Pearl


This is one of my "stitching buddies", Pearl. We rescued Pearl in January in freezing ice and snow from an Industrial Park where Pearl and her litter mates had been abandoned. Pearl was the only survivor. Had her vet-checked and off to our farm, for a new life of love and warmth. Three days after bringing her home, Pearl became ill. At the animal hospital, we were told Pearl would not survive the night. But she did! We made several trips a day to the animal hospital to sit in the quarantine unit, and hold this tiny kitten with ivs, laying on a heating pad; letting her know that she was not abandoned again.
Ten days later, we were able to bring our 1 1/2 pound girl home from the hospital. Pearl was named after all the beautiful black pearls we saw in Tahiti. We are smitten by our fuzzy black Pearl!

Pearl is beautiful!! I hope you will post more pictures of her in the future...,Maine Coons have such gorgeous eyes, don't they? Ollie's eyes are green too, but a paler shade....

Thanks Linda, this little girl has the most beautiful eyes that I've not been able to capture with my camera. They are a stunning lime green with turquoise in the center. Aren't we the lucky ones to be able to adopt such fabulous little spirits?

What a beautiful "Pearl" indeed. I too rescued a pet this past June. A little female chihuahua I named Bella. It didn't take long for me to realize that Bella "chose" me to rescue; on a level so profound and spiritual that words fail to describe. We are the one's truly blessed when these "angels" enter into our lives as they inevitably adopt "us" ;-)
