We're really glad we decided to go ahead and get the kittens almost two months ago.
Our house-sitter called them ridiculous while we were on vacation - and they really are. I'm glad they're siblings and they play and chase and chew and clean and lay on each other! Silly and Little Man occupied the same space, but were so different and didn't really enjoy each other.
They've taken over the house - as only cats can do. They get into and play with everything. They get up when Ching does in the mornings, which means they run all over me and the bed my last hour or so of sleep.
They're also pretty snuggly and in the afternoons when Noah is napping and I watch a little tv, they're usually both on my lap. This will be much nicer in the cold winter!
We were not sure how Noah would do with them. But we hoped as kittens they would adjust to a toddler chasing them. They have. He's doing better. If he's sitting on the sofa with me and they jump up, he'll let them come and sit and not be too loud. He likes to push their ears down. Then again, I think it's cute, too. He'll pet them and say "awww, so cute". When he's more rambunctious, he'll chase them when the go under the sofa or bed and lay on the floor and try to get them. A few times he's tried to pull them out by the tail. Ugh. But, kittens are very sharp and fast, so I don't worry about them too much. As long as he's calm, they'll sit with him and let him pet them.
Noah's been watching the Curious George Christmas episode a lot the past week. We were talking last night and just how much fun it's going to be having a Christmas tree this year with Noah AND the cats. Sigh. (We haven't had one before.)
