Our Foster Cats

Dear Readers,

It's Bono here today taking a turn at blogging. Back in September, I got adopted into the family. Tall Son finally has a lap cat - me!

I want show you the two kitties we are fostering. They are from the same group of cats I was from. Our previous person had rescued us and we lived with her for many years. When she died from cancer, we needed homes. Our present beans wanted to help us.

This is "Mike". Our beans did find a home for him, but he was not used to small kid beans and after a month he came back. Another family was interested in him, but decided not to take him. He is here with us and fitting in.

Mombean looks after a neighbor's toddler two days a week. Mike has gotten used to the small bean. It just took a little time, not long. We don't know how old Mike is, but our beans say he is at least ten years old, maybe more. Anyway, I don't think our beans are actively looking for a home for him. Mombean says he is both endearing and annoying. Well, she gets annoyed when he tips over the trash can in the kitchen. It is a big trash can, but then Mike is a big cat too, and capable of getting into lots of trouble like that. Not me, though, I only get into the trash when Mike knocks it over. See Moe in the background? He's in the napping box.

The other foster cat is Cookie. Yep, from the same group. He is a handsome senior tabby.

However, he has some health issues, but is doing fine. Our beans are not trying to find a home for him. He is quiet and spends a lot of time napping in mombean's office chair. It must be because she has a cozy pad on it. Only drawback is - Mindy doesn't like him. She simply avoids him and won't go near him. That means she eats her meals off by herself and has mom catering to her. A bit of a diva kitty isn't she?

So there you have it - five of us kitties. Mindy and Moe are the two tabbies on our header. They are brother and sister, now nearly eight years old and our bean's first cats. They used to have dogs before us.

Thanks for reading about us,
Hugs from Bono (aka Bon Bon)

How nice of your mom to foster (we think in this case you mean adopt) a couple more kitties in need of homes.

Wow, Bono, thank you so much for introducing us to Mike and Cookie. How sweet of your beans to take care of them. We understand how hard it is to take care of multiple animals. We are glad you have such a loving family.

Your mom is so nice to take in Mike and Cookie. Maybe you should give Cookie a chance, Mindy. He might be lots of fun.
