Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: From Feral to Formerly with Brother Simon and Sister Seal

Many of you were wondering if we could take a bonded pair of 6 monthh old feral kittens and teach them about human love and life on the inside.  Lots of you have done this before so you knew the answer.  Others of you weren’t quite sure.

Well, patience and love usually win the day and Brother Simon and Sister Seal are doing great.  Want to see?  Of course you do!

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brother Simon loves to be held and snuggled.  Who would have thunk it. Take al look at those paws, he’s going to be a big boy when he grows into those things. He’s pretty good size for 8 months.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Seal is a real snuggle bug too and if you don’t pick her up for a snuggle she will tap you on the leg to remind you she’s waiting.  She is a small gal but has a purr motor that will equal the best of them!

They both are doing really, really good and we are so very proud of them for learning that love and life on the inside is a good thing.  We are so thankful for their progress!

Today we’re equally proud to say remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I can’t get enough of either! I wonder how they became bonded … goes to show that cats are so much smarter than us stupid humans who can’t manage to get along most of the time 🙂

That is so amazing! Congratulations to you for showering these kids with love and seeing such amazing results. It’s so, so hard to help them learn to trust, and it takes putting up with a lot of rejection in the early days. Clearly, you have the magic touch. I am so impressed and happy!

(And Sister Seal looks so much like my Fergus that I had to do a double-take!)
