Your boys are absolutely gorgeous! How lucky they are to have "found" you!
They photograph so well. I love the photo of them on the laundry. I have
two brothers (littermates) who will be 6 yrs. old next month. I adopted
them about a year ago from one of those pet clinics (their owner was an
older woman who had health problems). Anyway, I agree with you about
personalities. Tigger is much more laid back and more of a mush. Simba is
mushy on his terms and sometimes he's a little jumpy. They run around after
eachother and make funny noises too!

Thanks for sharing the story and their pictures!
