Because something awesome landed in my email box and I need to share it with you!
Yes! I got an update from Effie and Hazel's parents, and I know you're going to want to see how well they're doing, how big they've grown, and how happy they are.
Here you go!!
At this very moment they are running like banshees all around the apartment playing chase and tackle. Their speed has picked up quite a bit over the last 10 weeks.
They seemed to settle in to their new world very easily. I’m sure thanks to you and Wylla and Bean for teaching them the ropes. They are super wild and crazy at times, and super sweet and cuddly when not. We’re into some normal routines and the girls have their favorite toys and places. They are by far the loudest purr-ers I’ve ever heard!
We gave the girls middle names (and they go by nicknames of those): Effie Prudence Brisker (Pru) and Hazel Esmerelda Swift (Ezzie) A bit of a story with the names in that I had these names picked out in my head for years and years. Well before we lost our other two cats. After losing them and time passed and we were feeling like maybe we were ready to have new life in the house, I guess I kind of knew that when I saw Pru and Ezzie I would just know it. And crazy as it is, that’s exactly what happened when I saw the first picture of these two.
They have certainly grown. Effie (Pru) is 5 ¾ lbs and Hazel (Ezzie) is 5 lbs. We still are not very adept at taking pictures but we have attached a couple so you can at least see them. They lost their kitten fluff and have very sleek, shiny coats. Ezzie is even just a bit sparkly somehow. Not that these photos capture it.
Hope all is well in your household.
Warm regards, Patrick & Wendy
Thank you so much for sending this update, Wendy and Patrick. The girls are gorgeous, and so are the photos. It's so great seeing them again and we're so happy you all are so happy together. Clearly, this kittens were meant to be yours!
