I'm a kitty mama now!!

Hey everybody! Over the last week almost all of my time has been devoted to caring for three of the CUTEST baby kittens you've even seen. I discovered them living underneath my porch and just couldn't bear to seem them suffer out their all alone in the crazy intense Texas heat so I took them in. Anyone with a heart would have done the same. They are just SO sweet! ;)

Their parents are two (of four) local strays that my neighbor and I look out for. Their mommy is so emaciated though I didn't even notice she was preggers! Crazy huh?

Here's a photo of the kitties coming out from underneath the porch to play with us the first time we met them. Honestly, it was love at first sight. :)

A few days later (on my day off) I scooped these little buggers up and took 'em to the vet. They had a little cold so we got them on some medicine to get away those pesky eye boogers and clear up their respiratory infections. Poor things! I can't imagine living under my porch was a good place to grow up. At least now they are happy and have two loving new parents to look after them. The vet also got us some worm medicine and told us we had 2 girls and 1 little boy on our hands. They were estimated at 5 weeks old and all weighted roughly 1 pound (give or take). At first, while I wanted to make sure they were all fit and healthy I didn't expect to keep all 3. Let's face it... that's a lot of cats! But now I don't think Marcus and I will be able to part with them. They are all so friendly, playful and cute and I can't imagine what it'd be like to split them up.

Here's a picture of our big boy "Flynn":

Yes, he is named after Kevin Flynn (from Tron) and he is one badass kitty! He's going to be SO big and fat and fluffy! I'm so excited. Those have always been my favorite kinds of kitties. ;)

And here are our 2 little girls "Luna" and "Zora". "Luna" is the black one (duh!) and is named after my favorite Sailor Moon kitty. You have no idea how long I have dreamed of owning a cat of my own so I could name her this. It's super dorky, but I don't care! She's adorable!

Little "Zora" is a cutie too, but damn is she an attention whore. She likes to climb on EVERYTHING and is so good at it now that she will start at your feet and be at your head before you know it! It's really cute, but also really painful as she isn't always so nice with her claws and she is scurrying along your body. :(

See what I mean??

I think "Zora" secretly wants to be a parrot because her favorite spot is on my shoulder. And boy does she love my earrings! I gotta be careful with this one... I foresee her making it very difficult to wear nice clothes. And tights? Not even an option! Those would be snagged all over the place in an instant. sigh* I suppose it's a small price to pay for cuteness though. And I'm so proud of these little boogers too. They've gotten so much better since we brought them in a little over a week ago. At first I was bottle feeding the 2 girls (they were WAY tiny!), but now they are all eating, drinking and using the litter box on their own like big boys and girls. Plus, their little cold is pretty much all gone! "Zora" was the worse off and obviously the runt so she's still a little sneezy, but the other two are in tip top shape now. ;)

I'm so excited! I've never had my own pet before. Starting with 3 babies at once may be a bad idea... but hopefully they won't be TOO troublesome. I know I'm going to have to kitty proof the fuck out of this place... and I'm terrified of them finding their way into my craft space... but I suppose we'll take it one step at a time. Wish me luck!


  1. AHHHHHH!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! They're SOOO adorable!!!! It's one of the best things ever to be a kitty momma!! Treasure these days, they are at their most precious! =)

    They look a little like Sophie when he was a baby!

  5. Awww thanks for your kind words ladies! I am so in love with all these little buggers and am happy I could save them and give them a good home. :)
