The kitty that showed up at our back door a few weeks ago went home with her new parents this morning. I know she is going to a good home, but it is still bittersweet. Even though I was resisting it, I had become attached to her.
We knew she needed to be fixed whether or not she stayed with us, so she was spayed Friday morning. She also had her shots and was checked for worms. The vet bill was over $200, but it was worth it to know she is healthy and won’t be reproducing.
Although our prospects of finding her an adoptive family seemed pretty slim, one of Honey’s coworkers managed to connect us with a lady who was looking for an indoor cat. A few phone calls later, Lily had a new home.
As she purred loudly this morning, I planted a big kiss on the top of her head and told her I hope she has a good life.
Bye, Lily. I love you.
