Time to reveal these little guys.

Chocolate Girlie and Lilac Bloke
So in my last post I introduced you to the little family, from which these guys come.

The breed is British Shorthair - the breed on which Lewis Carroll based the Cheshire Cat!

Back to the kittens

Still have the baby blue eyes - will eventually be gold

So I was talking with my psycho man and he asked me "why did I choose British Shorthair?"

me: "Well of course it is completely Freudian! The breed is a representation of myself"

It is a larger sized, plump cat, thick coat, placid - not athletic or lithe, not destructive, laze around all day, happy to be alone, pretty quiet until food is involved, loyal, not clingy but happy to sit in the same room, easy to train and teach tricks, tough with no known health problem.

Just add - "can use computer" and I am handing over this blog.

Have shorter legs and a cobby body - sounds familiar?
So here are their photos where they are 3 weeks old. A little brother and sister. They have to spend 12 weeks with their mother to be healthy and fully socialised.

I love how they look like their smiling!
 After all, no one wants to spend their life looking at a grumpy kitten.
