As promised HOUSE OF NIGHT KITTENS!




So out here at Rancho Cast we've had coyote/owl issues. Tragically I've lost three out of five cats, one the mighty Patchy Poo the Pud who was fifteen glorious years old and my favorite cat in the universe. I hope he gets tired of frolicking with the Goddess and decides to return reborn to terrorize Kristin for another fifteen years!

Speaking of Patchy Poo the Pud being reborn: not long ago a very sweet cat showed up at the ranch, which is not unusual because of ignorant folks dumping their pets in the country. Ugh. Anyway, I adopted her and, of course, she was pregnant. (Yes, I'm a responsible pet owner and she will be spayed ASAP.) Her kittens were born about three weeks ago. I'm going to give them all House of Night names - well, the ones I keep anyway. I have several friends who keep "dropping by" to "see me" but who really are scoping out which kittens they're going to stick in purses and pockets...

Here's the litter! With mom shortly after they were born, and today. Adorable!

XXXOOO

p.s. Reminder: be a responsible pet owner. Spay or neuter your animals!

These kittens are soo cute! I've always wanted a orange and white kitten! I have a 8 month old kitten named Socks and I love him, but hes not orange and white oh well. Maybe one day I'll get him a friend. I agree, people who have pets should take proper care of them and spay and neuter them! People shouldn't leave their pets randomly either. Who can even do that? I couldn't. Soo, I just started reading Divine by Mistake and I'm like on page 130 or something but I'm already in love with the book. It's hilarious! I love the humorous side of Shannon! Anyway, Happy writing!

Anymore Divine books after Divine Beginnings??

Super cuteness!

Christina - yep, Elphame's Choice and Brighid's Quest are both set in Partholon. Shannon (and the events of Divine by Mistake, Choice, and Blood) are in the past. Elphame is a relative of Shannon's. Enjoy!

Hi PC,

I'm so sorry for your loss, because I know how much animals enlighten our everyday life. My big kitty Carmilla is everything to me.

I have a question: I'm french, so I don't exactly understand the meaning of "Patchy Poo the Pud" (I understand Patchy, but the not the whole name).

Naming the kittens after your House of night series: cool!!
I agree with ChristinaCarol: Shannon is such a great character!

And yes, people must be responsible, and have their cats neutered, all around the world

PC Cast said...

Bonjour Geraldine! That's a good question. Poo is just a pet name and doesn't really mean anything, like "kissy poo." Pud is short kind of an American slang term for cat.

Glad you like Shannon. I love the Partholon books!

XXXOOO

Thanks for answering: it will improve my vocabulary!!
And yes, I love Shannon (and Clan Fintan!!). Now I will begin your House of Night series, I just bought the first four books!

Hi P.C.!
I know you posted this blog last month, but my question has to do with a cat in HoN, so I thought this particular blog would be the perfect place to ask. I just finished Hunted and in it, a cat named Guinevere was briefly mentioned. Did you get that name from the song "Guinevere" by Eli Young Band? I know that's a random question, but I had never heard the name until I heard that song. I'm loving the HoN series!

PC Cast said...

Megan - Guinevere is named after King Arthur's queen.

fallinghearts said...

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW THEY'RE SOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!! i think that's really cute how you're going to give them HON names :) that would be really cool if a cat in the books had a litter too (nudge nudge wink wink) <3
