It Was Meant to Be
A few years ago, a local TV station did a little feature on the IBKC on a magazine program. Every now and again they re-air the clip, which is always great, because it always means more local people finding their way to the blog.
A week or so ago, Kevin and Michael were talking, and Kevin suggested they should get a little kitten friend for their cat, Sweet Pea. Shortly after these words left his mouth, the IBKC clip came on TV.
It was a funny coincidence that this segment should air just then. Michael, who is a firm believer of signs, took this cue and she paid a visit to the IBKC where she promptly fell in love with a certain little Tortie girl.
Kevin emailed me to see if we had any kittens available. At that time Buster and Susannah Rose were spoken for, and I thought Kenneth had found his home too, so I told him Tilda was the only available kitten.
Perfect. She was the one they had their eyes on.
They came down to meet her last week and were completely enchanted the second they met the girl. Tilda loved them instantly, too. She purred, and purred and rolled around happily in their laps. It was so clear she was completely comfortable with them, and she was meant to be theirs.
On Sunday, a very excited Kevin and Michael returned to pick up their little girl. Miss Tortellini was all suited-up in her new collar and tag, and was set to go.
Buster was obsessed with Tilda's new accessories, which made it difficult to take her graduation photos. That's Buster. Always such a curious little boy.
The paperwork was filled out, we said our goodbyes, and off went the little family.
I couldn't be happier for Tilda, Kevin and Michael.
They were meant to be together.
