Little Faux is the softest kitty EVER. He's like kissing a cloud with this fluffy white fur. Today he played camera tricks! I started taking his picture and he DISAPPEARED in front of my eyes! Don't worry, he was immediately located and thoroughly snuggled! Heres PROOF of his powers!!!
AAAAAHHH!!! Faux Paw's breeder-mommy sent me newborn pictures of his litter this past week, and I can't stop SMILING. I have a CUTENESS OVERLOAD every time I look at them!! He's still only four months now, but seeing him THAT small got me thinking of all my fur-children as babies. So here it is... Get ready to die.
BABY FAUX PAW. OMG!!!!!!!!!
Hes the world's cutest kitten!!! I wanna squeeze them all!!!!!
BABY OOKIE. WEIRDOOO.Hehehehe
She was born with 6 toes on each paw. ( her full name is Orchid, because her feet looked like flower petals.)
BABY BACARDI: MY FIRST BORN SON! LOL
I hand-raised him since he was 3 weeks old, SIX YEARS AGO. He's my rock, and my first love. ( I was still in High School!)
The boy kitties are by far the biggest babies in the house!!! Bacardi in particular needs more attention than most, curling up in my arms and flipping on his back, demanding i carry him around like a baby. (when my arms are not already occupied by 9 month old and 3 year old sons.) He also requests fresh water in a glass with iceon occasion. (so don't open the freezer unless you intend to accommodate him as well.) The addition of another boy kitty has thrown him a bit off, and while they do get along rather well, fighting for affection has become a game of theirs. :)
Window bathing is TOP PRIORITY for pretty kitties. Faux Paw wasn't quick enough to grab the sunny spot today. His cold shoulder is so cute. Silly Ookie tried so hard to get a reaction out of him. Hehehehe.
Faux Paw is my muse for these recent sketches. His solid white coat makes for clean lines and easy doodling. I'm sure he will have many more "Ink-Adventures" to come. My favorite is "Team CoCo" in tribute to Conan O'Brien. Whats YOUR favorite?!
The house female loves taking walks on the deck. A little fresh air does a fur-ball good... for a minute or two. Today Ookie finds out the price for house re-admission... Her dignity.
FACT: Bacardi was the runt of his litter, rescued at just 2 weeks old. So small, with black stripes, GIANT ears, and fangs that always seemed to stick out... Like a little BAT, hence the name Bacardi. ( a white rum whos label features a black bat. )
As stated in my first post, kitten love for Faux Paw (pretty little persian he is) was not immediate. Our (normally) very friendly tabbies snubbed their noses to the flat-faced alien. While little Faux seemed completely unfazed by the dramatic glares, heavy tension, and the occasional hiss and head wallop, three days of this was BREAKING MY HEART. Time to take action.
ENTER: Comfort Zone with Feliway starter kit. Basically, a scentless air-freshener that claims to release stress reducing pheromones for the low-low price of $50! Not even kidding, our total was $50 for one months supply!! Well here goes nothing, I plug it in... and....Well, nothing... But thats the point isn't it?!? Maybe I'm just seeing what I want to see, but everyone's back to their normal, fabulous selves. Lounging, eating, and even PLAYING together. So now I'm left with the question, miracle product or placebo effect? What are your thoughts? One thing is certain, my house is ADORABLE!
So. A blog... Let me start by saying, if you're looking for profound revelations and deep thoughts from the innermost workings of my mind....this is not the place. BUT if you're in the mood to witness the cutest place on earth, look no further, for it is my home. This is the lives of three furballs, picked to live in a house, work together and .... Oh shit, I think The Real World already coined that one....Uuuhh, this is a blog about felines... If you've ever created a cat Facebook album entitled: "The Kids", or had a half-hour conversation with an animal that cannot speak, of perhaps you just love CUTENESS. This blog is for you. ENJOY.
Today, our newest member Faux Paw (4 month old, male persian) meets Bacardi (6 year old male stripey.) for the first time. :)
Okay... So it wasn't love at first sight, but what would you do if some white-fluff with a pancake face walked up to you?! Let the awkwardness begin!
