We have finally named our kittens. Thank you to all who offered suggestions. After living with them for a week, conferring with both of our children, and checking cat name websites we have settled on Dusky and Misty. It was a close run with Licorice and Ginger, but DH thought Licorice would be too hard to use when calling. It would probably end up shorten
ed to Licky
I know I said I wouldn't be annoying and post loads of kitty pictures, but I can't post projects. Everything I am working on is a Christmas present and I wouldn't want to spoil any surprises. Besides a number of you commented that you wouldn't mind more pictures.... :o)
Here is Dusky with his "precious". DS
nicknamed it that after what Gollum
calls the ring in the Lord of the Rings, because every time Dusky has it he will growl at Misty whenever she walks by. She isn't even particularly interested in it, but he acts like she is trying to take it from him. It doesn't seem like an angry growl and he doesn't even swat at her if she does
try to take it. It's almost like he is just teasing her to come and play. It's so funny. The ball is a simple sparkly cat toy. No catnip or anything. Go figure.
Like any good parent I have to give equal post to my little girl. Here is Misty with her favorite toy. It's just a piece of ribbon I had left over from something that I thought would entertain them for a little while. She will take one end in her mouth and back up towing
it all over the house.
Periodically she will hop backwards like a bunny for no apparent reason. Dusky will also get in on the action by chasing along as she tows it. Sorry this picture isn't better, but they both move so fast I am lucky to get any pictures of them.
Lastly, I just have to post this one just because they are so darned cute.
Sunday afternoon play time while daddy watches football. :oD
It took me 6
tries to get this post published. It would disappear on me when I would try. I finally had to type it in in stages saving as a draft along the way. I think I have a little problem with tenacity since I should have been in bed hours ago, but I didn't want to give up. :c/
