So Long, Langston

 Langston was the first to leave. He was also the first kitten picked.  I had promised Keryn, who is the niece of a dear friend of mine, the first pick of the Von Tussle litter.  She was looking for a sweet kitty friend for Lady Katherine, her very floofy Tabby Point.

As soon as the Von Tussles were ready for meet and greets, she came over with boyfriend John, and they spent a good hour meeting the kittens.   All of the kittens were charming and adorable, and they left that night with tough decision to make.   

Claudette and Langston were the top contenders,  and after a couple of days of thinking on the subject, they decided that Langston, who was a little more reserved than the rest, would be the best pick for Lady Katherine.  I was happy they selected Langston. When they described Lady K's personality, he seemed to be the best match for her.

Langston is doing very well in his new home. He was comfortable from the start, and was eager to share snuggles and purrs with his new parents.  They're pretty thrilled to have him there. 

Lady Katherine is still adjusting to this idea of a new baby brother, but things are progressing, and with each day there's been improvement.  She's been an only cat for four years, so this is a big change for her.

Langston is such an easy fellow and poses no threat.  He always loved the attention and affection he got from  Charlene, and I'm sure once Lady K is ready to give it, he'll be happy to receive it.   We're all confident that they'll be BFFs in time.

Have a good life, dear boy.  We're missing you, but so happy you landed a lovely home.

Von Tussles: Then and Now

We said goodbye to two more of the babies this weekend, and this morning, the last of these dear things leave the nest.  It sure has been a pleasure getting to know this amazing set.  They all landed some very nice homes, and we'll start the departure tales tomorrow.

We've have six wonderful weeks with the Von Tussles.  During this time, they've done a whole lot of growing and changing.  Here are there "before" and "after" shots so you can see the difference.

Trackball Champ

In the Kitten Olympics that takes place in our home each day,  Greta always takes the Gold in Trackball.  

She's fast and her timing is exceptional.  She'll keep the ball in motion for minutes on end.

Look at how she concentrates.  She's waiting for her turn here.  Malcolm has flopped on the opposite side of the track and the has delayed the game.

She can hardly wait to get her paws on that ball!

Fun in the Kitty Cave

This is their new favorite thing in the world: wrasslin' matches in the kitty cave.   My new favorite thing in the world: watching them.

Good times!
