My friend Sarah had paid a few visits to our Von Tussles and was quite smitten with little Malcolm. She was especially fond of his giant paws.
I would text her images of the dear boy from time to time, not because I was trying to encourage her to adopt him, she has a houseful already, but just because I knew she really liked the little guy.
During a haircut appointment, Sarah was talking with her stylist Carrie, and Carrie shared how she and partner Billy had recently lost their cat Smokey to cancer. He was a young cat, they loved him dearly, and his sudden passing truly broke their hearts. Their home was feeling so empty without him.
Sarah pulled out her phone and showed Carrie a photo of Malcolm that I had recently texted her, and told her all about the Von Tussle litter and the IBKC. Shortly afterwards, Carrie sent me a message. We made arrangements for a meet and greet, she came for a visit, and Carrie picked Malcolm and Greta.
In the brief time I spent with Carrie and Billy during their kitten visits and the adoption, I could clearly see they do have lots of love to give, and I'm so happy they adopted this pair.
Here's Greta feeling all comfy in Billy's arms.
Shortly after the adoption, Carrie posted this sweet message on Facebook:
I'm sure people will get sick of my cute kitten pics, but I can't help it! I don't do well in a home without critters and neither does Billy - they feed our souls. Even though we both are still sad about losing our friend Smokey in August, these two are so stinkin' sweet, and I can't wait to get home to see them. The house feels like a home again.
We're so happy for Malcom, Greta, Carrie and Billy, and wish them a long, wonderful life together!
We're thrilled your house feels like home again!
