twin boys!!!!

The newest members of our family are two cute little fuzzy bambinos! They are so fun (and funny!), sweet, playful, cuddly...and of the feline family. Yesterday, the lady who owns the riding stables up the road from us gifted us the kittens. She heads down south every winter and closes her ranch, so we now have her little guys. They're not really twins. They're litter mates, but they look almost identical. I named them Fred and George because those are the names that popped into my mind when I saw them. They don't know those are their names yet. They just ignore me when I call them. They do respond to "Psssst!" "Come here, kitty!" I wonder if they think "Pssst" and "Come here" are their names??

Now we've got three cats, a dog, and a hundred head (of cattle). The funny thing is, last night, a friend of ours called to say he brought 'doubles' for me and my hubby answered the phone and thought our friend said 'doves'! (Doubles are a yummy chickpea and curry snack type food from Trinidad) When Hubby called me from the living room, he said, "G called, and he has your doves?!?!?!?!?!" I think he honestly thought I'd gotten birds without asking him! Too funny! I assured him that I hadn't gotten more animals to add to our ever-growing brood and that 'doubles' were indeed Trinidadian food. Poor hubby! Since we don't have kids yet, wifey is making sure we acquire more pets!!! I wonder if he's sorry he married me! LOL

Pics of the two cuties will be posted soon.

LMFAO!!!! My dear Christine, you are positively a nightmare! Poor John! Just think a year ago today he was living in that big old house alone and now he's got a wife and a million animals! I love you. You're so cute! What are the animals going to think when you guys have babies of your own??
