Happy but tired after returning home from their stay at the vet.
Merry & Molly turn 7 months old on Monday. They are almost adults now, and the time has flown by. They went in for their spay operation on November 2nd, and we were like two worried parents waiting to hear everything went fine, and it did.

Their operation was on a Monday and they stayed overnight. We picked them up Tuesday afternoon and spent the remainder of the week at home with them. They were fine, but trying to keep two young kittens from too much play time while they recovered was exhausting for Rob and I!

It’s been almost a month now, and all is well and back to normal. It’s been interesting for us to watch their different personalities develop over the last few months. They may be sisters and very bonded, but they are definitely two very different cats with two very different personalities.

Molly is our “hippie". She’s a lover not a fighter, and we laughed when we found out Merry was teaching her how to hiss at the vet when they were there for their operations. Molly would prefer to purr, and when her motor gets running it can be very loud. Molly doesn’t seem to need or want much. She loves her food, to be brushed, lots of sleep and to be loved. She also has a fascination with the computer screen. She’s one very happy go lucky girl!

I'd like to play with that kitty!
Merry on the other hand is a total “diva”. Everything from purrs to playing is on her terms. She prances instead of walks and has a fascination with water. She doesn’t seem to need as much sleep as Molly, and can play fetch as well as any dog, until of course she gets bored with you. When she does want your attention, she lets you know it and can be very loving.

I quite often find Merry in the sink. 
We are slowly seeing the kitten craziness slip away as they grow up, and that’s both a relief and sad at the same time. We are looking forward to a sense of calmness in the house again, with just a little Merry & Molly mayhem from time to time to keep things interesting.

Always ready to play!
