New Babies








As most of you know I am a cat fanatic. I have had a cat since I was 6 years old. I moved into my house in December of 2001 and found my two sweet babies in the summer of 2002. They have been a blessing to me and also fun roommates. Katie is an 11 pound black and white short hair and Carter is a 22 pound long hair orange tabby. They have been my only babies since 2002. Well we now have 2 new additions to the Fabulous Files Family, Connor and Cecil. Jeff's mother's cat, Bitsy, had a litter of 5 kittens. We found homes for 3 of the 5 kittens. I begged and begged Jeff on numerous occasions to let us have the 2 orange tabby kittens. I even said that the Lord intended for us to have them because they were the 2 that no one else wanted. Still an emphatic NO from Jeff. Nothing seemed to be working. Then the Lord interveined (HeHe). On July 3rd Jeff was at his mother's house and called me at work to tell me that the blue eyed kitten was very sick and asked if I could come by and check on him. I went to Judy's house to find the blue eyed baby very sick. He was not moving and could barely breathe. I scooped up both kittens and rushed them to the vet. They both had upper respitory infections and had to be on antibiotics for 10 days. The vet was very concerned that they might not make it. Jeff was fishing, so Sarah Beth came over and helped me bathe them, give them their medicine and a flea treatment. We then named them Connor(brown eyes) and Cory(blue eyes). Cory was not doing well after his bath and we were very worried he would not make it through the night. I had to keep the kittens separate from Katie and Carter because they could pass on the virus to them. After 2 days the kittens made a remarkable recovery, Cory's name was changed to Cecil and they are still with us. I took them to the vet on Friday, 8/1 and the vet said they were doing great. Over the last 4 weeks Jeff continually said we needed to find them a home. I say they have a new home until he finds them one which he has not. He has becomed very attached to them and I think they will be with us for a long time. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos of our new twin boys!!

Emily, wow you are so sweet! Shaun always says when we get pets one day he wants them to have "human" names. I'll tell him all your cat's names, he'll love it.
