Hi Everyone,

I sent home one of my original girls to her new pet home today... I am thrilled to pieces because she went home with a couple whom I've gotten to know very well over the past eight months (they were bringing home a pair of kittens that got very sick after their shots and ended up passing away- it was very hard on us all!)- I know they will spoil her and love her rotten and she will be the pampered Princess she was born to be (she has always been pampered, but now- no more babies ever!)...

BUT I'm sad too! :ThumbsDown: I will miss her so much- she had the best personality of any of my cats and I just wish I had more ROOM and MORE TIME! I had fiddled with keeping her as a spayed pet, but in the end- I know she'll get more attention in a home with just one more cat (they are actually bringing home one of the baby boys in 7 more weeks) then she could get here in a cattery setting.

She is actually this couple's FIRST pet! They've been together like 8-10 years, but never had a pet. They've went and bought all kinds of goodies and just are the best home.

Bittersweet day!

awww I would feel the same way. I always felt sad when rehoming my rescues or DSH kittens. It did feel good to know they went to good homes tho but I know what you mean. I'm sure we all do on here!

I'd have to think that this is the hardest part of breeding.....but just as the old saying goes, "It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all" At least you know that she'll be loved and spoiled furrrrever, and hopefully her new family will give you lots of updates and pictures! Sending my best thoughts and wishes to you and the new family :)

I always feel the same way.
I ended up keeping a few of the ferals I tamed.
I also kept Cocos girl.
How could I take her kittens away when she was such a good mom.
Sadly I lost Stormy at age 5 from ARF.
I still get to see Cocos son.
I know how you feel.
I hope they send pics and keep in touch with you.
Wrinkles breeder loves getting pics.

I'm sure it was really hard to let her go... but just think of how happy they're going to make each other. It sounds like a perfect match. :)

Sending you soothing thoughts Sleepyheadkitten. Just like you said, you know your girl will be loved and pampered by a great couple. But still, loving something with all your heart hurts sometimes. Hopefully the bittersweetness will turn more sweet soon.

Congrats on finding her a forever home that you feel will be a wonderful place! It must be difficult. I honestly do not think I would make a good breeder. I would wind up keeping them all and become one of those crazy cat people you see on Hoarders.
