Pictures of my Fur-Babies

Here are the pictures of my little ones. I started with a litter of four, but now I've got just two. The little black and white one had lost it's appetite and was very skinny. I worried about him, and ended up returning him to the "professionals" in case he didn't make it. I don't think I could have handled losing one while they were in my care. So, he went back to the rescue organization where he could be monitored closely, and I also gave up another one of his siblings (the only little girl in the group) to keep him company. Though she was my favorite little one, I knew it was best because of how bonded the two are. I couldn't dare separate the two of them.

Here's the entire litter as I first received them. Full of food, these guys are sleepy, sleepy!

This was my sweet little girl. She was the most calm and relaxed of the bunch. While the others cried and threw fits, she would roll over on her back and chill. I miss this one so much.

This is one of the keepers, his name is Howie. He's the mellow one of the two, unless he's hungry. If he's hungry, look out, he'll take a finger off. After he's good and fed, he's one content little man.


Here is my baby, Tucker with my friend Chelsea. He's a total cry baby! Even after I've fed him his bottle, he cries for attention. If I don't give him "play" time, he's not a happy camper. He loves to be held, loves to be pet, and purrs constantly. He's just a lovable little guy. He loves to look at faces. Look at how mesmorized he is with her face!


You can see his face better here. The flash from the camera tends to make their eyes look cloudy. It's just the pictures, though.

He made me hold him, only to fall sound asleep in my hands, purring the whole time. He was also doing his "happy feet" while he dozed off into LaLa Land.


Little Howie still had a bit of a milk mustache goin for him here. I've let them out a few times to explore, even though they're still very young (only 3 1/2 weeks old), and Howie is NOT comfortable with it. No way! He's very nervous and prefers to stay at my side. Tucker, however, is the complete opposite.


I had to post this picture. He looks so pathetic yet cute all at the same time. Tucker was a little upset and hungry when this photo was taken. He was crying and crying loud. Poor little Tuck!
