Strangers – for now.

Well, I finally did it.   As some of you know, my cat that I’d had for about 16 years died back in November.   For the last couple of weeks I’ve been checking the KSL.com classifieds for kittens, and today I got myself a pair.  I got them from a lady that runs a Veterinary Clinic up in Heber, so they both had their shots and were fixed, for a grand total of $20.   In the ad she called them Bo and Luke, my guess after the brothers in the old “Dukes of Hazard” show.   I scrapped the names, but kept the concept – Denny and Alan.  Might have something to do with me watching my “Boston Legal” DVDs this week.  Not sure which is going to be which yet, got to get to know them a little better first.   Anyhow, here’s a few pictures I took of them with the new Nikon D3100: I’m already noticing their different personalities.  I was sitting on the floor getting pictures of them when one of them came up and laid in my lap.  He sat there, letting me pet him, for about a half hour while the other cat roamed around the house exploring.
And here’s one last picture, just so you know there really are two of them:

Wow. A new camera and new kittens all in one week. You must be having the time of your life. ;)
(I had to get a new vacuum, but it's actually not a whole lot of fun and I'm not taking any pictures of it.)

Yeah, somehow a vacuum just doesn't seem as much fun as either cats or a camera. But I still think you ought to take pictures of it and post them. But, thanks for making me laugh anyway :)

aww so sweet! yes,all cats have very different personalities. My current cat is so lovely and patient with my 2 yr-old grand-daughter. The previous 2 would have headed for the hills, after scratching her arm off!

Yeah, my last cat wouldn't sit still for a second. But these two, I was laying there on the couch watching "Boston Legal", and after a couple minutes demanding petting, they just laid down around me and purred.

Oh your life is going to be a happy one now for sure! They can keep each other company while you're away and they can spoil you once your back home! They are just too cute! Life is good!
