“Where’s my Mama?”, starring Reacher.

“Is that my Mama? Oh. No, that’s a bird.”

“Is THAT my Mama? Oh. No, that’s the dog who lives next door. Where’s my Mama?”

“My Mama is NOT behind this bucket.”

“My Mama is NOT over in that corner of the yard chattering at squirrels. That’s Corbie.”

“My Mama is not IN the bucket!”

“Dude! She’s not up here!”

“I’ll take a nap while I’m waiting. Then I need to get gussied up in my finest finery!”

“Hm. This seems a little small. Perhaps I’ve gained a little weight since I had my special going-home outfit commissioned!”

“Maybe I need to eat a little and let my super-special going-home vest stretch a bit.”

“I just don’t get this high-fashion nonsense. Is it supposed to fit like this? I guess so…”

“Okay, Mama! I’m ready for you!”

Patience, Reacher-Creature. She’ll be here before the end of the day, weather willing!

I forgot to mention that Reacher and Corbie turned one yesterday. Happy birthday, sweet boys!

  1. I can’t wait to see today’s next entry (or maybe it will be tomorrow…).

    Look at Alice in her royal bed. Oh man.

  2. I’m another one who can’t wait to see the next entry! XD *cuddles the Reacher Creature* What a doll. What a lucky adopter.

    *sneakily sneaks over and carries Corbie off?* Darn. That doesn’t work when you’re attempting a virtual sneak. Oh well. *pets him and Alice* Much love, kitties.

    You know, I never have been able to figure out just which Bookworm is which color. I’m going entirely off descriptions here, and I know one is a silver-grey tabby with white paws, and one is a brown tabby I think? No idea who’s who, or what the other two look like. Clue me in?

    • Chanter, the short story is that Corbie and Rhyme are both brown tabbies, but Rhyme is darker and Corbie has that lovely caramel coloring (before Fred learned their names, he called them “The Light One” and “The Dark One”). Reacher is a silver tabby with white paws. And Buster/Bolitar is a brown tabby with white on his paws and face. The longer story (which is basically the previous descriptions and includes pictures) sounds like something I should do an entry about. 🙂

  3. Gorgeous Reacher! Please give him a big hug and lots of kisses from me before he departs for his new happy home!

    So, do you cry when they are being carried off by their new families? I know I would.

    • I usually don’t cry as they’re being carried off – I cry after they’re gone, and the spots in the house where they usually hang out are empty. The house seems so quiet already with Rhyme gone that I can’t imagine how quiet it’ll be with Reacher gone!

  4. Oh my goodness, too funny…I almost choked on my coffee! This was the perfect post…reminded me of Dr. Seuss’ book “Are you my mother?”! Reacher’s special going home outfit is simply mahvelous, dahling, mahvelous!

  5. Happy belated birthday, baby boys!

    Reacher, I hope your Mama gets there soon. Personally, I’d love to be your Mama, but it’s awfully cold and snowy here in Toronto. Not to mention the resident posse of chubs might have an issue with another kitty in their midst. Although I’m pretty sure if you brought snacks they’d be cool.

  6. Awwww beautiful Reacher!!! Aww your mama is coming soon don’t you worry! Oh wow!! Another Bookworm about to start anew!! Big hugs beautiful Reacher!!! I’m just so glad you are on your way to your very own forever home!! Yay!!

    Is that Daddy’s Girl, aka gorgeous Alice!??! Hello!!! *waving*! 🙂 Take care

  7. Fair well and Goodluck Reacher man. Do you suppose they’ll change his name? But Reacher is so cool! Is my Bolitar-Buster called something else now?
    Oh, and it’s a good thing that Her Majesty, Alice, is not a possesive kinda girl. You’ll have to find somehwere else to sleep, Robyn.

    • She says she’s not planning to change his name, so Reacher he’ll remain. I don’t know what Buster’s new name is (I’m assuming they renamed him. Pity, because he was SUCH a Buster!)

      Funny thing is, Princess Alice sleeps with ME!

  8. Thank you so much for linking to the Goathouse page! They do great work for kitties and I know they appreciate spreading the word.

    Congrats to Reacher! And I’m glad to hear that you and Fred decided to adopt Alice!

    It’s been informative to hear about the process of diagnosing Alice’s respiratory problems – a friend of mine is fostering a kitty who has a chronic wheezing problem that vets haven’t been able to figure out. She acts just like a normal kitty (playful, peppy, friendly) and doesn’t seem impeded by it, but she’s occasionally wheezy and sneezy. She had been on a couple rounds of antibiotics at the refuge before my friend took her home, and it’s been going on for several months, so the vet doesn’t believe she has an infection either viral or bacterial. I wonder if her problem might be similar to Alice’s. Anyway, I know Alice is going to have a fabulous and loving home with you guys, and I hope she prospers!
