Just a quick note to let you know that the two kitties adopted by our household last month are both settling in and doing great! Dooley (formerly Eric) and Miss Quinn (formerly Tulip) are pictured here, with Quinny a little curious about why I’ve interrupted their morning nap.
The two seemed to have formed some kind of solidarity pact while they were with Butte Humane, and remain devoted to one another. This is very helpful, as Quinn remains quite quiet and timid. However, with each passing day and plenty of patience and playtime, we’re slowly earning her confidence. Dooley, on the other hand? He’s been sleeping on the bed at night and purring like a freight train since the first day we brought him home.
Together, they make delightful companions for each other – and for us! Dooley’s happy, rollicking, cuddly self will continue to allow Quinny to feel at more and more at home. Before we know it, I predict she’ll decide to be a full-on lap cat, just like Dooley. Neither seems to show any interest for the outside (other than enjoying garden views from the windowsills), so they’ll be well-suited and contented as the inside/fireside kitties we were hoping for.
Thanks for providing such a great service to our community, and for sharing these beloved family members with our home!
