UPDATE on Hattie/Pierrot -- now Olive!
Readers -- Pierrot ... renamed Hattie ... is now Olive and has found a home! You may remember her as the last unadopted kitten of the group of five kittens and a mamma cat found in a backyard in September.
Here is a letter from her new mom:
"Shy little Olive is doing well. I've been working with her a lot and she's gradually getting more confident with Adam and me. She's still not a huge fan of our other cat, Xavier, who is a little too outgoing for her taste. She's making slow but steady progress: in the past week she's slept on the bed with Xavi there too, ventured out of the bedroom for the first time, and even licked baby food off my finger with Xavi mere inches away. (She really will do pretty much anything for that baby food.) ... [s]he's gradually starting to fit in around here and I'm really glad to have her as part of the family."
Big giant purrs to everyone who was involved with this rescue, and to Nora and Adam, Olive's new people, and ESPECIALLY to Xavi the cat, who has had to put up with this new baby sister!
