Meet the Kittens: Denim and Linen

a1a2

I have some very exciting news! I’ve just adopted two kittens, Denim (first picture) and Linen (second picture). They are siblings and love to play, I couldn’t buy one without another! They both are about nine weeks old, and friendly as all get out.

We’re still working on getting them used to the dog, but they are doing really well with it. If anyone has any tricks for that I’d love to hear them! Linen loves her, but Denim is still pretty frightened by her.

They are settling in nicely, though. I’ve decided that they are going to be indoor cats unlike our past ones which have all been indoor/outdoor. I think they would do fine outside, but I’m going to take them with me when I move out of my parents house, and I don’t want them outside in an apartment complex. It just wouldn’t be very safe.

Spring has been here for a while now, and I’m still as excited about it as I was before the leaves had sprouted. To add to that excitement we have some babies running out and about. Sadly there are only two new goats at the farm this year, but I find myself stumbling upon new life anyways. Heck, there is even a new royal baby (not that ducklings compare to her). We don’t call spring a rebirth for nothing!
