Cotton was born to a large feral colony that my mom cares for. We rescued him and his siblings along with 17 other kittens this spring. We caught all the feral cats and took them to be spay/neutered and returned to mom's. I kept all the kittens, taking most of them to PetsMart to be adopted out. Some of the kittens got sick and had to come back to my house so that I could nurse them back to health. I cared for Picabo, Cotton, Buffett, and Cleo because they were feral and not ready to be placed at PS. I got very attached to every cat that I brought home. While I didn't intend on keeping any kittens, I ended up keeping 6, bringing my total to 12. IT was a difficult choice to make. Both Cotton and Picabo adapted really well to all the cats already in my house and the new kittens I was introducing but Cleo and Buffett needed extra attention. WE decided to let my rescue organization take Cleo, Buffett, and Picabo to PS to be tamed and adopted out. Picabo was taken within the first couple of days but Cleo and Buffett were there two months. They really blossomed during that time since they were handled and loved a lot. There were adopted and went to thier new home 1 week before Christmas 2005. I have already called their new parents and they are doing well. Just somewhat scared...I made these new parents promise to return them to me if they were unable to keep them for any reason. Anyway, I made a conscience decision to do what was best for these kittens after much thought and prayer. WE kept Cotton and love him dearly.
Mom originally named me "Buffy" but later discovered, much to her suprise, that I was not a "she". I already knew my name so she had to change it to something similiar and Buffett was the only thing she could think of and of course she is a Parrot head so that helps.

I am so confused....Mom took us to this place that had lots of other cats and lots of people like mom. We were in this glass cage with lotssss of toys and things to climb on. Cleo and I didn't really mind it too much. Our sister Picabo was there with us at first but then someone came and got her and we have never seen her again. Mom told us that she got a really good "new" home with some very sweet people. SHe calls this place we went too "PetsMart"! She cried and told us we would find a really good home where we could get more love. We didn't understand because we really loved our mom so much. She told us that she had to give us up because we were still so feral and that being around so many other cats just wasn't good for us. She said it would be better if we had "one on one attention". We stayed in this place for two months. Mom came and told us that she would be there that Saturday to take us home for forever. We were really excited but mom didn't come. SHe told us later that she got held up and was intending to get us Sunday. Anyway, this man, lady and young man came and held us twice. I heard them tell the lady watching us that they were thrilled that we were still there and that they wanted us. I thought "oh no, what will mom think if we aren't here when she comes" Mom did come though and she brought us back to house to see Cotton, our brother. We just went right back to where we left off. She kept taking all these pictures of us and we didn't understand it much. It was funny because mom gets made at my sister, says she never cooperates with the picture taking. Mom explained to us that we would be going to a new home on December 23rd and that she was keeping us until then. She told us that we needed to understand that she wasn't giving us up because she didn't love us but because she loved us so much she wanted to give us the best life possible. We had so much fun with mom...we got to play in her paper...she was putting all this neat stuff in the paper and we kept pouncing on it and making her laugh. She got this call and she got upset. I heard her say that our new parents wanted us early and mom cried. I felt so bad for her. She picked us both up and held us, she said for one last time and she sqeezed me so hard I thought I would squish. She told Cleo to take good care of me and to never loose her "spirit". Not sure what that word means but mom says she loves Cleo's spirit...Anyway, mom stuffed us in this box and off we went back to that place called PetsMart. Mom put us in a different cage and we cried and cried for her. WE loved on her face and stuck our feet though the cage. Mom cried very hard. SHe told us that we had a nice home and not to forget how much she loved us...she kept saying she was giving us enough love for a lifetime. We went to our new home that night and we are doing really well. Still very afraid and shy...but we know we will never forget out first mom...we love her and she loves us!
