On July 30th of this year, I stopped at our vet's office to drop off Ginger for boarding while we were gone on a trip....
That's when it happened...
I fell in love!
Our dear vet (let's call him John) had a tiny kitten in his office. Someone found her injured and starving and brought her to him so he could put her to sleep. He took her back to his office and gave her a little food. She gobbled it up. At this point she weighed 8 ounces. I'm guessing she purred and that was it...he was in kitty love. He couldn't put her to sleep. She had a leg injury and wasn't very mobile. He and his staff nursed her back to health. They petted her and loved her. "John" wanted to bring her home
We thought about her for a week...We named her Peaches (because she looks like peach ice cream). When I could take it no more, I sent "John" a facebook message. Katherine and I were desperate for our vacation to end so we could see if Peaches was still there.
We were not disappointed. "John" saved her for us. She weighed about 4 pounds when we got her two weeks ago. She now weighs about 5 pounds. Everyone loves her!
She and Ginger are bonding. Macy adores her. (Sorry no photo.) Macy gives her kisses and follows her around.
She's pretty happy, as are the rest of us...
(She probably will always have a limp, but her purrs make up for it.)
Did you have anything happen this summer that has left a lasting smile on your face?
(I'm planning on posting once a week from now on. Unless I have a burning issue that I feel compelled to post. This will give me more time to visit everyones' blogs and to continue with the good writing habits I established in August.)
I hope everyone had a wonderful month! (((Hugs)))
