Purrfect Pals and Victor Updates

Don't stop now! Purrfect Pals is pulling ahead!

I see Purrfect Pals has inched ahead in the Shelter Challenge! Thank you! I greatly appreciate your willingness to help the shelter that was willing to give Sue's Myron a home for the rest of his life, when he was diagnosed FeLV positive. Poor Sue quite obviously couldn't because she fosters. And then, miraculously, he tested negative and is now looking for a furever home! Let's help Purrfect Pals and celebrate the miracle, too... vote today, and every day, until April 18th!! Instructions are in the sidebar.

(Of course all the shelters are wonderful, so no matter who wins, the critters do!!)

Woohoo! How Victor has grown!

Cute little Victor was from a pre-blog litter (my first... but not the first for the kind hearted folks at the Institute). Here's a note from his furever mom - my niece, Shelly:

"I was just looking at the Space Paws page and wanted to send a little update on my baby boy, Victor (one of the first litter - Bitty is his kitty mom). I saw the post about him trying to escape and had to laugh. He has not changed a bit! He is becoming an even more talented escape artist.

We always thought he was a bit dim, but he is REALLY smart. I think he just played dumb to lull us in to a false sense of security! He has even escaped without anyone noticing until we see him romping in the neighbor's yard. He also knows certain words, such as "catch". I would ask my mom if she would help me catch him, and he would know what was up right away. We now must use the word "procure", he hasn't figured that one out (yet)!

The older he gets, the smarter he lets us know he is. I have attached a recent photo of him so everyone can see what a handsome cat he has grown up to be! A big thank you to Aunt Lisa for letting me have such a wonderful and entertaining kitty!"

So here are some Victor pics from the archives (2007) .. and Victor today!

If Mom likes it, I'll try it... I like it!! I really like it!

Why do I climb the bean? Because it is there!

Ferocious kitten eats fingers!

Victor makes friends at the first 'tute meet'n'greet.
