I'm so happy that both kittens have been adopted together - they're two peas in a pod and enjoy each other's company to no end. I received a large number of inquiries, but most of them only wanted one. A lot of people seem to have a mental block when it comes to adopting more than one cat, thinking that it's twice as much work/trouble. They way I see it, once you have one, it's only a little more effort to take care of two, and you get twice the benefit!
It was a bittersweet moment for me, as I had been caring for them since birth, and loved both of them to bits (ok, that's a bit of a lie, the mommy cat did most of the work
). Duke, especially, is the most well-behaved, mellow kitten, happy to spend time on your lap, and the least picky eater of all the kittens. But, it wouldn't have been fair for me to keep him and split up the pair.
In any case, they are both now in their fur-ever home: a couple who loves pets, whom I got a great vibe from during our meeting. They had a pair of cats as well, one of which recently passed and they were looking for a new companion for him. They realized the importance of keeping them together and stepped up to make it happen, which I'm very thankful for.
I'm sad to see them go, but happy they found a wonderful home.
I'm left with mommy cat Newt, and the adventurous trouble-maker, Newton, which I think I'll keep to keep mom company.
