Terrific Adoption News!

King and Murphy have been adopted! They were the two handsome longhaired black cats mentioned in an earlier post who lived together in a room with the lovely, lovable (to humans, that is) black cat named Claire.

Let's just say that -- according to the following report from their new adoptive parents (and the pic above) -- King and Murphy are adjusting VERY WELL!

..."I wanted to drop you a quick note b/c I know you’ll be happy to hear that the fellas are doing great! We’ve got them set up in our bonus room right now, which is a large room so they have plenty of space to run around and play. We were planning on letting them out of the room in a few days to explore the rest of the house but they’ve acclimated so well we are going to do it today.

When we first got to the house, King came right out of the carrier and walked around like he owned the place. He immediately explored the room, ate, used the litter, and was playing, purring, and grooming within an hour. Murphy came right out of the carrier too, looked around, and then settled under a chair for the next hour. But then he was up and exploring and playing as well. Towards the end of the day Murphy would run right up to us whenever we came into the room and he would rub all on our legs while purring. This morning was more of the same, they both run to us when we enter the room and rub on us and purr. Both of them allowed us to brush them and seemed to enjoy it.

We really can’t believe how quickly they’ve made themselves at home. We were worried about Murphy but he’s really taken a liking to his new environment and seems very happy. He purrs loudly whenever we pet him. King too.

Thanks again for your help in the process. We’re very happy that this is working out so far."

Congrats King and Murphy! Kevin and I are so happy for you!!!!
