I promised an update on Henry yesterday, and here it is…..
We officially adopted him on Sunday!!
After 2 adoption events and minimal interest in him, I realized just how attached we really were to Henry. On Sunday night we had him loaded in the carrier with Lucille and Alida to go to Petco. And neither of us could get ourselves to walk out the door. We discussed adopting him (for probably the 20th time since he’s been at our house) and finally decided to take the plunge. The biggest reason we adopted Henry, besides the fact that he’s charming and loving? He isn’t bothered by Cookie. He leaves her alone and does his own thing. He isn’t trying to be friends with her and isn’t scared of her. She has definitely pawsmacked him SEVERAL times and hissed a ton, but he is absolutely unphased. His pure denial of Cookie’s aggression, without being aggressive or scared himself is unique. We adore his personality and are so glad to now call him part of our family!
Now, the tricky part. We need to give him a new name. My husband is set on an Army Engineer related name including but not limited to: Sapper, Essayons, Castle, and Francois de Fleury. I am not cracked up about any of these options. Any ideas??
Below are a few pictures of Henry from his first two days as an official family member 🙂 He’s got a red kitten collar (and, yes, it has glitter. it’s the only kitten sized red one I could find-red for Army Engineers. He’ll get a more boyish adult sized collar when he’s bigger).
