Meet Miss Fiona Boxley



Hello, everyone!  I would like to introduce you to Miss Fiona Boxley.  She's the latest love in our married life, and I wanted you all to meet her.  If you follow me on instagram, I'm sure you've already seen pictures.  Since Bodhi passed away, we have known that Basil needed a sibling, but we wanted to make sure the time was right.  So, in April, we brought in Fiona.  We got her from the same rescue organization as Basil, Care for Animals.  They are wonderful people, and they really felt like these two would be a good fit.





The transition was a little rocky at first.  They didn't exactly get along, even though we spent weeks keeping them separated/introducing them.  We did see moments where they would play and come close to cuddling, which gave us hope.




Just when we were worrying that it wasn't going to work out, they turned a corner and became buds.  Fiona is fluffy and incredibly cuddly, and we love her so much.






This is the closest they have come to cuddling so far.  Basil has been adjusting pretty well.  Truth be told, I think we thought she'd like having a sister more than she does, but she gets a lot of play time.  They're exhausted when we get home, so they're pretty much a pile of cuddles.




Even though, sometimes I catch Basil sticking her tongue out at Fiona!





So, our house is full of love again.  I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more pictures of Miss Fiona.  She's a cuddly, happy addition to our home.

  1. There are a number of reasons why a cat sticks out its tongue, but the main reason is because they're happy. So that's a good sign!

    When my cat went from being an outdoor only cat to an indoor-outdoor cat, she didn't put her tongue back all the way in her mouth for weeks. Weeks.

    1. Ha! Basil has never really been interested in the outdoors, but we have to watch Fiona around the entry. She's getting better, though. They do a lot of window watching.

  2. You and Josh win at naming your cats. I still think my favorite is Sir Reginald Watson.

    1. Thanks! Her name was Fiona when we adopted her, and we thought about changing it, but she just seemed like SUCH a Fiona. Josh kept trying to call her Boxley, which just evolved into Miss Fiona Boxley. Sir Reginald Watson was a great one! Our friend Ryan, who adopted him from us, calls him Reggie Swatts. So good!

  4. When we get a new furry companion they never replace the ones that have left, but they do bring their own unique personalities and presence. And Basil sticking her tongue out a Fiona....ha ha ha! (SF)
