    What an adorable girl Jasmine is... love the video!  Heart

    Justie, I, too, would love to see photos of your new baby too. So glad she is helping your heart heal. 

    I know we are mostly a kitty-centric group, but here are my furkids in their new sweaters. I love dressing them up, and with temps as low as they've been, they don't seem to mind too much.

    Molly seems to like her name - along with everything else in her life - she is a most contented and cheerful little kitten! She loves whatever food I give her (or Tobie lol), she loves cuddles, she loves to play with everything except cords(!!! that's a dream come true after Fiver!!), crawls around my breakable stuff without disturbing it contentedly, and loves the other cats unconditionally. She'll sleep anywhere, but prefers it to be on or near Mum. She is not much of a purrer though, which in such a happy cat, seems weird.

    But we do have our problems. She is not happy to share her kitty litter with Jackie (she doesn't want it either), and hers must be spotless at all times (another sign of an excellent upbringing, she's used to top quality care), but I have a monster cat named Tobie who finds it essential to make his mark on ANY litter, even though he goes outside. So we've had some misunderstandings about acceptable toilet spots. But only when I am not up to being sufficiently conscientious, so I can't really blame her.

    I am absolutely torn apart with red inflamed and itchy scratches - if I could do that photo thing I'd show you - from ankle to knee, (I am actually allergic to cats Belly laugh )  because climbing Mummy is such a fun and easy way to get to her lap (those injuries are through the sweatpants!). But she seems to understand now that she can't do it that way anymore and is trying other ways of getting up to me.

    She is a very pretty cat, quite a bit like Jasmine in the face, though her ears and those tuffs are smaller. She's very dark, but not black, with swirls instead of stripes like most tabbies, and it's grey and cream. She's fluffy but not as fluffy as a purebreed longhair.

    I am looking forward to how she ends up looking, because it could go either way - from black and silver to chocolate and cream! There'll be 3 colours all told, no matter what, but which 3?  Wub

    These are the fun of kitten ownership - watching her grow, and change, seeing her personality form. Iguess it's similar to raising any animal, including the human variety. That, I was never brave enough to try!  Whistle

    I grew up with many dogs (mom was part of the professional circuit of AKC shelties), cats, and other animals, but I'm happy with just my two cats at the moment.  I love seeing everyone's animals, whatever they may be! Sunny

    Dear Justie,

    I am so sorry to read about Fiver.  He had a special place in my heart because he was the example you always used when you were giving me advice about mine.  He is missed, and you are in my heart.

    But I am delighted you got a little floppy moppy Molly Dolly.  She sounds wonderful.

    The week after we returned our little banshee kitten, we took Elder Kitten to meet the babies.  There were 3 possibilities; husband and I were deciding between two.  Or so we thought.  Third Kitten (who had never paid us a lick of attention in our previous visits) promptly settled in the carrier for a nice cozy nap.  Elder Kitten huffed a bit and acted annoyed, then flopped down herself and took a nap with her.  So Third Kitten chose us.  We've had her for about 2 months and she's been integrated into the family since that very first nap.  We never had to separate them or anything. 

    Third Kitten has encouraged some less than fabulous behavior out of Elder Kitten, so they're both learning proper manners again, but overall, OH MY!!! I never knew having two cats could be so amazing!

    How wonderful for you. I wish I could do that with my tribe. Take them for a look at the offerings so to speak. Mind you, getting even two of them to agree on anything is damn near impossible. They are clear about one thing. 

    The girls don't like Molly. But they tolerate her so long as she stays away from them. She loves them all! Tobie started out quite liking her, they share food even! But the last couple of days she's been getting on his nerves a bit because she wants to play fight and chew on his tail. This is largely because she is very easy to train and knows she cannot play rough like that with me. Poor Tobie lol

    Then, just an hour ago, he took off out of the house to get away from her, and she followed him straight out!! I'd never have known about it, if Tobie hadn't started complaining again. The little sod! She's not even 2 months old, and she's staying inside for 6, but evidently, kitten proofing the exits starts now.  OH!

    Hehe, she sounds like quite a character  Laugh

    Didn't Jackie take her under her wing paw though?  Or am I getting that wrong?  Hmm...

    My husband (especially) is still mourning the loss of our calico, Callie.  I'm thinking a calico kitten would be a wonderful Valentine's gift for him, and look what I found!


    Oh my gosh, isn't she PRECIOUS?! Wub  I don't know if I'll be able to get her -- it would mean some traveling, and I don't even know if she's still available, but oh my gosh! *squee*

    Darling daughter, if you're reading this, do NOT mention this to your dad!  It's supposed to be a surprise, and it may not actually happen! *stern look*

    Well, my sister came visiting (just dropped in from 500km away), and took some photos of Molly, 8 weeks old.

    She was being uncooperative - but at least we could find her, the rest turned invisible the moment they heard Jane's high heels.


    And another...

    Oh well, yes, so do we Aussies, I think it's Canadians that grow them on trees. Aussies prefer cats of a more demonic nature.

    The people that had the calico have never responded, so I'm guessing she's been adopted.  Ah well, I loooove that pic, just looking at it made me happy Smile

    Speaking of which, more pictures, whee~! Happy bounce  Justie, your little Molly looks like a bengal (and I don't think I've EVER seen such round ears on a cat! OH!  ), and Ninja certainly is a beauty queen!

    So happy!

    Am sitting here on the pc watching my little baby Molly in her special kitten-sized, decorated for her taste (her blankie and assorted soft toys), sleeping happily away, with Schizi in there beside her!! Happy bounce 
     
    I saw the whole thing. Schizi deciding, yup, she did like the kitten's box, nice and close to mummy and all cozy. And in she settled. Along comes kitty, she looks, she peers, eventually she stalks and steals into her own bed without disturbing Schizi.  Laugh Mind you it's a very close fit - Molly's head is hanging out of the edge like she's waiting for the guillotine blade to drop!

    They look so sweet together... Wub

    No pics of mine yet - I can't remember how I got those from the phone to the pc to the cloud to here?  Dunno

    But this video is sooo Tobie (the fat Bengal)! He looks almost exactly the same, Tobie already finds the vacuum cleaner fascinating, and come tucker time, he always parks his fat butt in front of the pc monitor and demands a grooming! I am so gonna try this!
