Friday Haiku: New Kit on the Blog

Teenthee tiny kit

Barely even a handful

But just give it time

One week old Russian Blue Kitten, by Sensual Shadows Photography



  1. Ears at nine and three?
    Plinks? Sleppy beepable blue nose? Check!
    Engage headtilt! Awww.

  2. Dang! Remove ‘sleppy’!
    Plinks? Beepable blue nose? Check!
    Early morning fail.

  3. Looks like a koala!

  4. ‘Sleppy’ is good … I often feel ‘sleppy’. I also like the teeny tiny scratch on the human holding hand – more of the same to come I suspect.

  5. Tho’ velvet soft I am
    I am kitteh, hear me roar
    Your hands shall bear my mark!

  6. A kitteh molecule! Elementary unit of cuteness, so teeny…precious.

  7. Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur…

    (“Big Bang Theory” reruns have eaten my brain. Sorry.)

  8. Oh WHY do you do this to me?! I just lost my Russian Blue last week and now you confront me with this little morsel of Russian Blue cuteness. *tries to consider that maybe Legolas enjoyed his Russian Blue-ness so much that he chose to be reincarnated as one again*

  9. Oh my. So teeny. So sleepy and trusting. So blue the baby nose. Even the cosmos must be holding its breath in wonder…

  10. Kit or koala?
    Warm meelks or eucalyptus?
    Eh, who cares? It’s cute.

  11. And i will put the kitten in my bra and snuggle it all day. Gosh, what a cutie pie. Love the ears at 9 and 3. All the easier to kiss that little forehead.

  12. Nothin’ wrong with that!

  13. Kitteh so pretteh
    Love the purple nail polish
    I can haz cuddles

  14. Yea verily. 😀

  15. puuurrrrpeeelllllll nosicles!!!!!!!!!

  16. I’m so sorry, Jennifer.

  17. You guys owe me a gazillion dollars in computer screen cleaner because you keep posting kitten so unbelievably cute that one can not resist trying to pet and kiss them resulting in lipstick and finger marks all over the screen!
    PLEASE don’t ever stop!

  18. Oh, I have no doubt he’ll be a ‘handful’ all right…

  19. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Lately, the posts have been excruciatingly cute. I don’t usually eee.

  20. A tender mowthful of cute, disarming me with his invitation to snorgle… Curse the cold, hard, computer screen that separates us!

  21. The ears are practically (practicatilly?) at 8 and 4! Below the eyes! Amazingks!

  22. The Haiku is back?
    Have not been here in a while.
    This is great, yay!

  23. Robin Kiesel says:

    Tiny ball of fluff
    Softer than a mother’s kiss
    Promises of fun

  24. Not “yay” but “hooray”
    Would have made post a haiku
    I’m out of practice

  25. Leetle gray kitteh
    Roundular cute floofy ball.
    I am very DED.

  26. Blueberry nose.

  27. Purrrfect kitteh molecule.

    (teensy) *beep*

  28. I’m so sorry for your loss, Jennifer. RIP, little Legolas.


  30. Well done, Madame X! Though you cannot see me, I am giving you a round of applause.

  31. Miracles from molecules are dawning every day, discoveries for happiness in a fab-u-lous array!

  32. What Gigi said.

  33. Koala face!!

  34. tiny kitten head
    just the perfect size for snack
    pop it in my mouth

  35. That’s not what I would expect from a source calling itself Sensual Shadows Photography. I suspect this is the cutest thing they’ve ever shot!

  36. Hey Meg & Gang,
    You guys are “keeling” me !!! I have 7 “kids” in a four bdrm. house & you STILL make me want more ! So I’m going to go away until I don’t want every single kitten you show us………….

    O.k, I’m back , I just couldn’t stay away any longer . The absence from you all was HORRIBLE ! I think I need to go to the mod lounge for a restorative beverage !

  37. Smooshy-face kitten.
    I can almost hear honk-shus.
    Will beep nose softly.

  38. Teenthee tiny kit barely even a mouthful!

  39. Yay!

  40. Robin Kiesel says:

    Is it too early for Margaritas?

  41. Robin Kiesel says:

    Sorry for your sorrow 😦

  42. Perfect!

  43. Mary (the first) says:

    Perhaps the CO has finally penetrated to the point that your “eee level” is more in line with the rest of the CO peeps?

  44. Mary (the first) says:

    Never too early for Margaritas.

  45. Mary (the first) says:

    No way to feel blue
    Looking at this sweet blue face.
    Better yet, smooch it.

  46. Robin Kiesel says:

    okay! freshly made salsa and chips anyone?

  47. I espouse the philosophy of the Duke of Windsor, who declared ten o’clock in the morning martini time.

  48. It’s always 5 O’Clock on the bunny clock!

  49. Open your eyes, furball.
    Someday those nubbular ears
    Will come together.

  50. What a wee cutie
    Looks like my Maggie baby
    Rhapsody in blue

  51. I’m glad someone thinks so! 🙂

  52. So sorry for your loss, Jennifer.

    I like the way you think, though.

  53. I’ve always thought that what human babies need is a nice soft coat of fur.
    In fact, Adam and Eve probably had nice blue coats like this and that’s why they didn’t know they were naked.

  54. Karma's Mom says:

    Russians are the best. We had one for 16 years. I hope this one grows up to be as loveable as our Anton P. Chekhov. We still miss him.

  55. Kitten’s the same size
    As the gift my cat just left
    Outside on the steps

  56. What Berg said . . . . .

  57. emmberrann says:

    Eyes not open yet.
    Ears at closed angle, too.
    Potential catness.

  58. I just came from a meeting at the shelter where I volunteer. We’ll be opening the kitten nursery soon and this little one completely put me in the mood. Horray for kittens!

  59. Purple finger nail
    Distracting from the baby
    kitteh in the hand.

  60. kibblenibble says:

    Jennifer, I’m sorry. I hope another fur-companion finds its way to you soon.

  61. 😥 I am so sorry for the loss of your dear sweet Legolas, Jennifer M. Black 😥 I do hope and pray that Legolas will come back to you as a Russian Blue kitty.

  62. Tell me about it, Biana D 😦 I nearly busted my nose trying to kiss that cute little kitty through my monitor 😦

  63. AWW 😥 I am so sorry for the loss of your dear sweet Anton P. Chekhov, Karma’s Mom 😥

  64. snorglepup says:

    This made me check twice after the giant squirrlie head with eyes where ears should be. Everything’s in order here. Snorgle on…

  65. Incipient dis
    approval face yet so cute
    will weigh 20 pounds

  66. Hmm,

    Cold hard technology,
    That which brings us together,
    Ultimately keeps us apart.

  67. Susie-Qute says:
