Palmer goes home!

In April, I received an email from a woman who was handed a kitten by a young boy in her neighborhood. He got him from a man handing out kittens from a box on the street, and placed him in her palm on Palm Sunday. This is how Palmer got his name.
He was only a couple of days old. He weighed 4 ounces, and still had his umbilical cord attached. Tigra gave him a thorough examination.
Luckily, he latched on to the bottle very quickly, and I don't think I've ever had a kitten who ate as well as he did. He took his food seriously (and I think he still does;).
 I kept him full, clean,
 burped, and snuggled.
 He was a happy little guy!

 This is the day he found his toes!
 He even went out to dinner with us at Champs, who let me feed him right there at the table. It caused quite a scene!

 He spent a lot of time at my office, and my coworkers co-fostered him! When I had to be in class, they all stepped up to feed him and snuggle him! Thanks, guys! Here he is in his kitten sling with auntie Billie.
 He completed an IT internship with Anthony.
 Soon he was eating on his own,
 and getting all grown up and handsome.
 Once he tested negative for FIV/FELV, he was ready for a friend. Anya came to stay with us for a bit before she was adopted.
I needed to get this guy some new friends, he never left my side...or my front, or my back, or my feet...
So he went to hang out with Bushwick Street Cats, aka Chris and Jeannie!

 Then, he was ready for his new home, and things are going well.
Really well.
 Can we get a close up of that? 
 He even helps with the groceries!
 Palmer is living happily ever after in his furrever home, with his mama who reached out to me for help when he was placed in her palm.
Have a great life, little guy, thanks for all the snuggles.
