My Babies

so, i've been blogging on here for about 3 years now and i just realized that i've never formally introduced my kids. i know, i know... so rude.

so, to make up for it, i thought i'd give you a close-up of those pics that everyone seemed to like so much when i posted about the frame, along with a proper introduction.

this is jack - the anti-social one:
4 year old siamese mix

well, he's only anti-social toward everyone except for me. he was a feral kitten when we adopted him and we've worked with him quite a bit. he may not be everyone's idea of a perfect cat, because he runs and hides any time he gets scared or if you even walk toward him (that includes me), but once he's in your arms he turns to putty. he never bites and never scratches, no matter what you do to him. he loves to be held like a baby with his paws and head up on my shoulder and when he's laying on the bed and i walk into the bedroom, he flips over and lets me know that he wants me to rub his belly. he eats every meal like it's his last, practically inhaling it. when i drag him out from under the bed to say hi to any visitors we have, his ostrich complex kicks in. he hides his head in the crook of my arm, as if he thinks that if he can't see you, you can't see him. he's my "special" kitty. ;)

this is dexter - mr. personality:
4 year old maine coon/snowshoe siamese mix

he loves everyone, especially jack. he always lets jack eat first, bathes him when he comes out of the litter box, and cuddles with him during nap time. he's also very smart, too smart for his own good. he understands how doorknobs work and if we don't double-check that we close doors completely, he will reach up and paw at it, shaking it enough to open it. occasionally that leads to him pushing the door closed behind himself. if he's ever missing for more than an hour, we know to check each room in case he gets stuck somewhere. he has also figured out that if he scoots the automatic feeder around enough, food will drop out, so he gets a nice little snack. he's such a stinker!

yeah, i've got some pretty cute kids. :)

Your kids are adorable (and pretty hairy) :) Jack just has this look on his face like "What the F do you want?" haha Can you email me your address? I have something for your feet :) sarahjd47@yahoo.com

Awwww! I love them, I am also a cat person, they all have such different personalities!

Baby Hopes said...

This had me laughing! Jack sounds like my Siamese - we even lovingly call her my "ostrich kitty" (even though she's 14 years old). I love cats and how much personality they have! Very cute!

Jack and Dexter are beautiful!!!

I've never met another snowshoe siamese (& seal point siamese mix)!!! My ex and I had one named Mo, he too was very intelligent and too smart for his own good.

I love this post. I think I need to do one like this on my Rusty and Mansi. Thank you for the idea.

Aww too cute! They sound so sweet!

Your babies are cute. I think it's funny how their pictures fit the description of their personalities. Jack looks like he's thinking "Really why are you taking my picture?" while Dexter's all posing for you.

You inspired me to introduce my fur-babies. I've mentioned you in it. Let me know if you'd rather I remove your name and mention.
