Meet Simon, one of our two new kitty overlords.

Two Maine Coon boys, Simon and Henry. Henry only comes out when it is quiet so I'll try for a pic of him later. He's much like Simon, but bigger and darker. Both boys were my Mom's. I had also sworn off cats forever, so much for that. These boys are so sweet.

oh, and there's no stuffing in my chair cushion, because Simon peed in my chair the first night. They both have used the box since. I just think they were scared from the move.

not the best pic of Henry but it will do. They've come a long way in just a couple of days. They even get along with the dog.

Riley is the big one at 23 pounds. He is very sociable. Jasper is the skittish one and only weighs 15 pounds.

I love their paws! They are huge! Like man paws. And the tufts of hair in their ears like a lynx. They are really great cats. Congrats!

Black cat shown here with best buddy Carly (who has since passed on). I adopted Carly from the Denver Dumb Friends League and when Simon was a wee kitten, could be held in the palm of my hand, not anymore.
