My famous singing duo

Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn

These two baby kitties, about eight weeks old, were given to us several weeks ago by daughter alipurr. They are blue-eyed Dolly Parton and green-eyed Loretta Lynn*.

*The sister kitties are so-named because while bringing them home in our cat carrier, they howled and sang to us for the entire 70 miles we were in the car.

When I came into the kitchen a little while ago, I found them hugging, as only sisters can, in this small basket while getting ready to take a mid-morning snooze. Aren't they cute?

In case you are wondering who they resemble, and for those not familiar with these two famous Country and Western singers, here are their namesakes, the real Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn:

Dolly Parton

Loretta Lynn

Thank you, alipurr, for letting us adopt these babies from your latest litter of kittens (two down and several more to go). We have derived a great deal of pleasure from Dolly and Loretta and love to watch their antics as they fight and play around the house. Our other cats are finally getting used to having the newcomers here and have mostly stopped hissing at them.

As my sister, mrsgreenthumb, always says, are we absolutely nuts for having so many animals? I really needed these two extra kitties like two extra holes in my head. But, we really couldn't resist taking them and we are glad we did.

Cuties, just plain white cuties! I wish could reach out and pet them! But that would be impossible even if I was there (Ahcooo!)

What cuties, they look nearly identical. Funny I could have named Vincent after a singer too as he howled at the top of his lungs for about 70 miles also. One would have thought he was being tortured!
(He was already named in his papers!)

One with blue eyes and one with green eyes. How pretty!

We got Stripey about the time you got those kittens, and he's not nearly as big. Hmmm...

We're fools for baby animals, grown animals and senior animals. Let's face it, we cannot resist nurturing something. Now that our kids are grown, it's baby animals and baby grandchildren. How sterile our lives would be without some furry critter wanting some love from us. They are proven stress relievers too. All the more reason to have pets. Dolly and Loretta are adorable, that is a wonderful picture. NO more kitties, you'll never be able to take any more vacations.

Oh yes, definitely irresistable! They're so adorable cuddled together in the basket. Love the picture!
I can understand completely why you brought them home :)
