But not in the way you might think… Though we don’t plan to have kids for a couple more years, we decided this month that we were ready to expand our family in another way. So, a little over a week ago, these two beautiful girls came home with us.
Both kittens are four months old, rescued by the Northern Virginia SPCA after being found with a hoarder who has 18 adult cats living in a one-bedroom apartment. Many liters of kittens were removed from that home, including this last one, before all of the adult cats were at last neutered and spayed by the SPCA.
Even though Molly and Twix were a bit shy when we first brought them home, that wasn’t the case for long, and they now spend their days exploring, playing and getting into all kinds of adventures. So far, we can tell that Twix is a real daredevil, fearlessly climbing up onto shelves, burrowing under the covers on beds, and racing around chasing her mice toys. Her cousin Molly is an adorable and sweet little kitty who likes to play, but also loves to curl up on my lap while I work, purring happily as she keeps me company.
Since I grew up in an apartment building that didn't allow cats or dogs, adopting these two has been a really exciting change for me! In just the short amount of time we’ve had them, I already feel a strong connection to these girls. They’re fun, loving, and such a joy to have in our home!
Do you have pets? What are their personalities like?
