Mews Flash

I would like to thank everyone for the comments, suggestions and emails regarding the cats.  It's wonderful to know there are kind, animal loving people out there, that really care.

Every once in a while, things work out well.  Those things aren't usually associated with me, however, this time they were.

I had emailed a childhood friend, who has always been involved with animals, either her own, or her kids, through FFA, etc.  I thought perhaps through her connections, she might know someone with a barn, that could use a couple of barn cats.  She recommended I call a local feed store and talk to them.  I did and the lady offered to take the kitten, but not the momma cat.  Had scheduling been different, I would have taken the kitten to her. 

Because of the amount of overtime hubby has been working and my allergy issues and worrying about trying to do the kitten transport by myself, I held off.  It's a good thing I did.  My sweet cousin, Linda, had sent out an email with pictures of the cats, to her good friend, Janice.  Janice, in turn, found a couple willing to take them both!  Momma cat and kitten are so close, I really hated the thought of separating them and now I didn't have to.  I can't tell you what a relief that was.  The plan is for them to be indoor cats... in a really nice home.

On Saturday, Linda and Janice arrived and the first thing Momma cat did was welcome them at the car.  Janice stepped out of the van and immediately stroked her, something I had been unable to do.  It did my heart good to see that.  She opened the back of the van, pulled out a small carrier and brought it over and sat it in the grass.  Momma cat didn't shy away.  Janice opened the carrier door and Momma nosed halfway inside and Janice nudged her in.  The kitten was watching from a few feet away, in the safety of the bushes.  Hubby was able to pick her up and she was put in the carrier with Momma, without any problems.  I can't tell you how concerned I was, that they would magically attain extra legs and cause dire wounds to the person attempting to contain them.  Whew!

There was no trauma, or cat cries, whatsoever, although I did have a few tears and will miss them.  Being able to only stroke them with my shoes, was not acceptable for such sweeties.  I hope they will have the love and affection they deserve and provide much joy to their adopted family.

I will end this post with a couple of pictures from Saturday.  Momma cat was impossible to take pictures of.  Every time I would squat down, she wanted to rub herself against me.  I only got one decent shot.

Thank you again, Linda, Janice and the new "Forever" Family!





   

The End!

Funny how you know it's for the best, but you'll still miss the little sneeze inducing buggers!

This is so beautiful! Just from the way you described how she came to get them, you could tell they were meant to be hers. :)

CiCi said...

Great solution. I sure wish I could have a cat. I really like the last photo, walking away.

So. Cal. Gal said...

The End!

Haha! Literally. ; )

The kitten is so stinkin' cute! I want one!

Btw, an outdoor cat that we feed found it's way into the house where we keep the food at night so the raccoons don't get at it. It's better than having a raccoon inside, which happened once.

the little tiger shot second to end says it all -- he was smiling for the camera! God bless your helping hand and your cousin -- sounds like the mama cat knew she would be going to a good home with her baby!

Such heartwarming mews that the two were re-homed to a warm and loving family who took them together. Think you earned another
pair of angel wings, one for each tear that fell...they obviously wanted to love you and we have no doubt they appreciate all you did on their behalf...sniff.
