Mia is gone

By admin on April 13th, 2010. 2 Comments.

Mia was adopted this Sunday. I was extremely sad and cried all day. Mostly, I miss her. But also, I did not expect her to be adopted on Sunday so I didn’t say a proper ‘Good Bye’. I was so sure that she was going to come back to us, I didn’t kiss her or hold her tight and I didn’t get to tell her all I wanted to tell her:

We hope your new family treats you well

We hope you have company and never feel alone

We hope you will be loved

We hope you have a long and healthy life

We hope you think of us with love, the way we will think of you

We hope you never felt you were on borrowed time

We love you very much and we are honored to have had you in our lives

Thank you for teaching us unconditional love and patience

We will miss you enormously…especially at feeding time when you will not climb up my leg and terrorize me anymore…and when I make the bed and you won’t jump in under the covers…

Thank you for all the happy moments and all the smiles you gave us

Thank you for being such a good friend to all the other foster babies

We hope we will hear about you again

Here are the last pictures I took of her:

Before Mia left, I told the refuge that she has a bad tooth which should come out to avoid other health issues. I was told Mia’s new guardians were made aware of this and they will make sure it gets taken care of. I gave the volunteer the address to the website so that the new guardians may see Mia’s history and stay in touch. We’ll see :)

Moka was also supposed to go to the adoption day last Sunday. I couldn’t catch him to put him in the carrier. He was very afraid of the volunteer who came to pick him up so he hid in his room, under the bed.

Albert got his second round of shots yesterday and he has been acting a little weird. Last night he was very tired and sleepy but couldn’t get comfortable. I stayed up with him until 1am when I was sure he was comfortable. This morning he did not eat his meal. I managed to feed him a treat and now he is sitting in the sun in the back yard. I am keeping a close eye on him while becoming more and more convinced that these shots are very bad for little kittens.
