Meet Shawn and Gus

A few weeks ago I mentioned that we adopted two cats. They're doing very well, although they're still adjusting to their new home and tend to jump at any loud noise (which happens more than I would like with our upstairs neighbors). But they are getting braver and have moments, especially in the evening, when they are very cuddly.

They are brothers about a-year-and-a-half old. The light orange tabby is named Shawn, and the gray tabby is Gus. They're named after the main characters in one of our favorite TV shows, Psych.

They look pretty innocent here, but they've already caused  plenty of mischief. After we'd had them for a week, I discovered that they'd made a hole in the bottom of my box spring so they could sleep inside of it. Once I closed off that hideout (with the help of black duct tape and a clear shower curtain liner) they made a hole in the fabric on the bottom of the couch so they could hide in there. We haven't had a chance to repair that one yet, and Gus especially likes to sleep there.

They also are very active at night. They thump around the house chasing each other, and every once in awhile something crashes to the floor (Shawn really likes to jump). It's been awhile since we've had young cats, so that's been an adjustment.

But they are cuties, and they have tiny little kittenish meows. They also both love belly rubs and will roll on the couch until they accidentally roll onto the floor.

There's never a dull moment, that's for sure. The next challenge will be to see if we can put up a Christmas tree this year. Thanks for stopping by!
