    Heidi and I added two Ragdoll kittens to our home on Saturday. Cleo, a Chocolate Point Lynx Mitted Tortie and Emm, a Sealpoint mitted tortie, are sisters from the same litter and three months old.. The energy in our home is now off the charts with these two mischief makers.

    No empty food bowls though our 19 yo. Bengal Tiger likes the kitten food and the kittens like Tiger's food.

    Every day is a new adventure for Cleo and Emm. One day it's climbing their kitty condo, one day it's getting on top of the record cabinet and another day it's the bathtub. Play is always at warp factor 10.
    Congratulations, Myles. They are cuties.

                    Third photo is great. Well, the dirt-bound cat is cool, too. but you shouldn't be melting your cats into plant pots.

                  Really great Myles. A pair is certainly the way to go with kittens. Drop a ping pong ball into the tub with them, that’ll be good for a few sleepless nights (for you)! We will all wait to hear of the first audio related calamity... I hope it does not happen but my experience with kittens says it is almost inevitable. Two wound up kittens on the chase, what could go wrong?

                    Thanks. I roll up a piece of Al foil into a ball and throw that into the tub for fun!

                    Yes had one kitten calamity. One of the kittens chewed threw the thin tonearm wire from my VPI arm to the junction box. Going to have to send the arm back to be retired and have VPI run the wire out the bottom of arm post to junction box. That way will be shorter and can protect.
