Your babies are stunning
Thank you, Sarah! We have both admired your charming babies and find them all to be so beautiful. You are so lucky to have so many living with you. Ann and Jim, our people-mom and people-dad, say that they love us to pieces but they don't think they could manage any more Vans in their little beach house.
While we are very modest, as you might guess
, your kind comments inflated our egos to the point that we decided to put on a couple of slide shows for you and your babes this morning, which you can see by clicking on our names in our siggy, which we just modified.
By the way, we share a great deal with your part of the world. Our cat-dad's name is Lord-of-the-Rings, after the exciting book and the movie made down under, not all that far from your home. All of his kittens were named after characters in the adventure.
Samwise, of course, was the little hobbit who protected Frodo during all his adventures. Here
is a cute photo of Samwise as he succumbed to the magic of The Ring, which you may recall if you saw the movie. Of course he overcame the temptation and went on to save little Frodo's life more than once. This tired him out so badly that he is now napping in the bathtub, his favorite nap-spot.
Molly's real name is Galadriel, which Ann found to be a mouthful when she had to be scolded, so her "house-name" became Molly, after "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," Ann and Jim's last name being "Brown." As I am sure you know, in the movie the lovely Elf Queen Galadriel was played by Cate Blanchett, an Aussie like yourself. Ann says that Molly is as pretty as Cate, but Jim, for some reason, is not really that sure.
So, enjoy our slide show. We made it just for you, Sarah, and your charming fur-babies.
All our love from Molly and Samwise,
