A117743 Zipper comes to visit!

March 27, 2008

Remember Zipper? She was the little runt that refused to grow. My how things change! Zipper is now 6lbs and has been staying with us for a few days while her normal staff is away. She has been spending her days exploring her old stomping grounds, chirping her approval at the level of serve we are providing her and playing with her old cat pals. It’s amazing how much more personality this little girl has now! We are learning something new about her each day. For example, she still like to perch on our shoulders like the way she did when she was 800 grams. She also loves to play chase with people, cats, dust, ghosts…

Our friend is scheduled to come and pick her up tomorrow. HUMPH… that’s what he thinks…

Zipper has cleverly figured out the secret to not leaving: don’t grow. She eats (well, she did until a few days ago) as much as the rest of the cats in the litter, but has somehow managed to gain only 40 grams in 3 weeks. Her siblings have gained about 400-500 grams, so she’s losing that race.

Until she’s over 800 (she’s 560 right now), she can’t get microchipped. So at the current rate of growth, we’re going to have her until… March.

Update! Good news! Zipper is now healthy and over 800grams. She has also found a forever home with two of our closest friends. They kitten-sat her for a few days and fell head over heels in love. This of course means that we get to see her on a regular basis. woohoo!
