Congratulations to Dori and her daddy, Nikolas, on another year with the Wonderpurr Gang! They arrived along with mom, Annie, Dori’s twin sister, Patsy, and panfur brothers Kepurr and Kopea. All found homes, but only Nik and Dori stayed with us. Below are a couple of Then and Now photos, as well as a look back on Dori and Nik’s family, 2013.
From the start I had a feeling Annie wasn’t motherly material. While Nikolas played with the kittens, Annie camped in her tall cat tree and watched, as though disinterested. She was friendly, and yet aloof.
Sisters! Sisters! Both were afraid, but Dori sensed we meant her no harm, while Patsy was ready to shed some blood. Any guesses on which kitten is Dori?
Dori had a calming effect on her wild brothers. Oh look! There’s Patsy peeking at you.
Kopea was a bit more wary of human kindness, but he too eventually simmered down.
Brothers will be brothers…even as they are walking out the door to their Forever Home.
From the beginning, Nikolas was a great daddy. He played with his kittens, and could be equally as kittenish himself. One of his favorite games was for me to pull him around on a long carpet, like he was Aladdin. He even got Dori to ride with him.
Patsy started out as a feisty little girl who had me and the Elmore veterinarian staff jumping back to avoid being scratched. But then something happened. She got it. She got that no one was trying to harm her, and she settled down into a sweetheart with a charming personality. Below is my favorite Patsy video:
