The Mittenflosses!! Those Glorious Mittenflosses!!
It feels like the fabulous Mittenfloss boys weren't here all that long ago, but those cuties will be turning one year in just a couple of weeks.
I've stayed in close contact with Sara, their mama, so I've been able to keep my eyes on their antics. You'll see in the update that follows, the boys are gorgeous, charming and highly entertaining --- just like they were as wee kittens.
Here's what Sara had to say about the Mittenflosses:
Both are have medium length coats but for some reason, their tails are incredibly fluffy!!! Its one of my favorite trails about them. Both are very shy with visitors and are obsessed with the shower/water. Their favorite toy is the fur mouse from Mud Bay. They actually run around with the mouse in their mouths growling (they each get one but of course, they want the same one). They also like crumpled-up receipts... They've already starred in their own magazine spread (see photos below) and have their own Instagram following. Turns out when I'm doing a photo shoot, they absolutely MUST tear through the set and destroy things.
Renamed since Fielding! was hard to shout because it turns out, he is the mischievous one of the batch. He stands half-way behind doors brooding, so Mr. Darcy was a perfect fit for him. He's slender and chatters more than meows. His little tabby stripes are starting to show too. He LOVES to play fetch with his mouse and is a huge snuggler that just licks and nuzzles all night long. He sleeps on my chest or curled up like a teddy bear on my side every night. I also cannot tie my shoes without his assistance. For some reason, I call him Darcy-cakes. No clue why. Like I said before, he's the troublemaker.
Never, ever would I have thought I'd have a cat that makes me actually LAUGH at much as Bart. He has the most expressive, concerned face. He's also a cuddler. He doesn't sleep with me every night but sometimes I'll catch him at the foot of the bed. However, when I'm awake, he is my lap cat. If I get up, he follows me. He's my little shadow. His favorite way to lay is on his back with his tubby belly showing or propped up with his legs out, sitting like a person. He's very, very tubby... we're working on that :) When he's not eating, he's chasing raindrops streaming on the outside of the window, or eyeing my Dr. Pepper, trying to catch the carbonated bubbles. He's a true Seattle techie and likes to type on the computer or watch me work. He never gets in trouble -- but he does follow Darcy into mischief.
I am so, so thankful every day that they came as a pair. They are both wonderful babies individually, obviously, but they love each other so much and its adorable seeing that love.
These boys were always so photogenic, and their stay with us was well-documented. Please visit the archives for more of their cuteness, and be sure to read their adoption tale HERE.
Thanks for sharing your boys with us today, Sara. And thanks for loving them so much! It's so nice to see how much joy these boys bring you every single day!
