Tango's discovered a new game - its called lets hide in the Christmas Tree. Piglet and Squeak are too heavy to play that game, so they just knock the baubles down!
I think Squeak, Tango and Piglet must be hungry!
Here they are eating dinner....
Tango likes to hang his paws over things - here he is on the bannister
Tango and Squeak don't always fight... Sometimes, Squeak makes a nice bed.
Tango loves to attack Squeak, and seems to be terrorising him. Here they are beating each other up (again!)
Tango has made friends with Piglet (at last), and can often be found curled up next to his step-brother
Piglet and Tango fell asleep mid scrap by the looks of it. Piglet is yawning, not about to take a chunk out of Tango...
Tango is now allowed out, after having his injections. He's very very good at climbing, but is not so good at getting down. His current philosophy seems to be to just fall.
Piglet and Squeak have finally accepted Tango, and are regularly pounced upon by the ginger terror - here is Tango getting ready to pounce.
Tango enjoys playing in the bucket - here is him doing a Meerkat impression.
Tango ripped the fluffy tail off the mouse, makes a nice beard though!
Dirty old man!
He needed a bath though, as he smelt very strongly of 'cat' - and we hoped that Piglet and Squeak would accept him quicker as well... Fat Chance!!
How do I get down?
Piglet and Squeak are both growing well... Piglet is now up to 2.3KG, and Squeak is really putting on the weight, he is now 3KG!! Looking at the size of Squeak's feet, he's gonna be a big-un.
Piglet decided to go and climb our tree today - brave cat really - it was windy, and he almost got blown down 2 or 3 times. He made it back to terra-firma though.
Piglet and Squeak spend alot of their time pouncing on each others tails - here is Squeak in action on Piglet's tail.
Sometimes they want nothing to do with each other!
Sam put Piglet into Gini's hood, and he stayed there...
Still growing! Piglet is still lagging behind Squeak, but they are both doing well. They have also now learnt how to use the catflap, and enjoy wandering around the garden. Thankfully, they don't seem to be interested in going too far yet!
Here are Piglet and Squeak having a cuddle - I think they both fell asleep mid-fight
Squeak likes to come and keep me company on my desk during the day...
The little tikes are still growing well - Squeak is now up to 1.5kg, and Piglet is lagging behind still at 1.3kg. Sam brought them a couple of little mice yesterday, and Squeak has been playing with them ever-since - He keeps growling all the time whilst doing it though!
Piglet now weighs in at 1.15kg, and Squeak is up to 1.35kg - they are both just over 10 weeks old. Its been a while since the update, but we have been snapping away. Here are a few.
Here are another 2 entrants for Stuff on my Cat
Gini went mad whilst Richie was overseas, and brought a Cat activity centre, which now takes up most of the living room! These cats are spoilt!
Squeak and Piglet have a thing about Richie's bin - here is Squeak hiding
Squeak got grabbed by Sam, but he decided to escape!
Piglet wasn't quick enough!
Piglet and Squeak have been to the Vet for the first time. They are both healthy, and both confirmed as boys (we weren't 100% sure!) Neither of them were particularly impressed with having a thermometer shoved up their bums though! Squeak managed to bite the nurse who was giving him his worming tablet, and draw blood. Here they are waiting in the cat basket before their big adventure.
Meet Evil Piglet!
Well - it had to happen - I had to submit a pic to http://www.stuffonmycat.com
Gini took a picture of the brothers having a nice cuddle - awww...
Here is us having a nice fight - we do this alot when we are awake - it passes the time....
Ahhhh - a new bed...
But it needs something extra - like a pillow....
2 new arrivals today. We picked up Piglet and Squeak from a very nice family in Coulsdon. They are 2 brothers (we hope!), and were born on 16th November 2005, so are just about 7 weeks old.
We originally met them last Thursday, when we thought they were both girls. Originally, Piglet was known in the family as Tash, due to his white moustache, and Squeak had no name at all (so his working name was Blob.)
Squeak gained his name by being the noisiest kitten on the drive home (Piglet slept), whereas Piglet earned his by being greedy when we got home!
Piglet surprised us, by being the most timid and sleepy before we picked him up - then, as soon as we got him home, he was first out of the cat basket, and first to the food.
Squeak was the most boisterous of the litter of 5 when we first met him. He was also the loudest of the 2 in the car, and now seems to be playing underdog to Piglet - whether this will continue is anyones guess!
