Mitten Monday


Over the weekend, mom and dad were looking at video from when I first arrived.  It showed me and my momma Ellie on our 2nd day in our new home.  We were playing and stuff and I was so small I hardly recognized myself.  Whoa I was cute!  Mom is going to try and figure out a way to edit down the hour long video so all of my furriends can see it too.

One thing that was funny is that dad was talking on the video about not knowing who my momma was and that Ellie "adopted" me.  See, when we were found and brought into foster care, there were 6 of us kittens.  4 kittens a couple of weeks older than me, and then me and my brother.  The rescuers assumed the 4 older kittens were my mom's and us younger tots probably belonged to another momma who did not survive.  My momma Ellie is a hero no matter what.  But when it turned out that once my momma Ellie and I were adopted together, I ended up nursing until I was almost 5 months old.   That and the fact that my momma Ellie and I look exactly alike except for fur color.  Mom said it's obvious Ellie is my one and true mom and she is a saint for nursing those other 4 kits.  We purr every day that their lives are as happy and loving as our own. 
So I'm showing my choppers to tell you how I feel about what daddy said almost 5 years ago. 

Pee Ess...my furriends wanted to know why it's Mitten Monday when there are no mittens in the photo.

I'm the Mitten!  That's what mom and dad call me all the time.

Oh you are a little Mitten. Sometimes we still call Gemini that--she is our Mitten Kitten.

Aw! Mitten!

MoMo said...

Of course I know you're Mitten. It must have been in some previous posts that that was your name.

Interesting about mom Ellie looking after the other kittens that were older than her own.

Ellie is a great mother to have taken care of so many kittens that weren't hers! I would love to see that video - I hope your human figures out a way to edit it.

We're guessing yoor name is 'cos yoo were mitten the kitten! Ellie was and is a wonderful cat ~ we love her kindness.
We can't wait to see yoor video!

Barb said...

Cory, you are such a sweetie, as is your momma Ellie. But since you love singing with socks, I wonder why your nickname is Mitten.

It seems to me that I recall using Picasa to pull out only parts of a video. You can break in up into multiple shorter videos.

Miss Ellie sure is a magnificent Mama. She was an inspiration and role model to our Stella Belle, who also adopted a litter of older kittens :)

Smooches to you and your mama, Mitten :)

Cory/Mitten, we think it's so sweet that you and Ellie are together...she is such a good mom to you.

Simba said...

Cory, Mitten is a great nickname! Your Momma Ellie is a true cat hero. What a special thing she did for the kittens without a Momma.

The Monkeys said...

Your mama Ellie is definitely your Mom, Cory! We can so see the resemblance!

Katnip Lounge said...

Cory, Mommy had an all black kitty that was papa to our Kona! So we know that Mama Ellie is your one true Mom. Fur color is fun like that.

We like your nickname!

Cat said...

Cory your mum was wonderful to look after so many kittens!!! I'm glad you found a safe and loving home together :-)

Eric and Flynn said...

Your mum was a hero for looking after all you kittens so well. We like your Mitten name.

Junior and Orion said...

What a lovely story, Cory, and Mitten is such a sweet little knickname for you!

Your mama Ellie is a real heroine for what she did. No wonder you look up to her so much.

Ellie was very kind to nurse kittens that were not hers. You are a lovely Mitten Kitten Cory.

Mariodacat said...

Hi Mitten. You certainly are a cutie. You also has a very interesting story. So happy you have a forever home now.

Au and Target said...
