Even if you aren’t a cat lover, it would be hard not to fall for these two.
So what happens when you ARE a cat lover?
You turn to mush 20,000 times a day.
What are the chances of landing a brother and sister tuxedo cat duo, with the girl long haired and the boy short?
Lake is calm, cool, collected, the protector, is well groomed with that stylin’ haircut and is gonna be a big guy. He has the softest fur I’ve ever touched.
Skye is a little on the cautious side, hides when there’s a bang, and is a tiny little thing. She’s a little on the scruffy side, which makes me smile.
Two opposites. Two personalities. Yet they are both so incredibly mannered, LOVE to be cuddled, and very, very gracious. How did I get so lucky?
These pictures don’t show their true size by a longshot. They are much smaller than they appear here. It’s hard to grasp. Ok, nevermind grasp, it’s hard to catch them without going full tilt! It may be awhile before I can get them into an actual junk photo shoot, but I’ll keep trying.
I just ADORE them!
So… why Lake and Skye?
Well, we are given gifts on this earth that we can’t measure nor even fathom. Nature simply defies description. Mountains, beaches, trees, and two of my favorites… lakes and the sky.
When I’m around a lake, a wave of calm sweeps over me. I probably wouldn’t get much work done if I lived near one because I’d never stop staring at it. Water brings me into a calm, peaceful state.
How do you even describe the sky? So deep, ever changing, amazing in every way. There is nothing more calming than to lay on your back in the grass and watch the clouds take new shape.
It only seemed natural to name two little tykes after something that brings me the same amount of joy as my favorite elements of nature. Their names will be a constant reminder of how precious and amazing life is, and to appreciate the simple stuff.
I was still a little unsure of the names, and resisted announcing them, but they’re the only ones that have stuck and that I think sound cool. Then again I keep calling him Big Guy and her Crazy Girl / Spin Cycle, and my son is still calling them Figaro and Orca (LOL) so whatever!
Well, who says a cat’s name has to be set in stone anyway? Maybe they can be called anything we feel like calling them at that given time.
Anyway, they are a blast and are soooo perfect for us!
The only thing we need now are screens for french doors and a front door. We are dyin’ without our doors wide open! Any recommendations? Anyone have the kind that retract?
