Today, on behalf of all of us at Brian’s Home, I want to introduce you to our newest sister, her name is Kiki. She’s very small, about 10 months old and is just as sweet as she can be. We’re all thankful to have her as a part of our family.

FUN FACT: Kiki was on our header all day yesterday and nobody noticed her up there.

Kiki showed up on one of our feral cams on May 4th and she looked pretty scared. She started showing up in our yard but the ferals scared her a good bit. She kept coming back trying to get something to eat. Finally, she made her way to the feeding stations and became a regular at meal time. She quickly learned the feeding schedule and came back for food just like clockwork. We tried to see if someone was missing her but they weren’t, nobody was looking for her.

Then she started rubbing on Dad’s legs before she had something to eat. Our Dad was able to pick her up and pet her lots, she loves being petted. We’re pretty sure she was left behind when humans down the street moved away. It was obvious from the start that she loves the human touch.

On Tuesday, July 26th, the Dad picked her up and put her in a carrier. They made the jaunt to the Vet to get her checked out. Kiki tested negative for the bad stuff and her spay day is scheduled for August 16th. Once we got home we discovered she had a cough so she went back to the Vet on Monday to get it checked out, all is good.. She was super good riding in the car both times.

So, there you have it, an unexpected new sister that fit right in after day two and we’re thankful we get to introduce her to you. So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    This is wonderful news! Dolly is cheering from the rainbow bridge, I’m sure. Your humans do good works. And yes, I am guilty of not really noticing banners of favorite blogs. I’m too anxious to read! lol Blessings, my dears.

  2. messymimi

    Hooray for a new sister! You’re right, i didn’t see her in the header until you pointed her out, but i only just read your Wednesday post about ten minutes ago on the old computer. It’s so old it doesn’t even show the whole picture at the top!

    Congratulations to Kiki, i’m so glad your family took her in.

  3. Marjorie and Toulouse



    She got left BEHIND?!?!?!? WTF is it with stupid, horrible, nasty people. * bangs head against wall * I mean seriously.

    But, maybe KiKi lucked out and found a much MUCH MUCH BETTER and safer haven.

  4. Fur Everywhere

    Hi Kiki! We love you already! You are such a gorgeous girl, and we hear that you are very sweet. <3 We can't wait to get to know more about you! You found the best family you could have possibly asked for. You will be well-cared for and so loved.

  5. meowmeowmans

    Well, hello and welcome, Kiki! You sure did choose the very best, most loving forever home and family, sweet girl! We’re looking forward to getting to know you. We are over the moon happy for all of you! Hugs and purrs from us! – Ava, Mom Tracey and Dad Kevin

  6. Leah

    Wow, Kiki is just beautiful! I totally missed seeing her in the header yesterday! LOL
    How sad that anyone would leave pets behind; so glad she’s with y’all now. Brian, you look extra handsome today!

  7. Lillian

  8. Madison

    Wow! Congratulations and what an adorable and sweet girl she is! You all will make her feel welcome and she will settle right in. What a lucky kitty!

  9. MadSnapper

    Welcome to your new home, Kiki… you are so cute and beautiful. Love your eyes. It is proof that you fit right in with your siblings that none of us noticed you in the header. I am a tad embarrassed about that. I teared up a little reading your happy story of Dad picking you up and then bringing you into their home. I love a Cinderella story and yours is one. You are blessed to be there, and they are blessed you found them. It breaks my heart that humans can just move off and leave their pets.

  10. The Poupounette Gang

    Oh that is such wonderful news! Welcome home, Kiki! You are a real cutie. You chose yourself the best family ever. We are looking forward to following your adventures!

  11. Teddy

    Welcome Kiki! Oh boy are you in the BEST possible home EVER! There are lots of great nap spots in that house too so you should have no problem finding good places to keep an eye on things. Your photo looks great in the “header line-up” – you’re a pretty little girl who is going to have a GREAT life now that you’re safe in a home. Thanks to Brian for hosting the Hop today too! We are SO thankful for many things including meeting the new family member!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  12. Mickeys Musings

    Well hello Kiki!!!! Sorry to hear you were abandoned(that’s what mum and I think) but yay for you finding Brian’s Home!!!!
    You could not have a better place to live. Mum and I are sure you will love living there and you will have such pawsome siblings:) I look forward to learning more about you and seeing you enjoy life 🙂

    Purrs, Julie

  14. Sandee

    Brian you are a sneaky tabby. OMCs no I did not notice there were 4 in your header either. WOW
    Kiki I know Seal is happy to have a sister to help her keep the bros in line.
    I love your name and your furs are beautiful. You were a brave little girl to keep coming back and smart too notice that you were among friendly humans who would love you furever.
    Hugs cecilia

  16. Precious

    KIki, you are so cu-cute! We were just wondering about how the ferals were
    doing and here you must have lost your home but now have a super home. Precious

  17. Diane

    What a wonderful win-win story for Kiki and her human and fur family. She’s so cute! Much happiness.

  18. Susan from Bucks County Pennsylvania

    Welcome to your new home! What a happy story of Kiki becoming a member of Brian’s gang!

  19. Catscue

    Congratulations! Kiki is just a beauty, isn’t she? I’m so very sorry she was abandoned, alone and scared and also not spayed, not good! But there is a happy ending, she is loved and safe now – hooray! You are all Superheroes, you know that – right?

  20. Loulou

    We are thankful for YOU having Kiki, who looks so regal and perhaps has a mix of Siamese somewhere in there…absolutely BEAUTIFUL, that Kiki. MERCI for including her in your family

  21. LA Paylor

    oh she is so sweet…. as you told the story I could feel her fear and hopelessness… I felt how lost she must have felt… and now safe and loved. She is so beautiful and fitting right in… 10 months old, still a baby. I’m so glad you two and cats family were there for her. Love expands to include others…. LeeAnna and Milo

  22. The J-Cats

    Oh, what a beautiful little kitty girl you are, Kiki! And lucky too. You have hit the jackpot with your new home. Maybe it wasn’t just chance though. We are pretty sure Angel Dolly had a paw in it, whispering in your ear and making sure you ended up exactly where you were destined to be – with a family for whom “forever” really does mean forever.

  23. Lucy and Xena

    Welcome to your new furever home, Kiki! You will never be abandoned again. And we voted, and it is unanimous: you are one of the most beautiful kitties we’ve ever seen. XOX Xena, Lucy and Riley

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

    Brian, I have said it before and will say it again, your mom and dad totally rock!! Thank you mom and Dad, Terry for taking this beauty in and giving her a FUR EVER home. She is adorable and I am hoping that she is wrapping the rest of the felines around he pretty paw! I love it….If I had the body, the land and the money I would make a BIG place for strays and ferals. I prefer strays since most of them are like Kiki, don’t mind holding and rubbing. Feral cats don’t want my hugs! However, if I could make them a safe place to come and go I would. Thank you again Terry for taking this babe in and loving her.

  26. Jan K

    Oh, what happy news! Congratulations to the whole family on your new addition, and welcome, Kiki! She is SO pretty, I just love her coloring. ♥

    Charlee: “Hooray for a new sibling! Welcome aboard, Kiki!”
    Chaplin: “You sure are cute! And I can’t believe we didn’t spot you up there in the header!”
    Charlee: “We must have been too busy trying to figure out what Seal was looking at.”
    Chaplin: “Or maybe it was Simon’s eyes!”
    Lulu: “Or maybe you cats just aren’t as observant as you think you are.”
    Charlee: “No, that can’t be it …”

  38. Ruth Epstein

    Welcome home Kiki you are so pretty and your name is adorable, you are one lucky kitty to have such a loving home where you will be spoiled rotten, thank you Brian for adopting home, you a hero in our eyes.

  39. Pip-Squeak

    Welcome home, Kiki. I know you are little and may not know it yet, but you have hit the jackpot of families. You are going to live your best kitty-life!

    Happy gotcha day, sweet girl.
    Your new furend, Pip

  40. Create With Joy

    Welcome to the family Kiki – what a wonderful ending to what could have been a tragic story – you are a smart gal for finding the purr-fect family to love you!

  41. Wendy

    Congratulations on the new family mempurr! I guess we’re all used to seeing large numbers of cats on your header so it doesn’t immediately stand out.

    I am thrilled for you all! Yes, from Kiki’s behaviour, she must be used to human interaction. And she’s good in the car, too.
    Bonus. Kiki’s a lovely little girl, and I hope all the other kitties learn to love her, too. So darn sweet. Hurray!

  42. Cathy Kennedy

    Welcome Kiki! You have found a great forever home with some nice hoomans. Oh yeah, let’s not forget Brian and your other new furblings. They’ll soon be your bestest of furiends. And, now you won’t have to ever worry about outside things again in safe, loving surroundings. 🙂
