My female human told me a secret today: Our family will be adopting a boy kit-teen soon! He is ~6-7 months old and very sweet. He was brought into our local shelter when he was 8 weeks old. He had a broken leg that didn’t set properly, so one of his legs is disabled (it is bent at the joint underneath the paw and he is only able to limp on the side of that paw). The humane society vet said the leg is healthy and he is not in pain, and it doesn’t need to be amputated. We will check with Uncle Dr. Kraft after we adopt him to make sure he isn’t in pain or uncomfortable.
My humans won’t hear about their application until early next week but decided to share the news with me because I’m a good girl. *puffs up chest* Not like some cats I could mention (like Hetty Miep “the Cape” Wainthrop or Elvin and his mean Evil Twin).
My human says this new adoption is bittersweet: she is happy to adopt a new kitty into our family but also sad because she still misses my brother Garp.
That's so nice Hilda. I know she misses Garp. But what a wonderful thing you guys are doing! Can't wait to meet him.
That's good, Hilda. You have a great Mom. She's turning her grief into good for another creature.
I knew you were a good girl, Hilda! Sharing the secret is good, too! :)
I can't wait to meet the lucky new addition to your family.
How exciting, Hilda! We can't wait to meet your new brother! Remember, you're in charge of teaching this new kitten how to act. An occasional smacky paw is okay!
