Hello, Pettibones!

If you've been following the IBKC for awhile, there's no doubt you remember the Pettibones. They were dear, sweet things and the litter was such a lovely mix of colors and personalities.

Agnes and Henry (formerly Carmine) were adopted by Victoria and Ian.  We've stayed in contact over the years,  and I can see these kittens are their pride and joy.

Here's little Agnes.


And here's little Henry.  Please note his tiny mohawk.

Here's a little bit about the Agnes of today.

Agnes such a sweetheart. When she's not napping, she's busy watching shadows, bird watching and chasing her brother at high speeds around the house. She is mostly shy when there are visitors but she always comes out to flirt with some of her favorite boyfriends. She is a very chatty girl, who enjoys playing games for cats on the iPad, offering up her belly for pets and we think she can tell time, especially around breakfast and dinner time. She loves giving a good hand bath and still doles out little vampire bites.

And here's  is a little bit about Henry.

 Henry has three settings; mischievous, love bug and sound asleep. All three are done with gusto. He lives to jump high in the air and catch (yes, catch) ping pong and sparkle balls. He enjoys enticing his sister into a game of chase and loves being playfully naughty. Henry loves to show off, banking off the furniture or pulling a Scooby-Doo (bunching up an area rug during a spazz-out). He still makes chirping noises when walking around and he puts us to bed and wakes us up every day with head bonks and purrs. He is always in the middle of everything. He is lovely! 

 Thank you for sharing, Victoria!  What a great update! Clearly, these kittens are lovely and well-loved.

To keep this ball rolling, please pop on over to our FUNdraising page, and make a tax-deductible donation to help cats and kittens find fabulous homes, just like Agnes and Henry did!  

Once we bring in another $500, I'll be back with another alumni update!
