This pretty girl was a long tall kitty! She seemed even longer and taller when compared with little Lila.
She was quite friendly, and at first she was quiet, but it turned out that she really enjoyed playing, and when Lila bounced up to her she responded energetically. They had a good time together.
And then they’re adopted! We had several adoptions last week.
This orange boy, who was very scared when he came, was with us less than a week.
He liked people, so he must have begun to relax and show it.
Pretty Cassie was also adopted.
And adorable little Lila was gone from the store by yesterday evening, so she’s stirring up someone’s house as the snow starts to fall again.
And sweet patient Cookie has gone to foster with a volunteer, and is enjoying relaxing in a house and having windows to look out and people to pet her, after almost a year in cages.
Heads up, here comes a pint-sized tornado!
This little girl was about five months old, and SO happy and energetic. She was a little copy of Serenity, too, so we were predisposed to like her even before she began demonstrating her effervescent personality.
She ran around playing with toys and scooting underneath the cages and trying to check out Abigail (who was not amused).
She also liked to be held, at least to the extent her level of energy would allow. Such a great little cat – she’ll need some maintenance on her long fluffy coat but the only difficulty there will be getting her to sit still for it.
“…she pined in thought,
And with a green and yellow melancholy
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief. Was not this love indeed?”
Shakespeare, Twelfth Night, Act II Scene 4
For some reason when I was getting ready to post this picture of Cookie, I thought of that phrase from Twelfth Night, “patience on a monument.” Every week Cookie comes out of her cage and sits on the box, and every time we walk by her we pet her. We were in the store last Sunday and she was sitting in her cage in just this same pose. I wouldn’t say that she’s necessarily pining, but she is certainly patient! She has lived in cages since the spring and it would be so nice if she could have a home!
This tortie girl came to us before the storm, and so she had to be in the store without much attention for a little while. Apparently the first day she was a major lover, but has settled into a pattern of being an extremely busy player, who angles for human attention but doesn’t always like the hands coming toward her. She is personality-plus, so we hope she finds a home where she can play as much as she wants, and learn to accept petting and love.
