Do you remember Ramona/ Ramón Clover? Well, he has a new baby brother and his name is Ernest Plunkett.
I promised Bernadette, his mama, pick of the Plunkett litter and when she came to visit these dear kittens it was Ernest who caught her eye. He was full of energy that day, just like every other day, and put on quite a show for her. She was looking for a playful kitten to help entertain Ramón, and Ernest certainly fit the bill. His snuggling skills and strong motor helped cinch the deal!
Bernadette had a little traveling to do before she could bring home her Ernest, so his stay was a little longer and we had him here several days after his sisters left. He really made himself part of our family and we enjoyed his last few days with us immensely.
He was allowed to come upstairs and hang out in Charlene and Wylla's world and the girls loved sharing their space with him. They all ran wild and played together. He scaled their cat tower and wrestled with their catnip bananas. We even let him sleep in the bed with us, which is something we rarely ever allow kittens to do, but we didn't want the little guy to be alone, so he joined us. It was a little crowded, but he found a spot on my pillow and slept there most of the nights.
Bernadette came on Monday to pick up Ernest. Of course we before he left we gathered up all of his orange pompons and packed them in a bag.
We were all a little sad to see him go, but it was hardest on Wylla when he left. She kept looking for her little friend and over the next few days you could see she was restless and a little mopey, which is not how she usually behaves after a batch leaves.
She's fine now. We had some holiday houseguests and I put up the Christmas decorations, so things have been pretty interesting around here, so she's been pretty entertained.
Though we miss him, we couldn't possibly be happier for Ernest Plunkett.
You landed yourself a great home, dear boy! Please say hello to Ramón I know you two are going to be so happy together!
