Let's talk about cats, baby.

So scott_lynch and I have adopted three kittens: Molly, Duncan, and Gurney, variously known as The Swarm, the Breakfast Mafia, and Mayken, Inc. They've been with us for a little over a month now, and they're pretty great, frankly. They have a twitter feed at @kjittens if that's your sort of thing.

Duncan and Gurney are littermates, about six months now. They're cuddly purrbeasts who like to supervise everything. Duncan is black with some messy white splashes that make him look like he's been in his tuxedo on a long night out drinking with Cole Porter as played by Kevin Kline. He's a tidy little beast with an anime nose. Gurney is rangier and seems to be a solid gray until the light hits him and you realize that he's actually a broken-stripe mackerel tabby whose markings are in two almost similar shades of gray, except one is more silvery and one is more matte.

Molly is a stocky dilute tortie, and a semiferal. She's about a month older than the boys--seven months now--and we're working very hard to warm her up to humans. Slowly, slowly: she will occasionally allow petting now. If you are lying down under a blanket and don't make eye contact. Or if she's busy eating and you scrunch down and make yourself small.

This is a major victory, because she's basically a slightly less angry version of Shadow Unit's Angry Kitteh come to life. She's more of a Skittery Kitteh.

She came into rescue after being netted on a street in New Jersey, and somehow was lucky enough to make it from a city animal control shelter there to the cat rescue in Connecticut that we contacted when looking for kittens. They housed her with the two boys, and the three bonded firmly enough that it would have been kind of monstrous to break them up. So we have three cats.

The GRD is still not, and never will be, catsafe, so we have a divided house again. Containment protocols! Fortunately, it's an old house with a lot of doors.

So many doors.

They're all gorgeous!

They are beautiful.

They are wonderful-looking cats.
Those are some mighty sweet kittens.
They are beautiful kitties! Congrats!
Please to fill up my internet with kitteh pictures, pleasethankyou.
The tuxedo looks like one I used to have, and the other two look like two of the current barn cats. Then there's Lucky. A former feral, his mama and sibling were killed by one of the barn owner's dogs (Jack Russell terrier, out hunting gophers). Lucky is a happy tabby and white buzzer cat who knows he's scored...saw him in the house today, with his own bed on his girl's bed.
What gorgeous cats. I had become confused about whether you had two or three -- was the solid gray one just Molly in light that didn't show her markings? -- so this is helpful, though the initial announcement did mention three. I'm glad you got them as a unit; obviously poor Molly has been through enough already.

P.
That top one is especially adorable!
I've been following the kitten twitter posts with much glee, both for the commentary and the truly adorable kitties. Thank you for sharing, they helped me with a really rough week.
What gorgeous darlings! I'm glad they have you, and you them.
Uh-huh. You're just doomed, right?
You could put out a calendar of these pictures! Congrats on being owned by cats once again; looks like you have a lively, loving rampage of kittens.
They are, of course, gorgeous and funny and lovely, like all kittens. Congratulations on being adopted by them!

That may be the best cat description I've ever encountered.
