On Saturday afternoon, a little while before I was to leave the house to start Trader Joe on his journey home, I got this news:
And then, an hour later, off went Trader Joe!
Trader Joe is now living in Wisconsin with his mama Lilly. She and her friend drove alllll the way down here to get him, and they got back home to Wisconsin yesterday evening. She’s promised updates, and I feel pretty certain that that boy is going to have a wonderful, pampered life. His new name is Sherman (ADORABLE), and she shared a video on Facebook last night of him playing. He looks SO stressed out (not!), and I’m so glad that they made it home safe and sound. That is some serious driving!
I have an update on Bill! He was one of the True Blood 6, brother to Terry (who was returned last week.)
This is what he looked like as a little guy:
Ann says: November 14 is the 5th anniversary of our adopting BillCat and just want to send an email to update everyone on him…
He is still our crazy little boy who I swear was an acrobat in the circus in a former life! He came through the scary knee surgery [for luxating patella] in December 2012 just fine and even dealt with the confinement months in pretty good spirits and is back to his spunky self! IzzyCat still doesn’t really care for him but we are making it work… He loves to sleep in caves or under the warm lights over the dining table and chase his fishy toys around. And is fond of snuggles and belly rubs too! So happy he came into our lives!
Don’t you just love seeing that sweet face? Thanks for the update, Ann – you know we can’t get enough of ’em!
(These pictures were all taken before PW, Ralph and Catelyn went off to Petsmart, and Trader Joe went off to Wisconsin, obviously.)
Things I love about this picture: PW stretched out in the middle of it all, Winn Dixie nursing on the blanket while Trader Joe uses her as a pillow, and Catelyn over there on the lower right, apparently having an ISSUE with something, judging by the pouty face.
