The tiny tabby is now being called Riza. (thanks Normy!) Great suggestion.
This is for Ri-ley and Za-ck. We still have her here, but that may be drawing to a close.
Mom has stressed and worried about whether or not to give her up. She says she needs a push, one way or the other, so she knows she is doing the right thing. Well, Saturday, she and dad took Riza up to be weighed again, and to show our vet how much tamer she has become. She gained a little, weighing 1.7 pounds now, from 1.5. The vet was out, but his wife was there, so momma carried her into her office to show off. (she is really precious)
The vet's wife said her oldest daughter (married), had lost her very loved cat of 12 years, just a couple months ago, and was still greiving. She asked mom if the kitten needed a home.
Mom hestitated, and the lady immediately picked up on it and said, "If you change your mind..." Well, mom thought about it all weekend. They can give her everything she could ever want. But more important, she could give this girl the love she needs right now. This is going to be an exceptional kitten, she is smart, sweet, playful, and will make someone a wonderful lifelong companion. The vet's wife said she would question her daughter about whether or not she was ready. So mom is going to offer her to this family. This is a hard thing to do...
But If they say no, then maybe she was meant for us, all along.
Thank you all for following Riza's story, and for all the helpful comments.
Going to go and sprinkle some angel dust on my fiancee now. In Maine, that will be like sparkly snow! If I don't get back here again, for a bit, have a wonderful and very merry Christmas.
Love & purrs,

What a lucky little kittiy! She is in a win-win situation. So hard on mom, tho. Whatever happens, it will be the right thing.
prrrt 'n meow,
What a generous thing to do. Little Riza will be adored by a furmily that knows what lifelong dedication to a fur really is! It will be like an open adoption...MOL...you can get updates and photos through your v-e-t! Such a happy ending/beginning, and you guys made it happen!
Sometimes the most loving thing is also the hardest. but like Ollie said Rizza will win either way. We will purr for her and you too. luv Anna
Little Riza will have a win-win. We know if the vets daughters takes her your heart will be broken, yet very happy that she'll have a great home and you can still keep in touch. We also know how much you want and love her too. It takes a lot of love to offer her to the daughter. Remember Good Things are always remembered and rewarded. What a big heart you and your family have.
Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda
Riza is a little angel, here to bring joy!! Either home will be blessed to have her.
Sweet little Riza can't lose. She will have lots of love no matter what happens. What a lucky little kitty.
That is a dilemma. But I would not give her up if you really want to keep her, perhaps the other lady will give another homeless furbaby a loving home. That would be two homeless babies in furever homes instead of one. Most of the time if one stays here long enough to get named they never leave, go with your heart. Don't be hasty, always wishing you would have kept her would be hard to deal with. We are all with you in whatever you decide.Love ya'll bunches, Normy
P.S. I am honored you used my name suggestion.
Riza is such a lucky kitty. It will be difficult if your pawrents decide to let her go. But it will be much easier knowing that she's going to a loving home.
It's so hard to give away something so special, I hope all of the pieces fall in place as they are meant to be....Either way, what a lucky little kitty, no matter who she ends up with!
