Goodbye My Little Musselmans
New to Tacoma and newly married, Seth and Lynna were looking for a pair of kittens to add to their lives . They found Darla and Olly on the Humane Society's online list of available pets, and Lynna emailed me Thursday to find out if they had been spoken for. They sounded wonderful, so we set up a meet and greet for Friday afternoon.
I think before they arrived, Lynna and Seth had made up their minds, these kittens were theirs, and meeting them was just a formality. It seemed the kittens knew this too, because I have to say, they didn't try very hard to impress them. They just napped comfortably in their laps.
I suppose just by showing how at ease they felt with these strangers, they were showing who they really are: sweet, trusting, little kittens. There was no need for somersaults, leaps, pounces or any other kitten antics to impress these folks. They just needed to say, "we love".
We chatted for awhile, filled out the paperwork, said our goodbyes and off the little family went.
I got an email from Lynna and it sounds as though the kittens are adjusting nicely to their new home, and of course, they love them already. Of course.
Spending the past week with the Twins, minus their litter mates, we really got to know these two. They are truly enchanting little beings and it was such a pleasure having them here. We miss them dearly, but wish them the best. Mostly, we're so happy they stayed together.
