Hey! Do you remember these little faces from back in August?
Of course you do, it hasn’t been THAT long. That is ornj floofypants Dexter and his sweet sister Millinocket, who were adopted TOGETHER.
I bet you know what you’re going to see next. That’s right, an update!
Dexter is still Dexter, but Millinocket is now Molly (I love that!), and they are doing fabulously well!
I probably didn’t say this at the time, but I was a little worried about Millinocket when they went to Petsmart because she tends to be a bit reserved and I thought she might not “show” well. Sharon reported that Molly was reserved at first, but by day 3 she was interacting with everyone just fine. (Dexter “doesn’t know a stranger,” which doesn’t surprise me at ALL.) Molly likes to snuggle up with Sharon while she’s working (awww!) and Dexter will eventually show up and snooze atop the climber.
They have an older ornj brother Angus who looks after them, which I think is SO sweet! He loves to wrestle, and Molly wears him out with her wrasslin’ moves. Dexter follows him around and mimics him.
Molly has taken to big sister Smoke – who isn’t sure what to think about THAT – and even got her to wash her head. Speaking of washing, Molly and Dexter are fascinated by the shower. All those baths when they were little!
Thank you for the wonderful update, Sharon!
Ryder, keeping an eye on things. (Ryder is scheduled to be spayed in one week. Please keep your fingers crossed that she doesn’t go into heat before then. She’s got a voice that really carries when she wants it to (she sounds a LOT like Archie), and I SO don’t want to have to suffer through listening to her in heat!)
I went to a paint party at Pinot’s Palette Sunday (it was a Forgotten Felines fundraiser). I didn’t care for my painting – I am NOT a painter! – but had a lot of fun doing it. Kara, however, found my painting QUITE comfy and spent the night snoozing atop it. I sense a new marketing angle for Pinot’s Palette.
PS: In case you missed it at the bottom of yesterday’s post, it’s been TEN years since we adopted Kara! The list of names we were considering for her makes me laugh considering we never changed it and we almost always call her “Mama.”
