Meet the Kittens 2: The Cutening

Perched on a favorite pillow.
Prof. Murder aka Pantz’ favorite toy.

 

Which has also become Sweetie Pie Jonus’ favorite toy.
Enjoying the view.
… and Sweetie Pie notices a bug.
They are ridiculous!

 

They remain adorable and tiring, though they’ve calmed down a little from the first few days. I think coming from a cage (filled with other kittens) to a big apartment overstimulated them a bit and gave them a desire to run and run (and play and play, and fight and fight).

“my parents & government employees should go to jail for not finding me a girlfriend” dude

I tried going through Rooshe’s crap but my brain seized up. Would you point me towards the right thread to find this? I think I may know who that is.

Thanks.

I love how window climbing cat looks like a really determined mime, like he’s climbing air.

Of course you know what we really want is video, right?

Those pictures are all awesome. 😀 I am so impressed you caught the leaping for bugs picture!

I’m actually not a fan of the no-kill movement because I feel all it does is mean that kill shelters have to euth more to make up for the lack of turnover at the no-kill shelters; it also sets up a dichotomy where non-no-kill shelters are called “kill” shelters by default which pisses me off because the people at these shelters do as much as they can to save as many as possible but resources are finite and euthing 4 contagious kittens can be better than infecting 20, no matter how good your cleaning protocols are.

Not that no-kill shelters are *bad*, I just think the “all shelters should be no-kill!” is unrealistic and demonises caring people who already do a hard job. /rant 😛

Aw, they’ve got a nice lounging area next to a window.

I got so used to my bf’s monsters over the last 11 days that it feels really weird now, trying to go to sleep sans kitties. Much less annoying and sneezy, but weird. 😐

@hrotvinir, I’m inclined to agree with you as far as no-kill shelters.

Pictures 2 and 3 illustrate Pratchett’s “look of mad amazement found on kittens everywhere” 🙂

Were these two already buddies at the shelter? If not they’ve bonded very well!

I always thought the “no kill” thing was just “no killing for stupid reasons”, not “no killing whatsoever!!!1111”.

I mean, the place I worked at for work experience had a “no kill” rule, but that just meant they didn’t just kill animals that couldn’t get homes. They still euthanised animals for legitimate reasons, like if they were seriously ill and/or suffering, or were dangerous to themselves or others.

I don’t know if there’s cultural differences going on here, but I feel like there’s some misrepresentation going on of what “no kill” is about.
