Miss Julie becomes a south Brooklyn gal

This morning my husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Julie’s prospective parents. As soon as I laid eyes on them I knew I had made a good choice. They are youngish married couple with no pets. My biggest concern about placing Julie was how she would manage in a multi-cat household. She has already been moved around quite a bit, has lived alone for the last six months, and I wanted to keep the trauma to a minimum.

This couple had been mulling over getting a cat for some time and once John (the husband) learned about Julie via Gothamist, he contacted his wife. His wife, Nicole, in turn contacted me. After talking a little over the phone, we agreed to meet today so they could meet Miss Julie and make a final decision.

It did not take them long to decide. Julie put on a real show, chatting them up and giving them several choice glimpses of her lusciously tubby tabby tummy. What sealed the deal was Julie loving all over Nicole’s purse.

Getting Julie into the carrier was a bit of a task. She clearly did not want to go and used her bountiful bod to force her way out. This Greenpoint girl was not too keen on moving to Kensington. But after being assured she would not be exposed to any Park Slope stroller moms, Julie calmed down a bit and complied with being lowered into the carrier.

As I write this I wonder how Julie is doing at her new home. I bet she is napping away after having such an adventurous day. Her new family has promised to send me photos once Julie gets settled and I eagerly await them.

Believe it or not, Julie is one lucky cat. She got a new home. Many of her feline brethren don’t have that luxury; they languish in shelters or on the street. Like a little fella I discovered on Bad Advice today.

“Inky” is a CUTE little guy who decided the Roebling Oil Field was not for him. Certainly there is someone (other than me) who melts at the sight of that chunk of wet cat food stuck to his little black nose. Any black cat lovers out there? It’s time to step up to the plate.

UPDATE: here is a photo of Julie napping at her new digs.

Julie is beat!

Attached are two first photos of Julie comfortably napping on our couch.  She’s made herself very much at home in all our most comfortable places.  We’re already looking forward to seeing her every time we walk in the door.

  2. My brother said he’d take Inky, but after a couple days with the little scamp, I don’t know if me and the big guy are going to be able to give him up! Kittens! So cute! Even when they are afflicted with round worm. Yuck.

    So glad you found a home for Julie. She looks very happy!

  6. I actually got weepy eyed the night before Julie made her big move. I fucking love that cat. Greenpoint’s loss is Kensington’s gain I s’pose.

Tell me what you're thinking...
