For many, many years Beth and Steve shared their lives with a tightly bonded pair of sibling cats, Fidel and Grace. This special pair lived well into their late teens and brought much joy to their humans, but sadly both passed within the past couple of years.
Like all of us who experience this kind of loss, though your heart feels empty, you need a little time to heal before your open it up again.
So, Beth and Steve waited, and when they felt ready, they began their search for a pair of kittens.
Mavis and Belinda had already been claimed when Beth and Steve came down for their "meet and greet". They were very happy to know that Genevieve, the first Patmore that caught their eye, was still available. They had been admiring Thea's fabulous belly spots, so they were equality thrilled to know she was available, too.
We had a very nice visit that afternoon. All the Patmores enjoyed meeting our guests and were happy to receive lots of love and attention from them.
Here's sweet Thea feeling safe in Steve's hands.
A few minutes into our meeting, Charlene came into the living room to say hello. Normally, she keeps a safe distance from strangers, but much to my surprise, she jumped right up on the couch and joined the Patmores and their visitors! And then she climbed onto Beth's lap where she sat for minutes. THIS NEVER HAPPENS!
I knew they were good kitty people already, but Bean certainly confirmed this!!!! Folks, getting the Butterbean Seal of Approval™ is something that never comes quickly -- it takes time, and the list of recipients is short!
So, yes. Genevieve and Theodora were adopted by these fine humans and are living the good life in Seattle. Just like their sisters, they adjusted quickly and made themselves right at home.
Beth and Steve, we wish you all many good years to come with these dear girls. I know they'll bring you many laughs, much joy and love! Enjoy these special kittens!!!
