I get these Strong Feelings...........

I Get these Strong Feelings.....and when I 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!.


  1. Ohhhh, I am ecstatic, Jackie! That is wonderful, wonderful news! And I love the name Zoey, too. You're right, she does look like a Russian Blue (or rather your real one does, without the stripe in the tail, lol). Funny, the way you found her is the way I found my Lucy. Those intuitive gut feelings are always right :D I am SO happy for you...and even for Sweetie ;)

  2. Wonderful! Zoey will be a lovely companion for you!

  3. ~~~~Jenny ,thanks for your enthusiastic comments! So you have a cat? I have had cats, but this is my first kitten since I was a child.

    ~~~~~Beth, thanks for stopping in. Headed to visit you right now. Bringing my Diet Coke with me!

  4. Congrats Jackie... That kitty is gorgeous!!!! Isn't it crazy how we sometimes know when we need to do something... That kitty was calling your name!!!! How special is that!!!!! Congrats again...


  5. Way to go! Your kitty is adorable. She will make a purrfect companion! Our 2 black cats came from a shelter 6 years ago. They may be going back as they just tore the bead ropes off the Christmas tree. ;) I'm new here and really like your blog. I'll be looking around now.

  6. ~~~`Betsy,thanks!I DID feel a pull! Honest I did! They give them 30 days...then's over. I like to know that I was able to help,just a little, but mostly I love her cuz she looks like a cat I already adore.

    ~~~~Pam,nice to meet you! I am sure she is going to fit right in,someday...right now I can't even go to the bathroom without her getting in to something! She is so lively,shall we say!

  7. Oh a new kitten how wonderful. It will surely bring joy to your life. Sorry it took me so long to come by and thank you for coming by and commenting at my place. Life gets so busy sometimes and I go periods without being on the computer and falling way behind on blogging and catching up with people here. Have a wonderful week.
