I got a text yesterday from Bug's mom and I wanted to share. As a little background, when she adopted Bug I told her there was no official adoption fee since Bug was my kitten and didn't belong to a rescue group. However, I had covered most of her medical/other expenses and if she wanted to cover part of that, I would appreciate it. Jane wrote me a check and I didn't even look at it, just folded it and put it in my back pocket. Now, those couple of weeks were nuts and by Monday afternoon, I was wondering where the check was. And then it dawned on me....I had run it through the wash. I checked that night and the check was fused in half with another receipt I had shoved in my pocket. I emailed Jane to let her know the check wasn't ever going to clear the bank and didn't think anything about it. And then I got a text from her yesterday:
"Just wanted to let you know...I finally sent a replacement check. We would also like to continue sending checks each month to help pay off all of Bugs medical bills so you can keep on saving kittens like Bug. We love her so much."
Say it with me: awwwww
I don't do this for any pay back (though I will pay it forward with their money and use it with other kittens). For me, it is all about seeing my kittens find wonderful forever homes. And I know Bug has a winner here. Hard to believe she is already 5 months old. I will post new pictures as I get them, but I had to share this text from her family.
