New cats

This is my first obligatory cat post.

A week ago, after a necessary feline hiatus of more than a decade, our family picked up two kittens that were on track to become barn cats otherwise. These are a couple of males from the same litter and are probably 3 months old, so they are getting closer to adult size but still behave like kittens. Without futher ado, let’s get to the pictures.

These two are likely to be fantastic mousers. The toy mouse that would have been hanging down in the second picture was ripped apart within a few minutes. Unfortunately for our budgerigar, they seem to have a very healthy interest in birds, too. Healthy, that is, unless you happen to be a parakeet. (We have not yet seen how they react to bats.)

Before anyone asks: No, I did not name these cats.
