& Charlie Brown
Thibault and Blue are doing quite
well. Thibault is a lot like his father, particularly in
his coloring and Blue is very much like him in personality.
Both are sweet as can be, want to be in on anything and
everything you are doing and will be wonderful dogs... oops, I
mean cats, when they grow up. For now, they are still
kittens, running around clearing off our desks and "eating". <G>
Came home today for lunch and

Mom. Kitten 2 is more like Dad, a bit lighter in color and
Kitten 3, the blue boy, must have been from the milkman. <G>

them, so all we can do right now is to continue feeding Mom and
hope things keep moving forward.
No pictures yet, but this is
Charlie's first litter of "Grand Champion" kittens...<G>
Not like we haven't already planned out their show careers!!
Pictures coming soon!
