After a visit to the Animal Shelter (Animal Welfare League, Ingleside NSW) our family is now the proud owner of 2 lovely little tabby sister kittens.  As named by DS, Cat Woman and Poison Ivy are settling in well and they have been a constant source of companionship to all of us.  Pets as therapy, they are just wonderful to have around.

I think of you often Winnie the Pooh.

Pets are great therapy and I hope they are helping in a small way to bring some smiles to you all.

I m so jealous. Would love to get a pair of kittens.
But with finances the way they are and two dogs I have to wait until the big dog dies. How horrible!

At least DD will be old enough to have fun with them by then.

They are absolutely gorgeous. I am very jealous, intending on adopting a pair of kittens once we settle into our new home (moving once our house is built)

I have even already picked their names - Ella and Toby

Enjoy your kittens, pets bring so much joy!!!!!!

They are just so gorgeous, OP. I LOVE their names. Tabbies are just so full of character, too.

They are gorgeous....I think I am seeing things...but the kitten at the back with the pink or lilac coloured collar seems to have one leg through the collar sad.gif

It could be me though. sad.gif

Yes, she did have her paw through the collar and I fixed her up straight away.  We've kept an eye on them as the collars are just ever so slightly a little large, but we've had no other incidents.

Thanks original.gif
