Our Family Has Expanded by Two

Like many people, to keep ourselves organized, we use a calendar with cat painting pictures on them.  Last year there was a particularly cute painting of two kittens, one grey and white stripped and the other one was an orangish color.  Mom really liked that picture of the two kittens so she cut it out, you know the type of cutting out, she cut around the edge of the two kittens.  I didn't know she had done this but one day she pinned them up on the window valance right by her bed.  And that little cut-out is still there.

Cut-out from calendar pinned to valance.

Towards the end of January, in Yuma, we went to PetSmart to check out the kittens up for adoption from the Yuma Humane Society.  They didn't have any that day, saturday, but the gal said that two young cats were being fostered in the same home and they were coming in on sunday.  So home we went and went back the next day and the cats weren't there, and a different lady didn't know anything about it.  So home we went again, not even knowing anything about either kitten.  We waited two days before going back, because at that time we were parked about 20 miles outside of town and were getting tired of all that driving, in the Honda.

So tuesday we went back and the kittens were there, in fact they had come in on sunday afternoon, just like the first girl had said.  She took us into the 'meet and greet' area and brought the two kittens out for us to see.  We went in with the intention of adopting one cat but fell in love with both of them.  We really didn't want to split them us as they both had been in the humane system since august and september of last year.

So off we went with two young cats.  It was about a week or more after that, that I looked up and saw that picture of the two kittens mom had cut out of the calendar and pinned to the valance, and guess what?  Our two new kittens look almost exactly like the picture.  Our young orange male has the same unusual marking as the orange kitten in the picture.

Meet Bubba, orange, and Sissy, grey and white.

We are blessed.  These two are great travelers and have adjusted to living in the rv so nicely.

Play time.

    It probably hasn't escaped your notice that you and Joy created a kitten vision board. :oD

  2. Such willed that one!
    Love you girls, and miss you!

  3. Great story. I once bought a card with a black cat and told my husband it was the "perfect' cat. One week later that cat showed up at our door one cold night with an injury. We had her for 18 years.

  4. Thank you for adopting them together and not splitting them up. I travel with 5 kitties. They're good companions and enjoy traveling. I don't know what I'd do without my babies.
