We're down to just two Furmans now - Curtis and Teddy said their goodbyes Sunday evening. Where did they go? It's kind of a long story, let me explain....
SOOOO remember Alison, who flew all the way from Virginia with her friend Eleanor to come to our house for Tea with The Bean? Well, while they were visiting the northwest, they stayed in Seattle with Alison's friend. This friend had a neighbor who just happened to be looking for kittens and they told her all about the IBKC. Judy, the neighbor visited our blog, contacted me, met the Furmans, and voila, Teddy and Curtis found their family.
Isn't that nice how it all worked out? And now, when Alison visits her friend in Seattle, she'll be able to check in on the boys for us!
The boys won't be alone either, they now have a sweet, mellow, black Lab for a sister! There may be some other dogs in their future too because their new family fosters potential service dogs!
It's nice to know they've moved in with some critter-loving people.
I just got an update from Judy, and it sounds like things are going REALLY great. Here's what she had to say...
We are so glad they are here - They are fun to watch, and seem to be doing great. Initially I blocked off ouur kitchen with our puppy gate, along with another gate bungied to it so that they could not climb under. It worked great all evening, with me sitting with them in the "reading room" off of our kitchen. And then I tried to leave the kitchen!!!! They climbed right over the gate, and followed me. Now they have run of the house, except for closed doors, and are wonderful.
My next door neighbor, a 5 year old, has adopted Teddy - she came over after kindergarten, carried him around, took them both on a "trip to Chicago" to visit a kitten camp (imaginary, of course, carrying them in the kitten carrier).
We are falling in love with the kittens - they are just want we wanted. I am sure there will be challenges ahead, but right now.....
And the dog? Teddy has already groomed her as she lay on her bed, and Teddy is a bit amazed of such a large creature chasing her tennis ball. I will send pictures.
Before the boys left, they got some Bean time in. Here are a few pictures of their final cuddle session.
