BIG NEWS!!!!

Hi All,

I have some wonderful news to share with you...I'm expecting a new addition to our family.  This is Ash, he is one of the Winnie's Wish kitties and he needed a home.  I have a little extra room at my house since Molly went to the Bridge and I thought Ash might like to come and live with my gang.  Molly came from very humble beginnings and I think she would approve of Ash who had a similar start in life

Ash is scheduled for neutering on October 20th and after he has had a little time to recover he will make the 1376 km journey (855 miles) to my house.  Please stay tuned to my blog and Chrystal's blog Daily Dose of Dogs and Cats to follow Ash's adventure to becoming one of Cat's Cats!

There are more lovely kitties at Chrystal's private shelter that need homes.  Perhaps you don't have the time or inclination for a long road trip just to collect a cat (I'm lucky that my Robert is always up for an escapade).  No problem! lots of generous folks from the CB have offered to help out with transporting the kitties, so final destination is not an issue.  I know sometimes it is overwhelming to think of the big picture "oh my gosh there are so many cats out there that need homes, I couldn't possible make a difference",  but you can!  I  just tried to focus on helping one cat and one friend and it was easy that way :-)

This is simply wonderful news ~ for Ash, for you, and for Chrystal. I couldn't be happier. And little Ash looks so like our Alfie, that I love him already! Do keep us posted on progress.

I just know in my heart that Molly would have wanted you to help another kitten. You are honouring her by doing so.

This is such good news and we know he will have a wonderful loving home with you (plus the added bonus of getting to read about him!) We are so super excited for you both!

Katnip Lounge said...

Hurrah! We love it when everybody wins...especially a kitty! Molly is thrilled, we're sure. She would want you to love another kitty, cuz love just multiplies and gets bigger.

Our new boy is settling in wonderfully, and we hope Ash does the same for you. Will you keep his name?

Kat's Kats said...

Yay!! If we weren't at our limit we would be adopting another cat as well. My son gets to pick our next kitty. I know that Ash will adore living at your house!!

pbgmomof5 said...

This is soooooooooooooooooooo wonderful. Ash is quite the handsome man cat. And how exciting that you are the first to adopt one of the Winnie's Wish kitties. May your lives together be long and happy.

P.S. Will Ash has dual citizenship, eh?

That's great news! Ash his sure a handsome mancat and I'm sure he will fit in just fine. What a long trip he has ahead of him--but you are doing a wonderful thing in adopting him!

Admiral Hestorb said...

Oh Ash is a beauty..er..handsome that is and I know he will settle down and love his new forever family as much as they will and already do, love him. It was meant to be. ♥

Simba said...

Ash is a very attractive kitten, and we are sure will have a wonderful home with you. What an adventure to travel all that distance to pick him up.

Miss Kitty said...

Oh dear Catrina,

Your such an angel. Dad is almost in tears since he wish he could adopt all the cats that are in need of a home. It always breaks his heart seeing a cat in need, so we applaud your actions, especially since Ash is coming from so far away.

We know Ash will love his new home.

Best wishes and purrs
Miss kitty and Egmont

Sparkle said...

I am so excited that you are giving Ash a home! I look forward to reading about all his adventures!

CCL Wendy said...

Oh, what wonderful news! What a big heart you have to open it to this little guy who lives so far away. It certainly can't be an easy arrangement. But then the best things in life are never easy.

I'm sure Molly will be happy at the Bridge to know that this is, in fact, her legacy.

Looking forward to seeing all the Ash posts in the future.

Oskar said...

Oh my dog, I am so excited that little Ash is going to come and live with you. Molly will be proud to watch over him, I just know it!

Oskar

That's fabulous news. We are big fans of Chrystal's blog, Daily Dose of Dogs and Cats, but there is sadly a big ocean that separates us, so we are just delighted to hear that Winnie's Wish already has one happy ending! Ash is so handsome!
