After three months without Emma, I am proud to introduce you to "The Bitsies" (as in, the Itsy Bitsies).
Meet Bella (calico) and Pete (tiger).
They picked us at a local shelter about a month ago and although they are from different litters, they are the bestest buds-- sharing naps, and playtime, and general adorableness. We missed Emma very much and tho' no catter could ever replace her, we are very happy to give a good home to two such sweet babies. Pete was sick but is almost better and packing on the pounds. The very first night, he slept between our pillows and has been a total love ever since. Bell is a bit more reserved, but adores having her tummy rubbed. (Anyone reading this blog for a while may recall my obsession with Emma's belly.)
Sorry the pictures are late in coming here to you all.
These are from today. We bought them a nine-foot tower that is currently in our new living room:
Despite weighing three pounds each a month ago, Pete has started to grow so fast. He is going to be a beast!
We are totally in kitty heaven. They are so. freakin'. cute!
In honor of themom, Happy Caturday!
