Cats: Castor and Pollux

We have five cats. The two oldest are named Castor and Pollux. Though they have the same names as the sons of Zeus, our cats were not named after these sons directly. The two "buddies", as we like to call them, were named after two of the UNIX servers at Bucknell University, which were in turn named after the sons of Zeus. Castor and Pollux were born in a litter of three. They have a sister, Jessie, who is still in the same household as the mother. They were born on 07 AUG 2004. The order of the births was as follows: Castor, Pollux, and finally Jessie. Our cats are American short-haired tabby cats.

The other three cats are: Huey, Dewey, and Louie. They are from a litter of strays that numbered from 10 to 12. Their birthdate is estimated to be SEP 2006. At first the Castor and Pollux did not like the new buddies very much - constantly hissing and fighting. Now they only growl and run away. We do find them sleeping together from time to time, so they must get along at least a little bit!
