Kitten Update | Petrified Chiweenie


I'm sure everyone's used to Frankie, the brindle chiweenie, being scared stiff frequently, but

why-oh-why is the chiweenie petrified this time???
 
 Perhaps it is because the momma cat goes from this to . . .

. . . THIS!

Or perhaps even . . .
. . . THAT!

It is true, furiends, we're under cat siege.
We are sentenced to live with seven felines!

The other day, M put the chiweenie and me in the outdoor cat enclosure for "socialization" purposes. Somebody call the humane society.

The kittens are now three months old. They are healthy, playful, curious, and mischievous.

Here are some recent kitten pictures:

Charlie Chuckles
The tuxedo kitten. The only male of the litter.
He is the leader. He is a terror in disguise, but M dotes on him. He knows about her weakness so when she calls him he comes running and screaming. I hope Charlie and M live happily ever after together.

Puddles
She's beautiful and she knows it. She spends her days lounging around, mostly on her back, sucking at her paws. I think she's a bit "slow," if you know what I mean.

Clorox
Our muted tortie.
Clorox, aka Alley Alarm, aka Squirt is the one to watch out for. She's the wildest of the bunch. If I didn't know for a fact that she was raised here, I'd call her a feral kitten. The chiweenie and I need to be careful around her because she snaps.
As you can see, the little kittens are all growing up fast while developing their personalities. M had made an appointment with an animal behaviorist, but it was simply too expensive. In lieu of, she decided to recruit her human friends that she equips with squirt bottles and the ultrasonic pet trainer (the PetZoom) the minute they step through the door. She says instead of paying an animal behaviorist, she'd rather spend the money taking her friends to dinner as a way to thank them for helping out. Any volunteers?

We are one nutty mixed household and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Well, if that grey and white cat can turn completely black, I think I would be a bit scared myself!! :)

Pretty scary looking creatures there. Blog Mom says that she had a calico who was kind of slow like that. She was one of her favorite cats. Nothing bothered her, ever, her whole life. She became best friends with the Labradog they had back then.

lotsa licks, Lola

My mom used the squirt bottle on our cats, but now she uses it on me, too!!! And, personally, I think ALL our cats are sloooww!

The only cat we knew ruled the house with an Iron Paw. So we have a healthy respect for kittys of all shapes and sizes. All I can say is that you are brave to be in the same household with all those cats!

You're growing cat-puppies there? I hope you guys know what you're doing... Remember, they're sneaky by nature!

Kittens are like hyper little two year old kids with four wheel drive. Beware of wearing jeans/slacks and having them use you as a tree for climbing!

Thanks for your comment on my blog Twinkie, much appreciated. My cat Sparkles is a lot like a grown up version of Puddles, Sparkles knows she is beautiful too.

Your photos are great!
