From the awwww files: brotherly love

8 07 2012

These are the two newest additions to our family—Pixel and Lobo. We adopted them from a cat shelter in late October and they are both about a year old now. Pixel (the striped one) was a runt when we got him—now his nickname is Hoover because he will eat everything in sight if you don’t monitor him. Lobo (Spanish for “wolf”) is 100% lap cat and we’ve learned that he is a Nebulung—a rare breed of domestic cat. I wanted to name him “JPG,” to compliment “Pixel,” but Michael favored “Lobo.” After eight months, our 12-year-old cat, ZenaB, still isn’t happy they’re here, but she has adjusted anyway. Pixel lets her rule the roost (all he cares about is food, really), but Lobo just pushes her buttons every chance he gets. Although they are not from the same litter, Pixel and Lobo are very close—which is a good thing since ZenaB ignores them most of the time! I shot this with an iPhone this evening.
