GOTCHA DAY FOR THE GIRLS! and Opt to Adopt Blog Hop

I can't believe it's been a whole year since we drove to Illinois to get Leo's sisters from Chrystal!! Boy did that year go fast!

After they were returned in bad shape from a failed attempt at adoption, I couldn't bear it, I had to make sure their next home was their last, and that it was a good one! So we packed up for another eight hour trip and went after our sweet little girls! Ok, big girls!

We had gotten Leo three years before and he is my sweetie pie, my heart cat, my loving little boy. At the time, Star was still with us and she was not happy about Leo, and double not happy about the girls arrival! But she hated the girls less than she hated Leo, so it was some kind of progress anyway.

Chrystal warned us to expect the girls to take some time to settle in, after all they'd been through it would take them time to trust. I think the eight hour ride back home helped me and Cashmere bond though. Glitter was sick the whole way and I tried to comfort her without pressing her too much. But Cashmere leaned into my hands through the cage, soaking up all the attention I could give her.

Once we got home, Glitter was much better and showed herself to be a big cuddle bug, even if she only allowed pets and loving when all four of her feet were on the ground. Cashmere enjoyed scritches but yes, she would run if she got spooked.

A year later and the girls are both big cuddle bugs! They want pets from anyone who comes into the house and they greet everyone like wonderful little hostesses! Glitter is still not a lap cat, but she loves to sit next to people who will pet her. Cashmere will lap sit, but really prefers to sit behind or beside people. Do you know how hard it is to sit back when a kitty insists on sitting behind you? hee hee

We couldn't be happier with our sweet Winnie's Wish kitties! All three of them!

This is Leo on the left, Cashmere in the middle and Glitter on the right.

Happy Gotcha day, my sweet girls! I'm so glad we reunited you with your brother Leo, and that you all get along so well! You make us so happy and fill our house with love!
