Adoption Pending...*S* This is Ebony..also know as "ebs" and "ebby". She lives with a single, middle aged mom. Mom is moving and Ebby can't go along. She is between 6 and 7 years old, neutered, de-clawed and a gal who prefers a quiet environment without small children. She is also a 100% indoors cat..*VBS*
After spending some nursing time with youngest son last Thursday, and enjoying his roommates cat a great deal, I reach the decision that I would like a feline friend back in my life. It's been awhile since Tigger moved to the farm and a happier life that included outdoor. I told my DD that I was thinking in that direction, but hate to it s both DSIL and oldest DS are very allergic to cats. She said "Mom, they aren't there that often". Which is true, only once or twice a year. I wanted a slightly older cat, preferrably declawed and neutered. One that had lived with a woman, and had short hair.On Monday I got an email from my DD telling me that a co-worker of DD's moving,and Ebby isn't going with her. Told DD to find out if she was shorthair, and she is...so I've agreed to take her to be my companion..*S* I have paperwork to complete for our management company, and will need a letter from my Dr. which is the only way you can bring a pet into these townhouses... She's as good as mine....and just in time for Halloween! Posted by Picasa

What a cute looking Halloween cat! I'm considering cat adoption in the near future, too.

Sounds like it was just meant to be - good luck and lots of fun with your new 'room-mate'

Carol said...

As I always say..."It was meant to be"...that is wonderful. She is a lucky cat!

OOHHHHHH!!! I'm so happy for you, Finn! And for Ebby! You two are going to make quite the couple. What a beautiful fur coat Ebony is sporting!

Congratulations! ;-) ;-) ;-)

Angie said...

Oh Finn, I think that is one of the best things a body can do for oneself---having a furry "best friend"!!! She will let you cry on her shoulder, and you can tell her all of your secrets and she will never tell them!!! :) And she will love you unconditionally!! She is beautiful!!! So much company....I don't understand households like some of my family without one!! :) And Ebby is sooo lucky to get you for her MOM!!! :) Hugs to both of you, dear friend!!

Tazzie said...

Ohhh, how wonderful, Ebby can be your new bestest friend! She looks just like our kitty Madeline ... but Maddy is slightly ill-tempered ...
*hugs*

quiltpixie said...

what a lovely cat. I'm sure both of you will provide companionship for each other.

Gail said...

Good going, Finn, much happiness with your new friend.

Dawn said...

Oh finn! she is gorgeous! And looks so great against that rug on your floor!

Pam said...

Ebby is so pretty, Finn you will so enjoy having a pal around to keep you company and make you laugh! Congrats

KCQuilter said...

Ebby is a stunner! Congratulations on the adoption! I so enjoy my two kitties and know you will love Ebby's companionship. Rocky and Natasha follow me around like little puppies! Ebby's fur is so gorgeous.

cher said...

a match made in heaven then..meant to be. what wonderful company Ebs will give you and new stories to share as well...glad this seems to be working out!

Aw what a sweetie and good of you to take Ebony in--perfect name, by the way. It sounds like a perfect fit with your DD's blessing. Take their meds when they happen to come visit, you are the one that lives there all the time.

BTW, much the same philosophy I used about a picture that hung in our living room just because a friend of DJs gave it to us--who is here the other 360 some days of the year? The pic is in his bedroom now.

You know that they have studies that show petting a cat can lower blood pressure and raise your spirits in medically measurable ways! She looks liek a lovely girl and so petite and sweet. I know that having a companion will be great for you! Your kids can just take some anti-histimines and suck it up for a few days. DD sounds like a great daughter!

So happy to hear about Ebby! You know that the British say a black cat is good luck? I know my little gal, Penny, has brought us lots of loving and we call that good luck!!!

Congratulations!

Rabbit Stitchings said...

Fiona said...

Brilliant - obviously just meant to be! And a lucky black cat too!

Libby said...

Yeah for Finn and Ebony -- looks like a match made in heaven *s*

paula, the_quilter said...

I have been thinking along the same lines. It's been several years of no pets. I've been working on CarGuy about an animal. Congratulations on the new addition to the household. /paula

Karen said...

What would the letter from the doctor say?

Jeanne said...

Oh, Finn, I'm so excited for you! Can't wait to start seeing Ebby-and-quilt pics!
Jeanne :)

Nancy said...

What a wonderful companion for you. I can't imagine not having a cat(or 5) in my life. :-) I suspect we'll start seeing lots of pictures of cats sprinkled in with the quilts. Heck if it's like at my house it will be the cat ON the quilts. LOL!

BTW, I had 2 kittens once. A black, A white, and a black/white. They were named Ebony (Eb), Ivory(Ivy) and Harlequin (Harley).

Tonya R said...

Wow, that's great Finn. I know you've missed having a pet. This sounds like a great opportunity for both of you. You have to have a letter from your doctor? Aiyee,sometimes these homeowners' associations are a bit much.

Sweet P said...

Ebony looks like the perfect companion. I love black cats. Don't know why, but I do like them.

sharon b said...

Ebby will be a wonderful companion.. I'm sure the first few days will be filled with adjustments for her.. But give her time.. It will be great.. We all need our fur companions.. LOwers our Blood pressure.. Keeps us smile'n.. Congrats..You'll have a new quilt partner..

Abandoned in Pasadena said...

Ebbie sounds like the perfect pet...already trained and out of the terrible kitten stage. All you have to do is enjoy her and I hear they lower blood pressures with their calming affects. She will make a wonderful companion and bring you lots of pleasure.

Hugs,
Sandy

Great, really great finn! I am happy for both of you! She looks like a cat we had for 18(?) years? We found her as a tiny fighting kitten in the woods and Mom said No way could we keep her, so don't even name her. So - we didn't - just called her Black Cat for I think 18 years! A perfectly wild cat who just adored my Dad and would happily sit on his lap for hours as long as he didn't pet her.

Cheers!

Evelyn
