Kittens..here they come

New members in my family, Alhamdulillah. Bought these two cute adorable kittens on 31/12/12. More than a month already. The brown is Queen Sheera and the white is Kublai Khan. Don't ask me why we named them such. It was chosen together with my children. Life has not been same since tey came. It like having a new baby in the house, Kublai Khan who was 9 weeks old was absolutely tiny weighing only 0.5 pounds. He was also not well, having diarrhea and loss in appetite. We had to nurse him slowly and now Alhamdulillah he has recovered. Back in my younger days, I had a cat called Mr. L. Now it was not difficult to look after him. He was a stray and I brought him back from school. You see, I used to bring home stray kittens found on the way back from school. My mom will quietly let them go in the nearby market the next day. She would tell me, the kitten had run away. When I brought Mr. L back home, he melted everybody's  heart. Including my mom. He was so clever, and obedient. He understood straight away all the rules in the house. He never sat on the carpet or climbed on the sofa or even went upstairs. He sleep the whole morning, and wait for me by the gate to come back from school. Then after lunch he will sit next to my books when I do my homework. In the evenings he will take a short nap before entertaining us with his antics. Then at night he will wait for my father to come back home at the end of the road. As soon as he sees my father, he will dash back to the house, as though he was in a race with my dad !!. Then after dinner, he will sit on the roof of my dad's car and watch outside the house. During the night we keep him outside. This is when he will go around the neighborhood with fellow buddies. We had Mr. L for more than 6 years. During one of his nightly outing, he was bitten by another cat and had blood poisoning. We took him to the Vet but unfortunately he did not survive. I never had a pet since then. But now Queen Sheera and Kublai Khan seems to have stolen my heart again. They remind me so much of Mr. L that I am always talking about him whenever they do their antics. I don;t know how long they will be with me. These persian cats are more difficult to look after.
