Honey Boo Boo may be the cutest kitten ever. Although if you ask Blaine he’ll say she’s of average cuteness and that I think all kittens are the cutest kitten ever. I think he’s downplaying how cute she is out of fear of me wanting to keep her. And he should have that fear because this little lady has stolen my heart over and over. If you follow me on instagram, I’m sure you’re already tired of seeing photos of her.
Around Halloween my sister and I pulled into the driveway and saw a kitten run into our gated front yard. Then disappear. A few days later Blaine found a kitten in the garage. While we were trying to catch her she squeezed under the garage door and ran away. Soon after he found her in there again. We blocked off the bottom of the garage door and finally, after about 20 minutes, caught her. She was scared, skinny and pretty pissed off.
No one would take her. We tried craigslist. We tried a rescue. They said to call back when she was friendly and lovable. So that’s what I did. I cuddled her like crazy and got her used to lovin’. We’ve had her over a month now and I just love her to pieces. She lives in my office so I hang out with her all day. Her first adoption event was last Saturday and she has another this week. While I’ve fallen in love with her and wish with everything in me that we could keep her, I know we are way past capacity for animals and hope that she can find a home soon.
This first photo makes me so sad. It was taken right after we caught her and she was terrified.
But then we cuddled her every single night on the couch.
And then I moved her from a crate in the sunroom to my office so we could hang out together all day.
And then the time came for her first adoption event.
And when she came back the next day she was SO happy to be “home”.
Then the poor thing went to the vet overnight to be fixed. When I picked her up the next day she looked so confused and scared. I put my hand in her crate before starting the car to go home and she instantly started purring and falling asleep.
Here’s hoping that my little Honey Boo finds a home this weekend or I might have to adopt her myself. And then my husband might leave me.
