I'm still not really a cat person, but these kittens are so stinkin' adorable.
Meet Silver Belle, the grey one, and either Millie or Nellie Bly for the black and white one. I'm still deciding.
We're down to just the two kittens, plus Kitty Witty, yeah we never did really name the stray that adopted us last year.
Their mama and three siblings went to live as barn cats for one of M's coworkers. The two I liked the most are still here, even though M doesn't think we need both, I just can't decided which one I'd like more, so they remain.
These two are pretty rambunctious so I'm hoping they learn to be mousers and hunt for themselves like Kitty Witty, who is a mouse hunting machine.
There were feathers all over the garage the other night, so somebody caught a bird, just not sure who.
The plan is for these to all be outdoor cats who help keep the rodent and pest population under control, but also for them to be friendly, so I play with them, okay I can't lie, I totally cuddle them a least a few days a week. That's usually when M says something like, "I thought you didn't like cats."
We're hoping they can at least learn the civilized art of the litter box versus making a mess of our garage and back deck. Wouldn't that be grand?
They're almost two months old now, so they'll be getting fixed soon too. Hopefully we'll be able to take them to the Humane Society's spay/neuter clinic so we don't have to shell out a pretty penny to take care of cats we didn't ask for, though I'm partial to them, but really, it's a public service to help keep our own cat population from exploding.
So for now, kitten cuddles and mayhem, and me deciding on a name for the black and white one. Thoughts?
