Miles and Treads were Gonzo and Peanut

Back in 2003 I fostered a mom, Charlie,  who gave birth at my hosue.  She had five kittens, and one of them was painfully small.  He was less then two ounces when he was born.  I called him Peanut.  His siblings were the first set I picked a group name and oddly enough the names all worked for their personalities.  They were Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie.

I fell hard and fast for my little Peanut, as you can well imagine.  He is he center of my favorite kitten picture.  At the time I could not adopt him and he went up for adoption with his siblings.  A very nice couple came in and were originally thinking of adopting an older kitty, but in the end went with my Peanut and Gonzo.    I begged her to keep in touch with me and let me know how he was doing. 

She did for several years.She had changed their names to Miles (for Gonzo) and Treads ( for Peanut, because he has a few extra toes) but we lost touch. I often wonder after them and how they are doing. 

Well a few minutes ago she commented on an old post and wanted to let me know that Miles and Treads are doing well.  IMMD.


  1. Oh my gosh what a great picture! Nice to hear they are well :-)

  2. That's wonderful that she's given you an update now.

    "Peanut" was aptly named at the time. The mom can see why you fell for him, such a tiny, precious little thing.
