Talking My Magilla Gorilla

Okay so he came home today. He didn't want to get in the carrier but once he did he settled in and didn't make a peep on the way home. He looked quite content actually. I brought him inside and put him near the food bowls of my other two. They both went up to him Eve first she just kind of sniffed around and bolted when she saw me pull her food out. She doesn't care as long as she gets fed. Varuca, of course, hissed and growled and was very unhappy. She did eat while she glared at him and growled the whole time. Magilla did nothing (he did eat just before we left the shelter so please don't think he didn't eat) Poor little Magilla just sat there and looked around. I set him up in the back bedroom for now so my little missy can get used to the idea. I picked her up and she actually cried, then for the first time ever, she growled at me. Lets just say she isn't taking this well. She did forgive me later on and took a mid evening nap on me so we are okay. When I was in the room with Magilla I left the carrier door open but he wouldn't come out. It took about 15 mins for him to realize "holy crap, I'm HOME" Let me tell you I have never seen a more greatful cat in my life. Hubby met him for the first time and Magilla gave him a great big hug and a big Magilla kiss (he really isn't the animal kissy type) but at least the cat knows who he needs to suck up to

This is the first meeting I circle where he was if you couldn't see him



This is him sitting in the crate trying to figure out what is going on



Magilla realizing he has his own home


This is him asking for a bell rub



And last but not least my favorite SUPER MAGILLA, sorry I couldn't resist with this shot

Dena, he is adorable!! I'm sure Miss Varuca will adjust in time. As long as she knows she's still mommy's baby she should be fine.

What does daddy think about Magilla?? Does he like him?

Magilla was a feral cat that I thought was way too cute and I wanted to have him neutered and released. When the vets trap neuter and release they clip the ear so they know that cat was already spayed and neutered and they don't have to trap them again. So thats what happened to his ear. He ended up staying at the shelter longer than expected and became increasing cute and loving.

Dena, he is super handsome! Look at those extra tootsies. He looks like such a lover. I am so thrilled he has a home with you.
