So in October 2013, someone tossed three tiny two-week-old kittens into a dumpster in Greece...
These three little angels came into the care of a wonderful woman named Joan, who runs a cat sanctuary on a beautiful Greek island, helping the many poor feline waifs that cross her path. Even though it was difficult, because she already had some many cats in her care, she took in these three.
But they needed a permanent home, and Joan really wanted the three sisters, who shared a strong bond, to find a home together.
For a year, she kept trying to find them a home, but it's hard to find someone to adopt three cats all at once, never mind the logistics of getting them out of Greece.
But after six months of planning with Joan, I can now say that the three girls will always be together...
...because Buttercup, Daisy and Honey now live with us! To make a long story short, Joan's husband flew with them from Athens to Montreal, where we picked them all up at the airport. And here they are!
Honey is super-affectionate, but they are all utterly lovely cats.
I just love it when all three of them sit on my lap at once, purring away.
Daisy approves of her heater! The sheepskin came with her from Greece. The three kittens have slept on it for a very long time and it is truly theirs.
So yes, we now have 13 cats, giving Katnip Lounge and The Maple Syrup Mob a bit of a run for their money.
Remember Mootie and Pip, two more needy kitties that we adopted a little while back?
They are doing great! I think Mootie is Queen of the Barn!
Every day, she comes out of her shell a little bit more, and every day, I give her what she wants most: a good brushing! She ADORES being brushed.
She does look very much like a feminine version of our Julius!
Pip is doing great as well...
She likes running around with Redford a lot.
They love to roll in the mud! As soon as I get them brushed and cleaned, they simply roll in the mud again.
BRING ON THE SNOW!
They are cuter than cute.
So yes, 13 cats. We couldn't be happier!
Pee Ess: SEVEN of our cats are ornj!!!
