Update for Chickadee

Update for Chickadee

Dear Supporters of Chickadee,

I am literally jumping for joy.

And, yeah, a little sad, too.

I was on the Tabby’s Place Loop and happened to be scrolling through the emails when I spotted one about Chickadee that caught my attention. It felt like breaking news–and as I discovered later–this event had literally just happened!

Our own sweet dear girl was ADOPTED on Saturday, March 17 (oh, yeah, that’s St. Patrick’s Day), by a lady who has a very special place in her heart for cats with CH. It seems that our sweet Chickie was on a short list that also included both Ike and MJ, but in the end, she was the lucky girl who was chosen. The other wonderful news is that Chickadee will be living with one other kitty–and now I can spend the rest of my life wondering what mischief she’ll be getting into . . .ha, ha.

Now, if you’ve been reading my updates faithfully, you know it has taken me months to reach a gentle understanding with Chickadee. And just this month, I felt we had a meeting of the minds, so to speak. So it is bittersweet, indeed, to know that she will no longer be there in the Community Room–sitting on top of the long table when I first walk in the door, or hiding behind Angela’s computer, or perched on top of the desk adjacent to Angela’s–all stretched out and cozy. She will no longer come up to nuzzle me and give me a gentle peck on the cheek. And I have to admit I’ll miss that weird combination of sounds that she makes when you move into Chickadee’s zone–the chirping, growling, purring medley that put me off at first, but which I grew to love.

I can only say I’m so grateful I saw her on Friday, the day before she was adopted, and that I had the chance to hang out with her for awhile and do the usual things. I’ll have that memory forever.

But don’t get me wrong, as wonderful a place as Tabby’s Place is, I wish that every one of the kitties who live here will have their own home–their own forever home. Every time a kitty is adopted, I feel like jumping for joy that someone is willing to extend themselves and take a little loving soul into their heart.

Of course, the lady who adopted Chickadee probably knows, as well as we all do, that her love will be repaid back in a thousand ways. As happy as she will make Chickadee, our girl will make her even happier.

I wish Chickadee only the best.

My tears are tears of happiness.

Thanks, as always, for your support for Chickadee. Your generosity made her life so much better!

Isn’t it great that we have such a lovely ending to her story?
