Two years ago lost my 21 year old feline friend. A year later I shared my dream with Mike Dooley to have another, but the timing had to be right. After 2 years of waiting till the house construction was done, my “cat – ernal” instinct became stronger and stronger. However I had very specific needs, female, tortoiseshell mid length hair, good personality, easy to train… most of all my husband had to be comfortable with her (before meeting me and my previous cat he was not comfortable with cats. Probably passed on by his mom who was terrified of cats and dogs). So I needed to get a kitten. Miko my last cat had all of these aspects except that she was an adult when I met my husband and though I did not expect the same cat, I did require the same potential.
I started visualizing daily April 2nd. being grateful for all I had and was attracting. I experienced quite a few almost but not quite kittens and cats ( I call this the Universe asking if I am sure I really want what I want). Then the day of my birthday (June 25th) I felt particularly down, I really thought I would have found what I was looking for and started thinking maybe I needed to compromise. I knew I had to change my emotions so I told my husband we needed to go out and have fun (which we did). That evening as we cooked together and laughed I received a call from one of the inquiries I had sent a few days back. It was like many of the hunches I had followed, this one was on the internet but the difference was that no picture was included. I could not see if this was indeed what I was looking for. However from the call the description it seemed to fit.
Two days later I went with my husband to meet this young kitten. The first thing my husband said was how beautiful she was. So home came our new feline friend. Perfect for us and exactly what we wanted. She was born on April 10th … 8 days after I began working on attracting her into my life. So though at the time, I felt it was starting to take to long, in the big picture – the timing was perfect in order for me to have what we wanted at the age we could have her which was close to 2 months.
