Bilal & Shlomo, Lomo & Lal…

..the adventures of 2 growing cats in northern utah

Category : lomo & lal & the old curmudgeons

new photos, finally.

i captured this today.. the 4 sleeping in a row. amazing that mr. alpha was willing to sleep right next to shlomo-lomo. btw, prescription that’s – from closest to furthest.. old bitty ava p, visit web bilal, troche shlomo, max.

and this. shlomo is growing up. he’s finally starting to rub against my legs as i walk around the apartment. i found him doing this today with his brother bilal.

notice the front leg over bilal like that? i just think that’s adorable. oh, and btw, lal and lomo really are unsepearable.. wherever lal goes, shlomo isn’t far behind. i think it is simply adorable.

pile of cats.

yes, shop i’m in the middle of a huge endurance test.  before i go back to my phd comprehensive exam – i’ve started a section over there —> links to other choice moms – those who are already, or who are like me – ttc.  gotta blog?
while the other 3 were curled up together (awake after i woke them up)

max glared at me over the top of my computer (yes, healing
he was glaring, moments before i took this photo)

i’ve been thinking about shlomo’s personality lately. he seems to be the happy-go-lucky type.. not goofy happy-go-lucky, myocarditis but just happy. his purr is louder than all 3 combined, i’ve never heard him growl or hiss, and he’s bound and determined to become close to all of the other cats. even mr alpha-i-hate-all-cats. when i adopted him i wasn’t taken with him like i was bilal, but he quickly found a spot in my heart, and as he’s around longer, that spot is gaining a stonger hold. he’s growing up, but he’s still little. i’d like him to stay this little forever, but i think that would wear me out. i think, though, that when he gets big, he’ll still be happy and purrry. i hope he’s independent too.

here he is, having worked on old-bitty ava:

here he is, working on alpha-growls-and-yells max.

lomo and ava p.

shlomo wants to be friends with ava p, recipe the 10 year old girl around here.

you should know that in the following pictures, ava was growling the whole time.

max even got ticked at shlom for trying to make nice with the girl.

this is one self confident little bugger and this was his reaction to the growling and hissing going on around him.

and no, bilal hasn’t been forgotten, not in the least.
