My cute kitten...

Ok, i couldn't resist...I had to post a picture of one of my kittens. Now before any one thinks differently, I do believe in spaying an neutering all pet animals that are not being keep for breeding purposes.
That being said, the story goes like this...the momma cat was "deserted" by her previous owners and she moved in with us...just showed up and moved in. And of course she was pregnant, well she had 5 kittens and now has a appointment with the local vet. In the mean time we have been finding homes for the babies...the very cute babies!
But this one just has IT, she is the new IT kitty...we call her Namaste because she looks just like the white tiger at the Panaewa zoo that is named Namaste (Namaste is Hindi for a common Indian greeting meaning "I bow to you", when you see some one from India put both hands together in front of them and gently incline their upper body, this is what they usually are saying/doing. The tiger was a gift to us from India so the naming is very appropriate.) Except that Namaste the tiger has gorgeous Sapphire blue eyes while our Namaste looks like she will have dreamy gold ones.
The woven mat she is laying on is called a Lauhala mat and it is made by weaving treated/cured palm fronds together, they are very useful and most everyone has at least one. You can take them to the beach or forest to sit on, leave them on the lanai for muddy slippers or put them under you bed for a decorative accent (they also protect the floor much like a rug will). And they make great cat toys!

Your photograph of the kitten is eye-catching and made me smile. While I am not a cat person, I have one daughter who just has 11 cats. All but one is outside. She had all of them "fixed" and they seem to do well. Anyway, I must say your narrative was very interesting.

My second episode shows the robin with her head down the baby robin's throat. It was posted this morning.

cute kitty! I love the little paws!

The paws are adorable, but if she had them bottom facing up you would see that they are almost all black on the bottoms, everything else on her is light grey and white, just those black soles...

Hello. What a lovely little kitten. If you visit my blogsite you will find pictures of kittens and the arguments for and against cats! You have taken the words out of my mouth about neutering domestic animals unless they are used for breeding.
