little kittens in front of pillows

It’s been a while since we’ve posted. We’ve meant to post more updates, but somehow we’ve been up to our armpits in… KITTENS!!

After three long years without any fur-kids, we adopted two wonderful feral “trailer-trash” kittens in November, from Oasis for Animals on Whidbey Island.

Tosh had a rough start to life, brought to the shelter at about 3-days old, dehydrated and emaciated. He was bottle-fed and imprinted on people, so he thinks he’s a human!

Tosh (named after the Reggae artist Peter Tosh!) is a beautiful tabby boy and we think he’s part Bengal and part Siamese, as he has many Bengal characteristics, like chirping instead of meowing, and loving to play fetch – he’s also a BIG kitten, just look at those paws here at about 4 months old. And he’s a big talker like a Siamese.

Heidi loves her new little snuggle-bunny Tikka! Her fur is as soft as a bunny too!

Tikka is a lovely little tuxedo girl who’s about 6-weeks younger than Tosh. She loves to charm and keeps herself entertained by chasing her own tail, or anything else that looks like fun, including air molecules!

Here are a few more pix of these bundles of FUN, high-energy, innocent JOY! We are grateful to have found two kittens with such great personalities, and they are taking to boat-life so well.

Tosh & Tikka love each other as much as we love them – they regularly sleep all snugged up together – when they aren’t chewing on each other!

We couldn’t be happier with our two new crew members and look forward to helping them get their sea legs soon. Meanwhile they “help” us with every boat project, sometimes too much help!

Tosh, what BIG paws you have! Tikka puts up with a lot from her brother, like being laid on!
