So Long to the Last Suprenant Sister

DSC_1097

Ve Ching was not short on suitors, but for one reason or another, things were just not panning out. There were appointment cancelations, cold feet, and no-shows for meet and greets. FINALLY I got a very promising email from a gal named Megan, who had fallen in love with Ve Ching, and thought she might be a good fit for her family.

Megan came over for a visit yesterday with her children and sister too, and yep, perfect fit. Miss V was very curious about the kids, and enjoyed playing with them. Elliot, Megan's five year old son was sweet and gentle with V. You could tell he and his mother had at least a few conversations about how to handle and play a little kitten. He was so good with her.

Oh, and when Charlene entered the room he said "That's a whole lot of cat". No argument there.

Megan is a stay at home mom, so Miss Ve will have constant companionship. She'll also have the kids to keep her entertained.

So it took awhile for V's family to find their way to us, but I think it was worth the wait, and there was a reason why all those other folks weren't working out.

I got an email yesterday afternoon from Megan, and she said Miss V was doing great. She had exhausted herself exploring and playing. You'll be happy to know, Megan promises to send pictures.

We certainly enjoyed our time with Miss V, but so happy she found her perfect family.

Charlene enjoyed her too, but all that babysitting wore Miss Bean out, and I think she's ready to catch up on some napping.

Here are a few pictures, and a video too, of Miss B's last day with Miss V.

  3. Oh, Miss V, your wait was worth it! I am delighted your new mom promises to send pictures in the future and a 5yr. old brother who more than likely will find fascinating things to build for you to knock down. What fun you'll bring to your new family.

  4. I love to hear about kitten-friendly small children, and their awesome parents! Sounds like a great match all around.

  5. It sounds as if both Charlene and her mom might need a bit of a kitten hiatus after nonstop fundraising, kitty wrangling, etc., etc. We fans of all things ibkc can be most patient when asked.

  6. Oh, and if Miss V needs a sister, I know a bee-yoo-ti-ful (and demanding) orange gal named Lucy who is going to need a home soon :)

  13. That video is wonderful. I almost yelled, "Not her tail, Ve!", and the end where Charlene tried to bathe her into submission and ended up bathing her own feet".
    Perfect sendoff!

  15. When licking turns into bunny kicks...

  16. Anne, I actually DID yell, "Not her tail, Ve! -- don't do it!!" :) What a great video. For a big girl, Charlene is light on her feet. Maybe she's less George Foreman than I thought, and more Evander Holyfield. In either case, loved watching Charlene get "chased off" by Ve Ching. Thanks!

  17. Miss B is so gentle with Ve in the video, yet doesn't take any guff. You're a perfect big sister, Charlene!

  18. "Charlene Butterbean: A Whole Lot Of Cat" should be a bumper sticker or something - how adorable!

  19. Awww, Elliot sounds like a smart kid! Charlene IS a whole lot of cat!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay for Ve's new home!

    I love the video. Charlene has a truly impressive tail (Melly would have a field day with it!). Elliot's assessment of Charlene is spot on. :)

  21. How can anyone resist Charlene's magnificent tail? I not a kitten and even I want to start batting the screen when she swishes it.

    Yay Miss Ve Ching has a forever home and it sounds like a really good one. Nothing like a home with constant attention for a wee kitten. Great to read that Elliot has been instructed on how to treat kittens with care. I love the comment "a whole lot of cat". Love the video of Miss B and Ve chasing and wrestling.

  23. Wow! What a awesome family for a lovely girl kitty! Ve is going to be just fine. I too am amazed at how so often things work out for the absolute best!

    And Bean - that is one kitten-tempting floof tail you have. No wonder they are all hypnotized around you! Smoooches for another kitten family well raised!

  24. well i supposed Miss Ve is exiting 'stage left' just in time. the video clearly shows that her kitten brains have fallen out and she is challenging the Bean to a throw down ( Ve being the throw-E) Nap well Beanie-Floof. the next group of babies is right around the corner!

  25. Goodbye and good luck, sweet baby girl!

    Lovely photos, and the video is hilarious. I could watch kitties play all day!

  26. That Elliot is obviously a fine judge of catflesh. A whole lot of cat, indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Boy, Ms. Butterbean loves to whip that tail around..."I double dog dare you!!!"

    Meowy Hugs, Robin

  28. Good luck little one! I hope you get a sister or brother to play with. Humans are great, but nothing is like playing with one of your own. Here's a tip for getting extra treats, stick close to the boy and be his friend. He'll feed you some of whatever's he's eating. :)

  29. A whole lot of FLOOFY!

    @Anne B., Cynthia S., I, too, was (internally) yelling "Don't do it, Ve! Not the tail!"

    I like this kid. :-)
