Oh, too bad it isn’t working out for both kitties. But thank goodness you have a friend who wants to provide a home for Vi. And I hope Jasper is feeling much better, Brae. That must have been very frightening.

Sorry to hear about the irreconcilability with the fuzzy kids– have been going through similar situation with introduction of a new young rambunctious bully-dog into the house (turns out, old dogs don’t like new tricks!). No uncontrollable hostility though, thank goodness. Glad you have another path to pursue.

That’s such sad news about Vi and Jasper.

If only there was a Dr. Phil of the feline world……

I hope it all works out for the kitties. Those are great vintage kits.

I’m so sorry that Vi hates Jasper. Sometimes personalities just clash. I hope she loves your friend and gets to lord it over her own household like a little Queen Bee.

ahhh she is beautiful and suits her very pretty name. How could Jasper not fall in love with her :-)

First of all: I adore the name! I’m italian ;-)
She reminds me of my “Semolina", and I wish her the same happiness: to find a family to live in, until old age, surrounded by the love of bipedal and quadrupedal :-)
Love, Flora

It was wonderful to meet you, Im so happy you stopped by my table! It was so fun to meet all my Amazing Miniature friends that I have been conversing with for years finally in person. I had a great time in Chicago, but it’s always nice to get back home too.

Violetta is a lucky kitty and I am sure Jasper will welcome her into your home given time. She has a beautiful face. Welcome to blogland Vi. We look forward to seeing more of you and Jasper in future posts.

Aww, she is Beautiful, Brae! I love black kittys more than any others and have had many over the years. My lovely kitty of twelve years died last spring, but at Christmas we adopted a new one… she is a black female and needed a new home. She is so good… never bothers the minis at all!
I hope your twosome will quickly become friends!

She’s beautiful. Best of luck with Vi.
We were adopted by a scraggly, flea infested black stray. He was so sweet. (we did take Mr. Kitty for shots and to be neutered.)

Congratulations on your new girl! We just adopted 2 calico sisters from the Humane Society. We think the only reason they are allowing us to stay in our house is that we changed their names from Tookie Wookie and Tinkie Winke to Maude and Mabel!

How good of you to open your home (and heart) to a rescue animal. She’s lovely and I’m sure she will soon settle in and thrive as if she’d always lived with you.

Hi Brae, Chuck and I went to the show on Saturday. It was so much fun. I got in trouble with twinheart vegetables that you can actually slice and see the insides. I found Barbie size flowers in white and black. There were so many things to choose from. I did find a precious grey poodle. I am not surprised you got the candles and items with the little faces inside. They were so cute.
I wanted to go back on Sun but couldn’t.

I just love everything you chose at the show. The bamboo is amazing.

How wonderful for you Brae to not only get to put a face to Jennifer at Looking Glass Miniatures, but to also bring home some of her wonderful talent to show us! :D
I love the uniqueness of your mop bucket, and I am sure that you will be able to put it, as well as your other lovely new treasures, to very good use. :D

I’ve always wondered. You buy such wonderful things. Do you save up money separately for these treasures. I always find that I save money but the prices are pretty high for some things I love.

Thanks.
