A sad yet happy day...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Sophie's kittens are now 9 weeks old and today the last two Amelia and Harley are going to their new home. It is a nice couple with 2 kids 11 and 8 and they are all so exited to get their new kittens. They lost their 18 year old cat 2 weeks ago and are ready to welcome their home to two new kittens.
I'm leaving in a few minutes to go meet the family to give them the kittens. It is a really sad moment because I will miss them a lot! I didn't realize how attached I would become. Here they are in the crate ready to leave.

(((((((((HUGS))))))))) I can only imagine how sad it will be for you but can also see how HAPPY this family will be! our dog passed away 2 weeks ago today and we are waiting to get a new puppy (should have her by the 25th) and we can't wait! so I know these kitties will be so loved and spoiled by their new owners.

I know what you are feeling. I raised enough rex litters Its always sad when they leave (and I kept mine for 4 months) but knowing they will be loved and spoiled helps ease the sadness.

Hopefully the people will be willing to keep in touch with you with a few pictures of them growing up

awww... Im sorry They look so cute. *hugs8, Im sure they will LOVE their new home! - When ever I give away kittens ( used to rescue them a lot ) I told them that if they wanted to give them back, they could. Some times they get them home and it does not work out, so I like to leave my home as the option!!!

Thanks everyone! In person this was a very nice lady! Harley hissed at her when he was first pulled out of the carrier. I guess he was scared of the car ride and strange person mixed together. I have no doubt though that he will warm up once she gets them home. I'm glad they were kept together. I'm going to do the same with my other litter that there are 5 of and adopt them in pairs then i'm keeping one.

I was lucky with Ling's brothers and sisters. Wound up that one family took the 2 boys (took one, then called a few days later cause he was crying for his brother - so they came back to get him).

The two sisters went to one family cause they couldn't make up their minds on picking one, so took both of them

It is hard giving up Kittens. I have always wondered about Cocos Girl. My Sister gt her Son so I still get to see him. The one I kept died at age 5 last Dec.

Aww, they're so cute! I'm glad they found a nice home though. I know I'm going to be sad when our kittens, who are only about two weeks old, are older and ready to leave.

They're adorable and I'm so glad that they are going to be able to stay together.

Thats the part I am dreading the most.. Makes me sad already, and my cat hasn't even had her kittens yet, I will just try and find the best homes possible and know that they make their family as happy as they are going to make mine.. HUGS... Sounds like you found a amazing home for those two beauties,.

Must be a bit like sending kids off to college. Now, if a good 'college' would take little Christy...
