I have adopted two brothers from our local rescue. they arrived this afternoon, we lost one straight away but finally found him under the sofa. his brother is more out going and so far he has been on all window sills my dressing table and sideboard, he has only broken one ornament. The shyer one has decided that DD has a good lap and had plonked himself there. the crazy one has worn himself out and is asleep on my bed. They have been here a total of 3 hours grin

Aww lovely! Tuxedo cats!

LaGattaNera Sat 20-Aug-16 16:51:36

They are gorgeous and well done for getting a pair of rescues!

I very nearly ended up with 3 but as a first time cat slave I thought 2 was enough.

They are gorgeous! Congratulations. Looks like you will be having lots of fun with those two!

Lovely! Black and white cats are the best!

What fab names!

Fluffycloudland77 Sat 20-Aug-16 19:20:06

Oh I love them. They've started early on the destruction I see 😹

Blu tack is much used in this house.

Fluffy thanks for the tip.I will try that

Icequeen01 Sat 20-Aug-16 20:18:58

What to stick the cats to the wall? Isn't that classed as cruelty? smile

Lovely boys.

Handsome boys. How old are they?

DesolateWaist Sat 20-Aug-16 21:13:22

Please say I'm not the only one say stupid shit like 'there are mittens on those kittens' to the pictures?

Show me a baby and I'm a bit 'meh'. Show me a puss cat and I'll chat to it for hours. Even just a picture.

YesItsMeIDontCare Sat 20-Aug-16 21:17:58

Oh how handsome! And fab names too.

First time cat slave? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha grin

Welcome to the Dark Side 😸

Congratulations on your handsome adoptees and welcome to the mad house! Oh how I'd love to adopt 2 more cats but the DH says the 2 we have are enough. I think I may have to LTB.

Absolutely beautiful. I had 2 black and white brothers, Barnaby and Troy, after Midsomer Murders and they did cause murders.

Your puss on the chest of drawers has the same markings like Barnaby did only Barnaby had a startled expression which my sister said he looked as if someone had shoved their finger up his bum grin. He was nicknamed Barmy Barnaby.

Gorgeous boys! I'd have gone for Fred and Astaire in honour of their tuxedo markings but Holmes and Watson is lovely too. They certainly look inquisitive enough for it!

welshpixie Sat 20-Aug-16 21:32:38

At the moment they are playing chase up and down the stairs. they are about 3 years old. Watson was the shy one, but he is the boss and starts the madness, poor Holmes just wants to explore everything. Both used the litter tray so that is a really good start. What has surprised me is they don't like cat treats. it could be they are not used to them

welshpixie Sat 20-Aug-16 21:37:21

Creme I didn't name them the rescue centre did, Watson really loves Dd.
