Ella's kitty Mittens..
My mom got a kitten from my brothers family named mittens last year. Ella never paid much attention to animals around her. When she met mittens though, there was an instant connection. Mittens would lay by her and on her, and I'm not sure if it was the purring Mittens did, but Ella loved it.. she would be fussy and we'd put mittens by her and she would hush..Ella would run her fingers through the cats fur as long as we let her and mittens didn't mind at all..it was so very sweet. My mom even got her a long haired stuff kitty in the hospital thinking she would pet it.. she did some, but not nearly as much as mittens..If Ella was at my moms house, she was by her, she would pace when Ella cried and seem very stressed out.. if anyone walked towards Ella when she was sleeping, mittens would quietly meow, as in saying "let her sleep" it was adorable.
This year on Ella's first birthday, mittens had babies.. we were so excited.. mom is keeping one, and we are taking one and another is going to one of my moms friends.. The one we are taking is named Grayson.. he looks just like our cat that died right before Ella was born.. his name was meow and he was my baby for a very long time.. I was so upset when he died.. and one of Ella's kitty's not only looks like him, but acts like he did also.. maybe a gift from my sweet baby.. this is Grayson..(cayden named him, not really sure why that name, but oh well)My mom is keeping the little girl. Her name is Cinder.. we always called Ella, cinderella, so this seemed to fit.. Cinder is sassy and dainty and so prissy.. sound like anyone else we know??
I know it may seem crazy to be so excited about kittens, but its nice to think that maybe these little things were a gift from our girl.. I don't know if she see's down from heaven or is too busy bossing everyone else around, if nothing else, it warms my heart to believe its all more than a coincidence..
I love you sweet baby girl and promise to take care of your kitties..
