"Mom, for a minute there I thought Tailless was lost. Then I realized I accidentally put her in the dirty clothes bin. She was hiding in a towel I threw in."

Never a dull moment when the kittens hide in the dirty clothes piles. I've had them squeak at me when I picked up clothes to take downstairs. Nothing like laundry piles that squeak at you.

Bud continues to be an ear sucker. #2 Son has trained him to come to his name and just generally spoiled him. Forrest wants to be held all of the time. She will make a great lap cat for someone who is home a lot and can sit and pet her.

The adult cats are in sneak attack mode, trying to scarf kitten chow every time they can get away with it. Hope, the sausage on legs, is especially bad about it.

Pets are not quite reliably potty trained 2 year olds sometimes.
