SQUEEEEE!!! Its a happy day!!


Since everyone here was so lovely and kind when I lost 2 of my cats about a month ago, I wanted to share the good news...

Today I got the approval from the adoption group, and 2 new kittens will be joining my household next saturday.  One is an 8 1/2 week old male, all black with a tiny bit of white on his chest.  The other is a 7 week old male, all grey, except for a white patch on his tummy, and a white tip on his tail.  They've been raised together since the grey one was found at 2 weeks, and adopted by the momma cat of the black one.  And now they get to stay together.  I definitely wanted to adopt 2 kittens at once to take it easy on my 13 year old persian, Duncan.  Duncan is a total sweetheart, but he is slowing down a bit as he gets older, and 2 kittens jumping on each other, as opposed to 1 kitten jumping all over him, should work out better.  I hope. :)

My application got approved in ONE DAY!!  That almost never happens.  I figure it had something to do with our veterinary references.  The hospital that we were going to for our cat Boo, who suffered from asthma, was probably all to happy to tell them that we all but financed a new wing, LOL 

As soon as they're home, and I'm able to take pictures, I'll be sure to post them.

KITTENS! HAPPY DAY!

Wow, you guys have application processes for cats? I had to meet the foster home for Jarvis, but I walked out with him after roughly an hour.

It depends on where you adopt from. I adopted through my local Petsmart, and they have rescue groups that have cats for adoption there. You do need to fill out an application, with references, and then hope you get picked. I love the fact that they are so careful. Happily, I apparently made a very good first impression, and the fact that I was willing to take both worked heavily in my favor.

It's great that they take that step. I know places here do that for dogs, but I don't think they normally do for cats. Maybe I got a by because they know my mom and she'd adopted three cats from them previously.

I eagerly await pictures. Not as much as I suspect you await the boys themselves, though. :)

Welcome Home Kitties!
This was the closest to a New Homed Kitty (like New Born Baby) Balloon that I could find!

Hello Kitties!


Congratulations on the new additions to your family.

Re: Welcome Home Kitties!
Thank you! Its perfect. Duncan and I will be very happy to have some more fur babies in the house again. My Duncan was lonely.

Congratulations Valerie! I love cats and wow its going to be fun having kittens in your house. I'm so sorry I'm only hearing about your loss now. *hug* Can't wait to see lots of cute pics and hear some fun stories!

Thanks for the hug. It was really a difficult time. But when you have a pet, you just have to come to terms with the fact that they don't live forever, as much as we wish they would.

So, its time for another kitty adventure for me. I'm looking forward to it =)

Valerie! That's such exciting news! Congratulations! And of course they recognized that they couldn't possibly find a better home for them than yours. How fun that you're getting two! Have you named them yet, or will you wait to get to know them better first? Along with everyone else, I can't wait to see pictures!

Thanks! I've been thinking of names, and I think I've settled on the name Atticus for the grey one. I'm still undecided on the other. Like you said, sometimes you have to live with them and watch them before a name seems right.

They're going to be spoiled, thats for sure.

Atticus is a wonderful name! To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books and movies of all time. I approve. :)

Thanks! And I'm sure when I'm complaining about them keeping me up all night, you won't feel so jealous, LOL But cats are so worth it.

Just 2 more days to go. I'm waiting for a call from the shelter lady right now so I can go out and buy the right kitty food for them. Though I'll probably switch them to the most healthy stuff if I don't like what she's giving them. Yeah, I'm one of those pet owners, LOL
