At 9.09pm tonight, dear sweet Tiffy left to go back home to Melissa and family. I will miss this kitten, even though she was with me for less than a week.
It really doesn't matter how long each cat or kitten lives with me. The moment they enter my life, my heart opens up to them and I love each one dearly. And when they leave, I am left to down a cocktail of relief, happiness and sadness.
And I will definitely miss Tiffy.
But I am very happy that she is going back to a loving home where she'll be safe. Plus she'll get to be with her big brother, Gucci, again. I don't think she enjoyed being alone very much whenever I had to leave her for work. I've come to believe very strongly that kittens should always be kept with another cat or kitten. It keeps them alert and playful, agile and sociable, and more importantly, happy.
Melissa will be taking both kitties to the vet this weekend. I hope they'll both be given a clean bill of health.

Satisfied he snuggles up close to her for a comfy nap
Sleep tight, my little ones... May you always be together... forever.
