Sleepin' on Big Bird's wing

What's more hilarious? This little kitteh falling asleep on a pillow FUZZIER than him, or the little dewds in the background layin' around? Ireegardless*, Theo, the sender-inner, says he is *not* looking forward to giving up these foster kittehs, who are ready for adoption.

Yay! The Doonses!

and it's a fuzzier than him * yellow*duckie* pillow!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:39 AM

Aww poor Theo. ; ; You guys that foster are saints. It is a wonderful, noble thing, and I couldn't do it. *Cheers all around*

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:42 AM

hi Doonces! I guess they are ready to fly the [duck] nest.
!yay! for them. hope they all find loving homes. and hugs to the foster 'rents who I know will miss them terribly.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:42 AM

My little Maria is Gray and silky like this little guy. It makes me want to curl up next to them and find out why big bird is so comfy!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:43 AM

Take comfort, Theo, now that you're an official fosterer, there will be more wonderful kittens to follow. And you will have the satisfaction of having put these guys on a good, socialized path.

Is he even real?

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:49 AM

Theo: I totally admire those who can foster-parent for-adoption orphlings...I know I'd grow too attached & wouldn't give them up...quickly becoming one of those crazies growing old with furry critters draped everywhere.

P.S. Lorna's wee cookies are completely snarfable.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 08:58 AM

now that's cute.

Ah yes. I remember this shot. Wonderful close-up of April the floor-ducky's yellow floof. And a Doone...

Teho, your sadness is warranted. I'm afraid I couldn't be a foster kitty mama. If I were anywhere near you and in a position to adopt a cat, I'd consider one of the Doonses...

Dig the static fur fuzz! That cushion must be made from some wickedly synthetic fluff!

Theo, your kids (well, Lorna's) are adorable. I hope they all find wonderful, loving, homes. Is there a chance you've decided to keep one?

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:06 AM

Whoa, dood, there's a big pile o'prosh on your carpet.

OMG! As a child, my bedroom carpet was that same yellow/fuzzy! (it was the 1970s)
Those babies are precious!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:09 AM

The only thing that could make this photo better, would be if Meg had spelt "Sleeping" as "Slepping" in the caption.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:09 AM

Laurie C - lol! Good thing I just finished my soup for lunch, or we'd have a sprayed keyboard...

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:20 AM

Theo....what precious, anerable little dewds!! You (and wonderful family) are the bestest for fostering these darlings. Yay Doonses!! Hopefully this will help them and many others find loving, wonderful, forever homes!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:23 AM

Heee! Silence Dogood wins comment of the day for me :D

That duck is dangerous. See how the kits in the background have been worn out by its ridiculousness? Sure, the fuzz of the kit is echoed beautifully by the duck, but keep an eye on the movements of that duck or else it'll be Doones Day for that little sleeping one.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:30 AM

Snoozy Doonce!! "Jes' lyin' here, luvvin' up the duck..."

Tony James
 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:33 AM

Can we have some final video of the Doonces before they venture off into the world? Maybe a roll-call a la Sound of Music?

I fostered kittens one summer. 18 itty bitties passed through my house as old as 2 years, and as young as 3 days. I SO appreciate the joy/sadness of sending them off to their new homes. I managed to let all of them go but one - so I have 4 permakitties in my house now. Little Sleepy above looks like one of my fosters I called "Duck" because his meow sounded like a quack. Theo sent this one in? Is it the same Theo that is a regular commenter here?

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:38 AM

OMG, Big Bird!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:42 AM

HelenWheels, yes, the same Theo. He's been providing links to foster kitten pix and video in the comments for a few weeks now. Nice to see them get an official CO post status, tho'.

Laurie C
 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:47 AM

That is just about the cutest picture I've ever seen. Maybe that's my natural bias as the owner of a cute black cat!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:48 AM

Lookit all the
sticking up off of him!!!
to your anerable little charges, Theo!!!

you guys r silly
 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:49 AM

HelenW sez,

"Theo sent this one in? Is it the same Theo that is a regular commenter here?"

'tis correct. if you have up to now, missed the proshness that is the Doonces, go to this link: http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/08/gravity_sucks.html
scroll down about a third until you see a post from Theo timestamped August 15 at 1:20pm with *a whole bunch* of google video links to the Doonces.

[gulps] hope that T. doesnt' mind my replying...

I love the way kitteh here is acting like a tiny adult cat, complete with realistic tail to tuck into elbow.
It's like having a little cat action figure.

Theo, all my sympathy on parting with kitten family.
Am I remembering correctly that you are keeping one?
(Clues as to which?)

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:54 AM

Oh! So soft and sleepy! Precious.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:54 AM


T. also likes pudding. Send him lots. He'll need lots of comfort food once the Doonces leave.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 09:57 AM

Aub sez,
"T. also likes pudding. Send him lots."

ummmh [thinks]. if there ONLY was a way to speedily deliver pudding. I wonder...

For Doonces Denial, T. will need help ESAP (Everyone Send A Pudding). Send via:
UPS (United Pudding Service)
DHL (Desserts Hefty & Light)

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:11 AM

Or just use the Post Office for a Priority Pudding rate -- all you can fit into one of those boxes.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:23 AM

oh theo, how do you get anything done around home? i would just sit and watch the kitties and then play with them and then watch them some more!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:23 AM

oh Aub, you sure think fast on your feets... I was thinking about delivery-by-catapult-or-trebuchet
but am delighted to see that commercial companies have jumped in.

Hate to burst your bubble but your favorite word (Iregardless) is not a word. Its just Regardless.

Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

Cute kittens though.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:44 AM

Theo - I feel your pain. I currently have my second foster litter of the summer & will probably only have them 2, 3 at the most weeks. I'm already getting weepy just thinkin about lettin them go. Every day I go back and forth...give them all up...keep one...etc.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:47 AM

That was "ireegardless" anyway

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:54 AM

Oh my god mariser! LOVED those videos. Especially the one with the big kitten wrastle pile.

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:55 AM

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:57 AM

Congrats Theo! And I totally understand how you feel. I've fostered a total of. . .5 or six kitties, and ended up keeping one.

Granted, she wouldn't have it any other way, a three year old abused for so long, finally realizes life is fine. Everytime she had a 'sleepover' with an adopter she freaked out and kept coming back and would bitch me out for getting rid of her, before getting back to her important work in my, er, HER house.

Very cute, and very wonderful The-o!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 10:58 AM

Mariser - I think Arbed might have a Puddinkwerfer that she could let you borrow...

Good grief and holy crap! I *just* noticed this post!!

[scrolls up to catch up on the comments...]

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 11:12 AM

TJ sez,

"...the Doonces before they venture off into the world? Maybe a roll-call a la Sound of Music?"

is the roll-call that scene where the kids are on the staircase saying goodnight "Good Night, Bon Soir, Aufwiedersen* "?
'cos if it is, I tewtally want to see the Doonces version.

* I think is spelled this way. apologies if not.

"So long, farewell, auf weidersehn, au revoir"...

Theo, I thought you were keeping this prosh sleepy one? Or is that just we peeps here trying to talk you into it?

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 11:23 AM

It's a bird! It's a ...

(Actually - it *is* a bird.)

Well, its TEH DOONEZ!

Merci Beaucoup To Ze Doonez's Pere ... Monsieur Theo!

 |  Aug 23, 2006 at 11:28 AM

whoa Teughcats,

I had it wronger than I thought! thanks for stepping in!
confession time: I *hated* the movie; this song was the only bearable part of it.

Mariser - the very same. I anticipate the Doonces stepping forwards and curtseying/bowing and doing their piece under the watchful eye of Lorna playing the role of Liesl von Trapp.
