We adopted two precious lil' four-pawed brudders.
I found them on Craigs List. Just typing that sort of weirds me out because CL can be a bit skeevy but I thought, "What the hey." I had experienced a very bad exchange with an adopter in NY. A gorgeous lil' coon boy will not get a furever home because of those nutbags but it is okay.
Because we found these guys. (These first round of pictures were taken by the first mommas.)
|Finnegan and Jasper|
They were very well loved and cared for and fit right into our home like they belonged here. Being so well adjusted and also very tightly bonded, I didn't worry too much about keeping them in their bathroom apartment for a few days. It was a relief. Initially, as you would suspect, Baxter and Cricket were having none of them. But within a week Baxter and Jasper were fast friends. Finnegan is a bit more reticent to approach the cats but he loves the dogs and has no fear around them.
Jasper has latched on to Matt and Finnegan prefers me. They are both still a bit fearful of Toby but who could blame them :) His exuberant shouts and chasing of them just to give them a hug are a bit intimidating.
We had them neutered on Wednesday and Jasper woke up like nothing had happened. Finn had a much rougher time of it but they are both right as rain now.
Here are some updated pictures of them. I'm so very happy and blessed to have them come into our lives. It has been a welcome joy.
