Jupiter and Junon

Postby NannyP » 18 Aug 2014, 15:47

We're very happy to announce the arrival of new kittens =D> =D>

Jupiter male (grey and white) and Junon female arrived this morning.

Junon was born with her front left leg missing.

In France animals are named using the letter of the year, this year it's J. It's not an obligation, but many people follow the rule and it certainly helps when estimating/remembering what year your pet was born.

They were born in May, and I estimate they're between 12-14 weeks old. They're currently confined to the middle bedroom and I can hear then pattering around. They've decided the safest place, is the most inaccessible for us, inside the box base of the "click clack", a fold down sofa bed.

Envy, in all it's glorious green. We decided when our last cat died that we dare not have another trip hazard. At least when you fall over a Labrador, neither you nor the dog are more than just bruised.

I think they are cute too :)

This morning, after shredding my bare leg, here they are looking at the territory they'll be using in a few weeks time :grin:

toooooooo sweet! I'd forgotten the tradition of naming animals according to the year! They look like bundles of mischief ... where did you get them from? Was it a rescue home?
my chooks: Sage&Onion, Roger the randy cockerel, Squawkbox, Bonnie 'N' Clyde, Pancakes, Custard, Omelette & EggNog. Plus four garden cats and another half dozen feral ones that I feed. And a nursery of pipistrelle bats in the verandah roof ..

We went for a meal with our boss (we work at Restos du Coeur during the week). He had 5 in a bedroom, all ready to rehome. As you know, the French don't sterilise/neuter their cats, so these were born to a feral/stray cat.
We had vaguely wondered about more cats, and persuaded ourselves that we wouldn't get more when our existing cat dies. Best laid plans and all that. Take me into a room with kittens and I am done for :lol: :lol:

Note bushy tail, he'd just met the dog :) (My daughter's dog).

I'd forgotten how energetic and mad kittens are. At least we can contain them when we need/ want to.

They've been really good, although I have just caught someone peeing on the spare dog bed that dog and Greebo use. It's not the first time it's been pee'd on :|
Other than that, they're gorgeous and I can put up with scratched arms for a while.

Thanks for all your likes and comments. I am sure I'll add more photos, I find it hard not to.
