Throw Back Thursday: Pattypan.
This time last year, we were flooded with kittens – 10 of them, if I’m counting correctly (actually, no – a year ago is when I introduced Combo, so we had ELEVEN fosters in the house). One of those 10 was this little muffin right here:
That, of course, is Pattypan. She (and her brother Zucchini (Zuke), and their sisters Calabash and Ambercup) came to us as bottle babies. Pattypan developed an abscess, and had to have her arm wrapped up – which made everyone feel sorry for her and love her that much more.
Having her leg in a bandage did NOT slow that girl down at ALL – and it just added to her sass.
She eventually healed up, and we were able to stop wrapping her leg, and she grew into a beautiful girl.
And here she is – her name is now Peanut, and she is clearly one spoiled girl.
Kim says: I haven’t sent you a picture in awhile. Peanut is growing so much. Can’t believe she is already a year old. This pictures shows her trying her best to get my son’s milkshake. This is his cat (I think we are all attached to her) and Peanut definitely loves him. She meows every time he walks in the room.
Don’t you just love a happy ending?
Thank you so much, Kim, for the update and allowing me to share!
In the laundry room, there are cabinets over the washer and dryer. Every once in a while – not often at all – Kara/Sheriff Mama will jump up there and hang out. I’ve never seen any of the other cats up there (maybe they can’t make the jump), and I’ve never figured out what makes Kara decide it’s time to hang out up there. ‘Tis a mystery.
