We actually managed to get all six kittens sitting
in the same place at the same time -- for a nanosecond or two, anyway. From left
to right, they are Idaho, Georgia, Alabama, Washington, Tennessee and
Mississippi. They are 5 weeks old in this photo:
The following photos were taken at 13 weeks of
age. We tried getting all the kittens in the same place again, but it was
impossible... they were way too busy!
||This is Georgia. She's a blue
classic tabby and white female, the smallest and spunkiest kitten in the
litter. She is friendly and affectionate, and despite her size, she knows
exactly what she wants -- and usually gets it!
has no problem holding her own with the Three Galoots (her rowdy
brothers). In fact, when she is determined to get The Current Toy, they
get out of her way!
Mississippi is a blue mackerel
tabby female, very quiet and gentle. Although Missy can be somewhat
reserved with people she doesn't know, she's a real sweetheart once she's
comfortable. (Her temperament is very similar to her mother's.)
Mississippi is our daughter's favorite, and she is constantly being picked
up and carried around like a baby -- which she tolerates with the gentle
grace that's fast becoming her hallmark.
||Alabama is a blue mackerel tabby
and white female. She tends to hang back and watch her siblings play --
she hates ending up underneath her obnoxious brothers. But when those
pesky rough-and-tumble boys are out of the way, Allie blossoms into a
playful little girl. She especially loves feather toys, and once she
gets hold of one -- it's hers!
|Idaho is a brown mackerel tabby
and white male, and is the largest kitten in the litter. He is friendly
and active, and is always getting into things. One of his favorite
pastimes is jumping on his sisters when they least expect it. He also
enjoys playing in the water dish. He is pretty smart, and has already
begun to figure out how to open cupboards and doors...
||Washington is the flashiest kitten in
the litter, as well as being the litter's self-appointed Official Explorer
Scout. He is outgoing and affectionate, with a relaxed temperament that we
love. Washington is a very warm brown mackerel tabby and white with huge
ears and lots of coat. We think he's going to grow up to look just like
his dad Frosty...
Tennessee is a blue mackerel tabby and white
boy. He is a happy-go-lucky fellow, goodnatured and friendly, with a sunny
outlook on life and the glint of mischief in his eye. (If he were human,
Tennessee would be a little boy with a snub nose and tousled hair, wearing
denim overalls rolled up to the knee, with a frog in his pocket and a
mouthful of pilfered cookies.)
