Happy birthday to our sweetest little kittens! Marley and Max were born sometime around Thanksgiving last year, or so the shelter told us when we got them.
They were the cutest kittens.
Being one year old, they are almost full grown now, but will probably continue to fill out. They are in their late teens in human years, and they totally act like teenagers.
This fall, Max had taken to spending lots of time in the neighbor's overgrown back yard. Isn't that so typical of a teenage boy?
Marley has a bit of a belly on her now and can't quite fit through places she used to.
We took them to Moab again recently. It takes about 45 minutes for them to settle down and shut up, but once they do, they seem content to ride in the car.
They "help" me with everything, especially Marley. She has to be in on the action all the time. Most of the pictures of our house projects on this blog that have a cat in them picture Marley.
But Max wants in on the action sometimes too. Here he is helping us put Ikea furniture together.
He does spend more time resting in the top of the cat tower though.
They strike cute cat poses all the time.
