In the last few months there have been four cats (in addition to mine) adopted by family members. I don’t think that’s ever happened before.
You all know Sasha by now. She’s my youngest cutie.
In addition my grand niece’s daughter adopted a bonded pair. She has two older cats but had room for more. They are three-month old boys.
Earlier in the year my niece’s daughter “fostered” a cat for her daughter but the cat never left. Here is Brandy who was a feral cat adjusting to the good life inside.
That’s my side of the family. The beloved husband has four adult kids and at the last count (which may or may not be accurate) there were around 13 grandpets. There are dogs, cats, sometimes chickens and who knows what else. There were a few passings, some adoptions. Hard to track since they live on the other side of the country.
It runs in the genes.
