Tuesday Eye Candy: My Latest Project

Want to see something cute? Actually, two "something cute"s...

These kitty babies have been my latest project for the past 5 weeks. Their mama, Maude, was a stray that I took in for the snowy winter. Little did I know that she was pregnant, and one day I walked in to find her snuggled in the closet with her litter of kittens. Very sadly, Miss Maude died a few days after the delivery, but lucky for us she left us with these two adorable little critters. I've really had my hands full since then - bottle feeding at all hours, etc, etc - but now they are old enough to take care of themselves to some extent, which means I get to enjoy them even more. They've been coming to the office with me every day... you can see them hanging out on my desk here! The brown tabby is Mabel and her sister with the white fur is Maude Jr, or Maudsie, after her mama. I haven't been blogging much lately, and Mabel and Maude are partially why. (Oh, and also my crazy work schedule and the upcoming wedding...) Anyway, enjoy the cuteness!

awww, so sweet! I love that you saved them, I think it is so important to take care of the animals around us (I have two rescue doggies.) If I could be around cats without my through closing up and hives, then I would have some! So cute!

I love that you took in a stray and cared for her and her kittens. I'm sorry Maude passed away but look at her beautiful kittens! They are alive and happy because of you. Amazing. :)

I'm so jealous! I've wanted kitties for so long but my husband thinks a dog and three birds is enough. What-Ever!

So adorable, I was literally just in the same boat--you can see the litter we found literally living in a boat sans a mommy right here:

I'm glad there are people like us ready to take care of these critters when there is no one else to do so. The shelters can only do so much. It is up to everyone else to do their part as responsible pet owners to make sure cute little babies like this can live happy and healthy lives!
