It's been about two months since we adopted out two tabbies, Shawn and Gus, so I thought I'd post a quick update and share a few photos.
Shawn and Gus can be cuddly -- on their terms, like any respectable cats --and it's especially cute when they snuggle together:
The boys are very playful. They run around like crazy, sometimes chasing each other and sometimes just because. I bought them some toy mice for Christmas, and Shawn especially loves to bat them around and carry them in his mouth, leaving them on the couch or my sister's bed. We also have a wand toy with a feather on the end that they both are crazy about. They jump, flip and run around in circles trying to catch the feather, and when we want to take a break we have to hide the toy so they don't destroy the feather. (Gus has found and pulled the toy out of a couple of hiding spots.)
And after all that playing, you have to take a break, right?
Shawn and Gus are still shy and skittish at times -- they pretty much hide the
entire time we have company -- but overall they've adjusted very well.
Thanks for stopping by!
