These aren't the same tiny kitty ones I promised, but any kitty photos are cute kitty photos!!!

These ones were taken of the farm kittens that are up near my dad's place in Maine. These ones are only about 3 weeks or so old, and there were 11 of them!

My dad has a crate that he keeps them all in when they are at the farm this way they can't get lost and the other cats can't get in. It has a top that closes and screened in sides so that they can see out and everything, and the mamas can get in.

For being little kitties, they were SO LOUD! Especially when they are all competing with each other for attention. When we first went over and opened the crate up they were all piled on top of each other sleeping and we could only see about half of them since the rest were buried underneath.

In this picture you can see how little they really are. I held my hands out and one kitten fit nicely in my palms.

This little black and white ones was one of my favorites! He fell asleep right there in my hands and I just wanted to take him home with me.

I'll try to post some more pictures soon! but since my sis is the one that took them, I have to wait until she posts some more.

Enjoy everyone! I hope this little guys make you smile, because I know they make me smile!



  1. They are absolutely adorable, so soft and cuddly:):)

  2. OMG they are so cute!!!!! I just want to scoop them all up in my arms and hug them. Awwwww

  3. Ah, I hope they'll be OK. They're so cute. Take them to the Vet.

  4. I wanted to take them all home with me! But, alas, I already have two kitties of my own and one huge dog.

    Linda - these ones are taken care of by my dad and the farm owner, so I can't take them, nor could I afford to.

    Once they are old enough, they are all adopted out for free from the farm. So far in the 5 years that my dad has been up there he has saved over 50 kittens from the farm. Some had to be put down because they were just too sick and my dad couldn't afford to get all of them proper health care. He does what he can for the rest of them. Where he lives in Maine there really isn't a large Humane Society network or anything like that, so it's up to whoever is around to make the decisions.

    It's hard to keep up with them because every time my dad clears the cats out, someone will come back and drop more kittens off. I don't understand why people think that it's ok to just drop cats and kittens off at farms. That is someone's private property and you are dumping unprotected animals there where they can do more damage to the animals that are already there. But, I guess it beats dumping them in the trash like others do. At least there are people there to find them.

    All of these kitties will surely find loving homes. My dad is very particular about who he lets take the cats. I tell him he should start up a non profit and then at least he could take donations to give them proper vet treatment and he could have some legal accountability with the people he adopts the cats out to.

  5. Where do you live lilly, because if it's anywhere near Maine they are free for the taking!
