One year ago today we were contacted by Upper Credit about a 24-hour-old kitten in need of foster. At the time we had a nursing mother and two kittens and the hope was that the mother would care for her. Well no such luck!! Mama wanted nothing to do with the little kitten. So we decided to give it a shot and bottle feed this tiny 2 ounce kitten thinking she didn't stand much of a chance.
The tiny tortoiseshell hung on week by week and we nicknamed her "Tortellini". It was a long time before she was up to standard adoption weight but when the time came around to return her to the shelter my husband and I faltered. How could we possibly send her back?? But we already had 2 cats and a dog...well that didn't matter, little Tortellini had worked her way into our hearts and there was really only once choice. We would now be a three cat family! We officially adopted Tortellini as our own in November 2013 and haven't looked back since.
Yesterday Tortellini hit the 1 year mark and we couldn't be happier!
