Sprout (the kitten) update

Tiny Sprout on the day she was found (1st week of Feb)
In case you missed it, here is the story of how Sprout the kitten was found.

And here is the story about her being adopted by a mother cat with two nursing kittens at Vinmer Vet Clinic.
Sprout as of yesterday
Yesterday before yoga class, one of my students and I went to see Sprout, as Vinmer is near to The Sangha (formerly Moksha Yoga Trinidad).

Sprout is a lot bigger now—almost the size of the other two kittens who were about three times her size when I first took her in. For the whole time we were there visiting, Sprout was suctioned onto a nipple, drinking to her heart's content. Once finished, she lazily pulled herself away and fell asleep.

She is up for adoption and deserves a loving home. If you are a genuine cat lover, please consider her as your new companion. You can call Gina (the Vinmer vet) at 628-2773 to arrange a visit.

Very sweet up date. I do hope Sprout finds a warm and loving home soon/or when she is ready.
I thought you were going to tell us your friend took her home with her. It must have been hard to leave her there! Good luck Sprout.

Elspeth,

I just wanted to let you know that I went to see Sprout today, and have decided to adopt him. BTW he is a boy. I have no clue how I stumbled upon your blog yesterday, and read the "update" posting. Before I had even read the first posting of his rescue and survival, I had already decided that I would adopt him. After reading that first posting about his survival and yoga start...I absolutely knew he was the kitten for me. I have spent months pondering the adoption of a kitten, as I lost my beloved 13 year old cat last April. Ironically his name was Baby Cat...and he was 27lbs of girth. My heart has been broken since his passing, and I did not think I would ever be able to have another cat. But Sprout has changed that.

I was always told that I would know when the time was right...and I know that this is that time. I have to wait three weeks before bringing little Sprout home....

Thanks so much for rescue-ing him...nurturing him....and blogging about him.

Warm regards,

Halcyon
