I don't think I've posted a picture of both my babies before. They have been in my avatar individually, though, at some point. Anyway, here are my babies Stella (to the right) and Saga (old-fashioned Swedish name) hanging out on their favourite sofa:
They turned three in the beginning of June - or at least that's their estimated birthday. Since I got them from a shelter for abandoned and/or mistreated cats, there's no telling exactly how old they are, but they were just out of their kittenish stage (fully grown but still very playful) when my fiancÚ and I took them home two years ago. They're still a bit jumpy around new people, but they've transformed so much in the two years we've had the honour of having them. They sleep in our bed every night, curl up on my lap when I read or watch TV and always have to be in the same room as me - including the little girls' room Saga has even found a way to open doors just to make sure she isn't missing out on anything exciting. (Is that a common thing for cats to do? I'd like to believe that my cat is a genius, obviously..) It's just heart-warming to see how two little individuals who got such a rough start in life are able to trust and love humans again.
Two other pics:
As you can see, they're not too amused by the camera. We're working on getting them more used to cameras, though, and once we've succeeded, the next edition of America's Next Top Pet Model will have to go international
PS: Note the Mammoth Guide to Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll just behind Stella in the last pic! Very entertaining book
