But first, a weekend update...
FROSTY GOT ADOPTED ON SATURDAY!!!
Our sweet Frosty went to his forever home on Saturday afternoon. It was absolutely a match made in heaven. His new mom and dad have two boy kitties, a 16-year-old and an 8 year-old. They are very lonely after losing the 16-year-old's litter mate and needed a bit of spunky sweetness around the house.
After ignoring several potential adopters on Saturday, Frosty trotted right over to his new mom and dad, curled up in their arms, and purred like a loon. He nuzzled and kneaded and told them how much he needed them. He climbed onto his new dad's shoulder and perched there like a purring parrot until the paperwork was completed.
It's always satisfying to make an adoption connection, but this one was extra special. They so obviously chose each other. Happy life sweet boy. I know it will be.
We have lots of room at the store since both of our new boys have been adopted. We also have need of a quarantine room for Abby's upcoming surgery on Thursday (update... she's doing fabulously and improving daily!).
The current plan is for Lincoln and Zelda to move to the store on Wednesday, with Chanel hanging out with Ruby for a couple of days until she can officially be adopted next weekend (she met a throng of admirers this past weekend and I imagine she will not be around much after we give the green light). I hate to think about them going, but it is past Lincoln's turn and Zelda attracted a lot of attention this weekend.
I'm just going to hug them a lot for the next few days...
Did someone request a Ruby-Chanel meeting? Why yes... I believe someone did.
Ruby: "Wait a minute... WHO are YOU?"
Charlie: "Double Sniff..."
Ruby: "This thing smells suspiciously like a baby kitten."
Charlie: "It smells like kitten! It smells like kitten!"
Ruby: "Sigh... RUBY is supposed to be the baby!"
Ruby: "Go away kid. RUBY is the baby in these parts."
Chanel: "That's what YOU think.
The Lady over there wants a picture of the two of us.

Ruby: "Ruby said cheese and played nice.
Now GET OUT OF HERE!"
Chanel: "Golly, what made HER so cranky?
Chanel can't help being teenier, tinier, and cuter, you know."
I love you, Ruby Ruby Roo.
You're the teeniest, tiniest, and cutest permanent resident.
