Carmine in the sun
Originally uploaded by jennconspiracy
In sunny weather, he soaks it up and his fur goes from being mostly black to unquestionably sable - a deep dark chocolate color that looks red in the sun.

Tough Guy

George now has a nice little nick in his left ear from fighting with neighbor Jack (also a black cat but with longer fur).

A very rewarding visit to the baby kittems - we managed to get them to line up for a family portrait!
Dobson decided that he wanted to make sure the mouse-pad didn't go anywhere, so parked his furry bottom right on it!

The kittens went off to their next foster home before I left on my spring vacation - after I returned, Dobson was playing all sorts of tricks to get my attention. He wanted attention but didn't want me to hold him. Here, he jumped up to the top of the door from the folded massage table - a pretty good leap - and then, of course, he had no idea what he wanted to do up there!

He was the second born - and the biggest & fluffiest of all. He's a very aggressive crawler in the next but not so tough on a smooth surface - he turns to a little grey puddle!

He's looking just like mom - but with a black nose instead of crimson!

Six Days Old!

Kittens are fussing and playing, rolling around on each other, competing for food - and mom is getting tired of being in the bathroom.

Tortuga and her babies - everyone is healthy and doing well!

At less than one day old - the kittens are all dry & well fed, mom is resting.

First kitten is very dark in color - but later proves to be stripey, like mom...

She is less than a year old - and was just a little kitty hanging out in my friend's backyard last summer. They travel a lot but manage to feed the kitties - but by the time they got her to the vet, it was too late! She was about to be a mom!

"What do I do with a pregnant cat?" my friend wrote - so, of course, I volunteered to take her in!

The Boys at the Window

Who knows what they are thinking, right? Actually - I could tell you - they are banding together in this displeasure at hosting Miss Princess Tortuga. Who is this stranger who took over the bathroom?

The boys love to snuggle - on top of the heating pad & fuzzy blanket - when it is chilly.

The Spice Must Flow!!

Not only did George climb into my robe while I was sitting at the computer, but then down into my sleeve - so I let him stay enwrapped in the sleeve and shrugged off the robe while I reached for the camera. He stayed there for about 30 minutes, all warm and snuggly. Somehow, though, he reminds me of "Dune."
