Halfway to Cats   2 comments

Rolling on the Floor
Ohio Alleycat Resource told us Beso and Luna were born on April 15. this means that, last weekend, they were six months old. Also, they’ve been with us for two months. We are starting to see their personalities as they are settling in.

Lazy Beso
Beso is a very calm, mellow cat. He tends to lay near us. He hasn’t quite gotten the “right on to of us” nature of his sister. He still has the loudest purr, and it takes nothing for it to start. He purrs when he sees one of the other cats being petted.

He still very close to Eddy. For his part, Eddy seems quite happy to have a partner in his coalition. We can often find them laying together, or giving one another a bath.
Eddy Thinks Beso Needs a Bath
Often, baths become wrestling matches.

However, Eddy doesn’t have to hold back quite as much, as Beso holds his own quite well.
Beso Gets the Advantage
The most striking thing about Beso is that he’s getting big. About a week ago, I was concerned that he might have been putting on a bit too much weight. Then I realized he simply filled out.

We’re pretty sure he’ll be bigger than Eddy. I’ve taken to calling him (in a cheesy fake Russian accent) a “big Siberian tiger.” You may remember when we got the Dream Curl. You can see how he has grown relative to this (and Luna in the background).
Beso in the Dream Curl
Luna is growing, but still smaller than her brother. She makes up for it by taking life at full steam. She’s the first to try jumping into places they haven’t been. I hate using the term “ninja,” as it has become cliche. However, her knack for appearing out of nowhere in a spot you swore she wasn’t seems to be aptly described that way.
Crouching Micropanther
Luna likes to cuddle, especially with my wife. Often, it will be when my wife is working on her laptop. Luna will put a paw on the keyboard, and try to direct the mouse. Perhaps she’s a hacker.

A hacker-ninja…hmmmm…sounds like she could easily be a Neal Stephenson character.

Eddy still seems to be happy to have the kittens, though he does have to bop them on the head. We almost wish he would do it more, like when they are eating his food. However, he seems to view that as justification for getting into the kitten food.

While taking these pictures, he decided to pose. Isn’t he a handsome cat?

Having two kittens has been a lot of fun, even if we often feel like we have our hands full. They have been a great addition to the family. We’re happy they are doing so well and settling in. They are going to be wonderful cats. Still, it’s bittersweet they are growing up so fast.

  1. great post! Love to see how they are doing and growing. You’re right, it is bittersweet, they are cats much longer that they are kittens. Oh, and Eddy is very handsome

  2. It is amazing how quickly they grow up. And what beauties they are! It is so sweet to see them having fun with Eddy. Sprocket gets bopped plenty too, but it doesn’t really keep him back. I think his furry Miao Uncles overindulge him.

    Eddy has a lovely nose.
