New Additions

Last week - one week old. First photo. Julia is in love. Eyes shut and we're just trying to stay away and let them grow. They were born in Julia's sweater closet. The momma, Lilly Pons, pushed the sweaters away and delivered four healthy babies.


Yesterday - busy momma with four little babies. Two orange striped, one black and white, and one black.


Tonight - their first official photo with their eyes open.

How long does it take for kittens to open their eyes? I've forgotten. The kittens are so cute.

I thought you raised sheep and chickens? You seem to be doing well as a cat rancher! ; )

Wow- my heart melts. My daughter would be in love, too. Good thing you are too far away from me for an adoption.

TOO cute! I haven't seen kittens in ages! The little guy with the white blaze looks just like my Mojo, who turned 17 this week.

So precious! What little cuties.

After all the tragedy and sorrow that's been occuring in other nations and ours, it's wonderful to see a picture of kittens! It makes the heart lighter and gives some hope. How do babies do that, anyway?
Well, they all look like keepers to me. Thanks for your posts and pictures.

Can't. Take. The. Cuteness. Must. Look. Away!
They are too sweet. But I must say Achoo! Just looking at those furballs makes me sneeze. Alas, no kitties for us.

AAAWWWWWWW!!!! They are adorable, and look healthy and wonderful. Julia must be so proud to have "hosted" them during their birth!

OMG! Thanks for sharing the photos of the kittens! They are so lovely.

The B/W one looks a little like Fred, when he was a kitten. I've shown the picture around, and we like this one the best at our house. Swear the black one has another father -- like that big, enormous, black cat that you own, and never, never, ever write about... (even though I paid to have him fixed! -- already this kitten is the biggest one!

I adore the little kits! I wish I could get one, but we are afraid how the bunnies would react.

It doesn't get any sweeter than baby kittens! Look at those little toes. It'll be hard to part with them if you have to!

Lorie said...

The cutest, and picked sweaters as a bed! Smart kitties. Kristin, your blog and art are an inspiration! cheers!

I just came over here following Lena's link....omgoodness, amazing. How did I not know about you? Then I went to your site/shop....the most beautiful work! So glad I came by. The kittens are too-cute, hoping your farm will be home for the whole little family.
