Flip Finds a Home!

DSC_0107

 Daniel and Rachel came over to meet the Winklers, in hopes of finding the perfect kitten to bring into their home.    Leonard had already been spoken for, so they had to decide between Flip, Franklin, Bibi and Daphne.  We chatted and watched the kittens play, then I excused myself so they could discuss these four adorable options.     We had another couple coming after their meet and greet, so they had to make their decision that evening.

After  much debate, they decided Flip would be the one.

We said our goodbyes,  we had  meet-and-greet number two, couple number two decided on a pair, and Daniel and Rachel called back.

They had been discussing the kittens over dinner, and as excited as they were to be adopting Flip, they were sad to leave Bibi behind.   They called to see if Bibi might be available, and if she were, they thought maybe they needed two kittens and not just one.  

And she was, and so now she's theirs too!

We're thrilled how it all played out.    We always love sending them out in pairs and Bibi and Flip make a wonderful kitten couple.

I've gotten a few emails form Rachel, and it sounds like they are so happy with their decision.

  3. yay for Flip and Bibi! I'm so happy Bibi won't be alone. Not because she is teeny -- obviously she is a tough little one given her domain of the couch -- but she seems very attached to her siblings.

    I love the Winklers. I can't wait to see Daphne and Franklin with their yellow graduate tags!

  4. I spent two whole sentences feeling so sorry for poor left-behind-Bibi! So glad she's heading to a new home with Flip!

  5. Thank you Daniel and Rachel for adopting *both* Flip and Bibi!!! Yay!!! The kitties will be so happy paired up, and so will you I'm sure. Now as long as everyone relinquishes the couch to Bibi, your household should be so happy!

  8. So, does that mean that Franklin and Daphne are being adopted together also? Did I read that right?

  9. Aw, I love brother/sister cat teams. And their markings are the most similar to each other's of the litter.

  10. Thank you to Daniel and Rachel for taking the extra kittenling. Two is no more trouble and a lot more fun.

  11. Fantabulous! Flip is an adorable little guy.

    I was worrying about Miss Bibi going out solo (not sure why, really) so I am glad she and Flip will spend their lively lives together!

  12. Aw that's wonderful! Kittens are definitely best in pairs...they keep each other company and wear each other out-very important at that age! And of course they are just that much more fun to watch in pairs. Congrats Daniel and Rachel, and Bibi and Flip! Hope to see updates in the future...

  13. Glad to hear all the Winklers got great homes! Congrats to Daniel & Rachel for adopting BOTH kittens at once! I hear Ikea has a sale on couches, you will need a 2nd one to sit on!

  14. Oh, how lovely! Daniel and Rachel got my two favorite kittens in the Winkler family, and definitely the two cutest (although, on a scale of insanely-cute-to-even-more-insanely-cute, it's kind of hard to distinguish gradations of cuteness!) -- and my, are they going to have fun with them!

    I do hope they send in occasional pictures; I'd love to see if Bibi finally catches up size-wise with her big brother. And yes, as others have said, it's time to get yourselves a couch since you probably just lost the existing one to a 2-pound morsel of a kitten! :)

  15. I am beyond thrilled these babies go together. Leonard had a built-in big brother to go home to. All is right with the world. :)

  16. Flip and Bibi make the perfect pair. Hooray for everyone!

  17. Yay!!

    I love it when babies go out in pairs. I feel like our family wasn't complete till we got a second kitten and now 3 years later I am so happy we took two! Even if we took them a month apart.

  19. Awww, Flip and Bibi going to their forever home together! What a happy story. Special little Bibi won't have to worry about that big bad world out there.

  20. Yay! I'm glad Flip and Bibi have a furever home. They look so much alike, they'll have their new human slaves wondering which is which, which the furbabies can exploit to get lots of nomz. *G*

  21. Thank goodness! A pair is always better (for everyone), and Flip and Bibi have good, rambunctious personalities so maybe they can entertain each other and let Daniel and Rachel get some rest occasionally.

  22. I was secretly hoping Flip & Bibi would go together. They match!

  24. So pleased to hear this news--I am thrilled the two of them are going together. They seem to love each other so much and they look so alike. I'm also thrilled that it looks like Daphne and Franklin will be together forever.

  25. I always tell people to get two cats. I believe they are much happier with a buddy--especially when everyone is gone during the day to work and school.

  26. Thank you, Daniel and Rachel, for adopting both Bibi and Flip together! I know you will be happy with the decision and I know they will be so much happier with a sibling to sleep with and romp around with. I'm surprised Bibi wasn't the kitty who was snapped up first but then she was always my favorite. :)
