Camp Wannabeakitty!

Convenient AND space efficient. Good idea--although my full-grown kitties wouldn't fit or would break the glass.

I wish I had gone to Camp Kittdelton. At my sucky camp we had to cook hamburgers with peanut butter in tinfoil over a campfire.

Watch out for the midnight roll call (AKA midnight crazies). You get that many marmies ripping through the house on red alert and someone's going to get hurt.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:00 AM

How many kitties are there in that first picture? I can't even tell....

Does this entry count in the Cats -n- Racks category? Because, uh, technically...

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:01 AM

I swear, kitters are so funny. They look like troubles, don't they?

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:01 AM

My marmalade kittehs do that too, rip through the house doing the midnight craziness, but mine do it at 5am regularly... thump thump thump thump, rowwwr, boom, thump.. clickety clickety (claws on tile floor as one loses traction).. .my downstairs neighbor LOVES me!!! I would lurve to hold all three of these marmie bebehs and gather muchas smoochas!!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:08 AM

Good lord, it's the story of my life.

(LOL, Katy. Beaut.)

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:09 AM

Okay, that borders on TOO cute. I looooooooooooorve dis one, I does!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:10 AM

Some (hopefully) exciting news for me! http://flickr.com/photos/97801341@N00/243996027/
Any advice on introducing a new kitten to a 6-year-old cat would be welcome.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:14 AM

That is the FUNNIEST thing I've seen in awhile. Just...too adorable! The way not one, but *all* of them squeezed into those little shelves, and then their legs are just hanging down all over the place...bwahahah!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:16 AM

Oh, and shanchan - that little white kitten is adorable!

I'm so jealous :)

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:18 AM

I will admit that the first thing I thought of when I saw this pic, was oooo a kitteh vending machine. There'd be a little lever to the side, you'd pull it and a kitteh would slide out. It's the next step in the development of the portasnorg.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:18 AM


My adult female cats accept male kittens better than they do each other. I think they look upon the males as not being quite of the same race or something.

I'd take the marmie kitten over the white one though...

OMG, those pics are so funny! Kitties are the funniest sleepers.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:27 AM

I tawt I taw a bwoo thofa!

I did! I did taw a bwoo thofa!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:28 AM

omg, I made a strangled aaaaallllgh sound when I got a load of front kitteh's face & little snoochy in the back!!!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:31 AM

What a window of paw-portunity!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:32 AM

I just love the sideways head in the top photo.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:32 AM

i bet the glass is nice and warm for those "heat-seeking" kitties!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:38 AM

Sooo cute! But couldn't they find a less comfy place to sleep? How about under the kit-chen sink whilst the food disposal is running?

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:41 AM

There is nothing funnier than a cat with the "rips" four-wheeling from carpet to tile... my maine coon used to spin out on purpose and could to a 180 or a 360 at will.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:43 AM

Shanchan -

As a rule, which of course is meant to be broken by somebody somewhere, neutered males are by far the easiest to introduce into a household of adult cats. They are very affectionate and not very territorial most of the time. Introducing two females can be a little tougher.

Lurkertype has been introducing a male kit to her older female tortie, and I'm about to do the same with my 15 year old girl tortie too.

From past experience, the three things I would tell you are:

- Don't worry. They will adjust. Sometimes it takes an hour and sometimes it takes months.

- Let them scrap it out. It is highly unlikely your cat will really hurt the kitten, and just as unlikely the kitten will really hurt your cat, and if you interfere when they are scrapping, you are likely to make one or the other of them feel disfavored by the Big Cat Who Brings Food, which just delays them coping with each other.

- Give your current kitty lots of love and extra treats when you two are alone.

I've had good luck with the bathroom method... keep new kitty in a bathroom for a day or two where the two can meet, sniff and paw at each other under the door... then let established kitty explore the bathroom with new kitty somewhere else... this helps them get used to the other's scent. Then, Saska's right, they'll just have to scrap it out with a little human supervision.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:52 AM

Aubrey, I can't believe you went there..That was great!!!!!

And I agree, I'd take the Marmalade over the white Kitten, although ANY kitten is worth taking home!!!!

Can you imagine of those kitties in the window when a bird or squirrel stops by????

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 11:55 AM

Someone else already had dibs on the marmie, but I was only sad until I met the white one, who came right up to me to say "HI!!", which I'm probably going to call Beamer because it fits his personality (not the car- my thought process was, he's creamy looking, creamer, beamy, beamer, ooh, Beamer!)

Thanks for all the advice guys! The bathroom trick sounds good- I've heard of that one before.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:00 PM

(Plus I'll give Miki's claws a clipping before they start waling on each other.)

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:01 PM

Sanchan, to add to the comments above, besides doing the bathroom-sniff-under-the-door thing with the new and old kitty, try also feeding them on their respective sides of the same door. Then older kitty associates the scent of newer kitty with a good thing like food.

Kittehs have a way of extracting the comfy from whatever surface they adhere to. It's a gift.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:07 PM

Cats are too wierd. I just don't get them, this is redonkulous. :-)

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:08 PM

Shanchan - I think the kitten looks like a creamsicle. I think that would be a cute name

Just realised that those glass "shelves" are probably jalousie panes -- perfect for half-cats, but tight squeeeeeeee--ze for full cats.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:16 PM

Shanchan..I love all the kittens, but the little white one is very precious. It is funny, my kids and I decided if we ever get a white kitten, we would name it "Spooma". We got that from my late father who was from Peru, who called the foam on top of his beer, spooma! It would also be a tribute to my Dad who passes away in Dec. whom we miss more than words can say. Good luck with your kitten!!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:43 PM

Oh Shanchan, that white kitten is just the best. I love the name you picked out! Very unique!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:55 PM

All those dangling paws! Too much adorableness - my brain's gonna explode!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 01:00 PM

Holy dangling limbs Batman!!
little swinging paws are so cute

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 01:00 PM

So cute! awww =D

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 01:21 PM

Shanchan.. another thing I"ve done is, after the bathroom intros and other tricks already mentioned, find ways to trick them into playing "together".. for example throw a toy tied to string PAST where they're both sitting, pull it toward you.. before they know it they're chasing it together, eventually they'll kind of "oh yeah, I forgot, you're a stranger, er, um .. hsss" and then you do it again or something of a similar nature. Don't use older kitty's fav toy for this of course... something new they have to share. Don't force them to interact, just provide good chances for them to play "together".
My older cat "hated" his new baby sister on day one. By day 3 they were sleeping together. Of course, she did help by completely ignoring any hissing he did and snuggling up to him when he was already asleep. He'd wake up and find her cuddled by his side (she probably figured he was better than no mom at all.) A perfunctory hiss or two (which she ignored) and he'd give up and go back to sleep. It didn't take long.

and I forgot to say, these kittens made me LOL! cuties!!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 01:25 PM

Stackage of marmaladeness!

This is the new model of improved-efficiency solar-powered cat. The clear shelves enable them to absorb just that much more UV rays, giving them twice the amount of energy from the same length of window naptime.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 01:42 PM

Funny, thinker, I always thought sun robbed cats of their energy. At least it looks that way with mine.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 02:09 PM

Laurie C -- nah, that's just the charging cycle.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 02:12 PM

Now why didn't any of my kitties think to make good use of the old glass windows like that? Maybe then I wouldn't resent cleaning those 16 glass panes so much!!

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 02:13 PM

It's true, LC - all cat-teries need to be recharged, once in a while.

 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 02:16 PM

Mary, that's so cute!
