A Couple of Gibson Kittens

If you were around for last year's fundraiser, you would have seen these two answering the phones and raising squillions.  They are Pheona and Sherman Gibson, who now go by Fiona and Gustav.

Sometimes kitties change tremendously as they grow, and sometimes they just grow up to be larger versions of their former kitty selves.  These two fall into the latter category.

See for yourself...

Here's what Erika, their mama, had to say..

Our little ones are doing fantastic - we actually decided they were the best decision of 2012! They really do bring so much joy to our lives. Gustav (who we call Goose) is the biggest cuddle bug and purr monster you'll ever meet. He lives for belly, head and ear rubs - always wiggling his way under our hands. 

Fiona (or Fifi) is still an adorable little mischief - always trying to sneak outside or into a closet where she doesn't belong. But after she burns herself out, she's ready to join the snuggle party too. I thought they might grow out of cuddling together, but we find them side-by-side or in a random box together fairly regularly. They were a perfect match - both for each other and for our family. It's like we hit the kitty lottery with these two :) Thanks for taking care of them when they were wee ones!


Thanks for the update, Erika!  I think you picked the right pair.  Clearly, they are happy together and happy with you and Joe!

Hooray for another awesome IBKC success story!!

  2. Fiona's eyes are so HUGE and gorgeous! I love her eyeliner! They're both lovely furbabies and I just want to huggle them both right up and listen to them purr.

    SHERMAN! Oh I loved him last year (he looked so much like my much-missed old boy did as a kitten) and to see him now is like seeing my old boy as he was in adulthood.
    It's lovely to see them both so happy in their new lives and happy with each other. What a sweet pair!

  6. Adorable pictures, I love how the itty bitty poses match the grown-up poses. Another wonderful story of these cute babies finding fantastic forever homes! Love this place!!!

  7. It is interesting how some kitties keep their kitten-selves as they mature.

    Fiona and Gustav are lovely and loving, a perfect update.

  9. Oh, I forgot about these two! I was so in love with Sherman last year. I think his face is the cutest ever and his sister is gorgeous as well. I loved seeing all these alum updates this week! Truly special. Each day was a treat. And...happy 6 month birthday Wylla!

  11. Yay! Love my little furbabies :) You hit the nail on the head about growing into bigger versions of their kitten selves!
