Sideshow attraction

I would expect the carnival barker might put it something like this: "Step right up folks and see the the world's only two-headed cat!".

And to think that many would pay the additional $10 for the privilege of viewing this monstrosity. That is, if it was a truly gruesome attraction.

Of course these are our newest family additions, that pair known as Rigby and Linus. And they are cuddling under the bed of Kid2. Sir Rigby seems to be out of sorts due to his time living amongst the plumbing in that space between the walls the other day (see here) and was the more gregarious of the pair at first, but seems to have withdrawn after his bout with the pipe inspection lunacy. Being brothers, they do look comfortable bunched up on the floor. We do know this, they seem to come out at night, because in the morning, all their food is eaten and the litter box has been used. So perhaps they are not as reclusive as they seem. However, being on the floor they are the cutest dust magnets I have ever known...

like I wrote Patti, I hope they come with a 30 day warranty. Now that you wrote they are eating at night, they really have no reason to join you guys in daytime but maybe once they get used to the sounds of your house, the will be less reclusive. I sure hope so.

When we first adopted Marbles, whom we no longer have, she spent the first two weeks hiding under beds and behind couches and such, too, so this may be normal behavior depending on how long the boys were in the shelter before your brought them home.

Give them some more time and I'm sure they'll come round eventually.

Under the bed...over the bed...they are still two cute kitties!
