A 1-year old neutered male named Biggey and a 2-month old male we named Ansel. (His "pound name" was "Tantar" and I thought Ansel fit him
How can you not already have pics for us? (I think of you as carrying one good camera all the time, except when conditions might damage it.)
There ARE a few on Facebook, as I'm sure the people here I'm friends with there will attest.

Biggey tolerates Bunny, unless he thinks he's hurting his "Little Brother. He is VERY protective of the kitten.

If the other cat was female, you could have had an Ansell and Gretel.
Priddy puddies, though.
There was a female named Sassy that Jackie wanted.
But, just like the two we got, she still has her front claws.
We were told she did not appreciate dogs.
They are lovely cats, Redwolf, and your little dog doesn't seem to feel too outnumbered by the. I am glad to hear they still have claws. Declawing cats/kittens is a deplorable habit and is illegal over here.
Woke up this morning and Ansel had climbed up the bed and slept on my pillow next to my head during the night.
Biggey slept on the bench at the foot of the bed.
They are attractive looking cats.
We took Ansel to the vet this morning as a precaution and it was a good thing we did.
The meds they gave us at the shelter for him wouldn't do anything for what he has and at the dosage they had us giving him, we would have been burying him by the end of the week. Ten times the dosage he would have been on if it was viral.
Instead, he has Kitty Herpes. It's not fatal, but not curable but we now have the right meds to help him get over this outbreak and prevent future ones.
They also told us he is only six weeks old, and now I get to feed him kitty formula in a syringe to help build up his immune system and put some weight on him.
So the wee one and I have lots of time to bond.
As soon as we can afford it, Biggey goes in for a check-up, too.
(When I get a pet, I realize it's for at least a decade)
They've taken over the laundry pile for cat naps.

If it fits...
I think Biggey is especially fine looking.
And I have no doubt Ansel, with his youthful energy, is lots of fun.
Bought the kitties a catnip mouse today.
Because it's full of cheap medicine, I decided to name it Eorl.
Ansel has shown a REMARKABLE ability to play computerized solitaire.

You are in for a lot of fun, Redwolf !
This is not staged. They catnap together like this in between being little terrors. Especially now that Ansil's breathing is improving and we got his

Why Biggey is called Biggey.
And he's still under a year old!

Ansel takes a few minutes to recharge before going on another destructive rampage.

Such as destroying EVERYTHING remotely floral in the house, for just ONE example.

Ansel has taken to singing classic rock songs
"In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle the quiet jungle
The lion sleeps tonight."

"You WILL have to sleep eventually. THEN I will have my REVENGE!"
The Lion Sleeps tonight, made I smile. I am currently watching The Lion King with 6YO grandson.
Ansel is a snugglebunny.
And he has the LOUDEST purr I've ever heard in a domestic house cat of ANY size!

He's probably ate an outboard motor when you weren't looking.
While redecorating my home office, we had a small accident with a paint tray of white ceiling paint that was compounded when Ansel got into the
Which lead to the first bath either have known since we got them.
LOL! Years ago one of mine fell into a bucket of wallpaper paste - came out looking like a punk-rocker with spikey hair !
Cats just love to help with D.I.Y.
Who knew Ansel was a purist when it comes to holiday decorating?

Sounds about right, Redwolf, especially the bit about the straight-jacket !

Biggey in the glow of the Christmas lights, Dec. 7, 2013
For those interested in tech specs: Canon 40D with Canon 70-200 f4 1/8 of a second at f4 at 3200 ISO, handheld.
Years ago, my family had to give up the use of a live Christmas tree because our cat felt a compulsion to pee on it.
Our decorations are 100% artificial

(about 1/3 of our decorations are battery powered at that)
Our tree is all natural plastic and metal. (thanks for the foto specs, RW, I might have a go at taking a piccy of our tree. The grandchildren did a great job of decorating it yesterday!
6:15 a.m. the day after we set it up.

So far, so good.
*Knocks on Wood*
Biggey is content to sit on the tree skirt and pretty much play with the hanging unbreakable ornaments.
After Jackie gave Ansel a two swat spanky after pulling him out of the tree, he hasn't climbed it again.

Sometimes, you just need a kitten to climb up on your chest, purr incessantly, and refuse to go away.
Ansel is VERY good at this.
If I try to put him down, he goes and stands in front of my monitor until I give in and let him back on my chest.
He is simply gorgeous, Redwolf!
