If you are following me on Twitter then you will already know that yesterday we adopted two kittens! We have always been cat people (though I love dogs too) but our last two cats, whom we had since they were kittens, became very old and sick and had to be put to sleep. It was quite heart breaking because we had them each for about 14 years, so it was like losing a member of the family. After much careful consideration we found ourselves ready for a pet again. We thought it would be fun to get kittens rather than adult cats, so that we could enjoy the first few very playful months. We decided it would be best to get two from the same litter, as they could keep each other company during the day when everyone is at work.
So here they are. The boy is the black and white, who I have named Frankie, and his sister is the brown tabby who we have named Missy. They are approx. 9-10 weeks old.
They play like this for hours and are very entertaining!
All that playing is thirsty work!
It’s also very tiring!
