A Message From Garnet


"Wait... Garnet has another new mama?"

"That was awfully fast, wasn't it?"

"Well, it's about time the right mama came along. Don't you think?"


You know those old platitudes? It's always darkest before the dawn? Every cloud has a silver lining? Everything happens for a reason? Within 24 hours of Garnet's arrival back in Teeny Tiny Tabby Town, she was spoken for all over again... and I could never have dared to hope, dream, or pray for such a wonderful match as was made for our Miss Garnet.

You see, dear readers, our Garnet has been claimed by one of you! Someone who has loved her since she was this little:

Someone who fell in love with the stink eye.

Someone who adored her spunky sense of adventure.

Someone who gave her heart to Garnet months ago. Someone who had come to me in the past and asked to adopt her. But as life got in the way, our plans fell through. So Garnet went off to have her misadventure with another family instead.

Well, as luck would have it, this certain someone had become a friend on my personal Facebook page a while ago. So she became privy to the information regarding a kitten's return to Teeny Tiny Tabby Town before the rest of you. I didn't name names, but somehow she knew that her Garnet had become available again. And before that night's blog post even announced her return to the rest of the world?

She was spoken for all over again.

Garnet will still be with us for another two to three weeks while we figure out the logistics and plan a most excellent road trip. You see, our teeny tiny gem is getting ready to become a southern belle. Garnet is moving to Alabama in December... and I couldn't be happier about it. Call it Karma. Call it Fate. Call it whatever you want. I'll call it perfect.

You know what the best part of reader adoptions is, don't you? Updates, lots and lots of updates!


There's still one more kitty left here in Teeny Tiny Tabby Town who would love a home in time for Christmas. And I would love to send her to one of you... provided you really truly love her and promise to send lots of updates. 

Operation "Get All-the-Way Mae All-the-Way Home" commences later this week. Stay tuned.


  1. YAY for Garnet, and YAY for her new family for being able to take her, congratulations to them

    Purrs for Mae, May your people show up soon.

  2. YAY Garnet and paws crossed for Mae!!

  3. What amazing news -- many congratulations to Garnet and her Forever Mum. You're next, Mae, and may the ideal family find you very soon. Kelly, how have the two girls been getting on?

  4. Wow... that's just amazing. Garnet's new mom is awesome and I can't wait for them to meet ... and of course for us to get updates! :D


  5. Wow!! What happy news for Garnet! Yay...

  6. You know it's love when you travel cross country to get to someone! :) Yay for Garnet becoming a Southern Belle (we also give good stink eye, if I do say so myself!) and sending good wishes for Mae to go all the way home soon!

  7. Robyn and Fred are adopting Miss Garnet? Wow!!! ;-)

    1. HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think Robyn and Fred have quite enough kittens to choose from already. Although we did discuss a Crooked Acres sleepover last week when talking about transporting Garnet south.

      Robyn said she'd make room in the coop for me. Someday I'll take her up on it too ;)
