Goodbye Girls

I knew there was a special family out there for Victoria and Cheryl. We just had to wait for them to find their way to us.

 Well, finally they came!

Through a series of links, Elaine and Ed found their way to the Humane Society website where they saw Victoria and Cheryl.  From there, they came to the IBKC, read all about the girls, and knew they would be the perfect kittens for them.

I knew the second I read Elaine's email that she and her husband Ed would be the perfect parents for these two. She just said all the right things and sounded so very, very nice. We spoke on the phone the next morning and had a good, long conversation and yep, she was very, very nice.

Ed and Elaine are the kind of people who love their kittens like they are their own children and THOSE are the kind of people we always like to adopt to.

So even though it took a while for them to get here, they were worth the wait.  

I've had lots of email exchanges with Ed and Elaine and it sounds like the girls are doing really great.   They're having fun exploring their new home together and are enjoying the giant cat tower placed in front of the window overlooking the lake.  It's a great view and an excellent place to watch the wildlife.  They are getting to know their new parents and already are giving them lots of love and many purrs.

I know I've said this before, and I'll say it again, but I am so grateful for the wonderful people that find their way to us and adopt our kittens.  Knowing our babes are going to homes like this where they'll be given all the love these special little beings deserve, is what makes it bearable to part with them.  

We are so, so lucky.

And so are these kittens.

And so are Ed and Elaine.

Thank you, Universe!
