“The newest additions to our home, Mr. Tumnus and Theseus, were part of a long line of feline friends we’ve had over the years,” explains Andrew.
“The two kittens took to our home and our huge cat pole right away. We have two older rescue cats named Lovebug and Cat King Cole who needed a few weeks to warm up to the new arrivals, but they soon became the best of friends. Many mornings, I’ll find Mr. T and Theseus cuddling with their older siblings, and it brings such joy to my heart to see all four brothers not only getting along but loving each other.
“Both kittens have added such joy, love and excitement to our household. My 6-year-old daughter loves her kitties more than life itself, and my sister receives so much love and affection from them. The cuddles they provide our family can never truly be measured. They absolutely love physical affection, whether it’s pets, kisses or hugs. I can’t count the number of nights I find one of them cuddled up in bed with us waiting to be petted while purring like a motorboat.
“They both love toys with catnip, chasing bugs and eating them, and racing after any kind of ‘flying’ device, not to mention destroying them — which they’re great at. They also love to wrestle and fight (lovingly) together, and have done so since the day we brought them home. They even have the uncanny ability to spot spiders on the ceiling, alerting us to their presence so that we can catch and release them. Mr. T also loves ice cubes in his water and eating with his paw. Yes! He’ll actually grab his food with his paw and ‘hand-feed’ himself. It’s adorable.
“As for sleeping arrangements, both kittens either sleep in bed with us or together up on one of their various cat poles throughout the house.”
