(One) Tabby Tuesday. . .

We were going to save this post for a Thankful Thursday, but since Kely Bray is a Brown Tabby, we said let's do it today!

You might remember Kely from our post back in June, when she and her daughter Bebe came back to live with us cuz of family problems. 

Kely and her daughter Bebe came back to live with us cuz of family problems which included a new baby and an overwhelmed new mom and allergic in-laws. Teri welcomed them back with open arms and she got a little teary-eyed when she saw them again.

Kely is Coco's mom and Bebe is one of Kely's babies! Kely is 13 years old now and Bebe is 10. They have had all their vet care and their teeth cleaned since they came back to us, and they are both in excellent health, so that's one less worry!

Teri tried introducing them to us under supervision, but they are both kinda of scared of us and well, we kinda chase them, too, so that's understandable! She said it would be nice if they could find a new forever home together, but she also thinks they would do OK if they were separated, too, depending on the home. 

Teri says that at first, even Bebe hissed and swatted at Kely, but they settled in and now are sweet and loving with each other again. 

Bebe came home for inappropriate litter box use way back in April 2010 (Click here to read more about that) and Teri let her go back to live with her mom, Kely...with a niggling thought that they might both be returned to her one day. 

She's just glad she was able to welcome them home with open arms, as that is part of her commitment to our extended family! And just a couple of weeks ago, she got a nice surprise in an email from a couple who have two kitties from us already and when they read about Kely and Bebe. . . they started talking about having one of them come to live with them!

They said 'We were hoping you could tell us more about the cats you have recently had returned to you. James and I were talking and might be amenable to trying out taking one more cat on, if you think that would be advisable. Bebe is really really cute, and we know older cats come with challenges, so we would love to hear more.'

So, sometime in September they are going to come and meet Kely and Bebe and see who falls for them (and visaversa) and then will take one home (they live close by) to see who might be the best fit.

Teri is wondering if it might not be best for both Kely and Bebe to go together for this, and then they can keep whoever fits in best with their two boys, Jasper and Clover (who look a lot like Carlos and Zeuss!).

But however it works out, Teri will be there with advice and help and of course, take her back if she is not happy there. . .

So, as you can imagine, Teri is very happy to know that a family who already love and take very good care of two of our cats is thinking of adopting an older kitty now. . . she says she doesn't have to worry 'Is this a good home' cuz she already knows it is! Just look at these cute pix of Jasper and Clover with their Cat Dad!

(It's funny, but they said that just like Carlos and Zeuss... Jasper (the orange one) is the most outgoing and confident, and Clover (the brown tabby and white one) is a little fraidy cat and slower to warm up to strangers. 


  1. This sounds like it would be an awesome home for one of these kitties! (I wish both...)

  2. We hope this works out for all of the kitties, it's such an upheaval to move homes, but it's wonderful that you always take them back without question and even better that both may get a chance of a wonderful home.

    We have had a word with our ape and wondered if we should all call it quits with the invoicing, it does seem that ear plug costs and laptop repair costs may be equal now. In future, we will put our paws over the ape eyes whenever we drop by to visit and possibly even duct tape up her mouth. We know this might be a bit harsh, but really, the noise she makes is horrific.

    Thank you for your comments for Tigger he was an amazing old fella

  3. we are so glad you follow up with your "kids". we got our paws crossed that everything works out with this family!!

  4. I kind of wish the nice people would take both kitties. They are so adorable!I know you will guide them, and you know what will be best.

  5. That is such a huge commitment to take kitties back if they don't work out in the home where they have been placed, but our mom says she would do exactly the same if she was a foster mom. She's fallen in love with Jasper. Yes, she knows he's one of the kitties who already has a home. Hope his Mom and Dad decide to take both kitties home when they come to visit. Four mouths vs. three mouths to feed isn't much. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. Gee, it has been a busy time at your place.
    We purr this nice couple will want to take another(or two) kitties to their home :)
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger, JJ and Julie

  7. They are super adorable! We hope their new potential family falls in love with both cause Kely & Bebe seem like good furriends, and we need as many of those if life that we can get. Good luck!

    We have a good chuckle when we see Carlos's name. We have a Carl (his full name is Carlos Raphael Camaro) and we don't know any other feline Carloses except yours and ours.


Thanks everso for stopping by. We love visitors!
