Our Mom is busy making toys for the shelter’s upcoming Christmas Tree auction. She keeps complaining she doesn’t have time for this. If that’s the case, these catnip mousies must be multiplying by themselves because there are at least a dozen of them stuffed in a bag waiting to be hung up. All except this one, that is. This one’s mine!*

*Mom’s note: Tessa didn’t get to keep this one but don’t worry. I’ll make a mousie just for her, later.

On the other side of the house and three hundred and twenty-two failed, blurry photos later, Illy checks out a different set of auction tree ornaments. Looking at those things now, and if we were Illy, we think we’d want to chew all those big felty eyeballs off right this very minute!

Luckily for us, one group photo turned out. It’s a pretty big photo so please click on it to enlargerate. Warning: We’re not sure what was going on with Robbie’s stare. Obviously, he was really, REALLY into watching that dangling toy to get that kind of goofy look out of him!

  1. That is a great kitten shot! I think ALL the kitties should have their own toys (that is, in addition to the ones for the shelter).

  2. Oh my word, that kitten shot is fabulous!!!

  3. WHAT A CUTE TOY AND OMCs the Niblets portrait is amazing they need to be on a kitten calendar.

  4. Wow, those are a lot of nip toys. The staring ones are pretty scary. Maybe Robbie was just trying to imitate one of those. Precious photo of all four together. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  5. What great tree ornaments for both adult cats and kittens. We just so love the picture of the four kittens actually all looking at the camera – was it luck or just good fortune?
