A Lovey-Dovey Duo

Olly and Darla

Weeeeelllll, it's almost that time again. The kittens have crossed that two pound mark. Shots, micro chipping and blood draws are scheduled for tomorrow. Snippity-snip surgery is next week. Benny and Arthur have found their home, but we still need to find some lovely folks to adopt this duo.

They are adorable (obviously), but what makes these kittens extra special is their uber-cuddliness. They love nothing more than napping on humans. And while they nap, they've got their motors turned up to eleven. It's quite endearing. It's also quite warm. Leave that throw on the back of your couch. Turn down your thermostat. Don't put that extra log on the fire. These kittens promise to keep you warm this fall and beyond!

Now, they do a lot more than nap. When they're not sleeping, they romp, wrestle, explore and create all sorts of kitten mischief. Especially Darla. They are delightful to watch.

I really would prefer to send the twins off together. Kitties need company. So if you live in the Seattle/Tacoma area and need a pair of lovey-dovey kittens, please shoot me an email. If you're not in the market, perhaps you know someone who is, so please spread the word!

  1. Little doubt in my mind that these two will find a happy home together. Laurie, you should also add to their resume that Charlene Butterbean taught them Cat 101, Cat 102, and an Advanced Cat Practicum.

  2. Wish I were there - I'd take them quicker than switching tail!

  3. And it looks like one will have green eyes and the other yellow. Adorable!!!!!!

  4. Though I'm far too far away to adopt Darla and Olly, I'm warmed by the thought that they will be adopted out together. The third-from-the-bottom photo of the kitty paws pressed together with the white mitts showing should be a card, just in case you were considering a new series. ;)

  5. Surely some loving hooman would like a matching set!

  6. Gawd who wouldn't want these adorable kittens? It seems like you just got them! I hope you have lots and lots of pictures. Your blog is my favourite (with a u because I'm Canadian. ;) )

  7. So happy for Arthur and Benny. I'm sure Darla and Olly will find their furever home soon. Who could resist these two?

  8. Just love the white whisker/eyebrow/toe combo! We have a couple babies like this in our shelter right now. Not as fluffified at these two though :D

  9. Oh, the lucky person who gets this set! The purrfect pair!

  10. Two whole pounds! :) These are such beautiful beautiful kitties - someone will be very lucky and very blessed.

  11. Oh, they are so adorable, sleeping with those tiny little paws you just want to touch! :)

    I am so going to be an old cat lady :D

    Cheers!

  12. Hard to imagine they aren't already spoken for.

  13. I so would love to have these two... Pity I can't not in the same country as them... :(

    Still I do hope they find a forever home!

  14. White paws together, prayin' for a home!

  15. With autumn approaching, who could resist such an eco-friendly pair? They're sure to reduce the heating bill of whatever loving home they go to.

    And glad to know this duo gives their all, turning it up to one louder than ten. Rock on!

  16. Any chance they could get passports and emigrate??? Australia is a great place to live ;)

  17. Now I know what you go through every batch of kittens - so lovely, and so needing a home! My first-ever fostered kitten is nearly ready, and I'm beginning to wonder if he'll be adopted soon. It's nerve-wracking!

  18. Sigh. I really need to move to Seattle.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gah! Cuties! Are they allowed to cross the border to Canada? I can actually drive to Seattle from my home in 3 or 4 hours, but it's the crossing of an international border that has prevented me from inquiring about previous Itty-Bitties. There's something special about these 2, though.

  20. One of these times I'm going to have to beg and plead with you to let me fly out and adopt a kitty (or twelve!). I hope that this duo gets to spend their forevers together!

  21. Is it the lighting? Backgrounds? SUBJECTS? Your pictures are absolutely IRRESISTIBLE! I hope it's some consolation that there are millions of people who love all your babies (although sad that we're all too far away to fetch them home).

  22. Oh we so need to move to Washington! I would so adopt them both if I was nearby!! I am going to mention them to my uncle (who is in Lacy - I don't talk to him often) tonight when I talk to him - don't know if it will help but it can't hurt.

  23. Oh I am love especially after the photo with the paws clasped together while sleeping. I just love the tuxxie kitties! Sylvester would not be amused if I brought in two more though. He says the other cat, Mia is enough. If I owned a house, I would snap up these faster than a whisker twitch.

  24. Laurie--why must you torture me so by saying we have to live in the Seattle/Tacoma area? I'm sure these lovelies would be extremely happy being east coast kitties!

  25. Sweet paws in prayer!

    Darla & Olly together would be awesome for someone. Alas, my two would find ways to express their revenge....I dare not

  26. R.E. Lydia's question above, I don't know how you feel about sending cats internationally, Laurie, but it is very easy to bring cats, especially young ones, into Canada.

    When I moved to Canada I brought my two [adult] ones in from the U.S. with just a health certificate and statement proving rabies shots were current. But there are also lots of adorable homeless cats up here...so it is a win-win either way.

  28. I wish I lived closer! I would take them home with me in a heartbeat. Miss Katia would love to have some friends to play with who actually want to play. Jack is more of a play supervisor.

  29. seriously, the last pic is just SOOOOOOO darn cute

    ReplyDelete
  30. REALLY wish I was on the west coast! I'd adopt the both of them in a heartbeat!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wish we could get them to the UK, we'd have them in a heartbeat, seriously!

    If I was at my two cat limit, I would fly up to there and take them home with me. They are adorable and I am surprised they haven't been snatched up yet.

    I meant if I wasn't at my two cat limit. Hit submit too fast.
