Today, Veruca and Violet have gone to the adoption center, hopefully to be adopted by the end of the day (doesn’t hurt to be optimistic, right?).
They were a little nervous in the carrier on the drive to the store, but they didn’t howl, just sat there and periodically looked up at me for reassurance. When we got into the cat room, I let them out to explore while I got their cage ready, and they did okay. They came over to me for petting, but mostly they were interested in what was going on, they were all “Hey, toys!” when they climbed into their cage, and although I got all teary-eyed when it was time for me to leave, they were mostly “Okay, you may go. We have toys!”
I’m so glad that they have each other for company. I’d love it if they went to the same home together, but I know the chances of that aren’t particularly high. Like I said, though, it doesn’t hurt to be an optimist!
Mike and Gus are going to their new home in about a week and a half. I absolutely refuse to talk about that until it happens, though, because I’m terrified of jinxing it and I very much want it to happen! So let’s just say that they’re here for now and when they’re elsewhere, I’ll give y’all the details, okay?
Before I go on to share with you the rest of the Veruca & Violet pictures I’ve taken recently, let us remember what adorable little monkeys they were when they first came to us three months (!) ago:
The Wonkas AND a Cookie. I know the Wonka girls had to be sound asleep when that Cookie crawled into the bed, because I’m fairly certain there’s no way they would have put up with THAT if they were awake.
