Today i went to the Detroit Zoo's Meet Your Best Friend Day, and came home with two rambunctious velcro- kittehs. Sure they look all mellow in the picture below, but don't let them fool you. They are littermates and best pals, and even with a hissing, spitting elderly cat to evade, it took no more than a coulple of hours for them to settle in.
The grey and cream bebeh is Nell, who is the ringleader. She is very brave and affectionate, and her preferred sleeping spot is over my heart. As you can see, she takes no guff from Cthulu or Harvey Pekar, perhaps because he's not her Harv.
The little marmalade dude is Harv, who is a little retiring but eats like a horse, and like many shy cats, has quickly scoped out the immediate rooms for the best hiding places.
Pandy, who really needs the company after losing Eveready, Jim, and the Kramer, hasn't yet appreciated the situation. For months i've been debating whether kittens are for me or her, because she enjoys being the only cat to such a degree her clinging was beginning to wear on me. She's been hissing, spitting, and dashing about as if she's the interloper all day, but is purring on my lap as i write this. The hellions are passed out in the safe corner they have claimed next to the couch. i think it will be OK.
