We've received some really, really, nice emails from former adopters over the course of the Thanksgiving weekend. It made us even more grateful for the continued love and care they are giving to our former guests, and it warmed our hearts to hear and see these kids all doing so well.......
The caption that came with this photo was "Oh it's so exhausting hosting Thanksgiving". We're sure it is sweet boy but we are also very thankful after your recent health scare that you were here to revel in it.
Then we received the following email from Pica's Mom......
This weekend I wanted to reach out and thank you for all you do for cats needing new homes. Pica has been with us for almost a year now and we are all happy and healthy. Pica greets us each morning by running to "her" carpet, where she flops on her side ready for some love (coffee must wait!). She prowls between our home offices, where she can keep an eye on us during the day, or knock a few pencils off our desks if we ignore her too long. Late in the evening, she is off to the basement, where she joins our son (who is a night owl). If everyone is busy there is always that pesky tail to be chased (we're still not sure she understands it's attached!) or the plastic strip off the salad box to attack (we've given up buying cat toys--the plastic strip provides never-ending entertainment).
Pica will never be a lap cat, but she is happy to be held in our arms for short periods and happy to play anytime. She is no longer shy and will eagerly greet any of our son's friends who drop by.
Him laying in the sunshine is my favourite. He was so skinny and timid when he first arrived with us - now the contentment he has with his Mom just radiates from him.
Oscar is doing great. You'll be happy to hear that he has filled out a bit. He's got a little bit of a belly on him now. He continues to be very affectionate and playful.
