Last time you saw Flynn here on the blog it was National Cat Day, he was much smaller and fuzzier so I figured I’d show off how mature he’s become! He’s also become a little less of a terror, I repeat…little less.  He’s gotten used to our schedule a bit more though he still meows at the bedroom door most mornings but it’s become a backup alarm so it’s fine. I know you’re thinking, you don’t let your cats sleep with you? And no, I don’t. I tried many years ago with Tater and he just kept me up with moving or licking since I’m a very light sleeper (every night I use a noise machine and/or earplugs!) so I decided it would be better to sleep separately.  I put out all their toys and give them treats before bed so they don’t really mind just want to snuggle before I get up to get myself showered and ready for work days. Flynn has also become quite the model, much like Tater, check him out!

Speaking of Tater, Flynn loves his older brother and mimics everything he does including begging for wet food whenever I approach the cupboard that holds the magically moist ‘kitty crack’ food. Do your cats revert to feral crazies when you bring out the wet food? It’s hilarious how nuts they become; I know they enjoy it much more than dry food so I treat them to it a couple times a week.

Tater is very affectionate and wants to be in your lap or on you at all times, so to get a new addition that only sort of wants attention sometimes it was much different. I love the little dude and am especially into him hanging out while I take a bath on the edge of the tub. We even got him rubber ducks! We’ve all made adjustments and he’s become a sweet member of our little family!

Happy Friday from Flynn, Tater, Dustin and Flashy!


Meet the newest addition to the Smith-Winchester-Tater family!  A little tabby tiger named Flynn. A buddy of mine found the dirt covered kitten in his backyard in East Atlanta and posted him on Instagram saying, “found this kitten outside my house, anybody want it? I’m calling it Kurt Russell for now” and since Dustin and I had already been talking about adopting I went to meet him and he was SO SWEET! needless to say it was love at first sight and he came home with me and met Dustin who also fell for him and Tater who wasn’t as big of a fan but has learned to “love” the little dude in small steps.
He had his first check up with the vet today and got a clean bill of health, a few shots and we found out he’s around 10 weeks old. He’s a lot more hyper active than any of my previous kittens but super fun and playful! My favorite thing he does is perch on shoulders and I’ve already taken lots of pics with him sitting on my friends like a parrot! 
All of the above photos were taken with my 50mm 1.4 lens with no edits, even the black & white one was shot in monochrome-LOVE how they turned out. it’s been quite difficult to catch him sitting still so I was happy to get him being sweet and innocent! 
While some of my friends are having babies, I on the other hand am not quite there, I’ll take a feisty feline for now!


my furry baby was being especially cute this morning.. nothing new just thought I’d share since I had my camera out and shooting some items to list on Ebay. he’s such a little model!
have a good weekend everyone!
