Lily is their lovely tabby girl.
And Blackberry is their handsome tuxedo boy.
They're both awfully dear kittens, and are so good with the kids. We brought the Lily and Blackberry some new toys and enjoyed watching them scamper across the wood floors, chasing after their gifts.
Our friends Jay (of poster fame) and Anne joined us too and brought their pups, Lucky Joe and Murray.
Lucky Joe is truly one of the luckiest dog you'll ever meet. He's from Puerto Rico, and lived in a rescue for five years before he was adopted by Jay and Anne, who were vacationing in Vieques last spring. Now, he's living the good life in Seattle.
Of course you all remember Murray - he's visited us on many occasions. We love Murray - he's such an awesome dog.
Wylla came with us and she did say hello to the kittens and pups, but didn't spend anytime mingling with them. With all the animals, we thought it might be best to separate the different parties so everyones (felines, canines and humans too) anxiety was kept to a minimum. Wylla enjoyed roosting on top of the piano.
It was such a great visit with our favorite people and pets! Thanks for your hospitality, Eileen and Matthew!
