Rose and Mr. Mulliner

Okay, here's a better photo of the two new Buckley kittens. They are great companions, and so far they are unusually polite for tiny felines. My older dog and cat were initially disdainful, but even they are being won over by the inevitable cuteness of the new kits.

I'm wondering if sooner or later they'll nudge their way into something that I'm writing. Generally I write kitten-less fiction, but I guess there's a first time for everything. They say write what you know, and I'm coming to know some adorable things about small felines. :) In addition, they're both quite smitten with the computer desk and the glowing monitor. Here is photo evidence:
Anyway. I'll continue monitoring their behavior for a while, and then I'll post something that ISN'T about kittens. :)

That's OK, Julia. Rose and Mr. Mulliner are adorable. I'll take a couple more days of kitten postings. And, even if they don't worm their way into your writing, sounds like they've already wormed their way into the household.

Thanks, Lesa! It is true, they've taken over. Now I'll be constantly on pet smell patrol. :)

Neat. Our cat Sabrina just got off my lap. I remember her as a kitten -- almost 18 years ago. So you have some long time buddies there.

Old cats are sweet and loveable. And you know what Robert Frost wrote: "The old dog barks backward without looking up; I can remember when he was a pup."

That's the story of all of my pets (except these two).
