My favourite word when it comes to foster cats. (When it comes to computers — or my rage-inducing cable provider — not so much. 😉 )
Mickey — now “Whisper” — and Fudge are doing GREAT! They even have a canine brother who they get along with (thanks Bella for showing them dogs can be nice!). Here’s the word from their adopter:
We changed Mickey’s name to Whisper and he is great at responding to it already. I will now refer to him as Whisper.
Fudge was so timid at [the store] and while he hid for a few hours over the first two days that he was here, he doesn’t hide anymore. He is more confident here and while he and Whisper still love to snuggle, play and spend time together, Fudge doesn’t seem dependent on Whisper anymore. He will greet us in the morning by himself if Whisper is still sleeping. And Fudge *loves* to talk! He is always saying something to us. He also loves sitting in the front window so he can watch the squirrels. And despite what one of the photos depicts, Fudge has not developed a drinking problem.
Whisper is exactly the same as he was at [the store]. He is just the sweetest little cat. He is very affectionate and enjoys being with us. He is always interested in seeing what we’re doing and is usually nearby.
They both love to play with toys and they play wrestle with each other several times each day so they are both happy and active.
They also both get along with our dog, Mocha, although they are all still trying to figure out their boundaries. They (Whisper, in particular) have taken over the big dog bed. But sometimes Whisper will let Mocha lie on it with him.
Overall, Whisper and Fudge are doing fantastic and we are so happy to have them in our family!
Happy Tails, indeed!
BONUS: a wee update on Elijah:
He is such a happy kitty and so full of life! He is adjusting so well and so is our kitty Lynk. He is now getting up and down the stairs with almost no issues! … We have named him Tippy due to him tipping over and being wobbly lol We love him he’s super sweet!
