Day Two

The lads have been acclimating to the house, and to Mycah's presence... as much as they can, under the door.

They are a pair of serious nose-poker-inners. Here are their first few moments of freedom:

They made a break for it today — when I went in to feed them, they bolted through the open door. Mycah was right behind me, though, and the boys were startled enough to dash across the hall into the bathroom rather than down the hall and to the rest of the house.

In my somewhat debilitated physical condition, I was unable to wrangle them into their bedroom. Fortunately, they are young and as yet not jaded by shiny things, so the laser spot was successfully employed to lure them back into their room.

I think I have names for them. A few have been floating through my head, some relating to my chosen profession, but they aren't all geeky... unless you count my having been a Korean linguist as geeky.

OK, bad example. Linguists are very nearly the biggest geeks in the Army.

A couple more days. In the meantime, they're being referred to as "buddy" and "fluffy boy." They really are quite a pair.

They are pretty cute... but then I'm partial to tuxies.

I suppose one of them is poofy enough to rival Kim Jong Il.

We think thy're going to be very, very happy kitties once they realize how wonderful it is to have a forever home! Of course, we already think these 2 Tuxie gray boys are very, very cute; a short-haired like Gandalf a long-haired like Grayson! What's not to love? We can't wait to know their names!

They look great - I'm sure their names will be just perfect for them!
