Brendan surveys his kingdom.

A few mornings ago all three cats were lying on the bed and I was surprised to see Brendan give Harper a butt-licking. As far as I know, in the cat world that is an affectionate, dare we say parental gesture. Then Harper went over to Brendan and gave him a few licks on the forehead between the eyes, the way Ramona likes to. Then it struck me.

All along I have been under the misconception that I found Harper and Ramona on Petfinder and I was mysteriously called to beg Olof to drive one thousand miles to pick up these kittens I just had to have. And then it was just my luck that Ramona turned out to adore Brendan and Harper turned out to be a sweet fellow that got along with everyone and was a wonderful, easy going cuddle bug. But after watching the three of them together I finally understand who really picked out these two and sent the gotta have them vibes.

It was Brendan.

you're probably right. he did not want to be alone and just knew somehow that they would be good for him. and vice versa. it's so nice when things turn out well.

Edsel is right - Brendan did not want to be alone and knew who it was that he wanted.

I think you're right as well. He knew that they would fit right into your home, and now, he is taking good care of them for you as well!

That Brendan is one smart cat - he knew what you needed, what he needed - and he made it happen.

Keep up the good work Brendan!
