We had a very docile, well behaved, 11-year old Siamese -- Amelia. We decided to get her a kitten for companionship. Then we thought the kitten would need a companion. We found a breeder of Bengals and Siamese nearby and went to get two kittens. Unfortunately, we fell in love with a pair of Siamese and a pair of Bengals. In a moment of relative clarity, if not sanity, we decided to leave one of the Siamese for someone else. We brought three kittens home. This is their story.

End of Week 2 (photos)

Two weeks, and still no names. We are working on it. Inspiration will come.

The kittens are a ball and we really love them. We were prepared for breakage, but they have done no significant damage. Today was their first full day free in the house alone. I inspected carefully when I got home, fully expecting chaos, but I found nothing broken or even knocked over.

It dawned on us that Boy B. is going to have to be neutered soon. He is starting to show signs of adolescence. We don't want any accidents. Enjoy, Boy, while you can. He is the most active and friendly of the bunch. He has been sleeping between us near the bottom of the bed. I don't know where the others are spending the night.

Girl B. is getting friendlier. She is more comfortable and plays a lot, and will now come for petting when she is called.

Siamese is just so cuddly you can't leave her alone. It's really hard to walk by her without picking her up. She's playful too, and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything.

The cat litter has been moved to the basement, and they seem to enjoy exploring the lower reaches of the house. Yesterday, one of them dragged a bicycle inner tube upstairs. Another was following chasing the tube. It's scary to think about what they might drag up out of the basement.

Amelia is spending more time upstairs. Unfortuately, she seems to have been run out of her favorite haunts in the bedroom. This is sad, and we will try to correct it. The kittens approach her, and she still hisses, but not with much conviction. We're still hoping she will adapt.

The kittens sleep in a pile on the futon.

On this day, Amelia shared.
