The M Litter kittens will be leaving us soon so we took some time today to try and catch a few photos. That turned out to be pretty hard, as the kittens were in a playful mood – and moving fast.

Here’s Mitzi, one of three female black/brown tabbies in the litter.

The G Litter kittens are two years old today, and here’s a photo of Gracie taken this morning by Michaella, who writes:

She’s been outside this morning surveying the scene and climbing up her ‘scratching post’ with doubles as a small Yucca Tree! She continues to enjoy games with the kids chasing the string around the lounge – and outsmarts them as always!

Lexi wearing her cat tunnel

Isn’t this a great photo of Lexi (ex Ksenia)?

It reminds me of one time when we got a cat tunnel out of the cupboard, and untied one of the two strings that was keeping it coiled. Before we could untie the second string, the cats started playing with it. Stayed that way for months!

And here’s Lexi in a more conventional pose at her home with Danny and Lucy:

Movie review: A Street Cat Named Bob

About a month ago I was on a flight across the Pacific and decided to watch A Street Cat Named Bob.

What a treat. It had everything I look for in a movie:

  • It’s based on a true story
  • It makes you feel good
  • It has a cat

Bob the cat is played by … Bob the cat. And it’s no wonder he’s now a movie star – he’s got the looks and the moves.

The real film critic I heard on the radio the other day liked it too, so I guess that settles it. 🙂

Cats love boxes – everyone knows that, of course. But did you know that kittens also love buckets?

The most popular cat toys are often just things you find around the house.

18-month-old Siberian cat Hoku, 16 Feb 2017

Lovable Hoku has inherited her mother Calina‘s personality. She’s a cat who doesn’t know the meaning of “no, you shouldn’t do that.”

She’s also just as good as her mother in the agility department.

The four M Litter kittens went to The Vets today for their 12-week vaccinations.

In the photo above, they are relaxing on a new rug that a friend brought from Canada. It has a photograph of polar bears, which makes for some interesting pictures with the cats. 🙂

Monte is the only male and the only non-tabby in the M Litter. He has loads of energy and is happy to play on his own, with his sisters, or with the big cats.
