PW Weekend: in which we come to a close

Congratulations! You have made it to the very last PW Weekend post. You’ve stuck with me through thick and thin, through tales of cookie decorating, rare beef tenderloin, a red wine bathtub experience, wild mustangs, and tales of Charlie the basset hound. And I love you for it.

This final recap is a story of two kitties finding a home. Remember Nelson and Winthrop? The cats of the entwined tails?

Mom and I met these two little snuggly guys our very first evening.

Ree had no idea where they had come from. She explained they had probably been abandoned by someone.

But who would ever abandon these little purring machines??

They were smelly and dirty like outside cats, but their extreme snuggly natures indicated they were destined to be indoor cats.

You could barely set foot outside without being accosted by one or both of them.

The only solution was to pet them consummately for at least a couple hours.

Who would give them a home?

Don’t worry! This story doesn’t have a sad ending. I can’t say who the final owner of these kitties was, but this person will give them all the affection they need, I’m confident.

We piled in the limo, and Nelson and Winthrop settled in for the ride.

They hung out and calmly watched the Oklahoma horizon.

There was no kitty vomiting, or meowing, or anything. Two more well-behaved passenger cats have never before been seen.

I’m so glad they found a home.

The End!

    that makes me sad to think they were abandoned, and really mad. But I’m happy they found a home, I’m not a cat person, but they look like little sweethearts

    I have enjoyed all of your PW Weekend blogs.

    Our cat is named Shady. He was abandoned as a teenager and had many scars from fighting off the feral cats during the months of his loneliness. He is my special friend and our pet for life. My heart goes out to Nelson and Winthrop. May their futures be rosy and bright. Blessings to you, Jenna.

    So were you tempted? I always get mushy with animals and if they need a home, I fight myself so hard b/c I want them but know we really would be better off with just the single dog we have in our small home. She’s an only child and has been for 6 1/2 years. I don’t think she’d enjoy sharing our attention. But we’ve come close to getting a second one several times. I just adore dogs and cats! Glad these two found homes. The orange one’s name isn’t Tom Brady now is it? I just saw your post with him at the end of it and he’s orange too. 🙂

      You’d better believe I was tempted! =) However, I couldn’t spring that on my husband, plus I wouldn’t have had a way to transport them on my flight back to Chicago. And the orange Tom Brady isn’t the same cat–he’s been Dave and Katie’s cat for at least a year now.
