Did anyone wonder why, on Friday, I said things were coming in pairs? Or about the errand I had planned for Saturday morning? Well...meet the boys.
Cooper is super affectionate. You MUST use both hands to pet him. One just isn't enough.
Murphy is very loving but doesn't cuddle with the same zeal.
They are 2 year old brothers adopted from the local humane society.
I simply could not live without a cat (or two) for another day. Until our last kitty died, I'd never been without a cat in my adult life. We were seeing how it felt but it wasn't working. I wanted two so they would have each other for company. Most often, we had two cats which was nice.
They were owned by a young man who felt it was OK to abandon them when he moved. Luckily, someone cared enough to take them to the humane society where they were the favorite resident cats. It made the staff very happy that we adopted both of them.
Their previous owner, while irresponsible, treated them OK. They LOVE my son. They both latched onto him immediately. Oh, the purring.
While I know it might have been a good idea to wait until after the chaos of the holiday, we also thought that having 2 weeks with people in the house would be good for them.
It should be a fun time.
