Former Foster Friday - Miss Lyra, the kitten formerly known as Tawny


Allie and Jeff are friends of Kathleen; Maxwell and Ducky's mom.  They were looking for a new kitten to add to their life, and were huge fans of long haired black kittens. Both Kathleen and I were hopeful that she would adopt Lena and Glim, but Allie was really only ready to take on one kitten at the moment.  Because of the uncertainty of well maybe... Allie and Jeff stopped by the house to visit with all of the kittens. I talked to them for a while, gave them my spiel of why two kittens are better, but I accept that only kittens can do just fine if the owners are aware of what they are getting into.

I left the two of them alone with the kittens (how I did not listen in on the dropcam I have NO idea) and after a while they settled on Tawny.  I was pleased she had found a home, but left the door open that if they changed their minds and wanted someone different that was fine too.  The kittens were scheduled to be neutered and the adoption day was scheduled and Tawny it was to be. Allie and Jeff couldn't be happier, but I'll let her words explain it.


She's been really great and settled in quite nicely. She loves being around us at all times and will follow us around the house to make sure she is always in the room with one of us at least, and prefers when we are all together. She is quite playful and VERY curious - which was to her downfall when she decided to see what this shower situation was all about. NOT a happy kitten but she seemed to get over it quickly and is still a little peeved when we deem it necessary to leave her and use the shower as she waits right outside it.

Also quite a cuddler, when she feels like it - usually at 4 am when the machine gun of a purr wakes us up until she settles in and sleeps on our faces for an hr or so - can be annoying - but so worth it. I haven't heard Jeff say the word "adorable" more in my life. she's a wonderful addition to the family and I thank you for raising such a loving little one.

Sounds like my Tawny is doing just beautifully, and Miss Lyra is loved and happy.


Thank you for the update Allie.. I oh so appreciate it.

  3. Oh my word, she is getting cuter! I love the photo of her sleeping on the weight. There seems to be something attractive about yoga mats and weights to kitties.
