Awwwwwz!

Meet Callie and Mallie. They need to be fixed, and aren't quite ready to go, so this gives us a little time to grieve Texie, but these little guys will be coming to live with us relatively soon, likely next Wednesday. I miss Texas so bad. But once we've recovered a bit, these two will be able to help us continue to recover, I think. We will be giving them new names, most likely. Yes, this is a blurry shot. They are only 10 weeks old,so they are sort of perpetually moving. I'm sure we'll get better shots once they move in- the shelter lady brought them over today so she could see our home and we could see if the cats were excessively interested in birds. The kittens did not seem dead set on eating our birds, and they are just amazingly adorable, so we put the deposit down today and should be getting them in a few weeks.

UPDATE: The kitties will indeed be getting their own blog. I haven't made it yet because 1- they aren't here yet, and 2- since we don't even know what to name THEM, I don't have a CLUE what to name their blog yet. So their blog will be here temporarily, and once they get named and settled in, I will link to their new blog from this site here.

UPDATE # 2: Someone suggested we have a name the cat contest. Although I can't guarantee we will pick a name from the entries, I'm definitely open to getting ideas from you guys, so we will definitely have a contest. I will wait until we get them and I can post some better pics of them, and can tell you about their personalities more, and then we will announce a contest. Also, speaking of contests, they will be running a Funny Picture Contest regularly, maybe not weekly, but at least monthly or biweekly, but it will be on a different day I think, probably Saturday or Sunday, and it won't be for a few weeks after we get them, so we can all grieve Texas and the new guys can get settled in and make their new bloggy.
Now, without further ado, I present....BLURRY CUTENESS!!!

You know, I've always heard when a beloved furriend leaves you, they send in someone new when it is time.
Guess it really is true.
What an adorable little pair of kittens. That is just too sweet.

Great news. It doesn't diminish your love for Texas or replace him. It opens your heart to share your love with others needing some. And they will help with the healing process.

Cute!!!!! Texas would want you to be happy and he'd be proud. The Lap Lady always says when we go to the Bridge she will need kittens right away.

When you love cats, your life is empty without them and the best way to heal a grieving heart is to fill it with love. We know those 2 new darlings will have a wonderful forever home.
