Adios, Ambrose! So Long, Louise !!
We said our goodbyes to Louise and Ambrose on Saturday. I promise we'll have lots of updates on these two because our good friends, William and Iris, were the ones who adopted them.
Craig and William go WAAAAAAY back. In fact, when I first met Craig, he and William were roommates. That was nearly 17 years ago, and they were friends for years before that too.
William and Iris are good, kitty-loving folks. Just this past spring they said goodbye to Ziggy, their 20+ year old cat. After Ziggy's passing, William contacted me to say that they would be in the market for a pair of kitties soon. There was a hole in their lives, that needed to be filled. When the Anderson-Ericksons moved in, I invited William and Iris down to meet the litter.
Just like Erin and Erik who adopted Emory and Ferris, William and Iris wanted to be chosen by their kittens. That's exactly what happened. Louise chose Iris, and Ambrose chose William.
Funny thing is, because of his coat length, I think Ambrose wasn't really wasn't a contender. They preferred shorter haired cats, but Ambrose just weaseled his way into to their hearts, and won them over. No surprise there, he is a TOTAL charmer. Who can resist that floof and that sweet little face.
Now, we're down to just two kitties and it's so quiet around here! Charlene has been having a whole lot of fun playing with just Clement and Bernice. They have complete run of the house now, and have been having a great time exploring the upstairs and running up and down the steps.
I think Charlene was growing tired of having six rambunctious kittens running about. It can be too much for her at times, and I can see her patience wearing thin. Two is perfect. She can keep them in check, and keep them clean too.
Clement and Bernice leave Wednesday at 10:00 AM. I'll be down to the shelter by noon, in search of our next little kitty family. It's always exciting to see who's next!
