I’ve been incommunicado at a conference the last couple of days.
And y’all didn’t even know she was gone!
I thought Catticus was leaving. There was store space for her at wonderful Jen’s store!! Yay! So Jen made the huge sacrifice to come and
visit the kittens pick up Catticus and take her to the store. I was very sad — despite having come home to this the night before:
And she’d knocked a glass bowl (it didn’t break) and its contents off the coffee table. (I found one thing behind the toilet.) And she broke an earring (I can fix it). And she disappeared an earring (I hope I can find it). And she kept waking me up at 5am to race around me and the covers.
However, there had been a miscommunication somewhere along the line and Catticus needs dental work. So Kelly, one of our volunteer drivers (I like to sing their praises every chance I get) saved Jen a long return trip — who in turn was prepared to save me a long transit ride after a long day — and
visited the kittens brought Catticus back.
Much like at the Volunteer Centre, she quickly made a big impression at the store:
I got to meet Catticus this morning and she is unbelievably sweet! She literally jumped up on my shoulder as soon as i opened her cage and she pretty much draped herself across my chest. What a personality!!! I got her all riled up playing with some toys too. She’s quite tiny so much fun to be with! If you get a chance to pop by the store to visit her this afternoon I strongly recommend it. Cats like her don’t come around too often.

Kelly, the driver, had already met her when she was picking up a cat from the Volunteer Centre. She’d take her home in a heartbeat but her mean husband has put a three cat limit on the household. 😉
So my sweet girl is back and now the resident cats are sad. 🙂 She’ll be here for a little while longer; long enough to have her dental work done and recover from that. Then, maybe back to the store.
