Meet the Babies

About 3 weeks ago these lovely little ones came to live with us.

The gray is a girl named Bonnie and the Siamese is a boy named Clyde, they are about 3 1/2 months old, very loving, and super active.  Meaning that they are into EVERYTHING, you can't turn your back on them for a second, it's like having a toddler.  One of their favorite things to do right now is jump up on the kitchen counters, I've taken to carrying a spray bottle around with me to make them get down which works better on Bonnie than it does Clyde.

Getting anything done with them around is quite the undertaking as they need to know what you're doing and get up close and personal with what ever you're working on, so I really haven't gotten much of anything done in the last few weeks.

I have however come out of the experience with a new resolve with regards to adopting kittens, never get just one.  My other two cats I got as kittens singly and years apart, the eldest is super skittish, never played even as a kitten, and runs off and hides at every little sound.  The other who is a couple years old, doesn't really play well with other cats and hisses at every little thing she doesn't like.  Also play is so very important in the kittens development and as someone who works full-time away from home I really can't fill that role.  Even if I didn't it's really not a fair fight.
