Because people have been asking how Daisy and Basil are. They are… fluffy. The evenings are starting to get cooler now and their coats have filled in to keep them toasty. They’ve been outside in the pens munching nonstop on fresh greens for the past 3 months and will probably get very upset when we have to bring inside for the cold season 🙁 The last two pictures are from when they first went out in May, after the spring wool harvest. You can see that Daisy (right) mostly shed hers, so has an even-looking guard coat left. Then there’s …

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a bunny update, huh? These are actually from a month ago, in early September. Still, you can see how much Daisy and Basil have grown in three weeks or so between my last post and this one. Will try to get some current pictures to show how much fluffier they are now!
Misu getting ready for bed.
From January 2008. A neighbor’s young black cat came over to visit and attempted to play with 6-month old Misu. She just stood there staring and looking befuddled while he tried to poke her into action. Sigh.

Misu, January 2008. At some point, the hubby started letting her burrow into the front of his hoodies, kangaroo style. She would keep doing this even when she’d doubled in size. We also resigned ourselves to the possibility that she would never learn to lie down without her feet sticking out frog-like. Lastly, she started getting more frequent visits from the other feline residents of our apartment complex. We’d had her fixed early, so saw this as a good chance to socialize her. One black kitten came in to eat her food and try to play, an older grey tabby …

Introducing Casa Kerfuffle’s two newest arrivals, Daisy and Basil! They are Finnish angora half-siblings. Daisy is a tortoiseshell girl and Basil is a fawn-colored boy. She’s about two weeks younger than him and tons braver. I had to get all paparazzi in the nest box to get his photo 😛 Both are tres fluffy, which will be a big plus when winter comes!

More classic Misu. These are from December 2007. As you can see, we tried unsuccessfully to expose her to nature. She decided grass was evil, climbed the hubby like a tree and demanded loudly to be taken back home. There is also the first of many shots of her in her favorite “frog position” of lying down. More belly exposed to the tiles, I suppose. She started getting a bit more rotund around then as well, and we could start to see how she was going to grow into those huge paws and ears. Last but not least, there is …

“It’s been days since you’ve posted to Pigmonkeys,” the hubby declared in a vaguely disappointed way yesterday. Sometimes I wonder how he can be a more hardcore cat lady than I will ever be. So, to make up for this apparent transgression, here is some classic Misu. These are from November 2007, when we adopted her. She was about three months old at the time. I’ve tossed a few old pics on the VK blog and Facebook in the past, but haven’t ever tried to pull several in chronological order before. Guess this is probably the best place to be doing it!
Little pink spotted jelly bean feet!
Coco gets super clingy after we get back from trips. She hasn’t stopped mewling and begging for pats since we returned this morning.
