Kittens, Mermaids, Etc.

I just realized yesterday afternoon that the kittens are a week old! I tried to get some pictures of them, with minimal success. For whatever reason, Matilda wasn't very patient with the picture-taking process, so I got a couple of shots & left them alone. Here they are in their little kitten-pile. From top to bottom, Bailey, Glenda, Mickey, and Charlie. Glenda & Charlie are spoken for, I think, but Bailey & Mickey are still fair game.

And here's a close-up of Mickey, right next to Matilda's foot for a size comparison. Isn't he cute? The wittle skwunched up face, teeny nose, and stubbly whiskers...this is dangerous stuff. This is how I got so many cats, people.

I'm going to try to get a good picture of Glenda today - her eyes are opening, several days ahead of schedule. Her right eye is completely open, and her left eye is about 1/3 open - she kinda looks like a pirate. :-)

And here is what happens when I get distracted while dressing Wendy...do you see a problem here?!?

I didn't know that mermaids had toes, but this one apparently does.

And here she is playing piano like Grandpa. She loves anything that makes music, but she really loves the piano. She climbs right up on the bench and plays with both hands, and it looks so cute! She's been doing it for a couple of months, and this is the first time I've been able to get a good picture. Little does she know that in about four years, she'll be complaining about having to practice her piano lesson...

The kittens are so cute! And since I love black cats so much I wish I could take Bailey...sniff, sniff.

I remember those swunched up wittle noses. We had a cat that had about 2 litters a year when I was growing up.

And I love the mermaid toes! Too funny!

What an adorable pile of kitties! I wish I could kiss that sweet Mickey's face.

LOL! at the mermaid photo....she'd make a good one. Very cute. ;)
