After losing Cleo in February 2022, we knew that we’d adopt again when the time felt right. This time, we were going to make sure we adopted siblings or a bonded pair, because we do not have the space in an RV to gently introduce two unfamiliar cats to each other. We reached out to the local shelter while in the Mission, TX area, asking to be notified if they had bonded pairs or siblings we could adopt, and finally got a call.
Our first meeting
On Saturday, January 21, 2023, we did a meet and greet with two foster kittens at the local animal shelter. Kale and Gritz had been with foster who handles kittens, and when we met up, she let us know that Kale was super shy. However, she thought Kale might warm up given a day or two.
The first week
Once we decided that we’d adopt both kittens, we did all the paperwork and promised to take them to a local vet facility to get spayed. They were too young to be spayed by the animal shelter at 10 weeks. They were only 2.5 lbs each.
The first thing we did was change their names. Kale became Luna, and Gritz became Loki. Yes, they are both female kittens, but Loki fits her personality.
We discovered that first week that there were a lot of places our older, senior cats had never attempted to go that kittens just love. Here’s just one of those spots. 🙂
More fun places to hide or sleep
As they got bigger, they were finding different places to rest or sleep.
Loki curling up on humans
Loki loves to curl up on both of us. She would just plop herself wherever she wanted on a human, and expect that we would hold her safely in whatever position she chose.
Luna prefers to supervise
The video I was trying to watch was this one: Benedict Cumberbatch reads a hilarious letter of apology to a hotel
More random cat photos
You’ll notice in that last photo that both Loki and Luna have shaved bellies. We did keep our promise to have both of them spayed, and the fur is growing back just fine.
Kittenhood is going fast
Loki and Luna are now 6 months old and growing fast. We’ll keep you updated on their progress and hilarious antics.
