Distracted, in the cutest possible way

We start the quilting young around here. #newkitten

As I said on instagram, we start the quilting young around here.

On Saturday we decided it was just too quiet around here without any pets so we  adopted two brother kittens who were rescued by the Humane Society. They are about 3 months old, and tiny. They pretty much took all the sewing time on the weekend and are threatening to do that for the next few days too. That one is called Sundance.

This is Butch and he is the one with the mittens. Butch is bigger and the lead explorer. Sundance is just so cute - you know like the movie.

They have golden eyes to match their orange/gold fur. And they are either on the move or sleeping.

They are very small. The dirty kitchen tiles are 12" square.

And most of the photos are blury like this as they won't sit still. I need to get my telephoto lens out.

My son's feet might be larger than they are.

Look at the tiny pink nose. This amount of cuteness surely should not be allowed.

Curious, and getting to know their way about.

And often sleeping beside my youngest, who is off school for a 5 day weekend - so I took today off too, it only seemed fair. We have Remembrance Day tomorrow in Canada.

And it is also the second Tuesday of the month tomorrow so in addition to remembrance, we shall open the Scraptastic Tuesday link for one week only this time, for your scrappy projects - finished or in progress or your thoughts on scraps. We heave great sponsors and prizes again so Nicky and I are hoping you will be joining us.

Best,

Leanne

What cuties those two are! Congratulations on welcoming them into your lives and giving them a wonderful home!! I was just thinking it was just about this time last year we started researching rescue kitties from our neighborhood rescue - we went and saw our two little brothers for the first time Dec. 5 last year!! May you have many happy years together.

Thank you for rescuing those two little QT-Pies! I just recently started volunteering for our local humane society -- It's so sad to see the number of kitties and dogs looking for good homes.

Ooooh! I might have asploded with the squee! Awesome, AWESOME names (we have a sketch from the final scene of the film hanging in our kitchen) and do you think they know how incredibly lucky they are? Talk about winning at adoption! *g*

OMG! Is it possible for them to BE any cuter???? I've had several orange males and they were the sweetest, most loving cats I've ever had :) And I had the BIGGEST crush on Sundance back in the day!!! Wait, I think I still do :*D

Orange kitties are my favorite~sunshine and pink noses! Enjoy your new buddies :)

Kate said...

OMG I AM COMING TO CANADA TO STEAL THEM. Um, I mean, they're pretty cute. I wanted an orange kitten so badly, but instead we got CC. And she was a little one pound fluff ball just year ago, but now she's a giant beast and I really need a baby kitten again. So I might steal yours.
