Sunday we move into a hotel again, and then we'll be in hotels until October 14th, at the very least, because the closing date on our new home in our new city is October 13th. The boys have lived in hotels for that long before, when they moved from Germany back to Canada. We don't think I've ever done that, so it will be a new experience for me!
So some of you read on Merlin's Facebook page that we might be getting a new sister in the new year. Yes, it's true. You see, before I came along, when the boys weren't blogging any more, they had a little sister named Arwen. We haven't talked about her yet because our mom still gets really teary eyed thinking about her. You see, they lost Arwen when she was 2.5 years old, in January 2015, to Feline Infectious Peritonitis. But Arwen came from a very good breeder who has a health guarantee on all her kittens for five years, and after she removed Arwen's parents from her breeding lines, she offered up a new kitten whenever our humans were ready. Well, before that happened, our humans met me, a Sphynx in need of a new home, and so they rescued me. Of course, the offer for the new kitten was still open. We were going to get a new little sister in November of this year, but the litter that the breeder had that would have been 4 months old in November didn't have any tortoiseshells or calicos in it, and our mom is holding out for one of those, don't ask me why! The breeder anticipates some torties or calicos in her next litter, though, and the kittens from that litter would be old enough in January to come to their new homes, so that's when we might get a new family member. Another Sphynx, because our dad is allergic to furred cats.
This was Arwen:
