Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Howdy to you! 🐈

Yesterday, just for fun, we took two of the kittens to go visit Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Peggy. They had a great adventure and served as the court jesters at my parents’ house.

I snuck the orange kitten onto my mom’s bed while she napped. Curious as all kittens, he poked around and started to nose her bare leg. Then he let out a pitiful meow. That woke Mom up, and she broke out into a huge grin at seeing that fluffy puff coming her way.

The kittens were wary at first, cried, then took a nap. Later on, the fun came out. They liked the spring toys my mom’s cats love. Soon they wrestled and romped around, making us all laugh.

That’s just a little glimpse into our life. A fun little peek into a day in the life with kittens.

So…tell me what’s up in your neck of the woods. Anything fun or interesting?

Let’s try to see those two kittens. Maybe next time we will take a couple more!


Oh–if anyone wants to find a fun cat toy, for some reason those funny little springs make the cats go crazy! They have a great time, and my mom’s cat retrieves them if we throw them. You can click the above image to go to Amazon to see larger packages.

Have a great week!
