cam - this ones in Australia. Don't worry the state it's in is not currently on fire.

Cat Haven (they are in Australia, so they are in the future!

These cats have a really nice play area, lots of toys, lots of space

Here's their website

Pictures later, seems like their camera is in a an outside area with not much light.

Sweet! Thanks for adding it to the OP Me and a friend set this cam up last year as a sort of silly project at the ISP we work at, but the Cat Haven guys loved the idea. We had some huge viewer numbers initially (it went mini-viral, as in we made australian news only), and just recently they showed us their adoption stats which were noticeably higher since it started. Feels good man.

It streams 24/7 since they put a roof on the enclosure so the kittens can stay in there all the time, but it's outdoors so it's pitch black at night. I have just shown the Cat Haven guys the disco party idea and they are loving excited. Outdoor kitten rave in the near future .. stay tuned.

Here's a little highlights reel I put together when the cam was moved to an undercover enclosure last winter : http://freezone.iinet.net.au/vod/fr...kitty-cam/13261

They were low on kittens for a while, which is a great thing .. unless you want some adorable online kitten action. It's kittening season now so they've got tons, and the whole enclosure has been revamped and upgraded.

John's Foster Kitten Cam is definitely my favorite to watch because a) they all have names b) the camera is high quality in a clear environment c) he's awesome and d) if they're sleeping the past day is recorded and you can skip around for when they're awake and when he's playing with them.

Unfortunately, these factors all lead to you getting fond of them and then they all go away and you never see them again unless you follow them on facebook

There's some starting to show. Like Newt, the one with the white collar of fur, is pretty much always on the move and poking around. She's not any more hyper or frentic than the others, she just won't stop tromping around.

Yeah, looking like this litter's Pepper. Betting she'll be a proper escape artist once they get into the big playroom.

Also I never get tired of watching mum forcibly wash the kittens and them feebly trying to bat her away.

I wonder if Pet Collective will have a kitten disco dance party tonight?

Weigh in in about 15 minutes on the Ripley stream. Ash is getting big fast!

Edit, no weigh in was 15 minutes in on the DVR from the begining. all kittens are around a lb, except ash, who is 18 + ounces.

Edit 2: Pet Collective will have a disco dance part at 4pm Saturday.

John was just playing with the kittens at the cage door and man, Parker and Dallas are already little terrors. Constant escape attempts! John is just basically lifting the pair of them to the back of the cage constantly, because the second he lets them go they make a shaky little beeline for the door again. I can't wait for these little furballs to get their proper play on.

EDIT: in case I missed John talking about it, or if someone watched the Spice Kittens or Scientist Kittens at this stage, how long will the kittens be in the small cage before they have a proper play area set up? Until they teeth? Until they get better balance? Hit a weight point?

He was talking about this. He watches their speed, balance, and ability to track objects before he lets them out.

Right now there just seems to be one posing for the camera whilst the others in the background play.
