First of all, I have to start with a correction. Last Tuesday, I launched a TWOSdays In February campaign hoping to interest someone out there in adopting a TWOsome from our cathouse gang. I went on and on about TWOs. I reminded you that on November 11th, I made a wish for eleven adoptions in as many months - eleven Winnie’s Wish kitties adopted between the first of December 2011 and the end of October 2012. And we are on track. There have been four kitties placed since I wrote that on 11/11. HOWEVER, I made a big splash last Tuesday about how we had TWO kitties adopted in December, and TWO kitties adopted in January. NOT true. In my haste to make a point of TWOs, I failed to realize that Luna’s adoption was NOT in January. It occurred on the 28th of December. I was so certain that we drove Luna to Mindy during the first week of January, but no. I believe it truly must have been the effect of having become lost in the Bermuda Triangle during that transport that has damaged my memory of that event. Anyway, . . . all of that noise about TWO in December, and TWO in January wasn’t even accurate. (sigh) SO . . . we’re going to have to go with averages. Thus far, there has been an average of TWO kitties adopted in the previous TWO months. I’d love to keep that average going. An average of TWO kitties per month throughout 2012 would have us quite prepared for whatever the upcoming NINE months of Kitten Season will bring us.
Here we go.
Today’s TWO to be highlighted . . . . Percy and Golden. I will highlight at least one pair on each of the remaining Tuesdays in February, but today’s pair is special. They are SO in love with each other that I have decided not to adopt them out as singles. I have mentioned before (and shown with pictures) how Percy and Golden are always together. Percy came out of his shell only when we introduced a load of kittens into the cathouse. He loved them all. His personality blossomed. As many of those kittens have gone to forever homes, Percy has had a CONSTANT companion - Golden. She has glued herself to Percy’s side, and he seems to love it. They sleep together and eat together. They even walk around together. Initially, I thought it was maybe one-sided. I thought Golden was desperate for Percy, but that Percy, being the extremely good-natured soul that he is, merely allowed it to go on. But I have spent time at the cathouse watching things. Percy is completely enamored with Golden, too. What a pair.
In light of just how strong the bond between them is, Percy and Golden should go to a forever home as a pair. Everything about Percy’s wonderful personality is because of being in the presence of the cathouse youngsters. Golden is one of only two of the youngsters still there. And she definitely needs him. I believe she might grieve herself to death without him. Also, because of watching Percy have SUCH a LONG adjustment period with us, I believe he will be so much better off going to a forever home with one of his own. I would LOVE for someone out there to adopt these two together. It’s Valentine’s Day. Anybody want to celebrate by offering this loving pair a home TWOgether?
I’m going to inundate you with pictures because these TWO are just TOO cute TOgether.
Look at this perfect graphic I found. Perfect for a post about a perfect pair:
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
