Eric surprised me the other day by telling me that he had arranged for us to adopt 2 kittens. We went to pick them up today. They are soooo cute!!!

We haven't named them yet, we have a couple of ideas in mind though. They are 7 months old, and they're brothers. They're Bengals, which seem to be very interesting cats.

Basically, the breed was started by breeding an Asian Leopard Cat (a wild cat from Asia) with a domestic cat. Ours are f4, which means they are 4 generations in from that. The point of breeding them is to get a wild looking cat that is friendly.

A lot of people say they have the personalities of dogs, which seems to be true. I played tug of war with one of them, with a feather stick, and he just kept pulling! They're also very vocal, the wild cats make a lot more sounds than just meows so that they can communicate in the wild. We've already heard a few of these noises.

They're so much fun already! I keep stopping this post to take more pictures. :-)
