We adopted 2 kitties from you on June 29. Riley had only been at the shelter for a day, he was 7 months old at the time, had been found as a stray in Hartford. Ceili, known to you as Portia, had been at the shelter for most of her life. These cats have brought so much joy and laughter to our home as they have adapted and become members of our family.
Riley has been outgoing and friendly from day 1 and is the life of any gathering we have had. He has no issues with joining in.
Ceili has been slow to join the family, as you can imagine, knowing her as well as you did. She has become a much loved member of our family and while our friends don’t know her as well as Riley, she will put in an appearance at a party although she usually doesn’t stay very long. When our son was in CT from Virginia for a visit recently she spent one on one time with him in his room of her own accord.
These 2 cats have a lively time playing together and with time are establishing their own relationship with each other. It is still evolving as Riley gets older, because while he is very energetic and loves to chase her, she has set some boundaries with him to avoid being completely bullied! She is also starting to initiate some of the chasing games! Both cats seem healthy, they are very active and eat well. We are learning their food preferences and beginning to shop accordingly.
I am attaching some pictures, which you can post on your website/facebook, as you see fit. Thanks for allowing us to be the forever family for these 2 wonderful cats.
