Health policy writing will be light today as I owe my co-authors a revised draft and so far it is not making enough sense to me to share.
However, I would like to introduce you to Goat and Buttercup. We adopted these two, a brother/sister pair of eight month olds, yesterday. They spent most of the afternoon under the couch but by evening Goat had explored the entire living room and most of the kitchen while Buttercup explored as she wished.
Here is Goat:
And here is Buttercup:
You’ve been holding out on us, Mayhew.
more Goat and Buttercup :)
Looks like a faster shutter speed is going to be S.O.P. for Goat.
Enjoy your life of cat slavedom Mayhew.
Well, I’m happy you keep us updated on the really important stuff! :)
Nice to see B&G quickly acclimated to their new home and were able to leave the safety of the Undercouch Cave to go exploring. In the first photo, what is that blur by Goat’s head?
Why one name in all caps?

@NotMax: GOAT is an acronym.
Hello GOAT and Buttercup. Merlin sends Brrrrrp?
@Gin & Tonic, Duke of Tanqueray
Okay, I’ll bite. For what?
@NotMax: my 7 year old named GOAT and insisted the name should be all capital letters as that is cooler
@rikyrah: 16 hours before first pictures
Congratulations! Expecting many updates.
A fine respite. Beautiful new family members. Give them a skritch for me.

Sweet !! Lurve them kitties…
I’m sorry, GOAT is what kind of animal? As near as I can make out from the photo, a guinea pig? ;^)
My late Madeline shared much of the black and white markings I see on Buttercup. More pix of them both would be enjoyed.

Seriously Goat and Buttercup? What kind of names are those? All the other cats in the neighborhood are going to.make fun of them. Also your photography skills are a step up from Cole’s. Take that however you want to.

@Mai naem mobile: oh, i forgot to tell you to that the cats are adorable.
Cool! Kitties! Your Buttercup looks like my new shorthaired tuxedo, Curren he is about 6 months and full of beans, his new brother Hugh is 7 months and a HUGE floofy white and gray spotted love muffin, we call him stoner cat because he is so chill.
My dog may forgive me…someday!
