OMG!!!!   A LONG overdue Ripley fix!!!   :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow: :Luv2: :Luv2:

Think Teresa is never far from our thoughts on any day of the week.  I often find myself composing a quick email to her on my way to work (which is when I used to do it in reality).

Tiggy is actually turning out to be a very good, if unconventional, mum.  ;D  She’s protective without being possessive which will make the task socialising easier.  Yes I know, its going to be hell but somebody has to do it.  ;) :evillaugh:

 
The kittens will be four weeks old on Wednesday so I think its time for formal introductions.  We really should have used different coloured bedding because they don’t show up well against the grey but here goes.

First off we have Topsy, the only girl.  We thought she was a tortie at birth but I think she’s a torbie with a bit a white on her face for good measure.  :Luv2:



Next we have Todd who already knows he’s a heart-throb.  He has the most amazing pair of lungs and isn’t afraid to use them - often.  :evillaugh:





Next comes Tyson, so called because he’s the biggest and a bit of a thug.  :rofl:



Finally we have the other black boy who was Toby until the arrival at the Inn of Marmite and Toby who have had their names all their lives.  We’ve not actually agreed on his new name but I call him Troy, I think Debbie calls him Theo, and Rob, who can never remember kittens names anyway, says he’s only 6 inches long so why does he need a name yet.  :rofl:  I have a sneaking feeling he might turn out to be my favourite, he already has a cheeky look in his eyes.



Both the black boys have stripes in their fur which is not uncommon and they usually fade, but in Tyson’s case they’re very noticeable and I wouldn’t be surprised if they became more rather than less prominent with time.



Gotta go now but more pics later (probably much later), including another 2 newbies.  Yes folks, the collapsible pens are being pressed into use once again.

She's a gorgeous girl - hardly surprising she wants affection when as you say she's little more than a baby herself, bless her paws!    :(

Nobody at the Inn has a home lined up Rosella, the enquiries have totally dried up. :(

Tiggy is rather special isn't she and she's just a baby herself, bless her.  You have no idea how difficult it was to get that picture because if you go anywhere near her she just comes for fuss and affection and leaves the babies to their own devices.  :shocked:
 
She worried us to death when she first gave birth because we never saw her feed them.  :scared: We had to keep making sure that their tummies were full and she happily let us handle them and didn't even try to lick them clean afterwards which worried us even more. Rob was getting up through the night to check on them and when I was there I took to crawling on my hands and knees along the outside of the pen block then popping up when I got under the window in the hope of taking her by surprise :rofl: but she was always on the scratch post. 

She lets Rob and Debbie see her looking after them now and she's more protective than she was but if I approach the pen she still thinks I've come to play.  :Luv2:  On my last visit she jumped out of the pen as soon as I opened the door and found herself a toy.

Nobody prepared to hazard a guess?    What about you Sue?   Here's another pic to help you decide.

I'm not allowed to play cos that would be cheating  :naughty: Can't believe how big they're getting so quickly!  :Luv2:

More newbies at the Inn, 2 year old brothers Marmite and Toby.  Poor Rosalind has been evicted from her penthouse apartment to accommodate them and she is not happy.  :shify:

Scamp was the little one that was pretty poorly when T took her on with her Mum, wasn't she? And we'd been told she was a he, if I remember correctly....T learned about Scamp and her Mum because I posted after being concerned; they were being given away on the local Freecycle. The person that had them decided to "just keep the kitten because it was a bit poorly to see if they got better" but I convinced them to let both go. Seems T taking her on saved her life from what I remember because untreated it was a pretty severe infection. Course, saving lives was what she was good at.

Awesome photo of a bevvy of beautiful black cats, and wonderful Paws Inn update. :)

Fabulous pic Sarah, and great to see how well Busta has integrated with your others - or is that just the steak?  :evillaugh:


Sorry for the absence of posts recently folks, I’ve been busy with stuff at home.  :-[  In truth not a lot has changed at the Inn.  All residents are well but rehoming is at a virtual standstill.  The single enquiry we’ve had since I last posted resulted in Sparkle finding her forever home, and she was instantly replaced by Perky, who could be her twin both in looks and personality as you will see from the pic.  :Luv2:





Silly me, I almost forgot.  :innocent: There was a bit of excitement a couple of weeks ago.  ;)  This was Day One...
 


….. and Day3



..and finally today, Day 15.  I know you can’t tell from the pic but their eyes are open now. 



Can you guess who mum is?  You’ve been introduced.  :evillaugh:

Hi all,

I haven't been on for a while but thought I'd pop by and say hi :) also thought I'd share a pic which I've already put on the Paws Facebook site of my brood which includes 4 Paws Inn babies :)

From top (the little one looking at the camera) going clockwise, we have Scrumpberry (was Blackberry at PI); Bear (Bumpty); Scamp (Chico, sister of Scrumpberry from another litter and rescued by T and Rob from Chesterfield!); Scratchy (non Paws baby); and lastly is Busta (was Pimlico who was one of T's last rescues). If anyone's wondering they're enjoying some leftover steak, they don't share a plate everynight

As you can see they're a happy bunch who are very much loved and who I'm extremely thankful to Paws Inn for :)

Hope everyone on here is well,

Sarah

Tiggy is not your ordinary ginger cat,  :Nooooo: not that you ginger fans would ever use the term ordinary anyway.  :)  I’ve been searching the net to try to find images anything like her and have failed miserably, although a rather complicated article I saw led me to believe she might be a reverse torbie.  :Crazy:


When we collected her we thought she had perhaps been under a car with an oil leak and we intended cleaning her up when she had settled.  Closer inspection revealed that the ‘dirt’ was in fact black, or more likely dark tortie stripes in the fur on her back, face, edge of one ear and legs/feet.  I hope you can see them on the pics.  And she isn’t ginger – she’s the richest red I've ever seen.   :wow:

Dainty might have started the Spring madness but everybody joined in, and they didn’t even have Tan’s herbal sweeties to excuse their behaviour.  :rofl:  We had Bee doing the hokey-kokey….


….Bayleaf doing his dancing bear act


…. Tiggy dancing on the table……


….. and Sparkle doing mmmmmmmmmmmmm not sure what, but it was very undignified for a lady  :evillaugh:


Molly was obviously impressed though because she tried to copy it…


…as did Tiggy
