After several weeks of moving around, Spook and her kittens have finally made it home -- that is, my home. I just took a few quick photos but will have more once the kittens get a little bigger and Spook isn't as "spooked".

Five beautiful babies, born Dec. 1.

Think there's some resemblence between Spook & Nico? We think she's his mother.


Also, I don't really like the name Spook...someone just started calling her that since she showed up around Halloween and it stuck. Anyone have a name suggestion for her?

Hippyhart, They are so adorable! I can't think of any names off hand but I like the Salem idea. It does seem to fit her. Thanks for sharing those beautiful babies and mommy with us! They are so lucky to have you! Looking forward to seeing more pics. They grow up way to fast right before our eyes! :D :D :D :D :D :D

Ok, I'll get some more today while it is sunny out. I think three of them have their eyes open, so I'll try to get some good face shots.

Hippyhart, How about the name Midnight for Spook? Thats what I named one of the feral cats that I feed. I have names for all of them. The one that I feed looks just like Spook! Only this one looks alittle bit smaller I guess because he must be younger. He just started coming around a few months ago. Well, lets us know on what name you pick. Hope mommy and kitties are doing good! :D

She's beautiful. I do like the name Cricket. Last night I started calling Mia "Peep" and thought that would also be a cute name for a kitty who makes funny little noises.

So, are you fostering them? Keeping them?

She is a very friendly outside cat that showed up around Halloween -- I'm hoping to find her and the kittens' homes, since I have two cats already and don't really want another one (of course, that will probably change in the next few weeks), so I am just fostering them for now.

She has been really good the past few days, not make a sound or complaining. I did give her roaming privileges of my bedroom this morning (she and the kittens are staying in the bathroom for now, which is connected to the bedroom), and she moved all the kittens under the bed, so I had to pull off the mattress and box springs and put them back in their nest. I going to have to keep her in the bathroom until I find another place to put her, since it's no place to keep a kitty.

Spook is so beautiful, I wish I could have her! I think if she was mine I'd call her Raven, or Persephone (goddess of the Underworld). Can't wait for kitten updates!

re:kittens

Hippyhart, I really think you should keep Spook . Especially all you went through to help her ( and her babies ) . I know what you mean when you say you didn't plan on any more to keep. Like I said I planned on just one kitty ( besides my elder cat ) and I ended up with three kitties. But I know that I made the right choice even though that wasn't my plan from the start. I love every minute with all of them. I hope you can find good homes for all her babies too. Well, good luck on whatever decide. :D

Thanks, Cameo. It will be several weeks before we decide on what to do with Spook, and it will all depend on if she gets along with my other cats. She was a bully to the other cats outside, especially about food, but I'm thinking it was just hormonal, so we'll see what happens.

Anyway, I'm working now while the kittens are young to find them homes -- I have several people in mind who have expressed the desire for a kitten at one time or who already have a cat that may need a buddy, so I'm hoping they will all be spoken for by the time they are ready to go. For the others I can't find homes for, I will be taking to a local petshop that takes in kittens and puppies from private breeders (no puppy and kitty mills!). Spook will be the toughest one to find a home for, but she is really sweet and good natured that I'm sure it won't be too hard.
