I was browsing through the photos on my computer and came across a few of Oliver and Lily from when they were kittens. I'd forgotten just how tiny they were! Before you ask, here's a little background on them. I brought the pair home from the barn (there was an influx of kittens this spring) in late June. After being housed with several other kittens since birth, they both developed ear mites, although Oliver was, by far, the worst of the two. He'd also injured his shoulder, but the resilient little guy healed very quickly with the aid of medication. They took to one another immediately once home, although they had been housed seperately at the stable due to Oliver's injury. They have since been spayed and neutered, spent more time with the vet than either would have preferred, and have made fast friends with my dog, much to her dismay.
Now for the pictures (you can ignore my above ramblings if you so desire):

to do that!"

Lily looking manic. She spent much of her time as a kitten wearing that expression.
