Here they are!

10 May

Here they are! My adorable new fluffmiesters the kittens.

We picked up our new babies on Sunday (we were pretty busy this weekend and needed to recover after the vaccination clinic ordeal) so the kittens were actually a nice Mother’s Day present for me. One that I didn’t get to really enjoy. Hence the busyness.

We had an unexpected visit from family plus a big dinner planned and all happy-kitten-frolicking happened while we were gone. (Waaah!) I hope to make up for this with extra-frolic time later.

So far the kittens have gotten along okay with Zorro and Peaches. Peach is less welcoming. There have been a few tense moments but overall no vocalized aggression and few smacks to the head. Which is fortunate because Peach is like ten times their size and Zorro is like twenty. I imagine the size comparison would be something like us next to a killer whale and hoping it is not pissed that I’m swimming in its tank and eating its fish.

Poppy and Jupiter are overwhelmingly adorable. Poppy has a spritely, zippy personality and she hardly ever sits still. She woke us up mewing for her breakfast this morning and has made herself quite at home. Jupiter is mellower and more laid back. In a way they each mirror the big cats: Poppy is active like Zorro and Jupe is calm like Peach. It’s a perfect combination. I can imagine Poppy and Zorro going nuts together in the near future. I can also imagine Peach turning into a crotchety old man.

Something I have always wanted was cats that snuggle together. Our cats have always been strays that have had comfortable truces at best. Zorro will groom Peaches but this inevitably leads to a smack-down. I’m hopping that Poppy and Jupiter will snuggle and groom each other and actually show affecting. Not counting on it, but hoping.

Isobel adores the kittens and is fascinated by their food bowls. This morning I found her with one hand knuckle-deep in the kitten food and the other totally immersed in the cat’s water. As I pulled her out of there she frantically made her baby sign for “MORE! MORE! MORE!” I sometimes wish she was less cute while she is naughty.

Kind of like the kittens.

    My Kitty and her brother were from different litters, and had different fathers, but they were still close enough in age to get a real close bond. He was super friendly, she was always super needy. Just the perfect pair. They would cuddle together, he would lick her head for her (she absolutely loves to have her head touched). She never did much in return, but they both loved it so much. I’d love to have kitties that got along like that again.

    I bet Isobel loves to watch the new kitties fly by

    Awww! Our babies Owen and Luke only cuddle when we aren’t around. You basically have to barge in on them to catch them in the act. Then they jump up and run over to you like nothing was going on, haha.
