Two Calicos

First, the answer to the previous Count the Cats is six.  The tricky one is here:

Quot was hiding in the shadows back there.  (I kept Five-Spice in the crop to match the post title better.)

Here’s another cute picture of Five-Spice that reminds me a lot of one we have of CMY as an adolescent climbing in that same shelf.

A few weeks ago at the vet I saw (and got to hold) this adorable dilute calico kitten waiting for her very first checkup.

Naturally I had to go look for photos of Five-Spice at a similar age.  This is probably the first one I took of her, before we trapped the kittykins:

Five-Spice doesn’t look much different, other than size.  But look at little baby Vanilla:

See, she really was vanilla-colored.  (We just called her White Kitten at the time, and her family was White Cat, Calico Kitten, Orange Kitten, and Gray Kitten.)
