On February 7, 2009 I adopted Donovan from Furkids animal
rescue. Donovan is a 9 month old orange tabby who was
dumped at Furkids when he was only about 4 weeks old.
When I met him at the shelter, he was an extremely
outgoing and lovable little guy, but his integration into his
new "forever home" was a little stressful.
Donovan went straight under my bed when I got him
home...and didn't so much as poke a whisker out for 3 days.
Not to eat, not to use the bathroom, not to drink
water...nothing. Finally, 3 days later, he emerged.
After his rough start, Donovan has blossomed into an
adorable little snuggle kitty. He is a bit of a mama's boy,
but I don't mind that one bit.
Next, the search began for new kitty #2. I had always
intended to get two kitties, but the other kitty I was
interested in when I found Donovan was already spoken for.
On February 28, 2009, I brought Harley home.
Harley is a 10 month old black and white tuxedo, and he's
had a tough life. He was rescued by Furkids in October
2008 after suffering some pretty severe abuse as a kitten.
You would never know it to meet him, as he is the
sweetest, most trusting kitty you can imagine. On the car
ride home, he just laid in his carrier and purred.
There was no hiding under the bed for Harley. He made
himself right at home the second he emerged from the
carrier. And Donovan? Donovan could hardly contain his
excitement when he saw Harley. He is absolutely crazy
As Harley has gotten more used to his "forever home," he
has begun to live up to the reputation he earned at Furkids.
That being, "he's like a teenager, with ADD, on crack." So
true! Harley is a handful. But an awesome and adorable
So...my kitty quota has been filled. Here are the boys!
