Well, it's been 9 months since I lost my cats. I was on a trip to Farm & Fleet to get knuckle bones for the dogs, and there was a rescue group with kittens up for adoption. I shouldn't have looked, but there was one little girl that caught my eye right away. She had the most unique markings I had ever seen, and she was just busy playing while her cage mate (her brother, I later found out) slept. It was love at first site! The woman took her out so I could hold her, and I just didn't want to put her down. I did tell them I needed to think it over, and tried to find someone to call to talk me out of getting her. No one was answering. I even checked out and took my bags out to the car, and sat there for a while, and had to go back in. I did look at an older cat, she was gorgeous, but there was something about that little girl. I was also concerned about getting a kitten, and having it be alone all day while I was at work. The women there had the perfect solution!

Here are Emily and Evan.

Here's another of Emily. You can see her markings.

They are both such cuddlebugs. They were found cold and crying under a porch, with no sign of their mother. The whole litter was bottlefed, so they love to be held.

Thanks! I just love them so much.

I'm going to give them time, before they get introduced to the dogs. The woman that was fostering them had dogs, that were out around the kittens, and my dogs were raised with cats, so I'm hoping it won't go too badly.

Aw! They're cute. Reminds me of my Gracie (also a grey tabby).

Bottle fed kittens are the very best. Getting two is such a good idea! They will be company for each other when you are gone. And - they are just gorgeous!!!!!

They are just so much fun to watch. They play and wrestle, but they'll take a break every now and then to come over for cuddles. I tried putting them in a puppy ex-pen for a few hours after work yesterday. I thought they could get more familiar with the dogs, but I think the whole pack poking noses between the bars was too overwhelming. So far, they've been introduced to Sissy, my 14 month old pup. She has been fine with them. More interested in their food, and they didn't stop playing for very long when she came in the room. I think we'll stay with just her allowed in the room with them for a week or so, before I introduce the next one.

So far, so good. They are still staying primarily in my room, and I've only been letting one dog in at a time, and that seems to work. Once they're a little bigger, I'll let them out more when I'm home, but for now, my room is big enough for them. They spend most of the time wrestling with each other or sitting in the windows looking at the birds outside.

How are the new kitties, Deb?

They're doing great. Still confined most of the time to my bedroom, when I'm not home. Some of the dogs are still apt to give chase, but neither of them is afraid of the dogs. Emily and Evan are about 6 months old now, big enough that they bend curtain rods when they climb up the curtains, but kittenish enough to still try!

I'll have to get some new pictures of them to post.

Thanks for asking about them,
Deb

I lost my Evan yesterday to FIA. He was diagnosed on Sunday, and even though the vet said his red cell count wasn't real bad, and he was put on what sounds like the proper medication protocol (from what I've found online), he continued to go downhill, and died at the vets office yesterday morning. I am devastated, and Emily doesn't know what to do with herself.

So sorry for your loss. I think kitties go to heaven...and they're free of all their suffering and will scamper about like kittens. At least, that's the heaven I want to go to someday.
