Peloton Arrival

We're both comfy!

She walked right up to the barn, politely asked if she could stay, and proceeded to have a look around.  I asked G if we could possibly say no, and he replied, “We haven’t yet”.

Oh… we know how to say no.  Just ask friends and neighbors and family who have tried to give us kittens over the years.  We’ve become well rehearsed and very good at declining the offer, and we’ve been without a cat for more than a decade.

But it’s a completely different story when a little black cat walks up and asks to stay.  Just ask Rasputin, Blackna, St. Kitts and Chin Fee (also known as Raspy, Blacky, Kitters and Chinnie Bellarini).  They all discovered that we have a weakness for their sweet black beauty, and they all stepped into our lives completely on their own.

And so it was with adorable little Peloton.  Peli-Peli has made herself at home… quite comfortable on our glider, and fitting easily into our hearts.  I’d almost forgotten just how relaxing it is to have a cup of coffee in one hand while scratching a cat’s chin with the other.

Welcome home, little girl.

    Black cats are so sweet and have an undeserved reputation. We got our “Puddy Tatt,” a black manx, from the Edgewood shelter. We drove all the way there to get his cuteness. Puddy is so good natured and gets along just fine with a big poodle. Peli Peli is very beautiful and she is blessed to live in your barn.

    How cute……..He knew the time was right. He (is it a he?) is so pretty, too.

    She’s just a little darling. I’m sure there will be more delightful photos of her precious face as time goes by.

    You’re right, Michelle. Totally undeserved reputation!

    I’m sure she will add countless hours of enjoyment to your home. Does Little Brother get along with her???

    Smart kitty. She knew just where to stake her tent.

    Peloton gets along just fine with her Uncle Dusty. He now has a step-sister “Miskat”, so he understands their personalities. And Peli-Peli learned quite quickly that the porch belongs to her, so she’s happy to have visitors.

    They’ve seen each other a couple of times, and it’s been really cute to watch them.

    The first meeting of Peloton and Dusty was a shock to both of them. Both keeping a safe four foot distance. The second encounter was sweet. Peloton trotted down the porch to greet Dusty and his tail was really wagging! They even touched noses!

    If only I had known about a year ago that all I had to do was put a kitten in your yard, and you would do the rest… 😉 Her mother always wanted love more than food, and she seems to be the same. So happy you have a friend to keep you company in the morning! She knew exactly where to run!

    Such a sweet story! (Jennifer lived in my neighborhood until recently… and was forever telling us they had kittens – which we kindly declined. After reading this tonight, she called to let me know that when they moved, they gave a mama cat and her two little calico kittens to a friend… but they could never find the little black one. Obviously, my little Peloton made her way around the block and eventually into my honeysuckle hedge!)

    Good for you, baby girl! I suppose your full name is Peloton Pierpoint!

    As with every category I’ve know nice black kitties and not so nice ones. But, you know me, I love them all. So happy you have a little snuggler. I almost always have travel pictures with kitties. My recent trip to Frederickburg was no exception…two cats graced me with their presence and I will be posting their pictures soon. In the next few months I hope to be on the search for a new cat/kitten. I’ve been too long without one of my own. Although I will say it was nice as we went away on our recent short trips to not have that extra worry on my list! Congratulations on being chosen!:)
