Caturday: We Are Not Worthy

What’s that Little One? Good news you say? Do tell.

You declare Caturday to be a day of rest. Oh you are too kind!

It will be an honor to rest on Caturday. We promise to do our best to follow your command!

Two week old Marbles  is Karen M.’s foster kitten through the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS).
Karen says, “Every time she looks at me with those big eyes I’m reminded why I volunteered to care for her.”



  1. Is that a teensy peek of peenk tung sticking out in the first photo? *ded*

  2. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    So glad you’re fostering. I fostered two two-week old kittens whose mom and sibling had been killed for two months until one got adopted. I failed with one–he’s with me today. Enjoy.

    BARCS does great things with pitties, too.

  3. I thought I saw a tiny tongue too!

  4. buffy summers says:

    it is soo worth it!

  5. Marbles is an adorable name! Such a sweet pink little cutie.

  6. Ruffian9 says:

    I look at pictures like this and I’m reminded that I actually DO have a ‘mothering’ instinct. So wee. So vulnerable. Sigh.

  7. Jimbeaux says:

    It’s my birfday, so I declare it a day for rest and kitties for everyone! (Disclaimer, my apartment allows no pets, so I have no kitty of my own. Sad.)

  8. My rescue pulled a mama and kittens from BARCs a couple of weeks ago and I am fostering them until they can be fixed and put up for adoption. Check out this ridiculousness:!/photo.php?fbid=10150904656293106&set=a.10150904653913106.415476.307000593105&type=3&theater BARCS does great work, but there are always more animals than fosters. If you’ve ever thought about fostering, there’s no time like the present, and it’s very rewarding!

  9. Natalie says:

    Ahhh – I thought I was just imagining things. It was!

  10. roastpotato says:

    Karen M you are a star and a lucky lady, I hope it’s not too horrible when you have to hand this little one over!

  11. Adorable little morsel.. I want to put her in my pocket! 🙂

  12. WARNING: this image will keel you.

  13. Fird Birfle says:

    MEIN GOTT Sharpy is surely RIGHT about that.

    Not Just Truly Dead but really Most
    Sinceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerely Dead

  14. It’s like “extreme napping!!” Trying to attain the most outrageous position, while simultaneously maintaining one’s modesty and getting a nice rest.

  15. Clairdelune says:

    It did keel me. I expired. Ded.

  16. Rachael says:

    Those ear nubbins look so delectable!

    Karen M and the rest of you fosterers are rock stars! *wild applause*

    Happy birthday!

  20. Karen M. you are a better person than me. They would have to pry that kitteh out of my cold, dead hands because I would never be able to give it up.

  21. i_wuvs_puttins says:

    Aww, bless! Those little eyes in the first pic seem to be saying, “you really do wuvs me!” The second one says “I’m in my happy place.”

  22. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    What a sweet baby, and YAY for fostering!

  23. victoreia says:

    Day of rest? Hearing and obeying, tiny feline overlord!

  24. You’re right. That kind of heart warmingness needs a warning label.

  25. And I for one welcome our new furry overlord.

  26. Fird Birfle says:


    so that means that you need to live an EXTRA life, in order to be caught-up!!!!

  30. Lauren in Georgia says:

    Its my birthday too, and i, fortunately, spent it surrounded by family, friends (and more 4 legged) friends! but no cute little bites like this!

  31. Same here, kitkatCC 😀

  32. Happy Birthday, Jimbeaux 😀 (If you can, try to move to a place where you CAN have kitties :D)

  33. I second that, Nikki 😀

  34. If I ever found a sweet little kitty like Marbles here, I would adopt her on the spot 😀

  35. loribelle says:

    I think this kitty is named Marbles because everyone loses theirs when they see her.

  36. i warned you!
