Bug went home this afternoon. A friend of a friend expressed an interest in a friendly people loving kitty. They have no idea what they are getting. I am a little sad in that she won't be here anymore, but happy that she has a home of her own where she can be more the center of attention. They have one other cat that is 3 yrs old and 4 kids: 10, 12, 15, & 17 (I think). Jane promised to keep me updated - I told her that was a condition of adoption.... :)
I am not sure it has entirely hit me that she is no longer in the house. I have known all along that I couldn't keep her - she deserves to be more than the last kitten in the line of what goes on around here. I certainly have enough love for another cat, but there is only so much space and so much time in the day. But she was a joy to raise and I am thankful everyday that a neighbor heard her crying under the stairs and we managed to pull her out, help her grow up and find her a home.
