Over time she did seem to do a little better and even would get a little close to Everett but only when he was with Dustin. For some reason, maybe because I always was with the baby and was unable to show her a lot of attention, she seemed to think me the bad guy. Overall though she stayed away and if the baby came near she was gone.
|This was the closest she ever got.|
Enter our friends Scott and Sylvia. Scott and Sylvia are already the proud and loving cat parents to two boy kitties, Shiitake and Monty. They adore their "boys" and we knew that they would be equally wonderful to our Pippa. After much consideration on their part they kindly said they would take Pippa and see how she would do. Knowing how Pippa was at accepting change, which wasn't very well, we were all apprehensive at how the transition would go. Thankfully, she did wonderfully. She loves her new family and has become best pals with Monty.
We definitely miss her but it is a relief to know that she is in a place where she is so happy. She was pretty miserable here with us and having her live a life in a laundry basket and trying to avoid little children would have made her even more unhappy. We couldn't have asked for better parents for her, we know she is very loved and well taken care of in her new home. Plus, we can stop in and visit and are often given updates at how she is doing. Definitely an open adoption at its best!
