Hoppy Friday! A Cuddle Puddle Update

Well, the Cuddle Puddle is growing up fast. I can't believe they will be six weeks old this Sunday.


They run around like crazy little maniacs and make me laugh so hard when they attack their Mama. Sabrina joins in the fun all the time. There is a party in my bathroom every day! hee,hee,hee.



This is Zeva. She will be going to live with good friends of mine in Virginia Beach.


Zeva was the first to do everything, including eat cat food.

She is so adventurous and such a sweet girl. They are all still nursing, but they have started to eat the hard food. They didn't like the wet kitten food and they will only eat Sabrina's dry food, not theirs. The vet told me it was fine, so I'm just going with it.

Here is D.K. (David's Kitty) He is still available for adoption. He is a super sweet boy and likes to be held.


He loves to hang out with Sabrina and play with her tail. He also loves toys.


Here is Shamus de Barrington.


Shamus is a love bug.


He is the biggest of the four and loves to stretch out on the floor and in their bed. His markings are just gorgeous. Yes, he has crossed eyes. Everyone agrees it makes his personality. It doesn't stop him from running and playing. The best thing is that my friend Gerri, Shamus' new mom, loves him just the way he is. That makes my heart so happy.


Here he and Zeva play on the climbing thing I got them. I think this was the best $17 I have ever spent. They all love this thing.


This is his favorite place to take a nap.


And, here is Miss Tiggy Wiggins.


She is forever trying to get my towel. 


She melts my heart. She has been adopted by a friend of mine in Northern VA. It kills me...really, really kills me to let her go. I'm so attached to her and Sabrina.

They are all litter box trained. It took one day, but I did have to get a special litter because they kept trying to eat it! This kind is made with wheat, can be flushed down the toilet, is good for the garden and won't hurt them if they nibble it. Miss Tiggy Wiggins decided to climb into Sabrina's potty bucket today.


Not because she had to go potty, but because it made an excellent place to hide so she could jump out and swat her brothers on their heads! hee,hee,hee.

Sabrina is just the best Mama. She is doing really well.


She is happy here and feels safe with me. The vet verified that she is completely blind in her right eye. Every time I think about all she has been through, I could cry.

 I'm truly grateful she is here with me. She is very special.


Yes, they are growing up fast, but they still love to cuddle together and take a nap.


It can be in the middle of the floor, or


sometimes they take one giant cat nap with Sabrina.


Wishing you a sweet and peaceful weekend.

Michelle and the fuzzy crew.

Dear Shell:
I do believe that these kitties have the most serene, beautiful faces I've ever seen! I've loved D.K. from the beginning with his tan markings, but Handsome just isn't a cat person. Otherwise, I'd be coming to get him in a heartbeat!

I think you've managed to capture the essence of every single one of your wee charges, and I can only imagine how difficult it will be for you to let them go. It would be the same for me!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.
Sending hugs to you and all your furry friends from Tag-wart and me!

Awwww......they are all just so cute! I wish you were closer and I'd adopt DK :) I have 3 kitties but I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't mind having another playmate! The names suit each one's personality perfectly! Havea lovely weekend with your cuddle puddle :)

teehee....Sabrina really looks so content. She is a good mummy, and you can tell on her face that she is relaxed, happy and so grateful that someone loves her: YOU.

HOPPY FRIDAY!

It is wonderful to see such a happy, contented and playful family, just as they should be. You've done a brilliant job. Sabrina is such a beautiful girl and I know what a difference all the love, care - and stability, have made to her, after her unhappy former life. Well done my friend.x

Tammy said...

Your cats are absolutely gorgeous. So healthy and happy looking. Their markings are absolutely beautiful....Wish I was closer I would have been happy to give one or 2 a great new home As my tiger striped orange twin boys were stolen last fall.

Getting to look more and more like a cuddle lake!

Tina said...

These are just the most wonderful, perfect pictures! I had to look at them over and over - what absolute cuties!!! I absolutely LOVE cats and I'm sure I would spend all of my waking hours in your bathroom with these angels. Sabrina really had some pretty kittens and I can't believe how wonderful she is looking - you've truly worked a miracle for her and her babies. I showed my husband a picture of D.K. and he fell in love with him too. I sure wish I didn't live in Nevada: I'd take him in a minute!!

KMSC said...

What a wonderful post! I love kitties and your photos were so sweet and endearing. Thank you for caring for Sabrina; she looks content and healthy.

Jo in TAS said...

What a sad day it will be when they're there no more, i'm going to miss the updates. Give Sabrina a big cuddle from me, she is a good mum x

Kathryn Oppelt said...

Oh Michelle, they are all so very cute, and I can't even have cats! (allergies) So glad that you have found them such wonderful homes, and that in the meantime, you and Sabrina take such good care of them!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Oh my gosh, I've tears in my eyes reading this Shell, you are such a very special person and my heart is so full of love for you and what you have done for Sabrina and her babies. Wish I lived closer because D.K. would have a home in a heart beat but I know that someone will soon love and care for him just as you are. Thank you for being YOU. {hugs}, Deb
