Kitten Wednesday 01.16.13

Over the past two weeks, the kittens have slowly been taking over our home:

(and they LOVE to lay on the alligator. So cute!)

They also enjoy climbing around the bathroom (that is Yoda sitting in the sink!)

 Or, they will spend their time snuggling on our dining chairs.

Have a great Wednesday!

Kitten Wednesday: Eating!

Welcome to the first 2013 installment of Kitten Wednesday 🙂

I don’t think my husband and I knew how much we loved pets until we met our three little guys. They have brought so much love and happiness into our lives. They make us laugh with just about everything they do!

Even while eating, they  make us laugh. I took a few photos over the weekend to show how adorable they look:

I don’t know what it is, but they look so funny facing opposite directions.

At first they ate out of the same bowl, but we soon realized that was not going to work for long. Someone (Yoda) was eating much more than the other two and in a way “bullied” the other two away from the bowl. So now they each have their own bowl and that seems to have solved the issue.

They currently use the ceramic bowls featured on A Pet’s Life®. Although they bowls seem a bit big for kittens, we know Yoda, Buddy and Sheldon will grow into them just fine.

Holiday Pet Photo Links

A few days ago, I came across an article on the Today Show’s blog. Viewers had sent in photographs of their cats in Christmas trees. I had to laugh because when our kittens first starting exploring our home, they went crazy for our Christmas tree! I wish I had gotten a better picture, but here is Yoda hanging out in the tree:

We ultimately had to put the tree upstairs in a room that they cats didn’t have access to. But it sure was funny to see all three of them hanging from branches 🙂

Here is the link to the Christmas Tree cats as well as a few other winter/holiday related pet links:

Kitten Series: Name Announcements

We have decided on some names for our little angels. Read HERE to learn more about how they came into our lives.

Meet Sheldon:

A Pet's Life Sheldon Kitten



and Buddy:


We originally thought about naming them a “group” name, like Larry, Curly and Moe, but we decided to pick names that actually suit their personalities. And, my husband loves Star Wars, so I knew I could not argue with the name Yoda 🙂
