Your Pet's Rescue Story
Cat - My Best Friend Rescue White
A good friend of mine found a stray in her neighborhood that happened to be pregnant. She started caring for her and made it her mission to find homes for the kittens that were to be born as well as the mother (and she was successful with finding good homes for all!) At the time she rescued the pregnant mom and during the months she would ask me if I could adopt and show pictures of the adorable kittens. My boyfriend’s favorite was the calico one from the moment they were born. I loved them all but we had an elderly cat of 16 years that was not doing well and I didn’t think the energy of a kitten would make things easier for him. I lost Mickey two weeks shy of his 17th birthday. It was a very difficult time for me and my boyfriend and knew I needed time to grieve and was unable to adopt. Several weeks later when the kittens were old enough, my friend found a home for five out of six kittens and their mother. There was one kitten left to find a home and I promised her although I couldn’t keep her I would help her find a home for the last kitten and agreed to foster her. Fostering lasted a total of two seconds. From the moment I held her I knew she was family and she brought life and joy back into our quiet home. Holly Golightly’s playful spirit brightened our days and the timing of her coming into our lives helped us grieve and remember all the wonderful memories we shared with Mickey through his lifetime and not dwell on the sadness of his loss.
