how sweet.....

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!

With Cleo moving from the store and being adopted, it was time to bring in some new cats to the Petco store.....

Miss Beckie and Miss Mona (the head rescue lady) recommended that mom pick up an older kitten named Smudge from the adoption center as she wasn't adjusting to being around so many cats.

The ended with the score being Smudge 2, Mom 0.  MOL......  Mom tried twice to get Smudge. The second time mom grabbed her and Smudge turned and sunk her claws into mom. So much for that. This while mom is in the kitten room standing on a bench trying to get Smudge off a ledge over her head. Mom let Smudge go and looked out the glass door to see Miss Mona cracking up. Oh well, at least SHE was having a good time!!

So, a change of plan. Mom ended up taking 3 kittens that are about 6 months old. They hadn't been there long enough to be named yet, so mom got to do it. They are:
 Altas (gray male)

Hera (gray female)

Styx (black female)
first seen Monday after meeting the pepper boys on Sunday

Mom did have to laugh at them a little. They are SUPER sweet and lovey..... but apparently they didn't get the memo about having to sing the warrior song while in the PTU in the car. Mom got to store, turned off the car, and they were PURRING so loud she could hear them from the back seat.  WHAT?????

Update (we gotta teach mom not to post in advance - MOL)
Atlas had to go back to the adoption center. He wasn't feeling so hot and needed to be seen by a v-e-t. We will keep you posted as we learn more about what is up with him.
And......Styx went home last night with her new family. YEAH!!

  2. Gosh,they didn't stay at your house long. Hope that Atlas is all right. Yay for Styx. That was quick. Hope Hera finds a home soon. Looks like Smudge will be there for a long time. Poor cat. Or I guess I should say, Poor mom. Wonder what makes cats like that. Our Baby Doll I think could be like that.

  3. Marg: they were never at my house - these guys went straight from the adoption center to the Petco store. Smudge got a URI and is now back with her original foster mom - who says she is wonderful. :)

  5. I hope Smudge behaves a bit better with prospective adopters. Those are the cats I feel sorry for; they need to improve their dispositions to get out of their situations, but it's their situations that give them the bad dispositions. She's probably scared and upset.

  11. I hope Atlas will be just fine! Aren't they sweeties?

    You know, Annie and Chumley never made a peep in the carrier. Ever. I didn't realize cats could "sing" so loudly until Nicki and Derry!

    Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

    I like the new look on the blog. Not sure when you switched but I've been MIA for a while due to a huge project at work taking about 16+ hours per day, including weekends.
