I have some more photos from yesterday’s session with the kittens but first Andrea from Celestial Kitties blog is hosting a new fundraiser for the Winnie’s Wishes foster shelter. You donate some money and she sends you some homemade cat toys. The image in the margin takes you to the exact post with the details.
Of course, if you really want to help, you can even adopt one of the cats from the shelter and open up space for more!
There was another item of interest I ran into on the internet today. I was looking up “Napoleon Cats” just to see what information was available out on the web when I clicked on the “Google Images” button. And look what I saw!
No that isn’t Rhea Silvia…for one thing the orange forehead is on the wrong side! But it is from the same cattery, so there must be a relation. The ear tufts tell you that. Notice also that this kitten seems to be a “Standard” kitten, with the short legs, while Rhea is not.
From the look of yesterday’s shots, you might think Davout hardly got to play with the “Da Bird” toy. These pictures show that he got his share and more. At one point I tried to hold him back while letting Rhea jump for the lure…it worked but that left no hand for pictures. Rhea vaulted so high she collided with the head rest of the desk chair before falling down. The kittens don’t worry about landing on their feet so I feel bad about making them crash too many times.
Julie has been very insistent today about rail balancing. I finally resorted to a cruel trick and open the back door for him. Then when he jumps from the rail to run downstairs, I shut the door and don’t let him out. Sure it’s mean, but he needs to cut down on that game.
Davout seems to be puzzled about why Rhea looks so tiny in this picture! It took me a while to figure out the optical illusion.
