Adorable!

Well, these kittens aren't getting any less cute!  And their personalities are becoming even more endearing as they grow up.  They are five months and two days old today!

They love the laundry basket.

Stephen likes straddling the top of the couch.  He can keep an eye on what's going on over a wide acreage.  

This picture is tiny because it was taken with Christie's cell phone and compressed, but I LOVE it.  Stephen is tasty and silly and sweet.  Kittens are just like candy.  (Only they have fewer calories!)

Almost every time anyone in the house sits down, Allistair is on top of that person.  We enjoy his people-oriented personality!

Close-up:

 He likes to be on top of us even when we're not sitting on the couch . . . sometimes he needs Daddy so much that he has to curl up on Daddy's slippers!

This was done by a small white kitten . . . named Destroy-O!

Stephen sitting by the sliding-glass door.  I want to kiss his long elegant nose.  He comes from a long line of aristocracy!

Sweet face!

Hope you all are having a GREAT weekend and that you have cute fuzzy snuggly people in your house, too!

Cat-A-Licious!

Christie says that Stephen & Allistair are the most people-oriented kittens she has ever known.  This is amazing, considering that they were born in a rosemary bush in the front yard and spent their first few weeks full of fleas and with raging eye infections.  Stephen was especially affected - he was very shy and hissed and spit at everyone who came anywhere near him.  Click here to see the very first post about Allistair and Stephen.  Click on the video that says, "Here's a story!"  You'll hear how we found Madge's litter of kittens (Allistair, Judith, Lionel, and Stephen) and how we rescued them.  Click here for the first photos of them!

Now they both start yelling, "EEP!" if they can't find us and come running when we come through the door.  ADORABLE!  (Though I admit that cooking is challenging because Allistair wants to "help"!)

Allistair also enjoys exploring new and exciting destinations!  Here is an example: the shopping bag hanging from the kitchen chair!

Rawr!!


And now I'll just sit here and look cute!

It's my own personal indoor hammock!

I have many fans.  They like it when I pose for them.

And Daddy thinks I'm cute, too!

Of course, there are many cute moments throughout each day!

Stephen got under the fuzzy blankie and cuddled in.  

Here's me!  Christie caught me giving her lovey-dovey eyes and quick snapped a photo.  I enjoy hanging off the edge of the couch like a monkey.
