Alicia just sent me the Maddie report, and I thought I would share it with you. She and Maddie were staying with her folks in Texas, but now they have moved on to their permanent home in Boston. Maddie is quite the seasoned traveler ! I hope she's getting frequent flyer miles... she's accumulated a few thousand now, at least.

The photo above is Maddie with big sister Sophie. Photo credit goes to Maddie's daddy Tony.

Anyway,, here's what Alicia had to say:

I thought you'd like to know how little Miss Maddie's doing -- very, very well. You would not believe how big she is getting. Her tail is soooo long and she has these huge paws and ears she will grow into, like a gangly teenager. Curled up now, she is about the size of a dinner plate. Her legs are so tall and she is so energetic. Her latest trick is jumping onto my back whenever I bend over.

Maddie and I just flew into Boston last night. She was a little upset on the flight, but I was right there with my hand on the carrier for her to rub against if she needed me. I made sure she could see me at all times and I think that helped. She was very admired by everyone at the airport! They all said she had such a sweet face.

She has be doing great here at he house; in fact she already acts like she owns the place. She purred immediately when she met Tony again and loves to sit on his chest or curl up next to him. Sophie, our other tortie, is a very cautiuos kitty and is a little unsettled by Maddie's quick movements. There has a been a little hissing and growling, but I think it will just take some time for Sophie to adjust.


  1. Thanks for the update, glad to see she is doing well!!!

  2. Oh, THANKS, Alicia! There are lots of neat tips about introducing kitties to each other, but they'll be pals in no time. I'd have to say, from MY viewpoint, I'm tickled "our" Maddie's with you, and I think your family's wonderful. WARM GREETINGS to cold Boston from *colder* Wisconsin!

  3. hooray, I am glad that Maddie is doing well. She is growing into a very elegant young lady cat! I hope she and Sophie become friends soon.

  4. It's so wonderful to read these updates! Thank you, Alicia. It's good to hear that Maddie is doing so well.

  5. Thanks for the update, Alicia!! I'm glad Miss Maddie is doing so well - and she is getting to be such a grown up little lady! I'm sure she and Sophie will get used to eachother soon, and with time become best friends. Thank you and Tony for being such wonderful cat-parents to a little girl that so many of us got attached to!

  6. Wow! She's getting so big! I'm glad she's doing well. :)

  7. Aaawwwww SO happy to hear Maddie is happy and well, and has a wonderful loving family!
