Caffeine Plus Kittens Equals Crazypants

Lionel is intrigued by the Peppermint Mocha Latte from Starbucks.
FYI... Buy One, Get One deal on holiday drinks at Starbucks between 2 and 5 pm through November 18th.  A happy caffeinated buzz for everyone!!

But you know what happens when you mix kittens and caffeine...
You get crazypants.
 Crazy, naughty shoe chewing Lionel...
shows you exactly how big his great big mouth is.
(And go ahead and compare him size-wise to a size 8 ladies shoe)
And just when you think that he's getting back to his sweet self...
Mr. Cuckoo-For-Cocoa-Puffs gets just a tiny bit fresh.


After ignoring the coffee cup for ten minutes or more, Willie Rae decided that she needed a shot of whatever Lionel had so that she could keep up.
(FYI: If we're measuring again, that's a Starbucks Tall cup)
 Twisted Sister Willie Rae soon began launching sneak attacks on Lionel,
And on my leg too (ouch).
Willie Rae eschewed the shoe itself and decided to go after the laces instead.
 "Oh... The Lady's shoelace is already falling apart in three places because of kitten attacks?"
"You don't really have a problem with that, do you Lady?"
(And I absolutely have to mention at this point how much I love her gorgeous eye color)
After giving up on the shoelaces, Willie Rae moved on to Mama's tail instead.
(also... MODESTY MAMA!!!!)


Willie Rae took a break from the nuttiness to pose for a set of Glamour Shots.
(Yep... just a couple days after I was practically begging her to sit still, she finally performs)
 But such a beautiful performance... in profile even!
Don't you want to kiss that little face until she squirms and bites to get away?
Don't worry.... I did it for all of us ;-)


A certain young man grew enamored of the lens cap yesterday.
He reminded me of someone...
Cruzie Adams, perhaps?
Or maybe it was Henry Washington.


Big things are happening for all of the residents of Teeny Tiny Tabby Town this weekend.  Henry, Tika, and Abby visit the vet this afternoon for their health re-check.  If everyone is deemed healthy, they will be returning to adoption hours at Petco on Saturday.  Crossed fingers and quick prayers are very welcome for our three teenage wonders.

Lionel and Willie Rae will also be at Petco this weekend.  I've been told that a lady who met and fell in love with Lionel last weekend has asked to meet him again tomorrow.  I'll squeeze him extra for all of us before he goes.  

Also.... I hear our little Mally Boo Boo has an admirer waiting to meet her.  

This could be another fabulous weekend for our kittens.  I'm excited to see what happens.  Look for the big news report on Monday.

Have a great weekend everyone.


Oh... and before I go
Look at the two lovelies who joined our rescue last week.
Two little babies born to a feral mama (there is one more baby not in the photo).
Let the squeeing commence.


  1. Kelly-I'm sure I know well enough that "no kittens were allowed actual coffee or harmed in any other way during the making of this post", but a disclaimer always is a good idea for those other lawyer types.

    Anyway,crossing my fingers for lots of adoptions this weekend.

    1. Yes, yes... Let's include the "No kittens were harmed in the creation of this post. All caffeinated beverages pictured were consumed by the photographer... who was actually able to stay away to see the end of a television program that started at 10 pm as a result of said drink."

      Kittens produce their own natural caffeine.

    2. That would be stay "awake". I obviously have not had my coffee yet this morning.

  2. I love love love Peppermint Mochas!!! I was able to make it through my day yesterday because of the vente I needed afer dropping $60 on flea meds at the vet...

    I love the little caramel spot on the top of Willie Rae's head! *kiss* Good luck to everyone tomorrow!!

    1. I feel your pain and agree a Peppermint Mocha is an excellent cure. I plan on going through the drive-thru on the way home with Henry, Tika, and Abby this afternoon (and I don't even pay their vet bills).

      I will absolutely kiss that spot for you. Willie Rae is quite used to it by now. That spot has become a kissing target in the foster room.

  3. two for one....geez, I wouldn't sleep for days :)

    Paws crossed for an AWESOME adoption weekend. I am out at the Petco on Sunday and hoping for the same thing. (mostly it is Bourb and I hanging out answering questions)

    1. Good luck to you too! I have a feeling that I'm coming home empty-handed... heart-broken and happy all at the same time.

  4. Aww, caffinated kittens! Peppermint is closely related to nip, probably what facinated them!
    Hope you get lots of adoptions!
    Those new ones are fluffilicious!

    1. Aren't they darling? I can't get over how Willie Rae's ruff is growing in this fall. She's so much fluffier than the others (and yet nothing, I'm sure, in comparison to the new babies!)
