Groovy Kitty Cats
This… is Smeagol.
He is one of sister Barb’s two new kittens.
The other guy is Deagol.
Smeagol and Deagol are also Hobbits in Lord of the Rings, and as soon as Smeagol stared back at me here, through my viewfinder, I totally understood why she named them as she did.
My first impression was that kitty Smeagol has a face only a mother could love, and I actually DID have my fingers tightly crossed behind my back as I told Barb how “CUTE the little tyke is :-)))))”…
But incredibly, the more I watched him play with his little brother, the more his little face and big ears and krinkly whiskers grew on me. And at this point I need to confess they both totally melted me and I’m now totally compelled to post this picture so you can all go “Awwwwww, he’s such a CUTE little tyke…” (with yer fingers crossed firmly behind yer backs :-)
Smeagol and Deagol (yeah, I think that’s how you spell them) are part Siamese and part Sphinx… but Smeagol here got the dominant Sphinx gene bigtime. Almost no fur, but the fur he does have is soft and like velvet to the touch. And the ginger spots and stripes are cool beyond belief, and he’s totally hyper nutz. Watching him play and do his wacko act is pure class entertainment and I for one am gonna have an absolute blast watching these two grow up.
Might even get a few more pics…
Big congrats Barb, they’re gorgeous!!
