I love that they’re getting along so well – and I also love it that Amber and Stardust look so much alike. They could practically be blood relations except for that whole thing where they aren’t. (Their sister Phoenix, you might recall, is from the same litter as Stardust.)
And here we have Amber chilling.
Don’t you wish she could relax just a little?
Maybe the kittens did miss me a little while I was gone. They were friendly before, but now they’re even more so. Ohno especially wants to be held, and when I pick her up she twists her body so that she’s facing me. It’s too sweet. If I walk toward my room while the kittens are out, Torvill will race in front of me and jump up on the cat tree so that I’ll pet him (not that I won’t pet him when he’s on the ground, but apparently he wants to make it easier for me.) Debi will jump up on the bed and when I walk over, she stands up on her back feet and stretches up against me so that I’ll pick her up.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but it took Scott a long time to get interested in food. He preferred to get his nutrition from the milk bar, and while he was on the skinny side, he wasn’t skin and bones, so I didn’t worry. Right around the time they turned 11 weeks (they’re 13 weeks now), he finally discovered the bowls of food and I’d see him eating more and more often. He’s gone from a skinny little guy to a guy with a round belly. Also, if I’ve never mentioned it (by which I mean “I know I’ve mentioned this 75 times before, but I’m mentioning it again), he has the SOFTEST, silkiest fur. These kittens are just killing me with how sweet they are. I have no idea how I haven’t squooshed them all ’til the marshmallow fluff leaks out their ears.
