Adopting Love

Love-Love was a miracle baby. She was found as a feral kitten in a barn and would elude capture for weeks and weeks...until she got sick. When her rescuer found her, she was so sick that she was limp and let her pick her up in her arms. She brought her to Michelle and Saving Paws, and Michelle immediately cared for her with all the special ways you can try and save a dying kitten...which require a lot of time, money and effort. She and her sister tag-teamed her care, and after a few weeks, she was finally eating on her own and started to act like a normal kitten again.

So we put Love on the adoption floor, but she was so scared and timid, she would get overlooked. I interacted with this sweet little dilute calico many times when I was out there, and I began to feel a strong connection with her. It was meant to be that I adopt her.

After an interesting conversation with my husband about how the only thing that would make me feel better about turning 30 would be to adopt a sweet little kitten...he caved, and Love came home to live at the Anderson casa. 

By the way, she is the spunkiest, goofiest, cutest little love-bug now...definitely anything BUT shy. She is a joy and we are so blessed to have her.

And then there were three...
