Three Cats Thursday: Pimp, Moo, Phantom... and a Baby Lamb!

Happy Three Cats Thursday, Cuteheads! I wanted to catch you all up on what we've been up to since I haven't posted in a little while -- and show you the cutest baby lamb I got to meet!

First, a few of you have emailed me just checking in to see how we were doing since I haven't posted. You are all so sweet! We are all doing great. I just got back from a little vacation to North Carolina and feel fabulous. The boys did pretty good at home while I was gone. A friend of mine watched them, but obviously they missed their mommy. I'm glad to be back!

Now, on to the Cute!

Last week, Phantom tried to be a daredevil... and then didn't know how to get out of the situation he got himself in. He somehow jumped up on top of the shower stall!

Uh oh. Now what?
Moooommmm... Come get me, OK?
I heard some kind of noise as I was brushing my teeth and then looked back and there he was. He was basically tight-rope walking up there, and I had to reach up and grab him. He hugged me so tight on the way down! I bet he doesn't try to pull that stunt anymore.

Now let's get some Pimp and Moo in here...

Look how cute they were snuggling (this is as close as they snuggle, you guys!). This particular cat bed is hot property. They all use it, and it's like first come, first served. Someone is always on it!

I let Pimp have the bed today because he an old man, and elderly first!
And next... let's talk about this baby lamb! Oh my goodness, he was the highlight of my vacation!

I went to my parent's house near Asheville, NC, and we visited the Biltmore Estate. A friend of mine works there (you might remember George Ricci from the Save Loews Cats mission a couple years ago!), and so he was able to get us to where no one else can really go.

We visited the sheep barn on the property and got to meet so many cuties! I'll post more about them later -- one was a cat, of course! -- but I wanted to show you this cute baby lamb!

One of the farmers brought out this adorable one-day-old baby lamb for us! I thought he was just bringing him out to show us, but when he started to hand him over to me, I am pretty sure my mouth dropped. I got so excited!

And so this was me for the next five minutes... Happy happy happy!

Ah! He was the size of a cat. And so cute. And he baaaaaaaaed so loud! I couldn't stop kissing him.
I wanted to take him home!
Could you just die?! He was so cute! He was the runt of the litter, and so they took him to bottle feed him since his mom was rejecting him. Who would reject such an adorable nugget? He even had his umbilical cord still attached. So cute!

Thanks for keeping checking in on us, everyone! I will do my best to post more. I love sharing with you all!

Three Cats Thursday: Phantom's Nose, Moo's Wake-Up Tactic and Pimp Wants Pot Roast

Happy Three Cats Thursday, Cuteheads! Today the boys wanted to give you a little bit of a buffet of kitty cuteness. Just some random stuff they did this week!

First up, Moo wanted to show you how he wakes me up every morning. The pictures are not the best since it is dark (he wakes up early!), but I just think they are super cute because it's really what we do every morning! He is such a love bug.

First I give mom's nose the side head rub.
The the front head butt.
And then back to the side head rub. Now she's gets up and feeds me!
And then Phantom wants you to smooch his adorable black nose!

You can't decide whether to smooch or boop me, right?
And last, but definitely not least (no one puts Pimpy in the corner!), Pimp wants to show you how serious he is about wanting some of my dinner all the time. This is his "Give me some of your pot roast" face. He means business.

Pot roast, I'm watching you.

22 Kittens and 1 Momma Cat!

Yesterday I promised you a ton of cute kitties, and here they are! Right now we have 22 adorable kittens and a sweet momma cat tucked away safely, soundly and loved in foster homes all over South Florida... waiting for our next transport!

That's a lot of kitties! They aren't leaving town for a few more weeks, but I couldn't wait for you to meet them!

I'll post more about them and updates as we go along, but here's a bunch of cute pictures of cute kitties to finish our your week the best way ever!

The Mafia Kittens: Catnip Capone, Kitty Kelly and Tabby Genovese! 
Venus and her four newborn babies. They were born in the shelter overnight and we busted them all out the very next day. Safe! They are just starting to open their eyes now. It's been about a week. 
The first half of the Blue Kittens: Periwinkle and Sky!
The other Blue Kittens: Powder and Indigo! 

Thomas and Belle!
First half of the Dream Basketball kittens: Lebron and James! These four were rescued from a "free kittens" listing we saw on Craiglist. Never list pets for free on Craiglist. There are bad people out there!
Jordana and Pippa! These four were gorgeous and fluffy in their Craiglist picture. When we got them, it was a whole different story. Crusty and sick with eye infections, parasites and dehydrated. :( We're fixing them up!
Cutie bunch of kitties rescued from a horse ranch!
Lee, rescued from a rental property. 
So there's that! We will probably add one more baby to the bunch -- Lee needs a buddy! All of these adorable babies will be heading up north on April 26, so we have a few more weeks to enjoy them down here and watch them grow up a little!

Huge thanks to all our fosters and Good Karma Pet Rescue (the best!) for rescuing them all down here and making sure they get everything they need before they travel!

Three Cats Thursday: Moo and Phantom Love Each Other and Pimp Doesn't Care

Happy Three Cats Thursday, Cuteheads! It's a miracle, I tell you. Moo and Phantom love each other.

It's not like the cuddle up in a tight ball and sleep together all the time, but it's a loving tolerance -- and it's super cute to catch when it happens!

A couple days ago, I came home to this:

Why yes, we are snuggling.
I think that's the first time I've actually caught them in a sleepy snuggle! And so I had to zoom in to get a closer picture. I was really hoping I wouldn't ruin it! They both usually start walking to the camera when they see it.

I knew that cow cat would love me eventually!
Isn't that just so sweet? It wasn't that long ago, it seems, that I had to lock them in their own rooms when I went to work because I was afraid of leaving them out together all day! Whoooo hooo!

And then, another day this week, I caught them doing this. (They do this more often. They love to lick each other!)

They are such lover boys!

And meanwhile, Pimp is all like...

I'll just take care of myself. 
And then later, after all of this peace and harmony wears off, we're back to normal...

P.S. Make sure you all come back tomorrow... I have 22 tiny kittens and a sweet momma cat for you to meet! (Yes, 23 cats!)

Cowboy Kitty Goes for a Ride!

Giddy up! It's a tabby cowboy cat!

Why walk around the living room yourself when you can ride your trusty kid instead? Hop on and hold on tight, little kitty!

Thanks to Cutehead Michele G. for sending over in cute cowboy cat video!

QUESTION FROM CUTE: Have any of you ever used any automatic feeders that open only for a specific cat? I am really thinking about looking into one for Pimp. That way I can make it so his food can be out all day and he can eat when he wants, and the other two fatties can't devour it before he does. Pimp is a grazer, and could stand to GAIN some weight, but Moo and Phantom or gulpers, and always finish off his before he can get back to it for another nibble. Any ideas?
