How perfect is this? Less than a week before Halloween, and look, LOOK, who shows up on our doorstep.

One absolutely adorable orange girl kitten and one absolutely adorable black boy kitten!

And who are these Halloween treats?

They are Marigold and Poe Starling.  Marigold is on the left, and Poe is on the right.

BUT WAIT!  It gets even better!

WHAT? How can it get any better that this, you ask?  Are there more of them? 

No, it's just the pair of them. But there is more of them, sort of...

BECAUSE THEY BOTH HAVE EXTRA TOES!!   Each paw, both front and back, sport an extra toe,  making a total of 22 toes on each kitten.

Nice mittens, kittens!

  14. Adorable! I am happily surprised to see a new litter so soon, especially one that continues the blepping.

    freckledme, I have a soft spot for orange kittens, too. And an orange female is quite unusual...

    1. I think they are becoming less of a rarity these days. We've had a couple (Millie and Rhoda, and maybe I'm forgetting someone) and I've noticed a lot coming through the shelter. Most recently, a litter of five had three orange girls.

  15. Aww, it's a cute little punkin and a handsome little, uh, bat-boy. And all those mittens should be excellent for batting things around, like sparkle balls. Let the games begin!

  21. My favorite cat colors. If I didn't have an cat-phobic wife I'd love to come get them despite being a few states away.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They are the cutest Halloween kittens! That's cool that they ended up finding you!

    ReplyDelete

  29. Poe is eyeing Marigold's neck quite intently in two of the pictures. You might want to check for itty bitty bite marks the next time you're in the kitten room. XD

  30. If there's anything better than big-toed cats, it's big-toed kittens! Can't wait to see more of this pair.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is much too perfect. So adorable!!! The colours...the toes...the names...Poe's little tongue.

  38. oh my gosh, that takes me back to when our late emdee had her kittens in august 2004. she was a polydactyl torbie and the 2 boys were binx, who is black and tailless with extra thumbs, and our late cas, who was a huge orange teacosy with extra toes front and back.

    may marigold and poe have long happy healthy lives of love and joy and fun!
