With great embarrassment, I admit that I've been grumbling around about the number of black kittens in our program. "How on earth will they ever get adopted? Etc, etc.
Shame on me.
I rescued 2 more black kittens from the shelter today with great trepidation. A million "what if's" went through my mind and a huge sense of guilt for feeling that way. I mean - ALL of our kittens at Petsmart were black!
We have a foster Mom that works full time and has two little boys. She had taken in a black Mom and her 4 black kittens. She's on holidays all week and decided that she would spend her vacation at Petsmart getting her black foster kittens adopted. Today, her remaining two black kittens were adopted together. All this on the same day that I was kicking myself for rescuing two more black kittens.
I don't believe in coincidences. Shame on me. Really.
Business decisions getting in the way of rescuing. How I hate that!! Sometimes I don't know that I'm thinking in a business sense until something like this comes along and kicks my ass back to reality. They all deserve homes - regardless if colour or number of appendages.
On a happier note, we not only rescued two black kittens today, but also an adorable grey one, and two tabbies. I had the tabbies in my washroom this afternoon and walked in to this:
You're never too old or too knowledgeable to learn a lesson. I'm putting my story about the black kittens "out there", to help others understand that patience and perseverance pays off. Thank you Melissa for taking teaching this old gal a lesson and working so hard to get your kittens a wonderful home.
Go easy on me.
