I know I said we weren't ready for more cats after the last of our cats passed away on November 6th at 16.5 years. However, I haven't been without a cat in 36 years and, the hub agreed that our home wasn't quite the same without cats. Although we were "just looking" when we visited the shelter, when Ricky jumped on my lap and made himself comfortable, the deal was sealed. Of course, we had to take his sister Lucy (another sweetie) as well.
They came home with us yesterday and they are 7 months old . We were surprised to learn that they came from a shelter in Georgia so, they had quite the journey from GA to New England. We can't believe what an easy adjustment it was for them and us, although I did clean up one knocked over plant :) My fault for having plants right?
We renamed the duo as they each had a long name that we had never heard of before. Now called Lucy and Ricky, they have made themselves at home, comfortable on our laps, love to play with toys etc. We love how relatively calm they are even though their still kittens. They love to bathe each other - we are so happy we adopted both.
