The Newest Monkey

Yes, you read correctly - our Monkey family is about to get bigger!



Most of you know that Delilah, Bella and I live with Mommy in an average-sized one bedroom apartment and  Sweet Pea and Gabriel live with their Daddy in a small apartment down the street.  Bella had her claws stolen from her by her previous owners, and because Deli and I still have our claws and Mommy once found a bit of blood on Bella, she decided that it would be better for Bella's safety to keep her separated from us during the day when Mommy is at work.

Bella has the whole bedroom and en suite bathroom to herself.  When Mommy is home to supervise, the doors are opened and Bella is free to roam with us.  I actually think that Bella is quite happy alone in her palace, but Mommy worries that she might get lonely.


SO, when our Grandma told Mommy that she wanted a new cat to keep Aunt Mattie company (our sweet Auntie Sally passed away a little while ago), Mommy went straight to Petfinder to look for a companion for Mattie near where Grandma lives.

Instead of finding a cat for Grandma, Mommy ended up finding this guy and was so taken by his photo that she immediately applied to adopt him as Bella's new boyfriend.


Mommy is going to drive to Gatineau (where he currently is staying) on Thursday to meet him and pick him up.  His name is Grimlin (although Mommy thinks he may tell her a new name) and you can read his Petfinder profile by clicking HERE.

Grimlin also had his claws stolen by his previous owners so he will stay with Bella when Mommy goes to work.  He was rescued by the SPCA of Montreal from a hoarding situation and then transferred to the SPCA of Western Quebec because there wasn't enough room at the SPCA here.  Of course we will keep you updated with photos when he gets here.

We are all hoping that Bella loves him as much as we think she will!

Oh, are we ever behind on the news! But we did see Grimlin on FB yesterday and he is handsome. We hope this works out for Bella and all of you.

Oh how exciting. I knew yesterday when I saw that you liked this kitty that it would become a Monkey. He has the same expression as Bella so they should make great roomies. Samson, not to worry, you are still the head guy around there. Can't wait to see pictures.

Ohhhh...we hope things work out between Bella and Grimlin. :)

Fuzzy Tales said...

Congratulations, we hope all works out well!

We're confused, though...We thought you meant to find a good kitty companion for your grandma's cat! LOL. So while Grimlin will have his forever home, what about a companion for Mattie? :-)

Wow, Grimlin is such a handsome mancat! And he sounds super sweet, too. We have paws and fingers crossed that he and Bella will become fast friends.

THANK YOU for adopting. :)

Wowee! Concatulations you guys (and girls)! A new brofur and companion for Bella. He is so adorably grumpy looking. A male version of Bella in gray.

I hope all goes smoothly and that the new addition will be a great fit into your expanded furmily.

Grimlin is a cutie. I also hope that Bella likes him.
