It's Been A Whole Year!!!

Star and Cosmo, a year ago just little "babies"...

...and here they are today, almost all grown up!

It seems so hard to believe that it's been a whole year now since we brought our babies back home from Columbus. The time has flown and even though there were times, while being sleep deprived, that I wondered what the heck I had gotten myself into, it's been a wonderfully joyful learning experience!

Just hangin' in the kitchen!

To say the kids have grown is an understatement as you can tell from the pictures posted. The originals were taken in early August 2008 and at that time Cosmo weighed in at 5lbs, while Star weighed about 7.5 lbs. You see them as they are now one year later with Cosmo weighing 17lbs and Star weighing 13lbs. This means we started with 12.5 lbs of kitty one year ago and we now have 30lbs of kitty and still gaining, amazing!!! :-)

Star used to be so much larger than Cosmo, not anymore!!

They are such a joy and delight to live with we cannot imagine not having them as a huge part of our lives. They rescued us from our deep sorrow at having lost our first MC Gabriel, and are a blessing every day, even when they are "naughty" :-)

Thanks Mickey for all YOU have done, and for these fur children you gave us, you are the best! Now....I have my eye on your little "Joy", what a beauty, hey Mark what do you think if......

A year ago I could hold them both very comfortably... I am covered in "fur babies" when I hold them both at the same time!
