Adopting Lily (TigerLily)

I finally decided that Dakota
did need a playmate at home
and I  decided on a kitten 
for him....which by the way
was a big leap cause neither 
him or I have ever been around
a kitten. 

I then had to locate one.
I wanted a short hair, female
and once I put it on FB that is what 
I wanted a friend told me about
Country K9 Rescue that they had
just taken in about 50 kittens. 

I found out with a text to a 
woman with K9 that she had
3 females that were ready for
homes and they had been fostered
with dogs. 

I was to meet her the next day
at PetSmart. 
When I got there she was removing
kittens from crates and putting them
in a larger fence like crate on a table.
I told her who I was  as she was putting
kittens in the crate.. I was standing at
the left hand corner of that said crate and 
even though she had put a couple of
males in the crate they proceeded to 
start playing, ignoring me.
But she put the first female in
and she came right over to where 
I was standing. The lady then handed
me a beautiful soft gray and white 
female. I petted on her but my eyes
did not leave that first female. 
I told her I really wanted to see
that one. As it was Lily adopted
me so I had to take her home.

And look at that face!

Dakota was at mom's when we got
home so Lily did not know at the 
time that she would have a brother....
and on the flip side, he did not
know after 10 yrs I brought a 
KITTEN in this house!

I was afraid how it would go but
mom delivered him home, he came
in, sniffed at Lily and with in
two days they were playing. 

I really don't think it would have 
gone this well if I had brought
a puppy, dog or full grown cat
in our home. 

It was a great match for
Dakota and I. 
We love our Lily Bit. 

Come back again for more interesting
stories on these two.
