HELLO EVERYONE!

I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this, but I hope it is. You see, I'd like to tell you all about my two Kittens, Drizzle and Boo. They're the lights of my life, so I thought I'd share the glow. Hehehe.

Offically, Drizzle is "my" cat, while Boo is my "sister's" cat. In practice, they are both, our babies. :)

We're both first time pet owners. My sister got Boo when she was 9 weeks old, 1 year and 1 month ago. She's 1 year, 3 months old. Boo is a jet-black Burmese (sp?), totally black, all except her tongue and eyes. She's a real beauty. She's quite the little princess, always walking around like a little model strutting down the run way. She's quite vocal to anyone around, and loves attention. She's a bit skittish though, more so than seems normal. My sister's ex was too rough when holding her, and we believe perhaps hit or kicked her some of the time when no one else was home. :evil: Her back bothers her some times, too, and she's afraid of being covered in blankets. All because of him. Thankfully, I am slowly reversing what damage he was able to do. She used to be dis-trustful of any man, and even somewhat of anyone but my Sister, but now she's warmed up, especially to me. She's taken to being my snuggle bug on the couch and can't get enough scratching and petting from me. :) She doesn't play much, anymore, since she was fixed. Though she will play-fight with Drizzle. We know it's not real fighting as the handful of times they've really gotten into fights, we hear it! :shock: Everyone loves Boo. She's a sweetheart. She's almost a show-cat, but has some knicks and cuts that left scars. Two from birth, and a few from playing with Drizzle too roughly.

Boo is the Beauty. But Drizzle is the CUTEY.

His adventures, actions, and escapades are known throughout all of our friends. :D

Drizzle is an American Bi-Color Short Hair. He is primarily Slate/Charcoal Gray, with white. His front paws are white, his back legs to the first joint are white, and his tummy and chest are white. The white runs allllll the way up his chest, to the bridge of his nose, where it tapers off. He has an abudance of whiskers on his adorable little baby-like face. His nose is all pink, except for his left nostril which is gray. Hehe. His white chin is also marked by gray which makes him look like he has a little gotee. :) He is just 8 months old. He has that eternal kitten face: we've seen photos of other cats just like him, perhaps even relatives (markings right down to the spots on nose/chin and such) and every photo of a cat with his colors/face/markings has that life-long "Kitten" cute look. He loves to roll over on his back so you can give him Tummy Time tickles, and he's great at being held like the little baby he is. He's also quite the snugler, and every noise he makes is cute. He can't stand to be seperated from anyone, so if you close a door on him, expect him to cry and cry until you open it! His little cry/meow is so heart wrenching no one can resist it. It sounds like he's saying "WHY!?" in a sad voice. :cry:

Drizzle does many adorable things. He'll sit on the top fourth step, and poke his head and paws through the rails to look down and survey the land. Hehe. He's always rolling over as well, but I mentioned that. Drizzle *loves* to play Fetch! We throw a mousie, or a ball of paper, and off he goes like a bat outta ****! Then he scampers back over like a lion sporting a kill and drops it in front of you to throw again! Before we had him fixed he'd play for upwards of FORTY MINUTES at a time! :shock: Since he was fixed, he'd all but stopped, but just this week began playing for longer durations. Post-fixing it was 3 or 4 throws/returns and he was done. Now we're up to 16-22 throws/returns before he plops down, pooped. It's great to see him play like that again. He also used to play goalie - sitting atop the condo and whacking at the mousie as we threw it inside. He'd fall off as he struggle to get it inside, or if he was down when we threw it, jump in after it, hanging his little tush out of the opening as he batted it around. :D

Drizzle loves to snuggle between someones legs, usually either right up by your butt, or down by your calves. We're not sure why, lol. I think it's where he slept with his Mama, or maybe it's just where he feels most warm and snug and secure. Either way, it's tough getting to sleep without a warm ball of fur breathing on your knees in our house! :D He's also a real purr-er. He used to pur quite loud when sleepy, but has quieted down with age. But when he's wanting some affection and sleepy? That's where my name MrPurryMotors comes from. He'll pur LOUD and CONTINOUSLY till he falls fast asleep.

Boo and Drizzle get along well, though not the best. They have thier fights of course. Sometimes one hogs all the food. Other times, a cooperative bath turns into a chance to take a bite out of the other. More than not, it's play time and fun time for both. They'll snuggle together, play ball together, chase each other, investigate together, hunt a rogue fly together, sit in the window together. Like peas in a pod.

Well, there we have it. The lights of my life. :)

Pictures will be available soon. We sent out two rolls of film to be developed and put on CD as well, so when they get in we'll have them up and on-line in no time. :D

They sound adorable, and sounds like you're completely in love with them...

I know that's how I feel about my little one, Casey, he's a 8 1/2 month old mackerel tabby, and everything he does, I find terribly entertaining... hehe

Cant wait to see the pictures, I have to say that my Twinkie sounds a bit like your Boo, he likes looking like the king that he is, and strutting around. My sugar has white in her also along with grey and she loves to play just like your Drizzle. I must say though that my cats have never been without one another since day one. Best buds even though they do their own thing alot of times.

Seems like you enjoy every little thing that they do, just like me! Sometimes my bf finds it quite amusing also hehe. It seems like you love them very much and hope to see some pics soon! :D

Indeed they are adorable, and indeed I am completely in love. :D

Pictures should be along within a week, or less. We sent out two rolls of film nearly two weeks ago, and got the print-copies of one roll yesterday, so the CD with the digital copies should be along soon after that. I hope. First time getting digital copies, so who knows. The pics of them from that roll are TOTALLY adorable though. You'll all get a big kick and lots of "awwwww!!" moments from them, I promise. Can't wait to see how roll 2 turned out. Roll 1 only had one defunct picture. :)

Well we had Boo from October 2002 to May 2003 alone, and then we got Drizzle. She did not like him at all, let me tell you. We went through the whole hassle of integration and such. He though, liked her right off the bat. He was used to being with other cats - his brothers and sisters - so he was like, "Hi, how're you?" and she was like "HHSSSSSSSS!" lol.

It was not fun for the first week. But as chance would have it, Boo had already been scheduled to be fixed that next week, after we'd had Drizzle only one week. So It made things oddly easier. For the first week she had the run of the house, me in one room alone with him since he was a baby (Boo at the time was used to having the days to herself so it was no bother to her) then he had the house for a week while she was recouperating, and by the third week we began letting them spend time together, supervised, a little bit, and by the fourth week, though she would still growl sometimes as she wasn't used to his presence, she wasn't trying to bite or scratch him anymore, just avoid him. That was the week we let them both have run of the house, though with me home watching them. Week 5 they where fine together and started to play, sit together, eat together, everything. I think Boo began to remember having her brothers and sisters around. Plus, he was nice to her after she was fixed - he even gave her a bath when she was too sleepy to hiss at him, lol. So he had taken care of her a bit while "sick" so she was like "oh, fine, I'll be nice" lol. Ever since, they've gotten friendlier and friendlier. Bath time, and sleeping together if they want. It's nice.

They are a bit competative for attention, but we both just go on a first come, first serve basis, lol, and always go to the next one for the same time after whoever got to us first, hehe. They love to race for hugs. :)

Indeed this is true! Hi, I'm MrPurryMotors' sister... Boo is definitely the ruler of the roost while Drizzle is the little rebel.

I think Boo's theme song would be "She's a Lady" and Drizzle's would be "Born to Be Wild". Anyone else's cats have them songs?
