On June 22, you kindly posted my Fort Collins cat bleg here, wherein I hoped someone would give a home to my father’s fabulous and lonely kitties. One of your readers, Keith, generously offered his home to them both (I think he was suckered by the beautiful Mandalay and took Flash as her companion), so we made the arrangements. Keith’s home is in another city, so the two kitties got another exciting trip across the country via the airlines — flying cats! Attached is a bad photo of Flash, wearing his temporary collar and suspicious that something’s up. He undoubtedly deafened anyone who handled his carrier for the entire trip.
Both cats arrived safely at Keith’s, and Mandalay promptly disappeared, demonstrating her master-class hiding skills. Flash explored, but mostly demanded petting. A couple of weeks later, Keith reports the cats are
“…doing really well. Taken over the house to an extent, as the existing ones stick to different areas of the house (although they all feed together without incident). Flash and my smaller cat hiss at each other, but they rarely cross paths. Mandalay is extremely social with everyone, and surprisingly loves being around my alpha (who is a giant black cat cat). This is a shot [attached] I took of them a couple of hours ago; Flash shot outside, so I gave everyone some supervised outdoor time (an angry bird scared them indoors)…they both look capable of climbing fences, so they don’t get to stay outside for long.”‘
Sometimes there are happy endings, so I wanted to thank Balloon Juice readers for everything they do for pets in need.
