A little reflection

2 weeks ago I found these two little ones huddled together in a cage and in not so good health.

Today, they're happy and healthy and I'm thrilled to be able to give them a loving home, with a cool big brother and sister.


Maks in his new favorite spot:

And Kiska and Maks in their favorite pastime:

I'm glad I have them in my life.

Yeah!!!! CUTE!!:cloud9::cloud9: I am so glad you decided to stick this out and didn't listen to your critics! Bless your heart and I hope they bring you loads of joy through the years as I'm sure they will. Maks is ever so cute I LOVE ORANGE KITTIES!!! Kiska squishy face :lovestruck:

I'm glad I didn't listen too. When Vlad and Oksana were this size they weren't play fighting so much as Vlad was trying to dominate Oksana all the time. Even though now they adore each other, I missed the fun kitty play fighting stage.

Maks and Kiska are all over the place and they're fun to watch. People will get over my having 4 cats, and besides, I'm the one who has to deal with them so :p to them.

Maks is sure a cutie and I think Kiska is turning into a little chatterbox.

The looks on their faces says it all! Sweet little bundles of fur...

Kitty wrestling is so amusing to watch.:laughing:

Maks has staked his claim to that little pyramid bed too. Vlad only used it on a rare occasion, and I can't remember seeing Oksana in it more than once or twice. He seems to really like it, so I'm very happy I kept it.

I just love how Kiska has those brown stripes as well. Her pads look like they have pink and black on some of them. Usually we see a pad one color only.

I can't wait to see more pictures of these two. And esp of them interacting with Vald and Okasana.

P.S. I love the spelling of Maks name, too. :thumbs up

She does have an interesting coloring to her. She looks like a tiny mix between a leopard and a tiger. I've never seen paw pads like hers. I didn't know they could be bi-colored. They're brown and pink, very cute. Maks' are a light pink.

I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be able to take some pictures of all four of them in the same shot at least.

And thanks. I'd wanted to name him Max, and in my search for a Russian name, came upon the spelling on a Russian baby name site which spelled it with the ks instead, and I thought it was pretty unique.

The spelling "Max" is so common.....I love the Russian way of doing it. :thumbs up I live in a Russian community but most of them give their pets English names. Are you Russian? :o

I'm not Russian, but I guess I take after my dad. When he named me he thought my name was Russian too, so it seems we both like Russian names.

Giving them all Russian names started with Vlad and Oksana. Vladimir is one of my favorite all time names, as well as Oksana. When I brought home Kiska and Maks, I wanted them to be part of the family not just physically, but with their names.

They grow so fast. I feel like it was only yesterday hen Vlad and Oksana were kittens, and now they're such big kitties.

This morning the Dymanic Duo are exerting their authority and chasing the kitties a bit and swatting lightly at them. LOL, I guess they're telling them who the BIG CATS are around here.

I've already managed to get a pretty good picture and i've got the camera ready for the next good shot. :D
