Aby-a-Day – 11 August: Thank heaven for little girls!

Yesterday was Lorelai’s six-month birthday!

When this little girl joined our family, she was like a beam of joyful sunshine piercing through dark stormclouds. We had intended her to be a show partner for Logan, and decided to get her before we realised he was sick. Her pickup day was a little less than a month after we lost Logan, and we did wonder if it was too soon. We know FIP isn’t contagious, but we cleaned everything anyway; we just wondered if it was too soon for us to deal with a new kitten so soon after dealing with two deaths.

We should never have worried. From the moment we saw her in Eva’s motorhome, she loved us. She came into our home like she had always been there, purring and playing. She never had a litterbox issue, never hid or cried or seemed to miss her siblings or mother at all. She’s a happy, loving, active, fearless little cat, with a good-natured, sunny personality. She’s perfect.

Happy half-birthday, little girl!

  1. Sometimes things are just meant to be… Sparkle died on a Thursday, and my human brought me home Sunday night. Almost four years ago now.
