Ziggy wasn’t totally in on the adoption plan. Cute as her new adopted sister is, Ziggy is not totally happy about it.
Mercury is learning to be a lap kitty.
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!)
Mercury is so cute . I am sure Ziggy will be a good but firm teacher, Doug ! 🙂
What a cutie!!! Had to look at these pictures several times.
Me, too! I look forward to updates on the two kitties and will post photos when Mariah sends them to me.
So cute. They’ll probably be friends soon.
I asked Mariah to let me in on their progress so I can update this post.
Aww, they’re so cute! I’m sure everything will be fine in a few days.
Mariah says they saw each other and there wasn’t any hissing. She’s planning on putting them together soon.
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 !
Mariah told me they may be close to that point.
Mercury is really cute and even funny, Doug . Probably she is a young cat. It is sure, Ziggy will adopt her. I wish courage for the dialysis to Maria and you .
Ziggy is a cutie and Mercury is a beauty! I hope they adjust to each other and have fun together.
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.
Barmalei and Beba still have not accepted Pyshka, even though we rescued her as a tiny kitten four years ago.
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.
What an happy new 🙂 3 wonderful hearts together – amitiés 🙂
Mercury is one lucky kitten!
Cute little kittens and older siblings. Eventually the older will take the younger “under paw” and teach her the ways of the household.
One hopes the two become best buddies soon!
Mercury sure is cute. I hope her a Ziggy get along.
Yes, I think Mariah adopted a really cute one!
This is wonderful news, Doug! Wishing Mariah many long years with Mercury and Ziggy. 🐱❤️🐱
Mariah is a good kitty mom so there is no doubt they will have happy lives with her!!
This is so wonderful, Doug! Mercury is an adorable kitty, I’m sure they will learn to be friends in time.
Yes, I am sure they will become buddies!
Mercury is so cute . I am sure, Doug, she will be adopted by Ziggy, for the great pleasure of Maria! 🙂
They already cuddle together! It happened in very short time.
Oh what adorable kitties, both of them! I hope they settle in together soon!
Mercury is adorable. I am so happy she found a forever home.
She won life’s lottery becoming Mariah’s second kitty!
Mercury is adorable! I sure hope Ziggy accepts her.
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.
A touching photo story. Are those specks of blood on the cloth?
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.
