Mom and kitten left Kentucky late Wednesday morning and made a 9 hour drive to Durham, NC. Our Aunty Torchy lives there, so mom and kitten stayed at her place. Nancy and Tom drove in from Greenville, SC on Friday and picked the baby up late that afternoon. They were totally smitten with him!
Mom said she shed some tears when she put kitten, who is now named Poe, in the soft sided carrier for his travels to his new forever home. She was sad to see him go, but happy to see him go too. Poe is going to have the best life a kitten could wish for. Mom later heard from Nancy and she said Poe is adjusting nicely to his new home. The girl cat, Amber, didn't want anything to do with Poe. The boy cat, T.J., was very curious about Poe but Poe didn't want anything to do with him. Ree Ree, the chihuahua, was confused by a kitten that was the same size as her. And the big dog (I've forgotten her name), loves everyone but Poe was afraid of her. Hopefully they will all be used to each other soon.
Mom also sent along some kitty toys for Poe, but it seems that his favorite toy is a packing peanut that he found under the sofa! Silly kitten.
Nancy has promised to send pictures and keep mom up-to-date on Poe. We hope she will do that. We want to see him as he grows up. Everyone who has seen him thinks he has some Oriental or Siamese in his makeup. His head is more wedge shaped than round. He also has that longer body and longer legs. And his voice sounds more like a Siamese.
We have a few pictures of him to share:
Mom took this picture. Poe was yawning!
These two pictures are Poe at his forever home.
