Pretty Boy Floyd Picks His Girl
Just days after the Tiptons arrived and I introduced them on the IBKC, I got an email form Kathy, who was in search of a fluffy kitten for her daughter Sarah.
The family has another cat, a year-old girl named Misty, but she's shared between seven family members and more than anything, Sarah wanted a kitten to love and call her very own.
At that point in time, the Tiptons weren't quite ready to receive guests - they were too busy hiding and hissing. Sarah and her family waited patiently for the kittens to settle into our home and come out of their shells, and once they did, we set up an appointment for a meet and greet.
When Sarah and family arrived, we sat down and watched the Tiptons bounce around and we discussed the merits of each kitten. This kitten-picking business was serious stuff, and it was clear that Sarah wanted to be sure to make the right choice. Of course, when you're picking a kitten from a set of three adorable Tiptons, there is no wrong choice to be made!
While we chatted, Floyd stopped for a moment and cuddled up right next to Sarah's foot. This tipped the scale in Floyd Tipton's favor, and it was decided, he was the one.
Sarah picked her kitten. Floyd picked his girl.
In the excitement of it all, the family forgot to bring their kitty carrier along, so I found a box in our basement, lined it with a blanket, and labeled it accordingly.
And off they went.
Good bye, Floyd!
We're so thrilled you found a sweet little girl to give you all the love you deserve. You're going to be so happy together.
