Just because you haven't seen them in a while...

Here's some photos of my babies. My mother-in-law got them these balls with feathers attached for Christmas. Sophie was fascinated. She chased them up and down the hallway, batting at them like soccer balls. Athena, on the other hand, couldn't have cared less. The picture of Athena is from earlier this year, when I had thrown my old robe over the couch and she decided it made the perfect resting spot.

Typical cat, huh? Soft and fluffy makes a good bed. Perhaps that's why they lay on me so much!!!

Reminder to self: you need more pictures!

Oh, and because someone asked at some point, both girls are sealpoint siamese. They are not from the same litter, but had the same dad. Athena's litter was born on September 23, 2005. Sophie's was born the very next day. It's hard to tell here, but Athena is more of the "modern" siamese with a triangular face, longer body, and almond-shaped eyes. Sophie is an "applehead" with a rounder face and eyes, and shorter, more squat body. Both are very active and loving, although Athena's a tad afraid of strangers. Therefore, visitors to my house often see Sophie only, and she loves it that way. She gets all of the attention!

Beautiful cats! I love cats but am not allowed to have any because we once had one that my hubby was very attached to and we had to "put it to sleep" becuase it got severly injured after getting hit by a car. My hubby actually was the one that was with our kitty when it was put to sleep and he has been traumatized ever since.
:0(

Well that was depressing!LOL!
BTW I'm now a follower.

I really love your babies! I had a siamese tabby mix years back...had to get rid of him because Jenna was allergic. I have always loved the siamese look. Beautiful!
