I’m neglecting my post!

Post at the front of the shop, that is! The place is packed and I’ve got kittens on the brain :)

One of my customers brought in these kittens… and I just. can’t. stand. it.

I WANT ONE!!!!!!

Maybelline or “May” for short? :) She has an “M” on her forehead & black eyeliner!!

They are “free to a good home” so call me if anyone wants one and they are in the area! I can’t stand the cuteness!
I really want “May”, however, I’m already sneezy, itchy and headachy because I’m allergic :( Please give me an excuse to get her! Please please please!!! :)

Must get back to work… customers will start to wonder, all they can hear is frantic typing from my little computer cave in the back!


It’s now 7:04pm and I have to say, it’s strange how the universe works ;)

So, Charlotte, the kitties’ owner, brought “May” back at 6:00 so Nathan and Meg could meet her. By this point, 3 out of the 5 kittens had new homes (So, if you are interested in a little orange male, let me know!) Nathan came up to the shop with our very large golden retriever, Nutmeg, and instantly, “May” was hissing and very upset about the large beast trying to lick her. We reluctantly said we’d take the kitty home and try her out for a couple of days. It didn’t feel 100% right, but I couldn’t resist her sweet little face.

We were getting ready to close and take our new kitty to the pet shop to get a litter box, toys etc… and in runs a little girl out of breath, then her sister. They had been in earlier with their Dad, shopping for Mother’s Day. (When he saw the kitten we were thinking of in the pile o’ kittens, he said “You should name her Violet!”. And we thought that was a splendid idea!) They had gone home and told their Mom, Sandie, about the kittens and after a few hours, they came back up to get her. We spent a good 10 minutes re-telling the story of how we were going to take her home, but we weren’t sure… but now I think it was meant to be that she go home with you etc and so on and long winded… as usual. I couldn’t resist the large grins on their little faces, I thought the kitty should be theirs, hands down!

They are going to name her “Violet”… I think it was meant to be, don’t you? :)

Too perfect :)

    I am so glad I’m too far away to get the kittens. I would take all of them. So adorable. I have my two Anna and Bailey. I wonder how they would like a friend?

    Oh my gosh! How sweet! Looks like a little GiGi! It must have been difficult letting her go, but alas it was kismet!

    Oh my goodness that calico is so darling! Actually they all are but I already have an orange one, a tabby, and a tortoise calico so I am complete (but a girl can look!). I’m so glad they found good homes, those girls look tickled to death to get Violet. I’ll bet she never lacks for snuggles.
