Once I announced on the blog that Royal was still on the market, I got a flood of emails from interested parties. The first was from Mari, and she sounded like the ideal candidate.
She shared a lot about herself and the life she lived with her handsome lilac point siamese mix. She sounded like a sweet person and responsible pet owner, so I got right on the phone and gave her a call.
We chatted for a long time, and then set up a time for her to meet him. The meeting part really was just a formality, she wanted this boy, and I wanted this family for Royal.
So, on Friday evening she came down and scooped up sweet little Royal and off they went.
I've gotten several updates from Mari already, and it's clear she's enchanted by this little prince.
The kitties aren't BFF yet, but each day shows improvements. Royal is happy and comfortable, and I'm sure it won't be too much longer before his big brother to feels the same way. Last night they shared Mari's lap for a nap, which is an excellent sign that things are really progressing.
Charlene enjoyed the time she had with just Royal. She gave him many baths, lots of love, and they had great times chasing each other all over the house.
After he left, you could tell she was exhausted. She took many extra-long naps those first couple days - it's hard for a six-year-old lady to keep up with such a young thing!
We enjoyed having this time with him too, but are so happy he found such a great home! That lucky boy is going to have a very good life. I know Mari will give him the Royal treatment.
