Meet Gertie & Franz

more-cats

This weekend was a busy one – filled with hot dogs, long naps, and cuddly kittens.

Oh, yes! KITTENS.

Jeff and I adopted two tiny kitties on Saturday – polydactyl siblings, one boy and one girl. We named them Franz and Gertie. And they are oh-so-cute. It’s been fun getting to know their individual personalities, over the last couple of days, and chasing them around the house (and getting their little claws unstuck from blankets).

It was tough to pull myself away from their chubby paws this morning to get back to work, especially after the long weekend. But I managed. And I even have a few photos to share…

More photos to come on my Instagram. Lots of photos, I’m sure. I’ll try not to let it get to crazy-cat-lady status though. I promise.

P.S. If you live in the Jacksonville area, I highly recommend checking out Friends of Jacksonville Animals. They work with Animal Care and Protective Services to help thousands of homeless pets find permanent, loving homes.

How bizarre Julie. Well, it’s definitely a good name. 🙂 We call her Gert sometimes too. On another note…Don’t you love the polys’ little feet? I cannot get over it…they look like mittens.

We have a polydactyl cat named Gertie as well (well, Gertrude, but we always call her Gertie/Gert)! How cute. 🙂

So darling! Kittens are just the best. We adopted two in January and it’s made everything from cozy Sundays to busy weeknights a whole lot more fun.
