KC: Day 7 - One Week Anniversary

Here is KC today, 7/29, one week after arriving in Houston.
Below are a couple of pictures for comparison.
This is the infamous "LA Outlaw" mug shot taken Sunday, 7/16.
KC had just been brought in and photographed when Karen C dropped by the shelter.
On Friday 7/21, KC was freed after a day of phone calls from Deb*
She spent that night with Karen C. & family.
You could already see the relief in her face.
* She who must be obeyed

I love comparing the pictures - she's changed so much in her whole outlook on life. Have you decided what day you're going to use to celebrate her birthday?

isn't amazing just how much the expression on her little face changed in one week? from a terrified little kitten to a one who knows she is loved and has a forever home. isn't love wonderful?! bless you karen c. and deb for all of your hard work and persistence. bless you ml for opening your heart and home and taking her in.little kc will have what every kitty should have in this world - love and a forever home. now if we can just figure out how to save the rest of the kitties in this world (or at least as many as we can). guess we have our work cut out for us.

Very well put, Moms. I could see a huge difference in the "outlaw" mug shot and when she was at Karen's. And then look down at Day 6, right under this, that little face is so different. Poor little baby.

Yes, if we could just save them all. Guess that could be another motto for us: saving the world one kitten at a time. Oh, that we could.

And Karen, maybe you can help me guestimate a birthday for her???

KC: You are just so adorable! ML: when we got her last Saturday, she was about four weeks old. I think July 1st would be a great birthday!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hi Ariel, didn't recognize you for a second (didn't look like the picture on Kat's -- ha ha). You are really a beautiful gir.

Amazing! Proof of what love does. My Mittens was the same in the shelter, sad, afraid, growling. Bless you.

We got the email with the pictures, and we're forwarding it to other people. We hope that helps. We don't know of anyone personally who wants a feline at the moment unfortunately.

Hello my sweet KC! I agree with Momsbusy, it is amazing how she has changed. Cue the music: "All you need is love, da tada tada"! I know KC is getting lots of love and giving it right back!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Whoops, MDP strikes! I WANTED TO GIVE KUDOS TO KAREN C., WITHOUT HER, WHO KNOWS WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THIS SWEET KC. KAREN C. YOU ARE OUR HERO! WE LOVE YOU!!!

KC is beginning to look so much better. You can see it in her eyes.

Purrs little one.

I have 2 thoughts on the baby's birthday. It could be June 24th, which is the day that Cairo made her car trip to Kathleen and Brutus and Marigold made their airplane trip to Rose. This would make KC 5 weeks old as of yesterday and is a great day to remember because of the other 2 events.
My other thought is June 26th, which would make her 5 weeks old tomorrow. The reason for that date is that my grandmother went to collect up her very large family of cats and dogs who were waiting for her at the Rainbow Bridge on that date: 6/26/03. She was the best person I've ever known and loved all animals, especially cats. She took in any animal who needed a home. She passed away at age 92, but was active and still caring for "her babies" till she died. (the ones that outlived her are being taken care of by my aunt)

Hi Mary Lynn. Nice to meet you! Princess Mia and I are in the Montrose area.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Karen, I love the idea of KC's birthday being on June 26th. Your grandmother sounds like she was an amazing person....just like you. What do you think ML?

Rose said...

Yes, Karen, June 26th sounds like the ideal birthday anniversary for K.C. I believe your grandma had a hand in your finding K.C. I really believe that...

Eric and Flynn said...

What a pretty little kitty cat you are KC and you do look so much happier and loved now

Cecilia said...

Aaahw. She is so pretty and looks at peace in her new home.

Sex-C KC

Karen C.was able to meet Norma, animal lover and long time rescuer. Norma offered to foster the beautiful shelter kitty we've named Jade (because of her eyes). I think it was just in time, because Jade has been too scared at the shelter to eat and has lost so much weight you can feel every bone. Norma is an artist who works from home (and does beautiful paintings), and is a lovely person. Jade now has a quiet loving home with a patient woman who's willing to help her adjust. Unfortunately, Jade's reactions indicate that she was probably abused, so the adjusting may take some time. Please pray that this sweet kitty can get healthy again and learn to trust. And, thank God for Norma!

KAREN C: ANGEL TO ALL KITTIES!!

Rascal said...

Dear Mary Lynn, Thank you for the nice things you said about me on Kat's Cat of the Day. I've read about you on some of the other Cat blogs I read and it is nice to meet you.
Love, Rascal

P.S. My Mom says KC is very very cute.
