Sunday Selfies with the New Kids

They have arrived! Yesterday morning, Ross and I drove up to Best Friends in Los Angeles to pick up some new foster kittens. We ended up with the “Y” litter – all with Y names – Yonkerz, Yammerz, Yupperz, Yapperz. A little silly, so we decided to give them nicknames while they’re here.

I’m pleased to introduce you to Buster, Zip, Callie and Casper. Here they are on the way home. Zip is the vocal one. Continue reading “Sunday Selfies with the New Kids”

I had planned on doing a “Meet Hope” post this week to let potential adopters know how foster cat Hope is in a home environment. As it turns out, such a post is not necessary!

I briefly mentioned how we were told that Hope may need a lot of time to adjust. But she came out of her shell quickly, loved attention, playing and just hanging out. She doesn’t like being picked up, but I believe she may eventually be a lap cat. She would crawl across my lap toward the end of her stay here, but never really settled for long.
