meet the kitties
September 20, 2012
This is Skeeter. She is about a year old according to the shelter’s estimate, and she is named after a country singer. This photo was taken on her first day with us, right after I shouted “oy!” to prevent her from scrambling from the window ledge onto the piano keys, Kevin style (yup, she’s a peckerhead). She’s inquisitive and full of energy, and had fully explored the main floor and basement within the first five minutes of arriving in her new home. On just her second day of going outside on her own, I looked out the dining room window just in time to see her come careening across the back patio in hot pursuit of a squirrel, both of them rolling over a few times before crashing into the side of the house together. Yup. She’s a peckerhead.
She does have all four legs, some of them just move quickly.
Skeeter likes: head scritches; running up and down like a wild animal; going outside and wedging herself under the front porch; being picked up and cuddled (for a little while); licking things; playing the bite-me game; scratching furniture. Skeeter dislikes: wet cat food; being touched on her sides; the guitar; the name tag that dangles from her collar; Wanda.
And this is Wanda. She is also around a year old, and she is named after the grandmother of rockabilly. Wanda is a little more cautious, and had found a good hiding spot behind the furnace within her first five minutes in her new home. Here she is on day two, nervous on the basement floor after I’d coaxed her out of her corner:
Wanda has long fur growing out from between her toes, which gave me the wiggins at first (although I’m beginning to get used to it). Although she seems to weigh about half a kilogram, she’s got a rich, deep, resounding growl which she employs pretty much every time Skeeter gets close to her.
Wanda likes: quiet places; pretty much every kind of snuggling; curling up to sleep next to wet, blocking knits; chasing yarn; yogourt. Wanda dislikes: being picked up; loud noises; Skeeter.
Wanda spends much of her free time peeking adorably out from absurdly inadequate hiding places.
Skeeter spends much of her free time blending in with the chesterfield.
