Celebration!! Foster Pipsqueak Adopted!!!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I think Foster Pipsqueak aka Pip, must have known he was gonna be needing to get used to “packing his bags” when he decided to nap next to Dad P’s bag with Katie in it.

For those who don’t recall how Pip came to live in my castle, here’s a brief recap of his capture as a feral kitten, never touched by human hands until about 12 weeks old.

Mom L knew right away that Pip had something wrong with his right eye and she hoped that she could manage to administer eye ointment by burrito wrapping him. Well not only did that work out just fine, Pip started to purr up a storm while Mom L was holding him after administering his medication! Hours later he rolled on his side and back to let Mom L pet his tummy and he purred even more. In a day he was climbing onto Mom L’s chest and snuggling with her. He loved giving her nose kisses!

Pip and Katie became best friends and they played like crazy all over the house. They especially liked to share their food with each other.

Pip and Katie would eat out of the same dish, then one would move to the other dish and was soon followed by whoever was left at the first dish. They were so silly.

Pip grew into such a handsome boy in the almost three months he lived in my castle. He had sleek short soft fur at first.

But in the last month with us Pip started to fill out and puff out!! He was spending a lot of time growing toe tufts, ear tufts, a long floofy tail and floofy tummy. Why he even started to grow out his pants on his back hind legs.

One of his favorite wand toys had a furry thingy with little leather straps and he so liked to catch it and try to carry it away with him!!

Mom L promoted Pip all over the San Francisco bay area for at least six weeks and no one inquired about him. Our partners at Community Concern For Cats (CC4C) helped promote Pip through their social media and the few inquiries that showed up were just not right for our sweet boy.

Then the last Saturday in September, a young couple asked to meet Pip at CC4C’s adoption event at Petco. Their emails were so detailed and informative about why they were interested in Pip. They lost their senior cat to cancer a few months ago and their three year old boy cat was lonely for another cat to hang out with. Mom L really liked how the couple talked about the way their cared for their cats and they only  want a kitty to be indoors.

Well, Pip worked his magic when they met him—meaning he didn’t do a thing except allow them to pet his luxurious furs. He never gave any eye contact because at Petco there are too many loud people looking at the kitties. The couple and Mom L agreed that if their resident cat, Barsik, didn’t accept Pip, then he would come back to my castle. 

Don’t they look like cat people!! So nice

Long story short, Barsik really likes Pip! They play together and hang out together just like long lost buddies. And Miss Anastasia was hoping for a kitty that would enjoy having her hold it and cuddle it and Pip is doing all that. Barsik is more of a cat’s cat, he loves his pets but not being cuddled or picked up. So Pip will handle that part for the both of them!! Here are photos of Pip in his forever home.

He clearly loves his new humans already. He gazes in their eyes with trust.

Pip is in the best forever home any kitten could ask for. Mom L and Dad P and Katie all miss him, but I am glad he isn’t here anymore. His liveliness frightened me and made me nervous enough that I stopped eating much out of concern he would sneak up behind me. You see I am close to completely deaf. As soon as Pip was off with his forever humans, I started to eat well again and took up my place in Mom L’s office which had been Pip’s bed time space for too long. 

Isn’t he a handsome boy?

Someone idolizes TKS

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I  think most of you know that we have a foster brofur living with us. As for me, I’m not pleased, not pleased at all. I hiss so hard and loud that I have to koff and clear my throat when I’m done! And half an hour later, there he is back again trying to touch my nose. Sheesh!!

Okay, he does throw himself down right in front of me showing his tummy and being all submissive as well he should be, but I gotta tell ya, I sure do hope he finds his forever home really soon.

As for TKS, she is now allowing nose touches on a rare occasion. The foster brofur Pipsqueak seems to idolize TKS. Maybe it’s the fur color? What do you think?

TKS is crazy over an type of treat, and Pip is right there next to her. Pip has even tried to copycat TKS getting into our high cat tower in our master bedroom. Mom L was lying on her side and managed to capture some drunken looking photos of what TKS thinks about having Pip on the tower with her.

He’s down on the next level, right?

Look at Pip’s idolizing gaze.

Ok kid, you better stay one story down

Pip knew he couldn’t go up to the next story or else he’s get a paw whap for sure. Finally TKS fixed the situation so’s she could get her afternoon nap without feeling spied on.

You can watch my back kid

Yep, TKS turned to face the wall and by golly so did Pip!! MOL!!

Do any of your fur siblings idolize your every move?? Tell me how in comments.

Artistic Foster Kitten Pipsqueak

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Turns out my newbie foster kitten, Pipsqueak aka Pip, has some artist talent in him. Who knew a street cat could be so creative??!!

Mom L turned Pip and his sidekick Katie loose on her iPad and their efforts and team work created a very stunning piece of art. But, I’ll leave it to my readers’ judgment about whether or not it’s as pawsome as I think.

Pip’s interest in art showed up when he tried to help Mom L get the photos properly edited for me to write my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. I must say that he selected his edits with care and taste for making the photo look natural.

His next opportunity came when he got access to the iPad. It started out with a blank slate, just that stoopy schmousie that runs all over the screen eeekking and wiggling its tail. You know the game I mean, right?

Pip asked Katie to take a look and assist him in getting things started. You see Pip was a bit shy at first to start paw whapping that schmousie, but foster sisfur Katie had no problem giving it a few whacks to show Pip how it’s done.

Katie then backed off and did some coaching while Pip tried it out.

Now he was on a roll!! He got down up close and purrsonal with that schmousie and all the colors created whenever Pip whapped him one.

Pip stopped to admire his art work and to consider just how he wanted to complete it.

APAWS   APAWS!!!!

Pip’s final art piece revealed!!

If you have created your own artwork, please share in comments!! I’d luvluvluv seeing what my pals are creating!
