Xander, fka Benjamin, was adopted a week ago. Since he'd been in foster care for a year after recovering from eye surgery and due to a special diet, we thought it might take some time to adjust to his new family.  But less then a week and he's already hanging with the other cats in the family and comfortable in his new home.

Xander's first steps in his home

We thought it was about time for another update! Xander has pretty much fully assimilated into our household already, as of several days ago. It only seemed to take him three or four days to get comfortable!

He and the other cats all get along quite well, there's been nary a hiss for several days. He's explored most of the house, and we've moved his food and litter box into the main kitty room.

We're in the process of transitioning all the kitties to the wet food, since we weren't really able to keep Xander away from the dry food. He's had one minor poop mishap, but not a big deal. We have him going in to the vet on Thursday to get caught up on shots and get his first checkup with us. That's about it, his transition was largely uneventful, which is for the best I'm sure.

So, that's all for now! I'm attaching some pictures Hillary took so you can see him in his new home.

We'll try to get one with all three cats in it - they hang out together sometimes, but won't cooperate with the camera.

Another Happy Ending, thank you Peter and Hillary!

  1. YAY! I had my eye on Xander for a long time, but it just wasn't meant to be.
