Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Today I’m hiding out in the bottom of our new house.  Okay, I’m not really hiding because it’s kind of an open space under here.  But, even though I’m happy, I’m not overly happy. Why?

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Well, the good news is that Tater was adopted. The sad news is that it wasn’t with the Mamma Turtle.  We so wanted a Happy New Year for this super bonded pair, but I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.  Now the prospects for Turtle are awfully dim.

So, today is a day of mixed emotions for me, part happy and part sad.  I guess I’ll just have to ponder on it for a while.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it, even Mommy Cats!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Oh dear, Brian…I feel for you – and certainly understand your predicament. I’ll bet you’re not the only one who’s only kinda-sorta happy. I’m wishing with all my might for a super-duper forever home for Mama – real soon!

    That is very very sad, because Tater is probably very unhappy too. I so wish I could take the Momma kitty. I just don’t have anywhere to put her at the moment. We sure will keep all our paws crossed for Turtle and send lots of purrs.

    Awww, poor Turtle! That is something that I just love and admire about Cat Care – they will NOT separate bonded pairs – ever. Someone has to adopt both kitties or neither kitty. Sometimes it makes for a longer stay at the shelter for a bonded pair, but I think that bond is worth it.

    I will pray that Turtle finds her forever home. <3

    Great a home was found for one, but yeah sucks they are split up and now Turtle is stuck waiting, as I’m sure they miss each other a lot

  5. Fraidy Cats!

    oh, Brian! we are sad for turtle too! It’s great that tater has his forever home though such a shame they couldn’t be together. We so wish we were closer and could do something for tater. We are purring her home is out there!

    Like you, Brian, we are both happy and sad. Our humans’ friends recently adopted a kitty and then heard that its sibling was pining away, and they went back to the shelter and adopted her as well. Maybe the shelter people could tell Tater’s new parents that Turtle is super sad and depressed, and they will do the same. We’ll be purring and praying for her.

    We certainly were hoping Tater and Turtle would go together too….I’m happy Tater has a home, now praying BIG TIME that Turtle will know that happiness too even if it’s without her Tater.

    Hugs, Sammy

    Mom adopted Annabelle and on her description it mentioned her kitten with her. Mom missed adopting Annabelle kitten (BTW Annabelle was named Fritz and her kitten was named Bluebelle) by mere days. She said she would have taken them both. She thinks Annabelle even now tries to “mother” the other cats. It breaks her heart and although there is nothing she can do about it now, she still feels sad for Annabelle. So we feel very very bad for Turtle. It seems so heartless. So so heartless.

  11. Fuzzy Tales

    Oh, Brian, that definitely is bittersweet. Our human couldn’t even imagine separating any bonded pair. We sure hope it works out for the best for them both, even though we can’t see it right now.

    Purrs to them.

  12. Katie Isabella

    I am truly sad that they could not be adopted together. I know they will both be terribly unhappy, That makes mom and I unhappy. 🙁

  13. William

    We are sad for Turtle but hope her luck changes soon. It’s really too bad that she didn’t get to go with her kidlet. Bonds are important–I mean, that’s how we got Ivan and Izzy both!

  14. JC

    You look very cute in your new house.

    Why couldn’t they have taken both .. people. At least one found a home though. Sad but happy but sad.

    That is very sad to split them up. If the people couldn’t take both, why couldn’t they have chosen one that wasn’t bonded with another. Too sad.

  16. LP

    It makes us feel judgemental and sad! Like . . . what kind of person would think it was o.k. to separate them? And why not choose a kitten/cat who weren’t bonded if you didn’t want two? And how great a home is it if Tater’s best interest isn’t in the forefront right from the get go?! We don’t like being judgemental… so hopefully the best and most loving home is just around the corner for Turtle! 🙂

    oh that just breaks my heart. I had a bonded pair once.. well more on one side than the other.. basically one kitten was the other kitten’s security blanket. They weren’t getting adopted together so they split them up, and the more outgoing one went home first. Poor Peter must have been miserable with out his buddy.. fortunately after a few more weeks he got adopted too and went into a home with other cats who helped him out which I was glad for.

    Oh, that is so tough. Tater gets a home, which is good, but it is not good that Turtle is left behind. She’s such a beauty too.
