Angelo looks so content, laying in your husband's arms. He's taking full advantage of his home comforts!

Oh, what beautiful kittens! Things will certainly liven up when they come home! Elsa does appear to be the "sparky" outgoing one. Never a dull moment with her around! Charles looks the far more relaxed type, with his sleepy-looking eyes.

I noted your reference to the Maine Coon cat above. I may be wrong, but I think our son's cat may have some Maine Coon blood in him. When I looked at some pictures of this breed, there are many similarities. He's gorgeous!

Your garden looks spectacular with all those bright autumn colours. Even the rock is getting into the act with its reddish colours!

How lovely and peaceful it looks in that park. Rivendell indeed!

Ah, part Maine Coon? He *must* be beautiful! They are absolutely gorgeous. I was telling Pearl how wowed I was when I met some strolling around a cat show. The showstopper was a male, completely laid back, who looked the size of an ocelot, but with long hair making him look even bigger. I think the breeder said he was over twenty pounds. Under the pile of gorgeous hair he wasn't a bit fat. That's just how long he was. Perhaps they were cats of Numenor, where the people were extra tall, too? *g*

I'm pleased as punch you think the kittens are beautiful. Even my husband thinks Elsa looks like a bat. I think her face is as pretty as a fairy's! The breeder in Wisconsin thought the breeder who actually owns Elsa (it was her friend in Illinois that owned the female that died in childbirth) is silly not to keep Elsa to breed, because she's such a great-looking cat, especially in the face.

But what I'm looking forward to is her behaviour. Hopefully she won't be a homewrecker, but she does have a look in her eye that say Trouble, in the mischievous sense. She's got a lot of sparkle. Charles actually had a cold when we were visiting, which made him squint a little, his eyes irritated and a bit runny. But he's fine now. They are still going through their childhood illnesses, you see, or so the breeder said. The breeder is very critical about over-vaccinating cats (or that's what she thinks), and the excessive use of antibiotics, which she thinks ruins a kitten's resistance in the long run.

Yes, it is very Rivendell-like down there. It was even more so the week after I took those pictures in the park, but I forgot to bring my camera. The days that followed were gloomy and overcast, which didn't make for good photos either. Now the leaves are almost all gone. The tree tops are completely bare.
