I think it's Boo & Peek. Skitter was a possibility, and Pounce was a dark horse. She does like to peek around corners-- she'll sit and watch me when I go somewhere, and she likes to peer over the edge of the cat tree waiting for her brother to go by. Then she pounces on him. My hall closets have curtains rather than doors, and she goes in there then peeks out from under to watch me go by.

I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm impressed by how much trouble they're not. I've never met kittens who didn't chew things up, shred them, steal things and hide them, or otherwise cause all manner of mayhem.

He's becoming very affectionate, and she's slowly becoming less skittish. They both tend to come hang out near my desk when I'm at the computer, and he'll meow at me and demand attention. That's pretty good progress for one month!

It's about time to take them to the vet and get them fixed, though. I should also figure out how old they are, since I have some conflicting information.

FWIW, my first post on Boo & Peek, when they first came out of their "den," and were pretty much fully weaned, as far as I could tell, was on June 29. The kitten book I have says that should happen between 3 and 4 weeks. So I'd peg their birth somewhere between the first and second week of June.

So glad to hear they're making such progress! :-)

Interesting. The vet paperwork you gave me has their birth dates listed as March 09. I can easily imagine that was a screwup on the part of a less-than-brilliant vet, but they're both big enough that I can imagine them being six months old.

As I write this, he's curled up on the top of the cat tree surveying his kingdom, and she's skidding across the floor chasing a stuffed mouse.

At least you're not naming them PEEK and POKE...
