5 February 1994: pair-bond
19 March 2001: marry
15 October 2004: start of open-ended cohabitation experiment

Here they are.
This is the boy-kitten exploring the waste-paper basket for the first time.
This is the girl-kitten figuring out how the Venetian blind works.
I was woken up just before six this morning by the noise of small furry animals hurtling around the house very fast. They seem to have made themselves quite comfortable already, and are now hiding under a large sheet, curled up next to one another on the landing.
Names to follow. And, no doubt, more photos.
