Arrival Story: My fiance is a truck driver. While he's away during the week, it gets really lonely here at home. I went to the pet shops looking for a companion. When I walked into the Petsmart and up to the adoption center for the SPCA, there was Angel. She looked up and right into my eyes like "There you are, where have you been and what took you so long?". I went in to see her up close and it was love at first sight. I filled out an application for her and went back to see her the following day as well. I was told that other people had applied for her and then changed their minds for one reason or another; but I couldn't look at her sweet face and not want to give her the best home and love ever. I think one reason so many changed their minds was due to the fact that Angel needs to have her anal glands expressed every couple of months.
Bio: Her owner had died some months before. I found out during one phone call that she also had a sister who needed a home. The lady I was talking to gave me Angel's sister's foster mom's number. I called Mary and she told me that no one else even knew about Hooper but that Thelma (SPCA) preferred that they stayed together. They aren't from the same litter, but they are sister. They were raised together for 9 yrs. I went to see Hooper as well and fell in love with her also. Now I have two new little girls to love in my life. Two companions instead of one..double the love!
Sorry we have been away for so long, but our mommy lost one ofher dearest friends and has been dealing with that and some other stuff. We're both doing very well now in our new home. We don't hide like we used to. We're eati ng very well and we both sleep with mommy every night. We were introduced to the other cats upstairs the other night. There were no fights, but we are aware that there is a 'pecking' order here. Hooper wandered around checking stuff out the entire time. I investigated a few things and then decided laying next to mommy was the best option. Mommy is also finding out that I will eat just about anything she puts in front of me, while my sister hooper is very finicky.
Today was much more progressive. I'm letting mommy hold me some now without getting so touchy about it. I've been out exploring more. Mommy also bought us more presents! We got a pam pur salon, a kitty playhouse which I love, but Hooper just seems to be ignoring right now, and a new toy that bobs and spins and light up! Mommy also found out that I like the second shelf on her little night table, so she converted it into a cat tower for us! Our little cat bed is on top and a fleece blanket is folded up on the bottom level. She definitely makes me feel like the princess I am, but I will still have to keep her and everyone else in line here...purrrrrr...:D
My sister and I are getting settled in pretty quickly with our new home. We both fell alseep last night on the bed with mommy. We're not being a hissy with each other now either. In fact, we have even laid on mommy's bed together a few times. Mommy made us both a new collar. Mine is purple with a gold bow in back to match Hooper's collar, and Hooper's is gold with a purple bow in back to match mine..:). Mommy made them as break-away collars in case we get snagged on anything. We had a nice breakfast this morning and our brushing. Afterwards, we finally got to go exploring into the rest of our new apt. home. Hooper is so much braver than I am. She went out and made the rounds first and then came back and sat beside mommy's bed where I was at to tell me it was okay. I finally made my way out and wound up getting under the tub in the bathroom where it hasn't been completely closed in yet. Mommy got me out with some coaxing and we all went back to the bedroom to recoup and feel safe. Mommy's room is our safe haven and we know it...:) I wonder what will be on the agenda for tomorrow...perhaps more exploring!
