“Stop by on your way home,” was the text I got from my brother. Unexplained requests always leave me hesitant — something wrong?
Sure wasn’t… I walked into the back room of my parents house to find two new baby kitties bouncing around. Well, actually one was bouncing, the other other ran and hid under the couch until he became comfy with me, and was sure I wasn’t dangerous. The bouncy one, the lady, couldn’t have care less who I was, as long as I dangled something for her to attack.
Dempsey,*” named after the soccer player Clint Dempsey ,
not to be confused with the beautiful actor Patrick Dempsey.
Meet “Timmy,*” named after mom’s favorite soccer player, Timmy Howard —
and he’s also a little special, like Tiny Tim.
And his sister, “Abby,*” named after Abby Wambach, the US soccer player
currently in spotlight for rockin’ out at the women’s World Cup.
*names subject to change
“Abby” is a hyper little thing that will jump and cuddle up with anyone, while “Dempsey” is more timid, more particular about his cuddle and play partners it seems. They don’t look alike, but they are bro and sis and they help each other out, such as when Dempsey went in the litter box after Abby peed and covered it up for her. What a great big brother. Actually big might not be the right word, he was the runt. He also gets anxiety, as he puked and crapped all over soon after he got home from the stress of, well, being adopted and moving to a new home. I mean, come on, that’s stressful!! I think he’s ok now.
I’ll post more as we manage to capture them.
In the meantime, here are some adorable pics of my Dora Dora Doll. She is such a good sleeper now that she spends all day gallivanting outside.
