Springtime means kitten time at animal shelters. It has been a long time since we have had any teeny-tinies to foster, since we had an adult cat all last summer as we waited for him to find a forever home.

This week, we got our first batch of spring chicks.

I have named them after two young women in my knitting group.

So meet Leah:

And Erika:

To give you an idea of how tiny they are, here is Erika playing with a tennis ball (I think the ball is winning).

And here they are, together, eating of course (not ginger cookies, like the real Leah and Erika).

All together now: Ahhhhhhhhhhh!


  1. Happiness in two little kittens, aaaaaahhh indeed. And so tiny, I had forgotten how small they are .Lovely names, Cheers, and hugs to the littlies. Jean.

  2. Thank you for calling the kitten Erika.
