Shrimply the Best!
I got the loveliest note from Jessica , who expressed a strong interest in our dear little Louie. She was looking for a second to kitty to love, and a playmate for her handsome orange boy, Bruce.
Until recently, Bruce had a buddy named Purry Kitty to keep him company. Kitty moved out with their roommate, and Bruce was left bored. Jessica hoped Shrimp Louie might be a good kitten to join their family, so she came over to meet him.
The second Jessica arrived, Louie crawled right into her lap for a nap.
While Louie napped, we had a chance to chat, and I got to get to know Louie's new mother a little bit. She's sweet, kind and calm and I know she is going to love and adore this special little fellow.
She's shrimply the best.*
I know everyone expressed hopes of our Small family getting adopted in pairs. Well, that didn't happen. We sent one pair out the door, but two flew solo from our nest. This is fine. Everyone has really great home, and that's what matters most.
We raise very well-socialized kittens who adjust quickly to their new surroundings and merge nicely into homes with other cats. Charlene helps teach them boundaries and manners, so they make very good siblings for blended cat families.
So, please don't ever feel sad for IBKs who leave without a sibling in tow. If there's any loneliness at all, it will be very, very temporary. I never feel one moment of sadness for them. I only feel happy for their wonderful life ahead.
And gratefulness for this incredible stream of fabulous families that find their way to us.
*GROAN! I know. Super corny, yes, but I've been saving that one for awhile, and this being Louie's last post, I had no choice but to use it now. My apologies.
