The litter that started it all! I can’t tell you how much pleasure it has given me to watch kitty cams on the web. It sounds like a silly waste of time but the wonderful stories of love, caring and creativity have been inspiring (resulting in beautiful quilts, drawings, paintings and T-shirts). The seven kittens from Pittsburgh led to Foster Dad John Barrett from Purrfect Pals in Washington state and his string of successful fosters (he’s on his 36th litter) You can find him with his current litter, the Mythbusters, on LiveStream; his Facebook page is called The Critter Room.
A long day can be made special watching the antics of 4 week old kittens just learning to play and zoom around on wobbly legs (as they are now on the Mythbusters cam). My vocabulary has grown with “new words:”
- floofy (means fluffy)
- zoomies (means playing frantically)
- Uncle Chickenfish (a favorite toy)
Noodles, the lovely blond mother of the Seven Kittens was rescued from the streets and taken into a private home by two very generous women, Jen and Kara. Watching seven hungry kittens feed from one mother all at the same time was quite the site to see!
Here are the little guys and gals that started it all, at 2 months of age:
And here are five of them, all grown up:
And here is my favorite picture of all:
My, how they’ve grown!
Here some links to the original story of the Seven Kittens:
- Seven Kittens show us what an ideal world can look like
- The Metaphor of Seven Kittens
- Sisters, sisters …
Those posts spawned a wonderful Kitty Scrapbook by members of the community.
You can also catch up on the litter on The Seven Kittens blog on Facebook.
Thanks to the generous foster parents for your care of these wonderful creatures, and for all the wonderful hours of fun and inspiration!
