Kate and I have been thinking for a while now about maybe adopting cats once we were settled into our new apartment. Two weekends ago, we went to a local cat shelter and adopted a pair of kittens. Photos below; the brown one is a female named Diana, and the orangish one is a male named Mars.
Not only are they INCREDIBLY CUTE, but they're very sweet-tempered and affectionate, at least when they can spare the time from chasing cat toys and play-fighting with each other. There's really nothing like having a pair of purring cats curled up on your lap together.
Kittens make everything better.
