Where did 7 weeks go?

I had a few busy days this week with cat-sitting but for the weekend it will be quiet. Only two homes to care for cats. November will be quieter than usual but steady enough and that's because most people won't travel now until Christmas. Christmas will, once again, be NUTS! So this is the time to catch up on projects at home.

Kane and I got soaked yesterday on our walk. It has been off and on raining for 3 days now and yesterday was ridiculous. When it rains, there are no squirrels and birds in the tree outside the cat-room window where the kittens sit and watch.
That's a bummer, right Nigel?
"I'm bummed"

I did get one photo of a cat in our neighbourhood before it started to pour.
 My plan was to photograph trees but 10 minutes into the walk...a downpour. Home...sun. Then it's spittin' rain again. Nigel has the right idea.

Adorable little Bree has found a home.
Nigel...maybe. I will post about the new homes when I have them all adopted. I'm not rushing this as they have to be GREAT homes. I looked on the website for our shelter #'s ..148 cats. I'm sure with that number they will let them stay with me until the right home is found. I hope so.

Isn't Audrey & her mom beautiful. Her eyes are now green like mom's. That's Annie's paw as Audrey is all grey. Beautiful charcoal grey.
Today they are 7 weeks.

Update on my daughter's adventure. They are now in Cusco, Peru and will be hiking up to 
Machu Picchu tomorrow.

hugs, Deb


  1. Awww...such cuties! I am so glad Bree found a home! They do indeed all need someone special to take them! Their mom is so pretty! Hope you have a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie

  2. How sweet! I love you blog, beautiful pictures...
    Have a nice day and take care!
    Best wishes,

  3. Nigel is the most adorable bummed out kitty ever =)

  4. I'm glad Bree has found a home.
    Will Annie be up for adoption, too ?
    She is such a sweet girl.
    (Hi Audrey, didn't forget about you!)

  5. Those are the cutest pictures. So very happy Bree has a home. I just know you will be successful in finding a home for the other one.

  6. If only New Zealand wasn't so far away... and my current rescued feline darling was braver with other cats (the old boy just wouldn't cope, and I did promise him that he was spending the rest of his life with me back when we adopted each other back in March 2006).

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if Annie and Audrey could find a forever home where they could be together ...

    I will send them happy, positive thoughts - and grateful thoughts to you, dear Deb, for making these weeks such a loved and cared for time,

  8. Glad the fabulous adventure is going well. Those gorgeous grey kitties must find great homes I hope. You are so right to be cautious.. Adorable.. Hugs GJ xx

  9. Seven weeks! Oh my the time has flown by! They are all so sweet! I am glad Bree has a home and I'm hoping the others will soon! Enjoy the sweeties while you can Deb! hugs, Linda

  10. Same weather here in Sweden too :(
    The kittens and their mother are sooo cute :)
    Hope they stay at your house until they all get new forever homes !
    My mom is soooo jelous on your daughters trip !!
    Have a pawsome weekend :)

  11. We are praying, and praying hard, for Audrey and Annie to be adopted together. We so want Annie not to be left behind.

    Hiking in Cuzco? Was there years ago and in the thin air, energy was at a premium. Machu Picchu was an experience if a lifetime! Now, you can climb Huayna Picchu too! Wish I were young again. Then again, maybe not.

  12. I'm glad Bree has a home lined up, and I know the rest will find perfect homes too, courtesy of you. :) Love those kitties.

  13. I think my first Gypsy sighting must have been when he was 7 or eight weeks. So tiny. But what a blessing! They are adorable!
