PostSubject: New additions to the family   Fri 25 Dec 2015, 11:12 pm

Two weeks ago today we went to see what the local animal shelter had in the way of kittens. We had been wanting another cat for years but had to work around our middle sons allergies. Fortunately he has outgrown his allergy to cats. The animal shelter had two kittens, siblings that were 3 months old. We were just going to get one, but could not bring ourselves to break them up. Not only are they siblings, but we believe they are twins as well. There is only one marking on them that is different and that one is mirrored. Our animal shelter is very reasonable to adopting cats. Minimum of a $10 donation each, and they are fixed, all shots given, and even chipped.

So here are the boys, and in the spirit of the season, their names are Chewie and Wicket.

Gorgeous kittens Sam. We had a grey and white years ago.... went by the name of Mr Snugs.

We were just going to get one, but could not bring ourselves to break them up. wrote:

Familiar story there. We once took in two rescue horses for the same reason.

I see that they've already made themselves at home.

Two of our cats, Houdini and Missy, are brother and sister, and inseparable

Lucy wants to meet the new kids but I am letting them make the first move. This is the closest one of them has been so far.



I am guessing that in a couple months they will be best buds.

Aw!  Sweet to see.  They'll bring life and love to the home.  Just be careful for furry objects flying past your feet.

Hi Sam,

They both look so cute, they also look as though they have already gotten comfy, well done to both you and your other half for rescuing them both and for not splitting them up...

She looks as though she could have a mischievous streak in her, and try blame it on the kittens lol....

It'll be Armageddon then .... And fun to watch!!
