The little teeny-tiny girl from yesterday was adopted (of course – such cuteness never stays long in the store). Here are the rest of the week’s kittens. Still with the kittens and it’s Thanksgiving.
This little fellow has already been adopted. He was very lively and wanted to get out and go, rather than be held and snuggled.
This beautiful little set of three is now down to two as the one with lots of gold on her face is gone. I love torties so I tend to take a lot of pictures of them…
She was curious.
The others were quiet at first.
Brother had a purr engine but a skeptical attitude.
The little one with the black face also wanted to get down and go, which we could not allow.
These two were much more closely attached, so it’s a good thing the outgoing one is the one adopted first.
UPDATE – ADOPTED YESTERDAY!
Gizmo is back in our store. The poor fellow is clearly sad (he seems to think it’s just not worth the effort to look you in the eye), but not frightened, and he likes nothing more than to have someone sit and pet him and pet him and pet him while he dozes and purrs. He’s all silky, too, someone gave him a really nice grooming. This sweet guy wants nothing more than a quiet warm place to rest and lots of company and attention, and the occasional brushing to keep his long Maine-coon coat free of mats.
Tortellini comes out of her cage, rubs along my legs, then goes and sits on the scratcher exactly as Amelia used to do.
Unlike Amelia, however, Tortellini turns out to love the laser pointer! To see this chubby girl scuttle up and down the room chasing the red dot is a cheerful experience.
Tortellini has a history of kidney stones, and eats a special kidney diet to keep her well. That shouldn’t put anybody off, though, this girl is friendly and fun.
This fellow was being adopted as we left Saturday. He was a big big boy, very calm and placid, and it turned out that he was more than willing to play with crazy Spaz. Too bad they had so little time together. He outweighed Spaz two to one, so they were well matched!
Spaz sized him up.
“Can I? Huh? Huh?”
Note the funny smile.
There was no snarling at all, and only a little tail-fluffing from Christian, but he clearly was having fun as he kept coming back to start things up.
When he took a break, Spaz had trouble letting him go.
And they were off again. It was nice to see this big guy act spunky, and to see Spaz get what he so badly wants.
This young man with orange points and very blue eyes came in with a sibling as well and was left behind. He was very quiet, just wanting to be held, and it’s possible he had a respiratory infection as he occasionally coughed or sneezed. We made him as happy as we could.
Orange ears (tail, too).
Skeptical of the camera.
Doesn’t he look nice on a blue background?
This is not the first Lola we’ve had, but I never can resist singing a song to them… Lola came in with a sister, who was already gone. She was silky and pretty and wanted attention.
In adoption news, Marta got adopted, by a family with two kids and a dog. It’s about time that sweet sweet girl got out of the cage! Also sweet little Sinead found a home.
