Yesterday our kittens, Ivy and Ingram, got fixed, even though they weren't broken.  And now they are ready to be adopted!  Mom has been taking pictures of them, and she also wrote a little bio for each kitten and sent it to the lady who puts the cats on Petfinder.  So soon people will see our kittens and they will instantly want to adopt them.  And if they don't get adopted by next Saturday, Mom will take them to PetSmart.

Anyway, Mom took lots more pictures than she could use for Petfinder, which is why she said I should put some of these pictures in my blog.  And as I have mentioned before, I like to do whatever makes Mom happy because I know which side my bread is buttered on, as they say.  Except that I think I would rather have cheese spread or peanut butter on my bread.

Okay, so here's the first picture of Ivy, and you can tell from this picture just how big she is, or at least you can tell if you know the size of Mom's hand.

And this one shows Ivy playing with Mom's shoelaces, so that's another way to see what size Ivy is, because Mom wears a size 7.5 shoe.  Also, I will tell you that when Ivy got spayed yesterday, she weighed 2 pounds, 1 ounce, which is just barely big enough to be spayed.

In this photo, Ivy is on the back of the sofa, with our lovely orange wall behind her.  Personally, I think Ivy looks good with an orange background.

This one shows Ivy sitting on top the crate where the kittens live most of the time.  Ivy likes to sit up there sometimes and watch TV, which is something that Jason used to do.

And in this picture, Ivy is trying to play with the camera strap while Mom is taking the photo.  Silly kitten!

Okay, so now I will show you some pictures of Ingram.  Here he is sitting on the floor, looking cute.

And in this picture, you can see his little stubby tail.  We are hoping that there are people out there wanting Manx kittens, since that's the main thing that makes Ingram different from all the other black kittens who are looking for homes.

Here is Ingram showing off his sharp claws, like some kind of tiny little panther.

I like this picture because Ingram looks totally surprised and sort of cross-eyed.  I'm not sure why he looked that way, but I think it's funny.

And this last one makes me think of Halloween, with a black cat and an orange wall.  Of course, it's a little early to think about Halloween, but if someone adopts Ingram now, they will be all ready for the holiday when it gets here!

We were supposed to get another foster kitten, but Aunt Tania couldn't bring him to Mom at the shelter yesterday, so she's going to bring him to Mom tomorrow.  Dante is a flame-point Siamese.  When I heard this, I thought maybe he would breathe out fire like a dragon, but Mom said he won't be doing that, and I should just wait and see what he looks like.  Well, I was relieved to learn that Dante is not a fire-breathing kitten, because that would be really scary!


  1. We hope Ingram and Ivy gets adopted! They're so cute.

    Hi, Piper. Nice meeting you. We dropped by to follow you because Tegan says you have a pretty blog.

    Huggies and Cheese,


    1. Dear Haopee,

      Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm glad you like it. Also thanks for the good wishes for Ingram and Ivy. We all have our paws crossed here, hoping that the kittens get adopted very soon!

      Your friend, Piper

  2. Dear Piper,
    Tas really would have loved to adopt Ivy and Ingram but she says that its way too far away to adopt them and it would have been great if Amber had a playmate but too bad they're not in New York. I'm glad the kittens aren't broken because that way they can live longer and happier lives!

    1. Dear Fluffy,
      I'm glad Tas likes the kittens and wishes she could adopt them. I am sure there are plenty of kittens in New York that also need homes. It seems like there are kittens everywhere this time of year!
      Your friend, Piper

  3. I have a Manx kitten male about 18 weeks, he could be Ingrams twin :) His name is Minx mainly because he is full of spit and vinigar, I WISH i had the energy he does!!

    1. Black kitties are the best! It's been a couple of years since Ingram got adopted. I hope he is doing well in his forever home. Best wishes to you and Minx!
