…And then this happened.

Paul referred to this as a “triple event”: all three of the older kittens jumped onto him at more-or-less the same time.

The kittens love to sit on Paul’s shoulders. It doesn’t matter if he’s standing (as he is in this photo); they’ll jump or climb to get to where they want to be. Tootles, in particular, would spend all day as a shoulder cat if he was allowed to.

The kittens are about five months old in this photo, and they’re already almost as big as Harmony, our “tiny cat” (who isn’t all that tiny — she’s just smaller than the other adult cats). The’ll get a lot bigger, although not too big, since there’s a tendency for dark-furred “thistle cats” to be somewhat smaller than the white ones. (Martin and Lily are white-furred thistle cats. They’re about a month younger than the Trio, but Martin is probably gonna be huge when he’s an adult, just like his father Mr. Fluffy and his uncle Logan.)

About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
