Frootbats x2

Here are a couple of photos of us enjoying the sun. :) As you can see, we both really like to lie on the fleece pad that Kaze sent to Dragonheart from the Siamese Cat Rescue.

Merlin: I am growing and growing, and my points on my face are becoming darker and more noticeable all the time! I'm still a lot smaller than Dragonheart, but I'm certainly larger than I was when I first came here. I like to eat all my kitten stinky goodness, and then I like to go and eat Dragonheart's crunchies. Vishus deer is very yummy! But when I try to eat Dragonheart's food, mom or dad brings me back to my plate, and gives me some more food if I need it. I eat some of my kitten crunchies, but I really prefer my stinky goodness, or Dragonheart's crunchies.

Merlin

Dragonheart: While I love having Merlin around - it's fun having someone to play with and curl up with - the crazy kitten seems to think that everything in the house belongs to him! I've had to properly educate him that, in fact, not everything belongs to him. He also likes to climb on top of me when I'm in mom's lap, and either sit closer to her in her lap, or lie down on top of me. I usually don't mind - when our mom sits with her legs extended and propped up on another chair, or on the couch with her legs extended, there is room for both of us.

We have to apologize for all those who have presented us awards in the last little while. Our secretary has fallen down on the job, and has lost the list she was keeping of who presented us with which award. So we are very sorry that we haven't acknowledged your wonderful awards. We do sincerely appreciate them and we are very honoured to have been presented with them. We promise to meow and meow at our secretary the next time we are honoured with an award, so that she takes care of it right away.

We have also been told that some people have problems accessing our blog in Internet Explorer. We have tested it in IE (although we use Firefox as our normal browser) and we have no problems viewing it. Still, we will try to get our secretary and coder to look at the code again on the weekend, or else try a new template. In the meantime, we would strongly recommend using Firefox. It is a great browser! It implements CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) so much better than IE.

We Ballicai love Firefox, too -- such a wonderful browser! *smile*

Those are beautiful pictures of you, Dragonheart and Merlin -- you two are beautiful and enchanting kitty brothers.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

What nice photos of the two of you. Do enjoy hearing and seeing Merlin growing up.
Yes, the Sherwood Shelter also uses Firefox, that way we can view all the bloggies.

Dear Merlin,

I can see your point is becoming darker, I like that~!!! You are getting more and more handsome~!!

Dear Dragonheart,

Your blog is not problem of viewing by me, just need to take many time to loading the whole page. But I think that is alright, I could wait and go see other friends blog first.
So, not problem here :)

I hope your beans could have more time to relax on weekend and be with you both.

Purr,
Adan

Daisy said...

We use Firefox too, and your page works fine for us.

I like how the sunshines are shining right through your frootbatty ears!

Eric and Flynn said...

Those are lovely Frootbat photos Dragonheart and Merlin.
We have problems with your blog freezing so we have to keep waiting for it to respond again.We use IE6 (IE7 made the computer keep crashing)We think a lot of our problem is the computer not IE because it is running a lot slower than it should. We are trying to sort it out.

Ramses said...

Oh you're so right as usual Dragonheart! When Isis came to live with me here, she too would steal my dry food and eat her own stinky goodness... Though I rather like her kitten dry food, so My Mummy had to look around and find a grown-up cat food that had nearly the same nutritional levels as kitten food and mix it. Now we'z both love it, but Tigmut'hep doesn't - which is ok as he has Rx dry food given to him a little at a time so he doesn't do his usual trick of scoff the dry food and be sick!

Oh and as for Firefox it's 1000% better than IE, heck it has a cat theme! :)

Purrs,
Ramses

Mickey said...

Dragonheart & Merlin,you both look so cute.I love seeing you together.
We use IE and Mom opens your blog,goes to get a coffee and then we read.Sometimes refresh helps.Other than that no problem. We think it has more to do with our computer as it's old and really needs some upgrades,heehee. Might look into firefox though :)

Titus said...

Firefox rules!
You guys look super cool. I love how the sun shines right through your ears. I wish mine were like that.
DH, I know how you feel - EG's always trying to hog Mom's lap, too. Brothers - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.

Princess and Rosemary said...

We like looking att these pictures.

The Meezers said...

we haf heard that some kitties cannot view our bloggie either - maybe it's our new template. strange.

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Those pictures of you two are quite lovely. We had been having problems loading your page but for the last couple days its been loading fine.

Ariel said...

And firefox is free! Do you ever have problems with drop down menus? Our Mac version of Firefox seems to not like them. Like for Friday Ark, we cannot use firefox because the drop down box for type of pet doens't work.

You guys are so cute!

Monty Q. Kat said...

I haven't noticed anything with IE, but let me go chexk with Firefox to see if there's a difference.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

FIREFOX all the way!! hehe we can see the vains in your ears!

Lyra&Caesar said...

Caesar says, I now try to cuddle with mamma when Lyra is taking up all her attention under her chin, but I am too big for the chin.

I like to think everything in the house is mine too and get jealous when Lyra has a toy.

Tybalt said...

You are both ever so handsome, and getting handsomer every day! I'm the baby in the family, so I can sympathize with Merlin . . . everything IS ours, especially the mommy!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Mmmmmm, nice warm sun! I haven't seen much sun here lately : (

Ali & Fiona said...

My, my Merlin you are sure are handsome, Fifi almost fainted.

Of course you are very handsome too Drake.

cyclone cats! said...

we are so jealous of your sunshine! it snowed here this morning and is now gray and overcast.

Ruis said...

Beautiful photos of you guys!!

Merlin, I can see that you are bigger and growing since came. And I biggified the photo to watch your points, unfortunately your eyes were shut otherwise I also could see your beautiful blue eyes. You're a handsome little guy, Merlin!:-)

Oh Dragonheart, that's how kittens are!! They always think everything is theirs alone, I have seen it many times. But when they are getting older they learn and know who is the boss!!

~Ruis

PS -- We are also using Firefox and we also recommend Firefox, or Safari or Opera. Last month Marlene started with a new template too (not ready yet, because of the surgeries now), but it takes twice as long to code everything for viewing in IE.

Stephanie said...

We use firefox too!! It's da best.

Thanks for sharing your photos. We like to see you kitties with no furrs!

Angus said...

Those are great pictures of you two. The sun shining through your ears is very pretty! I'm a Firefox fellow, myself, and have always found it the most stable browser.

The Devil Dog said...

Auntie loves Firefox. Mom uses both. We are in IE now, we think. It is great to see you growing, Merlin. You are very handsome. We are so glad you two get along. As far as Merlin climbing on top of you, Dragonheart, you kjust have to be like Lucky and ignore it. I mean, she doesn't even wake up when I climb on top of her. hee hee

Puss-in-Boots said...

Hi Dragonheart and Merlin. I sympathise with you Dragonheart, because I have to train Mitzi that everything in this place is not hers...some of it's mine! I also have to train her that when I sit on the loo, it doesn't mean she can jump in my lap...honestly, I have no privacy!

Still, she's a lovely little girl and keeps me laughing, and laughter is good.

MoMo said...

You guys must have heard this a thousand times, so one more time won't hurt. You are just sooooooo photogenic. I don't have any trouble loading your page either, I also use Firefox.

I was thinking: Siamese points darken up in winter. Spring may just show up (sooner or later) as Merlin grows and matures. So his points will be going lighter because of that and growing darker because of maturity. A paradox!
