surprise - there's a guy in my life...

...and his name is Onyx! :-o

Last Wednesday my parents' neighbor came by to see the kittens, and she has experience with puppies & kittens and how difficult it can be to tell the difference when they're young...lo & behold Onyx had little extra "parts" appearing that were not there when I took him home the week earlier! He was as smooth underneath as Ebony back then! Well, there's a surprise! Onyx still works as a boy name at least, but I feel bad about calling him "little girl" for a whole week, plus the rhinestone collar he's wearing. He's growing faster than Ebony and he was larger in the first place, but that also explains the size difference and his more rowdy tendencies, including climbing straight up the flagstone gossamer walls Monday night! He is still the Purr Machine you can hear across the room, and he's still more cuddly than Ebony, even though Ebony has her very sweet moments, often concerning licking my hair or staring intently into my eyes, and usually follows suit with the cuddling once Onyx settles in.

New photos are here! If I ever get the chance to edit, I've taken about 2 hours of funny video per my mom's request to save their kittenhood for posterity, so I might post those on YouTube later.

P.S. Tivo status is that everything is working now with the replacement unit except it can't negotiate the phone call regardless of any forum post ideas I have tried. Next step I guess is to see if I can use the ethernet cable and make the daily schedule call via my home network...which would require running a cable from my living room to my office which is no small hassle right now. I think I'll be thankful the writers strike is taking new shows off the air for awhile! heh...
