YAY! And then there were FIVE of us! [Jul. 5th, 2009|07:09 pm]

We adopted 2 cats on the way home today. The kitty who chose us won't be coming home until Tuesday as she needs her foot looked at by the vet. Her name is Stardust. Both cats are just the sweet, cuddly, kind cats we'd been looking for and I'm so glad to welcome them to our family. Stardust is 2 years old and Tizzy is going to be 6 in August.

This is Tizzy, who is sweet and calm.

Tizzy came home today and she is afraid and hiding right now.

Real pictures from us as soon as she is less scared.


This is Stardust who is the most cuddly and affectionate kitty ever! She was on my lap every second possible.

She is much prettier than this sad photo, but I'll take a new one when she gets here on Tuesday. They aren't related, but they were living in the same room together peaceably, so we know they get along ok with one another.

They are beautiful babies. Also, as a cat rescuer, I want to thank you for adopting adult cats. They are often over looked (especially during kitten season) and need good people to love them.

Thanks! Poor Tizzy has been in the shelter since January (this time-She was in for 6 months as a kitten too). People won't adopt black cats because they are superstitious sometimes, but Stardust picked me and I just couldn't leave her there after she spent time on my lap. Tizzy is clamer and less in your face, but also a very sweet cat. We wanted to get males, but we met these cats and they picked us, so as of Tuesday our family is complete!! Yay! So happy to have these new additions.

We are following the shelter recommendations for introducing them slowly and UGH we got no sleep and Ashley got so mad she bit Craig's ankle. *sigh* It's gonna be a rough week.

You might also try taking a towel and rubbing it all over Ashley and then putting it under Tizzy and Stardusts food bowls and vice versa. It will help them all get used to the smells and realize they are supposed to be there.

That sounds good! Oh,..this gives me an idea. I have the little liner from Tizzy's cat carrier that she was in. I can put that under Ashley's dish tonight.

Thanks. I was discouraged and fretting, but seeing how much better the girls were doing already this morning got me feeling like it is going to get better. It may be a tough week, but it will be worth it.

We warn people that it could take at least a week, but my three all got along after 3 days (or less).
