Welcome back for another edition of Caturday, where we catch up on the week's latest cat news, and get to meet some of your amazing kitties!
Today is a very special Caturday, because... it's my birthday!!
I don't have enough paws to count anymore...
Elsewhere, United Bamboo auctioned off their tiny cat calendar fashions, Lynlee created exquisite fondant feline cupcake toppers for Halloween, Simon's Cat returned with a creepy crawly new cat-venture, and you still have time to enter to win a copy of Grumpy Cat's hilarious new book!
Also, does your cat(s) want to be a part of Charlie's 3rd Annual (!!!) Big Halloween Round-Up? Email me a pic of your kitty in costume by Wed. 10/30 for a chance to be included!
This week's featured feline is a handsome boy, who was fated to find the purrfect forever family!
Quint was born in an abandoned house in the San Fernando Valley in California sometime in April of 2008. I don't know exactly when, of course, but the vet told me, when I took him in for his first check-up and vaccinations, that he was about fourteen weeks old. So, his early kitten-hood was spent in the wilds of suburbia.
Resourceful, even as a kitten, he found a loving human to feed and pet him at the house next door. Leticia, the girl who lived in that house, very much wanted him to come and live with her, but there just wasn't room at her house for another cat, so she decided to find someone who would provide a loving home for him.
I think dreams and thoughts and desires have more power than we imagine them to have. Sometimes, if we want something very much, and that something might be good for us to have, then what appears to be magic can cause things to happen that might not otherwise occur.
I love this book!
Call it fate, if you like, but an unlikely series of events brought this little homeless kitten to my wife and I, and all of our lives are better because of it.
Darkness and Light
