Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is of LC when she was a kitten...
I am presenting it not for this date in the past as I usually do with flashbacks, but because I was in Petsmart a few days ago and saw her twin.  Up for adoption.  An adult cat wanting a home...

And then I saw her kitten twin in the next cage playing wildly with a rattle ball.  Wanting a home.  I wanted to take them both home.

I didn't.  When I adopted Marley, he brought peace between Ayla and Iza.  I am reluctant to take the chance of disturbing the peace.  And I know how many cats I can properly take care of.  I know what my litterbox maintenance abilities are, etc...

I admire those who can care for more, but I think my limit is 3.  I had more cats once and struggled with them, finally having to find good homes for half of them.  And that was hard to do, letting a few go elsewhere to care better for the others.

But it sure was hard to walk away from both of those sweet black/white ones at Petsmart.  They both pulled at my heart...

So I guess I post today thinking of both those cats.  The adult who put her paw on the glass looking at me.  The kitten playing with her one toy...  I could imagine the adult asking "Are you the one who will take me away to a forever home".  And the kitten saying "See how playful I am, can I be in your home"?

It was SO hard to leave the store...
