Here's another cute shot of our gorgeous Mako. I didn't realize he even likes to sit on the back of this chair in our home office until I've been off on vacation this week and discovered it while at home in the afternoon!

He literally follows me everywhere, all the time - much more like a dog than a cat. He's happiest when he's in close proximity and purrs at the drop of a hat............hard to believe he's still without his forever family.

Mako's got taking it easy down to a fine art! This morning I caught him settling into one of his favourite places (our bed), to take a well deserved mid morning snooze..........after a very tough early morning getting us up for breakfast, a snack, and a litterbox cleaning.

Still no adoption calls but that just means that people out there don't know who they are passing by.

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.

Mako is still our current houseguest. Somewhat surprisingly, there hasn't been one adoption call for him as of yet. We suspect that it may due to the fact that we've disclosed he has a slight heart murmur. He doesn't appear to be suffering in any way shape or form from it, nor does it hamper his ability to play or enjoy daily life. Our Miss Remy had a heart murmur and she lived to be 16 so we don't feel it would be a deal breaker for us in any way shape or form; but it's likely causing others to pause.

He is so beautiful and SUCH a lovebug! Quite fearful of loud noises and sudden movements, he startles easily but he also is becoming less nervous all the time and doesn't hide hardly at all anymore. He loves to be brushed, to snack on Temptations treats, and to snuggle under covers. Sometimes we come upstairs unable to find him, only to realize that he's under our duvet on the bed or has burrowed under my housecoat. He's also found peace with our two boys - although I would like to see him go to a home as the only kitty (because I think he would be less nervous there), he could also find coexistence with another feline, but it would have to be one that is VERY laid back and non threatening. He grew to like Ivey quite quickly so a female could be a better choice than another male.

He's a lovely's to his lovely forever home finding him.
