Guess What?

I went out with a friend yesterday to find a new kitty. She knew all the best places because she just helped her daughter get her first "on her own" kitty. Then having a bad case of kitty envy she got a new kitty for herself. So she knew just what to do. Bonnie is the sweetest friend.
First we went to Mounds Pet Center and all they had were older cats and most were spoken for. Then we went to the Feral Cat Society and they just had two females and I wanted a male kitten.
Well at the first place I saw the adorable kitty carrier and Max hated the one I had so I thought this soft side one would be great. Maybe the kitty would like to ride in this.

Yes I got the bag first. That way I knew I would get a new kitty. Isn't it adorable?

The last place we went way the Dane County Humane Society. It is a brand new facility and it is a wonderful place.  Well the first kitty was young and very frighten. She just got there and wouldn't be ready for a home until 4/4. Remember I wanted a male and a kitten. Well they didn't have any. So I asked to look at one more kitty.  They had named her Gueniviere and when she came in the room she just melted on my lap. Then she reached up an patted my chin. Well I was done in. We have renamed her Lucy.

They think she is about 2 but when I take her to the vet they will have a better idea. She is so sweet and pretty.
Lucy is 7 pounds and just seems like a little feather. At the shelter they spayed her, put a chip in her so if she gets lost. She was also given her shots and several test.
We had a 45 min ride in the car and she was so good. She she never made a sound.
Lucy has been checking out her new house and seems to like it very much. She has been at my side every since she got here. The reason I wanted a kitten is that I wanted to train them to like to ride in the car and not be afraid of the vacuum. Lucy has past both test. She is very laid back.

I will always miss my Max but it feels so good to be able to give another sweet little furry friend a good home.

Thanks for stopping,

Oh my goodness, she is adorable! It almost makes me want another one, once Pumpkin goes! As for the bag....I don't know how big it is, but it's cute enough to use as a bag for yourself, LOL!!! Give her a cuddle for me & Cassidy!

Awww, it was Lucy's very lucky day. She has found a wonderful home where she will be loved and pampered, Max would be happy that you continue to share all that love with another furry friend. She is absolutely gorgeous Linda and she probably knows you could use a furry friend that will wiggle her way to your heart, I think she already has. I am so pleased for you, hugz

I am so glad you have a new furry friend! and she is beautiful! What a sweet baby she looks to be :) One of my cats looks quite similar to Llucy - we call her Sasha and she is very laid back too. I am very happy for you Sweetie!

Susan said...

Awww, Linda! What a sweetie! Yep, you had that natural connection with Lucy. Once she put her paw up to your chin the deal was sealed! Isn't it funny how things work out? You had your mind set on something and then just like that it can change! Little Lucy is very lucky to be in a home where she will have a lot of love, just as your Max did. ;)

The bag is very cute. I had one for my Katie cat and actually brought her on a flight with me once in it. She actually liked to be in it and if I left it on the floor open she would crawl in and take a nap. Enjoy your new fur baby!


Kate said...

Awwwww She is so Adorable. While I know you can never replace Max, I am so happy that you found Lucy to start some new fond memories with. Definitely enjoy the weekend.
