A family wanted to adopt two kittens, but they couldn’t leave the third cat alone.
Three kittens were rescued and transported all the way from Kentucky to Meow Parlour (in New York City) so they may have a better shot at life.
They were eight weeks old and on their way to finding their happily ever after. Molly, a rescue foster volunteer, took them in and saw their enormous personalities right away. One of the cats had a lot to say as soon as they got in the car, and her sisters agreed.
Molly shared in the interview, “Hattie (long hair tabby) looked to be a bit of a diva, making her wishes known loud and clear.”
“As soon as I opened the carrier at my flat, all three kittens (Hattie, Ginny, and Lucy) leapt out and began exploring and playing nonstop for hours.”
The kittens were not bashful at all, and they immediately demanded pets and attention. Before settling in for the night as a trio, they roamed around their new lodgings and ate to their hearts’ pleasure.
“They leaped immediately into my bed, bypassing the many cat beds I had set up for them. Every night of their stay, they all slept there ” Molly told in the interview.
Molly wasn’t sure how easy it would be to find them homes during the summer because adoptions were slow.
“I was particularly concerned because there were three of them,” Molly explained, “so they’d likely need to find one home as a couple and another home with a kitten or young cat yearning for a friend.”
Hattie would leap from her bed every morning to retrieve her favorite fuzzy jingle ball, and her sisters would instantly join in the fun. “All three kittens enjoyed playing in their tunnel, wrestling with one another, and chasing each other around my apartment.”
“They liked to cuddle up together on my bed or one of their Meow Parlour beds when they eventually had a respite. They were frequently seen giving each other baths, which occasionally devolved into wrestling.”
Molly intended to rehome the tabbies in pairs at the very least, but was secretly hoping for a triple adoption miracle.
A few days later, she got a pleasant surprise when a family contacted her and expressed interest in adopting all three kittens at the same time.
Molly said in the interview, “I tried not to get my expectations up because so much can happen throughout the adoption process.”
After losing their two long-term cats to old age, the family was originally planning to adopt a pair of kittens. “When the adopter saw the three images, she couldn’t imagine separating them.”
After a virtual meet-and-greet, the family was even more smitten with the trio. “The adoption was finalized a few days later – what’s really amazing is that the adopter is a fifth-grade teacher, just like me,” Molly explained.
Teddy, Rose, and Rain (now renamed Hattie, Ginny, and Lucy) are prospering in their large family. “They’ve already made themselves at home in their forever home, where they have two human siblings who adore them.”
The kittens have a lot of fun running about the house and wrestling on the big table, which keeps them entertained for hours.
“They are explorers and sleep like champions. They’re even great than I imagined,” the adopter confessed in the interview.
