In the past couple years, she and Patrick had lost a pair senior cats. Since the passing of these two beloved cats, many friends had sent links to adoptable kittens, but Wendy just wasn't quite ready to pursuit any of those leads.
But when she received two emails from two friends, both sharing a link to the post about Effie and Hazel, Wendy felt the Universe might be giving her a nudge, so she clicked on the link and fell in love.
"These are our kittens," she thought upon first sight.
She sent a very nice email introducing herself and shared with me the life she and Patrick could offer these special girls. They sounded kind and absolutely perfect, and I emailed back, and we arranged for a meet and greet.
Effie and Hazel are fearless and friendly, and with these two, there's never a single scaredy-cat moment spent under the couch. They are always happy to say hello to anyone who enters our home, and when Wendy and Patrick came into our home and sat down on the floor, the girls were quick to greet them and show them their bright, charming little selves.
We all had a lovely visit. Wendy and Patrick were clearly delighted by this dear pair, and left with huge smiles on their faces. Yes indeed, these were their kittens.
The kittens still had to put on a half pound before they were ready for surgery and adoption, and I'm sure these few weeks must have been pure torture for their adopters. Imagine being in Wendy and Patrick's shoes, and having to wait weeks for this adorable pair to come home. During this time they did all of their kitten-proofing, and purchased all of the necessary kitten supplies, and finally, surgery day came, all went well, and after Effie and Hazel had some time to heal, Wendy and Patrick returned to pick up their girls.
Wendy emailed once they were safely home and the kittens had a chance to settle in. She said they did well on the long ride to Seattle, and seemed very happy in their new surroundings. Wendy and Patrick are thrilled having these dear kittens in their lives, and they promise to give them the very best care, and send us lots of updates!
Wendy and Patrick, thank you for adopting this special pair. We're grateful the Universe pointed you in our direction. We'll miss your babies dearly, but knowing that they are in a place where they will loved and adored, makes their departure bearable.
And yes, please send updates.
Good bye, dear Effie and Hazel. We were lucky to spend these months with you, and watch you both grow from tiny, fragile things to robust kittens. We saw your personalities take shape and shine, and getting to know you, was truly a pleasure. You were the perfect little set to introduce Wylla to the world of fostering, and ease us back into it We are grateful you landed in our nest.
We wish you the very best, and we hope you bring your new family many years of happiness and joy.
