So, our kittens have now been with us a month, and I have to say they are a delight. A sometimes noisy/smelly/slightly scratchy delight, but such a lovely addition to our home. I’m so glad that they were rescued so they could come to us. Three very different but lovely characters.
Fry is a little honey bun! He is such an affectionate wee fellow and loves to give kisses, check his humans are okay, and have his belly stroked. His purr is deep and full bodied – when he’s happy everyone knows it, which is hilarious! Here he is perched on the back of the couch, making sure I’m okay.
All three kitten-cats (Poppet’s 19 months old and the wee ones are 13 weeks, so they are all a little kittenish!) love to play. Here they are with some string, which I really should write as STRING because it is just. so. exciting. to this gang! They ‘talk’ to each other all the time – my favourite sound is the chirruping noise they make at each other when they have found something or they are looking for one another. Too funny!
Poppet has mellowed so much and become very relaxed. Because we don’t know much about her previous owners (bar the fact that they abandoned her and her kitties) we don’t know how she was treated before. Now, however, she is very relaxed and social and loves fusses. She also adores Matthew – it’s very sweet how excited she gets when he gets home from work!
Leela is still very small, but eating plenty. She was clearly the runt of the litter, but more than makes up for it with a giant character. She loves snuggles and fusses but sometimes gets very jumpy and skitterish – I think because she’s so small. She loves playfighting with Poppet and Fry, but needs to learn when to pick her battles! She’s a proper mama’s girl – she loves shoes, showtunes, and cheese!
Poppet is definitely the boss!
Fry grooming me. Too funny.
Leela came to help me write this post.
Sleepy cats = relaxation.
Such a beautiful girl!
Fry quite likes watching TV with me. And he really wants to tweet – if twitter’s open he loves to tapdance on the keyboard.
Last up, a couple of recent videos.
Whenever we give the kittens a little meat or fish as a treat, Poppet and Fry tuck right in. Leela, meanwhile, does this:
