How's Hurley Huddleston?

Well, he's awesome!

I just got a note from Karin, his mama, and she reported things are going great for the little guy.  He became fast friends with his new brother Allen, and they're living a great life together.

From Karin:

They're sharing space and litter boxes, grooming each other, having both cuddly moments and rough-and-tumble play. Hurley has conquered the 3-level "condo," moving with ease between the basement and the upstairs loft. Allen alerted us that the kitten food is mislabeled; he says it should read "Brother and Baby Cat."

I love how quickly they bonded.  They do look so happy together, don't they?

Thanks so much for sharing a Hurley update and these sweet photos, Karin!  I'm so thrilled things are going so great!

Aww Heck, Not Yet!


 I popped into the Foster Room yesterday hoping to pick up a set of cuties to bring home. There were several sets of mamas with tiny babies and a few teen cats in need of some socialization, but no little orphan kittens for us.

Things have been pretty busy down there so I would be really surprised if our wait was long at all.

Should they arrive today or tomorrow (the shelter is closed Sunday and Monday) I'll pop over here and share a peek.  We'll blast in on the social media too, of course.

I know you're itchin' for kittens -- I'm sorry we'll be waiting just a wee bit longer!  Hopefully, just a day or so. Stay tuned!

We're Home!


Our flight that was already a late one got delayed a bit thanks to some mechanical issues. Interstate traffic went down to one lane near  Tacoma and created a big slow-down right by our exit.  But finally,  at some point in the middle of the night, we did make it home from our travels.

Normally Wylla and Charlene are waiting at the door for us, but they were both sound asleep upstairs and didn't make their appearance until I was half way done sorting through a week's worth of mail.

When they finally came down,  both paused in the living room with a look that said "Is it you? Is it really you?" before they trotted over to greet us.

We scooped them up, gave lots of hugs, got lots of purrs, then put them down so they could inspect our luggage and shoes.

I quickly got ready for bed, then went upstairs and slipped under the covers. Bean soon joined me, then Wylla, then Craig, and the next thing I knew it was morning.  I woke up with Bean sound asleep on my back with her chin resting between my shoulders.  Wylla was at my side.  Usually, such close snuggles are reserved for colder nights.

I guess they missed us.

Now that we're back, we're ready to receive babies once again. As soon as I'm done returning some emails, making some calls, and catching up on a couple of things this morning, we'll check in with the Foster Department and see if there might be some cuties that need us!  I'll be sure to keep you posted!

A Little More Mimsey


Mimsey is such a love bug. She always welcomes any pets, scratches, or belly rubs and says "thanks" with a few squints.  She can't walk by without brushing up against you to say "hello."  She's highly huggable.

I'm not sure if she remembers her kitten days with us, or just remembers our recent visits, but it always seems that we feel familiar to Mimsey.




As always, we've enjoyed our time here, but we're ready to get home to see Wylla and Charlene. Even when I'm gone just a few days, I always miss my girls a ridiculous amount. I can't wait to get home and give them both a good squeeze!
