Our babies




Ok everyone knows we got the kittens back in September, and they quickly became our babies! It has been mentioned that I am somewhat BIASED in my affection of the kitties, that I cater much more to Julio than I do to Lil Bit, but I have to disagree with that. After all, Lil Bit was the kitten I chose, Julio was Marissa's choice. Lil Bit was my prize scrapbook subject. I could take picture after picture of her and the flash never woke her up or seemed to annoy her. (That's how we ended up bringing home TWO kitties, by the way, she was destined to be the subject of many scrapbook layouts) But Julio, poor Julio.....well, he just ain't right. Poor fellow, he is sweet, but he is one taco short of a combination plate. A few bricks shy of a load. Not the sharpest tool in the shed. He needs me. And he is much more affectionate than his sister, although since their surgery they have both been more loving. This worries me...if Julio gets much more affectionate he will SMOTHER me during the night. He already sleeps on my head!

Anyway, last night after Marissa and Julio took their shower (he gets in the tub remember?) she brought him out and showed us that she had taught him.....are you ready for this??? She taught him to drink from a baby bottle. I grabbed my camera and got some cute shots of him and his sister happily lapping up water from a plastic doll bottle. If you look closely you can see a little bit of pink tongue on the bottle. Julio tries to hold the bottle. Lil Bit is content to let Marissa do the work! How funny is this?????? By the way, Julio is in the first picture and Lil Bit is in the second one. I guess I should have reversed those to prohibit appearing like I am showing favoritism huh????

Why that is just the Cat's pajamas...the feline in the fancy the .......the purfect life. I do however think it is cat abuse that you are clearly encouraging Julio's needy tendencies.....He is going to look silly in kindergarten with a pacifier..I am concerned!

Nice but dogs are soooooooo much better then crazy old cats. They are always happy to see you,always waiting at the door with a tail wagging. and love you know matter what. There are a few draw backs. Some times they are not to smart(ie a lab mix that tries to lay in the window sill. that didn't work out to good) and they lick them selves(alot) but other than that they are preety cool. Try one or 3.......
