    ...long story short...we 'tamed' two barn cat kittens for people who said they wanted them...and then renegged when I phoned them to get their kitties...

    ...we have now tried for 3 weeks to find them good pet homes...and the only offers we've had were from bad homes...these people didn't even try to fake it...which is maybe a good thing...

    So...looks like we're keeping them. My pet down-sizing isn't going very well...lol.

    We have 4 cats now! And, I'm a dog person to boot...

    Our older two female cats are 15 years and 10 years...they've pretty much adjusted to the kittens (the older one ignores them, the younger one kinda likes them)...so I'll just keep it slow and steady with the rest of the adjustment period. The mini-dachsie is going to the main problem...she wants to nip at them...

    Anyway ...they're going to the vet on Tuesday for shots...and we'll take it from there!

    The orange male is Prosper (taken with the pancake lens). The dilute tortie female is Mehitabel (taken with the macro).

    Not much difference...they wouldn't stop moving...lol...I need to work on that...

    Kittens are always cute...but these two are 'just' regular old DSH cats...

    However, the grey one is very sweet and shy...we all like her. The male is funny...nice too...but rather fiesty...so a little different than the girls (all 3 of them)...

    They are adorable. I bet the handsome orange boy has very bold markings, even a bullseye on his side. If so, he is a red classic tabby and the cute girl is a blue/cream dilute tortie. Cat colors are just like dogs - no orange or grey, but red and blue. I showed my rescue cats for many, many years in TICA (The International Cat Assoc) and colors and coat patterns were something I had to learn.

    When they grow up, they will be really good looking adult cats!

    Thanks! I haven't had many cats...only one other than the current ones...

    The tortie's markings seem to be getting more pronounced...have you noticed that? How long before they're their 'permanent' colour?

    I love the male's feet...lol. They are huge! He looks like a lion...

    Her markings will change as she gets older. Her cream spots will deepen in color. And red cats have attitude - he will be a lively lion!

    Thanks again...I was wondering. My other 3 are 'normal' coloured torties and calicos...and their colours didn't seem to change noticebly...so I wasn't sure if I was seeing things this time or not..lol.

    Dude, I've got 17 cats. Want one?

    EDIT:

    Kidding. I have 17 cats because I don't trust people to take them. Keep it up and you're on the road to being me!!

    Thank you very much for your kind offer, but I must decline.

    If I really wanted a 5th...all I have to do go harvest yet another one from the barn population...

    All my indoor cats are ex- 'barn' cats, either from someone else's barn, or ours...

    Oh, I see. I'm counting my barn population! I only have one house cat.
