As I’ve mentioned many times, I do not have lots of “adoptable” cats here at Winnie’s Wish. I take the tougher cases and almost always need very special people to adopt them. At this point in time I really have only three cats who might be able to move into a new home and adjust quickly. Two of those are part of the same family. Do you remember Betty Lou? She is the disabled mom cat I took in along with her three sons. Betty Lou is ready to go straight into a home. She has been tame from the start and really wants more than the shelter life can give her. One of her sons – Bojangles – will also require less adjustment time than most other Wishers. He is desperate for my attention when I enter the cathouse, and he doesn’t hide when people other than me enter his world.
I’ve posted about this little family before. But recently I have noticed a “pairing” up of these family members. Binks is the shyest of the three boys. I’ve noticed that he is the one who is most needy of his mom, too. If someone out there would adopt Betty Lou AND Binks together, then Binks would have a shot at The Good Life whereas his chances of adoption as a single kitty are pretty low. Bojangles is the life of the party. He is active and loving and playful. Boy Blue is the next tamest of the three boys. He and Bojangles play and romp and chase each other. If someone out there would adopt Bojangles AND Boy Blue together, I believe Blue would adjust more quickly because of having Bojangles there with him.
Now. I would adopt out any one of these cats as a single if it meant they had a shot at The Good Life. And certainly Betty Lou as a single would do fine. She does not NEED one of her boys with her. Bojangles would do fine as a single, too, as long as his new human spent lots of time playing with him. But the greatest thing would be if Binks could tag along with Betty Lou, or Boy Blue could tag along with Bojangles. In fact, Binks could go with Bojangles (they play together, too) and Blue could go with Betty Lou. The point would be to send a more timid kitty along with a more outgoing one.
In the past there have been MANY pairs of Wishers adopted together. It has always worked out great. Wish with me, Friends, that these four kitties will be chosen, and soon. We need some adoptions around here, and these four kitties could become really special additions to someone’s family if given the chance.
Here are some recent pictures of these great cats. Please share.
If you can’t remember about Betty Lou and her disability, here’s the video.
Wish for wonderful homes, Friends, and have a great weekend.
