Flashback Friday and Tommy and Teaghan's 6th Birthday!
Here's the story of their birth from the post on 2/24/2017 by our kitties in Heaven, Beau Beau and Angie:
So the story continues! Beau Beau here, and I have finally managed to get my message through to the humans - our Mommy Brenda, and Mommy Colleen, the new human mommy (for now… MOL). Colleen is a furry special human mommy to about a squillion other kittehs. We know cuz we met one of her special furry loves, Gwen, over here at the Rainbow Bridge. Gwen came here to da bridge on 01-Dec-2014 before I got here and met me right away. We have been watching over things along with Angie and sending our love to help heal our human’s hearts. Gwen told us how her Mommy Colleen was the mommy of a squillion Norwegian Forest Cat babies and had helped so many other rescue kitties back in the day to find new homes. And so when our Mommy was ready and was looking for new kitties to bring home, she looked at a few rescue places and ended up looking online at a local CT Ragdoll breeder. You see, she always had thought that Angie was a Ragdoll cat and wanted a nice loving soft kitty like that again. But, while she was online we sent her to Colleen’s website, Finnishline Norwegian Forest Cats, where she saw many kitties who looked more like Angie. In her heart she knew that this was the place. Now, we knew she did not want an exact version of either of us but something about the beautiful NFC's there drew her in (yeah really it was us meowing into her ear).
Then Mommy Colleen and Mommy Brenda started emailing each other and they talked and it was like they knew each other from lifetimes ago. Well, ahem, that’s cuz we have been talking to both of them in their dreams every night and they just didn’t know it! Our mommy and daddy decided they wanted not one but two new kitteh’s so they could keep each other company just like me and Angie did with each other.
And the waiting began. Hoping for at least two kitteh’s that bond together is big order to put in with the Universe but we were all pulling for it. Mommy Colleen’s two beautiful kitty mommies, McKenzie, and Rhianna, were both pregnant and due February/March. So guess what? The beautiful McKenzie had her 3 babies on February 24th! She had two boys and one girl. This is the Finnishline “T” litter so their names start with “T”.
Here they are with their Mommy McKenzie (who by the way is another most wonderful mommy) : Left to Right: Tyler, Teaghan and Tomas.
Life is full of signs and signals. Here are a few that we threw at them: my first name (Beau Beau) was “Tommy” when Daddy found me at the Meriden Humane Society back in ‘05. Before she even knew that, Colleen said to Mommy, “Tommy” would be a good nickname for “Tomas”… Wow! Tomas also has a beautiful white heart on his back – that wuz to get Mommy’s attention cuz she loves hearts. Also, Teaghan has a couple of beautiful red spots on her back, just like Angie’s red spot she had on her back. Both Teaghan and Tomas go limp when Mommy Colleen picks them up, just like we did when we got picked up. McKenzie’s mom, Fiona, had her first litter on 27-Oct-2008. Angie passed away on 27-Oct-2016. There are more signs that we are working on sending...
So after watching some behaviors of how the 3 “T”s get along, and the human Mommies talking, so far it looks like Teaghan and Tomas will be the new kitteh's of the Swick/Bentley House!
