I'm trying not to perish in this heat. Today it was 90 before 11, and it stayed in the 90s until after 9 am or so. Sometimes it feels like I've done nothing but complain about the weather this year-whining about the cold, the ice, the floods and now the heat.
I haven't blogged much lately and I'm not sure why. Maybe when I figure it out I can blog about it...ok that made me smile.
There are two new additions to report-Pumpkin and Patches are brother kittens. Pumpkin is a fluffy yellow tiger, and Patches his brother, is a short haired yellow tiger with, you guessed it, patches of white. They are brothers from the same litter, but it looks like they had different fathers or at least took after different sides of the family. Pumpkin is laid back, fluffy and square, like a persian. Patches is long and lean....but both have siamese voices. Patches is the instigator and Pumpkin is the diplomat. Luna is not sure what to think.
Oliver the parrot is delighted to supervise the kitty introductions. He chatters and fusses and bosses them around. If someone hisses, he says very sternly "QUIET" and if they move where he can't see them he hollers "Kitty Kitty KITTY-come here NOW" The best news is the kittens are not at all freaked out by it-so that is one worry I can check off the list.
The kittens came from a friend on a message board-she hand raised the entire litter until the Mom tamed down enough to come in and help. I had picked Pumpkin out before his eyes were open-but then decided I'd take the final two boys. It turned out that they were Pumpkin and Patches-so I got Pumpkin anyway. Everyone scooped up the cream colored and siamese marked siblings and left the two yellow boys.
People are CRAZY-because everyone knows that there is nothing on earth that is more snuggly than a fat ginger cat-and now I have two! Ok they are smallish yet-but fat gingers they will be in no time at all.
