Drum roll, please.
Introducing . . . . .
Their personalities fit their names perfectly.
Alice in Wonderland ...
brave, practical, funny, adventurous.
Dorothy is using the wastebasket as a cat fort.
Dorothy Gale, who was swept away to Oz, and made success of the situation ...
resourceful, friendly, and kind.

These kittens are the most wonderful things that could have appeared here right now. No one can be stressed or depressed when there are kittens around. I wish I could show you the Mini-WWF battle that's going on between them from the middle of the bedroom floor to the bathtub. Dorothy just jumped up from behind the shower curtain, and shoved Alice off the edge of the tub. They sound like ponies as they run back and forth.

The babies are both working to develop their computer skills. I absolutely have to close my lap top if I'm not right here, because I never know what I'll come back to. Within the past few days, one or both of them has (1) changed my screen resolution, (2) turned off the wireless connection, (3) edited a blog post, (4) typed a whole row of Question Marks (think about that one ... it requires the shift key), and (5) tried to send email. I'm fairly certain that they would figure out how to download Kitty porn if left to their own for too long.
[edited to add ... I had to scramble to fix this post a few minutes ago, because Alice published it while it was still a draft, before I could add any of the photos.]
Alice wants to help.
Alice, gnawing on my knee.
I'll get back to writing about the garden and all of my renovation projects tomorrow. Thank you for indulging me this time to show you the kitties. This is a big deal around here, and I REALLY wanted to share it with all of you. Expect to see more antics with Alice and Dorothy from time to time, with lots of photos, as they grow and become full-fledged members of the menagerie. Maggie and Amy are NOT going to be happy.
Dorothy in the sunshine.
I visited a friend's rose garden on Thursday, and I have pretty pictures to show you. I think I should have them up tomorrow. Till then ...
Have a great weekend.
