Oh that's lovely to hear your news and how much joy the new kittens are bringing esp as Samps has bonded to them too. We have to see photos of them all
Here are a couple pictures of the whole gang from the spring/summer of this year. Most of them are of Robin & Scamper, as they are the ones that snuggle the most. (Robin being a giant attention hog who NEEDS to cuddle with his family - especially Scamps - while Ammy can be a bit shy when it comes to initiating snuggles with her big sis)
my 2-seater, appropriately named "the kitty couch" (the other 3-seater being "the doggy couch") is one of their favorite spots to gather. (with or without me. lol) pardon the mess.
the kitties share a can of tuna 1-2 times per month as a treat.
Robin, snuggling with his big sister in the kitchen window during a warm summer day.
Robin has a tendency to hog not only attention, but space. he often sits ON his sisters in the most selfish, and presumably uncomfortable way possible.
they do this head thing a lot. it's adorable.
I'm sure you can guess who is who.
Ammy usually only lays with Scamper when it's time for a "kitty pile". And even if Ammy does decide to lay with her big sister for once, it rarely stays a two-some, as Robin just HAS to join in.
Thank you for giving a home to shelter kitties. I hope all continues well with everyone, it sounds like "a match made in heaven".
Thank you. Their introductions were actually one of the easiest I've ever had - which, I suppose, is not too surprising considering how sweet all of my cats are. They all get on VERY well with other cats (although Scamper does take awhile to warm up to them), but you can tell they all have an extra special bond with one another. It is something that Scamper has always wanted, so I can't stop gushing about how happy it makes me that she finally has other cats who are willing to snuggle with her.
This is a "funny how things work out" moment.
About a year ago now we lost the total matriarch of our pride - our much loved Princess Tramp - a hermaphrodite who turned out to be the most maternal of all cats.
When she died so suddenly, we adopted Eve and the tragedy was horrible but having her was wonderful.
I'm so happy there was a silver lining for you and your pride. Losing pets is one of the hardest things you can go through IMO, but I always take some comfort knowing they are at peace, and that I am able to bring another needy animal into my life.
And when we're lucky enough to find an animal that just seems like they were meant to be with our family? It's a truly amazing experience.
