I Get these Strong Feelings.....and when I do.....it drives me nuts. Mama has learned to go with it........
Mama and I went to Wally World today to get groceries and odds-n-ends we needed .After that, and after I found my lost keys I put on the roof of the car..........we went to Foxes' Pizza. While there,I kept thinking about all the animals that needed a home. Then I realized it was because the restaurant is next door to the vet and rescue shelter from where I got my dog Sweetie over six years ago.
From that point all I could think about was that there was a kitten there that needed me. I told my Mother about it, and after feeding our faces, we went to see if I was right. MY BABY was there!When they showed me the four cats, in less than 30 seconds, I knew why I felt the way I did. I knew which cat had been "calling to me" while I sat next door the minute I saw her.Who could resist this?
UPDATE: Here's the picture! Isn't she a doll?
She's a dead-ringer for Mama's blue cat (and mine..sort of .....since I live next door.......) . When I held her I said ,"There you are! I knew I was getting my baby today."
She took right to me, purring her little heart out.She is about 9-10 weeks old, and is a blue gray(looks like a Russian blue, which she is not of course.) She looks just like Mama's cat did when she was a kitten.
Mama's cat,Miss Blue ,is a small blue grey cat about 12 years old, I think..She's been a great pet, and always proudly brings her catch (mice ,usually) to the back door.I hope our new baby will be like her. daughter Lisa and I named her Zoey.It means life, and her life was spared, so I think it's the perfect name.
It has been a calm afternoon. I bathed Zoey as she had pooped in her crate on the way home.Little Zoey is in love with our dog Sweetie. Sweetie,on the other hand is less than estatic.She is being polite to the kitten, and probably thinks she will be gone a few days.
A NICE Day! Thanks for all of you that read down to the end of the post,in spite of the fact it's about a plump ole granny finding a homeless kitten,PURRrrrrrrrrrrrrrfect!.
