Meet our wonderful kitties!

Elinor's Kitty, Sylvie

This is Elinor's kitty, Sylvie (aka "Sylvie Pronk Widget", aka "Sylvie Underfoot", aka "Kitten Insane"). She is a tiny little Burmese kitty, born 2004-10-19, so she is 15 years, 1 month, and 19 days old today. She grew up with her three brothers and her mom & aunt at a home in Riverside, and came to live with Elinor & Carl when she was 8½ weeks old.

Carl's Kitty, Mirabelle

This is Carl's kitty, Mirabelle (aka "Fuzzy the WonderCat"). She is a Domestic Short Hair, white & tabby kitty, born 2004-09-04, so she is 15 years, 3 months, and 3 days old today. She grew up at Lucky Kitty Rescue, in La Mesa, with her brother and 3 other kittens, and came to live with Carl & Elinor when she was 15 weeks old.

These wonderful kittens live with us in whichever cottage we happen to be in. They are friends, partners in crime -- they love careening around the house -- and investigators of corners of the house we had foolishly assumed were inaccessible. And they're so cute when they're curled up together. Mirabelle's in charge of watching the neighborhood and teaching her little sister (she's 6½ weeks older) to be a proper cat, and Sylvie's in charge of chaos, finding sunny spots, and licking noses.
