Hello all, I have happy news to share!
Last week we welcomed home a lovely little kitty who is 8 months old. We named him Finn (although he is often called Finley):
When I saw this photo on ARF's website, it was love...! He was called Peter but we have re-named him Finn.
I was feeling rather blue over Christmas as I missed having a cat in the house for the second Christmas in a row. While I still miss my last wonderful cat (Biscuit) terribly, I realized I was finally ready to have a new kitty in the house.
Thank You ARF
Finn was adopted from ARF, the Animal Rescue Foundation, here in Calgary. They rescue animals from rural areas around the city, in particular from the Tsuu T'ina Indian reserve (where Finn came from). All their animals are fostered out to wonderful families, so we went to visit Finn at his foster home. I knew he was our cat from the second I saw him. He looked like a little fox and had such a sweet disposition! We got to bring him home a week later.
Finn was the last of his litter to be adopted as he had a problem with his back legs that they were watching. His back legs have shorter tendons and so he walks a little pigeon-toed, but he loves to run and jump and it hasn't slowed him down a bit!
Finn is such a wonderful cat. He is loving and sweet and funny and never in a bad mood.
He meowed a little bit the first day as he missed his foster sister kitty and dog. Here he is meowing the first day:
But within the first hour he explored the whole house. He is super friendly and confident.
But before we knew it, he was in love with us and we are now inseparable. He follows me everywhere. Here he is sleeping on me last night:
Hope you are all well. I still have to post the second half of our honeymoon and dying to get back to the blog. I have so much to talk about, but I've been laid up with bad headaches and some house projects needing my attention, so I've been neglecting the blog.
I hope you're all well and I miss you!
More very soon, xo Terri
