A Kitteh Visit

Last weekend, Daniel and I drove down to Stuttgart to visit the new kittens.

Just look at this kitty pile!


We are pretty much decided on getting 2 more kittens. (Yes, two.  Don't judge. We wanted them all.)

This is Kaia.  She's a blue-tabby point and can come home to us mid-October.


This is Lu.  He's a creme point and we can get him in early November.


Doesn't he bear a striking resemblance to Kiefer Sutherland in the Lost Boys?


This is how Emmy took the news.


That is all.

Oh MY GOD!!! I want to wrap them all up in a blanket and steal them all for ME.

Kaia's eyes!!! SO adorable and Lu! he does look like Kiefer Sutherland! Uncanny. Seriously, when i come to germany i'm banging down your door to see these kitties!

Rhiannon Hart said...

TWO MOAR KITTEHS!!! Lenore you are so lucky!!!

Rhiannon Hart said...

I know, I'm absent the whole of Dystopian August but I'm here for the kittehs. Serendipity I assure you.

OMG. Pile o' kittehs.

Alessandra @Out of the Blue said...

How adorable. I'd want them all, too :D Lu stole my heart.

Emmy doesn't seem very enthusiastic, to tell the truth. She's got a "whatever, just let me take my nap" attitude. Lol.

Shy said...

Awwww... Lu seriously melt my heart! And if I'm there, I'd certainly want to keep them ALL. Cannot wait to have one myself one day.

Me.Love.Kitties!!

JKB said...

They.

Are.

So.

Adorable!!!!

Definitely the most adorable 'hairy' kittens I've ever seen! I love them!!

(I can't blame you one bit, I would've taken them all too!)

Sandy Nawrot said...

Oh a big pile of kittehs. I think I would need them all. This is my trouble, and why we have five in our house right now. Life is going to be crazy with two babies in your house. I can't wait for the pictures.

Jenn's Bookshelves said...

Oh how adorable!! That's one of the things I miss about the adoption with our two cats. Both were already over a year old, no longer kittens. I miss having kittens in the house!

Tara (The Bodacious Pen) said...

They are adorable! Emmy looks thrilled at the prospect of having two little ones romping around.

bermudaonion said...

I would want them all too! It would be so hard to leave any of those cuties behind. I can't wait to see all the new kitten pictures!

Linda said...

I would have wanted to take them all home too! They are SO adorable. And the picture of Emmy cracked me up!

Sabrina @ about happy books said...

Love your new kitties. Are they Birman?

We also have four cats at home (four boys) and they are so much fun.

Amanda said...

Those kitties are adorable!!

Library Cat said...

They are beautiful. I just want to wrap them in a hug!

Book Butterfly (Kim) said...

Oh my goodness! Congratulations. Your photo of Kiefer made me laugh so hard. There was a resemblance!
I'm so happy for you. :)

Janicu said...

Awwww. Nothing lifts a bad mood better than looking at fluffy kittens in a pile.

Trisha said...

Too adorable!

Amused said...

They are soooo cute :)

SuziQoregon said...

Soooo cute!! I'm reasonably sure that I'm already head over heels in love with Kaia.

Jess (The Cozy Reader) said...

They're all adorable! Emmy looks thrilled! :)

Melissa (Betty and Boo's Mommy) said...

Kaia's eyes are the most incredible blue I have ever seen on a feline. Just gorgeous.

They are precious kittehs. I would have wanted all of them too.

Very exciting that they will be coming home with you and Daniel in just a few short weeks. Congrats!

Jodie said...

Awww kittehs. I don't know how you resisted buying them all up.

Rhiannon said...

boy oh boy, one look at your new fuzzy babies and nobody will judge getting two! I want the whole litter!
And after losing Topaz in May we ended up adopting two more cats as well. But that means we now have 4!!! so feel good you'll only have three!
Emmy will love them, they are too cute for her to be anything but fascinated with them.

Sandy Shin said...

Aw, they look so adorable. <3

trish said...

I won't judge because I'm JEALOUS! I just want to take the kittehs home with me in my mouth like a momma kitteh does. They're just so...nuzzleable!

Alyce said...

They are so adorable! Such personalities between those two new kitties - I can't wait to hear about all of the mischief they get up to.

Stephanie said...

OH OH OH!!!!!!!! Congratulations on picking out your new family members! I'm so happy for you- I've been wondering how you guys are doing lately and if it was kitteh time yet. :D This post put a huge smile on my face. What gorgeous little babies. LOVE THEM!!!

Stephanie said...

I would be inclined to take the whole litter at once too! And I don't think you're crazy at all for getting two. I got three kittens at once. They are all three years old now and I have never regretted it for a second.

Daphne said...

Congratulations on the new additions to your family! Can't blame you for wanting to take them all - they are so beautiful and it will be fun watching them grow (since I'm guessing you will be posting pictures!!).

~The Book Pixie said...

They are soooo adorable! Looking forward to seeing more pictures of the little darlings! :D

~Briana

Erica said...

Aw, they are so adorable!

steph said...

Hahahaha! So cute but also a hilarious post! Love the resemblance pics and the last one.

Sarahbear9789 said...

Omg! So cute!

Chris said...

OMG they're so adorable Lenore!!! Y'all will make perfect parents for them :D

Chris said...

AW, so cute! Can I have a couple? ;)

He does look like vampire Keifer.

Michelle @ The True Book Addict said...

OMG...ADORABLE! I'm so glad that you're getting another...I mean two...new kittens! I think Emmy will be happy, once she gets used to them. Great names you have picked out too. I'm really wanting to get Alis a companion. I've got to get her to the vet for a check-up and shots. Then I can look into bringing another kitty home. When I do, I'll be sure to share pics on Cat Thursday. Congrats on your impending arrivals!

Awww, kitteh pile!

They are both so snuggly looking, I'd like to steal the rest for me! I'm sure Emmy will come to love them both :)

Memory said...

Oh my goodness--cuteness overload!

I'd never judge you for getting two kitties at once. If I could've swung it, I'd have gotten two puppies instead of one. :)

Dwayne said...

I am a SUCKER for cute kittens so you can imagine the amount of gushing I just did. Damn!

Zibilee said...

Oh Lenore! They are gorgeous! I am so excited for you and will look forward to getting to know the new little ones!

Michelle said...

Gah what a fabulous laugh that Kiefer comparison is. Thank you! Cute kitties to be had. I'm sure once they get home with you and Emmy shows them who's boss she'll perk right up. ;)

Jenny said...

My God, those kittens are cute. I do not judge. I would not have been able to resist them either.

kay - Infinite Shelf said...

Oh my, that's more cuteness than my heart can take! I'm surprised you picked only two, haha! :D

I think Emmy is getting all the rest she needs before the arrival of two new furry balls of energy!

Christie (The Fiction Enthusiast) said...

Awe! Gorgeous kitties! Not judging at all. I would have had trouble choosing just two. Your post also makes me pine for Germany. We’re American, but had the pleasure of living in Heidelberg for 5 years. We didn’t want to leave and are actively trying to get an assignment there again :)

Beth S. said...

I don't even like cats, and even I can't deny how adorable that is!

Staci said...

They are too adorable and sure to make life very interesting and fun!!!

Esme said...

They are just adorable.

Michelle said...

What adorable kittehs! I can see why you wanted them all. I can't wait to hear about the adventures of Emmy, Lu and Kaia!!

Melissa @ Mel's Books and Info said...

They are adorable! I bet you can't wait to bring them home! Best wishes!

Jamie said...

OH my goodness!! Cute kitties!!! :)

Heather Zundel said...

Oh my goodness!!! I may literally just die right now. Why those names (they're lovely, by the way), if I may ask? :)

Andi said...

ADORABLES! *cheek smoosh*

alitareads said...

Aw, sweet little kitties! Your two new additions are adorable.

Anonymous said...

They both look adorable and will be a nice edition to your home. Just hope Emmy can get along with 2 more cats. She has been the center of attention for a while, so it make take longer for her to adjust this time.

Lily Child said...

LOVE THIS POST!!!

The kitty pile is ADORABLE! I can't blame you for deciding on 2! Kaia looks precious! Lu definitely looks a bit more energetic, shall we say?

The picture of Emmy is just too much for words!!!

Thanks for sharing! :D

Amanda said...

Aw! They are so cute! I feel you on the more kitties thing. I've only had mine a year, and I'm already fighting a desire to get another.

Heather said...

OMG TOO CUTE!!! I would want them all too XD

New follower here, I enjoy your blog :)

Jeanne said...

They are adorable! I like the way you think, getting two more...I'm eagerly anticipating photos of the kitty piles later this fall.

Ladybug said...

Oh they were adorable, all of them *melt*

Don't let my cat know I said that, I'm pretty sure she'll be a little jealous.. ;)

stacybuckeye said...

So adorable! I'm sure Emmy will come around :)

Brimful Curiosities said...

Jenny Girl said...

Oh this is hust way too cute! Congrats on the new additions to the family and I would never judge a fellow animal lover.
