Miss Swan's Kittens!

Went to visit the in-laws. Miss Swan (the foster kitty) had her babies last Friday and I've been waiting as patiently as possible to get to see them. 

Miss Swan had 5 healthy kittens: 4 grey & white, 1 black & white. 

This little sweetheart wanted to be on top of things. Whether it was the side of the bed...

...or mommy's head.

Mommy seems completely content. She's doing a great job.

 Like always, my puppy-in-law Boo was around...

...but I also got to see my kitty-in-law! Last time he was hiding in the basement. This is Captain Jack.

What was that?

Something made a sound. Pickle is such a fraidy-cat.

Router Cat heard it too but seems unphased.

Router Cat Cutie

Router Cat was being amazingly cute today. So cute that I figured this picture deserved a post all to itself.

Can't... Get... Comfortable!

It seems like every time I turn around, today, Router Cat has gone and taken a new position on the router.

Router Cat is On Duty

Went to a friend's place to say Happy Birthday and was delighted to get a chance to photograph one of her kitties.

This is Sookie. She's just a little kitty and very shy. She left moments after I shot this photo.

When I came home I found Router Cat in her spot atop the router.

Silly girl fell asleep on the job!

Silly Dragonfly

Based on the title, I'm guessing you were expecting some dragonfly photos... nope! Have a cat instead!

This is my friend's cat, Silly.  From this angle she looks a lot like our very own Router Cat!

When you see her face though, she's not so easily mistaken.

Still bummed about the dragonfly photos? Here, have one anyways! This silly little guy was dancing around my feet as I walked down the road and only stopped when I finally did. He posed for me and everything!

Good Morning World!

We had a nice cool morning today, so the kitties got to enjoy some time on the balcony.  Seems like everyone is still waking up!

Anastasia gives us a great big yawn.

Followed by a great big stretch. (Floofy Bum!)

Pickle has caught the yawn bug too... Seems it's contagious even in other species!

Router Cat has decided she's not ready to wake up yet.

Purr-fect Pet at the SPCA

Went to the SPCA today to see the animals and was happy to see all the activity surrounding the 'Find your perfect feline friend' campaign. As a way to do my part, I'm going to highlight one of the kitties at the shelter, here in Penticton, in today's post.

Meet Scrappy:

- The Following is a copy of her profile at the SPCA -

Poor Scrappy was left at the shelter door in a box with a note that read:
"My name is Scrappy. I am a fixed female tortoiseshell cat. I'm almost 6 years old. I would love to go to a home where there are no other cats or dogs and where I can get the one-on-one attention I deserve. I get freaked out when I'm with young kids. I'm a very talkative cat. I have never been outside before. My owner doesn't have time for me and I deserve better!"
Scrappy is a character and a half! She spends her mornings out of the kennel greeting staff, volunteers, and summer campers. She bounces happily around the lobby amusing us with her outgoing personality, jovial swagger, and dainty meows.
She tolerates the dogs and bunnies she meets on her morning outing. Without a doubt, a shelter favorite, we know Scrappy will make a wonderful addition to a home where people appreciate her unique charm.

Scrappy got to have some roaming time while I was there. She was really happy to be out of her cage.

Also got a chance to snuggle one of the many kittens! This beautiful bow looks just like his mommy Lexi, who is also at the shelter.

*Both cats shown are currently available for adoption at the Penticton, BC shelter.*
*Please contact the SPCA if you're interested in adopting!*

On a final note...

Close To Distraction...

Decided to try close-ups of the girls today.

Anastasia cooperated but seemed less than impressed.

It was easy, as per usual, to get some good closeups of Router Cat.

Silly Pickle. She just couldn't help but get distracted!

Enjoying The Fresh Air

Opened up the door for the kitties to enjoy the evening sun.

Pickle loves rolling around on the balcony.

Anastasia is enjoying her time outside so much she smiles for the camera.

Even Router Cat went out for some fresh air!

Peaceful Princess

Anastasia  is having a lazy morning!

(Pickle, on the other hand, seems bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!)

Router Cat is, as one would expect, on the router again...

Visited my puppy-in-law yesterday. Boo is a German Shepherd cross.

Also got to see my in-laws' new foster kitty, Miss Swan. Can't wait for her to have her kittens!

Oh, and I saw a little red dragonfly too!

After my visit, I came home to my sleeping kitties...



...and Router Cat!

Sunset Pickle

Now that the sun is setting and the temperature has gone down enough to open the balcony door, Pickle has gone outside to enjoy the fresh air.
