So we went to the pet store today to pick up some cat food and since it's Saturday we got there just in time to see all the adorable pets up for adoption. I immediately went over to the adoption area while hubby got the stuff we actually came in for.
There were about 4 dogs hanging around - a scotty, a bulldog (i think) something else and a chihuahua. The Chi was about a year old they said and it was so scared it was shaking in it's little cage evertime someone came up to it.
They have about 10 cats in carriers outside the small area they have for adoption cages and then all the cages inside were full up of cats. I went inside and immediately fellin love with all of them. There was a cat there that looks just like our Kaguya in the face (except she had more tabby markings than Kaguya - K is pretty straight grey except in her face) and a small calico right beneath that reminded me of Kohana. They surprised me with about 4 black cats in different cages (2 of which were siblings and sleeping with each other in their pet bad) a GORGEOUS fluffy white cat about a year old who lived in an entirely pink abode (SO CUTE!!!) 1 kitty whose label said they preferred to be the ONLY CAT and would be extremely loving to people and follow from room to room (kinda sounded like Kaguya there) and a tiny 6 month old tabby who looked so much like Kikyo it almost broke my heart.
The Kikyo tabby was the only one to come to the cage door and beg for pets. And she begged. When i went to walk away she reached her paw out of the cage and tried to grab my coat. (which prompted me to pet her some more). If we would have had $85 i may have gotten soft and taken her home with us (like we need another cat right now - or ever!)
As we were leaving we saw quite a few people with cats in pet carriers with grocery baskets FULL of stuff, which totally warmed my heart. And hubby donated $2 to animal rescue along with our purchase.
As we were pulling away we started talking about our kitties (who were both rescued - Kaguya from a shelter and Kohana from the streets) and then moved onto Kikyo (who was also a street rescue) and out of nowhere I began to cry. And I couldn't stop no matter how hard i tried.
Guess it's always gonna hurt to remember her, just didn't expect it today.
R.I.P my darling Kikyo. I'll forever miss you.
