Retrospective: When We Were Kittens

When we were kittens, we liked to sleep on the bench by the bedroom window:

After waking up, we would wrestle with each other or play with our toys:

Sometimes we climbed up the back of the bureau into a drawer and fell asleep and no one knew where we were until Pat happened to come along and open the drawer:

That's our Mom, telling us to get right down out of there, NOW:

One day Mom told us we were going downstairs for the first time! She told us to line up at the bedroom door:

Mom said, "Nobody's going downstairs until everybody behaves! That means you, Smartie - stop poking at Taffy!"

From the top of the stairs it looked like such a long way down:

But eventually we made it -- all the way into the downstairs family room! Where we huddled together in the corner to decide what to do next. From top to bottom and left to right, we are Tootsie, Cocoa, Smartie, Hershey, and Taffy:

By the way, after leaving us, our Mom proceeded to make quite a good life for herself: she happily shares a beautifully decorated home with four humans, a large dog named Kaiser, and another cat, named Moses, who all adore her. She even has a new name - she now calls herself Lucy:

(You can see where we get our good looks!)

This is how Lucy reacted when Pat visited her and asked if she would like to get together with us for a reunion:

That's ok, Lucy, we understand! We remember how naughty we were as kittens, and we thank you for your patience! Love from - THE GOLDEN JETS

That is sweet! I had a sister named Taffy, but she went to the Rainbow Bridge last year.

They are all absolutely adorable, irresistable. I can see why you have several cats. Can't bear to part with the kitties. Enjoyed the kitten pics.
