the truth about cats and dogs

We recently had, as Kate Graham aptly put it, twins. An eight week old chocolate lab named Solomon:

and an eight week old tabby named Oberon:

Yes, that means that one is the king of wisdom and the other is the king of shadows and fairies. On purpose.

They're both pretty much the cutest and best behaved pets in the world (considering their eight week long state of existence) and they provide much more entertainment than cable. I've noticed certain similarities between them and their caregivers, namely, Andrew and me.
  1. They both can fall asleep in a room filled with people. Like me. (although Oberon seems to wake up easily and be fully alert, like Andrew, and Solomon takes a while to operate basic movements once "awake", like me)
  2. They act cranky if they're hungry. Like Andrew.
  3. Oberon is a fan of provoking Solomon and gleefully staying out of reach. Like me.
  4. They have green eyes. Like Andrew.
  5. They want to be in the middle of the action. Like both of us.

Please, oh please tell me that one or both of them was adopted from an animal shelter. Seriously.
