Our dogs have a monopoly on the spotlight in our household, but we love our kitties too. I was going through some old e-mails in an attempt to clear out some space (thank you, gmail, for increasing the limit to 10GB!) and found some baby photos I thought I would share!
This here is Ham, somewhere in early 2005. He was the cutest little floofball you ever did see. We found him through a listing in the newspaper (newspaper.. do those still exist?) and he is ½ persian, ½ random barn cat.
Here he is all grow'd up. Still a handsome devil!
We got Punkin in late 2005, and I couldn't limit myself to just one of his baby photos. He was such a cute little brat! When we brought him home, Ham hated him. It was a chorus of hisses and growls in our condo.. for precisely 2 days. On the third day, I turned around at my desk to find this. They have been best friends ever since.
I hate it when the weather is bad and their fur gets wet because they're so hard to dry. Thankfully, I found the best cat dryers on the market and now I don't worry too much about drying their fur for hours.
We never could explain what made Ham go from absolute hatred to absolute infatuation in just 2 days.. but he was crazy about his lil orange man.
.. and here's Mister Orange Man now. He may be a clumsy oaf with chronic rhinitis (you don't want your cat to have this.. ugh.. my poor house) but he's a sweet lil guy.
