Saturday Snapshot invites bloggers to share photos. After a fall of changes, I’m here to introduce you to the newest member of our household.
August 18, I received an email from my friend Kathy asking me if I knew anyone who could foster a kitten. That email changed our household.
Initially, I emailed all my rescue friends for advice. To my surprise, when I later mentioned the kitten to Andy, he instantly reminded me about his desire to foster a kitten.
After that point, my emails took on a different focus. Now I wanted to find a rescue that would allow us to foster, but would ultimately be responsible for finding a forever home for Kathy’s rescue kitten.
From the start, Rainy endeared herself to us because not only did she love to play, but she also enjoyed snuggling next to Andy and me. While Cinder has her own ways of showing affection, being a lapcat isn’t one of them. ;-(
Not aware that we were only fostering her, Rainy made herself at home. She began to join Barnaby in greeting us when we would leave or return from work. She also became friends with him, as well as our other two cats.
A peaceful household didn’t happen overnight. Rainy actually became the glue that pulled all of our pets together. She never accepted rejection from any of them, but just kept initiating play. After several days, all three cats began to play more on their own, with her, and together.
Seeing how happy she made all our pets made for an easy decision. On September 12, we adopted Rainy.
Welcome Rainy to our home! We love you.
