It's a good thing they're cute!

Cause sometimes they can be very bad.

Like when Carrot and Peppercorn (mostly Peppercorn, he started it) found alternate uses for a bag of litter.
As if they don't have a gazillion other toys they could play with.


Then there's the matter of my Yucca tree.
Apparently Carrot finds it quite tasty.


Peppercorn thinks it's fun to climb.


And perch in.


The Bonsai Money Tree hasn't escaped unscathed either.


After he's done being bad, Peppercorn likes to hide out in his "secret" spot on top of the barstools
(which he's not supposed to go on because his pointy bits clash with their price tag).




Don't let her angelic face fool you, Cinnamon Girl can also be very naughty.
Here she is trying to bust through the room divider to go visit her boyfriend (Aztec).

And the reason they get away with being so bad. They're just so darn adorable!

















Can't forget Aztec, the best behaved of the bunch.

OMG SCM I am in kitty heaven :l ovestruck:. They are just precious and ummmm, do I see two Bunduks in the making . Maybe they should have more access to Aztec so he can show them how a "good" kitty is suppose to act . Of course what I am seeing is just normal kitty behaviour

Oh I agree with L4,absolute kitty-heaven
They are little troublemakers for sure,but awww so adorable.
I too have a Big Yucca-tree but my cats don't bother with it at all,then again,they are not kittens...

Those bar-stools do look very expensive and nice...bad kitty
and then there is beautiful Aztec

Oh wow, they look fabulous! The babies all grown up. And momma looks wonderful too. Aztec is one lucky kitty to have such a cute girlfriend.

In their "natural" habitat these tree destroying, trunk climbing, leaf chewing, furniture digging monsters would be doing what comes naturally. Well, except for the furniture digging. That isn't available in the wild. I am so happy to see they helped themselves to the litter instead of waiting for their human to spread it out for them. I see nothing unusual.

That's actually what I'm thinking too. In fact, once they've completely decimated this one, I may have to go get another one for their amusement. Considering the hours of entertainment they've had at the poor Yucca's expense, I certainly got my money's worth. (the barstools, not so much)

I keep telling him that, especially at his age. He merely finds her tolerable at best.
But boy does she love hanging out with him! Probably because he's considerably mellower than the 2 orange whirling dervishes (and less likely to pounce on you from behind when you least expect it).

SCM...those pics are beautiful!! I love the pic of the kitty litter. My crew use to destroy the cardboard box and plastic liner that theirs comes in and then throw the litter all over...without the box even being opedn...They did it thru the handle holes.

You know, SCM, you could always have a hole dug in the middle of your house and plant a tree for them

WOW!!!!! WOW!!!!! WOW!!!!!!

Just curious if you are a professional photographer, because those pictures are absolutely B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!!! I am in awe on how well you've captured their beauty and personality. This is the first time I have viewed your pictures and it surely won't be the last. If you don't mind me asking, but what kind of camera do you use?

Your cats are so darn adorable. I loved each and every one of them.

Yup, as chico2 said, Carrot, Peppercorn, and Cinnamon Girl (aka Momma, Momma-san, Mumsy, or Pom-Pom Face) have been officially adopted by moi. 2 other kittens (the torbie girl, Bijoux, and the long-haired orange guy, Buzz Fuzzler) were adopted by some good friends of mine, so I get to see them regularly. The other polydactyl kitten, Paneer, was adopted by a long-time MEOW employee and foster home (she specializes in bottle-feeding orphan kittens ). So a very happy ending for everyone. Except the Yucca tree.

Thanks! Not currently a "pro", but I did actually get a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in photography. Which is why I currently work in the oil and gas industry .

Ha ha, right now just a wee point-n-shoot Canon Powershot A640 (which technically belongs to my hubby). The more important thing is that I happen to get good light in my sunny little house .

I loved all the pics ....each and every one of them.

Just be thankful they only got into the cat litter bag .....when my two were younger they got into the pantry and checked out the flour, rolled oats, rice and icing sugar bags.
