Meet the New Kitten – Pia Bean!

Welcome Pia to Colehaus Cats! May 2012 © Colehaus Cats.

The day has arrived! Welcome Pia Bean (a.k.a. Bo)! A big THANK YOU to West Columbia Gorge Humane Society. And especially, Foster Mom D who cared so well for her, THANK YOU!

Temporarily ensconced in her lavish bedroom retreat, little Pia is enjoying all the perks of sequestered kittenhood: The finest food, the freshest water, twice a day litter scooping, humans at her beck and call. And call she does. Pia has the tiniest, squeakiest, highest pitched mew ever. Who wouldn’t want to rush to her attention with that teensy voice?

Answer: NO ONE! The cute is extra strong with this one.

Pia is eating and drinking well and is up to two pounds, five ounces. She’s had her shots and her first nail trimming (Oh boy! Mom can begin healing!) She’s also laid claim to a number of straws and a “crinkle mouse” as her personal toys of choice. As has been a rule here at Colehaus, naturally the green straws garnered her attention first, and were the first to disappear under the nightstands. No worries! Here’s Tessa’s red straws! Nom, nom, nom… Good thing Colehaus is well stocked with red straws.

A week later, Newton took to Pia from the start, as did Seth (it’s an orange cat thing, they swear), but the road was bumpy meeting Tessa. Of course, that was yesterday. Today they are tearing up the hallway, chasing each other left and right. Next month, we predict we won’t be able to separate the two. We think Tessa will have Pia believing she’s gray, not orange. Or maybe it’ll be the other way around!

  1. Oh my goodness, so much cute in such a little package! You are adorable Pia!

  2. Hi kitties! I saw you mentioned on the CB so I came over to say hello. You are all very adorable and I look forward to getting to know you better.

  3. Hi. We have never visited your blog before but read about you on the CB and thought we would come over, say hello, and introduce ourselves: we are four Abyssinian cats living in France with our beloved woofie brother, English Springer Spaniel Tommy, and our two giant horse sibs, Percherons Vidock and Violette. It’s great to meet you all. And the little Pia Bean is quite the cutie!

    • Thank you so much for visiting. And all the way from France even! (Pia tilts her head, “France?”) Your blog is lovely! Snuggling with Abys? What a delight!

  4. Pia is a real sweetie! It will be fun watching her grow up.


    • Thank you, Team Tabby! Just as long as Pia doesn’t grow up too fast. She’s just so adorably floofy right now! We love your visitor photos!

  5. OMC Pia is adorable!!!

    Welcome to the Blogosphere, neighbors!! I say that because we both have the WCGHS as one of our favorite places.

    I live up in the woods and up the mountain from town, and work at Wooly Wooly Wagtails, the yarn shop on E Street (I’m usually there on Thursday). We have a dedicated barrel for donations of food and stuff for the Humane Society in the shop, and reward our customers who add to it. Stop in and see me some time!!

  7. Nice to meet you Pia Bean. You are adorable! We just went back through your posts so we could meet the rest of your wonderful family.

    • *squeak!*

      That’s Pia saying thank you, nice to meet you back. (she doesn’t have proper meow just yet). Your family sounds awesome. We loved each of their descriptions, including the sweet guardian angels. Feline gardening! Ingenious!

  8. I am also a long time lurker at the Cat Blogosphere. I came to look at your blog after KC introduced you. I was so enthralled that I wiled away the afternoon by reading every single word. Your cats are all so beautiful (Of course!!!!!) and your writing is wonderful. Now feel that I know each of your cats almost as if they are mine. There seems to be an explosion of orange cats(kittens) this spring. Isn’t it wonderful??!!! But I must admit I have never met a cat I didn’t love. My chocolate brown part Siamese kitty, Cocoa,sends her regards to you and your cats. She is quite happy that our living situation has forced me give up all dreams of rescuing every other cat I have heard needs a home. D.

  9. SQUEEE! Pia is a cutie!!

    It’s nice to meet all of you!!
