Tolstoy comes home

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
Today we welcomed Pawra Tolstoy (Tolly) into our home and hearts.

He will be 3 years old in December and has had a very traumatic week. Lily's breeder sold him as a kitten to a lady who absolutely adored him. Sadly, she died unexpectedly last week. She and Tolstoy lived alone. The poor little soul has been alone, then taken to the breeder's home (they are her children for life when she breeds them ) now he has found himself in our home.

He is not quite as secure as Lily - he's a little nervous of noises. But he's lovely and such a lovebug.

Here he is

Tolly in his carrier when we first got home (looking a little scared)

After a little while familiarising himself - he made friends with daddy

Then he climbed up on my lap and decided to make himself at home

After which he moved over to the sofa where daughter was sitting and decided it was time for a wash

Followed by a bit more fuss

Then he posed for a photo - he is a very handsome boy

What a lovely outcome to such a sad story. It looks like Tolstoy is fitting it very well.

I just love Singapura's, and if Tolly is anything like little Lily, I'm sure he'll make a wonderful companion.

I my God, he is absolutely BEAUTIFU! i LOVE all of the pictures of him, but I just adore the one with his little tongue out. I'm so sorry that he lost his original, mother, but I'm so happy that he found a loving new home to go to. He's WONDERFUL!

Chris - you are so right - Tolly just walked into the living room and hubby said "hello.....no which one are you?"

Tolly thanks everyone so much and say "YIOW" (his favourite word today) to Chris, Eilcon, lovemycodygirl and Susie.

Vespacat - thank you. Although I think all kitties are special and love my indoor/outdoor girls to bits, Singapuras have a special attraction for me. They really are into everything though. Tolly and Lily seem to have hit it off straight away. They are brother and sister, although not from the same litter.

Hope - thank you. I know how much you like Singapuras and thought of you when the breeder phoned us last week and told us of poor Tolly.

Tracey & Amy - thank you. Amy - Tolly is a Singapura.

You are going to have to start doing what I do with the black cats - color coded collars. I can tell them apart if they are sitting still - but when they fly by, I need the colors to figure out who is in trouble.

Thank you Tracey, Linda, Dan & Lei.

I can't wait to get a photo of them side by side - then you can see how much bigger than Lily he is. They'll have to stop chasing around at top spped first though.

Although we know she is small, we are used to her size now. When we got to the breeder's house yesterday and she bought Tolly in, we just couldn't get over the size difference.

Oh yes - they hit it off instantly . He's very considerate of her because she is so much smaller than him. If he charges around the corner and she's not ready, he'll stop and wait for Lily to finish what she's doing.

We have a long box that the garden parasol came in, we had chopped four big circles into it for Lily to play with. Last night they took turns with one being in the box and one outside, catching each other's legs as they went by.

In the car when he was Yiowing, Lily would let out a little miaow and poke her paw out of the carrier. When they could see each other, he stopped yiowing for a minute.

They did have a boisterous moment last night when he split the catnip bag and got himself high on catnip - I think he charged a bit quickly then and she got worried; but that didn't last long.

Aww, Beth! Tolly is gorgeous! He certainly seems to be making himself at home!

That is wonderful that Lily and Tolly are getting on so well and so soon! You must be so pleased!

The last picture would definitely look great in your signature!

Welcome Mr Tolstoy!

He looks like he has settled in just fine - and is very lucky to have found you and your family. It is really sweet that he and Lily are getting along - at least he has some company and can get over his traumatic week

I am looking forward to seeing some more pictures of him, he's very handsome IMO!
