How to Win Friends and Influence People
Last week I was contacted by a lovely gal named Cori. She was interested in adopting a pair of kittens. Trudy and Lyle were the ones that caught her eye.
At that point, Lyle and Trudy had already been spoken for. I told her that Davy and Albert were still available, and she was excited to meet the pair.
If she wasn't in love with the two before she got here, it may had happened when she drove up, and saw them nestled in the window. And if she hadn't fallen in love at that point, it happened minutes later when little Albert decided to climb up and perch his little kitty booty right there on her shoulder, almost to say, "I'm picking you". He sat there for another ten minutes, at least. The deal was sealed. Nice work, Albert.
Davy was equally charming that day, with his big, blinking, bright eyes and squirrelly kitten ways. He did an impressive exercise routine on the living room rug to dazzle us all. He's quite the acrobat.
Separately, these two are pretty amazing, but there's something about them as a pair, that's just enchanting. Needless to say, I'm thrilled they are going together.
Albert just hit the two pound mark, and he's scheduled to go in on Friday for surgery. Albert and Davy (AKA the bookends) will be departing this Saturday.
We're equally thrilled that Lyle and Trudy are staying together. Of course it was sad to say goodbye to them this past weekend. We are already missing the two little sweet peas.
Lisa, their new mama,is wonderful. She had been following the IBKC for a while. She had inquired about Orson, but he had already been spoken for. Later, she contacted Sue about The Treadwells, but they too, had already found their home. She was quick to respond when The Livermores became available. She got the pick of the litter, and she picked Trudy and Lyle.
Lisa is kind and sweet and will give them all the love and attention they deserve. I couldn't imagine a more perfect home for the two.
She just emailed today and said that they are both doing really great and she couldn't be any happier than she is right now.
This is as good as it gets,,, all the kittens going out in pairs and to the perfect people for their personalities. AND they are all keeping their names too, which always makes me happy.
Hip,hip, hooray for the Livermore Four.
