Your weekly update on Lena and Lori



Bet you can't tell who is who.. :) I only know because I took the photos and I knew before hand. Lena has white on one foot and Lori is bigger. Lena also has a bit of a rust cast to her fur as well so in person it is a lot easier to tell them apart... well easier being the keyword..

I know you all think it would be nice if they could be adopted together, but man two kittens that look so much a like might be hard for someone. I will admit I am hoping they go together too because I took them to work with me last week and they got separated when my co-workers each held one and then put them down and they each ran off in separate directions. A few minutes later there was a chorus of pathetic mews until they found each other.  They also stuck next to one another for the rest of the morning. I think they would adjust if separated but I've already mentioned to the shelter I think they should try - and hopefully... although watching Lori lay down and watch Lena eat when they are both hungry is enough for me to be okay with them being separated.

I've also told the shelter they are ready to go. I am not ready for them to go, and I wish I could keep them here longer, but they are three+ pounds at this point and I have exposed them to as much as I can. If they are to have any further progress in becoming fully well rounded kittens they are going to need to have new experiences. I am doing what I can, trying to expose them to new things and new cultures..


I just love the wide circular eyes on these two..  Just so you know, they aren't freaked, they really want the toy I was waving around..

Yes Faraday, that is a Hanukkah Harry..


I was curious if they made such a thing after you mentioned it a few times and the only one I could find was on Etsy. I laughed so hard when I saw it that I could not not buy it.. so buddy, this one is for you..


speaking of new experiences.. we are working on something else on them.. but more on that on Thursday.. I'd tell you tomorrow but I've got a good Wordless Wednesday post coming..

  1. They are so precious! I bet you will be sad to have to hand them back to the shelter for the new home(s) that I know must be waiting out there for them.

  2. It's so good of you to raise your kittens with TWO faiths!

  3. Katnip Lounge is right... you're raising truly well-rounded, multicultral kittens! We LOVE the Hanukkah Harry. The head peep has discovered that no one she knows ever heard of him, so she's sharing his story. But a Hanukkah Harry cat toy? Priceless!

  4. They're absolute precious little babies. We're sending purrs that they find a wonderful forever home TOGETHER! (Okay, separate fabulous homes is okay, but always better together!)

  7. I could look at pictures of these two all day long. They are so lucky to have had you - you've done so much for them!! I know you will be sad to see them go, but at least you can let them go knowing that you have helped them tremendously. Whoever adopts them will be very lucky!!!

  9. Great job nurturing them! If someone adopts both they could get different colored collars. I love Hanukkah Harry- you should market it like the elf on the shelf.

    1. There actually IS an Elf on the Shelf for Hannukah - a friend of ours created it and he's in east-coast cities this holiday for the FIRST time! He's - ready for it? The Mensch on the Bench. We kid you not.

  12. Glad you explained how you can tell these two balls of floof apart. We sure can't. Even so, it sounds as if it would be good if they could stay together. Good luck with facilitating that. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
