Uncle Hugo and Purrs for Mattie

Our Mommy recently traveled to Kingston, Ontario for her father's birthday party and on the way back, she stopped in at the local PetSmart to pick up some supplies for us.  True to form, Mommy went to look at the adoptable kitties.  As soon as she saw Hugo, she knew where he was supposed to go.

Where are you strange people taking me?
Mommy's mommy (Grandma) had recently suffered the loss of one of her beautiful kitties (Auntie Sally) to cancer, and her remaining kitty, Auntie Mattie, was lonely (I posted about her awhile ago HERE).  Mommy knew that Hugo would be the guy to fill that void.  Hugo had suffered the loss of his owner and was very traumatized and needed a calm human in his life.  Mommy knew that Grandma was the one for him, as she had great success in the past with traumatized kitties.

Auntie Mattie and Hugo did the 'who the heck are you?' dance for a couple of weeks, but they are coming around and getting to know each other.

  


Unfortunately, Auntie Mattie started to feel unwell and Grandma took her to the vet.  She has CRF and they also found a mass on her upper belly.  Grandma is awaiting the results, but as you can well imagine, she is very worried about her.


Mattie is a beautiful tortie and my Auntie and mentor, so I know she is strong, but she could REALLY use some purrs right now.  We love her very much and we so hope she can have the chance to get to know and love Uncle Hugo.


Please send purrs and good thoughts to Mattie, Hugo and our Grandma. 

Thank you!

Delilah

Welcome to handsome Hugo. It's nice to see an adult being adopted from there. Our human avoids looking at the cats when she's in PetSmart, sometimes it makes her cry. So we're thrilled Hugo has his new forever home.

Purrs and paws crossed for Mattie, though.

Oh that is too bad about Mattie. She can live a long life with renal failure. So we sure hope the lump is nothing. We sure send lots of purrs. Love Hugo. He looks like such a nice guy. We just hope that Mattie is all right. Take care.
