Wings As Eagles: Goodbye, my little one

Goodbye, my little one

I didn't know if I could do it, but I did and it just about broke my heart to do - give away Tibbles. At one time, I thought it would be neat to have a batch of Siamese kittens a couple of times a year and then sell the kittens. Nope, I just can't do that. It's been a while since I've had to give away a kitten and it's just too hard.

Becky called Thursday and I was excited that I had found someone who wanted a kitten to keep indoors. I put Tibbles in a box in the car and started out the driveway to meet her at Ensign since she didn't want to travel on our muddy, slippery dirt roads. The box was a silly idea since he immediately crawled out. Then it suddenly dawned on me - Skittles. Put him on my shoulder and he was perfectly happy for the 5-10 minute drive.

Poor Skittles...I drove in the driveway and there she was sitting on top of the couch, looking out the picture window waiting for me to come home. I knew I was in for a long couple of days and nights of meowing. And yes, last night she ran all over the house screaming and wondered around on the bed, looking under the blankets for Tibbles. But by tomorrow she should be over it, but it will take a few days of adjusting for me.

It was sad to go to bed last night and no little black kitten sleeping right beside me or wake up in the night to little paws bouncing on the bed, playing with my feet or to get up this morning and discover no Tibbles looking and yawning at me before pouncing off the bed. But such is life and hopefully in another few months we will have a Siamese kitten to keep!

sleepy little kitty

isn't he just sooo cute?!?!

I looked down from where I was
working on my computer and found this!
He's just about as big as Skittles!

Thursday night he crawled up into my lap and
I began to think, "I really can't give him away!"

"Where are we going?"

"Looks fun outside; I wonder what I could play with?"

"I better hang on; she's a crazy driver in all this mud!"

"I better watch to see where we are going!"

"I think I'll just take a nap."


  1. Awww!! :( Such a cute kitty! I think the most dangerous part isn't that you have a cat sitting on your shoulder while you drive, but the fact that you're taking pictures of it at the same time!!!! ;)


  2. Yes, I would agree with you, Morgan!!! :) It was a bit of a challenge clicking the camera button while trying to drive in the mud and stay out of the ditch! :)

  3. I'm so sorry you are having to give your precious little kitten away. But it must give you some consolation that you have found him a wonderful home where he will be loved. I know you will miss him.


I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
