Bittersweet Happy News

Hi Pals,

Happy news to report.   We are so happy because @Siofrathecat will have a new home.  She'll be going to live with @CuteKittyWillie's mom.   Willie crossed dat Rainbow Bridge a month or so ago after a very long illness.   We are all so happy because Siofra will go to a home where she will get good care and lots of loving.

M talked with @Siofra's mom via email a couple of times today.   She is happy her baby will go to a good home.  She was worried about having to put her in a shelter.  This has relieved her mind so much.   But she told M it's "bittersweet" happy.   Of course she is very sad dat she has to lose her baby.   We had leaky eyes here too just thinking about dat goodbye.   But maybe her new mom will let the original mom see her now and den if they not live a long ways from each other, or keep in touch with email and pictures too.  

Never underestimate the power of the anipal community in blogs or on Twitter.   CuteWillie's mom just happened to see a tweet that was RTd by @Petiethecat.   It just goes to show dat if something is RTd enough, someone is bound to take an interest in it.   We are happy for Willie's mom too cuz now she'll have a kitty to care for again. 

Thanks to all my blogging pals that helped on this and thanks to all my Twitter pals who helped broadcast the plea for help.   You guys all ROCK!!   And thanks to CuteWillie's mom for coming to the rescue.   We on Twitter were so happy when we found out Willie's mom would adopt her and dat Siofra's mom felt she'd be going to a good home.  

M told Siofra's mom to keep in touch with all of us because we loves her too and wish she and her family the best.  She has a lot to deal with right now and has leaky eyes too.   We need to give her lots of support and love.  She's happy, but sad at the same time - bittersweet happy.  

Bye for now

Mario

I told Siofra's mama that her family is welcome to visit anytime. Of course we'll keep in touch and let her know how Siofra's doing, as well as send her photos. Willie is glad we won't be so lonely anymore. :)

We are very glad this worked out for everyone. Willie's mom won't be lonely and Siofra will have a new home so her first family won't have to worry about her.

That is so exciting that Siofra found a forever home. We know that M is sad but at least it is better for Siofra to have a real home rather than the shelter. That Twitter stuff really works. Mom need to do some more on there. She has trouble figuring out how to find the pet tweets.

Bittersweet is a good title to it. I can't imagine not being with my mom. Both of us would lose several lives.

We're so glad that this worked out for everyone. It's so sad to have to give her kitty up, but she did the right thing and you helped her find a loving home {{hugs}}.

Oh, Mario, I sit here all choked up and "eyes leaking" as I read this. I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes, attributed to Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." I'm so happy that Siofra the Cat will have a loving new home, and that CuteWillie'sMom will have a loving friend. And we won't forget Siofra's first family. Our prayers and hopes go with them. *hugs n snugs!*

Oskar said...

Bittersweet is right. We will be praying for all of them.

We are so so glad that Siofra has a home and is safe.

We were recommended to your teeth story today by a lot of furriends. The vet believes my Darcy may have Stomatitis. Your story about your teeth has been a comfort to me because hopefully there will be an end in site for her.

Bittersweet is so right !! My mom can't imagine herself without me....That's a bit too much for her. But we do understand circumstance, and respect for her decision. Just personal thing, we just can't !!!
But we do happy with Siofra : )
Purrs for all

How wonderful Siofra has found a new home. We lost our beloved Abby a little over a month ago, so I know the emptiness that a pet's passing after an illess leaves. I'm sure Siofra will be a welcome new member of the household and live a long and happy life.

It is bittersweet, but it is always good to hear a kitty found a home. Siofra will be happy, safe, and loved a lot.

I am glad Siofra had a nice warm and loving home until she found her forever home. She is so cute!

Aksharaa said...

Oh Mario, We are so glad Siofra is going to a loving home that wants her. We can understand how bad her mum must be feeling because she has to give her away. But it is wonderful to know that she will be safe and taken care of.
Please pass on our love n hugs to her n Siofra n also to everyone in Siofra's new family.
