All about Hoofbeats & Footprints

A Matching Pair

Never thought I would want new cats, but this pair of beautiful four-week old Kittens have quickly changed my mind.

A darling boy and girl that are nearly identical are being fostered by a friend of mine, along with their sweet mother and calico sibling, “Peter the Great” and “Lily” had a field trip to the manor this afternoon for a photo shoot.



Lily was the talkative one, while Peter was the explorer. At first they were overwhelmed with the huge world around them. After all, this is the first time they’ve spent time outside. I could clearly see that Peter will love the outdoors. Lily seems more of a companion cat.



While laying on the ground to get a different perspective I had a tough time as they both kept walking quickly right into my lens hood. Sigh…models.

One at the ready with the camera, the other picking up the kittens and setting them back in place. With a constantly moving kitten this was pretty challenging.

But so adorable !! May just have to make room for them at the manor.

  1. O. M. G. Room, indeed! It’s been such a long time for me to have kittens, since we always adopt the older sweeties. I forgot how BLUE those eyes are….. Oh my…. ohmyohmy…

  2. I can hear their sweet mewing from here – how adorable – and how many snuggles did those two get during their outing I wonder, lol! 🙂
