With Mydnight's departure to her new home this week, we are now entering a change of times for kittehpile!
Ash and Smirk remain with us and are in the process of becoming Guenthers. Smirk attached himself to us early on and let us know that he wanted to stay with us and we caved. Ash, originally had a home to go to but as I believe I informed you, due to allergies, that fell through. We haven't received any further inquiries about him and he has taken Smirk's path of twisting us around his little paw. They are two of the sweetest and biggest cuddle monsters ever so we have caved and are in the process of teaching them to be permanent Guenthers.
We took a vacation recently and had a cat sitter in to look after them. That seemed to be exactly what was in order for the kittens and older cats to come to an understanding when the humans were away. They appear to have sorted out their problems and we came home to a much happier and cohesive household. The kittens and older cats are co-existing & interacting with one another more rather than keeping distance from one another.
The last few months have been both trying at times to also being extremely emotionally rewarding. Clousette and 4 of her 6 kittens have all been adopted out now so we have achieved our mission; seeing them find loving, forever homes.
Therefore, kittehpile will now be taking a slight change for the times. It will still feature updates on Ash and Smirk (as well as any other updates I get about the others' from their new parents) but it will now also expand to include our 3 adult cats. Cosmo - our 6 1/2 year old orange tabby grumpy but cuddly boy. Piccolo - our 3 1/2 year old blue russian proximity girl. Tasha - our ~ 2 year old orange tabby girl stray rescue from earlier this year. They all have distinct and amusing personalities and quirks so hopefully you will still continue to enjoy following them along with the kittens as they grow up.
