The only thing better than a purring kitten is two purring kittens. Since Chamois’ passing two months ago, I have felt bad leaving Chloe home alone all day. She seemed so lost when I got home after work. I’ve been thinking about adopting two young cats, preferably littermates, to keep each other and Chloe company. I wanted two, because Chloe is already 18 and when she passes, I’d like the two younger cats to have each other.
So a week ago, I finally did it. I adopted the perfect pair, Sophie and Madison, from the Irvine Animal Shelter. They are 7-month-old littermates and so bonded together that the shelter wanted to adopt them out to the same home. As soon as I brought them into my house, before I even opened the carrier, they began to purr. They were home and they seemed to know it.
I brought them to their own room furnished with water, food bowls and a litterbox, which they immediately began to explore. It’s fun having kittens again. I know it will be a big adjustment for Chloe. I am going to have to be patient and follow some good advice on cat introductions
I look forward to the day when the three of them will be happy and purring together.
Littermates Sophie and Madison are perfectly content in their new home with CAT FANCY Editor Susan Logan and her cat Chloe.
