KaTwo’s Story and Selfie Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone!  I am happy to report that I didn’t see a single flea dead or alive yesterday. I hope it stays that way, but we will keep using flea products for several months.

Today is “Every cat has a story day” and I have already told you about 13 of our 15. Today is KaTwo’s Day and what a story she has. My first kitty ever, KaChoo passed away in 2010 and I was devastated. She was a beautiful tabby and in 2012, I saw one on Petfinder that looked similar. This one was a little lighter in color  but had a sassy face that made me think of my KaChoo. She was in New Jersey so my sweet mom agreed to take me to get her because I am a wimp about driving on highways.This was her Petfinder photo:littletigerAnd this was my beautiful KaChoo:KaChoo3.

I had seen other tabbies online, but something compelled me to get Little Tiger ( her former name). She was very friendly in her cage and rubbed against us for a minute. Then…she started chasing her tail and screeching and I knew I was in trouble. I said I was adopting her and she had been in the shelter for well over a year so I wasn’t going to change my mind. She was incredible on the extra long ride home ( we got lost and ended up in traffic in NYC). I think she was relieved to be out of that noisy shelter, there were so many dogs barking in the next room.

I will go into detail on Behavior and Medical day about her “issues”. I am actually glad her personality is not like KaChoo’s because no one could replace her. I think KaChoo knew this kitty needed someone that could deal with her and led me to her which also led me to Snowball (I wrote about her in July).

Damn! Lucy just came to visit me and I saw a flea- I guess I spoke to soon.  I got it though so hopefully that was it. Phoebe wanted to do a selfie for Selfie Sunday: 010

  1. Phoebe, you did great on your selfie. Thank you for joining our hop today. I was drawn to Astrid the moment I saw her on Pet Finder. KaChoo definitely led you to KaTwo knowing she need you. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Sparkle had a saying: “Humans don’t always get the cat they want, but they always get the cat they need.” Sounds so true here!

  3. Over a year in a shelter? That’s a really, REALLY long time. So much better to have a forever home and lovin’ peeps, huh?

    Purrs,

    PS. Those fleas can be relentless. MO– USES!

    1. Yes, over a year and Snowball was there for 2 years, I am glad I went back for her even though it took me 15 months ( that long before we had an opening due to the sad passing of Barney).
