Awww the boys are gorgeous!  ;D
Even if they did both discover a love for biting/licking my fingers  :Crazy: :evillaugh:

Ali and Craig make a good meowmy and dad - the babies have only been there 2 days and have TONS of toys including a monkey on a stick  :rofl:
Can't believe I didn't take any pictures, not like me at all  :evillaugh:

T, I think Phil is in love with Pippa  :Luv:

Alison
Pippa is sending you big hugs for giving the boys a home and freeing up a Pen for her; I am sure Dawn C. is busy telling you how very happy she is now.
Give the boys a big hug from me.

Do they wake you up during the night?  :evillaugh:

They did a bit late night, just becuase we could hear them running about. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper though, so it isn't a big problem. Craig on the other hand...

Hi Alison so pleased they are using their tray  :evillaugh:

We have had the boys for almost a year now and Widget is still very wary of people. Guinness on the other hand is a tart  :tired: and falls at the feet of anyone that will give him a fuss or tummy rub  :naughty:

It will take time for them to get used to you and their surroundings  :hug:

Great that they are running about playing  ;D

Oooh thatnks I'll have a good read of those!


They are currently running round the house like crazy.  ;D They are so cute when they are playing. They are still a little unsure of us though. They are eating well though and all the pees and poos are going in the right place. (I hope I don't speak too soon!  ;))

The lint roller is my new best friend.

Tachi is being more social now, but Vader has taken to hiding under my computer table. Hopefuly he'll come out again soon.

Awww they are gorgeous!!!  :Luv:

Congratulations Ali, you are a meowmy of two  ;D

Hope Tachi and Vader are settling in well today, I had to coax mini Cheese out of the carrier with food at first, it will take a bit of time with all the new smells etc but they will be less nervous when they are used to their new "parents"  :)

So excited for you - although you now realise that black or white clothing is out of the question?  :rofl:

Hello again.  :hi:

We've decided to call them Tachi (Toby) and Vader (Oliver). You can tell who picked which name.  :rofl: As they sounds quite similar to their orginal names, we are hoping they will take to them ok.

They were so good during the car ride home from Paws Inn. I was really surprised. Craig sat in the back with the carrier to keep them company.

When we got them in, Vader got out and had a good nose around then decided to hide under my computer table. Tatchi stayed in the carrier for a good hour before I made a fuss of him. He still hasn't left the kitchen yet though. It's just going to take a bit of time as they both seem very nervous. I've seen on a website that reading to them might help so I'm going to try that.

As requested here are some pics of the gorgeous twosome.

Hi Ali

Well done, you have TWO babies!!! (snigger)

I don't think its too bad changing their names, they are young still. Pippa, Guinness and Widget's sister and my beautiful furry niece, kept her name. My sister loved it and thought it suited her personality. Naught and cheeky. And we call her Pipsqueak too  :evillaugh:  the boys will adjust, though I do have to say I love their names now  :Luv:

Yay welcome to the world of becoming a cat slave owner  :evillaugh:

Sounds as if they are making themselves at home already  ;D

As for changing their names, I doubt if it would confuse them. I adopted Guinness and Widget from the wonderful Paws Inn and they had several names before we settled on the ones they have now  :evillaugh: Plus, as my boys are so alike, I often call them by the wrong name  :-[  :evillaugh:

Can't wait to see the pics and congrats again   :Flowers:

Well Toby and Oliver have been with us for a few hours now and are starting to settle down. Oliver has set up camp in the bed in our scratching post and Toby is currently sniffing around the food bowl. We were a little worried at first as he pain refused to come out of the carrier. It's amazing what a bit of time and a toy can do.  :Luv2:

I'll try and take some pictures tomorrow. I didn't want to spook them too much on their first night with us.

We are thinking of chnaging their names as we thought it'd be a nice way to welcome them to the family. Do you think this would confuse them too much though?  :-:

Toby and Oliver are Amelia`s kittens (from the Cupboard cats) and honestly they really are gentle and graceful and really angelic, its my guess they will make wonderful 4am alarm clocks :rofl:

I even remember Pippa having perfect spelling until she went to live down south  :rofl:

As for Guinness and Widget they won a diploma in the art of troublemaking, obviously this has stood them in good stead for keeping their human fit and healthy  :rofl: :rofl:

 :congrats: on adopting Oliver and Toby  :)
Scuse me Aunty Ruth Toby and Oliver are well behaved gentlecats and very well mannered too  :rofl:

Of course they are Auntie T  :evillaugh: just like you told me Guinness and Widget were  :shify:  :rofl:

Of course T.  ;)  I get it.  ;)  Can't be saying different now.. (whisper) let them find out for themselves heh?  :evillaugh:  :rofl:

Pippa says: Aunty T, I was well behaved. I've never tossed my toys all over the house, jumped on the furniture when someone has a cup of tea in their hands, never climbed the curtains (that's true, Guinness did that one), and never woken my mum up.  :rofl:

Guinness says: Sis I know nothing about climbing curtains  :evillaugh: Widge and I are really well behaved we always make sure Mummy doesn't sleep in  :naughty: it's not our fault that when Mummy comes down the stairs and we decide to stop half way down  :naughty: Susan's room needed decorating we were just helping by stripping the paper  :naughty: also we never toss the toys all over the house, chase each other at 3am, spit our worming tablets out when Mummy's not looking ... oooops Mummy's coming back  :naughty: later Sis  :evillaugh:

Alison and Craig congrats on becoming cat slaves owners  :) despite what Guinness says the things that Paws Inn kitties do give you are more trust and unconditional love you can could ever imagine, tears of laughter when they play, the joy when one comes to sit on your lap and purrs ....... the list is endless  :Luv2:

Can't wait to hear all about them and see lots of pics of course  :sneaky:

Craig and I had a lovely time at Paws Inn meeting some of the gorgeous kitties. We wanted to take them all home. Minimopsical is gorgeous!

Craig and I have decided to offer a forever home to Toby and Oliver. We will be picking them up on the 28th, which gives us enough time to get all the necessities that we need for them.

Any tips on welcoming these two gorgeous chaps into our home? OOOooooh I'm so excited!!

 Zooplus is also really good. I have the cat tree that's uses banana leaves to make the baskets. It is a bit more expensive than the others but looks nicer and is quite sturdy. My boys love it. And zooplus deliver really quickly too.
