Ann (Wesley and L's new mama) sent me a whack of emails over the weekend that I didn't see until today!
I immediately broke down in tears of happiness to see what I saw. And it wasn't just pregnancy hormones ;)
I'm not going to waste time... Do you recognize these two fine strapping young men??????????
That's right!!! It's them!!! Can you believe how BIG they are???
(Wesley is top, L - now Elliot - is bottom)
Remember this?? It seems just like yesterday. I barely even recognize them anymore.
She told me that both of them are doing just fine. They've learned the litterbox on their own (with a little help from her once in a while), and they're both playful happy kitties.
Still not walking, of course, but they get around the regular drag and wobble CH way ;)
She ran into a bit of a scare back in August with an URI that spread through all the kitties in the house from a foster CH kitten she brought in, where Wesley got terribly sick - but with lots of meds and TLC, she was able to nurture him back. And now he's back to his old self again.
Poor little Wesley will probably always suffer from being such a small little fella, and with the news that he will carry the herpesvirus throughout his whole life, he'll probably always need an extra eye on him as he goes through life. But, I'm confident, with the progress he's made to date, that he'll just keep pushing through.
I really couldn't have imagined a better place that these cats to end up. She has done so much for them over the past few months. It's amazing.
I know she's still on the fence about whether or not it's realistic for her to keep them forever, amongst all the other cats in her house, but I know it would be really difficult for her to let them go. I, personally, would LOVE to have them back - though with the coming changes in this household in the next while, I don't know if it would be a reasonable decision. Still going to put the word out there though, in case anyone knows of a loving home that is interested in a couple of CH cats - give me a shout :)
Eeee! What an exciting day!
Oh, and to add to it... here's some videos!
That's it for now! Happy Tuesday!
PS: Thank you all so much for your nice words for our bundle on the way - we are suuuper excited, even if it means we have to put the fostering on hold for a bit.
Oh, and the fleas are completely gone now (hurray!). Lots of vacuuming and a little drop of Advantage on the back of Yoko's neck and we were free! :D
