Never, ever in my life did I picture me to be where I am now. A few weeks back, a beautiful kitten emerged from my basement. I taught Malenky all he needed to know. I fed him with a bottle and a syringe. I taught him how to poop and how to pee. I introduced him to a litter box.
People said if there was one I’d find, there would be more. And they were right! Malenky had three siblings – one brother, and two sisters – and all just gorgeous! It was a trying time, but eventually – all of them were with us, and they were all together.
Having so many, this was not an ideal situation. As you all know, my beautiful boy JB is not doing well – he is dying, from nasal cancer. My heart breaks and my voice cracks when I even think about this. I had three kittens here, with the exception of Malenky – who no way, no how was going anywhere. My ex-husband and his girlfriend wanted a kitten, so they took one of the girls – Anastasia left with them this afternoon. I felt bad seeing her go, but I know she’s got a great home. And I will be able to see her, see how she’s growing, so…all is good.
I love taking care of these cats, but I know I cannot do the foster thing – I have gotten too attached, so from now on – care, from a far. I promise to always donate to shelters, and do whatever I can do. And the boys and girls (only 2!) will be treated like royalty – I promise…
