Valentine’s Cats

We got these little dudes a year ago today, and I’ve regretted it every day since.  Just look at their faces.  Regret is written all over them.

































They are totally into doing photo shoots.  Seriously.  Especially the one with the huge white mane (Kokoro).  In fact, the second picture from the bottom reminds me of the cover of that old Bergman film, Persona.  It’s appropriate, too, if you know that film. Kokoro has always got to be the one out in front, Yuki shyly looking over his shoulder.

    Oh, awesome! We have matching kitties, too.

    I also regret getting mine, but I have a feeling I mean it more than you do.

    LOL, some days I really do regret it. They are the chattiest, neediest cats I have ever met. When they are at their chattiest and neediest are the days of regret. Well, maybe not whole days, but moments. 😉

    My husband and I and our sons are owned by seven kitties, one of which is a Turkish Angora that looks remarkably like your two. Haiku isn’t needy of affection, but he’s the biggest feline glutton I’ve ever encountered.

    How can you regret kitties who pose as a heart on valentines day? You give them extra treats to make up for it!

    Pamela, these cats are mixed, but they’re mixed of two purebreds: a Turkish Angora, as you mentioned, and a Siamese. It’s the reason we found them at an animal charity here. Their conception was an accident, and the owner wasn’t interested in mixed cats, so they were brought into the charity. On the same night, I was looking for a cat, and saw these two. Someone had already got their sister, and these two were clinging to each in this ridiculously pathetically cute way, so I decided I needed to take both of them. Big mistake! 😉

    Chance, if you were here and saw how readily they cuddle themselves into heart shapes and such at the drop of a hat, you would think less of them. Or perhaps more, actually. They have movie star qualities. Always looking for an audience.

    Ghost cats for sure, Dora. They are very pretty little kitties.
