Chili's Beans Graduation!

Howdy, Kitten Academy Readers!

All of the kittens currently at the Academy are rapidly approaching Graduation - this would have been a mixed graduation announcement, except we only have photos of Chili's Beans so far!

In fact, today Pinto and Mister Pickles both went to On Angels' Wings in Crystal Lake, where they will be picked up by their adopters!  

Pinto didn't turn up to the graduation photo session, so we've used one of his older photos below.  We'll have updates from his adopter soon enough!  His adopter is also adopting Coriander, but Cori needs to get over his URI before he's ready to fly across the country - so he'll be staying at the Academy, and catching up with Pinto a little later.

Here's the schedule so far:

  • Pinto - August 24 at OAW
  • Mister Pickles - August 24 at OAW
  • Cayenne - August 26
  • Chili - August 26
  • Roux - September 2
  • Garbanzo - September 3 
  • Coriander - September 9 (will be joining Pinto!)

In addition, we have approved adopters for Kidney + Tomato (together!) and Croquembouche + Eclair (together!), but we haven't set dates for them to be picked up yet!

So far, On Angels' Wings has not informed us of approved adopters for any of The Purrsians (Hummus, Babaghanoush, Tahini, or Falafel).

...And Mister Pickles!

As usual, here's a gallery of the extra photos from the session!


Here's a big photodump of photos that haven't been previously released.  Because we all need a little distraction.

If you're looking for the cheat-sheet for the five new kittens that arrived today - that'll be coming soon!

Welcome Chili's Beans!

Greetings, Kitten Academicians! 

Our newest family, Chili and her kittens, arrived at Kitten Academy quite unexpectedly on Saturday the 29th of July.  We had gone to On Angels' Wings to drop off some medication, and ended up coming home with six kittens and a momcat!  

Chili is coincidentally from the same shelter in Ohio that Roux came from!  To make things more special, three of her kittens are polydactyl -- that means they have more than the usual number of toes for a cat.  (The usual is four!  [Ed: or five if you count the dewclaw, which we don't!])

We guesstimate that Chili is about a year old, and her kittens are about five or six weeks old.

Chili has already had the opportunity to meet the Faculty - including Elsie - and gets along just great with all of them; so she's likely to be a wonderful choice for someone to adopt who already has cats, or even dogs.

We'd like to bring Chili and her kittens together with Roux and her kittens, but that's a difficult plan to accomplish safely, so we'll be taking our time about it!

If you're looking for news about the new kitten room or the alumni or Roux's Choux, stay tuned - that'll be in a future Mewspaper!
