Cleopatra & Cricket in their new home…

Simon reports: “The past two days have been wonderful for us and the woodpile kittens. Eli has led the way with getting Cricket and Cleopatra comfortable with us and their new home. He spent yesterday and today gently but persistently staying in their room and interacting with C&C. They have turned a corner and are sitting on the kids’ laps accepting attention. We are so proud of Eli and we love the kitties … As you can see from the photos, Cricket and Cleo are taking to their new friends.”

These pix, shared by Cleopatra and Cricket’s new family, show the transforming power of patience and love. The kids knew instinctively that spending time with the kittens in their safe space was the best way to draw them out of fear and into family. And one thing is really clear: this is a family of true cat people.

I hope that the success story of our Woodpile Kittens inspires others to take a chance, and help change the fate of a semi-wild or abandoned animal. The shelters are full of creatures in need, and sometimes you hear a call to service right in your own backyard.
