More Goodbyes

At this time, all the Lyttletons are nestled into their new homes and getting to know their new families. As you can imagine, six rambunctious kittens create a fair amount of noise, so now that they're gone, It's VERY quiet here.

All the parties departed within a couple of days of each other - Ezra was the first, next came Thelma and Ridley.

Thelma and Ridley got picked quick by their mama, Claire. She came to meet them one afternoon, and minutes later, she decided they would be the two for her.

They do make a great pair. They've always enjoyed the pleasure of each other's company, and out of all the kittens, Thelma's always been the best at keeping her rowdy brother in check. (Ridley's a bit of a butt biter)

I know they'll be so happy with Claire. She's very excited to be a new kitty mama, and is taking lots of steps to spoil her babies.


She emailed right after the kittens got home to let me know all was well. Here's what she had to say...

The little kittens love their new home! I have never seen a kitten (or any baby animal) take to its new home as quickly as these two did! They are totally at ease and almost too cuddly and adorable to handle (almost...)



It's always nice to know they're doing so well, so soon.

Hooray!

  1. So, Paul Harvey, what's the rest of the story!
    Not that this isn't totally delightful news about Thelma and Ridley (could their names be any better!).

    Godspeed Kittens. We will miss your delightful antics. I hope your new forever homes are filled with love and warmth. Of course we look forward to the next batch but just the same I will miss Pia, Gia and Thelma not to mention the rowdy boys.

  4. It's always so sad to see them go, and know that any updates on them will be far less frequent, but also so wonderful to know they've gone to great homes and are already settling in splendidly.

  6. Congratulations, kids! Make Professor Butterbean proud!

    The older Thelma gets, she looks less like dryer lint and more like a pewter sculpture.

    Ahh, I knew they were all gone when I read Butterbean's weekend tweet saying it was quiet over there. Good luck dear kitties! It sounds like you're off to a great start in your new home.

  13. I too thought Butterbean tipped her paw when I saw her tweet about it being quiet. I predict the pace will pick up again soon when another litter of kittens check in at chez IBKC!

    And as for you, dear Lyttletons, hugs and cuddles as you settle into your new forever homes. I bet your new families are all already smitten! Write (and send pictures) when you can! Love you!

  14. Ridley, a butt biter? Oo boy, Thelma; good thing you're going with him to help him mind his manners :)

  15. Amazing how much just a few kittens sound like a thundering herd.. My two younger ones do it very well. The elder third was a pretty good thunderer herself until her co-conspirator died in Oct. Guess she's decided to be a sedate old lady now. Enjoy the peace and quiet, I'm sure that you'll have another gallopin' galoots in short time. :)

  18. Hi Charlene,

    At least you can relax a little and not have to guard your sparkly ball for a bit.

  20. I am going to miss these precious babies more than I have words to describe...

    Such sweet, gentle, loving kittens...

    Dear Laurie, thank you so much for the wonderful and thoughtful way that you shared their lives with us...

    And thank you so much for the work you do, day in and day out, to care for these beautiful animals...

  22. Ridley's got the trouble face. I have a cat with the trouble face, and he's also a butt biter. He's going to need some boundaries!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Deodand....totally! The trouble face that says "Who, me? I'm totally totally innocent!!" Good thing he's got his sister to keep him in line.

    Bye-bye kittens! We'll miss you!
