1st day



They have been running around for first hour that I introduced them to my home. The litter box was a great hit. I think because it is fresh and all their own. 

The drive home was interesting.

Prisoner Enid: *Rattling cup on bars* Let me out. I will never see Johnny Cash in Folsom if you don't let me out.
Prisoner Hester: *Wakes up from nap* Would you SHUT UP! I am sleeping here. The warden said if we took a nap, the trip to our new home would go a lot faster.
Prisoner Enid: I'm gonna die in here. Die, I say. Die. Let me out.
Prisoner Hester: Oh, for the love of God. *Snakes paw out of cell to grab warden's hand and places it on Enid's head.
Prisoner Enid" Oh. That feels nice. *Mumbles quietly" I still want out.

Once out of the prison of the cat carrier it was all *OMG! Toys. Litter box. Curtains. Food. Water (Achoo - water up my nose!) Toys., etc. Running over everything and who could make it to the litter box and back again the fastest. Now they have climbed on to me.

Pause for nap. I am back again. I think I went cross-eyed with love. They curled up under my chin on either side before taking their nap. Enid thought my nose needed some cleaning before snuggling in and Hester just rolled over on my glasses. My eyes glazed over and I fell asleep. I later then picked them up and put them into my bed so I could get some work done. The picture above is the girls waiting for me to come to bed.

  6. Oh! *melts*


    ...it must have taken a lot of willpower to detach yourself from those two...

  7. Karen, you are such a good writer! It was almost like being in the car with you three. It's a surprise that Hester is the more laid back, at least when it comes to traveling. It sounds as if all three of you are made for each other. There is nothing better than a nap with kitties.
    Welcome home.

  8. What Anne Boleyn said about what a good writer you are, Karen! I loved hearing what the two itty bitties had to say during their trip to their new home.

    How wonderful that they're not a bit shy. They KNOW that this is their new home with their new human staff. :-)

    Thanks again and again for sharing their news with us!

  13. Hi Karen! I came over from the IBKC blog. I loved your account of Enid and Hester's trip to their new home!! Now, thanks to you, I want more kittens :-) My cats are almost 6 and almost 7 years old. They were both rescue kittens. Enjoy this precious time with your new little ones...they grow up SO fast!

  17. So I am not the only "Warden" who gets vocal demans for release "NOW"...Thanks for sharing the girls. Some of us in the East Coast are a bit jealous of those who get these babies...sigh.

  19. "Nobody knoooows ... the trouble I've seen...."

    Heehee, this post was fun to read. Congratulations, Karen, and I hope you have a happy life with Enid and Hester. And thank you for sharing, I know these two girls have attracted a bit of a fan club. Of which I am one.

    P.S.: I never knew Enid was a Johnny Cash fan. :D

    P.P.S.: My own cat Mowgli says hi.

  22. Hello Enid and Hester and Karen,

    I have a blog of my own and I think you should drop by. If you/your human will be posting as your precious kitty selves you should check out the Cat Blogosphere. You may be very surprised to see a whole online community of cat bloggers. I know they would welcome you with open paws.

    I'll be keeping my eyes on you, so glad you found a great home.
