I do indeed Rachel
We went to pick them up on 26th of July 2001, our friend Sandy gave us a lift. We refer her as Aunt Sandy, she's aunt to our cats, not to us
. Anyway, we went to pick them, they we're running around there with each other and their sister, and their mommy and daddy came to sniff us.
We had seen all of them before of course, and those cat parents seemed to accept us immediately, they didn't mind us petting them, nor touching their kittens. We made up our minds to take the only black one there (there was 3 kittens, 1 male, black, and 2 females, both tabbies like Kitty) and the other tabby girl.
We were chatting with the owner, and were trying to pet the running kitties, but it was pretty hard. Then it was time to grab the ones we wanted and go home. It felt a bit cruel to just take them away from their parents, but... On the car back home, C & K just kept meowing, it broke my heart... I tried to talk to them and calm then down, but it made them meow even more
At home then, we showed first the litterbox, and the food, but they weren't interested. They just stayed in the transportation box and stared at us. This continued first few days, they did come out to go to the litterbox and eat, but that was all, they slept alot. Everytime we wanted to touch them, we got this huge HIISSSSSS back, it was hilarious. We didn't give up though, and now they love us touching them, and being held.
I remember their first meal, I was almost crying when they finally accepted food and milk... Now, everything goes smoothly with them...
Here's the first pics of them when at home, they both went into that corner...
And here are the first ever pics taken of Casper and Kitty:
