04Sep22: Mercury comes home!

The trip to her new forever home begins.

There is one complication…

…Mercury’s is not happy to go in the carrier! (Maybe she thought she was going back to the shelter….) 
Mariah recently lost her older kitty. After mourning her loss, Mariah decided she should find a new friend for Ziggy, her other kitty.

Mercury finally made it home and readily agreed this sure beats
the shelter!
The darling Ziggy!

Ziggy wasn’t totally in on the adoption plan. Cute as her new adopted sister is, Ziggy is not totally happy about it.

What’s that hissing sound? A gas leak?
No. Ziggy isn’t ready to share Mariah with her new friend. Mercury will be a bathroom kitty about as long as it takes, then she and her new sister will have a wonderful life with Mariah!

Mercury is learning to be a lap kitty.

Being cute comes with the territory, too!

Mariah is one of the dialysis team. She also is a great kitty mom! I know Mercury will soon become a happy member of the whole family. (Ziggy, it’s your job to be cute and teach your new sister the house rules!)

  1. Such a great picture-story ! Welcome Mercury – give Ziggy some time he is still missing his friend…but in time you should become good friends too ! Purrs !

    • It’s looking like they will adjust quickly to each other. I think older cats tend to adjust to kittens more quickly than two older ones.

        • Wow! That must be stressful for them all. A neighbor had a cat that literally spent her day on top of the refrigerator except to eat and use the litter box because she didn’t like the second cat in the family.

          • The late Shabbos the Cat spent two weeks on top of kitchen cabinet because she didn’t want to share her home with a little puppy. She didn’t eat or use litter box, until one day the doggie escaped through the window and was never found. Shabbos came down, looked smug, and acted as if nothing happened.

    • The photo where she’s becoming a lap kitty is so cute, cute, cute, I want to go down to the local shelter and find a playmate for Andy! I won’t, but it definitely is vexing me just now – with my health issues, can I properly care for a second kitty? Andy is at an age when he isn’t a problem to care for because he is happy to be less active than his kitten years.

    • Oh no! On my 17+ inch (43+cm) laptop screen, the red spots show clearly to be a design element on the blanket. They are red dots and there’s a red pine tree, suggesting a Christmas theme, perhaps. Knowing her new kitty mom, Mariah, the only problem Mercury will have in life is being cared for and love, love, loved! She won the life lottery for a shelter cat.
