Trust you?

This was taken during Annabelle's first week with me.
You can see the lack of trust.
She was hiding.

I don't think she was well treated where she 
was before I adopted her.
It's telling that she was an owner surrender to
a high kill shelter.
In fact, if the rescue group had not been there
that morning, because she was considered
an adult, they would have euthanized her
that day.

It makes me shudder to think
that could have been her fate, and the fate of 
her juvenile kitten.

If only I could have gotten both of you Annabelle.
It is a sadness I have for you.
But your kitten was adopted before you,
it only happened a few days before I adopted you.
I would have adopted you both.
It's strange to have a regret
that you had no control over, but I do.
Annabelle is such a little Momma cat.


  1. So much love you had for her

  2. I didn't know you were a mom, Annabelle! That would have been so nice if both of you could have been adopted together. How awful that the two of you were left at a kill shelter, and how fortunate that there was a rescue ready to take you in.

  3. We are so glad you were spared and rescued to a loving home...forever!
    Hope your baby is happy now too.

  4. We are so glad you and your baby were rescued from that shelter!
    While you don't have your baby, we are glad it was adopted too.
    Now you can are safe and loved.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  5. I am glad that you have come out of your shell and we get to see how cute you are all over the place!

  6. Annabelle, you are blessed to land in your home with your mom. I'm so sorry to hear about your sad past. You are such a sweetheart.

  7. Annabelle is a lucky girl, and I'm sure her kitten went to a loving home, too, though it's hard to imagine a more loving one than Annabelle's.

  8. You scored the love big time sweet Annabelle!

  9. Oh Annabelle, we are so glad that you found such a great home. You are such a pretty kitty.

  10. Oh my goodness you two were meant to be together.
    The very same situation might have happened with both my human Sis's kitties. She and BIL saved them both from kill shelters 2 months apart...Sis says the kitties saved them
    Hugs madi your bfff

  11. Your eyes show you want to trust but are afraid to. You came to the best and most loving home you could wish for, Annabelle.

  12. annabelle....we iz buzzed happee yur mom waz in de rite place at de rite time; we noe ewe both R mor than buzzed happee....~~~~~~~~~ waves two everee one & heerz two a bumblebee goby kinda week oh end ~~~~~ ♥♥♥

  13. I am so glad you rescued Annabelle and at least her kitten was adopted. I completely understand how you feel. When I adopted Joanie and Sammy there was a 3rd sibling already adopted. They had been together 4 and a half years in their other home and I feel so bad that their family got broken up.

  14. We're so glad that the rescue was there at the shelter to pull Annabelle so she could be waiting for you to fall in love with her. She has come a long way, hasn't she?

  15. We can't even think that a beauty like Annabelle may have come to an unfortunate end. Thank cod for the rescue...and you.

  16. No regrets...Debra. Saving Annabelle was a wonderful thing, ad we are going to believe her kitten is having just as great a life. I cannot understand anyone surrendering a kitty to a sure death sentence. Some of our transports have been surrendered kitties, and I often wonder why. We are so happy that Annabelle is now in your amazing loving home. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
