Our Newest Family Members!

Last night, our wait was over! The kittens arrived at our place around 8:00pm and were immediately set free in our room. I absolutely adore how kittens are usually so fearless! They just took off and immediately started exploring, playing with each other, drinking their water and checking out their new digs. Ellen hung around for a few minutes to see how they did, but then she had to run back home and check on all her pets as well.

So, we spent an hour or so getting them sorted last night, then spent some time with our other cat, Lily. I did some laundry, and then we went to bed. The kittens were asleep in their own bed, nestled in our closet, but after I brushed my teeth they were wide awake and wanting to explore. They spent the night sleeping by our heads and alternatively crawling all over us and being adorable. I didn’t get much sleep, but man…they’re worth it!

Forgive the photo quality, they were on my iPhone.  Aren’t they adorable!  I can’t wait to go home and snuggle them some more (and snuggle Lily too!).

    • They haven’t been named yet…but we’re thinking Harry Potter names!

      They haven’t met Lily yet…we’re doing a very phased introduction. This week they’ll stay separated and I’ll just put things that smell like them by Lily (and vice versa) so that their scent isn’t foreign. Next week is supervised visits, the week after is more supervised visits and supervised feedings. After that…shit is gonna get real!!
