Arrival Story: Pebbles was our third adoption from Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, a non-profit rescue organization. I spotted "Princess Carolyn", who was newly added to the page of available kittens on Safe Haven's website, and I knew it was rare to come across an orange female. She was adorable with her little mustache, playful, and affectionate. I guess I had "that" look on my face again, and my husband begged the volunteers to relocate their fairs to another location where we don't shop, then promptly wrote them a check to cover adoption costs and included a bonus!! We didn't have a carrier with us so they loaned us one and he told them "he" would return it the following week without me. Everyone was laughing of course!!
Bio: Pebbles was named after the redheaded baby daughter of the Flintstones, and is our darling orange and white kitty. Mary, her foster mom, rescued her and her three orange tabby brothers from behind a grocery store. She is a spunky and likes to carry toys around the house in her mouth in the middle of the night. She also likes to maul my head and hair, especially after I've come back from the hair salon.
The mailman came late this afternoon and dropped off some packages on our front porch. Mom brought them inside the house and decided to go in the computer room, which is next to the front porch, to start concentrating on making some Fourth of July pages for us. Huey played really hard today at the dog park so he was crashed on the floor next to her. Riley was sleeping in one of the beds in the computer room. Dad worked today and wasn't home yet.
When Mom finished making our pages, probably an hour later, she walked out of the room and was shocked to see me running into the house from outside! Yep, after the mailman left, she didn't lock the front door properly so it quietly blew open a little.
So then Mom hurries outside and doesn't see any of us out there and then starts going around the house counting cats! Then she started opening cans of food to feed us and that brought all of us out. We were all there!
We have a video camera for the front porch and it's set to send email alerts, so when Mom went and checked her email, there were at least a dozen video clips and she knew they were all going to be of us!
OMC....there were clips of me, Pixie, Nike, and Sofie! We went in and out several times checking things out around the porch and Mom could see that we stepped off the porch but doesn't believe we went much further than that!
Dad just got home and was shocked to hear the story. He was too busy at work to check his email alerts for the video camera.
I guess Riley, Reebok, Joy, Enzo, and Melody missed out on the adventure, but Mom and Dad are just happy we're all home!
We got a coupon in the mail from Petco for 50% off a dog bed, so right away Mom said she was going to use it to get us a new bed. She put it on the desk in our mini-office upstairs, and I was the first cat to check it out. I started out by smelling it and then started kneading on it.
Orvis McSpeedo woke me up to tell me I'm Cat of the Day, and yes, Violet O'Whiner, I sure feel lucky! I'm so excited that I think a couple of new freckles showed up on my nose!
Thank you to everycat for congratulating me today! Your gifts of friendship are much appreciated.
Mom has the day off to do some cleaning and stuff, as grandma will be visiting next weekend, starting on Friday. Funny how that motivates her to clean more but some of our stuff is getting moved around and when that happens we get excited because it makes things seem brand new.
I'm sure grandma will be happy when we check her out and add cat hair to her wardrobe. We'll have to tell you about her visit afterwards, as it's been awhile since she's been here. Wait until she meets the Dood!
Zack and Zoey brought creamsicles for all of us! Enjoy!
