Our New Kittens!

Posted by F&S

Yesterday, Martha dashed out to the Hamptons with Uncle Carlos and, of course, took G.K. and us with her.  There was very little time to post a new Daily Wag, so we are allowing the new kittens (yes – there are new kittens!) to blog for us today.  We're happy to introduce you to Kublai Khan and Ch'in, both of whom are named after Chinese emperors.

Hey, Kublai Khan!  Let's explore our new home!

Okay, Ch'in!  There sure are lots of places to cozy into up here!  What is this room for, anyway?

I think Martha referred to it as her craft room.  She said we have to stay up here until we adjust, and then she'll slowly introduce us to the rest of the house.  Let's see what this craft room is all about!

There are lots of desks, Ch'in.  I see some paint, paper and...look!  There are photos of cats on the wall!

You're right, Kublai.  These are photos of Martha's other cats.  The two on the right are our sisters, Empress Tang and Princess Peony.  We have the same mother, you know. The other cat on the left is Bartok.

Bartok is a Himalayan, a breed that was developed by mating a Siamese with a Persian.  They have long hair, like us, but their coloring comes from their Siamese side.

That's great, Ch'in, but I'm already moving on in the room.  I found a sewing machine over here.

What are we going to do with that?  I'm more interested in this wall of thread spools.  These look like they will be fun to bat with our paws!

Ch'in, over here!  I found some cat stuff!  Like this litter box and scoop!

And here's a brush for our fur!  Persians are noted for having long, thick coats.  We need regular brushings to keep us looking our best.

Oh Ch'in, look at these great water dishes from the Martha Stewart Pets line at PetSmart!

And what's this?  Ch'in, did one of the canaries escape?

Oh no, Kublai!  Better catch it!  We just moved in.  We don't want Martha to think we're irresponsible!

Wait a minute, Ch'in...we've been fooled!  It's just a feather on a string!

I think that's enough exercise for now, Kublai.  Let's not over exert ourselves.  We have so much to explore and so much time to do it!

  • Hello Ladies,
    Congratulations on the new kittens! Are they boys or girls, or both? Forgive me for asking. I think one is a boy's name Kublai Khan, but not sure on the other. How many cats does this make for Mama Martha now? You grls will have to be on your toes now, with more little ones in the house. I can't imagine them being in my craft room. They would have a hay day with all my yarn and needles and threads and inks and....well you get the idea. Zoe would have fun in my studio. I know you kids will show the kittens a welcome time. Take care all you little ones.
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn
    and have a great Tuesday and keep cool to all my Glue Squad buddies.

  • Well now, welcome to the Glue Squad family Ch'in and Kublai Khan. You are furry like GK, Kirby, Missy Chow and myself. I am Maddox, GK's dad. I am pleased to meet you I must say, Kublai Khan in some of the pictures you look like a little tumbleweed with a face on it. Don't take that the wrong way, I think you are super. I hope you get along with the other cats and Franny, Sharkey and GK. You will have a great time at the farm. Wait till you see the donks and the horses and chickens, roosters, ducks and canaries. Oh, on second thought the canaries are in the house. You better avoid the canaries for a while
    Hehehehehe
    There is power again at the Roberts house. That means they will have hot water. That means a bath might be in order. Oh boy. I will check back with everyone in the morning.
    You kittens will like the members of the Glue Squad. We are a good bunch of unique characters. If you need help with keeping ducks in line, shredding TP, chasing critters, anything like that, just let us know.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • F & S not two more fur balls!!! Well I guess you can think of it this way 2 more toys to chase around ;) They are cut little things, I'd like to chase one of those around the house would be lots of fun.

    T-Bone was freaking out last night the fireworks have started. I tried to tell him they won't hurt us but he is a big baby. Cries and shakes so mom has to hug him - maybe he does it just for the attention.

    So yesterday I had to go see Dr. Keefe. I had to go back on the steroids so I stop scratching. I started to lick my paws and mom said enough I had to go see the doc. We are starting a new medication as well to see if that helps. I'm not scratching anything to the point it is raw I just itch. Doc also agreed that the salt water is good for my skin I should have peed on him right then and there :(

    Well mom is leaving for church she is having a mass said today for her dad it has been 7 years since his passing. Mom is always sad on this day she really misses him.

  • I am tickled pink that Martha added more furry friends to her already furry brood! :)

    How do you keep track of so many cats! :)

    Tie bells around their neck?

    Are Tang and Peony happy to welcome their sisters into the home? Or are they a bit miffed?

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Two more furballs around the house? Well I guess everyone needs a good home and they have found one. You three seem to keep things in order there. I’m with Zoe; just let them find the TP and watch them go for it. That’ll keep them quiet for a while. It’s time for the fireworks to start; started last night and will be going on for the next few days. What’s happened to July? The first week and it is really short. Have a holiday right in the middle of the week. I guess it’s fun time for most people; others have to work. Doesn’t seem fair; everyone should take the day off. Have a Happy Fourth everyone.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Good morning ladies!
    Wow, new furballs...oops, I mean friends. They sure are cute! You'll have to show them around when they are ready.
    Anywho, welcome Ku'blai & Chin to our little family. We glue-squaders are a super bunch with lots of advice to pass around.
    Enjoy your new home.
    P.S. Mimi wishes she could have that sewing room!
    Happy Independence Day to all! Everyone at our house was upset to hear about all the storm damage out East.
    Your pal,
    tryin'-to-beat-the-heat Rebel

  • Hi F,S,&GK+Glue Squad, WOW! Those new kittens sure are cute and how nice they are related to Tang and Peony! I'm sure you girls and GK will be very kind to them and show them around the farm whenever they are ready to go outside!

I love the comments our Glue Squad is giving you new babies! Zoe, sure hope you get rid of your terrible itching! We have a buddy across the street who has the same thing and no one has figured out how to get rid of the itch-poor little guy! Hope all of you have cooler weather like we get and stay safe during the fireworks! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS Today is my Mom's 75th Birthday and I love her to pieces!

  • ..cute little fur-balls..but most importantly HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jan..I know Dudley will make this a special day for you..I will bark and act naughty all day in your honor..eat a big piece of cake for us. love, Cora-Belle, James and Lucinda

  • Dudley,
    Got to thinking about Mom's birthday, and maybe Cora Belle can tell you where to round up some Chiweenies in your neighborhood, so you can invite them to a big celebration for your Mom. We know Chiweenies love to party. Have fun and give her lots of "cc" time for her birthday. You know us Moms, we love that.
    Hugs,
    Lynn

  • Happy Happy 75th B-Day Dudley's Mom Jan!!! Hope you have a terrific and wonderful day! :smile: New family members welcome aboard Ch'in and Kublai Khan. Blessings to Verdi who recently passed away. What a long and wonderful life he lived.

    I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing 4th of July. Zoe hope your itching goes away. Give your Mom lots of extra love today. :smile:

  • ..Back again..hope Kitty is okay..now I am worried about her..and salt water for itching..cheez that doesn't sound good to me..forgot to tell all of you wild pals of mine to have a safe and sane 4th tomarrow..I might venture out for a maple bar later today and check out the crowd at the beach..Glue squad forever!!over and out, Cora-Belle

  • Happy Birthday to Dudley's mom. Dudley will have to tell us all about your special day . Zoe, I hope your itchiness goes away. Cora-belle, I hope you get lots of maple bars and get one for Lucinda too. That might help her to forget about her bad back. Abby, you are so sweet. I am not our leader. We really don't have a leader. We all sort of lead. Well , I hope everyone has a great Fourth of July and gets to party like a rock star
    Later,
    Maddox

  • Hi Girls, GK & Glue Squad & Lynn, Welcome kitties, both of you are so cute. I'm sure your sisters will teach you the ropes and show you around the farm while keeping an eye out for F &S. Happy Birthday, Jan hope you had a wonderful celebration. Dudley Do Right, hope you are planning a party for your Mom. I'm able to have some late computer time tonight. Mom had a late afternoon appointment at the eye doctors, everything turned out okay. Then Mom & Dad helped a lady down the street mow her lawn, so they wouldn't have to do it in the morning. It's suppose to be hot and humid, so that means I may inside most of the day. I don't think I'll mind it at all. Cora-Belle , did you get some maple bars? Zoe, hope you are feeling better and the itching stops soon. Delia, hope Kitty will be okay, did she jump or land the wrong way?

    Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. Stay safe :)

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

    Ps Cora-Belle, A" delayed" thank you for explaining the Chiweenies - ;)

  • Martha, I'm not sure if your dogs are as smart as they are cute or as cute as they are smart. But I think these kittens are going to give them a run for their money.

  • Happy Birthday Dudley's Mom Jan!!! Have a Loving day and all the days and years to come with Health and Happiness. :-)

    delia & Kitty >^. .^<

  • Oh my, new kitties! Welcome to your new life, Little Ones. I'm Baby Favor, Francesca's Mom. I live with a cat and while I find her very interesting, I'm not sure if she wants to play with me or beat me up. I hope you two and Francesca and Sharkey get along really well. Hello to all the Glue Squad Crew here on the Fourth. I hope everyone stays cool and unafraid of all the loud sounds. (And maybe score a bit of hamburger or hot dog...)

  • Hi Wonderful Glue Squad Members, We are having a really nice 4th of July and it's almost finally 70 degrees here and it's very quiet right now with no fireworks yet! Sure hope all of you are having a great day! I told my Mom that I had mentioned it was her 75th Birthday yesterday and then told her that so many of you responded so nicely about my wonderful Mom and she was so pleased she told me to thank all of you! Thanks to Abby, Lynn, Cora-Belle, Sonya, Maddox, Missy Chow, and Delia!!!!!!!! She had a lovely day and went to lunch with her 89 year old friend Toby and I stayed home and protected our home until she returned! She gave me some nice treats to thank me-Lynn's great treats! Hope you all are having a great, safe day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
