The Really Thorough Kitten Sitter

[Grey Cat] "You can count on me to babysit your kittens, Ma'am."


"I won't let them get away with ANYTHING. I'll make sure they eat their lunchabuhls and don't watch too much T.V."



"They won't get out of control. Heck, I'll SIT on them if need be."


Digging to China may be the only way out, Staci S.!

Mom is not gray cat, mom is dilute tortie! That's how she got the little splotches of orange on her, and how she ended up with those adorable marmie kitnz -- looks like she had a marmie and white gentleman caller.

The last one caused me to splode. The wee faces!

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 05:58 PM

This is one of the best posts in a long, long while. Hidden marmies. Honk-shu. Multiple axes of snorgling.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 06:04 PM

There were 10 in the bed and the little one said...Roll over roll over so they all rolled over and one fell out there were 9 in the bed and the little one said....

lurkertype, "looks like she had a marmie and white gentleman caller."

Water would have come out my nose had I actualy been taking a sip when I read this. Such a classy way to say mama is a slut.

That's OK, the kitty I adopted got around, too. Her litter had two marmies, then two torties, and finally two tuxedos...in birth order.

Of course I fixed her when I took her in. Now all the action she gets is when I rub her belly and scratch behind her ears.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 06:29 PM

Mommy...you're squishing me!!! ;P

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:06 PM

What a beautiful cat, I want her.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:25 PM

I can has the mommy? The baby kits are adorable and I would love each and every one because marmies are my favorites, but the mommy's eyes just touched my soul...

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:28 PM

lurkertype--Nice of you to mention the "gentleman caller" ...Sounds like
"The Glass Menagerie."

eeeeee :D

When I got my orange kitteh, well, he wasn't so little. That's really my sole regret (and probably a selfish one) about getting an adult rescue, that I never got to see what he looked like as a tiny kitty. Thankfully, seeing pictures of these babies is the next best thing.


 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:34 PM

This is what happens when cat beds meet clown cars.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:34 PM

Happy Caturday! Love those

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:42 PM

Valiant effort, Momcat! Certainly one of the cutest posts ever!!!

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 07:51 PM

Hehe, we always called the F.O.K.'s "gentleman callers," too!

She's got that eternal put-upon mama cat face down pat.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 08:05 PM

So cute! How many more are hiding in there??

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:01 PM

You've heard of mama bears and lionesses with their cubs?

I bet they don't have as daunting a glare. I pity the fool who tries to mess with her kittens.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:03 PM

Like the marmie-ear dino-fins in the first pic.

Aieee! Catzilla!

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:07 PM

love the marmie and gentleman caller wording... now we are off the bit** word and back to cute adorable adjectives or special words for a kitty that likes "cat around" really liked these pics and posts...

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:09 PM

Yeah, BerthaSchwerv, I figured your head would splode with that one. Widdle sleepy marmie heads with blue eyes peeking out from under pretty mommy kitty, yep, I can go to bed now.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:39 PM

Aw, mama cat looks like she could be one of my kitties' sister. Tortie-tabby mixes are so pretty.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 09:44 PM

I love the kittens... but mom is just exquisite - what a beautiful cat.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 10:10 PM

That looks SO comfortable.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 10:30 PM

Can you really blame her? If I had little kittehs that cute I'd be doing the same thing.

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 10:31 PM

doesn't everyone catsit like this??? ;)

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 11:03 PM



(Tiny kitten chorus:)



Beat it!

 |  Nov 15, 2008 at 11:27 PM

What a considerate Cat gradualy revvealing the Marmie kittens so the squeeing and splodes are minimizied

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 01:34 AM

The mother's eyes are quite striking. Very beautiful.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 01:43 AM

oh that is so darn cute!!
what a bunch of adorable kitties! i want to snorgle them all! ack!

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 04:53 AM

I always adore that protective mum look....

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 05:51 AM

Very cute, but please spay/neuter your pets!

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 06:12 AM

Hey guys...picture taker here =).

The babies aren't actually her's (aka Blue) lol..she just likes to pretend they are (she hasn't had a litter). She's a natural mama though, totally. I found it fascinating how determined she was to mother them.
Blue really is one of the most loving cats I've ever had..a real doll. Oh, and I promise..there are only three under there. No more babies were squished in the making of this photo =).

Awwww!!! This reminds me of one of my foster mamas I had this spring!!! She was the most beautiful tabby with calico colorings and the sweetest thing, too!!

And, I would like the little white-faced kitten ASAP, please!!!!

Gail (the first one)
 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 06:30 AM

Bebehs having bebehs, harumph harumph.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 07:05 AM

Now I am laughing OUT LOUD, Staci! Even cuter knowing those are not her babies! What a sweetheart/nutjob-LOVE her (and them!)

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 07:17 AM

Doesn't everybody have a mattress stuffed with kittens? It's way better than the sleep number bed. Good for your back AND lowers your blood pressure too!

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 07:51 AM

Speaking of clever wordings, "lunchabuhls", like "Abilify", is one of those words that I both admire and despise at the same time every time I hear it. And it always makes me wonder about the kind of creative process that gave us such words.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 08:41 AM

LOL! I feel so sorry for the kitten directly in mom's arms in the last photo. She just looks squooshed.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 09:00 AM

That IS a good mommy cat!

The kitteh's are like: "But, mom, couldn't I just go over to THAT SPOT, just for a sec??"

Mommeh cat: "Uh, no, here, let me put my arm more securely around you! Love you!"

Very cuuuute!

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 09:05 AM

the face of the kitty on the very bottom in the 3rd pic is priceless. it's little wonky eye from being smooshed...


 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 10:13 AM

So. Fracking. Cute.

My Mitts used to mother my foster babies like that. Last year she let three large white kittens (one nearly as big as her) nurse on her, despite lack of milk. After about 40 of them though I think she has grown tired of the mothering and would rather just chase them around.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 10:40 AM

feather beds got nothin' on kitten beds!

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 10:48 AM

The fac that she's adopted the babies makes this three times as cute.

I wish some of the HUMAN foster mothers I work with had that strong a maternal drive.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 10:49 AM

It is somehow EVEN CUTER that she's akshully the babysitter! (and literally)

crouching tortie, hidden marmies.

 |  Nov 16, 2008 at 11:18 AM

@everyone -- well, I have always depended on the kindness of strangers, myself. :) thanx for noticing.
