I swear that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde talk to each other.  They pass messages to each other, to either get something or to decide who is going to take care of mom.  It's the Changing of the Cat Guard but with nursing kitties rather than going in and out of the door!  Da Boys decide who gets what, who is allowed where, and so on.  Of course, the two who are the worse about this are Thomas and Zaphoid.  But they are also litter mates.  My eldest boys, their mother showed up on the doorstep of a friend who is allergic to cats.  Now she has two children who love cats.  So she also lives with two cats (or is it three?) because of her two children.  This means that when the mother cat appeared, my friend took her in.  At that time, there were no shelters that took in pregnant animals.

Once the kittens were born, there were two that just won the hearts of everyone in our family.  And thus Sir Thomas of Snuggle and Zaphoid Beeblebrox came home to live with us.  As you can see, Zaphoid is a traditional sable point.  But Thomas, ah Thomas.  He is a tabby-point... blue... unless he wants to be lilac... or red (that's not the right name but my brain has just gone somewhere else).  No, really.  Thomas changes color.  In fact, he went lilac for Easter!  He's going back to blue now, but evidently he felt that Easter deserved a color change.  ::grin::

Zaphy: "Hey, mom is giving out treats.
We need to get upstairs neeeooooww!!"

This morning I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Doctor Grumpy in the House.  I made a comment that I didn't expect to be put up for everyone else to see because it had a url for my shop.  This one hasn't been switched into the "Things You..." sections yet and CafePress is being a poohbear right now.  meh.  But here is what I sent.  ::grin::
