No room for me on the sofa these days...

And yet somehow I just don't seem to care

Sigh! :-)

Kittens are the best. You're welcome to come over and cuddle them any time you like. :D

Don't let that hear my Speedy or my Dusty!
They are terribly jealous!

Well, they do say that you don't own your cat - your cat owns you.

They are so cute! You will have a marvellous time with them, and they will have a wonderful life with you. Much happiness to you all :)

Thank you. They are very lovely. I've had them a couple of weeks now and they're all settled in and content. And they are so tiny. They're getting bigger every day, but somehow I still can't get over how tiny they are.

Gosh,they're soooo cute!

And the big one is yours, too? So they get on well together?

Good luck to all of you!

Yep, the big one is Dixon. He's 1 year old, we got him in January. Sadly, his brother is the cat that died a few weeks ago so we got these two kittens to bring the feline portion of the family back up to a proper ratio. Dixon didn't like it at first, he hissed and hissed at them! But they're getting to know each other now, and it's so nice to see Dixon playing and cuddling with another cat again.

They look so happy and content together.
Lovely News!

Wonderful pics!

Please spam my flist with them!?

(Though it wouldn't be spam.....*g*)

::cute overload:: *g*

Hee! I must admit, I squee pretty much all the time these days with these two around. Except when they wake me up at 2.00 in the morning by jumping on my head. But even there, there's still a little bit of a squee. :D

Kittens own the world :)

So which is Saxon, and which is Norman? {never mind, I saw the answer looking elsewhere - and I would have picked the white one for Saxon myself}. Oh my, what blue, blue eyes! *dissolves in puddle of sqee*
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 05:17 (UTC) (Link)
The white one was Norman by default once I decided to name them after the two ancient races, seeing as he's the boy. Not that my cats have to conform to gender stereotypes, I suppose! Hee, they are squeeful aren't they? :D

Ahh, what sweeties!
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 05:17 (UTC) (Link)
They're my little balls of fluff shaped mischief. I love them. :D

Awww. Cuddling kits are so adorable. I'm so happy you've got them - I know you can never replace a beloved cat, but having new babies around can ease the ache. They're going to have such a wonderful life with you.
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:14 (UTC) (Link)
I would have struggled with Mo's death so much more, if I hadn't had the kittens. And yes, it's not about replacing what I lost because the only way that could happen would be to have Mo back, but it's been invaluable to me to have these kittens around to love and cuddle and care for, and to occupy me and make me happy. I hope they both have happy, spoiled, long lives. :D

Oh, they're adorable! And the picture of the white one alone is wonderful. You're lucky to have such sweet kitties... even if there isn't room on the couch (though I think they'd make room for you.)
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:16 (UTC) (Link)
I am lucky, aren't I? And I love that picture of Norman, my mum took that one. They are very sweet, cuddly little kittens most of the time. The rest of the time they're either asleep or literally climbing the walls and making mischief!

Oh, what lovely photos. Love the last one of them staring into the camera. I hope they bring you much joy - they certainly look like they should!
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:17 (UTC) (Link)
They've brought me so much happiness already, it just isn't true. :D

Ohhhh, what a wonderful way to start my morning! They are incredibly cute. Are you still off work? Because, honestly, I don't see how you would be able to ever leave them! Or basically do anything other than watch them and cuddle them! *g* And I love it that Dixon is getting along with them so very well--photographic evidence of that!

Congratulations! And I hope you'll share more photos with us as they grow.

Yes, I will leave this page eventually...I must...but, oh, look at them!
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:21 (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks! I'm glad you liked the pictures. I'm always a bit conscious of sounding like a proud mother when I talk about my pets, the kind of person who makes people roll their eyes when they go on and on about how cute they are. But seeing as you don't mind, I'll carry on!

I'm back at work full time now, and you're right, it really is so difficult to leave them. And it's always really exciting to come home and see them again, even if they always trash the flat while I'm away!

Dixon has definitely moved from antagonism to tolerance now, after a brief period of bafflement. Mind you, every now and then when they try to jump on his tail he still kind of looks up at me as if to say "seriously, what the hell am I supposed to do with this irritant?!"

Who needs room on the couch when it's being used by such a pair of little cuties? Love the little pink jelly bean toes in the second last picture. It's good that Dixon is enjoying them, too. Little sweeties!
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:23 (UTC) (Link)
That's Norman. And yes, the pink jelly bean toes are irresistible aren't they? He's so white and pink, he really is a gorgeous little kitten. I have a pink collar for him when he gets older, which I think he'll look adorable in. I think he's man enough to wear pink and get away with it. :D

What little darlings - they're gorgeous! Having three cats is a blast isn't it? I love that Dixon will get all cuddly with them - he's a star! It's been a year now and Sushi still frequently bats Jess and Mo in order to maintain her position as Top Cat and Queen of Everything. She wouldn't cuddle with them for all the biscuits in the box.
foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 17:25 (UTC) (Link)
They are gorgeous, aren't they? And they're sooo tiny. Seriously, I can't tell you how tiny they are. I'd forgotten that kittens come in such a small size. Dixon is definitely more and more tolerant of them, but he definitely prefers them when they're sleeping to when they're awake and running all over him. Dixon used to cuddle with Mo a lot, and Saxon & Norman often cuddle together, so I hope that he'll have a couple of real cuddle buddies again when they get a bit older and less insane. :d

They're all absolutely adorable. I particularly love the close-up of Norman; he looks so mischievous, loving and sharp. But the other pictures show just how close they now all are.

foreverfoxcat From: foreverfoxcat Date: 20th August 2013 20:46 (UTC) (Link)
You must come and visit them some time. They won't be this small forever. :D That picture of Norm is great, isn't it? See those claws? Those claws are a killing machine. He's still no match for a lethal side swipe from Dixon when he's being too boisterous for his own good, though.
