Former foster(s) update!
If you were reading back in 2010 (and at this point, even if you weren’t), you remember Reacher, the gorgeous silver tabby. He was from the Bookworms litter, the same litter as Corbie. Here are a couple of pictures to remind you what he looked like then.
And if you were reading in 2012 (or even if you weren’t), you remember Mr. Stripey, the sweet orange kitten who came to us with his mother, Brandywine, and what seemed like 7,000 boy kittens who were WILD and drove their poor mama crazy, the litter known as the ‘Maters. Here are a couple of pictures to remind you of what Mr. Stripey looked like then.
Kathy adopted Reacher when he was about a year old. It was a rough transition for him – he turned pretty feral for a while there – and I will be forever grateful that she gave him so much time and love, to help him adapt.
Mr. Stripey and his brother Sungold were adopted together when they were about 9 months old. Unfortunately, the adoption didn’t work out, and some months later they were returned. They stayed at the shelter, in the cat room. Sungold unexpectedly passed away in his sleep in late 2014, leaving his brother behind. When Mr. Stripey had been back at the shelter for a solid year, Kathy came and adopted him!
His addition to the household went a WHOLE lot more smoothly than Reacher’s did. Mr. Stripey is now named Gladstone, and he and Reacher are BFFs!
Don’t you just LOVE a happy ending? (Thanks, Kathy, for letting me steal and post this picture!)
I weighed the Swimmers and the Squash Bugs over the weekend. At the top of the weight chart: Zuke (3 pounds, 2 ounces) and Phelps (3 pounds, 1 ounce). At the bottom: Pattypan and Torres (2 pounds, 7 ounces). They grow so fast!

A certain loony someone does NOT like it when I get the camera out, and in fact now will go running if he hears me turn the camera on. BRAT. Clearly I need to start bribing him with treats to get him to pose for me.
