Go ahead and squee, I won't tell anyone..


"A kitten is the rosebud in the garden of the animal kingdom."-- Robert Southey
"If only cats grew into kittens."-- R. D. Stern
"A meow massages the heart."-- Stuart McMillan
"Cats know how to obtain food without labor, shelter without confinement,
and love without penalties."-- W.L George
"Happy is the home with at least one cat."-- Italian Proverb
Do you need a breather from all this squee?  Here, inhale deeply from the neck..
It's called kitten huffing, and it is not in the least bit addicting ;)
"Meow is like aloha - it can mean anything."-- Hank Ketchum
"They say the test of literary power is whether a man can write an inscription.
I say: Can he name a kitten?"-- Samuel Butler
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want."-- Joseph Krutch
"Purring would seem to be, in her case, an automatic safety valve device for dealing with happiness overflow."-- Monica Edwards
"Those who will play with cats must expect to be scratched."-- Cervantes
"Perhaps it is because cats do not live by human patterns, do not fit themselves into prescribed behavior, that they are so united to creative people."-- Andre Norton
"A cat can purr its way out of anything."-- Donna McCrohan
The Kraken is totally not judging you, not in the least.. 
The Teddy Paw.
What was once seen, can not be unseen
"To gain the friendship of a cat is a difficult thing. The cat is philosophical, metholodical, quiet animal, tenacious of it's own habits, fond of order and cleanliness, and it does not lightly confer its friendship. If you are worthy of its affection, a cat will be your friend, but never your slave. He keeps his free will, though he loves, and he will not do for you what he thinks is unreasonable. But if he once gives himself to you it is with absolute confidence and affection"-- Theophile Gautier, 1850

As an aside, kittens are not born with the ability to retract their claws.  That skill comes at around a month of age, so in a couple of weeks they will start being able to pull those little things in. Until then I will just make sure I don't put them on my bare skin.

  12. I honestly think I'd do anything to have polydactyl tabbies in our home! If they just showed up on the doorstep, the hubby would whisk them inside and voila! But if I bring up the notion of adding more cats to the house, it's a flat NO! Great quotes, and great photos!
