Yours in celebrating the New Year with new kitties,

Phillip-ARLIt sure didn’t take us long to “start filling up the holes” left by Jonny and more recently Mikey. Although we all know they will never be replaced entirely.

That said, Billy and I proudly present: Phillip!

Age: 6 years, 4 weeks
Gotcha Day: Saturday, December 20, 2014
Weight: A ton (actually, it’s 13.5 lbs.) He makes two of Billy, and is the largest kitty we have ever had in our whole lives. Seriously!
Length: Who knows? But I’d guess 25 inches.
Meow: Yes, but barely. It’s a very faint, tiny one; sounds almost like a kitten.
Breed: He’s listed at the Shelter as a Domestic Long Hair; someone I know suggested he might be a Main Coon. (If anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know.)

We’re all slowly settling in.

Tummy: Oh, yes! Sunday, he was comfortable enough that he rolled onto his side and let me see all the floof on his tummy!

I got him from the Animal Rescue League Shelter in Des Moines (a 2 hour drive from us). Because she was in ill-health, he was surrendered to the Shelter by his previous owner November 22, 2014, and put up for adoption November 23, 2014. (Mikey went to the Rainbow Bridge November 24, 2014.)

I’ll take pictures later. Right now, though, I’m trying not to spook him too much as he was somewhat skittish (noises) when I got him. Frankly, the Shelter spooked me a bit, too.

Lots of commotion going on that day, as in addition to sales on pet adoptions, they were having a “Spa Day for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs”. Droves of parents and kids were coming in for the special prices.

And this Shelter is so big and has much more traffic compared to our shelter.

Note: There may also be another 4-pawer joining us in about a week. He’s at a different shelter so if weather holds I’m going to go meet him next weekend (as in December 27.)

Yours in sharing the love again,

and “The Boys”
