Cat Update

The cats are growing much more slowly now so I don’t notice it as much.  They’re about 7 1/2 months old.  They seem pretty grown up to us, but they’re not supposed to stop growing until they’re about a year, or even more.

The kittens/cats are growing so fast it’s hard to keep up.  Every few days I look at them and think: you’re bigger today!  So I thought I’d better put up some pictures.

Boxes and paper are some of the best toys.

Day Two – Kitten Exchange

After one day and night, we decided to exchange Fuzzy for Java’s sister Molly.  Fuzzy was just not happy.  He hissed and prowled and looked very uncomfortable.  We really wanted cats that would get along with each other, and would be comfortable riding in the car.  Fuzzy wasn’t doing either.

We also gave the kittens new names.  Java – the boy – is Tiger.  Molly – the girl – is Tansy.  Tiger and Tansy – TNT.

The First Day – September 25, 2012

Today, after weeks of thinking about it, we brought home two kittens.  We got them from Feline Rescue, a Saint Paul cat shelter where the kids and I volunteered many years ago.

These will be indoor only cats.  I’m a firm believer in keeping cats inside.

We got two boys, Java and Fuzzy.  Java is a tabby, about 3 months old, Fuzzy is gray with longer hair, and is a few months older.
