Catherine says: I began fostering kittens and cats in late 2007 after the death of my beloved Smoggy, and in his honor. After a full first year of fostering, I wasn't sure how soon my services would be needed, but I need not have worried as I got a call on January 1, 2009. Actually, it seems it will be a long time before there is any kind of control over the numbers of kittens that are being born.

Anyhow, I went and picked up three little street kitties. We named them Cookie, Willow, and Digby (the only boy). We think they had it a bit rough out there as they were pretty dirty… but the funniest thing is that we gave each of them a bath and they didn't seem to mind it all -- almost like they were familiar with being bathed -- and they each enjoyed the blowdryer session. They were all very happy little souls and very, very purry. The ideal kittens. :D All three were adopted into loving homes by the second week of February 2009.

I aver Kephara's statement. It is twice spoken that Kittens are the Cutest among Creation.

Anyone who objects must speak now or forever hold their peace. And if you speak your objection now, prepare to be routed by the incontrovertible cuteness of kittens.

As the Latin saying goes, "semper felis adorabilis".

So worthwhile, Catherine. Poor Digby seemed the weakest of the bunch here--you fixed him up beautifully. Blowdryer and all!

I would adopt these three babies in a nanosecond!! What a wonderful lady to do this. Love all the names, too. Poor Digby is the goofiest and scrappiest of the three, but I'd snatch him up with his sisters and am certain he will grow into a wonderful cat and already has the purest of sweet little souls. I have a good friend looking to adopt a pair of sibling kittens, and his roommate wants to add a kitten, too, so wish these were in the Houston area!!!

Gosh, I love the markings on these two sweetie pies. The more flecks of color, the better! Sounds like Catherine has a wonderful, cat-centric life. God bless her!

What sweeties, I love the markings on the two girls and the final photo of Digby looks a lot like my Shelby.
As far as I'm concerned, if you aren't moved to gushiness over kittens, then there's something wrong with you!

I couldn't decide which was the cutest, so voted for all three. Thenk you, Catherine for caring for all these kitties in Smoggy's name. It's a wonderful tribute to a much loved cat.

Dear, beautiful little kitties. I love them all, but I think I'd take Digby home - he is so tiny and looks a little bit sad.
