Apparently the cat bleg for Orville and Wilbur was successful. Here are the details from Robin:
HUGE thanks to you and the Balloon Juice community, Adam! My daughter and I just dropped Orv and Willy off with Jenny and her daughter-in-law. We met up in St. Louis and the boys are Topeka bound!
Reid, you did it!
You guys housed my cats!!!
They’re Kansas kitties now.
Seriously, thank you so much.
I cannot thank you enough!
I’m not sure if the adopter is a commenter or a lurker, but hopefully they’ll sound of in the comments and let us know how things are going.
Here are the pictures Robin sent across.
Yay!!! So glad they found a home and will be taken care of!
Wonderful news! Hope we get kitty updates!
Happiest of endings! Good luck you lucky boys, your hoomins look like loving people.
The difficult, we do immediately.
The impossible takes a little while.
Balloon Juice, yer Full Service Blog!!

I think I’ve fixed all the fucked up formatting that WP decided to just add to the post.
Awww…! They look surprisingly mellow travelling in their crate!

That is so awesome : )
Thank you everyone involved. So nice to read some good news
I just got this random message on Facebook.
Yay! Glad it worked out.
@Raven: That’s awesome. Always nice to know when you’ve made a difference in someone’s life.
Just wonderful. It’s so great to know that there are still generous big hearted hoomans in the world today.
Whoa. That’s special.
So glad to hear they found a new home! It would be great to get updates.
I found a picture of a kids team I coached in78 and put it on the C-U facebook page and got all kinds of replies. That was Private.
In other feline-related news, I successfully shaved my cat’s behindular zone this afternoon! It was a surprisingly trauma- and blood-free event. I am even fairly confident nothing too horrible will happen to me while I’m sleeping tonight!
That’s great news! I hope the boys will like Kansas.
I love that side-by-side shot of them. Inseparable!
@Raven: that’s great, and has to be so satisfying to know you had such a positive impact!
@LesGS: I’m lighting a candle for you.
@Miss Bianca: They’re already plotting.
The boys are home and checking things out. I’ll have to share pics when they stop moving for a minute. Thank you so much to the B-J community for this gift!

@Raven: What a nice message. We never know who remembers and appreciates our work.
Great news! I hope they’ll be happy and contented in their new home. They are lovely kitties.
Raven, that’s really nice! Congratulations on the differences you’ve made in people’s lives — the ones you know about and the ones you don’t.
Hurray! I was just thinking of them this morning and wondering.
You absolutely MUST share your feline behindular-zone shaving secrets with John Cole.
WaaHoo!! I’m so happy the boys have found their new home. Thanks for letting us know, Adam.
I’ve been lucky.
@Amir Khalid: Good idea! I will send him an email written in all-caps!
The adopters are truly special people to take two 14 year olds. I hope they have many years together.
Two happy kitteh stories in a row? I dig.
@Jenny Howard: You are wonderful human. Cats! So lucky to have you.

@Raven: That is amazing. To hear that you’ve made a difference is so special. I’m sure you made many more that you’ll never know about.
@Jenny Howard: Thank YOU for the gift of giving them a home.
Oh so glad to see how well this has worked for everyone, especially the boys, and the pics are much appreciated.
@Jenny Howard: thank you for stepping up for those sweet kitties! Hope you comment lots, not only with kitty updates. If you’ve mostly been a lurker, we’re so glad you’re here.
Some days you make your own luck. It’s called work.
You did good my friend.
@Jenny Howard: Thank you for giving my first babies a loving forever home! I woke up smiling, knowing that they are with a great person and in the perfect situation for what I am sure will be a long, happy, healthy third act. It was great to meet you yesterday and I’m thrilled to know this amazing community exists!
