Absolutely. It's that time of year, the season for slowing down and enjoying the little things.

Zev is Hebrew for Wolf and Shira means poetry, their "shelter" names that I liked from the start and hubby didn't come up with anything better





Zev on the left, Shira on the right. Shira came home with us the next day (after being spayed) and Zev came home several days later because of some minor eye surgery (his inner eye lid won't retract).



Play time! (the living room looks like a kitty daycare these days )



Zev with inner eyelid adhesed, final eye check up on Thursday.

They are cuties!

I hope Zev's eye heals up okay. Poor thing.

And now you are owned by 2 kitties. Life will never be the same.

I think the eyelid is there to stay, but it does seem to be healing up nicely. And it doesn't nothing to keep me from referring him to as one of the "two terrors"

Wait until they both get the "night terrors" at the same time.

Does he seem to see okay out of it? Do they know what happened to the eye?

So far they have been GREAT with sleeping through the night... but I'm sure it won't last

The vet says he has sight out of that eye (I'm guessing somewhat limited) but they were rescued with very little info about them provided by the rescuer so we don't know if he was born that way or if it's due to some kind of trauma/injury...

I wondered if they were from a stray litter. I'm glad you gave them a good forever home.

I looked at William in the dictionary and that is the way you pronounce it. For now, well, for a long time it'll remain.

Thank you.

They are beautiful! If they aren't already, they'll become the loves of your life.

Zev's eye will be fine. Whether it heals to normal or heals and stays this way, he'll be a happy boy. I've had rescues with worse birth challenges and they've all lived long happy healthy lives

Just be prepared for the Kitty-anapolis 500 (aka the thundering herd)

The laser pointer is especially fun for getting the Kitty Raceway going up and down our long hallway

Yes, Zev's eye is healing up nicely. The inner eyelid was was somewhat swollen and very red the first time we visited him. It's now barely pink, he's barely teary-eyed, and has been feeling great since we brought him home

We lost our two long-time companions (Corey and Minerva) this past late summer / early fall and the house has been way too quiet since. But it's been a loooong time since I've had a kitten and the first time for having two at once Good thing they sleep alot!

We got an inch where I work last night, about half an inch at home. While it was all gone at home this afternoon, looks like no change at work. Roads are still covered and still plenty on the ground to track suspects.

I had the wonderful job of being a passenger to Eugene today (the boss drove). We were fine until a bit north of Albany, where it was more snow and ice on the roads than just wet. There must have been 10 spin outs, including one 18-wheeler. He was still there when we went by on the way home about 4 hours later.

I haven't had more than a dusting where I am, but I dread the ice in the morning since I get to drive to Vancouver, WA.....we're supposed to do a work dinner in downtown Portland tomorrow, but if this keeps up, we'll pass...none of us want to get caught in this mess.

Hibernation sounds perfect.

Do they not plow the highways up there? I got called asking to go about 30 miles in to OR last night, but as I don't have my 4x4, I couldn't go. I know NDOT didn't start plowing down here till around midnight, which didn't help me a bit.

Very few, not worth the cost/overhead for the amount of snow we get. It's very odd to have days of snow like this, where we get a lot of black ice in the main roads because stuff melts during the day and then re-freezes over night.

I'm telecommuting tomorrow (planned) and will probably ask to do the same on Wednesday -- my commute is 55 miles / 1 hour 15 mins each way and no, I don't want to do that in this stuff
