We weren’t planning to get more cats. We have Peter, our elderly Norwegian forest cat, and Diego, our elderly German shepherd. Figured we’d get a couple of cats from a shelter for company for whichever lived the longest.

Well, we were wrong about that.

The cat at our barn dropped a litter of five beautiful, seriously, gorgeous kittens — and then abandoned them at three and a half weeks. We are as of today the owners of a tuxedo boy who is big and healthy and independent, and a calico girl who is smaller and thinner, and thinks that Diego is her mum.

Fortunately, Diego thinks that’s a great idea.


We haven’t decided on names yet, but considering their lung capacity we’re thinking of Miv and Piv. Roughly translated into English, that’s Mewl and Shriek.

Tell us what you think!
