Aloe and Aaron's Adoption Account



Before we get to the adoption account, I wanted to share with you a few photos before they left. I was watching them run around before they went to be neutered and realized that they were reminding me of ring-tailed lemurs


Sorry guys, I know you look a little perturbed that I posted your rear end on the internet, but you know you think it is your best side.

So I took a couple hours off from work to run the kittens up to the shelter for their adoption. I decided to pack a few of their favorite toys and send them along so their transition would be easier. I met their mom Meghan and let her meet her new kitties and she was smitten. The shelter has paperwork and some counseling to do with each person who adopts so I grabbed my new kittens and headed back home then back to work. By the time I got back to work there were photos.


Meghan told me that she believes Aloe's name was supposed to be Abe. Have to say, that makes a LOT more sense than Aloe, which was such a weird name for a kitten. Shortly after the adoption, Meghan announced their new names.

These are some pretty great kittens, and they're huge fans of the under-bed closet.
In Cambodian, the phrase (and forgive the rough anglification) "bontek bontuik" means "a little bit." May I introduce Bontek (with more white - Aloe) and Bontuik (gray tiger - Aaron). A little bit of kitty and a great big pile of awesome.
I've already spent my first 30 minutes wishing I could get up to rescue dinner from burning but feeling like only a monster would disrupt the purring, nose-licking, belly-showing kitten furnace lying on my chest. It's love, y'all.
Love indeed. I'm so glad it is working out. Although I did recommend she buy a faster camera 😸 because Bontek is only still when he is sleeping (and then sometimes not even then)
