If I hadn’t been dealing with sick kittens all week, I would have tried to come up with a tease for today’s post. I am announcing an adoption today. It’s one I’ve known about for quite a while, but it only recently came all the way together. Let me take you back to the ONE hint I gave a couple of months ago.
A friend of Winnie’s Wish (Shirley) was in a neighboring town for a reunion. She came out to my place to see the cathouse and the Winnie’s Wish Walkway and to bring a really nice care package. You can read that post here. Now to the hint. In that post, underneath the picture of Shirley’s goodies I wrote this:
Shirley, it was SO nice to meet you and your dad. I can’t thank you enough for your gifts to Winnie’s Wish.
Shirley has ANOTHER gift for Winnie’s Wish. As soon as I know more about that gift, I will share it on the blog.
While Shirley was visiting, she completely shocked me by telling me that she had been watching a certain Winnie’s Wish kitty and was considering adoption. She asked if this kitty was still here and she wanted to meet her. Shirley told me that this particular cat was a combination of her two favorite types of kitties. Are you trying to guess? Shirley and this kitty met, and there was definitely a connection. As is so often the case, it is probably true that Shirley and this Winnie’s Wisher were meant to end up with each other.
Now, the problem was that Shirley was not in a position to take her chosen one back home with her on that trip. We talked about possibilities. I explained that we could put it on the blog and see what we could do about trying to set up a transport. Also – Shirley has volunteered with a particular transport operation and thought there might be a chance to work part of the trip out through them. Shirley and I stayed in touch. At some point I received a text from her that there was a chance she would be traveling to Nashville, TN at the end of the summer to visit family. She wondered if we might work it out to meet when she was so much closer while in Nashville. I told her absolutely we could meet halfway.
SO . . . THIS SUNDAY, I will get up early and head in the direction of Nashville. Shirley will get up and head in my direction. We will meet halfway, and I will turn over Shirley’s chosen one to her. Which Winnie’s Wisher is it?
Kippie was very unhappy in the cathouse. She has been living in my kennel office with Quinn, Isis, and Goldie where she has been much happier. Since Shirley and Kippie met, I've been excited about Kippie's future. It has taken us a while to work out the transport details, but this Labor Day weekend another Winnie’s Wisher will be on the way to a REAL home. Shirley and I will meet halfway on Sunday. It will be Kippie’s first day of The Good Life.
See you next week.
