Well, this was an interesting couple of days.
I received a call I missed and a text message. Concerned, because I do not get many calls. It turned out that a small kitten had been found at the church. They were not sure if someone had left it there, or if it had somehow traveled there somewhere in the engine of a car. No matter how it had arrived at the church, the kitten needed a home. My name came to mind due to the care I’ve been given to the cats here. I told them that I couldn’t take the kitten, but I would do what I could to find it a home.
I then posted about the kitten on my social media page. I also contacted someone who had adopted kittens from litters here. I thought they had a friend who was considering adopting a kitten. Turned out they had already found one but this individual would help me search. They asked a few questions and wanted to see a photo if I had one.
I heard from them again a bit later, they decided to adopt this kitten since they had lost one of their cats. I contacted the individual who had the kitten and arranged for them to bring it to me.
This kitten was super cute, tiny, but very vocal. I could hear this kitten meowing all the way through the house. Moxie and Mojo would look at the kitten as if they were thinking, ‘would you just hush?’ The kitten even managed to climb over the barrier I had in front of the door, come through the house directly to where I was standing. This kitten wanted and needed to be with people. He had been taken to a vet who estimated him to be four to six weeks old and weighed less than a pound. But he seemed healthy and loving.
I kept him over night and even though he annoyed the other two, they got along well enough. When his new family came after him she was excited to finally have him. The last word I got was that he was fitting in with their family well and was definitely loved. A kitten who arrived out of nowhere for a family who had lost a well loved part of their family. Nothing happens by chance.
So for everyone of my friends who had a part, no matter how small, in the saving of this kitten, He is safe and he is loved. Its funny, the kitten was here for less than twenty-four hours, but he filled the house with his presence. It does seem a little emptier without him.
