As I am currently finishing up another movie review post and working on a few others, here are some more cat pictures (taken mostly last week / this past weekend).
The kittens are now nearly six months old! And Nikki, the most recent addition to our feline family (who is eight years old) is definitely settling in, though she and Coraline are still having swat-and-hiss fights every now and then, as they are both very territorial ladies. Still, I figure so long as nobody is actually shredding anyone else, we're doing quite well. I was all asquee to see all four of them napping on the couch (as one of these pictures shows)!
Snuggle-pile on the couch! Shadow and Brodie are total best buddy-brothers, as their entangled cuddle-hug configuration demonstrates. Cora is comfortably positioned next to the boys, whilst Nikki keeps a respectful (yet proximate) distance on the arm of the sofa, where she likes to perch.
So far Nikki seems to be getting on best with Shadow (out of all the kittens). I was figuring it would be either him or Brodie she would warm up to first, as both boy kitties are very social when it comes to other felines.
Brodie having an utterly luxurious nap-stretch on the electric blanket.
Bird-watching is fun for the whole (feline) family!
Coraline is being naughty here (kitties are not allowed on the counters, and she knows it!) but this was such a neat shot I had to get the camera and take it before shooing her down. I then did some editing in GIMP to turn down all the color saturation except for orange, and I think the effect was rather cool!
