CAT OF THE WEEK

Zinc and Mink
updated: Dec 21, 2013, 9:00 AM

Zinc and Mink were so tiny 2 ½ years ago when they joined our household from ResQCats!

Three months after that, we think, They'd grown to fill the bathroom sink.

Even though they are brothers, they have very different personalities. Black Mink is very sweet and loves to be petted. He is a lap junkie, especially at the breakfast table. Gray Zinc is a troublemaker who insists that everyone must wake up at 4 a.m. Baskets, boxes, and window- envelopes are likely to get shredded if he is in the room.

Now they weigh more than 14 pounds each. After a short introductory period, they got along famously with former Cat of the Week Nemo, who was no longer such a scaredy-cat when he sadly left us at age 15 a few weeks ago. Our other former COTW 8-year-old Lucha was not so pleased. He used to be the bully but now he's outnumbered. In this photo Mink, Zinc, and the late Nemo (center back) were plotting their next move against an unsuspecting Lucha (in the basket).

Most common words spoken around our house:
“Don’t chew on that!”
“Get down from there!”
“Leave him alone!”
And of course, the all-purpose “Stop that!”
Aren’t cats fun?
