Solemates Graduation!

Greetings, Kitten Academicians!

The Solemates are all getting near to graduation! Hushpuppy had his graduation ceremony at the vet on Friday the 19th and the rest of the kids will have theirs on the 3rd. Lace is a special case - we’re waiting on some further tests to make sure she’s super healthy before we (re)schedule hers.

Although we haven’t yet scheduled pick-up dates with any of the adopters, all the Solemates — including Lace — now have confirmed adopters! Also, Hubbub and Rumpus of the Tantrums also have confirmed adopters! We’re kind of hoping someone adopts three generations of girls, Teacup, Tempest, and Kerfuffle, all together - but more on that later!







And here’s all the photos from the photoshoot! Apologies that we messed up the focus/aperture on the group photos.

One Month of Tantrums!

Greetings, Kitten Academicians!

Today the Tantrums are one month old - and they’re growing like crazy! We finally gave them collars so that we can tell them apart. Well, DJ has always been able to tell but Mr. A not so much. The collars should make it easier for everyone!

Before we get on with the photos, a couple quick news items to cover:

  • On Angels’ Wings and Conscious Cup are running another fundraiser. We’re not directly involved this time, but they are bringing back the Kitten Academy “Just Bean Adopted” blend, so if you missed it before, now’s your chance - it’s back for a limited time only! As before, the proceeds go to On Angels’ Wings.

  • Tomorrow, Friday the 19th, Lace and Hushpuppy will be going to the vet for their graduation surgeries!

  • Oxford, Hushpuppy and Sneaker have approved adopters - more on that later!

  • We’ve done a graduation photoshoot for the Solemates, which will be coming in another blogpost in the next few days!

  • Our move to Connecticut is tentatively scheduled for the end of May/start of June. More on that later as well!

Here’s all the Tantrum photoshoot photos!

Welcome to Tempest's Tantrums!

Greetings, Kitten Academicians!

Last Thursday, the 21st, Tempest delivered her three adorable orange kittens. Mr. A was out of town, looking for a new home for the Academy in Connecticut, so DJ handled the midwifery all on her own. Of course she did a great job, and so did Tempest!

Since then, the three kittens have been growing at an incredible rate! Both Tempest and Teacup have been caring for them. While only Tempest is able to feed them, Teacup gives them plenty of cleanings and snuggles. And she does the same for Tempest! The love between these two cats is incredible and rest assured we’ll do all we can to get them adopted together!

On that note, we have a wonderful T-shirt in our Teespring store that has art of Tempest and Teacup together, by the fabulous Joanna Crook. If you can’t adopt them, you can at least adopt the T-shirt!

Because it can be difficult to tell the three kittens apart, we’re providing a separate album for each below.


Hubbub - Male

Rumpus - Male

Kerfuffle - Female

Tempest - Mom - Torbie. Teacup - Co-mom - Calico.
