Meet 5 month old Sabina, and 11 week old Owen! Both are
black and long haired, but Sabina has a white diamond on her chest, and
Owen has charcoal grey tips on the fur on his cheeks and belly.
We've wanted another cat for a long time, but with our older cat, Zimu,
other adult cats just haven't worked out, she's cranky and they fight
her. Our vet recommended we get a pair of kittens. Kittens are less
territorial and set in their ways, and two will keep each other
entertained and not bother her. So far, Zimu has been a bit grumpy and
hisses when the kittens get too close, but for the most part, all has
been well. The kittens just stay out of her way and play with each
other. They've become best mates.
The local Humane
Society had a kitten/cat adoption sale last week...only $5 per feline!
It was the perfect time for us to find these little ones. We spent 4
hours at the animal shelter, playing with kittens, trying to
find the ones that played well with each other, and bonded well with
us. Jane picked out the little boy Owen (and named him), and
then we found the little girl, and Carson suggested the name Sabina (I
liked it and thought it
fit her perfectly). We didn't initially want black cats, let alone two
of them, but their personalities won us over.
Sabina is a
curious little girl, although a little shy at first. She's claimed me
as her human, and begs quite often to be held. Owen is possibly one of
the most complacent, docile cats I've ever seen. I think he might have a
bit of the Rag Doll cat in him. He's sweet, purrs almost all the time,
and is floppy (if that makes any sense) and relaxed always. Jane
carries him around like a doll everywhere, and he is content letting
her. We are in love with our new babies!
I've shot a
short video of them...please excuse the silly music, it was either that,
or the sound of a cartoon in the background. Jane thought the music
sounded like cats singing, so that's what we went with!
