Thing e & Polly!

Thing e is quite a full grown (and then some) kitty beast (Having been born on July 12, 2003). For those not well-versed in thing lore, her name comes from a love of The Cat in the Hat. There was Thing One. There was Thing Two. There really should have been a Thing p. And we have our very own Thing e. (My kitty is used in calculating continuous compound interest!)

And then there's Polly. Please take care to note the pirate patch (of fur) over her left eye. Her pseudonym is Black-Nose the Pirate (Destroyer of Rugs). While she is practically full grown now (having been born on April 16, 2004), she will always be the baby of the family. We even have doubts as to whether or not she'll ever really grow out of some of her kittenish behaviour.

At present, they're both still playful, attack each other regularly, and have occasional moments of cuddling together. Thing was getting out of hand with her size (nearly 15 lbs!), but she's on a diet now and the result is a more playful beastie, with a much less significant risk of diabetes. Polly seems to have maxed out at about 8 lbs, but she was super tiny to begin with, and was also the runt of the litter.

No, they are not related - we just call them sisters because they act like it. (Thing e, being often followed by her little sister, is usually found with ears pointed back and a look of "But Mom, she follows me everywhere!!!" on her face. Polly, on the other hand, always has to know what's going on with her big sis.)

Pictures are getting harder and harder to choose for them, but I've managed to find a few that represent them well enough. More will be added as they strike my fancy.

Thankfully, she's a bit too big now for this to still be a problem. (Thing e)

Everything below this line (except for most of the sentence that makes sense) is courtesy of Thing e, while I was trying to put together this page. Thanks to her, I know how to make a searchable index. Go kitty!

As I sit typing this, Thing e is an 8 1/2 week old ea w2w7q yu9t5555555555588888888888ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddxxxxxxxxx 8g8t9[]
