A nice girl named Rachel came on Friday night to meet the kittens. She wanted two so they wouldn't be lonely (good sign), was open to my suggestion that she take Thor and Scaredy Cat, since they seemed to be the two that played together most often. Plus, as I told her, it was a good mix - Thor is outgoing and fearless while Scaredy is, well, you can imagine. I couldn't find Thor anywhere, so she and her brother had to hang out with me while I searched my house for a good ten minutes. When I finally found him and brought him out, she gasped at how cute he was. Perfect!
After she left with them, I sat down on the couch and just CRIED. Then I looked down and realized the silver cat sitting before me was Scaredy Cat. "YOU SHOULDN'T BE HERE!" In my upset confusion, I gave her the wrong silver cat. I called her and, get this, she drove back to my house to get the right one! Then I knew she was the right girl for the cat mama job. :) She wrote me today to let me know that they're doing great and are sleeping in the bed with her now.. :)
The OS (other silver) cat, now named Esmerelda (Esme) went home with Alli on Saturday night. Her big boy cat DIno is terrified of her.. whaa.. but they've been touching noses and, when I was there yesterday I caught Dino licking on the baby cat. Another good home. :)
Now it's just me and Mini and the other cats. Mamacat went into heat.. lucky, lucky me.. She's only been howling every now and then, but last night I caught her up on the screen by the big black cat I call Elvis. Stop flirting! No more babies!
Girls. What can you do?
