I have kittens! Got them at noon today. Baby black Hemingways, a boy and a girl.
They spent the afternoon alternating between sleeping in the carrier (which we placed, open, on the bed, with blankets around it; it’s their safe spot/cave right now) and exploring the bedroom and the attached mini-kitchen where their food and litter box are. (It’s not really a kitchen, just an odd little tiled room with a small table, microwave, and mini-fridge.)
We’re keeping them in there for a couple of days before letting them into the rest of the upstairs, and they’re going to stay upstairs until they’re old enough to jump the baby gate (probably 3 weeks, at least). A few minutes ago they ate and used the litter box for the first time. I only had to show them where the box was once. Good babies!
As I said, their Hemingways. Which means they have extra toes. Boycat has thumbs. Literally.
He also makes a silly face when I try to photograph his thumbs.
He’s very adventurous and playful. She’s a bit timid. They’re both very sweet and fairly mellow (relatively, anyway — they are kittens). We don’t have names for them yet. Watch the blog for names and more pics over the next few… uh… decades…. :D
