Play time! Pistachio and Peanut. As far as we can figure Peanut is the only boy. Looks like hes not going to be totally black, because one of his legs is getting a wee little bit of stripes on it, and his face has wee little patches of brown. Pistachio is still everyone’s favorite!
“Ok, one more picture for my fans”
“”Blah. I’m just too tired now”
“Really, no more pictures please. Meet my agent Walnut! whispers: Walnut make them take the camera away!”
Peanut is also a loner. The other two wrestle and play, and Peanut goes about his business. When he gets tired he goes and shoves himself between the other two while they are trying to wrestle, and he goes to sleep, making them break it up and go to sleep also. 😀
And Mammy! I have to keep remembering to call her Mammy, because every time I say Mama when I mean Mammy the children ask, “are you talking about the new mama, or the old one?” 😛 I wish I could get a better picture of her eyes being open. They are outlined black, and she looks just like an Egyptian pharaoh!!!
And here’s the potential father of the bunch. Our outdoor cat Oreo!!! He’s the one that started bringing Mammy around to the porch to eat, and then he would stand guard for her so none of the other outdoor cats could eat til she got her fill. Oreo is a wonderful cat. Then there’s his sister cat Cookie, that looks Exactly like him, except when she turns around to face you she has a brown patch on her face, much like Pistachio’s. So when we first started feeding them, one would show up, and then the other, and we thought they were both Oreo for a while. Then when we discovered the second black and white cat wasn’t the same, and we needed another name… we came up with Cookie… because Oreo is a cookie, and Cookie is a cookie. Yeah, I know. “Moooooooom that’s weird” But ya know, all the kiddo’s keep calling them Oreo and Cookie just the same. 😛
