Those hard to reach places....

I could not resist sharing taking these pictures of Hamish and Charles, this morning. They have different parents and were 'chosen' within a week of each other, and yet they really are like a lot of brothers.
The best of friends, willing to go that extra mile, prepared to clean the INSIDE of each others ears. And today all was peaceful. However, quite regularly one will decide to nip the others ear (usually Charles), and then it is on! War! Chasing each other, hissing, tackling, rolling ... Until they forget, and the war turns into a game.
The game quite often ends in my big claw foot bath. As they race through the bathroom they will remember what fun it is to slide in the bath. Run up to the top and slide down the inside - like a banana slide. Friends again ... Unless one lands on top of the other ...

As I said, just like brothers ...

And don't you just want to kiss those two little noses?

Julie - your boys are beautiful! I am sitting here at work with a big smile creasing my face looking at their faces.

I think it is heart warming that Hamish and Charles get on so well together (well, most of the time!).
They really do look like they have the same mum and dad.

Laughing out loud now at the image of them sliding in your bath...he hee. Cat's are so funny aren't they? Esmeralda likes to keep very close to me. I have a shower curtain over my bath and often when I am showering she peeks her head around to see what I am doing!

Your boys are obviously well loved.

hehe I thought the first pic was a painting, for just a split second. I love their color. They really do look like siblings. I'm tempted sometimes to get a playmate for my Miss Reagan but at nearly two ,it's probably a tad late...so I guess I'll be her playmate, but I'm NOT licking inside her ears. :)

I was thinking about these huge fluff butts again last night and telling my Angel Pie all thier romps thru the house , down the tub slide and back to cleaning....I also reminded him that you were the girl with the rude student and the cat who ate a snake bathtub woman!

Have a wonderful weekend (my email is still down...wahhhh)

HI,
Thanks for visiting my site and your lovely comments. I adore the photograph of two of your lovely kittys. I am in awe of people such as you and Dotee who do these 60 odd 1 inch collages, it was be a real challenge to work on such a small surface.

I came by yet AGAIN to look at these scrumptious kitty cats !!!

I am quite in love with your boys !

Thank you all so much!!! It is so nice to find people who also think my boys are adorable. My furry family is so, so precious to me. I am on holidays and so watching more tv at the moment.. It is such bliss to have them curl up around me on the couch.
