Stanley lives to steal my chair, even when he has to share it with his little brother. Spoiler: he always has to share it.
Category: Kitten Pic of the Day
A subset of Critter Pics of the Day, focusing on a year of daily shots when we got a new kitten. Any future new kitties will be added to this category.
CPotD #370: Smiling Sleeper
Post-dinner multi-snugs happen every night now, and I love them. These two have bonded thoroughly despite driving each other batty.
CPotD #369: We Were All Young, Once
Selling a home and moving is stressful. I want a cute freaking kitten to help this morning, so you all get a throwback picture!
KPotD #365: A Year of Insanity
And just like that, it’s been 365 days. A year ago, we brought home a tiny ball of fuzz and hiss who hid behind the dryer and under the recliner while he got his bearings. He took to us pretty quickly, though.
KPotD #364: Little Long Tail
Oscar has really grown into his tail over the past year. It’s as long and sleek as he is, but it can be hard to see when he’s curled up or tearing by on a rampage. I got a nice shot of it this afternoon while he was hanging out with Stan.
KPotD #363: Rodent Guardian
Udo and Stan joined us for our photo shoot this morning and Oscar was hard put to defend his mouse from both fronts. Udo doesn’t chew on the mice, but he does occasionally pick them up and run off with them, so Oscar had a valid concern here.
KPotD #362: Monster Under the Bed
Lately when I can’t find Oscar, I go check under the bed. It’s become his go-to fort for when the dog is being too stompy or loud, but tonight he was just hanging out under there for funsies.
KPotD #361: Sleepy Face
I accidentally woke Oscar from his morning nap and his expression was so cute I had to capture it. He has the sweetest sleepy face I’ve ever seen. Granted, it was quickly morphing into a Class A Stinkeye because I woke him up, but it’s still cute.
KPotD #360: Loud Noises
While he’s generally a pretty confident kitten, Oscar is not a fan of loud noises. This includes Udo barking up a storm when a leaf blows by or someone closes a car door. He saw a neighbor dog out front today and kicked up such a ruckus that Oscar went skittering under the bed. I managed to coax him out for a picture, but he was wary.
KPotD #359: Assertive
Oscar takes a little while to warm up to new people, but he’s never been shy about making his wishes known. He’s actually a bit pushy, and he loves to get in your face about it. For example…
