I think you'll all be happy to know that I got a little update on our Lumpkins. Marguerite at the Humane Society spoke with their caretaker, Twila, and gave me the scoop.
Stewart Lumpkin and one of his sisters, I'm not sure which one, were successfully treated for ring worm and were adopted recently. Twila is as fussy as we are when it comes to finding homes for her kittens, and said they were adopted by some very good people. One adopter came all the way from Oregon to get their kitty! The last Lumpkin girl was still testing positive for ring worm and had a patch on her toe that wouldn't clear up. Things are better now, and she has a potential adopter coming to meet her this weekend.
The Lumpkins were about six weeks old when they left us in November, which means they're almost six months old now. It's been a long road for them and I'm so happy to know they're all doing better and starting their new lives with their adopting families. I'm so grateful to Twila for seeing them through this!
So, when will we have kittens again? We're not ready, and it's still not safe for us to bring kittens into our home. I know you all are itching for more babies, but we're just not there yet. Someday I'll tell the whole tale, but the ringworm saga was kind of a nightmare. Though I've missed having kittens around here, because of what we went through, I haven't been eager to jump back in.
Thanks for your patience through this kitten-less period. I love this faithful community of ours, and appreciate your devotion! Thank you for coming by each day, seeing what we're up to over here, leaving comments, and sharing your stories. Thank you IBKC Community, you're the best.
