Anyway, back to the kittehs: We are very, very, very thankful to my sis for talking up Opie!! That's how he found his furever family. She was at her son's in-law's for dinner when their son said he was looking for a companion for his Charlie. Oh, she sold him, but good!
So Kevin came over to meet Opie. We took it slow, since Opie and Charlie were both adults, and Opie went to live with them on a foster-to-adopt basis. Turns out Kevin lives just up the road from me. I knew things were good when Kevin referred to Opie as Homer (thanks to his cute 'stash and beard). I read on Kevin's Facebook that Charlie now had a partner in crime!! It was a match!
Think he's relaxed and made himself at home? Kevin, says 65% of the joy of being subject to a feline overlord is taking pictures of them sleeping.
New brofur, Charlie, is as energetic as Homer (thank heaven!) and the two of them cavort and wrestle. It's a veritable den of testosterone over there!
Not so sure about Homer at first, were you Charlie?
Just teasing. Kevin is great - keeps me updated about the boys and he even joined us for Thanksgiving! I hadn't even really met Kevin at Mark and Liz's wedding (had NO idea what he looked like when he came to meet Opie), so it's been great to get to know him and great to have extended family in the neighborhood!
And, in case you had any doubts that it's a small, small world... Kevin's good friend, Mike, starts work at STScI in January. Mike and his wife volunteer at the local SPCA. Wonder if they'll be willing to be Space Paws foster parents... hmmmmm....
Next post, we'll finish up Loki's story.
