Several months back, Parvaneh sent me a note introducing herself and asking about our kittens in residence at the time, the Higgenbottoms.  She was interested in adopting a pair, but all had already been spoken for, so I promised her we would put her at the top of the list, and when the next set arrived, she would get to meet them first.

The Higgenbottoms moved on, and the long wait for a new litter began.  Finally, our Patmores arrived!  I checked back in with Parvaneh to see if she was still looking for kittens. Yes, she was, so once the girls were out of quarantine we had her down for a visit.

When she arrived, all four kittens were asleep in their usual cuddle puddle on the couch, but Mavis woke up and dashed over  to meet her.

Our friendly and outgoing Torbie got picked in an instant.  Selecting the second kitten wasn't as easy.

We sat for an hour while we discussed the possible parings, but when Parvaneh left that afternoon, she hadn't made up her mind. That was fine, she had time to think about it because our next suitors weren't going to be visiting until the following week.

So, she thought about it for a few days.

And when I posted this photo on Instagram, her decision became clear.


Bee would be the one to accompany Mavis.

From this point on, Craig and I began calling them "Beevis".













We're thrilled Team Torbie!  I never try to influence our adopters when they're picking out their kittens, but if I had been given the task of pairing of this set,  I would have put those two together.



I've gotten a couple of updates already, and the girls are doing great. They transitioned quickly into their new home in Seattle with Parvaneh and her sweetie, Mike.  They are happy and comfortable in their new surroundings, and already thriving.

We wish you all the best!  Enjoy your very special Patmores, Parvaneh and Mike!


  1. Congrats to Beevis making the transition to Permanent Home! And to Parvaneh and Mike for increasing their family by two. I see a holiday card from Beevis (hint, hint).

  2. Sad as it is to see them leave, it always brings great happiness to see them go in pairs, at the least. And what an excellent choice and combination!

  3. This is so sweet! Best of luck to Bee and Mavis. I remember also falling in love with that Instagram photo!

  4. Aw, that is one sweet little combo. Happy for the girls, and for their new family.

  5. When kittens fall asleep on their new daddy's lap... <3
