Flirting and Homecoming Cartoons

For the last day of Cat Adoption month, we describe our own adoptions! In the pictures below, I explain how brazen flirtation + pleadings resulted in a great adoption! 
- Peaches the Cat

This is the very first pic of me on Petfinder...taken by a talented photographer named Tara at Marys Kitty Korner.. My human fell in love with me instantly. I have to confess...I WAS flirting with the Petfinder photographer!



This pretty white Connecticut house, Marys Kitty Korner,  was our temporary home after our narrow escape from the NYACC Kill shelter in NYC.  We lucked out!



I stationed myself in the sunniest window in the house near 

the entrance so I could take sunbaths AND monitor visitors!







I made sure I was noticed by various "purr-formances" I gave



This is my sis-fur Paprika in the next room , always with the "woe is me" countenance.  I'm not too fond of this approach. Luckily she has ME to entice all the visitors!



Admittedly, we were both lucky to end up in these temporary digs...they even have a sun & playroom for us cats!



Finally it is time for an all out PLEA!




 A few last "moves" may be the clincher!


The "Pitch"!



Finally the time arrived, and we became "chosen cats!"



Once in our new digs, we wondered...was it fur good?


My first portrait at chez Carol!




RESOLVED! We're staying! Being allowed to explore was a very good sign!


Thanks to Marys Kitty Korner for keeping us happy and healthy during our wait for our Furever Home!!!

This weekend we are going to join Athena & Marie's Caturday Art hop And Cat on My Head's Sunday Hop!  Happy weekend to all!

Mary's Kitty Korner sounds like a great place for cats to stop for a while on the way to their forever homes. I'm glad you girls found such a great home! :)

Peaches, you pitched purrfectly! You should seriously consider giving lessons to shelter cats on how to put their best paw forward. And we know all too well about those flirty squiggles! MOL.

Peaches and Paprika said...

I've been telling my human that for some time but she refuses to let me go back to the shelter!!! I should be earning the "big bucks!" - MOL - Peaches the cat

That Miss Tara captured your true beauty fur sure! The poses worked like a charm too! You were experts at marketing yourselves! Your momma sure struck the jackpot with you. Purrs. -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews
