Featured Friday: KC and the Sherwood Bunch

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Diligence is the mother of good luck.” While that is true, we think that a group of seven cats bring extra good luck! Where can we find seven cats, you ask? We know just the place!

Look no further than Houston, Texas, where KC and the Sherwood Bunch hang out, host contests, and sport hats so well that they make Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat look like an amateur!

It all started back in May of 2004, where a cat-fearing lady named Mary Lynn was presented with an opportunity to adopt her neighbor’s cat. Upon seeing a beautiful feline with huge ice blue eyes staring back at her, Mary Lynn fell in love, took her in, and named her Missy Blue Eyes.

Two years later, Mary Lynn adopted a scared, sick, and underweight 1-month-old kitten and named her KC, after the human who saved her life.

One year later, on July 31, 2007, Mary Lynn’s cat family more than doubled in size when a Tuxedo cat named Dinah gave birth to a litter of kittens. The now cat-loving Mary Lynn kept three mankitties and named them Sol, Smokey, and BJ.

The six cats lived in harmony, but the family wasn’t complete until last month, when lucky number seven entered the picture. Mary Lynn (who the cats have since christened Mom ML) found a young thin female kitten on her porch, and took her in. She instantly took to sleeping beside Mom ML with her head on the pillow. So far, the kitten doesn’t have a name yet, so everyone’s calling her Baby Cat. Who knows, maybe it’ll stick! The Sherwood Bunch is hosting a naming contest for Baby Cat. Psst, we think it’d be a great idea to name the beautiful blue-eyed kitten Seven. You heard it here first!

The Sherwood Bunch is living the life! Their blog is filled with adorable pictures of the kitties exploring, pondering life’s biggest mysteries, and playing with each other. Just the other day, they celebrated Missy’s birthday with a yummy can of duck!

Their days are filled with the mancats (especially BJ) ruling the roost, the ladycats posing sweetly for the pictures, and all the cats sending out purrs and prayers for their feline friends. It’s a blog worth checking out!


  1. Oh, good, it’s the Sherwood Bunch today. We love them. But you forgot to mention Faith Boomerang. If it wasn’t for her, there would be no Sol, Smokey & BJ living there.

  2. That is one very giving person, that ML and she works herself to the bone helping other people and kitties too. She would give you the shirt off her back if she thought you needed it. She works really hard to keep the cat blogosphere going with birthdays, anniversaries, auctions, and all kinds of activities along with taking care of her wonderful 7 cats. Thanks for featuring Them.

  3. I’s just now seeing this!!!! Wow!!!
    Is this cool or what???
    I’s famous, yes I is. Hee hee hee.
    I fink last week we was all worried about our noo-est sisfur, Baby Cat, who haffed surjery. Hers is furry tiny (less than 4 pounds at about 1.5 yrs old) and her standard lady-garden-ectomy turned out to be a bit more.
    This is so wonderful. And such a surprize, too.
    But there is a Miss Faith Boomerang that haf to be mentioned. Hers earned hers middle name, Boomerang, cause we took hers to tha no-kill shelter along wif tha mancats and then bounced back to us.
    Long story short, the shelter called and asked us to come get hers back. She had 6 families wanting to adopt her, but she put tha bitey on effurryone who came near hers.
    Mom ML RAN to tha shelter to get hers… effurryone watched as she had to fetch Faith from tha cage, they was all skeered of little Faith.
    After Faith was put in hers carrier, Sol reached out and grabbed Mom ML’s sleeve wif hims claws, followed by Smokey and then BJ.
    So she putted tha 3 brofurs in another big carrier.
    All tha rest of tha litter was already adopted, or she’d haf bringed them all back home and there’d be 13 cats here today! Ha ha.
    Fanks so much fur this wonnerful artickle.
    Love & Purrs,
