A Monroe Report!!!

Since Monroe left our nest, I sure have been thinking a lot about him.  I was so happy when I received an email from Emily, Monroe and Fisher's new mom.  

I'm thrilled to report that things are going REALLY great.    In fact, better than I ever expected.    Read for yourself...


We've named them Miles and Cordelia and they're settling in quite well.  Miles spent Monday under the bed, as we figured he would.  But yesterday he started coming out and letting us pet him and today he actually came up to me and started purring when I came in the room.  He seems to enjoy laying on us, purring, and then licking our noses.  


Cordelia is a spitfire.  She plays, eats, and occasionally passes out for a few minutes and then gets up and plays some more.  The two of them are getting along just fine and spend a lot of time chasing each other.  It's incredibly adorable. 


Our older cat, Cleo, is a bit perturbed but seems to be accepting things.  We've still got the kittens confined to the guest room, but will probably let them start venturing out into the rest of the house tonight.  We'll see how it goes. 




Of course we're missing Monroe, but so thrilled the boy is doing so well in his new home with his new little sister!!   I'm so proud of our little guy.

Here are a few pictures from our last morning with Monroe ( I mean Miles).

Thanks so much for the update, Emily!   And thank you once again for adopting this special pair of kittens.   We're so happy they're in your home.

  3. You and Craig and Charlene got the boy off to such a good start! And Sue did the same for Fisher/Cordelia.
    Happy sigh.......

  4. OK, Miles and Cordelia are giving Pearla and Sheldon a run for the title of Cutest Internet Kitty Couple but I sure hope Cordelia has a happier life than her TV namesake.

  8. Glad to see there's another nose-licker cat in the world. My Sebastian is fond of waking me up during the night to pet him... By licking my nose until it's raw.
    I'm also glad to see these two are doing so well. Kittens know good people when they see them - it's obvious you really have found them a great forever home.

  10. Aw, such a great kitten report! I always feel happy/sad when I see the babies in their going-away collars and tags, but knowing they're thriving in their new home makes it all worthwhile.

  12. So glad to hear things are going well! Brilliant to let him have a floofy companion to help him overcome his shyness.

  13. Oh, my, those big serious eyes, and his new sister's lion floof, if I weren't already in love with this pair, I'd fall in love now.

    Thanks for the update! It's good to know that he's coming out of his shell so quickly with his new human staff and having a great time with his sister. I'm sure that their charm will win over Cleo eventually.

  17. Such a happy way to start the new year! Way to go, kittens! I am hoping Monroe/Miles's infatuation with Bean will carry over to Cleo. I hope we shall hear more glowing reports [and pictures?!!] in the future.
