Brooke, Callie, Zach and Cody

My niece, Brooke, who has been featured several times before, has always loved coming to my house so she can hold and cuddle kittens - and see her aunt, of course.  She's longed for a kitten of her own for years, but her father has said no.  This spring a stray cat had kittens under their wood pile.  A couple weeks ago, they managed to trap all five kittens, and her father said she could keep one.  She picked out the calico and named her Callie.  They found homes for two others, and I picked up the last two for Heartland a couple weeks ago. My sister sent me these photos tonight.  The family has recently gotten back from a vacation to Gulf Shores and Brooke is catching up on her sleep.  Callie didn't go with them, but she looks pretty tired, too.  I'm so happy for Brooke that she finally has a kitten of her own to love.  The first photo may have been taken before their vacation.  Callie looks a lot bigger in the second one.  I could start a side bar page of pictures of Brooke and Callie sleeping together.

These are Callie's brothers, Zach and Cody.  My nephew wanted one named after him and picked out the lighter one.  These are feral kittens, but are warming up to me nicely.  They don't lay on me like Callie does with Brooke, but I can't spend hours every day with them, either.  They get their neuter/testing/shots package Friday and will be let out of their room if everything is okay.  They'll also go to adoptions on Saturday.  Adoptions have been very slow lately, but how can you resist these little guys?  If they come back home with me, they'll be let out into the house and can play with everyone, and Lucy can play with them.  The top two are of Zach.  The bottom two are of Cody.


  1. The photos of Brooke sleeping with her cat are darling!

  2. I'm laughing all over again about Lucy and the kits!

    Brooke and Callie snoozing together are adorable.

  3. A stray cat just had 6 kittens in our wood pile too! We can't get to them and the mom has to crawl about 6 feet straight up to get out of the spot she's in. Did you do anything to help the kittens - or did they fend for themselves and make it ok?
    My heart breaks for them...and my kids are dying to see the kittens!

  4. Now people can watch all that they want to in a number of clicks.
    It's almost always easy to make a joke about the way a cat ends up lying down or sitting. Recent research found that stressfull life can increase the speed of progression of AIDS in HIV- positive patients.
