If anyone ever asks you how to tell Shecky and Skelton apart (and I know that the topic comes up just about continuously in your lives, you can’t fool me), you can tell them that Shecky (on the tree) has much more white on his chest and neck.
See? I know this is Shecky using Roseanne as a pillow, because I can see the white peeking out on the side of his neck. (Also, Skelton has more red to his coloring than Shecky does, but that doesn’t always come through in pictures, especially if there’s only one of them in the picture.)
I keep trying to convince these kittens to keep their blue eyes, but it’s not really working. You can see the green around Gilda’s pupils, slowly moving outward. I’ve seen this process lots of times, but it’s always fascinating to me.
Louis (in the middle) is all “Hey, you guys, stop! I need my ears!” and Rickles is all “No, we don’t have any extra kitten ears over here, we’re going to eat these!” and Skelton is all “Oh, these kitten ears are PARTICULARLY moist and tender!”
It always takes me a minute to figure out who’s missing. It helps that there are two buff kittens, two orange kittens, and three darker kittens, so I just generally think “Okay, two buffs are present, two oranges are present, it’s one of the dark kittens…” It was Roseanne who was missing. She’s not standoffish, but I can see why it might seem that way from today’s pictures! Starting with Gilda and moving clockwise we’ve got: Gilda, Louis, Rickles, Belushi (flopped over Rickles), Shecky, and Skelton.
Video! Gilda is a mighty, mighty huntress, and if you’re thinking about looking at HER TOY, you better think again!
