Halloween's Eve- Terrifying Tuesday!

Today we participated in our first Howl-o-ween tradition. I guess howl-o-ween is supposed to be for dogs, but we are meezers. We shall do as we please! Today a foreign object invaded our kitchen, so I, Pollux the curious, investigated.

Castor joined me for a closer look.

Our human sibling wanted Pollux to take a much closer look than either of us wanted!

Mommy explained that the seeds needed to be removed, so Pollux decided to face the problem head on!

Pollux took the lead in carving the pumpkin,

while Castor acted in a supervisory capacity.

All in all, I think we did an excellent job with our first pumpkin carving!

Though in retrospect, our pumpkin hardly fits the breed standard for meezers. The ears are not nearly fruit batty enough, and the face is hardly a wedge. We shall improve our skills for next year and make a much more meezerly kitty-o-latern!

Happy Halloween from Castor and Pollux,
the Meezer Brothers!

Sleepy Sunday

We brothers are sleepy today.But now we can finally refer to ourselves as individuals with our NEW NAMES!!!!!

When mommy first knew she was getting us, she wanted to name us for stars, after all, we are Stellarpaw babies! But daddy didn't like the names mommy selected. He wanted to name us for mythological twins or brothers. A compromise was made. We are named for the Gemini twins (something Gemini will appreciate!). We are Stellarpaw's Castor and Stellarpaw's Pollux. Castor means "he who excels" and that was perfect for the brother who is very outgoing and aggressive. Pollux means "very sweet." And that suited the other of us who is more cuddly perfectly.

Here's another tidbit about the Gemini twins:In classical Greece the stars were named Castor and Pollux, legendary twins born of immortal Zeus and the mortal Leda, wife of the king of Sparta. Thus, Pollux was immortal and Castor mortal. They were brothers of beautiful Helen of Troy, for whom the Trojan War was fought. The Twins were known as well educated, strong and daring, yet gentle lads, who became healers, physicians and protectors of humankind. They were among Jason's crew of argonauts in quest of the Golden Fleece. On that voyage, a fierce storm threatened the mission, but abated as a pair of stars appeared over the heads of Castor and Pollux. Since that time seamen have called upon the brothers for protection from peril, and the erie lightning phenomenon, sometimes called St. Elmo's Fire, has been thought of as the spirits of the twins playing in the sails, a good omen for sailors. Castor, a horseman, and Pollux, a boxer, fell in love with beautiful sisters who were already betrothed to suitors. The Twins challenged and slew their rivals, but Castor was mortally wounded. Overcome with grief, the immortal Pollux would have committed suicide in order to be with his brother, but this was impossible. In the end, Zeus placed both their immortal souls together in the sky as symbols of brotherly love, the precept they had so gallantly demonstrated throughout their lives on earth.
Romans called the stars the "Twin Brethren" and associated them with the principle of brotherhood considered to lie at the foundation of their empire. In Egypt they became Horus the Elder and Horus the Younger. In Babylon they were the "Great Twins," and they were viewed as twins in Arabia as well. In China they were Yin and Yang, representing eternal dualism, the two halves of a circle, and contrasting principles of existence.

Fierce Friday

We brothers are fierce today! Fiercly chasing all the furry mices!

We still don't have names, but our new Daddy came home today and he's pondering the issue. Here we are slightly less fierce cuddling on our new daddy's lap. He loved us from the start! He had no clue we were coming! The little human announced our presence as soon as Daddy came in, but he had no clue we were as special as we are until he met us! Daddy is very, very happy to have us, but we all knew he would be!

Stay posted, soon we share with you our new names!

Our First Blog

This is our very first blog from our forever home! Life has been exciting and new. We left our first family Monday night and stayed in a hotel! It was a little scary so we hid behind hte bed a while. Then we dicided new humans were warm and cozy too and slept on them all night. We missed our mama cat Stella so we meezed most of the night and kept the new humans up most of the night!
The next day we traveled 12 hours in a car across four states! Can you believe how well traveled we are for 12 weeks old! We offered to drive some, but our new Meezer Mommy said we were too young. Not Hot!
Our new house is lots of fun. There are carpetted stairs purfect for playing and clawing on, there are lots of fuzzy mices and other cool toys. The little human is a bit louder and runs a lot, but we've discovered she's really nice to snuggle with, especially at night when we read stories, and in the morning watching a few cartoons.
Our new Meezer Daddy doesn't know we are here yet, but we are really looking forward to surprising him tomorrow! We just know he'll love us. After all, we are Siamese, so what's not to love!
Bye for now! We will post often to keep in touch with our old friends and family!
