I know, I know, I don't look like Circe, but the Monkeys' Mommy thought I would be the perfect spokescat to talk about Circe - a cat who is a current resident at Chrystal's Rescue in Illinois.
As most of you know, I too stayed at Chrystal's before The Monkeys adopted me. I never had the pleasure of actually meeting Circe nose-to-nose, but if I had, I know I would have been knocked off my kitten paws by her gorgeousness!
Look at that coat...that face! What a stunning ladycat.
To learn more about this gorgeous girl you can see her PetFinder profile HERE, and Chrystal's blog post about her is HERE.
Circe has been at Chrystal's for a long time. Don't get me wrong, Chrystal's is a wonderful refuge that is filled with lots of love, but it can't compare to the joy of finding your forever home. Circe was quite contented to stay there and not look for her forever home until very recently. While she's always been friendly with other cats, she only recently became open to new people. Personally, I think that she must have sensed that her future family is now looking for her, so she had to make herself more visible so that they can find her. I am happy to help her with this task. Hopefully her new family is reading our blog and recognizes her right away.
Don't let the fact that she's in Illinois discourage you from moving ahead with adopting Circe or any of the adoptable cats at Chrystal's rescue. I was brought all the way to Montreal, Canada from Chrystal's so we know it can be done. If she's your future cat, let us know and we will do what we can to find a way to get her to you. It'll be so worth it.
It has been 15 weeks since my last steroid treatment for allergies and I am still symptom-free!
This calls for a nip banana celebration, dontcha think?
Mommy is beyond thrilled. She says my floof is looking much healthier and less dull. I even have the kitten tufts around my ears coming back.
Speaking of kitten tufts, Sweet Pea and Gabriel's Daddy likes mine so much, that he has immortalized me in a painting of me as a kitten! It is still unfinished, but I'll let you all have a sneak peek of it...
When it's done, Mommy gets to hang that up on her wall and look at me ALL the time! That is, when she's not looking at the real me!
We have been receiving an incredibly high volume of traffic since yesterday. We didn't realize why (since we had not posted in a while) until we heard the sad news that Davey Jones of The Monkees had passed away. We send purrs to his family. He died far too soon.
Even though we're all Monkeys, they spell their band name with two 'e's. To visit their site, click HERE!
Mommy is a fan of the other Monkees, but claims that is not the reason she calls us that. Delilah and I are even more confused than we used to be! Here is a rerun of our Friday Funnies comic from a few years ago. Sweet Pea and Gabriel's Daddy did all the drawing:
