Keep on dancing, Moomin

John just confirmed that Ripley's kittens will be getting spayed and neutered tomorrow, so I guess they really are leaving this weekend. Get your tissues ready and watch as much as you can. I don't know how I'll carry on without my regular dose of Newt

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.

I have a brother/sister cat pair I've had since they are kittens. They still cuddle together in piles of cuteness and clean each other and play and they are almost 3 now.

I can't really tell but but the hidden one might be a tortoiseshell. Or it might just be the orange one's leg.

It's already kinda hard to tell how many there are. Looks like two + a ginger one from where I'm sitting but then that is a proper kitten pile so it's hard to say.

EDIT: oh wait there's one under everyone else. Looks ... brownish?

Last chance to see these guys, they're going up for adoption on saturday.

At least it seems we won't have to wait too long for a new batch.

When is Newt not very cute?

I'm already at the point where it's painful to watch the stream because I'm mentally counting down to the kittens leaving tomorrow, but at the same time I can't stop watching because I only have ~24-ish hours of kitten watching left Like I was saying at this point with the previous litter, I don't understand how John can do this. I'm grateful that he (and others like him) are giving these cats a chance at life, but at this point my house would have roughly 500 cats in it. How could I give up Pepper? Or Newt?

Tesla would have been hard, but I'm pretty sure at this point he's really used to it, and he knows that these kittens get the best of lives. The last 2 (Spice and Scientist) sets of kittens are all over Facebook, and you can tell they are having great lives. Same with most of the Seven Kittens, there were so many fans for them. Hell I think one of the owners drove like 200 miles to pick up one of those kittens.

It is going to be sad though. Going to have to watch the stream for that instead of DVR. The chat will be nuts.

Aw, that's sweet. Newt is especially cute, and I like how Parker is escaping off the side of the picture, little dude is ridiculously zoomy.

I really hope someone takes Ripley along with one of the kitties. Or hell, just in general, but I imagine Newt especially would adapt better with mommy there for support.

I hope they are going in pairs, honestly. And Yeah, Newt with Ripley would be best case. I think either of Parker and Dallas with either Ash and Bishop would work out fine.

I have to remind my self to update the OP when the new batch debuts.

Agreed. After seeing how well the kitten pairs from the Scientist Kittens and Spice Kittens are doing, I think that's the best way.

Apparently there's going to be one pair and three solo, although one of the solos might pick up Ripley too.

Gonna be sad to see this little family broken up. They've all got such strong personalities their interactions seem more... concrete.

All the kittens were adopted, Ripley still isn't. Kinda angry none of the single adopters took her as well.

EDIT: Ripley has been adopted by "a nice English bloke". Hooray!

EDIT 2: and here is the last ever picture of the whole family together.



Bye, kitties

That Bishop/Dallas page has about a hundred new likes every two minutes, jeez.

There's a photo of the two of them hiding underneath a sofa on it too. I'm sure they'll come around to their new home pretty quick, but right now Dallas looks extraordinarily disgruntled, poor little beggar.
