Kitten update

Many of you have been asking me for news on the kitten front so here is a final update...well final on 2 of them anyway. Something tells me there may still be the occasional Lemon story :) Scottie and Carmel went to their new homes yesterday!
Daniel and Sarah took them to the local Vons and sold them for $20 each--quite the little capitalists huh? The first family was looking specifically for an orange kitty for their son. The second couple was looking for a kitten for their daughter (who has diabetes) whose beloved cat had gotten lost when they moved. They brought Scottie home to surprise her :) So two happy endings for those little kitties.
And Lemon....remains happily (although apparently with some sleeping position issues) ensconced in our home. Does anyone else have a cat who prefers to sleep on it's back? Weird.

But cute.
I promise to be back with quilty stuff next time :)

OH MY GOSH,,,,,your kitty sleeping like it does is just cuteness!!! You are keeping that one right!!! to cute, to cute, to cute!!!

I was wondering how you were doing with all of them :O)...Glad you found homes for some :O)...

Amanda said...

I'm so glad they all survived. I love marmalade coloured cats - my favourite cat ever was a marmalade and we named him Orlando, after a character in a book named Orlando the Marmalade Cat. It'll be good to see some quilty stuff, but lots more of your cute kitten too please.

Lemon couldn't be cuter...Andy and I laughed and laughed...thanks for catching us up.

hee-hee-hee! Those are the most beautiful kittens, and Lemon is so cute and funny! Hope to see more of that one!

Bren said...

Lemon is adorable. I do see sleeping position issues too! Once in a while a cat will sleep like that, but it appears your Lemon makes a habit of it! Too cute!!

Cara said...

I have two Maltese dogs who sleep on their backs too. It really is freaky.

Sheila said...

I just had to show my adult son the pictures of Lemon. I stumbled onto your blog moments ago. We are in love with him . . . Lemon, I mean. He told me to buy Lemon, but we do live in Idaho. What an adorable cat. My sister has a cat named Rudy who loves to sleep on his back and in other adorable positions. He's also yellow.

Quilty is good but the Lemon pictures are a hoot! I am so glad all the kittens survived and the other two have found homes. This was a terrific post!

Barbara said...

I am not a cat person AT ALL but Lemon is the cutest thing in the world!! His extreme cuteness could almost convert me. LOL! You can't get rid of him!

Thats the cutest little kitten I have ever seen...and seen nothing like that way of sleeping either...*LOL*...I totally agree with
"That´s a kitten with style"!

Cheryl said...

OMW - isn't that the best kittie picture ever! And love the name Lemon. Great pictures and thanks for the nice update on the other sweeties.

Stephanie said...

Yes, my 15 year old cat loves to sleep on his back, paws stretched over his head, especially in the sun.

mamaspark said...

Several of my kitties like to sleep this way. Or in other *odd* positions! Thank you for sharing the cutest pictures ever with us. I love the cat photos as much as the quilt ones!

Tracy said...

Too cute!!! Glad your computer is working better. The kitties are adorable, I am glad you are keeping Lemon, she is precious. Love how she sleeps:)

Judy said...

Lemon MUST have ragdoll in him/her...all my ragdolls sleep like that! Good thing i don't live close...or bad. So cute.

AllyJo said...

Kittens show me God is so sweet and loves to bless humans with cuddles. They some of my favorite things in the whole wide world. If I had been there, I would have bought one.

Karen said...

Oh so cute! Sounds like Lemon has come to stay. The sleeping on the back pictures are a hoot!

Kim said...

Looks like you have yourself a little friend for life there now...my orange tabby sleeps on his back a lot, but your little one looks as relaxed as an old dog! :)

I was so glad to see all the kitties made it ok. They are all so precious. I have 8 and love them all. I looked just about every day for a post about your kitties. they kind of fit in with quilting. lol

Christine said...

Your kittens are adorable. I love the pictures of Lemon - really make my smile. Thanks for sharing.

Patchwork Penguin said...

Awwwwwwwww they are so cute!!! My oldest daughter wants an orange cat. Told her she'd have to wait until she moves out. Of course, after the twins and I saw the pictures of the kittens, we wanted them all LOL

Hugs!!

Lemon is adorable. I wish I lived closer to you I would definately take one off of your hands. I want a kitty-cat so bad it HURTS!!! Thanks for the adorable cuteness!

BusyLittleQuilter said...

That's too adorable.

Mine jumped into my lap today while I was in my recliner/rocker. He laid on his back and started moving like he wanted me to rock him; so I did! I love cats with a personality!

StitchinByTheLake said...

What a cute kitten! Makes me miss my Jackson - lost him this winter at the age of 12 (to diabetes). Might be time to start looking. :)

Phyl said...

OMG~ How cute is Lemon? Your kids are amazing...you can't even give kittens away around here!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Absolutely hilarious kitty sleeping pics. I'm telling you next to a new born baby, a little kitten is about the most darling thing around. I just want to reach in and touch them and love them. Its hard to give homes but it is a relief. I speak as someone who knows! We've had similar things happen more than once at our house. You did a great job with them. You can be happy with that.

Wendy said...

That is the most cutest thing I've ever seen, sleeping on his back like that. I'm glad you found good home for those sweet kitties.

Janet said...
