New boys... :D

I'm going on Saturday to take a look at two boys that are being fostered for a rescue in my area. I figure I will probably be taking them home with me unless there is something unexpected when I see them. So I'm pretty excited.

They are guessed to be about a year old and were abandoned by their previous owner, left alone in a house. Their foster mom says they are big boys, but fairly shy.
Here is the link to their ad on petfinder.com:

I don't really like their names (Steve & Paul) so I will be renaming them if I get them.

I met the boys today and they are soooo cute! They are both PEWs so it's a bit hard to tell them apart but their personalities are quite different. One is very shy and their foster mom said he wouldn't even take treats from her. Well he took treats from me and she was amazed!

I filled out the adoption application and she seemed really impressed with me so I should hear back in a few days about the decision.

Edit: Oh! And they are already litter trained!!!

Wellllllll, here's the deal.

It's pretty much in the bag that I have the boys, it's just taking a bit more time than expected. Which is all good, I appreciate that shelters take the adoption process very seriously and want to cover all their bases. The only problem is that I don't think I'll be able to go get them during the week, so I was really hoping I could get them this weekend. Otherwise I might have to wait another whole week! And I want them sooooooo bad! They are pretty much mine, I just want to bring my babies home already!!
