Those are very cute kitties and momma cat. I hope the momma cat does not have a very serious heart condition.

AAAIIIEE! Too cute! Must look away! Momma is beautiful! I hope she will be OK with her heart!

They are all so adorable! My mommy was embarrassing. She kept saying "awwwwwwwww!"

Mommy says she used to have a Tortie with a heart murmur, but she lived A LONG time and was very healthy otherwise. Her Tortie came pregnant with kittens, too! Is it a Tortie thing? I'll have to keep an eye on my sisters . . .

I had to laugh at the Momma Tortie hiding in the drawer. I've watched mine open a drawer and climb in, but they never got the closing it down, thankfully!

I am in love with Baby Socks, what a sad little chops he has. Actually I'm in love with all of them, including brave Mummy puss.

Mr. Hendrix said...

oh my goodness. are they staying with you too or at the neighbors? i'm trying to find homes for Dinah and the Mites here in Ohio, but everyone we are friends with already foster or have multiple pet houses. I wish we could take one but I'd be so afraid they'd get FIV from Hendrix and he just is not friendly with other cats.

Our friends are keeping their ears open too for anyone who can help. What can we do??? Do you need some green papers to help?

Maybe you could purr nice to your Momma and she would let you keep one or two....our Momma says she loves Momma tortie, but has 4 cats and DAD says that is enuf. He says if he didn't stop her she would start hoarding, she says no, she just luvs kitties.
