Happy 1st Birthday to our two sweet boys, Walter and Thomas!
Those pictures are so much better than these first ones I took of them. They were such frightened, skinny, stinky little boys.
It has been quite the transformation. We adopted them two days before Christmas last year, and in these past few months they have turned from skinny, scared, untrusting cats into confident, loving, plump ones. We couldn’t be happier with them and we all love them so much.
Their personalities are both so different, and fit our family so well. Thomas is shy and only wants attention on his terms, but when he does he can’t get enough. He loves to have his back scratched really hard, and he has the loudest purr you will ever hear. He is not a cuddler, and is not keen on sitting in a lap. He loves drinking from the faucet and will not drink standing water. When he came to us, he was SOOO skinny, but now he is quite a chub. lol He likes to hog the food, I’m afraid.
Walter is very in your face, but in a sweet way. He loves attention and enough is never enough for him. He loves to suck on hair, which is cute but can get a bit annoying at times. lol He will cuddle with you all day long if you’d let him. He loves to have his belly rubbed, and will lay flat on his back for you to do just that. He is a very sweet boy, I don’t think he has a mean bone in his entire body. He has the spirit of a young baby. Very innocent and sweet. Walter was also very skinny when we got him, and stayed that way while we lived at our last house. Since we moved here, though, he has put on a good amount of weight and looks great now. He has a beautiful mane, and I love it! He’s so fluffy and soft, not like any other cat I have felt before.
They definitely love each other, that’s for sure. You can tell they are brothers. They cuddle with each other all the time.
Happy Birthday boys! I hope you have many more happy years to come! ❤
