Awwww they're adorable!

I'm so jealous that your cats are friends - mine still don't get along *sniff*

Aww. Yeah it's nice to have cats that get along or at least tolerate eachother. Oliver was reuinited with his brother for the first time in 8 months and they hated eachother. Must not have rememberd they were brothers.. :cry:

At first I was afraid they wouldn't get along as well -- he came from a litter and was in a cage at the shelter with his sister (who had already been adopted, unfortunately -- i was looking for a pair of siblings). She was a stray who just arrived at the shelter the day before, so she was a bit skittish. Luckily, the fact that she arrived at the shelter late so they kept her for 2 more days to be spayed... and we kept them separate for a majority of the week she needed to heal. We'd let them out to play every now and then and the fact that they couldn't play with eachother all the time made their curiosity about eachother grow. Now they're best friends (or boyfriend & girlfriend, brother & sister LOL), and would meow if I separate them for too long. I guess it's a matter of personalities -- he's the more independent one who's used to being loved, while she's the one who needed love... and we try to give them what they need to stay happy. Maaan, I love these little guys :)

nope they're not siblings. he had a sister at the shelter but she had already been adopted, so my bf picked out Tyra to be Tyson's "girlfriend" LOL... her face "makeup" made her unique and special so we decided to take her home even though she seemed a bit skittish around Tyson. she's come around a lot and always has to have everyone's attention (which is a big change since for the first few weeks, she spent most of her time under the couch or in the bathroom for post-spaying healing)

Ah cute! I love Tyson! And I know what it's like to have a skittish girl, so I feel for you about Tyra. Most of my friends have never seen Lemur, she always hides when they come over...she even runs from my husband, who saved her life!!! She truly loves me, and only me...

Edited: You perhaps should be glad you didn't end up with siblings! It's no guarantee they'll get along. I have a brother and sister who hate each other, but get along great with the other cats.

Ok these guys are really cute but they sound like my own 2. I dont know if they're bf/gf or brother/sister, anyways Im thinking bf/gf or at least hope it is. My girl craves attention and my boy cat is very independant, strange huh? :D

Also in Tyson's pic is his left paw bigger or something?

Tyson is a polydactyl (take a look at my avatar to see his paws close up)... he has a total of 22 toes, none of the # of toes match up on each foot! Counting from front right paw, it goes 7,6,5,4. ha ha.

I thought it was so cute, that's why I picked him :D

Yeah I think they're closer to being bf/gf... Sugar and Twinkie seem like a cute pair as well -- don't they always just make you smile?

Thank god Tyra's not skittish anymore... now she's the lover of the two, she'll cuddle and love up to anyone that visits, while Tyson just walks around and does his thing :) Tyson loves the computer though, and Tyra loves static off the TV.

Edited: (shameless plug) if you guys want to see more pix of Tyra & Tyson, I've uploaded pix in photo gallery :)
