New Additions Coming Soon!

~*:: The band of rescues by Graciel::::Photo, by Evenstar Art::*~

For those of you who have been following the saga of the stray kitties over at Evenstar Art, you know that these little band of cuties have captured the hearts of all that stop by.  They were resuced by the generous loving heart of Graciel and it is with her doing, these little scoundrels have been led into my life.

After the passing of my Sophie kitty, I knew that we would have to find a playmate for our little Coco.  He is a very social boy(ok, he's a lover) and he sincerely is lost without another playmate.   We figured that we would go to our local SPCA and find someone new in short measure.  All the while, the kitties saga was brewing behind the scenes.  The food, the carpet, the rescues...all for this little band of cuties named Coco, Puff and Creamsicle.

I remember telling Graciel that had Sophie not been sick, I would have taken one of them.  But, I didn't want to compromise any of the time that she had left by bringing someone new into the fold.  Within a week of mentioning this, Sophie took a dramatic turn for the worse...almost as if to say that it was ok for her to go in order for the others to survive. So, I made the decision the adopt both of the girl kitties ..without consulting the Mister.  (Although he was ok with it).

So you're thinking, great.  She's getting two new kitties.  Good for her!  But, today after a sweet suggestive email from Graciel asking if we would consider taking Creamsicle too (along with a heart wrenching picture of them in squalor, mind you) we have decided to take the three of them.  To tell you the truth, the more I kept looking at his picture, the more I wanted him to come home with us too.

 Sweet Cheese Whiz...now we will have 4.  I don't know who the crazier of the the cat ladies is, me or Gracie!

As of now, we will be getting the girls on Valentines Day with the possibility of Creamsicle as well.  I will keep all of you posted as things develop.

The meaning of all this madness for me...I have always wanted a big family.  The closeness that others experienced during their childhood years, I never experienced.  Sure, I had friends...in fact I had plenty.  But eventhough I was surrounded by others, I still felt a deep emptiness inside.  Things were never really permanent for us, and there was always someone else's family to spend the holidays with.  I know that they are animals, but they give me a sense of permanancy.  They create a grounding force around me that keeps my home centered.  And soon, I will have 4 in total.

One big happy family.

Aaaggckkhh, Darling....you know this makes me cry. For you, for me, for the kitty metaphors we have attracted into our lives.

I could not have picked a better scenario for these cats. My heart could not be more full.

Love to you and your BIG family.

2 girls, 2 boys, nice balance! I think you win the 'crazy cat lady' award. 3 is a hand full let me tell you, but the power of 4...is cat-attitude on whole new level! I'm sure everyone will have mucho fun, can't wait to meet them all. You do know that Sophie brought them to you, she knew what you wanted, so now your family is complete. Enjoy!

Hello Kasia! I've just stopped by to tell you thank you for having such a kind and generous heart to welcome these lovely cats into your home. I've been following along with the story told by Graciel, and I am so thrilled to hear these three very lucky felines will soon be able to join your family. Thank you for providing a happy ending.
