Do you remember Jareth and Charming, from the Royals litter? Here they were from late April/ early May:
As you may remember, they were adopted together. Jareth is now Sooty, and Charming is now Toby. And they’re growing up!
Their mama reports that they are still inseparable – and they are HUGE. They’re both 13 (!) pounds!
Sooty likes to play hide and seek with his mama. Sometimes he can’t find her, which means that she wins – and when she jumps out at him, he falls on his back and shows his belly. If, on the other hand, he finds her before she can hide, that means that he wins – and he grabs her legs to show that he was the winner!
Toby is the more laid-back of the two – he puts up with being held like a baby, and he’ll snuggle up and sleep in his mama’s lap sometimes. Sooty, on the other hand, is only up for lap-sitting when the lap he’s sitting in is on the potty. Silly boy!
Can you believe it hasn’t even been a year since those sweet boys were born? It seems like forever ago – and it also seems like it just happened. Don’t you love it when siblings get to stay together forever? That’s one of my favorite things!
(Thanks for the update and pictures, Toby & Sooty’s mama. We sure do love seeing their sweet faces!)
The five original Players (Dennis was still in the big cat tree). On the little blue tree, Ferdinand peeking out. In the wall basket, Angelo. On the doll bed, Orlando. Sniffing the big mylar ball (toward the middle of the picture), is Mariette. And watching Mariette (on the right side of the picture) is Maria.
After I told someone in the comments the other day that I couldn’t get any pictures of Dennis snuggled up with the other kittens because there was none of that going on, I walked into the kitten room yesterday to find Dennis and Angelo snuggled up together in the cat tree condo. Did I have the camera with me? Of COURSE not. But I suspect that’s not the last time that’ll happen – they both looked awfully happy, I bet it’s the start of a beautiful friendship!
