Kitten update & pumpkin carving...

Just thought I would let everyone know how our kitten, Pumpkin - Jasper - Toots, is doing. I can't believe how big he's gotten! He's been dewormed but still has some really stinky toots. He also still gets called several names. I've been letting him come outside with me and the other cats but he's so excited and adventurous, it's hard to get a proper photo.

Most look like this...



I was lucky enough to get a few nice pictures today...




And Meemee and Zazu are finally starting to make nice with the little guy. Poor thing just wants to play with them all the time!

In other/weird news. Last week I had an LA PR firm hire me to carve pumpkins in Bucks County this weekend for the DVD release of Ice Age 3. I still won't believe it until it happens, it seems like such an odd thing to be doing. Part of the deal is that I have to carve a large pumpkin the day before with a picture from the movie. That will be hard but I think I can pull it off. I bought a pumpkin this weekend and it's probably close to 100 pounds. If anyone is in the area on Saturday and Sunday, I will be at Winding Brook Farm in Warrington, PA. Looks like a nice place. I'm bringing my mom to help.

Believe it or not, I have to carve this design:



On this pumpkin...



We'll see!
Wish me luck!

Oh, I LOVE the first photo! All my first photos of Hobbes were like that--all action shots. :) I love how he sleeps with the other kitties--my Grace STILL hates Hobbes. :(

Good luck with the pumpkin carving! That looks like it would be a hard one, but know if anyone can do it, it is you!
Pumpkin kitty is cuter than ever, love seeing him!

It sounds like a challenge! Your kitty is adorable, I want one! I just saw Paint Girl post a comment above mine, she's my cousin!

Linda said...

Jennifer said...

Just stopping by to say thank you for visiting my Halloween party on Saturday! I have enjoyed scrolling through your blog this morning....cute, cute kitty! =)

I love the picture of the pumpkin on top of the tombestone.

Happy Halloween!

Wow, best of luck with that pumpkin, I'm sure you'll do a fantastic job!
As for the kitty, he is very handsome, and I love the shot of his face, but I think the first shot is the best: it shows his personality and that of cats in general - always on the lookout for something!

i can see it! much work, but doable :) we have a 6mthold kitten (zim) who also follows the 'run-woo-hoo-run' credo.

Promise said...

Wow...can't wait to see pictures of the pumpkin!!

Split Rock Ranch said...

Fabulous photos! Your kitten is so cute and he's looking so grown up now. Glad the other kitties are making nice with him now. Can't wait to see the Ice Age pumpkin! What an honor - congrats!

Kelly said...

.....woo hoo....that is pretty cool. Good luck with your carving.
p.s. I love the first photo of your kitty's hind legs in action. It's a very interesting photo and made me smile.
