Rumba and Samba were two sisters who came to stay with us on January 21, 2009. They’d been in a foster home, but their foster parents were going away for a few days, and since our previous fosters were going to the pet store, I was more than happy to bring them home.
They were extremely skittish at first, so I spent a lot of time hanging out in the foster kitten room with them, just sitting there and reading, and soon enough they started to come around. By the time they went to the pet store on March 6th, they would come and ask to be petted (especially Rumba), and had the run of the house.
You can read about these guys beginning with this entry (there are links at the top of each entry; click on the one on the right to take you to the next one).
You can see all the pictures I took of Samba and Rumba over at Flickr.
As of March 21, 2009, Rumba and Samba had both been adopted!
