Rewind to the beginning of today's stream. Around the 10 minute mark John starts introducing the kittens to getting their fur brushed and they all loooove it. Newt goes nuts when John brushes her.

Hah, Bishop clearly likes it but really wants to know what it is, so she spends the whole time being brushed twirling in circles to try to examine it and ends up falling off the platform.

Yeah the kittens think EVERYTHING is a toy.

Also it looks like Parker isn't the only escape artist anymore. I think a couple of kittens have broken out just now and the rest are sitting by the fence looking all sad. Except for Dallas who is sleeping in the Enterprise.

EDIT: nope I guess it was just Parker, John just returned him into the pen.

I turned on the baby seal cam because I needed something cute to watch while my mom was rambling drunkenly on at me about being blind and seals are my favourite animal, and all I get is a faceful of eagle eating a dead baby seal pup

Yeah, watch the Kitten Cam. We have kitten piles, snuggling, crab walking and sniffing at the camera.

The creamy orange squash face kitties are drat cute in the 1:30 game.

From FB:

The Critter Room
I never give my fosters catnip - I save that for the adopters. But if I did and kittens can speak, here's my predictions on their reactions.

Parker: I CAN FLY! Climb the EVERYTHING!
Newt: Oh wow purple walls I should clean that with pancakes and a squeaky mouse through the fishbed to get to mom by upside-down and towel.
Ash: I can't move, don't dare ever move - I'll collapse into a black hole and destroy everything.
Bishop: This looks like a good spot to lay down and melt.
Dallas: Duuuuude. I mean, dude. Whoahhhh dude. Dude!

Aagh, she really is too cute, look at that ickle face. I love the way Bishop (the floofy black and white one) always curls up against John The Foster Dads' foot when he's in the pen with them; it's such a sweet, trusting little mannerism.

Yeah Bishop seems to really like John. Also I really like how the kittens apparently immediately untie his shoes when he sits down

Yeah Ash learned the arts of escape quickly. I mean, once he realized there was something to escape to. Now he's just going over the fence like it's nothing.

They are pretty drat cute, but not quite on the same level as baby kittens. (It's the totally fuzzy fur that gives them the edge.)

I'd say their levels of cuteness arise from different types of adorable and are of an equal level. But one can scoop up and cuddle kittens. Otters, not so much.

This is very true. Now, if you had said baby turtles? Or worse, shiba inu puppies? I might have had a hard time arguing.

Baby turtles are great but they do lack the all-important cuddle factor. Puppies are always good but not as good as kittens. Or baby otters. Not even St. Bernard puppies.

Kitten report, kittens are ridiculous



From a few days ago, since there's no apartment block tower. I'm watching right now and someone's shoved one of those long sticks with a feather on the end inside it and there's a kitten wrestling it on all three levels. It's pretty absurd.

Two weeks of kitties left. Foster Dad John posted this on the Critter Room's Facebook page:

quote:

Ripley & the kittens have been tested negative for bad things. Neuter/Spay has been scheduled for Tuesday the 19th. Their adoption day will likely be the 23rd at the Petsmart in Everett, WA.

Get the tissues ready

And I'll end up adding yet more cats to my like list.

I can't dredge up what happened to the rest of Shakespeare's kittens. This bunch seems to be Camelotte's kittens. They are super cute, and the grey one seems to be the nutbar.

The best ending for that would be a bunch of cats that avoid each other. If they'd stayed together that's probably what would already be happening...kittens don't usually stay friends for long once they start getting big.

It seems the new Pet Collective kittens had a bath, and they all were fine with it. The foster thinks some of them might even like swimming.
