Let's Hear it For the Kitties

A couple days back I posted an article introducing a kitten that the wife and I have taken in. I mentioned that we were keeping the boy and socializing the girl to give away. I also said that I would be posting a photo of the pair of them.

The black kitty on the right, the girl, is the one up for adoption. The tiger kitty is very friendly and both are pretty tame, but the black one is not as bold. She will fall asleep if you hold her, but she does not come up to you like the tiger will. We are working on that.

There is still one other kitten to catch, not sure how I will get that done.
