yeah I have to say, getting that email made all that trouble worth it. It makes me feel like I accomplished something giving that cat and her babies a good start at life. I cannot WAIT to get settled again and be able to do it all over again. I'll keep the blog going and everything. That really seemed to be a big deal to the rescue group, and especially to adoption applicants.
here's the email her new mom sent
|I was going to try to message you through your website again this weekend-one of the ladies from the rescue said you had emailed me back, but I hadn't gotten anything. I thought maybe I'd typed my email address wrong.
We looked over the blog first thing after we got her-it was neat to watch the videos you'd posted, too.
We had heard the noisy breathing and purring, but hadn't noticed the structural thing with her nose until we read it in your blog. The loud breathing is pretty prounounced when she is meowing (like in the crate all the way home)
She is such a great cat-every day my husband will lay on the couch with her, and she will just cuddle, it's like she just wants to soak up the love. Sometimes, she will hide her head under his hand, or in his arm-almost like she's playing peek-a-boo. Everytime she does that I think about what you posted about when she was going into labor. She's getting much more comfortable now, and has started playing a lot more. The only problem we are having is that she wants to scratch on the carpet and the cloth furniture. We got 3 different types of scratching posts, but she still wants the carpet. Did you ever notice that she flex her fingers a lot? I saw she was doing that in one of the videos you'd posted-where she's nursing the babies, and thought it was probably just a physical response to the nursing, but she does it frequently. I've never seen our other cat do that before, but maybe that's a normal cat behavior, and our other one is odd?
I wondered about her age-a couple different places I had seen her listed as 1 year, but after we got home and I was looking over her paperwork it shows 2 yrs.
I attached a few pictures for you to enjoy.
Thanks for taking such great care of her, we are very happy to have her in our lives!
