Two of our kittens were adopted yesterday!

Hogan, who is white except for 3 small grayish/black smudges right on the top of his head, went to a very nice family that will relish his high energy.

The Goose, who is solid black except for the white spots on the very tips of 3 toes on one front foot and 2 on the other, went to a couple who will love that he is a snuggler.

This is why I foster.

  1. What fabulous news! I am happy for you, the kittens and the folks who adopted them!
    The hymn on my post today became very special to me during mother's sickness/death - my friend sang it at mama's graveside service. A dear blog friend of mine from Ohio went into hospice yesterday and I thought the words would be especially comforting to her and her 3 grown daughters. I am happy they words were special to you as well.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
