Well, we couldn't stand it any longer. We just had to have a little kitty... uh...kitties...
or as Laura called them, our three little shredding machines.
This shot on the left is their very last minute in the Lincoln County Humane Society's shelter. They are just 8 weeks old and each weighs less than 2 lbs. (all the photos are clickable for larger images)
This photo on the right is the first sniff of their new home. mmmm... what is that smell...?
Oh, btw, they are all males (we think) ...or at least for 3 more weeks. (ouch)
Aren't they just the cutest little things? Their names at the shelter were Bumble, Boo Boo, and Butterbear. We've talked about those and considered several others. We wanted to call them Winken, Blinken & Nod - but that really only works if you call them all at once. We were less happy saying, 'come here, Blinken'.
That could be a raindeer, for goodness sakes!
Then we thought...orange tabbies...hmmm...famous redheads.
Well, we can't call one Lucy, and most of the redheaded men were just called RED. Red Skelton, Red Buttons, Red Auerbach, Red Foxx... no way.
So ok, now what? Well, there's Marmalade. That's nice. So what else? I know!
Now we have Mango, Marmalade, and Pumpkin Pie (punkin, for short. Marmalade is the alpha male.
Biggest cat - biggest name, and the brown print collar. He's also a little darker. Mango, 'cause man, can he GO, and 'cause he's orange, of course. He's wearing the striped collar. And my little Punkin' Pie - the cutest one, I think. He's in red.
And get a load of these two shots:
The left one I call '2 Heads & a Butt', and then there's 'The Flip Side'. All sleeping peacefully.
We spent too much money - they've already paid it back. It so nice to have some kittens in the house.
