As you might know we have had a foster cat named Bella living with us for a while. Almost 6 months to be precise, she came to us from the local animal protection association in August last year.
And now she has left.
They called this weekend and told me a woman was interested in adopting her and yesterday evening that woman came to our apartment to pick Bella up and take her to her new home. For a while we talked about keeping her, but truth be told I think Bella is better off somewhere else. This lady apparently lives in a house out on the countryside, has no other pets and is retired so she’s home all day. Bella would love that! She could get all the attention she wants, be allowed to go outside and no annoying dog ;)
I’m definitely going to miss her though.
Every morning for these past months she would come up in our bed when the alarm goes off and curl up against me and purr (like she’s trying to stop me from getting up :P ) and this morning… nothing. No cat, no cuddle, no purr. Just the dog snoring in his basket.
He for one is not sad to see her go – for some reason she really liked his basket and he’s too much of a wimp to chase her away when she was sleeping in it. Lots of times the teeny tiny cat would be sleeping in the big dog bed and the dog would be sleeping on the floor next to it. Silly creatures ;)
I hope everything turns out well for her. And if it doesn’t, she’s welcome back to us :)
