Kitty Update!

Thank you to all the bloggers who helped me spread the word about this sweet kitty needing a new home.  I'm happy to report she will be flying to Florida on Saturday to live with her new family.  She is one lucky kitty because she gets to live in the home of a quilter and two other kitty cats!

This post is short as it has been an emotionally exhausting day.  We took my son to his college today.  I'm a sad mom.  I just wanted to hurry and get word out about kitty because just about a half hour ago another sweet quilter emailed to say she would like to help with kitty.  I'm truly thankful for friends in blogland!

A happy ending!!
I had one of those days on Saturday, it's tough those first few days when they leave. I thought it would be easy seeing this is my second time, but that's not how it turned out.
Better now though.

So glad to hear the kitty was saved! I'm taking my youngest to college on Friday, move in is Saturday. She's number 3, but she's the most attached to me so it's going to be different. In addition, I'm dropping this one off myself as my husband can't go with. Should be interesting!

Carol said...

The kitty is so cute, I'm happy she found a new home. I think she will like having other kitties to live with. So sorry you are sad about your son going to college. I'm sure he will call you often.

I'm sorry about your son going away to school. I've had the empty nest and it isn't any fun. <> I'm not going to say it gets easier. When my daughter left, I came home from the airport and put on the Bee Gees CD and cleaned the entire house. I figured the disco music would cover up my crying, I really could use the reminder of "Stayin' Alive," and as miserable as I was, at least I would have a clean house to enjoy when I felt better. When we went to visit her the first time and we were in the gate waiting for our flight home to Alaska, I looked at my husband and told him: "Now you know how much I love you, because if it was any less, I wouldn't go back with you." Hang in there. I'll say a prayer for you!

Glad about kitty! I just want to say, I've gone through the kids going off to school and even, after school, moving to another state. It gets better. I know you don't believe it now but it does get better. They have to go...it's part of life. I always thought...at least I still have my Bernina....

It sounds like an emotionally exhausting day, Mary. Don't you hate to see them grow up? It's a new chapter in your life.

That is one lucky kitty!

Mary said...

Glad to hear that your adorable kitty has a new home.

Glad kitty found a good home! I'm glad I have a few years before I have to worry about my kids going to college, my oldest started high school this year and my youngest starts high school next year.

Gerri said...

What a happy ending for the kitty. And to have instant siblings to boot! Mar, I hope your sad heart heals soon.

Glad kitty has been adopted.
I feel your pain about your son leaving for college. As each child left home it was heartbreaking to me. Funny thing is, we seem to have a revolving door. Our youngest two move out and then when they run out of funds, or can't find housing for another year they move back again. (Of course, they are going to school 10 miles away.) We've had one home for a month now (we had them both last spring), he moves out again in a couple of weeks. Each time they leave I think, "This will be it. They won't be back." So far, I've been wrong. : )

I understand your feeling of bringing your son to college. We need to give them wings as hard as it is sometimes. Hang in there - it will get easier.

Ah so happy to hear kitty found a new home~ and an adventure too! :-) We took our DS last week. House sure is quieter. ;-)

Rita said...

I feel your pain Mary. We drop our son off Tuesday. It's bittersweet...I'm sad for me but excited for him. I'm gonna miss him so much. Sending you hugs :-)

Leeanne said...

Yippie, happy cat & a cute one!

Mary C said...

Probably it's more difficult taking the last kid to college than the first.

Barb said...

hooray for the cute kitty!
It's hard the first few weeks - I know you'll miss him!
I take my daughter tomorrow :(

Me and My Stitches said...

So glad you found a good home for kitty. Isn't it funny...we raise our kids to be prepared for the future, but we never are quite ready for it!

Cheryl said...

Glad Kitty was adopted. I am allergic to them too. Sad, because they are so cute.

Jan said...

Such a cutie! How wonderful of you to save her, and care enough to find a good home.

Loris said...

Good work finding the perfect home for such an adorable kitty! and in the midst of such a year of challenges. It can be so tough to say good bye. You have done such a wonderful job helping your son become such a strong talented young man. I'll be praying you find comfort to cheer you.

Bari Jo said...

so glad that kitty has a home... oh friend... I know the ache of the heart when they head off to college... I hope the next visit home comes quickly for your mother's heart!

Carrie P. said...

sorry to hear you are sad. it will be alright.
so glad to hear you found a home for your kitty.

Kim said...

We teach our kids how to fly and then cry over the mixed blessing of it. I won't say it's easy, but you and hubby will adjust as you discover the joys of an empty nest and being a "single couple" once again...believe it or not, there is joy in that, lol. And not to worry, the kids always come home again! Great news about Little Kitty. :-D

Little Lady Patchwork said...

Happy to hear about Kitty!....HUGS to you my dear sweet friend :0)

Bless your heart -- what an emotional time for you!! Glad the kitty's going to a good home --one less worry. Sending {{{hugs}}} to the mom who's sent off her baby! :)

Debi said...

I can remember when my "baby" left for college following her big sister, although they went to separate colleges. I cried all the way home.

Libby said...

Lots of leftovers are just part of the learning curve of the empty nester. Still it is such a joy to watch our kids go out and make their way in the world, a little monotony at the dinner table is but a small price to pay *s*

Jo said...

I am so glad your kitty found a home.
