Flashback Friday with Levon .

LP, " If you have been visiting  since Lewis left us and since the arrival of the kitten babies , you already know that we were supposed to only get one kitten , Malou. If you don't know the story,  you can read it in my archives , under the post " Lewis ' Kin ". When Malou wasn't thriving, my friend Tracy asked me to choose another kitten as she felt Malou wouldn't live much longer and she still wanted to give us the gift of a kitten. Tracy would send me pics of the kittens early on and I would barely look at Levon. He simply didn't seem like a possible choice from the very beginning since he reminded me so much of Lewis . It was almost painful to look at him. Then one day she sent me the pic I will show you below. I don't know why exactly, or what changed in me but when I saw this photo of Levon , I had a very strong feeling that were it possible to translate that feeling into words , the feeling would have conveyed , " You belong with me" . Suddenly Levon wasn't a black and white cat that sadly reminded me of Lewis in all his familiarity anymore but  rather , he was a unique little individual in need of a home. And that home had to be with us."

LP , " In the beginning there were three little kittens ..."

LP, " One of which was a little black and white boy that LP willed to stay away from her ..."

LP, " Not even this adorable picture of the little black and white kitten baby kissing his littermate could break her resolve..."

LP, " Nor did this adorable photo of a food smeared face soften a heart hardened against little black and white kittens...

LP , " But when LP saw this photo she didn't have a chance or any resolve left whatsoever. She saw fireworks, stars, flowers, open fields, sunshine and lollipops which of course meant she had to bring the little black and white kitten home without a moment's hesitation. And she has never since regretted her decision. Not even for a second !"

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you Monday.
