and Murray, Kit and Rascal too
On July 14, 1997 our family grew by two when we acquired two
adorable six week old kittens. We named them Oscar and Felix.
Typical brothers, they love to play and fight with each other.
They are very affectionate and a joy to watch.
The above pictures were taken in July 1997 when they were about two months old.
The above pictures were taken in August 1997 when they were about three months old.
Kit - September 1997
Kit passed away in December 2005 at the age of 18 years old.
Murray - May 23, 1999
This is the newest member of the household.
His name is Murray, he is an eight-week-old kitten
who joined our family on Saturday, May 22, 1999.
Oscar & Felix pretty much turned into lazy lumps when they
outgrew their playful kitten stage. But Murray remains full
of personality and playfulness to this day. The photo below
was taken in my front yard in October 2007. He likes to sit in
the front yard and guard the property and watch the people go by.
In the summer of 2002 a couple of stray cats gave birth to
a couple of litters of kittens in our back yard.
There were three more litters of cats born in our back yard in 2003.
The first litter was to the same mama as the first litter in 2002.
The Calico kitten from litter #1 gave birth on April 28, 2003.
In the fall of 2003 all our outside strays moved on to other places.
All except the guy pictured below. We named him Rascal.
He was part of the first litter of kittens born in 2002.
He disappeared in February 2009. We miss him!
Oscar passed away in 2011 and Felix two years later in 2013.
Murray is now an only child and doing well at age 17.
