We Got Kittens | The First Week

8 comments

It's the third week of 2018 and I've already completed one of my goals for the year, we got kittens! Simon and I welcomed in 2018 by adding two little fur babies to our family. As I'm writing this post, I currently have a little 10 week old kitten scratching me, biting my MacBook and climbing up my top and eating my hair! two weeks ago we picked up two little kittens, Theo & Lola.
My whole life I've grown up with a house full of animals and since moving in with Simon a year and a half ago, I've been living with no pets in the house! Simon and I would love a dog one day, but for the time being it wouldn't be fair for us to get a dog. Simon loves cats and I've always grown up with cats, so they are the perfect pets for us at the moment. We picked up our two little babies two weeks ago and we're absolutely obsessed with them. Theo is a little boy with blue eyes and white little socks and chest, Lola is our little girl with a pink little nose and ginger face. They're brother and sister and spend their days playing, fighting, eating and napping together. We really wanted to get two together because then they can play together and have company when we're not here. Even when we first picked them up and were in the car home, they were just so chilled out and snuggling up together. At first we thought Theo was the cheeky confident one because the first day we got him, he just loved to climb and explore and little Lola slept all day. In fact Lola is definitely the crazy wild child! Lola spends her day beating up her brother and exploring everything she possibly can. Theo's a little sweetie. He loves to play with his sister but also loves to snuggle up to you. 
The maternal side of me has definitely come out since getting these little babies! I find myself checking if they've had a enough to eat, if they've been to the toilet if they've been playing enough etc constantly. If I'm not at home, I can't help but text Simon to see how they're doing and what they're up to. Getting kittens is definitely an adjustment, we now have two little beings to look after. I feel like they need constant attention. If they're not needing to be fed, they've made a mess in their litter tray, or if they're not constantly attacking you and making sure you have no time for yourself, they're being too quite and you spend half an hour tying to search the house for them! 
I wouldn't say they've turned our lives upside down, but they've definitely shook it up a little bit. As much as they are a bit of work sometimes, they're so worth it. They're the cutest little things and have the best little characters. We love and care for them so much, they've turned us into a little family. 
We have vlogged them a little bit on the first day they came home, so if you'd like to see little Lola & Theo you can over on my YouTube channel. We can't wait to see their characters blossom.
