We played Match Maker this summer!
On two occasions we had the happy opportunity to find kittens for humans in need.
Early this summer, DP's brother and sister-in-law were ready to open their hearts to a new beginning after their 14 year old calico passed away last winter. They were hoping for another calico and we convinced them to get two so they'd have each other.
DP searched and searched until finally she found a tortico and her sister. When asked if they'd be okay with that coloring they replied, "You know we're going to love any of them to pieces!" Good answer!
So here is Gracie and Lily who were born in Maine and now live in New Hampshire.
Then my boss's Silver Bangal had an unexpected batch of kittens. Unexpected because this is her second litter this year!
Here is Bella with her six kittens.
We have some friends who have two male cats. One is a 16 year old named Cyrus and the other is a rambunctious 3 year old name Sushi looking to play a lot more often than his elder sibling can deal with. So these smart humans decided to get Sushi a playmate of his own. We suggested a girl might be in order and told them of my boss's kittens. Bella hadn't even had the kittens yet and our friends agreed they'd wait to get one from Bella's litter.
We visited the kittens at three weeks and took lots of pictures to show our friends who live a couple hours away. Which kitten would they choose? Luckily, Bella had 5 girls and one boy.
The kittens were well socialized and handled a lot by sticky ones.
These two girls are twins.
A couple weeks later, our friends came up for a visit to pick out their own kitten, but when they saw them all, they couldn't decide which one so they got TWO!
Meet Lily and Maizy, the twins!
There are three kittens left, if anyone is interested!
All girls are settled in and happy in their new homes with loving, doting humans to attend their every need.
Life is Good!
