Kitten update

Here's a recent photo of our 5-month-old kittens, Gary and Sylvester.  Sorry for the low quality here from my iPhone, probably the lighting's fault as well as mine.  That of course is a string hanging over the edge that they like to swat and pull at - it isn't Gary's tail.

They can be hard to photograph well, despite their being almost ridiculously adorable, because, when they're not sleeping, it's a bit like trying to photograph a whirlwind.  Like the drummer in Spinal Tap, they believe in having a good time ALL THE TIME.  And like the Steve Martin character's former girlfriend in Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, the word "No" isn't in their vocabulary.

While caught in a subway delay the other day, I was trying to think of what would be the LEAST apt or applicable adjectives that one could possibly come up with to describe these little fellas. The best (i.e., worst) descriptors that occurred to me included: corrupt, jaded, cynical, languid,and blas√©.  Further suggestions welcome.
