Orphan Kitties

Not One, But Two Homeless Kitties

Well, there was an unexpected, two surprises this weekend.  Out for morning coffee and wandering around in the parking lot, was a tiny little kitty.  Before I could finish the phrase, "Here kitty, kitty," she was under our car peeking out from the behind the tires.  A second more and she was in my husband's arms.  What could we do? 

Coffee delayed until after a quick trip to the Clearview Animal Hospital in Hanover.  They are terrific folks there.  They gave her the once over and tested for the dreaded FIV/feline leukemia.  Negative meant life. I was glad.  She spent the night curled up in our mudroom and with a full belly safe from the elements.  Never did get that morning joe.

That would have been the end of it. However, I had a definite feeling there was still a kitty out there... a litter mate perhaps, or the mum.  It did not take much deliberation, so in the rain, we went back to where we found the first little girl. 

OK, you guessed it, and the title gives it away.  Number two was soaked and shivering under a bush.  Our Vet once again, gave a good prognosis for number two. 

BOTH girls now reside in our mudroom.

A dear friend is considering adopting.  It is a big decision though so some time is needed for it to be the right one.  They each met and love her already, so it would be an easy fit into a new household if they go......Sigh. 

Most of the studio work did not get done this weekend.  There were more pressing matters at hand in the form of hugs, petting and flea combing.  Work will resume again tomorrow and at break time, a couple of kittens will need attention.

Simply splendid, don't you agree? I am thinking there will be two more ornaments on our "family tree" of ornaments, custom designed by Simply Pretty Stuff, of course.
