Sunday Selfie - Tommy and Teaghan

Sunday Selfie - Tommy and Teaghan

First, Happy Father's Day to our new Dad and to all those celebrating this day.  And our new human beans are celebrating the most blessed father of all - our Lord, today and every day.  

We are still contemplating what to name our new blog and if it will be a full new website or just Blogger. So we will continue to post here until that name and the best path to go on pops into the Mom's head.  She liked the name "The Two Ts" but that ends up looking like "The Twots".  Hahaha. Plus that name is already taken if you can believe it!  Feel free to post any suggestions if you would like.  

Tommy and Teaghan just turned 16 weeks old on June 16!   Some humans wanted to know how to tell them apart.  Teaghan is on the left and Tommy on the right.  See how he has a white heart on his back?  When they went for their exam at the v.e.t., the doc thought it looked like a "T".  This picture is not a selfie but the Mom has been taking a squillion pictures of them and this shows how big they are getting already.  They were sharing one dish here but usually they each get their own dish.  

 These are a little more selfie-like.  Tommy is caught in the act of sticking his tongue out.  He actually was standing there on the stool in a gopher pose.  He's a funny boy!

 Teaghan is sitting in her favorite spot on the dining room chair getting ready for her after brunch nap.  She's harder to get a good selfie of so this was a good catch.  All the other close ups true selfie style were too blurry.  Lots more pictures to come.

Teaghan and Tomas' First Week at Home

Teaghan and Tomas
Born 24-Feb-2017
First day of their new forever home - 03-Jun-2017

 Teaghan and Tomas (or Tommy) are now home!  Here's how their first week went: 

First, Mommy Brenda (MB) and Daddy (aka the food man) went to Mommy Colleen's (MC's) house to pick them up.  It was a 2-1/2 hr trip by car.  It was a pretty ride and they were excited to finally meet T & T and Mommy Colleen and MC's Mom too.  

Their first meeting was very nice.  Mommie Colleen brought T&T out with their furry beautiful Mom McKenzie.  She made them feel nice and relaxed and gave them lots of love while they were waiting to be introduced to the new 'rents.  Everyone was nice and relaxed before they went into the carrier to get ready for the ride to their new house.  This is the picture of the Ts with McKenzie in a carrier on the table while they all got to know each other's smells.

After a nice visit, and lots of love and instructions and gifts, and more loves, and friendship, it was time to go. Here they are in their carrier while on the way to their new home. Teaghan was as quiet as could be while Tomas sang the song of his people every 5 minutes or so and tested the metal to make sure it would hold them both until they arrived at their new home.

Wow!  Once they got to their new home, they had the joy of discovering a new place to cozy up.  It was a gift from their new Godmother, Charlotte, who used to watch us and now will watch them sometimes when the 'rents go away on vacation.  They seemed to take to it quite well didn't they?  Look at Teaghan trying to get into the tube when Tomas had already claimed it as his own!


Yep - there was plenty of room in there for the both of them!


Eventually, they made their way to the bed and checked out everything from top to bottom!


One night they started to discover other things like the light.  Who knew that the little shiny things on the lamp would capture their attention so much?  


Little by little they settled in even more.  Look at Teaghan showing off her toesies!


By day 3 Teaghan was relaxed enuf to just fall asleep and hang out of the kitty condo!


By day 4, T&T were finally let out of the 'rents bedroom and access to Mommy's home office.  They really liked it in there cuz it was nice and bright and they were looking at all kinds of things out of the window including birdies flying by, and cars going by and birdies oh my!


Here they are again just chillin' out in their kitty condo after a big eating session and ready for some much needed sleep.



Then came the day they went to get their first visit with their new V.E.T.  The vet tech (Cyndy) was really nice and remembered Mommie and Daddy (the food man) from when they were there with us.  She made them feel so comfortable and she loooooved T & T so much and wanted to hold them forever.  Daddy was so happy cuz he got to hold Tomas too!  Now you have to know that Daddy doesn't smile too much so this was a good time :-).  Everything checked out ok and we and they knew it would because Mommie Colleen is the bestest Mommie EVER and T&T were fine.


Day six and here are Teaghan and Tomas hanging out together in Mommies home office first thing in the morning.   



Every day is a new step and a new learning.  Some endings (leaving home) have to happen to have a new beginning (different home).  Love abounds always.  We learn and grow.  We live and love.
Now we leave these two lovely blessed kittens to start their new journey.  

Stay tuned for the beginning of their new blog and a journey into their new lives.

Purrs and love from over the bridge,
Beau Beau and Angie
