The Tiniest Gift, arriving from where???

 

Little Ginger Boy #2

First of all, so many heartfelt thanks for all your caring loving words and messages. The final opinion, when I looked at the typed discharge form, was “ Muscular-skeletal” , so maybe a strain of some kind. No more moving furniture for some time!!! A warning to all who might be in the “senior-age” category, take life slowly, savour every day that is good, and be so thankful for friends and family who love, and care so much.

Mother’s Day, a quiet day at home, a beautiful pot of scented hyacinth from Joyce, as she said “ You are the Mum in this home”. A gift to be enjoyed for many years, as they will bloom again and again.

Dinner was finished, I was updating some paper work, and heard this tiny “MEOW”, thinking it was  on TV, ignored it. There it was again. I turned on the outdoor light, and right on the step, the tiniest ginger kitten, walking round in circles, tail wagging. Picked him up, showed Hugh, and went to take him into Joyce.

“Close your eyes”, she did, I placed him in her hands. “Oh MY, where did he come from?”  He is a mystery, no other cats round, no other little kittens, no lost ones reported locally on Monday a.m. He is feisty, hungry, and the ultimate in purring.

So affectionate, and maybe 6 weeks old!!! What do we do, Hugh would like to keep him, Joyce too, I would, but am practical, maybe a little sad,( amended to hugely so)  but we already have Felicity ( who  growled and spat at the sight of him) and Ginger Boy, and the local Vet Clinic think they have a home for him. After 2 days, how much of your heart can this wee fellow take over??

Quotation of the day from Leonardo da Vinci

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece”

Greetings from Jean

That ginger boy is irresistible. I would take him in a heart beat if he were on my side of the planet. No doubt he will be adopted by a good home. And yes, folk of a certain vintage (like myself) must be careful not to go over their physical limits. Hope you recover soon and up your coffee break time allowance. Cheers.

Oh boy, what a sweetheart, and he has already wormed himself into a post and hearts. Did you know that the purring of cats is healing?

Take it easy dearest Jean.

Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

Happy Belated Mother's Day! I love the cute kitten, Adorable! Enjoy your new week ahead!

Barb said...

Oh my, Jean - surely you can't resist. It is meant to be! Awwww....

I am highly allergic to cats. But I still love them. I bet he's going to have a great home no matter where it is. Carol

Cats have a way about finding who the want as family and who they can help. Looks lie this little fellow says you are it! gOOD LUCK!

What a darling kitten. Nikko has been wishing for such a buddy but Piper??? he is just tolerating the people who stick their hands into the cage to feed him.

What a darling kitty-cat, Jean! I adore cats, but Terry doesn't like living with them. We don't have a pet, because we love to travel, but I lavish love on all the extended family pets whenever I can. I'm relieved to hear that you had nothing serious discovered. Wise words on approaching life in later years. Take care!

I heed your words and follow them closely but sometimes exuberance wins out. I use ice and heat a lot nowadays.
Ginger Boy, so sweet so soft so you guys!
Winks!
Recover quickly and yes take one day at a time!

So good that you had a nice Mother's Day. And what a sweet kitten. It is hard to decide whether to keep a new pet and it is good that maybe you can find a good home for him!

Weekend-Windup said...

You must have a good time with the new comer to your home!

Allie said...

Oh isn't he adorable!!!! But yes, be practical - I've already made the decision that we'll have no more - if they can find him a good home, that would probably be best. But I can see why he would steal your heart!!!

Mildred said...

Visiting with you via Eggs In My Pocket and TexWis. That is the cutest little kitten. We have 6 rescues. Recently, we had a stray dog who was so friendly but we are not able to care for it. We paid for her to have all the necessary shots etc. and now she is up for adoption. Praying she goes to a good home too.
Hope you get to feeling better.

Kate said...

After 2 days he can steal all of your heart. He is just adorable and I am so glad he found a good home. I think he just popped in to see if you knew of anyone who needed a kitten hug.

Tanya said...

Keep him! He will remind you Poppy... Anyway, it is good that you have helped him so far and that you will see him to a good home someplace.

Joy said...

So sweet little thing! We have a cat too which we adopted when her caretaker went to live in the nursing home!
