I'm sorry to say that this update today isn't an entirely happy one. As Cori will explain in the story, she lost one of her IBKs. Knowing how much Cori loved her boys, I know this left a big hole in her heart. And though her boy can never be replaced, her heart (and home) is full again, thank goodness.
Here's the update.
Happy 10 year anniversary! So very grateful for you and all you do matching kitties with their forever humans. I can't tell you how much my little Livermore twins mean to me. It broke my heart when Elvis (formerly Davy) passed two years ago. He fought to stick with Us as long as he could, but in the end, Albert and I had to let him go. I get teary still. He was a one and a million cat.
Albert and I spent the next year healing our hearts and in a story too long to tell in this update, ended up with a stray cat giving birth on our bathroom floor. Mama cat stayed with her babies until they were weaned and she could be spayed and released. The babies never left, and now, a year later, Bert is the proud uncle to 4 mischievous kittens and happy participant in their youthful shenanigans. Our house finally feels full again, though I know it all started 9 years ago with my two tabby Livermore boys.
Thank you so much!
First, here is a picture of beloved Elvis. What a dear, handsome kitty you were. Look at all of that love in your expression.
And here is gorgeous, green-eyed Albert. I used to tell these two apart by their freckles. I love how prominent they are today!
Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Cori. We're so sorry you had to experience this loss. Elvis was a special boy, and he's one of the reasons I have such a fondness for floofy tabby boys -- Bean, too. They are a special breed.
Much love to you, Albert, and his adorable minions.
