I'm Off!

Thankyou for your purrs. They worked! Harry and I came through our surgeries smoothly, and are recovering really well. My surgical site is on my flank, which is something my foster mum has not seen before. Usually, they are on the belly.The incision is tiny, too.

Guess what else? I have a new family, and they are absolutely lovely!!!!!! They spent well over an hour talking with my foster mum and dad and getting to know me. They were keen to learn a lot about me and my personality, and my foster mum thought that was excellent. They had been to meet a few different kittens at some of the shelters, and were looking for the right kitten rather than a cute kitten. That was very important to my foster parents.

As well as my mum and dad, I am getting a new big brother. His name is Gomez. He is five, ginger, and he is from Canada! My dad (who is Canadian) and my mum met him when they were living on Vancouver Island. When they moved back to Australia, Gomez came with them. And guess what else! The place where I have been living with my foster parents is next door to a suburb named Canada Bay!!!! I think that's more than a coincidence!

Gomez and I will be inside kitties. I will live next door to a national park, with big windows to watch all the birds. That is one of my favourite hobbies, so I am very happy to have some quality vantage points. My dad is a firm believer in the magic of the box, so I will have an endless supply!

Fui sealed the deal for me. It was very important for my mum and dad that they brought a kitten into their home who had some experience with other cats, and seeing how well Fui had prepared me got me some major points. My mum said that Gomez loves everybody and believes everybody loves him, so we are all hoping that this will help make our introduction smooth.

My foster mum said that if she had heard much more from my mum and dad, she would have asked if she could go home with them too! They promised to stay in touch, so my foster mum will be able to let you know my real name and see how pretty I grow up to be!:)

Thankyou for being my friends:)
Love from the Kitten Formerly Known as Hermione.

Oh we are so pleased for you ~ and we are comforted by the fact that despite being a "Christmas kitten" your new family took so much trouble to find out about you and make sure you'd settle in with them. You couldn't have a better present than a loving forever home. We can't wait to here your new name and to hear how you've been getting on.
Love and smoochies to you. Be happy little one, yoo deserve the very best.

Merry Chrismouse to yoo all xxx

Angel and Kirby said...

Congratulations,Hermione! That is the best present any kitty could ask for. WE will miss you but know you will be loved. Gomez sounds like he will be a wonderful big brother.

God Speed, sweet baby girl!

Daisy said...

Hooray for you, Hermione! It sounds like it was a match made in heaven. I wish you a long life filled with love and happiness with your new family.

That's just like an orange tabby to think the world loves him. I speak from experience! ;)

We're glad you have a forever home, but hope you will get to keep your lovely name.

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Yippee!! What a wonderful thing to hear about for the holidays, that you've found your forever home!

borisandgracie said...

Oh and... even if Hermione is used to other kitties, Gomez might still have problems with her at first. I'm sure you stressed this to her new parents. But just in case things don't go smoothly at first, feel free to direct them to catster, so we can reassure them that spoiled rotten orange cats might pretend not to like kittens, but will eventually go "aw shucks, this baby's ok by me!"

We're sorry that we're a bit late, but we are so pleased that Hermione has a forever home for Christmas. BTW her incision sounds a lot like mine (Tasha), and I healed up nicely without any complications.
