For those of you who aren't aware, last Summer hubby and I helped to rescue two adorable little black kittens who were apart of a litter born to a feral Mom "Cleopatra" in our neighbourhood.

After fostering them for a few months, they were then moved onto another foster home where we enjoyed the wonderful updates provided to us by their new "Mommy". Sadly we learned this past October that Calvin had died very suddenly at 6 months of age. Just the other day however, I received the following email from the remaining brother's foster Mom that read as follows:

Dear Lisa Marie,

I am happy to tell you that Clarence went to his "forever home"
today, adopted by a wonderful young couple, both bright, thoughtful
and gentle people with a long history of cat care. They had two
cats, one of whom died recently, so they wanted a new companion for
the remaining cat, whose name is Roosevelt.

After Calvin's untimely death in late October, Clarence "blossomed"
and indeed seemed to morph into a mirror image of Calvin: he is now
a very confident, affectionate, playful little boy and, of course,
slender, sleek and handsome. I'm sure he will thrive in his new home.

This was undoubtedly one of the BEST Christmas gifts we could have been given. Life will always have it's triumphs and tragedies, and we're saddened that Calvin's life was short; but both boys were loved and nurtured and brought to safety when it mattered the most. Good luck Clarence..........we will love you always.

  2. Awwww... this made me tear up. So sad and happy.

  3. Hi,
    I found your blog while lurking about on the web. My husband and I are the ones who adopted Clarence! Happy to report that he has grown into such a wise, chill but sometimes a bit skiddish cat. He is so handsome!
