Karen Jo: This is a Cinco de Mayo photo of Bambino from years ago. You can see the most recent pictures in my last blog entry. The really great news is that Bambino got adopted! A family wanted to adopt a FeLV+ cat to keep their FeLV+ cat company. I recommended Bambino. They looked around at some other cats and chose Bambino. Yay! It's a perfect family for Bambino. There is another cat for him to be buddies with, a dog, which Bambino doesn't mind and children, whom Bambino is fond of. It gets him away from Clancy. He wasn't too happy about leaving, but I think that he's happy now. This happened last Saturday. I waited until now to tell you about it, because I was afraid that he would be returned for being the grumpy cat that he was here. It looks like that as soon as he got away from Clancy, he went back to his original personality of a happy, very loving cat.
Rocio: I hid from Mom and her camera. She had to bend way over to take my picture. That's why I'm all fuzzy. I miss Bambino, but not too much. My buddy has always been Julius.
Tabitha: I miss having Bambino around. We were meal buddies, eating in bowls side by side. On the other hand, I get a better chance of grabbing the big pillow in the sun puddle now.
Cricket: I won't hold still for Mom and the camera. That's why I'm fuzzy. Bambino was a great guy. He used to hang out with me in the safe room. He was never grumpy in there. I miss him. I keep squinting my left eye. Mom's going to call the vet on Monday.
Clancy: Bambino? ::snort:: I'm glad that the little creep is gone. He hissed and growled and yowled at me all the time. Mom says it's because his best friend was Alpha before me, but he got adopted and Bambino wanted to be Alpha. Ha! I came here and found a leaderless bunch of cats and took over. Too bad that hurt Bambino's feelings. It's so much nicer now that he's gone.
Karen Jo: The tension that was so prevalent in the atmosphere here is gone. All the cats are more relaxed now. Clancy is acting like a calm, normal Alpha now. He is having more fun.Clancy: I do have a playful side. Here I am kitty-wrestling with Chevelle.
Chevelle: It's fun. I squeak a little bit when I wrestle with Clancy, but I enjoy it.
Karen Jo: Do any of you have any suggestions for getting a very shy cat to the vet? I managed it with Jonny because he was in a small room. Julius is mostly hanging out in the living room now. I can close doors between the living room and the rest of the house, but it's a huge room full of hiding places.
