New family members!

Sorry for the quick, fly-by post! I have two more chapters to write in GHOST HUNTRESS: THE GUIDANCE before I can read, polish, edit and get it critted before October 6th!! Tick, tick, tick...

But, I just had to share pictures of my new fur babies! They are just too adorable for words. And the sweetest little love bunnies. The black one is Natasha, or as I've been calling her, Princess Tashi-Tash of Gorgeousville. The gray one is named Stanley (for the Stanley Hotel and for the Stanley Cup), although I've been calling him Lord Stanley Baby Boy. They don't seem to mind either way.

They're getting settled in, are starting to get on a regular eat-sleep-play-pee schedule. LOL! We're just happy to have been able to give two rescue/shelter kitties a loving home.

Do you have pets? What do you love about them? (Other than they're fabulous!) I know several Buzz girls have beloved pets. How 'bout you?

Hugs,
Marley = )

Marley, so great to see the new babies! Are Stanley's eyes really forest green? They're gorgeous!

Our readers know about Rascal (who is bethrothed to Harper, right?) but these days I'm also feeding a stray who I call Ivy. She is lovely and I'm hoping someday she will let me get close enough to pet her!

Marley Gibson said...

Yes! We love Rascal and Harper!

Stanley's eyes are green, but not that green. I think the flash caused some of that. My cousin thinks he might be a Russian Blue. We're going to have to do a little research.

They are SO cute!!!! I am having a moment of pure kitten-envy right now...I have one tabby, Ash, but I think he could use a little sister.

I love your babies, Marley...they are to die for!

Kristen Painter said...

Oh, they're fabulous and sweet and wonderful! I adore them! What pretty babies you've adopted.

So precious!

Elizabeth Kerri Mahon said...

What sweeties! I wish I had the time to take care of a dog, because I would totally have one.

They are fabulous Marley. I love their names and know you'll give them a wonderful home. You know I have my wild Yorkie, Jack. He and I have a crazy relationship and he keeps me on my toes.

They're beautiful! And look like they're settling in nicely.

Love the names too.

:) Pam

Oh, Marley, they're adorable!

I have one that looks just like your gray one! My daughter has a black one.

My Lightning is the best cat ever. He cuddles with me on the couch every evening--but don't forget what they say...No one owns a cat. (That's because they own you!) LOL

Celise said...

They're big! They'd probably flatten our kitty. Butthey're adorable. We have a Tabby cat named Sweet Pea. Although I refer to her as Mama or Sweetest of Peas. LOL

My wife has promised my 9 yr. old daughter a cat for her birthday, an OUTDOOR cat, since I'm allergic to the dander. We know nothing about keeping cats, but I know a place in town where I can find out everything about anything! (You should, Chuck. You spend 40 hours/week there!)

BTW, I bare a chunk of my soul (toes) and get 10 comments over the weekend, while Marley throws up some pictures of cats and she got 14 and counting!! Is there no justice in this world!!!
Hmm...maybe if I paint my new cat's toenails blue...

Marley Gibson said...

LOLOLOL Chuck! But...they're soooooo adorable! = )

I see Chuck removed whatever snappy rejoinder he had to Marley's comment about how cute her cats are. And while I am the first to fall for kitties, I must say that Chuck and his blue toenails were a sight for sore eyes, too!

Marley,
Congrats on your new babies! They're gorgeous, and you are an angel for rescuing them :-) Your "princess" Natasha is the image of my "Miss Kitty," who is the "queen" of the household. At least, that's what she thinks ;-)
