A Sheldon and Pearla Dearborn Update!
Carmen, Pearla and Sheldon Dearborn's mama, has always been great about keeping us updated on her kitties. This makes us all happy, I'm sure, because EVERYONE loved those Dearborns!
She sent us over a batch of recent (and hilarious) photos as well as a great update, too.
Here are some quick snaps of the kitties - they are both going awesome! Now that they are 5 (5!!! can you believe they are 5?!?!) you’d think they would have settled down but… not really. :) We still have the serious case of the zoomies most days. Over time their personalities haven’t changed a whole lot - Sheldon is still the lover who wants to be right by you and wants attention while Pearla is a bit more standoffish with people she doesn’t know.
This time of year the cats spend a lot of time flopping around dramatically because it’s too hot out. Pearla will find a shady spot on the hardwoods under a cabinet and Sheldon will disappear - and I honestly don’t know where he goes! They still follow me around the house and “help” with things like laundry and making the bed. As cats do, of course.
While they don’t know many tricks they have learned that they get treats after they get their nails clipped so they will get really excited when the little scissors come out and follow me to the couch to get a pedicure! When their schedules allow, which is most days ;), Pearla stalks the birds at the feeder in the yard from the window and Sheldon destroys those yellow catnip bananas. I buy them in packs of 3 now… he literally eats them over time. And isn’t great at sharing.
I tell people all the time how these guys started life in a wall and here they are, complaining about their kibble being late. They would never be here without all the work you guys do… they don’t know how lucky they are! I look forward to cat-a-thon season coming up - let’s give those next batches the boost they need! If anyone wants to see what’s going on in Sheldon’s head, he (sometimes) does the twitter thing at @dammitsheldon I promise that’s the only swearing involved. ;)
Thank you so much, Carmen! We appreciate you taking the time to share these great photos and stories with us today! Sheldon and Pearla are as adorable as the day we first met them, and still such characters, too!!
Give them some love from all of us, please!
PS Oh my, that last photo of Sheldon -- it looks like he's climbing out of the pool! SO FUNNY! What an expressive little nut he is!!
