This is the last child we are going to adopt for a Very Long Time!

There has been a lovely kitty that comes into Brad and Kami's yard frequently.  She's friendly and seems to be used to humans, allowing them to pet her.  They were pretty sure she is being taken care of by someone in the neighborhood since she's well-fed and healthy looking.  Recently she has been bringing a kitten with her, also friendly and lovable.  Too lovable!

My son blames ME for giving him the Cat Loving Gene!  Along with a lot of other Undesirable Traits.
He has fallen in love with this little kitty and would have liked to keep her, but his dowager cat Whisker Woman would throw a major hissy fit.  She barely tolerates their other cat, Ernie.  Whiskers did not want to share her man with Kami when she and Brad first started dating.  Another female in the family would probably put her over the edge. 

Brad sent me these pictures to entice me.

And of course, I succumbed.
Kami is feeding the Mom and her child.
I want to mention that these kitties, even though someone *might* be taking care of them, are running loose in town where a busy street goes right in front of Brad's house.  Also the mother is not spayed which will mean more cute kitties in the future.  I know!...I can't save them all!!!  But....

Now we have another little furball.  And this is the Very Last One for a very long time!  I told them NOT to send any more pictures!  DO NOT mention Cute Kitty who needs a home to me!  Five is the limit!!!

Meanwhile the two other little kids are recovering from their spaying.  This was taken in the evening when they returned home.

They are now back in action, bad as ever, eagerly trying to find ways into the bathroom and intimidate the intruder, whom we are naming Sissy.

Needless to say, I've gotten nothing else done.  No rughooking, no knitting, no nothing!
That's the news from Cat Land.


  1. Hello Pat, thank you for the very kind comment you left on my blog and for making yourself known to me :-) I'm currently at the office and supposed to be working, but I've had a quick look through your blog and website. You are very talented!!! I love your rugs and am so impressed with you knitting abilities. My knitting consists of straight lines to make square cat blankets for the local humane least now I have learned how to cast on and off and don't have to ask my mum to do it for me, haha.

    Your kitties are gorgeous and I'm guessing your home is VERY active with two kittens (beautiful calicos btw) and now another kitten. I always say there is always room in the heart for one's just the house I'm worried about - LOL!

    I'm following you now and look forward to reading about your kitty adventures and seeing more of your lovely creations.

    warm regards,

  2. You old softie! Brad knew you would not refuse. I am looking forward to lots of new adventures with your expanding brood. I assume that Deiter remains the King of the Castle, but it will be interesting to see how he adapts to his new siblings.

  3. She is adorable! Why not a half dozen??? My best wishes to Dieter in a household full of women - OH! and to Zip too,

  4. Oh Pat - she is adorable - how could you resist! Look at that face and love her markings. Okay give it up - she's not called "newkitten" i'm sure! What's her name!

    So happy the babies are doing good after their "ordeal" (in their eyes) and man oh man you will have your hands full with those 3 little ones - but I'm sure Deiter and Tippy will help keep everyone in line!


  5. Never say never you weak woman!! Your kitties have lots to be thankful for!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you ALL.

  6. Hi Pat, the girls look a bit put out in the picture but I am glad they are back to normal now.
    What a delightful kitten, it looks as though it might be fluffy when it's grown. I know how you feel, if it wasn't for Tom having some sense we would be over run with cats. lol

  7. Pat, let's face it. Once a softee, always a softee. You're in it for the long haul ,girl. Your little furry family are lucky to have you and Zip as loving and caring parents. JB

  8. I'm having the same problem. A momma showed up with her four kittens in May and we are still taking care of three (one disappeared). Momma disappeared after a few months (before I could get her spayed) and just re-appeared last week with a new kitten. There is also another mommma and two kittens roaming, and plenty of boys. I wish I could get them all fixed. Hang in there, they are so sweet!

  9. I'm back looking at that adorable face!

  10. Oh what a cutie that Sissy is! I'm sure she will be a good kittie( do I sound like Brad?) and find her way into the pecking order of the cat domain. The lady I used to work for at the gift shop always has at least 5 or 6 cats at the same time. It always seemed to work out and the cats seemed to enjoy having each other around. Sending good wishes ( but I'm sure you wish it was kittie food instead!) Maybe Santa knows a good place to get litter and food at a good price this season!
    Hugs and purrrrrrs!

  11. Congrats Pat!
    I'm sure Sissy will be very happy living with you and Zip.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Hugs :)

  12. What a wonderful thing to do. I have a 16 year old cat and she would just have a fit if I brought in another cat. She walks our property line and keeps all other cats out of her yard.
    I would like to have one more but will wait until she is gone and boy do I hate to think of that.

  13. Dear Pat,

    Just popped in to say hi and as I see that you have a new feline in your family, I was wondering if you would like to take some more wonderful pictures and enter Ms Kitty's photo contest for the calendar bookmarks. We would love to see some photographs in our email in box.

    Wishing you all the best,
    Miss Kitty and Egmont

  14. Ooooooh my! What a sweet little fuzzy gal! There is no way anyone could say no to that one! Congratulations on your newest addition! :-)

  15. Hey Pat, I have this kitten hanging around in my backyard and was wondering... Ok, just kidding.
    We are going to have to start calling you "cat woman" for short!! She is cute!

  16. Isn't it nice to follow other cat lovers? You have got to be a beautiful person Pat...I can tell and you know us cat lovers know these things! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family...


Thanks for visiting!
