Saffron

One of the hardest parts of fostering sometimes is letting a kitten go to a new home. Be it special needs or a special animal or special circumstances, some animals just imbed themselves a little further into a foster family's heart.

Saffron was one of those kittens. She had personality and charm. And thumbs. :) And she was here for a while.....


But, last weekend mom got an email from the rescue that someone was interested in Saff. Now, mom was on her way out of town for the weekend, but she sent the woman an email. They emailed back and forth....pictures and video. And then on Friday - Saffron went home.

She will have two older cat in her new home. An older kitty at 11 years old and one closer to her age at 11 months old. Her new mom and dad drove about an hour to get here to meet her. She was her normal grumpy self being somewhere not here. But after her new mom held her for a few minutes, she gave Saff to her new dad and she actually relaxed a little. While it has been a weirdly quiet weekend here without the booger running around and snoozing on top of everyone, we couldn't have hoped for a better home for her. Her new mom laughed and asked why Saffron hadn't been adopted before....mom said that despite her best intentions, Saffron had only gone up on Petfinder about 3 weeks ago.

And it seems it was fate. See this couple had a 2 year old cat that died suddenly. They worried and worried but after some time knew they were ready for another kitty and knew their youngest needed a friend. So about 3 weeks ago they started looking on Petfinder. And tada!!!

So....congrats to Saffron and her new family!!!

  6. That does sound like the perfect home for Saffron--a kitty near her own age to play with, another to pal around with, and experienced and loving cat parents.

  20. Sending you love and (((hugs)))) because this had to be so hard for you. Saffron is such a gorgeous girl. You are right though, it was probably meant to be and they drove so far to get their new baby. They sound like incredible people, just like you!
