Tiger is an 8 week old male...um...kitten. Not sure what I was going to write, like I had this special $100 cat or something. Nope. Free kitty from my friend, Mandi. But isn't he cute?!
Midnight was also free from down the road. She's about 6 weeks and is such a tiny little thing!
This is where they live...the Spectacular 5 Star Garage and eventually (when they're not scaredy cats...sorry I couldn't help myself) outside as well. The garage is a convenient place for them to live since we have mice that also find solace there, and we're not mice people.
The kids and I are having a ton of fun with them. So far, they beat the chickens in cuteness, cuddliness, and overall fun, which (let's be honest) is not that hard to accomplish. Chickens stink and aren't cuddly. At all. No matter what those chicken lovers say. Just plug your ears to the lies. (No offense to any crazy chicken lovers. No offense about the "crazy" either. Right? Good. Because you know you're crazy...)
So, back to cats. I've only ever had one cat in my whole, wide life, and he didn't stick around very long. But he sure left an impression on the kids and me (not Nate - at all - since he happens to be allergic to many furry animals, including cats, but what a good sport he is letting me live out some of my animal dreams! Love you my dear.)
We always thought it would be fun to get another cat (or cats). And I really wanted a male and female so that we could study reproduction in school and then witness it in real life. HA! No, really. I'd like Midnight to become a mommy. I've been blessed by motherhood, so I'm only looking out for her own good. ;) She just better learn to get along with Tiger and not hiss when he comes near. She has issues. Or maybe it's him. Either way, they'll just have to learn to get along. Really well.
Anyway, we're pretty excited about our new little furry friends. Come on over and see them sometime! We'll be happy to show them off...as long as they don't come to the same demise as some feathered creatures I once had. So far, I haven't been all that great with animals (clearing throat).
I'm sure this adventure will be different.
