Transport Day: Our Favorite Momma, Poppy... and Sylvestra Too! #PoppySylvestra

Hurray! It's another transport day! This one is truly unique. We are actually doing a reverse transport. A kitty that we transported a couple months ago up north, is actually coming back down south!

You might remember The Bakery Bunch family of cats. They were all named after bread: Poppy (the mom), Melba, Wonder, Raisin and Pumpernickel. We rescued them from animal control in Fort Lauderdale, FL and they went up to HART of Maine rescue. Well, Poppy's babies all found their forever homes (in pairs, yay!) and now it's Poppy's turn.

Poppy and her babies in Florida... before she went to Maine!
Poppy has a very special home waiting for her. One of her original transporters for her first trip, Cutehead Melanie M., absolutely fell in love with her while she was driving her... and decided she wanted to adopt her!

Rules are that kitties have to make it to their final destination (no cat-napping, no matter how much the drivers joke about it), and if you want to adopt, you have to adopt from their destination rescue. So Melanie put in an application with HART, and now we're doing a reverse transport to get Poppy back down to Georgia!

I love Poppy. She is one of the kitties who was in the kitty condo we had, and my parents fostered her and her babies after that. I don't say this lightly... she is one of my all-time favorites of all the cats we've helped. Sweetest girl ever!

Yay for Poppy getting a great forever home! She will officially be the most-traveled Cutehead kitty ever!

Also on this transport we have Sylvestra. Sylvestra was saved from New York Animal Control (NYACC) and is heading to Rikki's Refuge in Virginia. She has some issues with her hind legs. They aren't fully developed and it wasn't looking good for her there, so this is a miracle and so wonderful!

Sylvestra is hopping on the transport in New Jersey and will ride along until Virginia, where she'll hop off and Poppy will keep going!

It should be an amazing day!

Follow Along!
You can follow along with their transport today and tomorrow on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #PoppySylvestra. I'll be tweeting as @YourDailyCute, of course! Help us cheer these kitties on!

Poppy hits the road at 6:00 a.m. from Cumberland, Maine to kick things off tomorrow!

Smiling Cat Smiles on Command

Picnic the cat is a happy kitty! She has the cutest smile, and she does it whenever her mom tells her to!

Sure, her smiles turn into yawns, but they start out as the sweetest head-tilted, lips-turned-up happy face ever!

You make us smile, Picnic!

Cat Hugs Stuffed Bunny

Kitties that cuddle are cute, but kitties that cuddle with little stuffed animals are even cuter!

Clearly this cat loves her bunny, and probably hugs her all the time. She's hers and hers alone and she's going to love her and pet her and hug her, and maybe call her George.

Three Piglet Kittens

This little kitty went to sleep. This little kitty meowed a little bit. And this little kitty tried to climb of her bed and go mew mew mew mew, all the way back to mom!

Does anyone know what kind of beds these piggies are? So cute! I wonder if they are just for kittens or if they are actually for something else? I love them!

Two Cats Tuesday: Moo's Extreme Close-Up and Pimp's Chinny-Chin-Chin

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today you get to see Moo extra super close-up and in your face, plus Pimp's adorable whiskery chin! What a fantastically cute day!

Let's start with Moo. He's always hamming it up for the camera (when I can get him to sit still, that is).

Don't I look sweet and innocent? Don't let my mom you otherwise.
Moo, of course you are sweet an innocent when you're just looking cute like that! It's when you're terrorizing your brother or flying around the house and eating all the food but your own that you're not so innocent!

Plus, you have a little booger in your nose.

Booger? What booger? You can't see a booger...

And now for Pimp's fabulous chin! He has a very cute chin. Sometimes he gets a little bit of acne on it, but it's still super cute.

This week he was looking up at something and just looking so marvelous, so I had to take a picture. Just look at his wonderful whiskers just all over the place. He is the happiest kitty!

I am the happiest 14-year-old kitty ever. I love sitting on the couch and relaxing.
And he does! It's what he does best.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Cat vs. Helicopter

Toy helicopters look like giant bugs flying around in the air, so they must be swatted.

And when they're not flying, they need to be meowed at to get moving... so they can be swatted.

Cat Steals Towel from Clothesline

The towels have been hanging to dry in the delicious, fresh sunlight and now they're ready to be used! First one to get to them, gets them... and in this case, it's the cat!

Kitty knows there's nothing better than a clean towel, and the fact that the towel is hanging on a clothesline is not going to stop him from enjoying his nice, warm snuggle towel.

Kitten fetches a towel!
