Nuzzling into Joey's black fur. There has been mixed reaction in my family to me naming her Potato. So, I was thinking of Penelope, after the lead singer of the great American punk rock band, the Avengers. But then, I was cooking some potatoes and she went NUTS for them - - she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES potatoes. So maybe it's her second name, i.e. Penelope Potato.

This is when I first met Potato (tentative name) yesterday. She's Joey Puppycat Ramone's new adopted sister. He is 3 times bigger than her but she must have learned some survival techniques because she gulps down all the food in her bowl and then muscles into his and eats all his food. She also puts him at ease with constant loud purring.
Still at $100/$450. Paid my rent and pet deposits but I still need at least $200 more before Nov 10th for the kittens vet bill. Anything helps. @mutualaid #mutualaid #crowdfunding #transcrowdfund #KittensOfMastodon #DogsOfMastodon
Something the babies do not realize: they are almost full-grown. They can jump up on things. They don’t have to scramble up with their claws onto things anymore. Save me furniture, y’all! #KittensOfMastodon
Our latest foster kittens - the Spicy Kittens - Ursula, Yoda, and Lil' Bob. They were quite feral when we got them early last week. But the gloves are off now, literally. They may hiss and occasionally spit but will let us pick them up, sometimes with a little chase but no blood lost. And they will calmly sit and be petted - no purring yet but we're getting there. And they even meet our big cats with no drama.
Morning #CupOfTeaSocial! I overslept by 90 minutes today. I either forgot to set my alarm or slept through it. Either way, I apparently needed almost 10 hours of sleep.
I woke up at 7.40am - I was supposed to leave at 7.30am to get the kittens to the vet. I got them there at 8.05am but luckily everyone else was running late too due to traffic.
Kittens are all good. They are booked in for early sterilisation as we have one boy and one girl and need them not to reproduce!!!
Note to self: next time you trap a couple of pregnant stray cats, try to get some in different colors. Voids are lovely but hard to photograph. Also - be meaner to them so they'll actually want to leave after you've given them eight to ten weeks of indoor maternity care, and gotten them spayed. #CatsOfMastodon #kittensofmastodon
🥳 My kittens are three weeks old today! They’re starting to wrestle and play, so look forward to more exciting kittenish content in the near future.
Mama Jezebel (Belly) has adapted to her duties admirably. It’s so neat to watch instinct direct her actions. The babies have finally been named:
The spicy tabby: Ivan the Terrible
The dark tabby: Arfurr Conan Spoiled
The calico one: Cleocatra
The black one: Edgrrr Allan Purr
