From kitten to cat

Today is Miss Susuwatari’s – soot sprite’s – first birthday! She’s gone from being a bright-eyed kitten to an equally bright-eyed young cat. Following is a retrospective over the past nine months that she has been with Kanoko and I.

Susu - first day    Susu’s first day with us, two months old (I had been told she was older; usually it’s best to wait until a kitten is three months old before separating it from its mother) – 29 October 2011

Miss Susu Long-Legs    Two months later – 1 January 2012

Susu    Eight months old – 29 April 2012

Susu one year old    One year old today!

And now for those adorable eyes.

Just over four years ago, Mister Puff-Ball, Kanoko, had been found by a neighbor, abandoned in an apartment building entry. No one ever claimed him. Here’s how much he’s grown and changed in that time – his fur really was dull at the start; he probably hadn’t been fed very well.

Irresistible Kanoko    Today, 25 August 2012. Amazing how he’s blossomed, isn’t it?

They’re both utterly adorable lovebugs, such wonderful companions.

    Yeah, I guess you could say that Kanoko’s “blossomed”. :D He’s blossomed in every direction possible (= not exactly a small cat). Gorgeous as well as obviously well fed. :D

    Thanks for the m.à.j. of your sweeties.

    Hehe :) He “only” weighs 6 kilos!! Bringing in him and Susu when they both want to stay outside is quite the adventure… big squiggly cat on one arm, smaller VERY-squiggly cat on the other, phew.
