MEET HANA'S 2ND LITTER
whole litter is affectionate and people-oriented, and are very gentle and
Aragorn, Arwen, Legolas, Gandalf & Eowyn at 3 months
Here are all five kittens at 7 weeks of age. Left
to right, they are Gandalf, Legolas, Arwen, Aragorn and Eowyn:
Legolas loves to be held and petted, and
becomes a limp purring rag whenever you pick him up. If he's standing up
and you scratch him behind the ears, he leans into your hand and slowly
melts until he is lying flat on his belly. This has earned him the (not
very flattering) nickname of "Legless" :-)
Aragorn is the "fearless
leader" of the litter. He is the first to explore any new situation
-- although Legolas is usually right behind him.
Aragorn loves to be
petted, but because of his busy agenda, he usually doesn't stay in
anyone's lap very long.
Arwen is the smallest in the
litter -- but what she lacks in size, she makes up for in energy and
spunk. She is usually right there with the boys when it comes to fighting
over The Feather Toy. (She doesn't seem to mind ending up underneath
Eowyn is larger than her
"baby sister" Arwen, but no less energetic. The two girls are a
pretty good match for their obnoxious brothers, though Eowyn does her best
to stay out of the way when the boys are playing Pounce-And-Flatten.
Eowyn likes people pretty well, though she
is not 100% convinced that being picked up by our kids is a good
Gandalf is much fuzzier than his
siblings, which somehow makes him the cutest. Perhaps that's also due to
his sweet, laid-back personality. He is quieter and calmer than his
brothers and his sister Arwen. Our entire family is madly in love
Gandalf's nickname is "Mush"
because he immediately becomes completely limp and boneless when you pick
him up. He purrs almost constantly, and so loudly that sometimes it's hard
to tell exactly where the sound is coming from!
