And Finally, Fern
Fern was the last Lyttelton to make weight, the last Lyttelton to leave, but the first kitten to get picked.
For quite some time Leslie, Fern's new mama, had been looking for a playmate for her 1 year old kitty, Roux. She had been checking out local rescues and shelters and had no luck. She mentioned to her friends Chris and Carrie (who happen to by my friends too) that she was looking for a kitten, and they suggested she contact me.
She came to meet the Drapers, but her friend (Kelly) ended up adopting Millie and Gordon and her other friend (Mimi) ended up adopting Luella and Perry.
Next two litters were pairs (Walter and Ira, Vivienne and Theodore) and those two pairs HAD to remain pairs. Both were too close to separate.
Leslie waited patiently until finally, The Lytteltons arrived. She had pick of the litter, and she picked Fern.
Because Fern was the last to go, she got to spend a little extra time with Charlene. In their last days, they had a great time frolicking together, playing hide-and-go-seek, and chasing each other up and down the stairs. It was so good for Fern. She got to spend some one-on-one with a big cat and Charlene had a chance to teach her about big cat boundaries. Hopefully she took something away from their time together and is showing her big sister lots of respect.
It took a very long time to get her kitten, but I think sweet little Fern was worth waiting for, and meant to be a part of Leslie's family.
.... And don't you think "Fern and Roux" sound good together. I like it.
Perfect, perfect, as always, perfect. Thank you Universe. Once again, you managed to send the most amazing families our way.
I do believe, without a doubt, that all these little Lytteltons were meant to be where they are.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Universe.
