Jasper and Pounce

We usually share our lives up and downs on our blogs.
One I did not share because my heart was broken was my Boots passed away in November.
I was devastated, how could I not be.....
He slept with me every night on my pillow holding my hand and always greeted me when I came home from work with a kiss. 15 wonderful years.

But then I saw this on my friends blog

a little homeless kitten brought to her to bottle feed.
I adopted him the minute I saw the picture.
He was still too young for me to get so I had to wait.
The same time Tete got him one of her foster cats had kittens.

About 2 weeks ago she posted this picture.
She asked on FB if away was interested in adopting him.
He was the last from the takers.
How could you not fall in love with THAT face!?
Yep, I said he can come home with Jasper.
If you have followed me, you may remember I had 2 cats, Boots and Pinky.

So last Saturday I got the privilege of finally meeting Tete in person, her family, her furry family and touring her beautiful yard.
Jasper and Pounce came back to 1515 with me.
They were so good.

used the liter box and ate right away.

they played and explored

then much to my happiness they both jumped in my lap and took a nap.
True bliss for me.

I can see Jasper is going to help with my blog posts!

never heard a peep out of the all night.
But finally it was Pounce getting me up, Come on Mom!

Jasper pretty much hangs out where every I am

Only with me 24 hrs but seem happy,,,,and relaxed!

Then it was time to load up to take them home
They slept the entire 2 hours, not saying a word.
We showed them to Greta who barked, and Jasper growled and Pounce was shaking.
Oh no! It is going to take time, Greta is much bigger than Tete's puppy.
Greta and Boots were great buddies and these guys will at some point to.

So for now they are in the guest room

playing and exploring

My neighbor and dog sitter has been checking on them while I am at work.
She is a cat person and her last cat just died, I thought maybe she would want Pounce but now I am glad she wasn't  ready.

they are just adorable.
Pounce I think has the perfect name, he is always Pouncing.
I let them out today and he was so funny going down the stairs, but brave.
He is going to be the Alpha I think, we shall see
Jasper I think is my lap cat.
Tete did such a good job with them You can even hold them and tell them to go to sleep and they will.
I was just holding Jasper and Pounce got jealous.
Oh how I love it.

Welcome home to Jasper and Pounce!!!!

Oh, Ann! I'm so sorry about your precious little Boots! It is so very hard to loose a pet. But, what little cuties you've got now! How sweet and they seem so loving. I know your other pets will welcome them in. Thank you so much for popping in to see me. I have a lot of catching up to do. God is good!
Be a sweetie,

Ann, I am sorry your pet Boots passed away. I know it was a sad time.I can't even begin to tell you how very happy I am that you met Tete and adopted two of her little kittens. I really love following Tete's blog. I am so happy you already love your new furry friends and will have them for company too. They are so darn cute too. Bless your good heart, xoxo, Susie

I just found your blog through Tete's blog and became a new follower. I would love for you to add the Follow By E-Mail feature to your blog. It's easy to get updates that way.

So love that you adopted Jasper and Pounce, They are totally adorable kittens. I would have adopted them myself. We have 9 (yes, 9 cats) here already though so I'll just enjoy yours through photos.

Adorable little guys. I know they are so happy being cared and loved by you.

I found a tiny new male kitten in my yard? how it got there I don't know. I have an older very jealous male cat so had to take the kitten to the humane center for cats and dogs. I took a new sack of kitten food also. My sister seen it on our local TV station on pet corner which shows animals up for adoption.
I sure hope someone takes it.

I know how it is to not have a pet who you loved for many years, breaks our hearts

I'm quite sure I will never get the correct name to the right kitten,
but that Gray and White one has stolen my heart, too! (Pounce?)
They are adorable and so~o~o glad you have a pair!
Give Great time. . .after all, she was here first!
Thanks for sharing your precious new "babies" with us!
Much, much joy, dear friend!
