Everyone's Favorite Little Gray Girl

Pearla Dearborn stole a lot of hearts the second I posted this picture of her.  Her little gray coat, button eyes, and  pink nose sent everyone squee-ing.

Well, no surprise, but she's grown up to be quite a lovely young lady.

Pearla and Katie feb2012


Pearla was adopted with her brother Sheldon.  Their mom sent us a nice little update on the pair.   I'll share that with you now, and tomorrow we'll wrap up five days of Dearborns with a few pictures of Sheldon.

Here's what Mama Carmen had to say....

I love these little furheads so much it's amazing. Half of the time they run around like complete monsters - chasing tails and sparkle balls and little bits of paper on the floor. They explore every box that comes into the house and any bag on the floor is theirs to own. Then they will go very zen and sit on the kitty tree in the living room and chitter at the birds or just watch the world go by. 


 Every morning they hear the alarm go off and know that it's a bit of snuggle time before we all get out of bed and start the day. Pearla will curl up right next to me and tuck herself in tight. Sheldon likes to spread out and wrap himself around my arm. I know that we're all doing something right when they stop purring because they've fallen asleep. :) 


 Everyone who meets them says how sweet and personable they are. I always explain where they came from and how lucky I am to have graduates from the Bean Finishing School!




Thanks so much for the update, Carmen!   I love how much you love your kitties!  They are lucky to have you!!

  1. Pearla's nose is still the most kissable, boopable nose of any itty bitty that has come through the committee!!! Squeeeeeee!

  2. I must admit that Pearla's baby pic has to be one of my all-time favorite photos. She is certainly a beautiful kitty now.

  6. Yep. THIS is what a kitty's life is supposed to be like, which then makes us humans have a better life too.

  9. I was one of the many who fell in love with Pearla at that first pic, and I'm pleased to say that I'm still in love.
    She is still breathtaking, and I'm so glad to know that she's still a sweetheart.

  10. I still say that she isn't the prettiest kitten ever to come through IBKC, but she sure was the cutest. That first picture absolutely slew me. My first reaction when I saw that photo was "oh dear lord is that a cat or a cuteness-based mind control device?"

    Glad to see she's still doing so well!

  13. Pearla is among my favorites...as are all the IBKC's ;-)

    I am thrilled to see that she still has that special little "I know something YOU don't" smile. She is too nice for it to be a smirk.

  22. She was a precious baby and now she's a gorgeous grown-up girl! Such a lovely kittycat!

  23. I am enjoying seeing IBK alumni all grown up! Little Miss Pearla is beautiful, as are all of her siblings. I'm already looking forward to seeing grown up Sheldon tomorrow. Thanks for the updates!

  24. She was a beautiful baby, but, baby, look at her now - simply stunning! And the morning cuddle time seems cute beyond imagination!

  27. Oh she's lovely-reminds me of my own pretty grey/white girl!

  28. She's SO pink! I mean I know she's a grey and white kitty but her nose is SO pink! Her paw pads are SO pink (my cat is black and her nose and paw pads are black so I'm not used to that much pinkness! She seems more pink than others!) - She's so adorable! I'm loving these updates. I think she might be my favourite and that is saying A LOT!

  29. What a sweet face! Although, like Sam Francine Darling will always be my ultimate, Perla's pink nose and white "napkin" are entrancing.

  30. Just like Drewey, just younger, and without as much crank.
