Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

Introducing Dempsey!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 2:26 pm on Wednesday, March 11, 2015

The new baby has arrived!!!  Little Dempsey arrived on Saturday.  Her foster mom drove her down from Albany to my apartment in NYC.  My parents were coming into the city on Sunday, so she got to spend one night in the zoo with Jack, Jill and Belle.

She came right out of the carrier and wanted to play!  With Belle that is.  Dempsey does not like other kitties.  The only theory I have about this is that she was raised in a vet’s office for the first 5 months of her life and she just may have become more familiar with dogs.  She isn’t mean to other cats, she’s just a little afraid at first.  On Sunday, we brought her to her new furever home with my parents and Belle.  Everything went great!  We even had some snuggling.

We also brought her to the vet to be checked out and he said she is very healthy and was obviously very well taken care of.  She is a teeny tiny 5 lbs, 5 oz. which is why she was at the vet for so long – her mom was brought in pregnant to a vet and gave birth to her there and they kept her until she was big and strong enough to go to foster care.

She is SO LOVING and so playful.  She loves to explore around and loves to snuggle up.  She is just a joy!

So I have pictures and videos for you – I know there are a lot here, but trust me, I narrowed it down a LOT 😉

Enjoy the new little baby and her new best pal Belle!

Awww how adorable. Thank you for sharing all the pictures and videos. Dempsey is such a little darling. I bet you didn’t want to give her up. Belle looks like she loves her sister and they are just about the same size. 🙂
