They're wonderful, fun, and loving kitties and I'm glad to have them both. They didn't seem to have any trouble adjusting to their new home. My 2 year old Jasper took to them right away and loves playing with them (and they him). My 6 year old Shadow isn't as enthusiastic, but she's doing quite well compared to when I brought Jasper home.
I thought I'd let you know that they're healthy and happy.

In May while visiting PetSmart we had the chance to meet and play with some sweet kitties.
Not long after, Soleil Raindrop (formerly Chimmy) and Twinkle Moondance (formerly Cinder) joined our family. They are our sunshine after the rain. Their unending energy and antics and sweet love and purrs continue to give our family... especially myself and their feline brother, Zazu, great comfort.
There are fewer things that bring me greater joy than the purr of a sweet cat (or three!) curled up on my lap while I read... or seeing them all hunt the birds at the bird feeder (through the window of course!) ... or watching my 11 year old kitty once again run like the wind down our hallway while the two new little ones chase after him!
It is amazing how such small creatures can fill such a large spot in your heart. And what is even more amazing is how there is always room for one more! Thank you Camp Companion for taking such great care of Cinder & Chimmy while they were with you. They have quickly become a part of our family... and we love them more each and every day!

They both had some teeth problems and needed treatment with antibiotics, and they loved it when I mixed the antibiotics in with canned food. Both cats were very shy at first but they have adjusted to their new home very well. They still get timid with sudden movements or strange noises but they have made great improvements. They even come out to see visitors now!
Syd (formerly Oscar) loves to snuggle and curl up right next to me. He also likes to meow and talk to me very often.
Francis (formerly Felix) is my playful boy. He loves to roll around on the floor and jump all over Syd. Although he's not much of a snuggler, he loves attention and gets jealous if Syd is getting attention and he's not.
Thank You Camp Companion!

In one of the pictures, you can see that Seven has had a broken end of her tail which is why we named her Seven. It looks like a 7 when she holds her tail up.
She is full of energy and very entertaining. One morning we woke up to all of our paper towel rolled out in the kitchen and dining room. She was so cute that we couldn't get mad. However, we had to switch to cloth towels!!!
She is a great addition to the family!!
On a sad morning in June, Anya my beloved friend for 10 years, passed away. I was not sure at first whether I should get another pet after she had passed but I missed having someone else in the house. Anya, while not the friendliest kitty to anyone else, was my grey shadow so my new babies had big (figuratively and literally) shoes to fill.
Suki (the black torti) is quite the little diva. I think she must have some siamese because of the shape of her features and body and the way she likes to talk. Suki has a comment on everything and she loves to share that with me. She is extremely loving and wants to be pet as much as she can and is my new shadow as she follows me everywhere in the house.
Sahara (the pretty tabby) is Suki's opposite. She is so quiet and calm but she is also one smart cat. When trouble is afoot and they are into things they shouldn't be, I know Sahara was the ringleader. Sahara loves to explore and chasing toy mice is one of her joys along with climbing up EVERYTHING including the walls. She may act a bit crazy at times but Sahara is also a snuggler and loves to be held and will have such a big purr for such a tiny girl.
They have both settled in quite nicely and there is no denying that they now rule the roost. They love playing together and hold regular races and wrestling matches in the downstairs living room.
I'm extremely glad I brought these two girls home. They have two extremely different personalities but like yin and yang, they complement each other so well and I am lucky to have been able to give them a forever home.
