Little, fluffy, purr balls!

For the past six months we have been frequenting the animals shelters in our area looking for just the right new cat to join us. We saw lots, but never found the right one.  Tuesday we got a call that two long-haired kittens, 3 months old, were at the shelter, so I bundled Pieter into the car, picked up Papa from work and headed over for a look see. They were pretty cute, so we decided to go home and think about it. As we were getting ready to leave the shelter, a young woman arrived with two older kittens, about 9 months old.  Well, these little cutie-patooties didn't even make it to their cages.  We knew they were the ones!

These two boys are very sweet and purr a ton.  They have already destroyed several feather toys with all their energy and willingly take tough love from Pieter.  Simba is unaware of this world change for him, as they are in quarantine for two weeks while they get healthy from several parasites.

We have not decided on names yet for these boys. Any ideas? Please leave a comment!


  1. Bagheera could be a fun one... and Mowgli to go with it?(Jungle Book) I am of course partial to Fili and Kili (one of the dwarf pairs in the Hobbit). Athos, Porthos and Aramis are a triplet, but any 2 of the 3 would be lovely.

    My Grandma named her cat Fuzzhead and that was nice too.

    Hi new kitties!

  2. My grandmother named her Siamese after places in Thailand. Our Devons were named after rivers in Devonshire. Perhaps the local map has an inspiration?

  3. They are so cute! I love the idea of looking for name inspiration on a local map. Let us know what you decide!

  4. I love their faces in the first photo :)
    They are really adorables :)

  5. How about Tom and Jerry? They seem to have the same level of the dickens as Pieter.

  6. So cute!! How about Batman and Robin or Siscal and Ebert or some duo like that?

  7. You know, I'm partial to Bartles and James:) OR- I think regular names are cute like Kevin and Brian.
