Mitten Monday


This is going to be a VERY exciting week. 
 
Did you know that in a few days is *shhhh* Valentines Day?  I've got my hopes up that I get to spend a bit of time with my favorite mancat, Alfie Marshall.  I just love his accent when he meows!
 
We had a great weekend here at Casa de Cory.  Nigel had his 4th Gotcha Day!  We adore him. 
 
When he first arrived here he was a mess.  He was so afraid of everything and everyone.   Now he spends most of his time out and about with us.
 
Mom loves him so much because he reminds her of our our guardian angel Jonathan.   Jonathan was the master of the sustained meow...one long note held out to emphasize what ever he really wanted.   Nigel does the same exact thing.   Mom thinks they may be somehow related...which makes her all the more in love with Nigel.
 
I was Jonathan's favorite.  We were so close and I loved him beyond meows.  He was like a father to me.
 
I love Nigel, but not the same way. Maybe Nigel is like an uncle to me.

What a lovely post about a very special One Who Came Before. We were very honoured when you allowed us to name one of our foster kittens after him. We understand from the shelter that when he was adopted, his new family chose to keep the name :)

Cory, our Rupert is so much like TOWCB Dustdevil that she swears it's reincarnation! We hope Alfie meows lovely little nothings into your pretty ears, and tell Bennette that Sylvester is polishing up his tuxedo!
