          Not all of them, of course - we already have five woozles and a pootie - but Tom, the pootie, has been qwfully lonely since May 2, the day we had to do the final kindness for his brother Huck (Pest), from whom he had never been separated. They were littermates, adopted togwther, and now Tom's a lonesome kitty. We think he'll react more kindly to kittens than he would to a grown pootie, so we're going back to the Humane Society where we adopted him and his brother to adopt another pair of siblings to kwep him and us and the five woozles company. We figure kittens will be more likely to adapt well to having five friendly woozles around, too.

            I thought one of my pooties, Schyler was lonely after Chelsea passed, but alas, she never forgave me for getting Chasie--she hated him--poor guy--he was such a sweetheart.  I miss him so much.  I can't have pooties with my Maggie--she was a kennel dog and has a very strong prey drive--sigh!

            •  We brought home two adults (0+ / 0-)

              Spayed females with very different histories who hadn't met beforehand. Now the house is in an uproar for a little while. Tom and owner-surrendered Georgia, age 2, seem to have quickly reached at least mutual tolerance. The 1 year old, if that, stray that I named Vyonne has had a very rough life. She acts in several ways like a feral cat, including the definitive feral crouch and lack of kittenish behaviors, and she was spayed only three days before we got her, in what our vet identified as a very late-term abortion. She is determined to be dominant cat and Tom, three times her size, gives way and doesn't have any intention of fighting her. These two may or may not reconcile, especially when 7-pound Vyonne runs at Tom to attack him before I can get the squirt bottle into my hand.

              Georgia is a sweetie and loves to be petted. She comes when we call her name at least some of the time. Vyonne purrs loudly, meows a lot (the vet says she's part Siamese), and talks with her mouth full, which sounds for all the world like "nom nom nom". She loves to be close to her people and so far, is unafraid of vastly larger dogs, although she has yet to be formally introduced to rambunctious Raven.
