cute-a-rama

this evening the family dinner was punctuated by cries of 'ow' and 'no' because we have been joined by two young gentlemen of a furry disposition.

nero and max (short for pont max, short for pontifex maximus, which we saw plastered over almost every building in rome) were rescue kitties, found at melbourne animal rescue.  they were being fostered by two of the kindest people i have ever met - kathy and wayne - who foster unwanted dogs and cats, treat them with love and respect and then hand them over to new families. it is a measure of how well kathy and wayne treat their animals that nero and max are completely relaxed, not shy or fearful at all.

in fact they have taken over the house in the 24 hours they have been here.
they are quite tricky to photograph as they move like small rockets
but they enjoyed the dishwasher long enough to get some unblurry shots

Looks like you will have to check the oven, tumble dryer and the dishwasher before you turn them on (and perhaps keep the loo seat down). I love how they are into everything (and I love it when they grow out of that phase, lols)

*gasp* Soooooooooooooo adorable. Kittens are the best fun.

Oh my gosh, our kittens are now four and we're so glad! (That kitten stage is hard to live through - but goes better when they have each other to entertain each other!)

They're adorable.

Congrats on your new family members!

They are so cute. All my cats are slowing down as I realised that all are now over 10 years old. How did that time go so quickly? Lots of happy times ahead x
