On a bitter cold morning, the meeting was set.
It had taken a while to set the meet-up after the initial contact. In the interim, we looked at other Siamese. After waiting nearly four weeks, the meeting was on. Since she was still a baby kitten, we asked Rob if he had another, like a tabby, available. If he did, we would take both.
Pinky and Susie (Dec 21 2011)
We met Rob, a foster with Colorado 9Lives, at the PetSmart where they hold their weekly adoption fairs. Inside the kennel area, Rob talked cats, his, ours, and the six fosters he and his wife were overseeing. He introduced us to Susie, then Pinky and lastly Sammy. Rob said Susie and Pinky, littermates, played with each other. I said we’d take both. It made sense to have both. If they belonged to a trio, we would’ve likely brought the trio home.
After adjusting by themselves for a few days, they were ready on their fourth day to mix with Egypt and the Musketeers. The hiss and growl factor was a non-factor. Susie and Pinky explored, played, napped, slept.
Pinky (Oct 2018)
Susie (Oct 2018)
The seven years have slipped by all too quickly. It seems like it has only been weeks. They have grown up so nicely. Susie has become a lovebug; Pinky, the likely #1 cat.
We thank Colorado 9Lives for keeping our babies safe.
