Star, as you may know, came to us when she was two years old and had been a mommy. It was the free kitten sign that caught my attention and the tiny gray cat on the porch that caught my heart. I was sure she was a teenager-ish kitten, but when we finally got hold of the people, we found out she was one of the mommies. They had two girl kitties and a male broke through their screen and spent all day in their house. Obviously both girls being in heat drove him to it and they pretty much trashed the house in the process. That ought to teach anyone to fix their kitties, hmm?
Anyway, she was petite, but not a kitten, so no kitten pictures.
Leo was still a kitten when he was rescued by Chrystal and her family (please check out her blog Daily Dose and consider adopting a kitty, Leo's sisters are still waiting for their forever home!) He was one of the first captured, and was not very happy about it. I like to think he's very happy now, not only for being rescued in the first place, but also for coming here and becoming my heart kitty!
So I'm a day late, but I'm gonna show off a few pictures that Chrystal took when my baby was a baby!
This is Leo on the left and I believe Glitter on the right. Don't they look like scared little babies?
Go 'way big two leggy things.. no like you!
Look at those paws! And the ears are definitely talking, aren't they?
I love how adorable his shy little face is in this one..
I'm just a little wee babeh, you can't see me in here..
A little older, look at the ears. He's getting less feral!
Ok, maybe you're not so bad, but still, put me down, 'kay?
Here's the whole row of them! Only one sister missing. Leo was the only boy, he's on the right. And he's already a bigger kitty than them, isn't he? Signs he was going to be massive!
We're fine right here, thank you very much, you peoples stay right where you are.
Getting a little older! And longer!
these stretching exercises are gonna make me get real long!
On that same little shelf, his head fits where his whole body was before!
I know I sat in here before... what's the problem now..
Here he is in Chrystal's car on his way to ME! They had to pull him out of there, but then he was a happy traveler. Once I got him, he rode half the trip on my shoulder.
I wonder where we're going.. And who's that Andrea person they're talking about?
This is not long after he came to us. Around 9 months old. This is one of his best spots, hanging over my shoulder, being my Leo Scarf! My snuggly boy!
Ah, now THIS the life.. purrrrrrrrrr
