After unsuccessful attempt to find kittens of breed «Russian blue cat» when instead of pretty cats we came across professional swindlers from Africa which entice money at trustful fans of animals, I decided to narrow the area of search and to be limited to the city of Tucson where I live. Purchase of domestic pets in the USA. How we found our new kittens?

In each region there is a local site Craigslist where any wishing can lay out information and photos of that it exposes on sale. On this site there is a special page where animals are on sale. There I also went on searches.

The most part of offers was made by sale of dogs, announcements of sale of adult cats and cats came across, is more rare than kittens. In the same place it is possible to find announcements of sale of parrots, snakes, boas, various reptiles, dwarfish pigs etc. More shortly, want to have houses a zoo – can get any exotic animal, without leaving the apartment.

I began to come on this page daily. And here day when I casually found the photo of two charming kids which the hostess looked for the good new house in the Internet came. To kittens there were only 5 weeks, they still sucked a cat. To separate them it was possible, only when to them there will be 8 weeks. I wrote to the hostess the letter that we are ready to take away this couple when to them there will be 8 weeks.

It is necessary to tell that communication between the seller and the potential buyer goes through e-mail of a site which sends messages there and back. It is made with a view of safety. If someone notices something suspicious at the selling or buying party, it is necessary to report about it site administrations, and the person will be banned.

However we will return to photos of small kittens. They looked as a hybrid of Russian blue cats with someone else. On the sun their sherstka was blue, but a white breast and pads gave out that in breed затесался the newcomer. Kittens were similar at each other, as Liu’s brothers from the Chinese fairy tales.

Within the next three weeks we remained on communication with Rebecca – the mistress of these kids. It sent us photos of growing-up kittens. At last there came day when we could take away them. We agreed that her husband will grasp cats to itself for work in shop where he worked, and we will approach and we will take away kittens as it is closer, than to go to them home.

We found shop quickly, received the kittens and to the eyes did not believe – as we will distinguish them: identical coloring, identical muzzles … We planted them in carrying and carried to the new house. They transferred hour travel well. When I opened a carrying door in the house, they long and watchfully looked back, and then were amicably appropriated for a sofa where overslept till next day.

Hunger – not the aunt, in 18 hours of a dream they crept out from under a sofa and began to look back watchfully. I offered them tasty food for kittens, they quickly started to eat. Full kittens began to sniff and solve me, whether to accept me in their cat’s society. In their decision moved a ball with a hand bell. They fast began to play with it and with each other. Ice was broken, and the friendship was adjusted very quickly.

That me shook most of all in our new members of the family is their mind. They very quickly found a tray. Kittens – very clean also watch the appearance. They quickly thought, where there is their dining room and how to remind that they hungry. Now they have a five-single food.

Kittens are very amicable, play with each other and different toys much. Also that is absolutely incomprehensible: as quickly they learned to get to the very top of a cat’s tree! I remember that Sonia and Dachshunds were trained in this art not less than a month. Kittens arrange vertical races on a tree and fights above.

For the second or third day the husband attended to that it is necessary to give names to new residents. One we called Smoki (Smokey), the second – Shedou (Shadow), or simply Smok and Shed. Smok has a pretty white speck on a nose, and Shed without it. However when they separately to distinguish them it is quite difficult.

Relationship of kittens with our cat Sonia meanwhile develops not so well. When they too close approach to Sonia, it starts to hiss on them, or goes to other room. But kittens are not afraid of it and I hope that over time contact will be established. With Sonia I carry out every day explanatory work that it is necessary to be on friendly terms with small pussycats.

Kittens at us live only ten days, but they quite accustomed with the new house and please us with the cheerfulness and activity.
