ADOPTED

Back in July of last year, we were asked to take a pair of shy kittens with colds. The lady who brought them to the rescue had named them and since it was the beginning of July, she picked Freedom and Liberty. Mom took of poll of our cat blogging friends and they were tagged the Patriot Kittens.


They gave mom a SERIOUS run for her money. They had to be medicated...and hated it. They needed to be socialized....and wanted nothing to do with it.

Mom pulled out all the tricks and while they certainly got better, they never really decided they like mom a whole lot. Which, she will tell you is fine. They don't have to like her, but they do have to learn to be social or they won't get adopted. After some work with them, it was decided they did need to be adopted as a bonded pair as Liberty is SO much shyer than her sister.

The kittens went up to a partner store....and were there for several months.

 

Well....about 10 days ago mom got a call and there was an application for the girls (there have been a couple of others but they both fell through for various reasons). Retired couple - own their home - no other pets. This could be the one. Mom called them that night and went over EVERYTHING - Liberty is super shy....they are sneezy.....etc. C and B asked lots of good questions and said they were ready to move forward. However, they were going to be gone all weekend. Mom agreed the girls could stay at the store, and last Monday night they went home. We didn't post right away to be sure the new family had time to see if it would work. B has been in to the store and told the clerks it is going well.

  2. Those more challenging adoptions are such a reason to celebrate! Congratulations. As an aside, I recently had an adoption of a kitten/teen who was always very standoffish with me. The report from her family is she follows them and is with them *all* the time. So you never know.

  3. Excellent news. I am glad the pair went together. It was last July that they came to stay with you? Wow, time flies. But now, they will have all the time in the world. Good luck to them in their new home.
