KC's Big Adventure....



The photos are small but magnificent. Without seeing a lot of detail, you can tell by the body language this is a Happy Kitten.

Karen C. and Deb literally had to fight for the release of little KC this morning. Needless to say, they got their cat.

OUR HOUSE HERE IN HOUSTON SOLD!

Ahhhh...we have to be out by the 3rd. Lots to do.......

But.....most important....tomorrow---KC!!!! Missy, you are going to be such a great friend for her!

Karen C. said...

UPDATE: KC fell asleep on Kelly, then Kelly fell asleep with her. Amanda and Melanie got home and woke them both up with squeals of "Oh how cute and tiny!". The ferocious beasty yawned and pounced over to play with the new people. When I hung up, KC was getting loved, petted and played with by 2 more new friends.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Oh, Karen C., your kiddos better watch out for that fierce little beastie! She just might lick them to death!!!

Thank you for the updates!

Karen C. said...

I've had to call and ask them to please take the baby to the food, water and litter periodically. They don't want to put her down.

Karen C. said...

KC is currently sleeping on her back with front paws up under her chin. Pictures are being taken.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Ahhh...can't wait..ML, HOPE YOU WERE NOT PLANNING ON SLEEPING TONIGHT -- WE MAY BE BLOGGING IN OUR SLEEP!!!

Karen C. said...

I'M STILL AT WORK AND I WANNA GO HOME AND SEE THE BABY! WHINE, WHINE, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

SO CUTE! I'VE BEEN TALKING TO THE PICTURE OF KC. YEP, I'M STILL UP! Okay, I'll try to get a little sleep. This baby is such a sweetie!!!

Good Morning!
Latest news from the Tower...
CO 136 departing LAX for IAH is experiencing a slight delay of approx. 7 minutes as of now, awaiting arrival of aircraft from Maui, HI.
So for now, scheduled arrival into Houston is 1:28p.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Yippee! Our air traffic controller is hard at work!!!

Rose said...

Well, I have some flight info to post of the Journey Home for K.C.!
Continental flight 136 is scheduled to depart LAX at 8:37a, due to the aircraft's late arrival in from MAUI! The check in terminal is #6, departs gate 67B.
Set to arrive in Houston (IAH) at 8:07a to gate C-37, baggage claim area in Terminal C. Estimate time of arrival 1:28p. No weather alerts concerning the flight path, looks clear throughout the 3 hour, 21 minute flight. There may be showers building up in Houston after 1:00p, and tonight looks to be a dark and stormy night! But by then, K.C. will be safe, sound, dry, and be getting lovin' enough for days from Godmother Deb and Sloan!! Safe travels Karen C, Deb and ML!
Next update in approx 20 minutes!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Rose, I love your updates. Are we going to be posting here or on your site? Let me know...!
I left word on Kat's blog to check here for the latest info.

Yea KC!!!!

Karen C. said...

Thank goodness for the slight delay, because I needed it. I had no idea the "cargo" area wasn't at the airport, so...I went to the airport. Wouldn't you figure if you wanted to be on a flight, you'd go to the airport? Well, after getting lost and finally parking and making the long hike to where I thought I should be, I was informed that I should get in my car and drive a mile or more away from the place. Of course I got lost again. When I finally found the place, the van to the flight was just about to leave. They asked if I would prefer to book a later flight, but then decided to hold the van and let the baby on. Quite possibly because I was crying and they didn't want to deal with an emotional female in their cargo area for another hour. Things that make me cry: big crowds, dealing with strangers, confusion, stress, being late when it effects others, and (most of all) SAYING GOODBYE TO ADORABLE LITTLE KITTENS! Later I'll cry from happiness when she arrives at her destination. Oh, yeah, did I mention I also have PMS? I didn't even bother to put my contacts in this morning - good thing because they would have washed right out of my eyes. Gotta go find tissues now...

Rose, please take over.

Rose said...

Karen! I'm a little suprised they had you drop her off at cargo...whatever, I know EXACTLY how you were feeling! You deserve a nice quiet rest, now...

oh how 'acitin!!! We can't wait to see pikshurs when she gets home!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

11:22 a.m. Houston Time:

Sloane & I are off to pick up Charley & ML. Will report as soon as we have the fierce KC in hand!!!


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH~

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

All right!!!
Yes!!!
We are officially awaiting Deb & Sloane's arrival.

All four of us are understandably apprehensive about the task ahead of us. Namely, confronting, face to face, with the "Yellow Dot Cat". I shudder to think what the next few hours hold for us.

But, we are professionals, well trained in the skills of wrangling cats, so we step forward to the daunting task ahead.

Hopefully, we will all return, intact and unscathed, to report success in our endeavor: to pick up the dreaded behaviorly challenged feral kitten. Again, I shudder.

Bravely I am signing off. Hopefully to post again.

Emma's Kat said...

Emma and I can't wait!!!! How far are you and Deb from each other, ML?

Karen C. said...

WARNING! When she's awake, she'll nibble the end of your finger with her tiny fangs and climb up your shirt with her sharp talons. Her ultimate goal is to reach your shoulder or under your chin where she intends to lick you with her wet tongue and play with your hair. When you pet and cuddle her, she'll purrrr loudly and look like she might drift off to sleep. THIS IS A TRICK - BE WARNED! It's all part of her devious plan to turn you into an "oooh-ing" "awwww-ing" puddle of human mush. Once she has done this, you'll be her slave for life.

Rose said...

Well, looks like K.C. has made her way into TEXAS AIRSPACE!! She's a bit more than half-way there! Now, a quiet moment, while The Cat Whisperers prepare to undertake the mission of their lifetimes, meeting the she-feline of the yellow dot...(cue music - "Yellow Dot Cat Theme, by Vangeles...)
Hehehehehehe!!!!

Cecilia said...

Can't wait for KC to and an go to her new home. Want more pictures!

Rose said...

The flight looks to be progressing normally, and K.C. is about 53 minutes from landing!!
Wonder what she's plotting in that wild, uncontrollable fuzzy brain of hers???? Hmmmmm...

Rose said...

Just checked the Continental website, and they've posted a new ETA into Houston of 1:50...so, we're STILL at 57 minutes! Another e-mail to follow shortly...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Cocoa

Bonnie Underfoot said...

She's a pretty little tortie. If I were efur at a shelter, they'd fink I was not fur adoption cuz I don't like people. But I've had my beans fur a long time an they let me be myself. Cept fur addin that stoopid Victor to MY house. Good luck, KC!!

Rose said...

Cute thing just happened! Deb called me from the airport to ask me when the flight was due in, and I had the latest screen up (which I just e-mailed...some addresses have been bouncing back-must be typos on my part-sorry). Well, K.C. is 10 minutes from landing!
It was so funny, seems Deb kept asking the staff when the flight was coming in and I guess they for some reason weren't telling her! Oh, duh! You just WORK there!
They all sounded all giggly and excited!!

Rose said...

AAUUGHHH! Boy, was I off-
THEY've landed and are taxiing to the gate!!!
HooooRahhhhhh!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

EEEE..They're on the ground & taxiing, I can't wait.

katnippia said...

Yeah!!! Lil KC is in texas with her new mommies. watch out she'll kill yah with cuteness, and kitty kisses and lil finger nibbles.

Rose said...

The flight recorded being at the gate at 1:45, 24 minutes later than scheduled...Golly, I wish I were there to see ML and Deb!!!

Rose said...

Okay, okay, PICTURES!!!!! Now we need PICTURES, please!!!!

katnippia said...

I second what Rose said. Lots of pictures, PLEASE

katnippia said...

Has Deb or ML called anyone, with an update yet?

Rose said...

Hey effuryone!!! Deb and ML just called! They have K.C. and they're in the car on the way to ML's house! Deb said they've taken 89 pictures SO FAR!!! ML said "she BIT me!" then she started laughing! They are trying to count all the colors in her coat, seems they loose track and have to start over! I asked were her ears down and her eyes sad, and ML said "Oh, No, Not now!!!"
They all sound as giddy as schoolgirls! They were still negotiating their way out of the airport, and if they've gotten to 89 already, my gosh! Deb said there's even one of she and ML holding each other with worry over when K.C. would be there!
Considering the noises and sensations she's been through this morning, K.C. sounds just like a little trooper! Congratulations and thanks to Karen C. for noticing that little fuzzy bright spot and keeping her from that "Back Room" Way to go, Girlfriend!!!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

I want to see ALL the pictures, even the silly ones!!

I sure hope Sloane is driving so those giddy ladies can concentrate on the "wild, visous feral kitten"!!

Hooray for Deb, ML, Karen and especially Little KC.

katnippia said...

Rose could u have Deb or ML call Karen C. she is working as is anxious to hear how lil KC is doing

Karen C. said...

YAY! The boss came in and I had to dump IM (sorry Katnippia), but he left just in time for THE CALL. They all sound so happy! Little KC is making friends with everyone and isn't scared at all, even though a bunch of silly humans are making loud lovey lovey noises all around her! What a great life she's going to have!!!

I want the ENTIRE series of pictures too please!

katnippia said...

Thats ok Karen C. i totally understand. Sia sends lovers to everyone, she is being very lovey today.

Karen C. said...

now I can't get back on to messenger - anyone else having Yahoo Messenger issues today?

Rose said...

Karen, I haven't been able to sign into messenger either! I thought it was because my screens froze and I had to reboot-but it gives a "try later" prompt...

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

we're here getting ready to post photos
