    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    We purchased these two kittens (full siblings - same litter) back in late November (you may remember the thread [​IMG] )...but we weren't able to pick them up until last week (breeder lives 700 miles away and we didn't want the kittens shipped).

    We are THRILLED with them! They are absolutely perfect!

    This is Penny (Brittasweet A Small Fortune) she is an absolute doll and probably our future champion [​IMG] -

    ....and this is Cooper (registered name still undecided)...he is a cuddly MESS! Just love him!

    It's hard to tell...but Cooper is about 1/3 larger than Penny - he seems HUGE next to her!

    Oh man I would have given you one for FREE. My daughter rescued a kitten last week. We just don't want another animal of any sort. We have what we can manage and the our big kitty is freaked out. Anyone else interested?????

    Thanks, you guys! We just love them!!! I'll try and take/post a few more pictures when I get home tonight.

    As for free/rescue kittens - my husband would be quick to point out that there is no such thing as a "free" pet....especially those that have been rescued - they are usually bundled together with costly health issues!!!

    Here are the other cats in our family - these live in our barn -

    Our free cat, Baker (the lady who had him as an 8wk old kitten was "Baker Acted" and he was left to fend for himself outside (she later went to prison). He was $600 in medical bills due to FIV and a URI -
    [​IMG]

    Our 2nd & 3rd free cats were both pregnant (and less than a year old)...they gave us 13 more kittens between the two of them - we found homes for all but two. These two cost about $800 in vaccines for them & their kittens - plus a spay for the two of them and the other two we kept.

    This is Olivia (Mom #1)

    This is Gracie (Mom #2)

    This is Chilli (free kitten #1)

    This is Lola (free Kitten #2)

    And then this is Frosty - our 5 year old British Shorthair (house cat)

    And theis is Tugger - our 6 year old British Shorthair (house cat) -
