our new cats, Felix and Max

When they were very young, they would meow if they really wanted a spider or something we were eating (such as chocolate milk or red licorice) but mostly communicated by trilling. They trill less now.

These were taken in late December 2004.

These were taken in February 2004.

These were taken in November 2003.

These were taken in mid-November 2002. The cats were 8 months old, supposedly fully grown. Max is now plush with a plume of a tail. Felix is smaller but believes he's the dominant cat and is more of a lap cat.

These were taken in late October 2002.

These were taken in early October 2002. The cats are starting to look like adults.

These were taken in late August 2002. The cats are bigger than they look in the pictures. We've also clipped Max's collar so it doesn't stick way out now.

These were taken in mid-June 2002.

These were taken right after we got them in mid-May 2002, at age 2 months, when they weighed 2 pounds each. They have grown rapidly since these pictures.
