On this day, 9 years ago, Devon came to live with me. He had been found a few weeks prior in the woods, and was being raised by Momma Carol. I would email her almost daily, saying that I would like to foster this cutie. She would respond...he doesn't need a foster home, he needs a permanent one.
I had 6 fosters at the time and really didn't have any more room...so I told her when my kids were adopted, I would be able to take him. She brought him to adoptathons so I could play with him and love on him. At one event a gentleman came up and was interested in Devon. Everyone there had suspicions about this man, and was like, oh no...this lady over here (pointing at me) is adopting him. The man came over to me and asked, are you adopting this kitten? I had a weird feeling too, and was like, absolutely, this kitten is mine.
As luck would have it, my fosters were ALL adopted that day, and Devon came home with me! He was about 5-6 weeks old, and eating on his own. He was spoiled rotten from day one, and we've tried our best to keep him that way :)
Thanks for being a great cat Devon!! I am so blessed to have you in my life!
PS - It's also Aunties birthday today...
