If you missed this morning's live stream of my little visitor, here's a highlight for you. #EbonyVisits

Barbra

Ebony is coming over tomorrow morning to try out the new climbing wall, and I'm going to try live streaming for the first time! Probably 10:00 Pacific plus or minus a bit. I'll give a heads up 10 minutes before we start. Hope to "see" you then!

Barbra

Not much happening here...except bliss. (From earlier this week)

Barbra

It's done! Now all I need is some kittens to test it out! But guess what? Ray is Ebony's dad, and is going to bring Ebony over on the weekend to try it out. (This is from @CatastrophiCreations, and is made up from modules in their #CatMod system.) oh, and the tall post on far right is not crookedโ€ฆ It's just the camera angle :-)

Barbra

Ray doesn't know until the very end that I'm recording him ๐Ÿ˜‡#sneaky #shysmile #catastrophicreations By the way, Ray is Ebony's dad.

Barbra

Our #CatastrophiCreations wall is happening! Ray's only been at it for about 30 minutes and it's about 1/3 done. He says the quality is excellent but he does have one tweak that he would recommend to @CatastrophiCreations

PLEASE READ BEFORE LEAVING A DISAPPROVING COMMENT: Showing off Boom-Boom's brand-new ID #tattoo. Rest assured that this did not hurt: it was done during his neuter surgery so he didn't feel a thing. >>>>Why tattoo an animal? Identification tattoos and/or microchips are critical for ensuring that your companion animal can be reunited with you if lost. >>>>It's now standard veterinary procedure to get the tattoo and/or microchip done at the same time as the spay neuter. The only problem with the tattoo is that sometimes as the years go by it fades so it's hard to decipher. That's where the microchip is superior, however not all clinics or shelters have the microchip scanning equipment. >>>>Important reminder: if your contact information changes, or if you change veterinary clinics, be sure to update your contact information at both clinics. The ID includes an identifier specific to the particular clinic where the tattoo or chip was done.>>>>I have witnessed many joyful reunions of cats and owners thanks to the presence of a tattoo or chip.

Throwback to when WhiteTail finally started lapping from a dish. ๐Ÿ˜… Liberty (StripeyFace) investigates. #throwbackThursdays

Barbra

So happy to share this exciting news with you. All four #hockeykittens slept in their forever homes last night ๐Ÿก I'll tell more details as I get them ๐Ÿ˜€

Barbra

Well, that didn't take long! Good-bye sweet boy. I know you are playing happily with your #foreverfamily tonight. They are lucky to have you, and I bet they are in love with you already! #YvanCornyoyer #hockeykittens #hometonight

Barbra

The boys have settled into their deluxe suite at #PetSmart. (Petsmart does not sell animals, they provide rescue groups with a place to show their animals for adoption). True to form, Yvan Cornyoyer immediately started playing with the cool new toys; Boom-Boom was curious about the new sights and sounds; Rocket Richard busied himself at the food dish; and Jean Beliveau explored cautiously. Any guesses who will be #adopted first?

Barbra

Last, but certainly not least: Rocket Richard. I hope I did him justice with this bio: Rocket Richard lives up to his namesake 1960โ€™s hockey legend! He is lightening fast, clever with his paws, and smart! After the fun and games, he is the sweetest little lapcat you could imagine. He was born in a home so has been socialized to humans since day one. He would be well-suited to a home with kids and other pets, and would also enjoy an adult-only home.

Barbra

Number three of the hockey kittens โ€“ Yvan. Here's his little bio: Yvan Cornyoyer is an active and hilarious 10 week old kitten. He is the team leader - very quick to play and explore! He was born in a home so has been socialized to humans since day one. He would be well-suited to a home with kids and other pets, and would also enjoy an adult-only home. If you have another cat who needs some exercise, Yvan is the kitten for you. He would also hold his own with a dog, as he is fearless! #youcutie

I just found out that @catastrophicreations has officially launched their new #catmod system. My second box of components arrived this week and I'm hoping to get my wall installed this weekend. I'll take video of the installation process. It's supposed to be goof-proof - we'll see! #handywoman?

This is the photo that I used to advertise Boom-Boom. Although it doesn't show his face well, I like the way it shows his whole body and his curiosity.. Here is the bio I wrote for him: Boom-Boom Geoffrion is a gorgeous little black and white kitten. He's 10 weeks old, and very playful, cuddly and affectionate. He has a big purr and loves to snuggle. He was born in a home so has been socialized to humans since day one. Boom-Boom has a calm, playful and very affectionate personality. He would be well-suited to a home with kids and other pets, and would also enjoy an adult-only home. Boom-Boom likes to โ€œsuckleโ€ on your ear. Although he will eventually grow out of this, it would be a good idea to discourage this behaviour by gently pushing him away. His foster mom reports that he is such a sweet little character that she was very tempted to adopt him herself! #adoptdontshop

Barbra

We're getting to that time again - adoption day. Here's what I wrote to advertise this darling boy: Jean Beliveau is a sweet 10 week old brown and white tabby kitten. Calm and affectionate, he is gentler than his siblings, and can often be seen sitting slightly apart from them when they get too rough. Jean loves people and is a real lapcat. He was born in a home so has been socialized to humans since day one. Jean would be fine in a home with kids and other pets, and he would also enjoy being a little prince in an adult-only home.

Barbra

I know I say this every time, but these kittens are the sweetest ever! #volunteerwork is the #bestjobever

Barbra

Yes, Jean Beliveau...you may have anything you want. #swoon #tabbykitten #sweetest

Barbra

Lunar giving me a great shot for #tacoTongueTuesday (notice how slim he looks - this is from eight years ago, when he was 4 vs 12 now) ๐Ÿ˜…

Ruby (left) and his sister Blueberry the first night I got them. They were my very first foster kittens - July 2012! You can see from Ruby's eyes that he wasn't at all sure of what was going on!

#BlindNikko at six weeks, with brother Kato and sister Tazo. I love this photo so much!

Barbra

He's a persistent little guy! #suckling #lovekitten #Boom-Boom

Barbra

Toe beans! #Boom-Boom

Barbra

If there's anything worrying you, I hope this short video brings you some peace of mind. #ItsGoingToBeOK

Barbra

Now to find an electrical outlet they cannot reach! #challengeaccepted

Barbra

This is Boom-Boom's comfort time. Can you hear his happy purr? Not to mention his little #nursing sounds ๐Ÿฑ

Barbra

Aw mom, please don't post that photo. I look like a baby. I'm a big boy, not a baby! #JeanBeliveau #hockeyKittens

Barbra

Yes your Honor, I plead guilty to the charge of jiggling my leg so my sleeping kitten would open his eyes and look into the camera. #badfostermom #anythingforthevideo

Barbra

His "you woke me up" face. #JeanBeliveau

Barbra

All was going well until Yvan Cornyoyer entered the frame with an ear-bomb ๐Ÿ˜‚

Barbra

Notice how they perk up when I mention cleaning their room. Go figure! #tidy #bigyawn #FosterKittenDiaryMorning #HockeyKittens
