He is currently still hiding in the couples bedroom but has moved from under the bed to under a night stand- which is a bit of relief because he is more visible there than way under the bed.
They have three children and the oldest, the daughter flipped for both the kittens. I took Hobbit with me to keep Bud calm because the last time he went in the carrier, he came home minus his balls. With Hobbit next to him, he seemed a bit more at ease in the truck, but typically anxious and nervous once he was let out in the bathroom. When I went to say goodbye to him, he did venture out of hiding and let me hug me. I really hope it works out, but one thing our house does not have are small children and he will need to adjust to the noise of the 3 year boy as well as a brand new home.
It seems like a really good fit- but only time will tell. The daughter told me she was going to use her puppy dog eyes on her dad really hard so he will let them also adopt Hobbit! LOL I did tell them that Hobbit is probably 2 weeks away from her spay and she can’t go until then. They have another cat that is 2 years old so they wanted a playmate for her.I am praying for the best of all outcomes here for Bud.
ALL the toxic babies are now eating on their own- drinking is another matter but as long as they are eating wet food, we are okay. Hooty is coming home tomorrow. I had hoped they would fall in love with him but he is a biter like his sister Bindle and the bites hurt so I think the allure of him has faded. I was told his mouth is still a bit bloody and his tongue is still blistered. I know they are going to beat him up because he doesn’t smell the same as he did so they won’t know him- but I believe he can hold his own with the rest of them.
We have a new low-cost grocery store in Albany now- Winn-Co so I stopped on the way home and used the adoption donation to buy more baby food for the kittens. I also put my name up to be one of the local charities that they will be helping in the future, But they just opened their doors and they said they would contact us when they start doing donations. Crossing my fingers.
mike is deep in mourning and I am not sure how to help him. Losing both of his cats so close together has been tough for him. I heard him last night crying and I went to him, but what he wanted was just a feline friend so I put Pigeon and Skya on his chair. Pidge jumped down right away, but Sky stayed until morning. I’m going to let Slider out of the bedroom tonight and see how it goes with her. She is a beautiful marbled dilute cow kitty and constantly underfoot when I am in there. My hope is she will adopt Mike for her very own and ease his sense of loss.
