It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Minettes Story

Once upon a time, there was a kitten named Minette.
She found her home quite by chance, she was alone in a big place called Animalkind, where all the humans were super nice and she was the only kitten there.
She had been found by a nice person who discovered her, in the snow, under a bridge, curled up next to her mama , who had died.
The kind stranger rushed the kitten to the vets at Animalkind where they warmed her up and gave her medicines and made her well.
One day, this lady came in  .. she walked in the door and everyone said hello to her. The nice people at Animalkind knew the lady from her visits there, she was a sad lady. She talked to them about getting a kitten. There were no kittens and she told the people there, When the time is right, there will be a kitten and we will be right for each other.
The lady came in and walked towards the desk, noticing that all the enclosures were empty.
She did not look behind her, at the kitten following her ... that was me.
She said to the lady at the desk, There are No Kittens ??
And the lady just shook her head and pointed behind her ... to me.
The lady turned around and saw that I was standing behind her, waiting for her to notice me. To take me home with her.
She laughed, she said I didn't even see you ! and picked me up.
She held me, looked at me, whispered something to me and then turned and told the ladies at the desk, I will take her home with me now.
And she did.
And we are living happily ever after.
Oh yeah, she saved Merlin too and now there is Honey !!
Those are other stories for another day.
This is My Story.

Dearest Candice,
One wonders how they ended up in the snow under that bridge... Were they being put out there by some mean person?
So glad the kitten got rescued and pepped up and that she selected you to be her new human Mommy!
Very touching and happy with the ending of it.
Hugs and blessings,

Someone found Minette, in the snow, huddled next to a dead female cat. In the snow. So they figured it was her mother. Starving, freezing, who knows, it was dreadful and thank god, Minette lived.
That area is rural, farms etc .. although Minette, according to the vets , is a Russian Blue. Her mama might have just gotten out one day when they were opening a door and they searched and could not find her.
I am just thankful they found Minette in time.
