Introducing Purrince Siddhartha

Hello friends I would like to introduce the newest member to the Purrfect Pad….remember when I went to the Adoption event & met the kittyboy Dharth??Siddhartha & SE Well one thing lead to another & without further ado let me introduce Prince Siddhartha.

“Go ahead Siddartha say Hello..”

*whispurrss* “Long Hair Lady (LHL) mee iss so shy.”

“It’s all right just tell people who you are; everyone wants to meet you Siddhartha!!”

“squeekss…Mee-you eberyone. Mee name iss Purrince Siddartha n mee iss now livin at Long Hair Ladiess place wif her. Eeek mee little pawss are shakin so mee will let LHL tell you all bout mee=¸¸¸¸¸¸¸¸¸¸¸¸ ok? Purrss”Siddhartha tucked up“Well done Siddhartha you did just ‘purfect’ little man!”

So I bet you are wondering how this happened? As you all know I was utterly devastated losing Nylablue (as much as I knew she was on borrowed time.) I had NO intention of going to the Adoption event but I had promised Nylablue I would attend so how could I not go?? None of the other kittens were interested in me & when I picked any of them up I would sneeze & get itchy. Siddharta however was a different story. He kept climbing the X-pen looking at me. I kept snuggling him. I did not sneeze or get itchy. After the event I could not stop thinking of him & I called the woman who had him at her place. We had a great talk & I found out Siddhartha had 1 sister & 1 Brother. His Mother is a feral Calico who lives in Mary Ellen’s barn & the Father is a wandering Burmese who visited the farm in early Spring…romance blossomed & 3 kits were the result. Notice that the woman & I have matching names?? How cool is that? Sheila took me out to Mary Ellen’s on Tuesday & there Dharth was with his brother Tye:Brother TyeTye is a rather bashful kittyboy & full of energy & loves his mousey! I played with them both & we let them snuggle for a while (before I put Siddhartha) into the carrier:Tye & Siddhartha snugglingTye is on the left & Siddhartha is on the right. I am sure they said “Goodbye” & off we went. To say Siddhartha settled in quickly is an understatemnt as you can see from this photo:Siddhartha lounging in condoYes my jaw dropped too & I grabbed the camera & took a few pix!! Not only does he use the Condo he also sleeps in Nylablue’s pedestal bed now in the livingroom:Siddhartha settling in 002So my so called foster situation is a supreme failure & I have adopted Siddhartha outright.

Siddhartha whispurrs, “May me mee-oww some more LHL?” “PLEEZE?”

“Of course little man!”

“Me iz berry happy to bee here wif LHL n even tho me missez Tye sum me iss reelly enjoyin beein here wif diss Purrson. She feeds me well n cleens me pottybox n snuggles me so much n da Luv she hass shown me can bee seen in diss pickture..”Siddhartha & my hand

*Siddhartha runs off to have a nap*  Thank you Siddhartha for sharing this photo. I love you too my little man & I am glad that Aunties’ Nylablue & Mingflower put us together! As you can imagine it will take a few weeks for Siddhartha to learn how to blog & share his story with all of you…he is after all only 5 months old…& he loves to nap alot, lol…Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha out…

 

Who could resist???

Hey Everyone Sherri-Ellen here. I wanted to share the Feral Cat Rescue adoption event from last weekend (Nov. 29th & 30th). I had promised Nylablue I would attend & help at this event & how could I let her down?? First there was the Itty Bitty Kitty who got adopted in the blink of an eye:Itty Bitty kittyIsn’t she adorable? The couple who adopted her looked so happy & it warmed my heart! Then there were the Brothers Nacho & Cheetoh who stole a young girl’s heart & unbeknownst to her she will be receiving BOTH on Dec. 12th. The girl was a mere 8 years old but she had such a way about her; a ‘cat whisperer’ in the making! Her Mother is a great woman for deciding to not just adopt one but both Brothers:Nacho & CheetoNacho 1

I’d love to be there when the girl is presented with her forever kitties! Nacho is the buff & Cheetoh is the orange tabby boy;  total cuteness! Then there was Furby…he is a white & grey tabby striped kitten who never made it to the adoption event Sunday morning. Nikki & I took him to a lady on the other side of town & she fell in love with him:FurbyDash kitten was supposed to be there too but he eluded Nikki & so he missed his chance to find a forever home til our next event. Finally,  there was the ‘black’ cat with the wonky eye…people looked but no one wanted to commit themselves to this 5 month old kittyboy. He was called Tigs but did not respond to that name. As he climbed the X-pen over & over I called him Darth Vader & the name stuck. Then somehow Darth ended up in my arms:Siddhartha & SESiddhartha snugglingNow how did THAT happen??? I mean Darth was just sitting there posing:Siddhartha posingAnd the next thing I knew I was snuggling this sweet funny little boy….he will be going into a foster situation in 9-10 days after he is neutered….

So the adoption event was a total success & altho’ I cried most of Saturday nite over Nylablue being gone I went back Sunday & helped with the event & I am so glad I did. There is nothing like seeing ‘new life’ after one loses a beloved 4 legged. This one was for you Nylablue!!!Nylablue 2014 from BinkyThank you Little  Binky & Grannie for making this lovely photo of Nylablue. Our “Sweet Feet” is back home now & she will sit on the coffeetable for the rest of my life with Mingflower:Nylablue & MingflowerUntil next time, we remain Sherri-Ellen & the “Angel Girls” of the Purrfect Pad.

Thankful Thursday

Hello Everyone Sherri-Ellen here…I just wanted to say a big heartfelt THANK YOU to ALL of you who have stood beside me during this sad time. Having to let Nylablue go to Summerland was not an easy decision but it was the BEST one for her. She was our “Sweet Feet” & I know we will always hold her in our hearts. I am truly thankful to the ‘Guardian Angels’ who helped for all these months to keep Nylablue healthy & with us. I also want to thank the newest ‘Guardian Angel’  Susan M. from Washington who helped me pay off the end balance today so I could bring Nylablue’s ashes home with a ZERO balance. You are an angel too! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was going to save this for a Wordless Wednesday but I couldn’t wait….

Before....

Now my ‘girls’ are in Summerland together & their ashes are home here with me where they belong. The journey draws to a close….nylabluerip from Penelope Nov 22nd 2014You will live in my heart forever Nylablue “Sweet Feet”….. always….
