A year ago we fostered a young kitteh for a friend who encountered hard times

A SWEETIE. This is Sidney.




But she needed to be an only kitteh. Smart, curious, arguing with the big males all the time but dog friendly. Two weeks ago my beloved ex called me to ask if we knew anyone who had a cat for a Mom and her developmentally challenged child. Like most of us, they didn't have a pot to piss in. We sent Sid's picture to them and they fell in love. Her doctors felt a pet would be good for her. And so did we.

We spent Sunday morning buying big bags of cat food and litter, hooded cat pan, toys, dishes, the works for them. By the way, kitteh is up to date on all of her shots and is fixed. Yesterday afternoon we brought Sid up to meet her new Moms at my beautiful daughter's house. When they finally arrived we made it known the 'kitteh in the box' was hers.

Upon opening the carrier door, Sid immediately began to 'make bread' and snuggle the hand of the little girl. We knew they were a perfect fit.

Iris (the little girl) who doesn't speak, just makes noises mostly, turned to her Mom and said "thank".

You have never seen a room of adults break into tears of joy like that before.

We all done good.


Good luck Sidney and Iris, live long and love each other forever.
