Copy of letter I wrote to go with the kittens

Inky and Pinky

Turblow their mother came to live with me in February already looking huge but the kittens did not arrive until Saturday 29th March  at 11am Inky was born first and Pinky’s sack was attached to Inky’s they have had an amazing bond even on day one. There was a third kitten Parlee Vue who sadly did not make it.
Why the names? I named them before they were born and wanted names that would work for boys or girls. While Turblow was pregnant we thought she might have a big litter as she was so big she we had Inky, Pinky, Parlee Vue  (could have been two kittens) Hava and Banana! As it was Inky the first born looked like he had been jumping in ink with his white paws and black splashes. Pinky when born had a little pink mouth so the names worked well.
When born Inky weighed 170grms and Pinky 150grms (the average weight of a new born kitten is 100grms so big boys from day one.
The boys have been on solid food Inky almost three weeks and Pinky just over a week. Whiskas and Felix kitten and any make of dry food.
They do know the word NO! but like all youngsters pick and chose when to take any notice.
Both are litter box trained (I use newspaper and Catsan)
Favourite toys a tunnel, scratching post (yes, they know to use a post NOT the wallpaper) fur covered mouse, balls,  bird on a stick thing and the do love to climb.
They like to sleep of the floor.
Inky loves to sleep on your lap Pinky is more of a next to you cat but that might be more to do with Inky stopping Pinky from getting on?
They are very good sweet natured people pussy’s.
I have four other cats and although they have seen the other cats they have not mixed with them as Turblow would not allow it.
If you want to read more (including pictures and video) They had a BLOG

I’m sure these guys will give you a life of love and laughs

Kittens are now Seven Weeks Old

Now is the time I need to start looking at my little ones moving on. I knew it was going to be hard and I'm not disappointing myself! Just the thought of it makes me want to cry.But I do still have a couple more weeks I think that is just going to make it harder though? I've never given anything away not even my dolls (Although my dad DID give all my dolls away to this horrid girl who lived next door! OK, I was seventeen and no longer played with them but they were not his to give away and .... well, you get the idea! LOL) 
This week Turblow and the kittens Thursday 15th visited the vet for their check up and first worming. They are all fit and healthy, Inky and Pinky are both boys! So there you have it BOYS! Lovely, handsome, funny, feisty, nutty, cuddly boys.
Who could not want my boys? They will make you laugh (lots) give you love and cuddles and make WONDERFUL companions. 
Not my place to say but I feel they should stay together as they are so close! After all two kittens are so much more fun than one. They are fully litter trained and (most of the time) will stop when told NO!
They are happy to be picked up and love a nice cuddle (and a computer) I guarantee you will never have any problems with rodents as Turblow is a wonderful mouser I've watched her 'kill' many a toy mouse she is training her boys well.
Turblow is a clever cat and the kittens are pretty smart I'm sure you will be able to teach them tricks if you so desire.
Cats are either bush or tree dwellers... these are tree! So will need a nice perch or six!  I'm teaching them to use the scratching post and not my carpet or furniture, they are pretty good at this. 
So what more can I say? If your interested in my boys you will need to be checked out by Scratching Posts Cat Rescue
