Well, there is good news coming from the former Felons’ new home – and I do mean ‘new home’ because the decision has been made formally to adopt the kittens. Their names have been changed. Though they were, I think, beginning to understand that I was calling them, I don’t believe that they knew their distinct names, so receiving different ones will hardly confuse them. Oleo is now Smudge, and Bisto is Scout.
Interestingly, their behaviour with their new family reflects their personalities as I saw them emerging here. Scout has been more ready to accept the new people in his life, already cuddling with them, while Smudge is more reticent, but obviously is starting to enjoy himself because his trade-mark purr is loud and clear.
And here’s a gift from their new people: an Instagram page has been made for the kittens. Those wanting to look at it will likely have to copy and paste this address, as I am not sure how to make it interactive. Nonetheless, you can see the objects of your curiosity here:
Just because I have a couple of left-over pictures of my favourite escapees, I’ll end with them. From now on, the little ones will have others taking their photographs, and that is as it should be.
