Kitties, Kitties and then some more Kitties

Awww man, I'm so bad! I just can't help myself! We've taken kitties before and found them new homes when they needed them and we've been good and never kept a kitty. I don't think we're doing so good this time.
Our first set of kitties in need was 9 years ago, with Che Guevara and Gael Garcia Bernal's mom. She had a liter of 2 boys and 2 girls behind my grandma's trash can. Okay, we kept the two boys but in subsequent rescues we didn't keep any! There was a stray and her 5 kittens about 6 years ago and then again 4 years ago with a mama named Bast and her litter of 7. Well, okay, that's where Daniel came from. But we didn't keep the other 6!

There was also a random kitty here or there, sometimes we fostered for the Southwest Washington Humane Society, sometimes we just helped a friend and their neighborhood stray.
This time though, we're just not having such luck. Not that people haven't wanted them, they're just to adorable to pass along. Our good friend Danielle befriended a neighborhood wild child cat named Jade, whom then promptly gave birth to 6 adorable kittens. Long story short, we ended up with 4 kittens and a mama this last Monday. Our intention was of course to find these beautiful little babies good homes and keep Mama Jade, as she's a great mouser.
What was that folks say about intentions? Anyhow, looks like three of these babies, promptly named Grey Paw, Frida Kahlo and Matt, are going to make their home with us as well. Damn! I can't help but hum the tune to Another One Bites The Dust. Intentions that is.

  1. Ohhhh they got ya! They are so darn cute. The kids are super excited to hear that they get to see them grow up! I have always thought it would be awesome to have kittens grow up with their mama! If we could have kept them we were going to keep Jade and a baby. She is such a good mama. Enjoy there friskyness. Thanks again!
