Have Mercy, Meet Percy!
Percival VanHopper came into the HS as a stray kitten, with no other siblings. Sue had been taking a break from fostering, but when she heard of this singleton, she knew had to take him in. Shortly thereafter, she decided he needed a mate, then two, and the VanHopper Sisters moved in.
It was instant harmony. There was absolutely no adjustment period.
A week or so later, I was contacted by a friend, Nance, who was looking for a lovely boy kitty. She and Jen had lost their little love a few months back, and they were ready to bring a new one into their life. Their girl-kitty, Olive, had been missing her brother too, and was ready for a playmate once again.
I told Nance we were kitten free, but mentioned Percy and shared a picture of him. They had always had tabby cats before, and that was their first choice, but once they saw a picture of this boy, they fell in love.
She contacted Sue and found out all about this fabulous kitten gem. His personality sounded like a perfect match for thier home, so the meeting was arranged.
The meet and greet went great, of course. Again,, instant harmony. No adjustment period. He just curled up in their arms and gladly accepted their cuddles and kisses.
The paperwork was completed, with Percy perched on Nance's shoulder.
A round of hugs, a few happy tears, a brief discussion about who drives and who holds the kitten,, and off the family went. I couldn't imagine a happier ending for this (or any) kitten's story.
