Introducing Marley and Max

Drew and I spent a week in Maui, Hawaii last week and I've got several posts in the works with awesome pictures and videos, but with there are a lot of pictures to sort though, so it might be a few days until the first one is up.  In the mean time, I wanted to make this "birth announcement".

Drew and Lucy
are proud to announce their happy adoption of 
Miss Marley and Mr. Max


Born around Thanksgiving 2010
Max 3 lbs. 12 oz.
Marley 3 lbs. 2 oz.
(As of 1/23/2011 - I just weighed them on our food scale. They didn't really like it.)



We adopted them from the Human Society only a few hours after their foster human brought them in for adoption. Seems Max and Marley's mom was a 1-year old cat that gave birth to these two precious little babies two months ago.  Friday was their first day up for adoption.  It must have been fate - Thursday I suggested to Drew that we go down to see if the HS might have two kittens we could adopt.  We were busy doing other things until late Friday afternoon, so if we had been on the ball, we would have missed these guys.  We were hoping to find litter mates, so they will have already bonded and can keep each other company when we go out of town for a few days. We were lucky to find them this young, and SO CUTE.

Max is much bigger than his sister, but doesn't bully her at all. He has more black on his face and big paws.










Marley is a petite little thing who can already jump twice her height. She is more vocal than Max.






They are very well bonded to each other. They play together...

sleep in one ball...

and even use the litter box at the same time.  Marley regularly grooms Max,


and they are hardly ever in different rooms.  Their favorite games are string, laser, and chase the tail.  They seem to be adjusting to life at our house away from their mama very well.

  1. Wonderful! When I had brother-sister kitties, the sister cleaned the brother too. Sorta pathetic, really.

  2. Congrats on your new babies! Much easier than puppies and so darling! If only they invented kittens that stay small!
