Meet Merlin and Morgana, our new kittens. They were found without their mommy, only a few days old and starving. A friendly animal control lady fostered them until they were old enough to find a home where they could be loved and fed and cuddled -- ours.
At first, they were rather shy. This is Merlin. He's a feisty little guy who likes to play and cuddle. They both still spook easily, but he has come up to me for a cuddle and even walked all over my chest. I think he'll like it here.
Here, we have Merlin's sister Morgana. She's the shy one and she gets scared easily, but at least she no longer hides the second we enter the room. She's still a bit suspicious of this whole new home and people thing, but she'll come around. Oh, and that green thing? It's a cat toy on a stick and her new favorite thing. She'll drag it all over the house and even play with it by herself.
Here they are, stuffing themselves. The scratching post doesn't interest them in the least.
They do love to scamper up and down the stairs. Merlin is too funny, he'll be chasing his tail up and down the stairs, and his sister will look at him like she can't believe he's such an idiot. Of the two, she's clearly the smart one. Oh, and did I mention that she chased around the animal control lady's mastiff when they were in foster care?
