Forever Homes

The reports coming from Lexi's new home have been good ones.  She is settling in and doing well.  I got a text message from "Val" on Sunday that said, "All is terrrific!  We had a small family fathering and Lexi was the star! -- I'd not mentioned to them that I thought that Lexi should be in a place where she was the "star," so when he said that she was, I took that as sign.
Val's message continued by his saying, "Lexi gets long famously with her new brothers, and sleeps in our bedroom on a new orthopedic bed that she claimed right away.  She is a real love bug and is doing great!  She is confident and keeps up with the boys on walks and romps in the yard and enjoys a nap afterwards.

Val concluded his message with:  It's like she has been here forever!"

Speaking of "forever" it seems like forever that the kittens have been with us and its been just a month.  I didn't mention that a 5th little girl was captured over a week ago. Thought at first by one of my counterparts to be just a random kitten, when I saw her, I knew, she wasn't.  "Star" as I call her, is a nearly perfect "bookend" to one of the original group.  The plan is for ALL these mischievous kittens that all weigh around 2 pounds now, and who have taken over the office to be on their way to their forever homes in about a week.
  Who's going to break the news to Father Charlie?  


  1. That surrogate Dad will be wanting a new family to look after once the kittens have gone. Matching faces. they look adorable.

  2. Um, "Father" Charlie is dreaming. It's hard to rehome these guys and I wish all of them the best.

  3. Were so happy about Lexi fittng into her new home,, just like a piece of puzzle being put where it should be!!

    And the kittens,, a sucess story,,, and all because of caring hearts.

  4. So glad Lexi slipped right into being "Home" where she is the star!

    father charlie.
    break it to him gently kim. he might even need his own little stuffed toy kitty for awhile. :) what a treasure that boy is... his one blue eye and one brown. he's always touched my heart. and now i know why.
    his own heart is grand and good.

  12. That is great news about Lexi! Father Charlie is just adorable!!!

  13. So good to see how well Lexi has settled into her new home and how happy she is. She looks as though she's always been there, and so contented with her two new best pals.
    Poor Charlie, he'll be so sad to see his little babies go, but knowing you Kim, you may well find yourself with some more before too long ! A little stuffed kitten would be a good idea for him, though not so much fun !
    What's happening with cheeky Todd - he's taken a back seat lately.

  14. What is Charlie going to do without his kittens!?! He is going to need some extra tlc which I know he already gets an abundance!
    I know how hard it is for you to let go of one of your babies, so how wonderful to know that Miss Lexi is a star. What a wonderful forever home for her. Does a heart good!!!
