Cotton and County Kittens

Hey, Cotton here. Excuse me for talking with my mouth full but watching today's video made me hungry. Oh, for the day when I had that much energy. But I'll be turning 13 next month so I get hungry just watching those calories get burned.

Since a Petsense store opened locally last year, a number of cats have been adopted from there. It helps that their store is in the Wal-mart shopping center.It's easier for folks to pop in to see what cats are available while they are there shopping than to drive way out in the county. So this seems to be working well for both the store and the county shelter - and especially for the cats.

While Jan was there today, she stopped in and shot this very short video of three kittens playing. There should be four kittens but one climbed out several times and had to be returned to a cage. There are adult cats there too. And more at the shelter, along with a variety of dogs and puppies. So Jan thought she would practice making a video, something she hasn't tried in a long time, and put this together.  It's very plain, no frills, so don't expect violins and dancing bears.

If the video doesn't play, click here.


  1. Annything that helps shelter kitties get adopted sounds good ta us!

  2. this is a great video - the kitties are so cute that I'm sure they will get adopted!

    Many pet lovers struggle with finances. Many people are looking for a home business so they can work at home.
    At we are looking to create a sizeable monthly income to help with our cat colony. There is a waiting list.
    4 short videos tell the story

  3. Always great post here, I spread the news for you.

  4. Beautiful baby kitties!


  5. Those little ones sure are cutie-pies!!!

  6. Cotton, we totally understand ... when you gotta eat, you gotta eat! We think Jan did a great job with that video. We hope and pray it will get lots of people to want to visit -- and adopt -- those sweet kitties. :)

  7. Great video, Jan. We thought that kitty on top was practicing hypnotizing the one in the middle:)

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  8. I wish all those kitties will be adopted soon!
    Good job with the video!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Interesting way to promote adoption of shelter kitties.

    Hope they all find loving responsible families really soon - even though they ARE cats! Grrr! Woof!! [strains at lead] - Sorry.

    The Lady Of The House is off to feed Mickey-Cat now. He's 20 and can still eat for England.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  10. I love the video. I hope it helps getting those adorable kittens adopted.

  11. Oh mum was making funny aww noises watching the video and said the top kitten so reminded her of me when I was that age which is oodles ago.l hope the darlings get adopted soon and the adults too.. Hugs GJ xx

  12. Oh they are so cute! We love that Jan made the video of them - and it is very much like our moms - her videos are no frills too (she doesn't even take out her insane babbling in the background).

    And Kirzon and Lola are both with you on the "hungry just watching it" thing - they feel the same way at home too!

  13. We didn't know Wrinkles either, but it was posted previously that he was sick, and when I went over to check it said he had passed.

  14. Awwww!! Me and Charlie think this clip is adorable! Well done Jan!! What gorgeous kitties - awwwww I so want them!

    Enjoy your yummy noms, Cotton! Take care
