The Cats

Gabrielle (named after that Xena character) has gotten a lot heavier lately. Which is interesting because if we did not intercede, I am sure she would not get food because Kif eats up every thing he sees...

Gabby is our older cat. Isn't it the way of things--you do not realize how old you (or your pets/kids) are until they are compared to a new addition. I think that Gabby is both pleased and irritated with the new addition. The picture above shows them at their most happy--cuddling up with each other, licking each other softly.

Unfortunately, there are also times where we hear running running, thump, thump, Kif chases Gabby around the house to tackle her. Most times she is fine with it...but there are times when we really think Gabby would like to kick Kif's ass.

Maybe things will be a bit more calm once Kif has his neutering. I hope it doesn't change his personality TOO much...but it would be nice if he was not like the second toddler in the house.

Kif is rambunctious. He is into everything. He wants to eat any food left out in the house. He wants to cuddle and lick your face at 4 a.m.---he wants to bite your socks. Right now he is moving the huge water dish around the kitchen floor (it has a big water bottle on top).

Kif is damned lucky he is so damned cute.

Isn't it amazing how much noise two cats running around can make? They are cute kitties!

Oh they are so sweet together! And I say the same thing to Marty a lot, you're so lucky you're so cute! I guess the cuteness factor helps out when they are rotten stinkers.

It sounds like the kitty relationship at my house.

Mini-Vacation - Connecticut

We needed a break from the norm...Michael wanted to go visit the Peabody Yale Museum again...and, well, Chewy was feeling a tad overwhelmed...
