Two Frootbats on Friday

Dragonheart and Merlin

Dragonheart: As you can see from these photos, Merlin is getting too big for both of us to fit in the sleeping bag at once. As the older sibling, I get first bids on curling up inside the sleeping bag. We do have two sleeping bags, but we like being together.

Some of you have asked if Merlin will be larger than I am. It's hard to say. I was bigger than my littermate and brother as a kitten, so they thought I was going to be a large Sphynx, like my grandfather (15 lbs), but I never grew that big, and I'm only 3.65 kg (8 lbs). Merlin is currently about 6 lbs. He's still smaller than me, but he's continuing to grow.

Merlin: As you can see, I continue to grow like a weed! Some of you have commented that it looks like my body type is different from Dragonheart's. Yep, it is! My humans say I'm a little more "stocky" - I have a broader chest, and my legs are set further apart than Dragonheart's. The shape of my head and face are a little different too. Mine are a little more "Meezer-like." We are both frootbats, though, just like all Sphynx should be!

I think no matter who is bigger, you are always love each other:)
I am also glad to see Merlin growing so faster, means he is so beloved~! That is very sweet prove~!!

Daisy said...

I'll bet Merlin ends up being bigger! How fun to watch and see what happens. It looks like you need another sleeping bag.

I've been doing a lot of finking today, mostly about how beastly My Marie's Mom's Boss is for making her work so many hours, but also that Merlin will be close to 10lbs when full grown at the rate he's growing! Watch out Dragonheart or you'll be the little brother soon! ;)

You guys are such good Snuggle buddies!

Beethoven said...

WOW! Merlin, if you're growing up to be larger than Dragonheart, does that mean I can grow up to be LARGER than the Giant Kitty? He's 8kg while I'm not yet 1kg now though. How long do you think it's going to take?

Mickey said...

You two need a 'double' sleeping bag :) It's fun watching the two of you grow and play. You are cute Frootbats.

Two handsome frooty peas in a pod! What an adorable shot!

You guys are sweet, as usual. You will need a custom made snuggle bag soon.

I think you need a "double bed" sleeping bag to stay together ! I am really amazed that Dragonheart is so small, he looks big on the pictures but now with Merlin it is true he looks smaller.
Arthur still has troubles to take a little nap in the new tent ! He put some weight on during winter, 7 kgs now !

DEBRA said...

Well I say you both are very handsome boys!

Awww! Two froot bats are twice as nice!

Princess said...

You two make a nice team.
Caesar used to rest his head on my back while we napped. It used to keep me warm. Now mom puts a blanket on me.
It is nice to be together. I am so happy to see you two are such good friends

You guys are so cute snuggling like that. Its amazing how cats from different breeders can have such different attributes, I find it very interesting! I didn't realize Drake was only 8 lbs, even little Latte weighs a half a pound more than him.

Does Merlin have his own snuggle pouch or does he just like being with you?

TT said...

Mommy saids if you guys had furs, the 3 of us would be alike! Cuddling with the beans is always my favorites thing to do too. It is great that you both get along so well.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think this means you need a larger sleeping bag, don't you?

Irishcoda said...

Wow, Merlin, you really are growing so fast!

And ... "Frootbat"? I giggle every time I see that, just one of those fun sounding words, I guess :D

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Your mom needs to find something you both can cuddle up together in to resolve the sleeping bag dilemma!

Junior said...

I think your beans had better buy a bigger sleeping bag!

I am thinking Merlin is going to be bigger than you Dragonheart!

No beating up on your brother if you are bigger than him, Merlin!

PB & J said...

You're both so handsome it doesn't matter who is bigger

oh sure Jake say that, you're the biggest!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

You're going to have to get bigger sleeping bag! Maybe they make two kitty size?

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Wow! Merlin you are growing very, very fast! It was only a couple of weeks ago when you both fit in that sleeping bag : )

Tara said...

What a wonderful frootbat picture! Kavan is a lot stockier than me as well, but that would be expected, as I'm a ladycat.

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Maybe ya could put the 2 sleepin bags angled together so ya are both together but got space...

Rascal said...

Looks like you two are solid brothers. I'm glad being a two Cat family has worked out so well for you.

Eric and Flynn said...

You are growing very fast Merlin. Maybe you need a dawg sized sleeping bag. We have given you both an award.

The Meezers said...

You two are fabyoolus frootbats, and so, so handsum! It'll be fun to see if Merlin gets biggur than you, Dragonheart! And it's so sweet to see what superduper friends the two of you are!

Happy Frootbat Friday, you two Fabulous Frootbat Fellows! You two always make me *smile*.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

The Devil Dog said...

You two are so cute together. You should get a bigger sleeping bag, big enough for the two of you.

Catzee said...

Yeah, if Merlin gets any bigger yu'll just have to squish yurselves in there.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yoo guys need a bigger sleeping bag!

Lux said...

You're both cute, that's for sure! Merlin, you do seem to be growing very fast!

How fun. Our two tiniest kittens ended up being HUGE. They overtook our large tabby male long ago, but they are clearly still on the bottom of the totem pole. The old ladies (tiny little girls) are clearly the bosses around our house.

byrningbunny said...

Wooden floors are so much fun to go skidding and sliding on too!

Sunny's Mommy said...

They should make a family size sleeping bag!

Jewelgirl said...

It is so sweet when cat
siblings are great buddies.
They look so comfy together!

Hot(M)BC said...

Time to make the humans get you a new sleeping bag.

Fanks for joining the Carnival of the Cats this week!
Purrrrrrs,
Mini and the rest of the Hotties
