Lynne, Snowball is beautiful! And I could see the smile on your face as you wrote about all her funny quirks and playfulness that you're learning about. What a wonderful time this is for you and her. And such a reward for all that you went through with Boo Boo, from the loving and tenacious care to the pain in letting him go. I think Boo Boo is enjoying himself immensely, watching the both of you from the Rainbow Bridge. He's probably whispering into Snowball's ears funny little things to do to make you laugh.

What a difference a day can make though. This little dickens kept us up all night. She would take turns on each side of the bed, blatting. We'd say, come up Snowy, she would, purr like a freight train, cuddle up and sleep for 20 minutes, jump down and start the whole routine again. This morning she was racing around the house like a lunatic, playing hide and seek. She was kind of naughty yesterday, stalking Lennie, ate his food, layed in his litter box. Did nothing in his litter box, just lay in it. So we changed Lennies food. This morning she ate her own stuff and is using her own litterbox and I think she understands that Lennie wants nothing to do with her. She'll still walk by him and hiss just to bug him. He doesn't care. She reminds me a bit of BooBoo, very gentle and loving but she has a more playful streak in her. Of course poor Boo was in no condition to be playful. She certainly has helped ease the pain of losing him, probably because she is pretty high maintenance. We need to comb her at least once a day and clean her eyes twice a day because they do tear a lot. I swear she would be show material if those eyes weren't so much work. I'm not going to do anything extreme with them, just bathe them with warm water a couple times a day so they don't get crusty. Yep we love her and you know, if dear Boo hadn't been with us I probably would never have been made so aware of all the devastating illnesses and terrible conditions so many of these cats live with. A real eye opener. Lynne ----- Original Message ----- From: wendy To: email@example.com Sent: Sunday, March 23, 2008 10:40 AM Subject: Re: ournewbaby Lynne, Bless you for taking in this kitty. It brought tears to my eyes to read your post, because I know how very lucky she is to have the new family she's just inherited. She probably doesn't know it yet, but it won't take her long. What a wonderful thing that Boo Boo is part of the reason that this beautiful cat now has a forever home. Please keep us posted on how she does. :) Wendy "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world - indeed it is the only thing that ever has!" ~~~ Margaret Meade ~~~ ----- Original Message ---- From: Lynne <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Saturday, March 22, 2008 11:14:25 AM Subject: ournewbaby We met the foster mom of the cat we adopted at the vets this morning and now have our new little girl home. She was a rescued cat from this horrible shop owner in town. I was expecting to meet a kind of pathetic looking little kitty but to our surprise, she's a 9 pound gorgeous white persian with amber colored eyes. She's absolutely beautiful but for the moment prefers to be upstairs on her own. We're not forcing ourselves on her but the foster mom s ays she is very affectionate and loves attention. She inspected every inch of the house and will come down when she wants to. We are just so happy to finally have her here. She has never had a real home, just a pet store and the foster mom.
