After this, the house felt so empty though. And we'd always talked about getting a pair of cats when Pixel was no longer with us (she was intensely jealous of any other cat in the house; when Peaby was alive, she was so ill-tempered, and after he'd gone, her personality did a complete 180). So, this happened:
Say hello to Miles Vorkosicat (the black one) and Ivan Vorcatril (the orange one). Miles, like his namesake, is hyperactive and insatiably curious. Ivan, also like his namesake, is very handsome and would much rather be left alone than dragged into some mad scheme. (It is also worth noting that Miles claimed us as his humans within 5 minutes of us meeting him.)
So, yeah. Kittens.
