Just a Basket Full of Kittens

Oh, nothing to see here... Just a basket of RIDICULOUSLY ADORABLE KITTENS.

Nope, nothing of interest here. Unless you love lots of tiny kitten paws and little ears and bellies and mewing. I'm sure none of you are interested. ;)

Today is Moo's Gotcha Day!

One this day, three years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my life: I brought Moo in from outside and he became an official part of our family. I can't believe it was so long ago since he showed up on my porch. It feels like he's always been here.

Moo actually first came around on December 21, 2008. I saw him and fed him (as I would anything that walked up to me) and petted him and loved him, and I guess he immediately sensed this was where he should be... because he never left.

The first time Moo showed up on my porch!

That cute little cow kitty camped out on my back porch for three full weeks, hardly ever leaving. I would go sit on the chair out there and read with him and relax, and if he wasn't around, I called out "Mooooooo!" and he'd come. I have no idea how he already knew his name.

After the third week, and after trying to find him a home or where he came from, I decided I'd be completely crushed if he stopped showing up or if something happened. Moo had made himself at home in my heart, so I opened my back sliding door and let him make himself at home in our home, too.

And the rest, as they say, is history! I am so lucky he chose me, and I tell him that every single day.

Moo today, happy and spoiled on the bed... like every kitty should be!

Happy Gotcha Day, Moo!

Maru Making Biscuits and Purring!

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur.
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr!

Well, Maru isn't exactly a little ball of fur, but you can hear him purring at the end of the video! I don't know if I've ever heard Maru purr before in his videos!

P.S. Cuteheads, please take a minute to head over and read my Catster post today. Loews Hotels at Universal Orlando had a great, model TNR program and now they've suddenly reversed their stance and are trapping their cared-for feral cats and sending them to a kill shelter. I'm horrified, and I hope you all will head over to see how we can help make a big stink and hopefully make them stop the madness!

Crazy Kitten vs. Paper Bag

Paper bags are so much fun for three reasons: 1.) They are great hidey places! 2.) They make tons and tons of noise. 3.) They come in different sizes so kitties can always have one that is just the right fit.

This is Poteto playing in a bag when he was just a baby in 2009, and then him hanging out in one three years later, earlier this month! He's a true bag kitty at heart.

Two Cats Tuesday: Where Moo Was All Night

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Last night I had the cuddliest night with Moo. I was out of town since Friday running the Ragnar Relay and I got back yesterday around noon. And from noon until the minute we went to bed, Moo was glued to me.

My little cuddle cow. He missed his mommy so much!

He was being so cute that I thought I'd take some pictures and share with you. This is how we were using the computer all night. I was on the couch, with the laptop on the coffee table and the game on TV... and Moo was in my lap, snuggly as could be.

I look at my mommy with this lovey dovey face all the time. I love to make eyes at her!

This is my happy face.

I like to pedal an imaginary bicycle in the air when I'm upside down like this. My paws go and go!

And I especially love to smoosh my face into things -- mom's arm, her forehead, her chin... whatever I can reach with my head.

Hope everyone has a great, cuddly day!

Slow Motion Video of a Cat and Feather Wand Toy

What's cuter than watching cats play? Watching cats play in slow motion!

It's amazing to watch their mouths and heads move and see exactly what they do when they play. Usually they're moving so fast, you can't really appreciate the beautifulness of it!

Here Mari the cat is fiercely protecting his feather wand toy. He bites it and grabs it -- but is never too busy playing to thwack away another kitty who wants a piece of the action!

P.S. Recognize these kitties? It's Cute's favorite herd of cow cats!

Cats' Eyes Before the Big Pounce!

I love the way cats' eyes get all big and huge right before they go in for the big pounce. Here are a few extreme closeups (you know I love those!) of kitties' pupils going all crazy!

P.S. Today is my dad's birthday! Let's all wish him the cutest, happiest, most fabulous day ever!
