We're not babies anymore

Sometimes it is funny to think how little we used to be. We used to be babies, you guys!

This is me on my Gotcha Day in May 2007. Mum and Dad were amazed at how quickly I settled in. I went for a bit of a wander to check out my new digs, and then got to playing! I had one accident, and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Now, I'm a giant mancat. For a while, mum and dad think I was unaware of how big I was getting, because I would still try to squeeze into spots that I no longer fit.

This is Suey on her Gotcha Day, in June 2007. We are from the same litter, but the vet didn't believe it. I am heaps bigger and stronger than she is! She is a bit more nervous than I was, and took a bit longer to settle in. We loved being together again, and would play non-stop.

This video is from the day we first wore our collars. It was a funny feeling!
Guess what else. We are beyond the 10 day period we could have been harbouring the cat flu, and are still showing no symptoms! Mum is so happy she can't begin to say. She is also thankful beyond belief that we have stayed up to date on our F4 and FIV vaccines. The vet says the F4 vaccine was the one that safeguarded us.
Have a lovely week everybuddy:)

WE does grow up so fast.. That is why I do not understand Momma always telling me she wish I would grow up... silly Momma!
It was funny to see you trying to get your collars off.. I don't think I would like to have a collar I would do the same thing hehe

We are sooooooo happy that the 1o days is over and everything is fine!! :)) See the little blossoms watching over you guys :)))

Yay! No flu symptoms! It is very important to stay up to date on all our shots, even though we do not like going to the VET. You were very adorable kittens!

Parker said...

Awww, how cute you two were! Collars sure do feel funny at first, don't they? You both have grown into very beautiful adult kitties! *purrs and scritchies to you*

We are so happy you are ok and that you got through the 10 days without being sick or anything! Yay!

Rupert said...

You are so lucky to have baby pictures of yourselves!

I do not have them because I adopt my People when I am 5.

Paws 'n Claws,

Daisy said...

Hooray for making it safely past the danger zone!

You were such adorable babies, it's no wonder you grew up so good.

The Island Cats said...

Oh you both were such cute kits!!! And yeah! No kitty flu!

Have a good day!

Lux said...

You were (are) such cuties! I'm so happy to hear you're past the danger stage!

Grrreta said...

I'm so happy that you have made it through the ten day period with no symptoms. That's wonderful news! You two were such cute kittens! Ambrose was a giant kitten too. The vet kept saying he was way too big to be the age Mommy said he was. It's amazing how much a kitten grows in that first year.

That baby pic was so cute. You guys look so handsome all grown up. I'm glad too that the flu went away and you are doing well! Purrs and hugs :)

Everycat said...

Yay for not getting da flu! Yay for that vaccine! You were such darling little kittens and have grown up to be darling cats. We think you were really well behaved wearing your collars for the first time.
