about these kittens...

the family is adjusting to the kittens really well! tibby is hissing and growling at them, but tibby hisses and growls at everyone and everything, so that's to be expected. jane follows them with loads of curiosity, and is starting to play with them. the kids have mini kitty scratches all over their hands and shoulders, but that doesn't deter them from loving these little guys to bits.

the kitties are adjusting to our home and family! they are eating more, playing more (the floor is littered with little kitty toys) and have done no major amount of destruction. we have discovered that they like people food, unfortunately, because i served up pumpkin pie with whipped cream and they both wanted their helpings.

however, the cutest thing is that jingle bell nurses on orion's ear when they're snuggled up together. it is so cute! tibby has always suckled his back foot, but i'd never seen a cat do that to another cat. orion gets a little irritated, but gives her a few minutes before he shakes his head and stalks away. very funny.

How cute. I used to love it when cats would try to nurse on my leg or in the nook of my arm (I know this could be misconstrued by someone, but it was all perfectly innocent). I loved it!

Oh, Melissa, I really am enjoying reading all about your kittens' antics, they sound soooo cute! I'll bet your kids are having their best Christmas ever with these two wonderful additions! :) Have fun with them!

They're so cute! My mom has two cats, brothers, and when she got them as little kittens, one would nurse on the other's ear. :)

They are adorable! What cutie pies!!!!! I hope Tibby warms up to them soon. Sounds like my cat, Izzie. She's a very dominant kitty.
