I met Jaimie a few years ago while doing an interview in our home for a video podcast. She did our makeup, and I enjoyed visiting with her during that day.
She's sweet and kind, so when she emailed to reintroduce herself and tell me that she and her sweetie Ben were looking to expand their kitty family, I was very happy to hear from her.
I told her about our Kibblesmiths, and she was excited to make a date to meet the girls.
The Kibblesmiths are quite charming and "show well". They're always eager to make friends with anyone who passes through our door, so I was feeling pretty confident that at least one the girls would be claimed that night.
All three were delightful during the visit, but Sweet Evie was the one that caught their attention first. They loved her cute tabby stripes and squinty eye. Jaimie scooped her up in her arms, and Evie seemed so at ease. They got to see her sweet, lovey-dovey side, then Jaimie put her down and they got to see the little firecracker she is, too. She really is the perfect balance of dear thing and crazy kitten, and it was quickly decided that she was the one.
Craig came into the living room while we were all visiting and I told him that Sweet Evie had been picked. This came as no surprise to Craig who said "of course, she's the obvious choice".
It was obvious. They were all in love.
Jaimie emailed and it sounds like things are going well:
The little fighter is doing great! She has already tried to take on both of our other cats! She is fearless and I adore her for it. We renamed her “Valeria” after a warrior queen in a comic I grew up with. She is so tiny and has so much energy right now that it’s like living with a little squirrel! She likes to do kitten parkour on the bed when we are sleeping. I would be grumpy about it if she wasn’t made of so much joy!
Thank you so much for adopting our sweet little squirrel, Jaimie and Ben! You got yourself a very special kitten, and wish you all a long and happy life together!
