Yes... another one

Yes, we added number #5. As of now she is just a foster to make sure things work out, but I fell in love with one of my shelter cats, Autumn. She was a feral and very very slow to trust, as would be expected, but the big pink ‘caution while handling’ sign on her cage didn’t help people trust her for them to trust them. They declawed her hoping that, without being able to harm people, she would be adopted, but so far only two people have considered her and went on to adopt others. So, seen as I have handled ferals before, I was given that room as ‘mine’ and over the last 6 or so weeks, each week she has made a lot of progress with me. From allowing me to clean out her cage without smacking or biting, to allowing me to stroke her to sitting with me (and finally being allowed outside her cage) and then on Saturday she let me hold her in my arms and stretched up and pawed Matt when he came to pick me up… so… her she is (these are her shelter pics, I will take some as soon as she settles in)

I already told them I wanted to adopt her, they suggested fostering first... it probably wont be a long term foster situation, we already love her... just to get the boys to agree

She is 2-4 according to the vet but they have known to be wrong, she was already adult looking when the shelter got her, so he is probably right. I think some of the paw fluff is just her long hair growing back (she was shaved in areas for shots / spay and declaw) so she is probably just growing that fur back in.

Right now, Bumps seems not to be too bothered, the other 3 hissed at the carrier but they haven't spent time together to tell. Bumps sleeps with us so she will be sleeping in her intro room next door.

We are not completely sure if we will keep the name, I think she is too used to it as we do call them by name at the shelter, but he thinks we should change it, but doesn't know what to change it to

Maybe I should start a what she we call her thread, then he will dismiss every answer and call her Autumn

Congrats Eithne!

Ooh, poor baby! Stuck in a shelter and declawed on top of it... Looks like she has found her personal angel! That fur is going to shed like crazy though--just wait, you'll be vacuuming till doomsday (not that you don't already, with five cats... but y'know.)

She's beautiful. Good luck on integrating her into your family.

and more pics...

OMG is that another cat?!?!

Phew he is gone

post #19 of 54
Aww...I love those pictures you took at home! I'm going through "introductions" (still have the new one behind closed doors), so that disturbed/annoyed kitty face is pretty common around here these days. It cracks me up.

I think your new girl is just so pretty. Though I have fostered, I've never actually had a medium or long-haired kitty in any permanent way. I just adore those fluffy tabbies. As for all that hair...microfiber is where it's at.

Congrats Eithne & Matt!! Move over boys, there's a girl in your midst!

I love the look on her face when she flattens her ears back, she looks so....smug!
post #21 of 54
Oh, Eithne, what a pretty kitty. Autumn is just a sweet love. I hope she's happy with you and the boys and they accept her quickly. She's just a love.
post #22 of 54
She's a heartbreaker. I think we've all fallen in love with that little face. I love the toe puffs too!

I hope she's very happy with her new family. How exciting!

Ooh, she's so fluffy and soft looking. Should have named her Charmin - so squeezably soft.

I don't fancy trying to squeeze her to see if that is true
