I packed the boys up yesterday, and we headed to the Humane Society for an appointment with the vet. They actually seemed to enjoy the ride and both perched near the front of the carrier so they could peek out the window. There were no cries along the way. No stressed kittens. Just two happy travelers with wide-open eyes.
Doc wanted to do a re-check and see if their URIs were clearing up. They're doing good, but still a wee bit sniffly. Once they finish this round of antibiotics, they should be 100%, which means they should be all better before quarantine is up. Thank goodness! They are itching to get out of the kitten room, and Wylla and Charlene are very excited to meet their new boyfriends! I can hardly wait! The girls are going to LOVE these boys.
Now that you've seen a few photos of the boys, can you tell them apart? I converted a few photos to black and white because I think it's a little easier to see their features this way. As I mentioned before, their bodies are quite different, but their faces are similar, which makes it hard to identify them in photos. In the photo above, Mose is on the left and Sidney is on the right.
This is Mose below.

And this is Sidney. When he gets excited, he gets poofy.
This is Sidney.
And this is Mose.
And here's Sidney once again.
It's hard isn't it? I think Sidney's chin might be slightly narrower than Mose's and his eyes might be a tad further apart. I'll try to get a few more side-by-side pictures over the next few days so we can do a little more comparing!
Quick update on Wylla before we go today: She had an appointment with her vet too --they wanted to check her urine again to see if her bladder infection had cleared. I'm happy to report they found zero bacteria in the sample, so she is officially all better now! We were thrilled to hear this news and hope this was an isolated incident and won't be a reoccurring problem with her.
