Princess Leia decides to try cat food for the first time.  Sitting in the middle of the dish seems quite appropriate for a princess.
Who is this creature joining me at the breakfast table and why did my mother and my aunt leave?
Hey, that big red one isn't very nice.  I'm outta here.
The little princess decides to watch from a safe place.
This is a fun kitten adventure, but sadly not all the adventures are as sweet.  David had the kittens well hidden in the chicken house and after I accidentally set the box on one of the kittens, she decided to move them again.  My next tragic mistake was to back over one of the kittens. David and Olive have kept the babies well hidden since then until this debut of Princess Leia showing up for a meal.  I am not sure at this time how many of the kittens are left.  Looks like I am turning out to be their worst predator:(

Oh dear! I bet you feel terrible about that. It's a dangerous life out there.:-(
But the little princess is a savvy little doll & I hope she makes it. Think you'll keep her?

It looks like that in spite of all the dangers of a kitty's life this little princess has a good chance of growing up to be queen of her kingdom (queendom?).

Kittens are so adorable and Princess Leia looks like she's got a good handle on things!

It's a hard knocks life for them - with you around.

Stop that!!

Princess Leia will probably go to a new home in Broken Arrow. I am sure that Luke Skywalker is okay as is Han and Chewy. They are David's children. The ones in trouble are the newest ones that Olive had.

It might be hard to let her go if the people in Broken Arrow want her. I guess that is if she is a she. I'm not sure yet.

I am hoping some others will come for breakfast soon so I can get a count on how many are okay.

No kidding. I better find homes for them. I am going to have Olive and David fixed as soon as I can catch them. Olive will be easy but David is very, very elusive.

Heart-hurting stuff. Which must have been very hard for you.
And a very cute kitten.

Little Leia is a treasure. I'm sorry to hear about the mishap. That must be a bitter pill. But I'm sure that on the balance the kitties are better off for having you around.

Lee said...

That is just gorgeous...and it brings a wide smile to my face this Saturday morning. :)

That kitten is so cute!

Aunt Betsy said...

Cute, Cute kitten! I am sorry to hear about the accident ... must have broken your heart. Hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day.

I try not to get too attached to the critters around here, but it is never easy to lose one. It was very cute the way Leia escaped then peeked out of her hiding spot.

Sparkling Red
I can only hope there is a kitty heaven:)

So happy to bring you a smile. I had one too watching the tableau unfold. Such a silly kitten and such pushy chickens:)

Olga Hebert
Isn't she cute! I saw three of her siblings last night and feel hope for others.

Aunt Betsy
Hope you will have a wonderful Mother's Day too. Our surrounding storms will keep my children from visiting. I will feel better knowing they are not trying to get here because the best gift they can give me is their safety.

Such cute pictures...sorry for the accidents, know you must have felt terrible.

gigihawaii said...

Gee, that's too bad. Hopefully, there will be a happy outcome.

Winifred said...

She is gorgeous. I bet you feel terrible about the poor kitties. Never mind I hope the princess lives to a good age! My last two were nearly 22 years old when I lost them.

Riot Kitty said...

Awww! So sweet! We have adopted adult kitties for a long time...I don't remember the last time I had a small kitten. They look so fragile.

Arkansas Patti said...

It is just awful when we inadvertently hurt those we are trying to protect. She is adorable and that was a cute picture story.

Tabor said...

I remember how our farm cats would have a litter of kittens, but by fall most would be gone. I now wonder if they befell natural and unnatural accidents?

Ileana said...

Adorable pics and I'm sorry to hear the bad news, but it's great you found a home for the Princess. Happy Mother's Day to you, my friend!

Lynn said...

I think that is a sign you need to keep Princess Leia. Adorable.

Kay said...

Yikes! I'm sorry. That must have felt dreadful, but these things do happen. This kitten is so adorable.

Cute pics! Sorry about the accidents- Maybe use a flashlight?
