Meant To Be

Thanks to all of you who supported me through the whole kitten episode, and have also said that, maybe, it was meant to be. Looking back and thinking about it, I think the kittens were calling me, telling me their momma needed help. That is why they disappeared right after I took her. It was a grand scheme, to save a cat who would otherwise have perished; bearing another litter in the cold, rain and snow of late November. A poor cat, still a kitten herself, whose fur was thin, her body ravaged, her spirit broken. Looking at her face, in the first pictures I took, I only see sadness and pain. Now looking at her, I see joy, happiness and fulfillment. She has already started to fill out!

I appreciate, so much, all of your comments. I wanted to get around to all of your blogs, but I simply haven't had the time. Please know, you all mean so much to me. Thanks, all of you. (The picture was taken the day I brought her home, she snuggled up to me.)

    Oh is Patches Lady doing okay with her now? How is Mittens doing? What about Mistrie? What does she think of another indoor kitty?

    We cats think all cats should have homes, but we prefer that they not be in OUR homes...

    Many of you are asking how Precious is doing with the girls.

    Last night she came waltzing out of the bedroom and walked into the livingroom, past Mittens (who growls if she gets too close) and jumped up on the rocker (Patches was right below it) She peeked over at Patches who meowed her discontent, then proceeded to tuck her little paws and lie down. Then she studied her domain for a while, jumped back down, and THEN....used the girls litter box!!! After that, she went in her round bed, happy with what she had accomplished.

    We are glad to hear that Precious Flower is adjusting! We hopes it doesn't take too long for the Girls to fully accept her.

    We missed so much (good and sad) while our beans were away. We're glad this is one of the good things!

    What a story! We are so glad you were there for them and PF is such a gorgeous girlie! We love her attitude to Patches G& Mittens: "I'm here. Deal with it!"

    some things are just meant to be. that's what my Mom says 'bout me and her, that we were meant to be. (i love that, it makes me puuuuur)

    I always believe those that we need to be there when we need them to will be there. You were there for Precious. It was meant to be. She's safe and getting better now you can start to concentrate on you. It's going to be so cute to picture your pretty girls all lookin' up at you while you're laying there in bed staring at the floor while recuping from your surgery! Make sure Dad takes pics.

    Buddah and I have been discussing this, because he's wanted to know about angels and such...I think angels come in all forms, and PK (she's gonna be PK to me, even if she is a Flower...) had angels in kitten form. She was obviously not feral and really needed a People, and her kittens made sure she got a People.

    It's kind of like the Younger Human picking Buddah out of all the kitties he could have picked. He can't dwell on all those kitties and whether or not they got forever homes because it would make him nuts, he just has to know that Buddah is here for a reason, even if I don't like it.

    I was thinking the same thing as Max, wondering if maybe those babies were really angels helping Precious to find you.
