* Trudy and Lawrie are still here, too. Dad Ricky is moving and it is taking longer than planned. So as not to upset them with the turmoil, they're going to stay with me until the new digs are ready. I, of course, was thrilled. They get along so well with Bitty, Peggy Sue, Sophie and even Annie! But, with six in residence, I hate to shut off another room now that the basement is occupied with mama the babies (who are doing just great, btw). This is a little house! LOL!
Tang, just back from his neuter:
Here's his story: Co-worker Karen found Tang on her property. Poor guy was pretty beaten up and nothing but skin and bones. She and her daughter, Lexi, watched over his wounds and helped him put a little weight on. Sadly, she can't keep him - she's already got 5 cats and a slew of dogs. So we went off to Doc Andrew, got him his tests (FeLV and FIV both negative! Yay!) and his shots last week. Today was his neuter and he came home to the Casa. He'll be in my bedroom for a couple of days, while he recuperates from the surgery.
Karen reports he's a super lover boy, very tolerant and not aggressive with other critters. He's only been here a few hours and I can vouch for that. OMG! Does that cat love lovin'!! I'm gonna have me a snuggler for sure! Turns out Annie was hiding in my room when I thought it was empty and when they met, after a perfunctory hiss from her, they pretty much ignored one another in an easy sort of way - a very good start. Here's a little footage of his first day with us:
Now, we didn't know what to call him and vet tech, Jenn, suggested Tang because of his coloring. I'm not really sure he's a Tang. Over the next few days I'll gladly take suggestions and we'll do another random drawing to christen him! No shakedown this time... LOL! (You didn't mind, did you? The raffle to name the babies was for a good cause!) To name our boy, just leave a comment between now and next Tuesday, with the name you like, and we'll pull one out of the hat next Wednesday, OK?
Sorry I did not get around to visit today... I've kinda been otherwise occupied. But tomorrow, I'm looking forward to finding out what you've been up to! I miss you guys!!!
