Remember those two kittens that Retta found beside the highway last month? Well here they are again, only this time they have names. We named the cute gray and white kitten on the top perch Hobbs. The other cute kitten, the one that sports a black and white coat, is named Bosco.
Bosco and Hobbs are doing just fine. Their health is excellent, and they are quite pleased with their daily routine; sleep, eat, play….. sleep, eat, play….. sleep, eat, play.
Max (our 2 year old tabby) did not know quite what to make of these kittens at first, which might stem from the fact that he was an “only child” and had no prior recollection of feline siblings. Despite a little bit of trepidation, curiosity eventually got the better of Max, and he now seems to have accepted the two newcomers as legitimate members of the family.
Gracie (our huge but gentle Great Pyrenees) and George (a genius Yellow Lab) are well conditioned to the routines of our ever-expanding household. To their way of thinking, two more family members to protect only adds to their status and prestige around here, so they are happy. They told me so.
