Although my siblings were cute...mom knew instantly that she wanted to adopt my momma.
She had no idea that she'd be taking both of us home. Mom and her sister came out to visit us. The decision was made, she would be adopting my momma Ellie (then known as Libby), but she'd have to be patient until all of the kittens were weaned. Then 2 weeks after that first visit my dad came with my mom to visit us. It was at that second visit that they noticed little me. By that time all of my brothers and sisters were spoken for. They learned that no one had even called to inquire about me. Dad was smitten with me...there was no way he was going to pick up my momma in 2 weeks and leave me without my mother or my siblings....no way. They made the decision to adopt both me and my momma! They came back 2 weeks later with a cat carrier built for 2!
Here is the text of our Petfinder ad:
***What you are looking at is a miracle. Libby and her 6 nursing defenseless kittens were left behind with no food and no protection from raccoons and coyotes who wanted to make them dinner. They were rescued by a good Samaritan and turned into the program. Libby was very weak from not having any food, yet still having to provide for her family. Despite her desperate situation, Libby never lost her wonderful attitude and personality. Not only is she a wonderful mother but an ideal companion for your home, She is trusting of strangers and loving to all she meets. She will be available soon as the kittens have been weaned and she will be spayed. There are 5 seal point kittens. 3 girls and 2 boys. One of the boys looks to be lynx point. The other baby is pure black, not sure of sex yet. Although Libby and kittens won't be ready for a new home until mid may, we are putting holds on them when they are ready. If you would like to adopt or have questions,please call or email us!! **UPDATE** Libby and all siamese babies have been adopted, BUT we still have one pure black female kitten still available!!! Please bring this sweet kitten home today!!!***
Yes, that sweet kitten was me!
