Two kittehs share tails about their humans, Thu and Troy

It’s a boy!

Sorry for not posting anything yet, it’s really hard to get in a kitty nap these days let alone get on the computer. The big news is, the new baby boy, Jet Kal-El Koelling was born on May 6, 2012!! Everyone is back at home, and our humans Thu and Troy are incredibly happy. We are happy too, but happier in another room when he cries 🙂

Here’s my two brothers, one old, one very new!

Darcy Meeting Jet Koelling, May 8, 2012

Stroller studies

Our humans can be just as sneaky as cats. We over hear them talking about baby gear they saw other human parents use while outside. This is especially true about strollers, something we cats don’t understand. If the kitten can’t walk when it’s born, it sleeps or eats until it has the strength to walk. But apparently that’s not true of human babies who get carted around for years until they can stand.

The main criterion seems to be Troy’s height. At 6’4″ tall, he’s got those long legs and goofy big feet (which are hilarious to run between, making him worry he’ll step on us.) If a stroller has an axel or any bars near the ground he is certain to kick it while pushing it.

The difference between Troy and Thu’s heights mean the handles of the stroller need to be adjustable. They are also keen to find a stroller with one-handed push-ability and a brake mechanism that can be operated while sandals are worn, since the tiny human will be born in May.

Finally, neither Troy nor Thu have a good idea about what the size of the stroller should be. Today’s strollers are built like today’s cars, full of padding and reenforced bars which may be heavy to carry up stairs to our apartment. It seems that one can no longer get an umbrella stroller which actually looks like the size of an umbrella when folded.

We kittehs don’t know about these things, but are willing to pass along recommendations if any of our readers have used a stroller that accomplishes these requirements. Experienced parents may also wish to suggest other factors to consider when choosing a stroller.

New Baby

We’ve discovered that Troy and Thu are indeed developing a tiny human and it will be arriving in the middle of May. They refer to it by the code name “Project Ewok” and are keeping the gender a tight secret. Everyone is healthy and we are excited for when he or she arrives!

Nice find, Darcy!

Nice find Darcy! I bet it’s a tiny hoomin, which will grow into another food giver. Sometimes my bowl gets more than half empty before Thu feeds me, even when I helpfully meow to remind her. We should dig deeper to find out when this new family member will join us and whether it will be in time for dinner.

Thanksgiving dinner

Whilst enjoying a fine dinner of giblets, I overheard the humans talk about our house getting more crowded. Thu even mentioned getting us new clothing, sporting the mark, “Big Brother” which I think would be absolutely fabulous. Having a new cat around would also be neat, but not so neat as new clothes. I just hope it’s not two new kitties, or Thu and Troy will officially be crazy cat people.

Laundered secrets

This kitty is ready for action. I put on my darkest black fur for some sleuthing. But first a short nap in the laundry. I lost myself in the bliss of clean clothes when I was discovered (wearing a human sock. Awkward paws!) Anyway, there were no secrets belonging to Thu or Troy in the laundry, just some girl named Victoria.
